Speaking of 103, want a game?
Ya sure.

As far as the scrap thing goes, the effect was not as great as I had originally thought. I was comparing it to bop, before actually downloading and playing it, and was worried it took away too much from the skill players and gave too much to the non-skill players.

In bop mod, it doesn't matter if you are an excellent ship builder or a poor one. A player will max his ship fleet before turn 30, except ferg who can carry a much bigger fleet.

I've tested this with all races. It did not matter if I maximized my ship building efficiency by buying all my ships or whether I just let them pop out normally. Before turn 30 my credits would be too far into the minus to maintain any more ships. Try it if you don't believe me.

So it doesn't take any skill whatsoever to make ships in bop mod. This is what I was worried about when I was discussing 1.03 with Flocke. It does close the gap between good builders and not so good builders but not as pronounced as bop.

Flocke, I was abit too hard on you and apologize for it.

I'm in Warzone when you're ready.

As for BOP, I started my first game of it in the tourney yesterday, and I am not keen on it at all for MP, with most of the reasons you've just said. It will be my first and last participation in a BOP tournament.
