To make things as simple as possible, we are Going to use the same missions on all the tables at the Etc
There Will be 6 predetermined missions
We Will use the updated missions from “more missions”
But are there some missions that we should not use ?
In my opinion there are two missions that we should avoid
Rearguard and Counterattack
Rearguard Can only be won by the defender if you go through all 9 rounds, if you run out Of time it Will be a draw, and only the attacker Can win in turn 1-8 (exept if the attacker is wiped out)
My experience with rearguard is that it usually takes Many hours to complete This mission, we Will have Many draws and some attacker victories in This mission but few defender victories..
I find it too unbalanced when we play at a limited time
This mission is by far the worst balanced mission in the game, it strongly favours the attacker
My experience as attacker and defender is that is is extremely much harder for the defender to losing the objectives
The problem is that the attacker Can sit on one objective quite easily from turn 1, forcing the defender to attack one objective while defending the other, and having only 60% Of his force on the table from the beginning
I dont Think either Of these missions should be amongst the 6 missions for Etc 2018
