hey there everybody,
i have a question concerning how to roll dice. there are two different possibilities which are quite different and would change the game mechanics drastically.
my friends and I use to roll up to seven dice (depending on the number of units which participate in combat) and every dice (whether hit or not) can be assigned to every unit (for example: if there are one inf and one tank on the attackerĀ“s side and you roll a 1 and 2 the attacker has 2 hits).
the other method is to roll dice for every unit type seperately like you have to do in axis & allies: d-day. with this method the same dice result will cause possibly only one hit if you roll a 2 with the inf and a 1 with the tank.
I hope there are some guys with enough game experience to give me some certainty.
thanks for your help

No, you don't roll all your dice for all your units at once and then choose which result for which unit. According to the rules:

Roll one die for each attacking unit with an attack value. Roll for units with the same
attack value at the same time. For example, roll all units with an attack value of '3' at
the same time.
An attacking unit scores a hit if you roll its attack value or less

Relevant bit is on page p18 (general combat)

Or do what I did and go get a bunch of different colored dice to represent each "hit value." So you can roll them all at one if you want and all the greens hit on 3 or less, all blues on 4 or less, or whatever you want to assign.
