      Upcoming Changes to the Fantasy Flight Games Forums   01/20/2017

      Hello Fantasy Flight Games forum community!   This week, we will be making some important changes to your Fantasy Flight Games community account and the way that you log into the Fantasy Flight Games community forums and web store.   We have been working hard to integrate with the rest of the Asmodee group, and we are happy to announce a unified way to access all the websites and apps made by Fantasy Flight Games, Days of Wonder, and Asmodee!   For most users, nothing will change: you will still log into the Fantasy Flight Games forums using your current login name and password. Only the login user interface will be new.   For a few users, your credentials might be slightly changed. For example, this could happen to users who have both a Fantasy Flight Games and Days of Wonder account, or in the case of conflicting login names across platforms. When these situations occur, special e-mails will be sent to those users with an easy explanation about those changes and what steps to take next. For any of you receiving those e-mails, please make sure to follow the instructions carefully.   Remember, official communications from Fantasy Flight Games or Asmodee.Net will never ask for your password.   What are the benefits for you as a player? Using a unified account to access all of our web services and apps makes your life simpler. Over time, you will see new features emerging, such as keeping all of your friends under a single account, finding friends easily in apps with online play, or developing your personal profile by adding to your board games collection. These are just some of the features that you will see during the next year, once this important technical step is complete.   Important note: The migration of the forums to our new system will take place on Tuesday, January 24th. The forums will be offline for about two hours during that time. Once the migration is complete, older forum posts may look strange for up to 24 hours as we rebuild them in our new system.   We can’t wait to connect our board game communities and build bridges between universes, game systems, players, events, groups, game clubs, and more! This is only the first step in bringing people and games closer together. For more information, read our FAQ at https://asmodee.helpshift.com/a/asmodee-net/.   Best regards,   The Fantasy Flight Games Team

Fighting inside the palace

6 posts in this topic

The other day we played the game for the firts time and we found something strange. Traitor got inside the palace, and Imperial army tried to push them out avergonzado_triste But when they tried to attack them inside the palace they were attacking form a fortified area to a fortified area. This point is not covered in the rulebook asustado Does the Traitor army get any benifit (damage reduction) of being attacked? Imperial army lost several units.

The rulebook only says about coexistance fights in a fortified area, but nothing about this.

Sorry to write so many topics with the same name, but it is not my fault. When I tried to publish I got an error (the forum page is too slow) and I thoug it was not published. So I tried several times until it was accepted. After this I saw all of them were published atontado. please, if possible, remove all of them except this one. Thanks.

I don't know, for me the first sentence under "Effects of Fortification" seems to cover the issue:

"Defending units in fortified areas have an advantage in battle." (p. 33)

If the Traitors are the ones being attacked, they are the defending units, so they get the reduction benefits.

 

Also, for future reference against multiple (or MULTIPLE reir ) threads, if you get an error, go to the forum where you meant to post the thread and see if it did get posted despite the error. Many times the thread does actually go up even when you get an error.

Yes we used this rule, but it has no sense. I mean, if you attack a breached section of a fortified area you get only a benefit of one point reduction of the damage. Inside there are no strong walls. So, I think it should be treated at least as a breached area with only one point reduction, not two. two point reduction. inside the palace both sides get stuck, as nobody wants to fight with those benefits.

I also think that there should be more refresh phases for the traitor, as they fight against the clock. It is frustrating for him.

If there is a Breach, it does of course reduce the defense to one point instead of two, if the attack is coming across the breach token. Plus if you have Magnus the Red with his Thousand Sons, that pre-battle bombardment (esp if combined with Mortarion) can wipe out the defenders right off the bat.

Also, there is little reason to fight in the Palace, Inner Palace in particular. Yes, killing the Emperor wins you the game, but IMO it's too much work to dig him out of the Inner Palace. In this version of the game, you don't even need the IP to win (in the 1993 HH game you needed all 4 spaceports PLUS Inner Palace to win through control), spaceports are what you need to win. Only go after the Emperor if an opportunity presents itself.

We will try next time. So, the idea, for the Traitor, is to go for the space ports, and if the Emperor shows up may be they have a chance to finish him. Mmmm … I think we have to play more times and try this tactics. Thanks for the help.
