Battleboarders - Feedback time... 2 Years, 10 Months ago Karma: 6  
Hello, Battleboarders/Player Refs.

I'm going to make some interim changes to the battleboard tab of the, er, Battleboard spreadsheet. This is something that can usefully be done pending any "Cataclysmic" changes that may be coming.

Since I returned to active playing, I've seen several battleboarders struggling with the board the spreadsheet gives them so, pending other updates, let's look at what we can do in terms of both content and cosmetic changes to make your lives easier and the time-out less stressful.

What's useless. What's missing. What's too small? Too big? In the wrong place?

One pain point I have seen is ACs. What numbers do you want to actually see on the board?

I also remember some issues with spells and slots out but I may have imagined that...

If you don't want to type out a big description: Feel free to sketch stuff out or annotate a printed battleboard, snap a pic with your phone and attach it in any replies.

This is your opportunity to get a battleboard that makes more sense for you.

Thanks,


Mike...

PS Players: I know it may seem that I'm excluding you from this conversation but, useful as the Battleboard may be to you, the actual Battleboard sheet is there primarily for the benefit of your Player Ref. When we come to look at a major revision of the Battleboard, please rest assured that I'll be asking everyone for their opinions and contributions.

Hi Mike

Great stuff!

You mention ACs and indeed they can be annoying, as for any one high-level player you are likely to get a mix of:

- base AC for phys/magic/power
- said ACs with dex
- ACs with dex & all the buffs (obscurement etc)

and other combinations in-between, and it can get pretty messy.

Also, for people who now have HQ abilities of 3 x per day, there's not always room for them on the right hand side boxes where we put long-term skins, dex etc, and you can end up hunting around looking for something in amongst the item section.

Mike,

We need to arrange a meet to discuss as I believe the changes should be released in Feb next year, so would ideally like to get the battleboard refreshed then.

With that in mind may not be worthwhile you doing too much now. However if we have a chat and we give you an idea of what we are doing then it will allow you to see what can be done now and prepare.
