Is that about a game or the ability to do so in the game?
Or about new games coming out?
Or a place where you can vent about a few things related to the game?
Was going to be the first poster, but I want to start off on the right track. Don't want it pointed in the wrong direction.

Alpha Strike is basically a new battletech rule set. Combat simplifies a lot, but it lets you play a game faster or put a lot more units on the field while still being able to finish in a reasonable amount of time. Say in normal (CBT) rules you'd finish a Lance vs Lance game in an hour or two. You could manage a Company vs Company game in a similar amount of time.

It has its advantages and disadvantages compared to the usual total warfare rules, of course.

Sarna article on Alpha Strike:

Quick start rules are here, for reference:

There was the first Alpha Strike rule set, and then later a companion to that rule set that expanded some things. Recently, there was the Commander's Edition that was released, which basically combines the two under one book.
