The only concept in brikwars I have never really understood.

ok, so response fire.

If you are playing in a battle in which you are taking turns as to whos turn it is to move and fire. And you can consider a turn to have happened once every player has had a chance to move and fire. Then it makes sense that if a unit of one of the first players did not take an action then it would be able to have a response action instead. BUT, if an opportunity arises in which a player has not had his turn and would like to make a response action, is he allowed to make a response action?  Because technically, he has not made the decision yet as to whether he will do something or not.

This problem does not really seem to come up in real battles, but with forum battle s it seems to be a pretty big issue.

I don't know about you guy's, but i generally do Combined movement turns and separate attacks in every thing But FB's. ANd during attack my friends and I allow the defender to make an response attack if it would be possible IRL, like if the attacker stood right in front of them and then shot.  it makes things easier, and almost nullifies your problem.

If a unit fails to get in range/has no other peculiar orders in a turn, I gave it a response action as it still has an unused action.

Don't we call this a round?

But to answer your question I believe they do get response fire because they simply didn't take an action when they entered the game so they still have an action left from an imaginary turn that exists before the game started.

In other words they just walked onto the battlefield and nothing required their focus and attention so they still have a response action.

An action can be saved by any unit, as long as it hasn't taken it yet. However, at the start of your next turn, that saved action "goes bad," and can't be used.

But I believe he is talking about a unit or squad that hasn't even had a previous turn yet.

Like when a new faction enters the game.

As long as the unit didn't use its Action on its previous turn, then it still has an Action to spend.  At the beginning of the game, none of the units on the field had a previous turn, so of course they haven't spent their Actions yet.
