Re: Self-aware Ogres and Loyalty

That's not an either/or choice. They could be protecting us by ruling us.



Tyranny has often ended badly with people as tyrants. Why would an artificial intelligence escape that end?

Wasn't there an Operation Newspaper use a huge number of trucks on both sides?

Re: Update 1.5.12.0

That's not a bad tactic; it minimizes the hexes that your tanks and GEVs can fire from.

No person would ever do that. Hard to get more Ogrelike than that.

Will do. I'll be sure they both get in.

Re: How to start an overrun

I think the real bug I want to report is that my SHVY got stuck in rubble.

Rubble has "Same as Swamp for HVY. No effect on movement for SHVY or Ogres," at least on the terrain .pdf I have on my...

Re: How to start an overrun

I had a middle option - forget the words, but "Add more units/come back later to do the overrun" .

And it was a very satisfying overrun - especially as I screwed up my initial deployment, then...

Re: How to start an overrun

Hey, I was able to do it by trying to move that second SHVY out of the hex. Nice.

How to start an overrun

I've got this amazing overrun set up, two SHVYs vs a disabled HVY.

But I can't seem to initiate the overrun. Is there some way to do that, now that all the units are in the hex?

It looks like I...

Re: Ogre Multiplayer Event - Celebrity Special featuring Steve Jackson himself!

Is there a way to pick the scenario to play in Ranked Matchmaking? (If I'm playing the defense then I could be setting up while waiting for an opponent - but only if I picked the scenario.)

Also,...

Re: Question on 'Ramming'

It's doesn't have to be "better than an AP gun," just different.

INF can carry a large number of shoulder-launched, slow, short-ish range, nape-of-earth nuclear missiles that fly to likely places...

Re: How I Came To Love Ogre

Glad to hear you got something useful out of them. I have no idea how many pages of my doodles were fed to shredders.

Re: How I Came To Love Ogre

TL;DR - Ogre taught me probability and saved my mortgage.

I came to Ogre early in life, maybe 1979. I learned fractions and probability via Ogre before we got to it in school. I must have picked...

Re: Question on 'Ramming'

Also try an all-INF tactic in the basic scenario (if your friend driving the ogre is up for a strange game). 46 INF do well by slowing the orge to M2, then stripping off the AP guns. It makes for a...

Re: Question on 'Ramming'

For "why an ogre with no APs can't reduce INF":



The hexes are kilometers wide, the ogre has meter-thick BPC armor, and from GURPS Ogre, have a good variety of specialized ammo, including some...

Re: Question on 'Ramming'

We use a house rule - An ogre can duck out of an overrun after taking its licks for two more fire rounds. An opponent got frustrated that my MkV was stripping all but that last SB on his MkIII,...

Re: Question on 'Ramming'

That's a favorite strategy of mine, recommended by Mr. Jackson himself. Shooting things that shoot back early pays off early. "The Command Post is the reward for annihilating the defenders."

Re: Breakthrough vs AI

Another thing about Breakthrough is that some rules changes (broken river bridge is swamp for GEVs really matters) tilts the game in favor of the defense. It's still fun, but the attacker needs an...

Re: Ogre Miniatures Set 2 - More Stretch Goals

I'll be looking to swap to traditional NAC and PAN colors. (No time to paint. No plans for 3-player games.) See you both at the trading post closer to delivery.

Is this the right forum for swapping? Did I miss the thread?

As a Graduate of The Second Grade you have my full support.

Re: Ogre Miniatures Series 1 delivery thread

The glow from the glow-in-the-dark dice is pretty remarkable - really bright from a very short exposure.
