I actually think going up to 100pt is a bit much. We’ve been playing at the 50-75pt range and it seems to make the game move faster, adds a little more desperation into the conflict, and makes the players better manage their squadron builds better.
I agree with this completely. I was really looking forward to 100 points but I think I may actually prefer the games I played with fewer ships.
The sweet spots for me are 35 points for quick, furious skirmishes and 70 points for more complex battles. The 100 point games actually hit their stride when yo get to around 70 points, I reckon.
