Chicagoland December Battletech game
« on: 03 November 2019, 00:19:45 »
Hello,

The annual December "Kill the agents" will be on December 21st.

The game is at Games Plus.
(Start time approx. 11:00)
101 W. Prospect Ave.
Mt. Prospect, IL 60056
Phone: 847-577-9656
http://games-plus.com/

The rules for the players are as follows:
1. You must select 2 book stock mechs from any TRO up to and including 3085. Record Sheet products are also okay. It must have a legitimate record sheet. Experimental units are not allowed from those products either.
2. No artillery of any kind is allowed.
3. Any type of c3 is only shared between your two mechs. Just the same, Narc or any other group benefit weapon only helps your 2 unit team.
4. You get 6000 BV2 to pick your units. This includes their piloting and gunnery and other modifiers to BV such as c3.

The standard Chicago rules apply.

I some nice prizes up for grabs. I will post pictures of some as the date gets closer.

If you have any other questions, please feel free to ask.

I plan on being there for a couple hours as I'll need to head out as I'll need to work at midnight.  From what I am looking at I'll need a Rifleman and a Warhamster for this one.

And I assume we should make sure we're using the new table for those skill-adjusted BVs. I gather it's already there if you look things up on masterunitlist.

Based on what was said, I would trust the MUL for P/G.

Looking at coming down from Frozen North (Marshfield, WI), depending on weather of course.  Printed out two mechs from Solaris Skunk Werks which appears to calculate the BV2 into the mech costs (manually calculated using the chart in Tech Manual).  Question I have, is it just better pilot skills or are pilot abilities allowed?  I.E. like those for Alpha Strike.

Just piloting and gunnery. The piloting abilities would add a level of complexity and i want to make sure this would be easy for anyone to join.

Night before callout to remind people that I will need to borrow a Rifleman and a Warhammer for this one.  I see my printer is being a pain tonight.  Can someone print out 1-2 sheets each of a Rifleman-7M and a Warhammer-7S each with 2-2 pilots?

So if he brings a knife, you bring a gun?  ;D

Waving from Milwaukee, won't make it today but maybe sometime

Looking forward to it, I should probably finalize my 'Mech selections  :-\

I can print those sheets, and I can bring a Warhammer. I don't have a Rifleman though.
