I seem to have forgotten this

What is the suggested CP limit for a typical, casual brikwars game between intermediate-level players?

does it matter?? you could just play a game that suits your needs i.e. amount of lego bricks, how long you want to take, etc....

at my club we play 100 cps (2005 ed) and get them finished between 2mins and 20 mins...

CP sizes don't really matter unless your unit types are wildly different (e.g. one side fields mostly infantry while the other side deploys mostly tanks). Just make sure each team has a roughly equal number of infantrymen and vehicles. Most of my small battles are limited to "X number of squads, X number of small ground vehicles, X number of small flyers".
Just one random act of violence can brighten your day. Especially if it involves explosives.

200 to 500 CP should give you a decent sized force that's not stretching it if you don't have a lot of Legos.

No CP: just toss into the battlefield everything you want.

And explosives.

Okay slow class, let's do a play-by-play of what I'm asking for with this topic.
First the subject, "I seem to have forgotten this." It indicates that I (1) have played Brikwars before and (2) am searching for information that I can't find anywhere else.
Then I ask for the "suggested CP limit." This means that I intend to use cost points and thus do not want a reply that tells me not to use them. I would like a suggestion of this type and not your damn opinion.
"Typical, casual brikwars game" is an indication of the target size of my brikwars game. Suggesting that I play a game "that suits my needs" is completely unhelpful to me because this is what I am trying to accomplish by posing the question. It's as if I am asking how to operate a fire hose, and you are suggesting that I put out that nearby fire.

NOW...
Give me your opinion how many CPs each player would need for a two player game on a coffee table, counting building. Using a TYPICAL army, meaning proper proportions of minifigs, heros, and special creations. Make it your opinion and an approximation, too.

Aybraus, that's not gonna get much out of anyone, since you just insulted all other form users. You need to stop now before you make some enemies...

I actually thought it was good. I would contribute, but I've never played with CP.

Often, literally, a pillow fight but may include similar situations like volleyball, particularly when wardrobe is skimpy and the action is bouncy.

I did tell you how many; 200 to 500 CP. I only said that it would give you, and I quote;

"a decent sized force that's not stretching it if you don't have a lot of Legos".

That means that you have a force that is "fair, good enough, okay, significant, or substantial" in size according to a dictionary.

You asked for a SUGGESTED CP limit for a TYPICAL game. One, we all gave you our suggestions. I said what I said, other people said other things, including no CP counting which would mean limitless, no? A typical game is also different for everyone. I typically use CP, other people never have. That's the end of it.

Don't be a penis just because people gave you an answer based on your vague question.

Ok... Silvadream, watch where you are stepping. Dangerous creatures lurk in this form.
