Planning to get this scenario to the table this weekend! Am I correct that VP awarded for optional rules should count AGAINST the affected side, for purposes of PRC intervention? For instance, if I elect to use the F-22 optional rule, that should bring the PRC 10 VP closer to getting their DRM, correct?
I didn't address it specifically, so, currently it would. That, however, may change the balance significantly as it is far more likely the PRC will intervene if all optionals are taken.
