Battletech Lunchtime Challenge 2- Turn 1b/2a
Turn 1 of the second Battletech Lunchtime Challenge ended with a miss from the Right Arm Medium Laser of the Atlas with the Jenner as its target.
Turn 2 opened with the Atlas continuing its run up the map, but with a more aggressive defense policy being enacted, forcing the Attackers into the trees to take cover. Initial firing from the Jenner scored a very lucky hit to a less than useful location, and a disappointing double miss from the Hermes.
Now we must wait and wonder what the Atlas will choose to unleash, keeping in mind the high targeting modifiers and the low levels of ammunition. I am sure I am not the only one wondering how long the Attackers can survive if they are forced into the Atlas’ forward arc each turn.
Another question is this: Turn 2′s movement by the Atlas placed both the Jenner and the Hermes in perfect position for physical attacks. The Jenner was primed for a DFA, while the Hermes had the choice to make an 8 hex charge. If it had been you running them under these conditions, would you have chosen to take those options? If not, what would you have done instead?
Turn 1B and Turn 2a
The next clip will include the return fire from the Atlas, a good chance for mech destruction, as well as the initiative roll for the survivors, if any.
