The numbers say this is the wisest course:Too, I'd've thought that placing WP in front of the defenders instead of on top of them would have been more helpful, since the US could have used the cover to at least get into the front rank of buildings safely. True, the ? stacks wouldn't be revealed by the WP, but the real ones would be firing soon enough anyway
I thought we were applying plenty of +1s, (they were certainly making my fire tricky) - but thanks though - we amost definitely missed a few.Looks as if they were regularly forgetting the +1 LV hindrance which would apply on an initial shot when laying a firelane but not on any subsequent results from that FL once lain. Also the 1st WP shot by WP just resulted in a miss and loss of WP10 & as Bob Bendis pointed out would not have garnered an acquisition (as would any SMOKE round attempt). One can use an existing acquisition with an attempt to lay SMOKE but cannot gain/retain acquisition once that SMOKE shot has been made [EXC: If no SMOKE was available, thus No shot taken].
