Haven't been on the forums for a while, but that sounds like good news.
The tactic has it's place and time, although I think it might die a quick death with v 1.04, which seems like it will drastically lower damaged elements from blizzard.
Would you say your human opponent made an effort to just infiltrate between your holes in the first line and not attack, trying to trap them for next turn, or did he just do the shovel tactics ? (but failed short of deliberate attacks on the second line)
Actually, he tried both. There were turns where I had to extract a unit only one hex (and thus not have the open hex between my lines and his), and he also focused attacks when he could on the front unit. I think that now, and you are right about 1.04 it may well be a whole new affair, given enough space to pull back steadily, it helps a lot.
