Well, that's the story, but I'm having trouble buying it. The final MGT combat system looks to me like it was thrown together at the last minute and there are a number of issues and flaws that make me seriously doubt that there was any extensive playtesting.

If there *was* extensive playtesting, then I think that Mongoose should consider getting a new set of playtesters.

Anyhow, the MGT combat system looks exactly like I'd expect a last-minute, sparsely playtested revision to look.

Details to come after I've completed my workout of the system.

So, this success, like most successes, has a lot of parents. I have no doubt that TBeard played a role in it, but definitely not single-handedly.
I recall being assured by advocates that I was virtually the only one who had a problem with the T/E and initiative system. But after Mongoose abruptly ditched them, it now appears that I was only one voice among many, many others. <chuckle> I'm glad to hear that I was never really alone...

I do not know whether you have any use for it, but here is the link to the
alternative Traveller combat system designed by Settembrini in Germany:

I am sorry that it is in German.
