Oppressive Heat Clarification
« on: June 18, 2014, 02:57:25 PM »
For starters I'm at work and don't have the actual card here for reference.  According to the card engaged units get a counter that represents a (-1) -0/-0 penalty for every turn they are engaged.  Once units with the units become unengaged they have a counter removed at the movement and command phase for each following turn that they remain unengaged.  So am I understanding this correctly that the counters are cumulative and a unit that has been engaged for 3 turns would have 3 counters on it representing a (-3) -0/-0 penalty?

Or am I just nuts?

No, the penalty never gets worse than (-1) -0/-0.  The only effect of having 3 counters is that if your unit becomes unengaged it'll be a full 3 turns unengaged before it doesn't have that penalty anymore.  (If it has 12 counters it'll be 12 turns unengaged before no penalty, etc.)
However beautiful the strategy, you should occasionally look at the results. - Winston Churchill
