RULES - page 12 wrote:
Each blue icon on a card flipped by enemy Wings, representing a missile, may be struck as a casualty by the losing side of the battle, and if no other assets remain, must be. Otherwise, at the end of the battle, each missile destroys one remaining enemy Cruiser, Wing, or Transport, of the launching player's choice. This paragraph of the rulebook drives me crazy. I've read it hundred times. I've analysed the whole rulebook in relation to this fragment. And I still do not get it... Please just tell me what does it mean, or... see the list of questions that it brings to me below.
Each blue icon on a card flipped by enemy Wings, representing a missile, maymay? I cannot imagine anything optional in the battle, please tell me what is optional here?
be struck as a casualty by the losing side...and how can I know who is the losing side?! according to new rules the winner is not the player with greater strenght, but a player who destroys more units of an opponent, and counting the casualties struck by missiles may turn winner into a loser, so... to finish that elaborate analysis with a question - Who is the losing side at the momment taken into consideration in this sentence?
of the battle, and if no other assets...omg, the word asset has neither appeared before nor later in the entire rulebook. What is it? All ships C+T+W?
remain, must be. OtherwiseOtherwise to what situation? The word otherwise is used to explain different situation than presented before the word. But I see that before this word there is a sentence that presented two different situations, so... to which 'otherwise' is used?
at the end of the battle, each missile destroys one remaining enemy Cruiser, Wing, or Transport, of the launching player's choice.this is clear
Please note that even if I get all the answers to my 1-4 questions I feel that I will not get the general concept so I need some deep explanaion of what is going on here.
