I'm trying to learn this game. It looks so good but is so confusing!
In the setbacks section, it says that the enemy cannot suffer setbacks from any cause while at technology 3. So does that mean as long as the enemy progress chit is on one of the first 3 rows they cannot suffer a setback and that part of the end of turn resolution doesnt apply at that time?
yeah, a setback is when one of the things happen that cause their tech level to get knocked back a notch - like if you draw a setback card, or take over a tech center, or through espionage. But if any of those events happen when their tech level is only at 3, it just stays where it is rather than going down a rung.
