200pts Should allow you to buy FOB Recharge/Refill...

Postby Comrade_Bane » Sun 1 Jan 2017 17:02

I actually ran out of Supply the other day (in a 2 hour single player context), and got to thinking: what good are all of these trucks if they cannot carry anything?

For future Wargame reference, I think paying 200pts to recharge/refill a FOB would be an acceptable and fair implementation. To go along with this the FOB initial cost could be bumped back up to 100pts to further balance things out.

-The high cost of 200pts will totally limit the capacity of Arty Campers.
-Recharge/Refill will greatly improve logistics capability
-GREATLY Increases the importance of FOBs AND Supply vehicles,
-While at the same time eliminating battlefield clutter (less need for supply vehicles so long as you protect them).
-Greatly improve immersion in game, as now supply lines become far more important
-Allow for longer single player games

Everyone Wins...

Alternatively EUG could just tweak the whole system to fully support No Time Limit games.
Once 60 minutes have passed, decks starting to refill slowly and FOBs starting to refill aswell.

but finite supply is just another layer of strategy? Why ask for its removal

I don't think it is asking for its removal... unless you were referring to :

In which case i think it is a bad idea to have unlimited supply of anything in a game like Wargame (or really any game for that matter).

As nande pointed out.
What's the difference in paying 200 Pts for a FOB refill or having a trickle supply recovery after 60 minutes have passed.
If you think 200 pts in a 3 hour game is a lot then I got bad news for you

But managing and rationing your supply is part of the game...

Yes, but once 2 hours have passed, it's not about rationing your supply, it's about which tank am I willing to give some fuel so it can move at all.

Right now it's extremely poorly set up to handle No Time Limit games.

This is actually interesting concept, though I think it would be cool to make that option available when you are at least 30 minutes in a match, and I think that the point price is ok, 200 is a sufficient ammount of points needed for a refill that is at the starting sector of the map :)

Another posible idea is increase the number of supply trucks / helicopters per card. For example: x2 to all supply units.
