Mini-Camp and pushing off the map
« on: July 12, 2005, 08:12:48 am »
Since one way to score points on the enemy is for them to disengage, I was thinking that disengagement has to be a willful decision, and not forced on them.

That being the case: should we say no tractor pushing off the map?  It's a regular (if unrealistic ) tactic employed freely in League games (old ladder leagues as well the PBR), but given the premise of the mini-camp, I think it seems out of place.

Thoughts?

Of course, tractoring to PREVENT disengagement would be perfectly legit.

Damn, there goes my only tactic ...


A lot of players live by the map edge intentionally.  At times, myself included.  If a player wishes to avoid being pushed off...then avoid the edge.  I prefer to not see the rule used, but will be happy to play with or without it.  Your call.

I have concern about the use of pushing off map - my solution to combat it may be off base though.

I have raised at least two concerns thus far where 762 offered a solution that was totally outside of where I was thinking - yet at the same time was the better solution.

I am open to anything (even being told that this is really a non-issue)

Allow the tactic, but a ship pushed off the map is worth no points.

yeah - thought about that too.

That works for me - no points for forcing the disengagement.

But what if you caused internals or crippled the ship before hand?  still grant the points for that?

Right - nice trade off.

Good point.  That would make it the decision of the one doing the pushing.
