### Theory

**Sat Apr 18, 2009 5:15 am**Imagine a urban battlefield. 2 armies battling. Army A is attacking the hugesome building and must destroy it to win. Army B must defend it at all costs.

Army A is almost completely destroyed, they have got only 1 trooper left, a sniper, who's standing on the roof of a building right next to the objective building (let's say, OB). What will he do?

With its player turning crazy, he decides to just shoot the building. He rolls a 2 for skill, when he needed 5. But since the OB is huge and awesome, he gets that bonus to skill so its fire hits the target.

OB is a Lvl 7 structure, so it gets 7d10 armor. On the rolls, it gets a relatively low total number of 35.

Then the sniper fires. The sniper rifle has 2d6 damage. When Player A rolls the dice, he gets an incredibly lucky roll, ending up with 45 on total!

Using this alternative set of rules, if the number of st, lvls lost is found by doing [damage - armor], then the OB would lose 10 structure points, more than the 7 it already has [45 - 35 = 10].

This would mean that the building would collapse due to one sniper shot.

Is this enough to reject that underlined rule, even if being totally fun wehn you get extremely lucky?

PS: I think jifel suggested it.

PPS: Army A would have won.
