27 or 28 again clearly a 27.5 unit; as spoken once before and Weeds you said your self
how many units fit in that half point category;
With Capital ships i can't under stand why.
With many reads stating how cheap the Essex's are at 27 don't complain anymore!!!
I actually think all the Essex class are undercosted by 2 or 3 points minimum. But as SWO said, what's done is done.
So maybe we should take the Flag 2 off for 27 points? I personally would rather have 28 and Flag 2 almost any day, but if we are going with 27 then we might as well not power creep any worse than they already are.
As an aside, our club rarely plays past 1943 anymore. And certainly not if the US is in play. 1944 and 45 units are just a mess of out-of-balance and chronically under-costed units IMO.

I think its fine at 27. I think many of us agree the CAP 4s are all a bit too inexpensive, but we can't change the fact that they exist. Putting a "I don't like Essex class tax" on this carrier will only render it less used compared to its sisters. House rule them if you want, but the forum has never been in the business of revising existing cards, so to an extent, we've got to live with them. If we can stop going over the same ground over and over again here, I'll stop wanking about no DT on Somers over in that thread.
