Firefight and Ski troops Fri, 01 April 2011 04:38
At Suomussalmi this evening, my Axis opponent played Firefight, and one of his ski troops was permitted to roll 1d at my tank 3 hexes away. Ski troops battle 3-2-0, so this should have been illegal.

I filed a bug report.

Call this the Biathlon bug. Smile

It worked out fine. His bullets bounced right off the tank, as a sniper's should. Smile

He probably just threw his skipole at your tank. Very Happy

When firefighting units roll an extra die. So I don't see a bug described above - when I went to school (in a different century) 0+1=1

Right, but the issue is that Ski Troops don't have that extra hex of range...with other units, they aren't allowed to shoot further simply because they have a certain card. Razz

Jesse is correct as usual.
What tripped me up was the original description with ski troops said to fire at 3-2-0 rather than simply 3-2

No worries. I've seen this bug happening in some of my battles as well, but I think I forgot to send in the Bug Report! Embarassed Oops.

I guess I'll just have to keep playing with the Ski Troops until it happens again and send in the report...it's a rough life having to play all of this Memoir '44 Online. Laughing

You're just (understandably) grateful to have ski troops in Dubai. Smile

It's true!! Laughing The only place I've seen snow in over a year has been in Ski Dubai when my wife and I went snowboarding! But it's not quite the same when you walk out of the freezing building into one of the largest dune deserts in the world!! Confused

I'll make sure that my excitement about playing in the snow (in Memoir '44 Online) doesn't cloud my Bug Report 'radar' in the future... Razz
