V2 sounds like a good excuse to get the dystopian wars stuff out and get playing again :P

They're play testing at the moment, but rumours say late this year, early next.

The rapid-fire lunch games are good fun, but having the time to play through a decent-sized game is another thing. I had a crack at a 1750pt game a few weeks back now and am looking forward to playing at that size again. I'd like to take it up to a round 2000 pointer as on top of the meatier units in my Navy that lets me fit in the second Tunguska Large Skyship. :) Nothing like bringing a friend.

As an aside, I notice it's the more "mature" gamers around here that seem to be on this D-Wars bandwagon. It's ironic that such a long-form game is mainly played by people who are time-poor with commitments.

Yep, big games are a lot of fun. I have only played 1000pts.

I am unlikely to play any games in the near future that are outside lunch times

What I like is the fact the game scales this way. I hope that is an element that is retained under v2

So Combat Company leaked products early:

Wow. That was a lot quicker than I was imagining. I thought V2.0 wasn't out until next year.

Yup. My Eclipse company :D

Happy about new rules, but I hope there will still be a standard rulebook option!

Is this a big re-vamp, or just a clean-up? Either way, keen on the campaign if it doesn't clash with other commitments :)

My beef with my previous games of DW was that Gunnery was just way better than any other weapon system (making the Americans distinctively better than anything else), and that maneuvring was pretty irrelevant given that all ships, even the big ones, can rotate 90degrees and that most guns are mounted on 270degree turrets (effectively meaning you can target anything).

That said, I've been out of it for a while so a lot of things could have changed with the new factions. And it's such a cool looking game I wouldn't mind getting back into it for a few games.
