Alpha Strike Point Value System Open Beta
On February 14, 2014
Alpha Strike is a new, fast-playing form of the BattleTech game of futuristic, armored combat. Developed for the modern tabletop miniatures wargamer, this book brings players the ability to wage war on land, sea, and air using the Quick-Strike game system first devised for truly large-scale play, re-scaled to the tactical level of “classic” BattleTech.
An Alpha Strike Companion is in development for release later this year; check out the BattleBlog showcasing the in-progress outline for this book. And one of the key sections will be an all new Point Value system directly built for Alpha Strike game play. The community can participate directly in this play test by downloading the zip file (the description of the 3 files in the zip is found below), and then coming to the BattleTech forums to share their play testing comments!

PV Test 2014-02-13.xlsx: Spreadsheet contains full stats for nearly all BattleTech units for Alpha Strike, along with new point values derived by excel formulas.
