The problem was that out of the two primary and two secondary effects of Warfare and Logistics, the Logistics primary and Warfare secondary were the most in-demand, and the other two were among the least in-demand. This new balance makes for a better strategy card decision matrix - the most in-demand two are on the same card so you can't get both.

The Warfare secondary (previously Logistics secondary) also now explicitly allows you to move the two ships to an empty system or a system you control, so it's a bit more versatile. You could use it to plop a ship or two into empty hexes just for the sake of slowing down enemy movement (which is what that strategy card effect was explicitly intended for in 3rd edition).

I kinda love it when D'rek unleashes her nerd wrath, as I knew she would here. Sorry innocent bystanders, but someone's gotta be the kindling.

Morgoth, in regards to the planet you placed next to me, initially I thought you screwed me but the blue tech makes it at least acceptable trade for what I gave you. You still got the better end of the deal by far but it could have been worse with what you had available to place.

So, what was everyone's thinking behind giving Morgoth exactly what he needs where he needs it? :)

He's good at this game and we should all gang up on him immediately.

You and IH came out well I think.

Though, looking at the map I’m hardly in the best position.

Itwas-Bliss, we’ll be neighbours almost immediately I expect. Thankfully we have a very obvious border and no systems we’ll be competing over any time soon. That’s an excellent foundation for friendship and trade I think. However, we are very close to each other’s home system, and so I would suggest we exchange Support for the Throne as an added incentive to stay friendly.

When Trade comes around we can exchange commodities too.

What do you think?
