(Answered UPDATED) Mechs inside of level 1 building
« on: 10 February 2011, 05:32:39 »
What happens in the shooting phase when the target 'mech is inside of level 1 building and weapons fire hits upper torso? Does part of the damage hit to the building or does the full damage hit to the 'mech?

We couldn't find ruling for this in Total Warfare or Tactical Operations, so we just decided that the 'mech gets full damage.

Hmm, we answered this on the old boards. I'll have to try and dig up the answer.

Greetings,

So this is a place where game rules lead to a bit of abstraction that doesn't always make sense.

As per Pg. 167 of Total Warfare, the 'Mech is considered to be within a single level of the building even though it is two levels tall.

LOS to the 'Mech is still drawn as if it were two levels high (for any attacker not in an adjacent hex).

Damage to the Mech is applied as if the entire Mech was inside of the building.

It is a game abstraction for game playability.


Xotl: Note that we have switched to a new ruling:
