Objective placement
« on: October 03, 2019, 08:53:15 AM »
Not a rule query, but an open question.
What is the thinking behind allowing the defender to place the objectives in SB?

It seems to me that it would be the attacker who would decide what what objectives were important to him/her. The defenders job is to hold whatever line / positions he/she is in. Simplest example would be in the case of trenches, where the point of attack would be decided by the attacker, not the defender.

Would it not be more logical for the attacker to make a note of the objectives he has set him/her self - the defender to deploy NOT KNOWING THESE - then the attacker deploy.

I am not sure what this would do to the balance of the game, but if it is a better reflection of a battle situation then other things can be flexed to correct the balance.

Interested to hear peoples views.

Sounds interesting. Perhaps if the defender deployed, say, 3 objectives and then the attacker secretly noted them on his battle sheet as primary, secondary and tertiary. Then the points could be awarded depending on who ended the battle with what. Could work for PBI too.
