Alpha Strike Companion or...
« on: 29 October 2022, 13:15:34 »
So, seeing a lot of questions about things in the Alpha Strike Companion, as well as having my own, which do you think would be better.

Rerelease the Alpha Strike Companion updated to handle everything the Commander's Edition doesn't have and any potential missing errata.

OR

Update the Tech Manual, and various Ops books to include the Alpha Strike information missing from the Companion that the Commander's Edition didn't include.

AFAIK, the only thing AS:CE is really missing are the conversion rules.

Conversion roles and old AS space combat, the former of which was promised to be added on the Downloads page (which still hasn't been done). The latter has basically been erased by the devs citing unsatisfactory implementation, and AS-stats space combat will likely remain the exclusive domain of BattleForce until TPTB find a satisfying alternative.

Right, but how would you prefer to see them made accessible again?  A new/restored document, or incorporated in the various books like BV?

A separate document like the BV changes WOULD be nice.

... by the devs ...
Minor clarification.
Singular "dev".  I don't speak for anybody else, and I'm just one person.  And I'm not the one that decides if/when new products get greenlit.
