    Yeah, I guess that's fine. @Phyphor and @38thDoe may each change their allocations if they'd like, just to be fair.

    Nah, tactics all the way

    Well, feels like I should be able to change as well in that case.

    Spend 9 TG for 3 tactics counters.

  • MrBlarneyMrBlarney Registered User regular
    @Ketar: You only have 2 counters in your reinforcements (2 on the board + 12 already allocated), but you can still spend 6 Trade Goods for that much. (I'll assume that to be the case.)

    Give a little ground and the whole door blows open. Game's been long off the rails, so it's to be expected, I suppose.

    Alright, gotta do it.

    Activate Jord
    Move in every single unit from Coorneeq system and Saudor
    (Saudor carrier swings by Coorneeq on the way to pick up an additional 2 fighters)
    2/3/3


    By my math, that's 7 infantry, 14 fighters, 1 carrier, flagship. Capacity is 20, with 1 fighter II hanging around independently for 3 total fleet supply.

    This is to the death. Nekro can't retreat, and I can't afford to.

    Interesting. I didn't expect this this turn, your odds are likely better next turn because you could have built this turn and hoped my next first turn would be too overloaded to respond


    First things first, assault cannon to asplode the carrier. I think Antimass Deflectors is the only remaining tech to steal?
    Then, activate all infantry for the battle

    @MrBody to declare any action cards

    oh....the assault cannon auto destructs a non-fighter ship? and now all those fighters+infantry are gone?

    bleh, it's over. no cards

    I think the fighters and infantry stay alive until end of combat. Assault cannon is obnoxious though.

    @MrBlarney confirm this? I'm not seeing anything mentioned under Space Combat, Capacity, or Transport

  • MrBlarneyMrBlarney Registered User regular

    To confirm, since the units are now engaged in combat, Capacity will not be checked until the end of combat. So you still have all of your Fighters and Infantry in space. (See section 16.3 in the Living Rules Reference)

    The recipient of Assault Cannon fire also gets to choose what gets destroyed, but I don't think that's gonna change from the Carrier.

    Last chance for @MrBody and @Phyphor to send in action orders in thread or via PM before I start chucking dice.

    Also I'm going to need a clarification on exactly which set of errataed rules we are playing with

    In 1.1 destroying my flagship removes the infantry from the combat. In the latest version (1.3, https://images-cdn.fantasyflightgames.com/filer_public/e3/ae/e3ae7182-66db-4d58-ad20-83a6b87dec25/ti4_living_rules_reference_v1_3_web.pdf ) they do not get removed

    Phyphor on
  • MrBlarneyMrBlarney Registered User regular
    I thought I had v1.2 in the OP, with the clarified FAQ but I guess v1.1 was still linked. Although, v1.1 doesn't make a ruling either way, so we'll go with the clarification in the ruling from v1.2 onwards, where Infantry assigned to space combat via the Alastor remain so for the remainder of combat, regardless of Alastor status.

    No cards

    Also, the Nekro flagship has to declare at the start how many infantry are being used as fighters, and that number is locked in for the entire battle I believe.

    MrBody on
  • PhyphorPhyphor Building Planet Busters Tasting FruitRegistered User regular
    Yes, all of them. I am also happy with no cards (for round 1 at least)

    Sure we don't need to stop for sabotage checks? I honestly wouldn't be surprised if those were burned against me for minor cards at this point.

    Yep. Normally, I just let the two parties in a conflict work it out between themselves as far as action card Sabotages go. Seems like a pretty solid rule of thumb to keep things moving a little faster.

    Are we sure? It's not too late to turn this into a 4 or even 5 on 1 instead of just 3 on 1.

    And Duranium armor too. I give up.

    All hits to fighters. Declare retreat.

    Winnu to finish the job

  • MrBlarneyMrBlarney Registered User regular
    Sol destroys 4 Fighters.
    Nekro destroys 1 Fighter and 2 Infantry, and uses Duranium Armor to repair 1 Dreadnought.

    Combat Round 3

    Sol has Flagship "Genesis" and 3 Fighter IIs (7 Infantry loaded).
    Nekro has Flagship "Alastor", 3 Dreadnought IIs (two damaged), 1 Carrier (damaged), 3 Fighter IIs, and 5 Infantry (active for space combat via "Alastor").

    Sol declares a retreat at the start of the combat round.

    Geth roll 2d10t5+3d10t8 for Sol

  • MrBlarneyMrBlarney Registered User regular
    Sol scores 2 hits; @Phyphor to make assignments.
    Nekro scores 7 hits; this is enough to destroy all Sol ships, even with additional Action Card plays.

    Once Phyphor has assigned hits, combat will be resolved and action will be on 38thDoe.

    Why?
    I just needed this planet for the research VP.
    And I still will not be winning this game, so.

    Frankly I abandoned MR because the chance of losing my space dock to Infiltrate was remote.
    But then it happened so yay

    Can I get a board update when you get a chance?

  • MrBlarneyMrBlarney Registered User regular
    Most recent status update is at the bottom of the previous page. Only change has been Sol's action, where all units have been moved out of the Saudor and Coorneeq-Resculon systems. Sol still has 1 Fighter and 1 Infantry in Wellon, 2 Fighters at empty system "End of the Line", and Nekro has Flagship "Alastor", 3 Dreadnoughts (2 damaged), 1 Carrier (damaged), 2 Fighters, and 5 Infantry at Jord.

    Let me know if you need more.
