Just trying to sort some last things out before I consider pledging.
What does the CCP 209 do? I searched and found no gameplay description of what it is. I am hoping it maybe helps with ...
Have there been any changes or options as to fielding less than 5 player characters while playing the game? It would be nice to not anyone need to worry about running more than 1 dude.

The game is balanced for 5 mercs so the only option is to play with 2 char until one will die of course I didn't read anything official about playing with less than 5 mercs sorry (not a common question)
Cp209 is a opfor so it will not be usable by players
209 is a high level Security Force model (I'd guess IV or V). All of those tribute models are SecFor.
One of the guys who wrote about playing the demo at PAX said that they only controlled 3 MERCS and the other two were left to the side until they did the B&C. The beta rule book doesn't have any specific rules about using less than 5 MERCS, but it does say that each player receives only 1 MERC miniature and the picture of the example board setup says "Set-up example for 5 players". So maybe there'll be some additional rules for using fewer than 5 MERCS?
