(Answered) Probes and ECM
« on: 24 September 2022, 20:42:45 »
Hello,

I have a question regarding the gameplay mechanics of the PRB, BH abilities.

If ECM negates the abilities of a PRB and AECM negates the abilities of the BH. How in a gameplay positioning sense does this work?

Does the unit with ECM need to cover the unit with PRB inside its bubble. OR, could the unit with ECM be outside the bubble range, but essentially stand next to what its trying to shield from the probe.

I hope that explains my question ok, thank you in advance!

ECM blocks effects in, or that draw a line of sight through, the ECM bubble.
So the ECM unit could stand near another friendly unit, and shield that unit from any probes, since the friendly unit is in the bubble, all lines of sight to it would have to go through.
