Damage to AO

Post by RUPD3658 »

I just reread the manual and saw that any damage to the AO usit will result in a "Wounded staff" screen being displayed and result in no points being scored as well as 5% of the total being lost.

I recently took 2 causuties to my AO unit and did not have this happen.

The manual I have is V5.0 and I am playing V8.2.

Has anything changed?

If not I will wrap my AO in bubble wrap and keep it as far away from the action as possible.

Hmm... The only time I've seen "wounded staff" screens have been in Mega Campaigns...

Hello...

That should read "destruction" of the A0 unit.

Bye...

Thanks. Now I don't worry about 1 causaulty from a stray arty round spoiling a whole scenario.

While I have the attention of a staff member.....what are the victory levels? I have yet to see them in print. I recently scored a draw on and advance mission where I out scored the AI 13k to 5k.

Several people said it had to do with mission type but I can find no documentaion in the manual.

Thanks.

IIRC, against the AI, they are approximately:

7-1 or greater... Decisive Victory
greater than 3-1 but less than 7-1..... Marginal Victory
less than 3-1 .... draw

Against a human, the ratios are slightly more forgiving

Thanks!

I was stumped since I was used to the old SP ratios of 8:1 DV, 2:1 MV and less than 2:1 - 1:2 Draw.
