Hey guys - my boyfriend bought me this game for Christmas and we all played it yesterday for the first time: it ROCKS ... really enjoying it.
I've been reading this forums closely this morning as - inevitably - a couple of questions emerged, the main one being around the scenario Victory Bridge: Bridge in Sight.
On the map below, can a unit with the artillery skill positioned in the green square (like a command squad) *see* the Allies Deployment squares covering the bridge, and therefore call in artillery strikes from an artillery equipped walker positioned behind the building?
One part of our group said "no. A unit has to be near the wall/exit to fire out and be fired upon."
Another part of our group said "what you can fire upon has nothing to do with LOS, and nothing here blocks LOS, therefore the Artillery skill can be used."
Something I read on this forum this morning has me leaning towards the latter, even though every fiber of my being says this is wrong. And if the Observer can see 'out' from here and use skills (like artillery), this would effectively mean that even though someone on the bridge could see them back, they could not fire upon them, so the observer would be impervious to anything but raiding the building.
