HGB Feedback Friday Week 6: Followup & New Poll Questions.

Last week we only had 20 members voting on the polls, its a bit low, so we'll leave the polls open to get more feedback from players. For those who did vote we had 90% wanting us to lower the TV on gears with Snub Cannons and Bazookas, like we had in the rolled back January 2018 Living Rulebook Update. We had 65% wanting the Anti-Vehicle Rocket Pack (LRP, MRP, HRP) Area Effect Trait changed to AE:2" and AP:1 added,but we also got a lot of feedback saying that the MRP and HRP should get larger Area Effects, we'll be asking poll questions this week on that. For our Artillery Rockets getting Armor Piercing trait “AP:1” added 90% like that idea. And 80% liked the Combat Weapon getting getting and “AS” Anti-Structure Trait added. But for our increasing the Grenade Launcher PEN levels by 1 to 8/9/10 poll we had 60% for it and 40% against, and some great feedback in the comments, we'll have to do some more playtesting and comeback to this in the future.

Feedback Friday: New HGB Polls & JW Painting Contest Ideas!

Last week we had 32 members voting on the polls with 78% wanting to keep the 90 degree turns in movement, but 72% feeling that Walker movement should be free to move forward or backward, its full movement without having to turn around move and then turn around again as it is right now. The poll on sensors and measuring was a 50/50 split, so we'll have to come back to that later. The Formation poll was 53% not wanting any change and the rest wanting one of the two change options, we'll have to comeback to this in the future as well.
