Brother Glacius Posted October 30, 2015 Report Share Posted October 30, 2015 So I just wanted to share a discussion I had on the KoW forums. Basically, it is around the issue where units block the shuffle movement of a charge in some way. AAAAAAAAAA ..BBBBBB C In this example, unit C wants to charge unit A. Unit B is also an enemy unit to C. Unit C would move as follows: AAAAAAAAAA CBBBBBB C is able to make contact, and then align itself to the target unit A. At this point, the next step is for C to shuffle down to the center of A. However, unit B is blocking. According to the powers that be (TPTB), you move C as far as it can go, ie until it touches unit B. At this point, the charge move is done. Unit B is then nudged so that it is no longer touching unit C. AAAAAAAAAA C.BBBBBB The overall theme I got from the discussion is that the charger only moves as far as they can, until they make contact with terrain or units that stop that movement. From that point, units are then nudged 1mm away. Now in the case where a unit cannot line up against another unit, ie face to face, the charge is not allowed. The only exception is if the opponent moved units in such a way as to prevent any possible charges due to alignment (face to face). This is the example in the FAQ where a unit has two possible charges, but trying to complete either one is prevented due to the angles. In this case only, can you move the target unit to align to the charger. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
