CP?

Post by BrikDictator » Sat Sep 05, 2020 1:57 pm

Question from a noob:
On a few of the data-cards for special units (heroes, mediks, etc.), there's "X CP" listed in the bottom right. It seems to be different from unit inches, but I can't find a description anywhere in the rule book, so could someone guide me to the right section? Thanks

You would have to look at an older edition of the book (which are available on the wiki). CP was removed for the more streamlined U" system.

Oh ok. I'm just asking since it's still mentioned on the cards, but it's understandable why the wouldn't redesign them for every edition. On a related note, it's probs something similar with "Brikfig" and "Blokbot", right? Since the explanation for 6creants mentioned they can transform into "BlokBots", but BlokBots got renamed into BrikFigs, but they forgot to change the name in the 6creant-paragraph

Brikfigs might be referring to those weird minifigs with a normal minifig head and the body of a brik, hopefully someone else can shed some light on this. I hope they didn't rename blokbots.

Edit: I looked at the "Creatures" section of the rulebook and it looks like they DID rename blokbots into brikfigs, which seems really odd since they've been called blokbots for a decade.

Apparently the things I thought might've been brikfigs are called "blokkelgangers". I really think they should be called brikfigs, and blokbots should stay blokbots. I leave the forums for a year and this what you guys get up to in my absence? :?

Blame these guys. Blok Bots turns out to be a trademark of Mega Bloks, so I had to change it.

Great, another reason to hate that brand of cheap shit. I'm sure your obscure free parody wargame was a huge threat to their bottom line/reputation/whatever bullshit they pulled. :roll:

Also, the complete lack of self-awareness that Mega Bloks has when they are bitching about trademarks when that image is pretty clearly ripping off Transformers: Beast Wars. I mean, "transforming", "cyborgs", "Beastor", fucking seriously?
