Getting off topic isn't a problem here. Just remember
Also, some thoughts I wanted to share:
When I first started playing I went really deep into the CC system and found it amazing how technical you could get with appropriate striking ranges, angry inches, knocking weapons out of each others hands, counters, parry, parry riposte, shoving, multiple weapons, ganging up, charges, weapon lengths etc. And I found that this made CC very interesting with a couple of minifigs.
But then when I started doing larger battles I tried to do the same when two large groups of minifigs attacked each other and I soon found myself overwhelmed in keeping track of actions, counters, counters to counters and damage and it always took FOR EVER. This was huge mistake I made and it wasn't until later that I realized that the 2005 squad rules where there to extremely simplify combat between large groups of minifigs.
Although I still think the 2005 squad rules are lacking a lot, they do have their uses.
TL;DR: Don't micro-manage when dealing with large groups of minifigs. Use the squad rules instead although I think they suck.
