EDIT: Read that wrong.  Costing 2 but affecting multiple attacks just removes the rule from Gunbunnies without really affecting anything else in a meaningful way.

On FA - fixed FA acts as a break on some egregious stuff, and would probably solve a lot of games hinging on list chicken. PP has tied their horse pretty thoroughly to the unlimited FA post, but the SR packet could have different requirements. Heck, they could trial it for a week in CID and see how it goes. Then people can play all the casual games they want with Zounds! Chargers but still prevent it from destroying the competitive meta.
On Caine3 and Chargers, they're not just good with him. People have been spamming them with Jakes2 and finding them fairly egregious. With the addition of power up, Powerful Shot has become a somewhat egregious rule, as it's effectively free. Potentially it's fixable by raising the cost to 2 and having it affect all attacks during an activation. Then it would have an actual resource cost.

Ok, this is what I get for typing as I'm listening, but Jeremy I have NEVER once stated that I thought the proxy thing should be an alternate rule.  NOT ONCE.  I'm pretty torn on what I think the rule should be in fact, I'm actually pretty on board with the intent, I too just don't know how things will be worded.
Jeremy made an overly emphatic and incorrect comment? Hmmm, doesn't sound like him.

I have no idea why, but somewhere in that mess I started reading "Chicago" with a hard "ch" sound in it to alliterate with Chad and cheddar.  :-[

He might have seen someone with the letter C in their name say that.  He then might have thought Chad from Chicago has .C in his name.  Therefore Chad from Chicago probably thinks the exact same thing.  Therefore I will tell everyone it was Chad

That's just telling players it's bad to take more than one or two of the same jack, most of the time for no real reason. Ugh.

In general, while of noble intent, trying to charge a tax for taking multiples of things is too broad of a change to hit the targets you're after without severe unintended consequences.  If nothing else, its hilarious for things like Spell Martyrs.  Also, maybe someday Decimator spam will be a massive concern, but I'll believe it when I see it.

I feel like the answer to this is always to keep FA:U but increase the points cost each time you take the same model. Spam quickly becomes inefficient that way, and if you spam Anyway it cuts down on the number of models you can field.

Just to remind the conversation; one of the biggest spam problems right now is still probably Storm Lances.... at FA:2.

Storm Lances do seem to be an issue to internal balance in Cygnar and overall seem too good for 20 points regardless.
