In honour of the brave crew of Hr.Ms. Java 27-02-1942 † Battle of the Java Sea
The player who "loses" a round of melee combat does not inflict any damage? So there is nothing to nullify? Only the winning roles cause damage - as in only one strike gers through.
I still get a lot off exchange results. At level 3 something like that is lethal. One minute I'm full health and morale. One exchange result with a rhino in round one and I'm in trouble. Second round and I'm knocked out. After 11 turns carefully building and leveling up something like that feels like an anticlimax.
