Hi gales and guys,

Quick rulespack questions/clarifications (pairings and rules) :

1. When do “postures” are actually revealed (Attack/Manoeuvre/Defend), and how ?
Do Captains attribute a posture to each of their lists, at the beginning of the round (when they know which Team they will face), then reveal simultaneously them to their opponent, then Captains proceed to the pairings procedure ?
Or is it done differently ?

2. Free For All and Dust Up (a.k.a “meeting engagements”), who is the Attacker ?
Do we still need to roll a die for who is Attacker, or is it determined through Pairings ?
We understand that if a “Attack” list is matched up with a “Manoeuvre” or “Defend” list, the “Attack” list will be the Attacker (including in FFA and DU), and so on as per rulespack ETC. In case of tie, a dice is rolled as usual to determine Attacker/Defender.
Correct ?
Otherwise, there is no point in attributing the “postures” in FFA and DU…
This has some kind of influence considering the lists in ETC who gain special bonuses while being “Attacker” (who said the Japanese ?).
Are we right ?

3. Dust Up : determining the Reserves.
Contrary to V3, it is not determined in the scenario who goes first when determining Reserves/On Board troops.
Is it simultaneous (both players write it down, then reveal at the same time) ?
Or the Attacker states first, then the Defender states second ?
Again, this has some kind of influence in the game…

Cheers from France,

Fred

Hi Fred,

as far as I understood battleplans will be secretly attached to the lists before each match and will be revealed as soon as a list is put up for pairing, not before the pairing begins

Fred, Thomas,

1. Look at the rulespack, page 3. The link is at the start of this thread. The battle plans for all lists are revealed at the start of the draw in "step 0", before the first list is offered in step 1.

2. Rulespack page 4 - the battle plans determine the attacker and defender, not a dice roll.

3. Not specified anywhere. I would do it simultaneously with my opponent.

This is a fair question but I think as More Missions says 'Both Players.....' it is implied that they both do this at the same time. This seems to be a subtle change to v3.

Hi Fred,

I asked this question on the official Flames of War facebook page some time ago. Phil responded that both players show their reserves simultaneously. So write them down and show them at the same time.
