    Got this game over Christmas, myself. Forgot there was a thread for it.
    To weigh in on the lighting whip discussion from a few pages ago, sure, you can look at it as "you might chain your whip through buildings into your own mechs", but I like to look at it as "you can chain your whip through your mechs into more groups of buildings." That's not a joke, there were a few genuinely useful times where there'd be like, one or two vek attacking one group of buildings, and one or two attacking another group, and I could deal more damage by not attacking with one of my other mechs and instead using their turn to move them into a position to allow the chain. Or even better, they just started the turn there and I can get the extra chain and then still attack with that mech.

    Yeah, one of the key concepts you have to learn to get good at this game is that anything less than lethal damage means nothing once the mission is over.

    Yeah, I'm finding I go through a bunch of different priorities. First, can I make this Vek hit another Vek? If not, can I make it hit nothing? Failing that, a mech, then a building, then an objective.

    I think my priorities go something like stopping Vek from killing mechs> stopping Vek from destroying objectives> stopping Vek from damaging the grid> killing Vek> an ambiguous soup of avoiding mech damage, damaging but not killing Vek, and blocking emergences.

    At the same time, this is why I think of Blitzkrieg as a very tough mech team: they lack lethal stopping power until you upgrade the lightning mech to 3 damage. And when you do, suddenly, your partner mechs are one or two shots from death.
