ZoC restrictions - a possible alternative?  Empty ZoC restrictions - a possible alternative?

Post by grenadiergrandson on Wed Mar 01, 2017 1:51 pm

Hi all,

This follows on from an earlier post on the topic of ZoCs and their effect on the game. After a few games of BI2 now I thought of turning the situation on its head a bit, rather than the unit in the ZoC having to worry about what it does perhaps give the unit exerting it the chance to react in certain circumstances? It involves a test rather like defensive fire. This is my first thought on the wording:

" if an active unit is in a ZoC and wheels, goes sideways, obliques or moves forwards on a trajectory that won't contact the unit exerting the ZoC then that unit can try and react any time the enemy is in its ZoC by shooting or charging. Test on 4+ to pass

+1 General with unit

+1 T, CL or S shooting

+1 CP1 / 2 or Impetuous charging

'1' always fails

If the test is passed the unit reacts appropriately immediately. If shot at the active unit may then continue its move."

This means units in a ZoC can do things like turning to face but may provoke a nasty reaction doing so Smile

Cheers
