Also you could have just the standard Planetfall rules but at the end have the opponent able to relocate the dropzone by 45cm or 60cm. Seems simple and not to crazy or hard to deal with.
Or just drop this for now and pick up again after the lists are more settled and developed?
AoC, you just suggested something almost identical to what Dave's idea is.
E&C, it isn't fair to say Dave is jamming the rule down anyone's throat. He is stating rather accurately that 1) there is a dismissive attitude from people here who haven't even tried it; and 2) there is a tremendous amount of support for a planetfall or modified planetfall idea that has never been tested.
If anything is unfair, it is the treatment Dave is receiving. This is the opinion of somebody who has seen the rule in play, doesn't feel all that great about it, and isn't in Dave's play group.
[mod hat on] In addition, the tone of this thread is declining in a negative direction. I would encourage all parties to take a step back for now. [/mod hat on]
@ Zombocom/Neal, despite me wanting it in the list, I am leaning in your direction to be honest that maybe the rule should be just removed.
