I've read things from numerous people whom I trust that suggest this was released far too early and was terrible out of the box.
I know that it's had updated rules and errata, but I'm asking if that has changed this enough to make it a good purchase. I'm interested in comments from people who have played it both before and after the "fixes."
I'm hoping it's been made better as I am a definite fan of the Pacific Theater and card-driven wargames.
Thanks in advance for any info!
Based on the contents of the CSW forum lately, the rules issues have largely died down. There are some concerns with play balance, but the current tournament used bidding with Strategic Will, and all of the games in the first round where it was played with a bid other than the default, the player who gave up points lost.
Mark Herman has stated that he is leaving the rules as they are for at least the rest of the year.
So it looks pretty stable now. Be sure you have the 1.4 rules.
