POLL DESCRIPTION

In Battlefleet Gothic, one of the weapon types is the Nova Cannon. The procedure for firing these weapons involves players guessing distances to their targets. Critics point out that this gives an advantage to players who are good at estimating distances, and can lead to strategies designed to allow players to measure distances prior to firing their Nova Cannon. The BFG 2002 Annual includes "experimental" revised rules, substituting a scatter mechanism for distance estimates.

What do you think should be done about Nova Cannon?

no change

Keep the rule as it is. I like the game the way it is.

revise as proposed

The "experimental" rule should be adopted as the official rules for Battlefleet Gothic.

I agree there's a problem with Nova Guns, but I don't think the experimental proposal is the right solution.
