  • blocking fire

    whoo hoo my first post. Ok anyway backto subject. I was commander earlier to day and my heavies were taking a hive. I have the other 2 hives locked down and i didnt want to loose the. A few moments later i hear ocs firing at my pg in a hive. i had tons of res and i drop armories infront of the pg to prevent the ocs from killing the pg, which brings me to my question. Can u block fire with structures? You can use it in situations like that or when u have 5 gorges spitting at your team. I always block marine fire when im a gorge by droping an oc. Is this allowed? Or not?

    Re: blocking fire

    I guess when the rules say that blocking with structures isn't allowed it's a bit ambiguious. I'm fairly certain that it only applies to dropping structures in the doorways to keep aliens from fleeing, but I really don't know if that would be allowed or not.

      Re: blocking fire

      We may (that is, "we're allowed to") block OC or turret fire with an unbuilt structure. This decision is made easier than it otherwise might be now that projectile structures now target units over other structures.

      Just make sure you don't drop that structure (to block fire) as a fade or onos (or any other alien unit) is trying to run through the area (that's "trapping"). :)
