I'd like to float the idea of a "Tactics Forum" being added to the website.  It would be useful for all of the new players to read how more experienced players tackle situations, and even the most experienced players might pick up a tip or two from someone with new ideas.

An example struck me this morning as I read a comment about using warp in fights.  My first thought was, "What?!?!?" I never use warp speed in fights, it's too draining of energy.  It would be very interesting to read how other captains make this work without running to a base between every fight.

There are other examples.  Does a first-time captain know that a ECM/Nuke "one-two punch" will knock out a crowd of Skarrans all at once?  Is your standard response to a crowd of fighters to load a mine, get a little distance, and drop a suppository for them?  Has everyone thought that a captain low on energy but with lots of time can defeat a group of Torgoths by just sitting powered down on the far side of a minefield and let the elephants run through it?  Does anyone else use the Kaufman Retrograde?

I think a tactics forum would be a good addition to the forum page, and if you add it, I'll even tell you what the Kaufman Retrograde is!  (SFB players, don't cheat and tell them!)

This indeed would be a good idea... This shouldnt be too hard to implement either. Just a simple quick change to the forums and boom, a central area to talk to others about tactics!

Yeah, this would be a great idea.

We already have this section for help requests but no actual section for discussing and debating tactics. It would also offer insight into how people are playing this game, which could be helpful for the developers.

I know that when the community manager got on the Teamspeak channel before 2.0 was released to get some ideas for the 2.0 update, he was rather supprised at some of the things we were doing and some of the things we requested, specifically when it came to PvP. It was great to see alot of the ideas we had be implemented into the PvP system!

This would really make a nice central place for the developers to go to see how many different groups play the game and to learn what needs a lot of tweaking aside from the normal obvious things (Biomech info sometimes showing before even the initial scan).
