Hi,

Card #37 is for opponents "remove a single legion".
Another cards says opponents "remove all legions from an objective"
there is also a + legion and a +legion x2 card.

Removing a single legion and letting the opponent chose which one seems pretty lame (another post said just to remove it from an objective) so I am thinking this means the opponents must lose a legion (either from an objective or stock) permanently.

Has anyone confirmed what the tile means? Reference?

thanks,
Presto

If you look at the icon on the card that makes your opponent remove a legion, you see that it crosses a legion on a circle.

It's the same iconography as on the objectives that allow you to place legions onto certain objective icons. In the same way as these bonuses are designed to speed up completion of objectives, the aggressive action that removes legions from objectives is designed to slow down your opponents' completion of objectives, the difference is that speeding up is 1 objective, slowing down is one objective per player. So not that lame.

EDIT: Also, regarding iconography, if you compare the icon of the legion that is removed, with the one that gives a player more legions to play with, the one that gives is again missing that circle on which the legion stand on cards.
