View Full Version : PG11 Shooting Aid deadlier than DBMM ?

Tactical Factors: Add to or subtract from scores for each of the following tactical factors that applies:

-1 ... for each 2nd or 3rd enemy element aiding opposing elementís shooting.


In DBMM, Aiders shooting directly give -1 to the enemy and those shooting from a second rank give +1 to the shooter.

IIRC discussions about this during DBMM development, the -1 is much deadlier than the +1.

SO this seems to be a significant difference in combat results between the two games. But maybe there are so many fewer elements than it works out?

Also note that the phrasing is difficult to comprehend quickly: "aiding opposing elementís shooting." There is an implied "who are shooting...at you." But it takes some time to read the whole run-on sentence, discount the first part of it which relates to overlaps, and then think about it.

With all due respect to DBMM players, what has DBMM got to do with DBA?

What effort would it take DBMM players to learn DBA? and vice versa.

"so DBA can serve as a simpler introduction to DBMM..."
