I don't know, one month isn't really necro, more on the very edge of a necropost.

Can RM be punished for giving too many fucks about necroposting yet?

Hey what about this as an idea for disruptor devices/radar jammers/really loud yelling: whatever device a creation is using to mess with enemy communications makes it more difficult for the attackers to combine their attacks against it. Each time the device is activated, the creation may be attacked by no more than 1d6 units in a single attack. They may still try to make separate attacks, but their hearing/radios are malfunctioning so that they can't coordinate big attacks. In this case, it would be wise to roll low as opposed to high, and getting bonus dice basically means that the jammer did next to nothing.

Radar jamming can be represented through scrambling devices, big-ass antennae, loud drumming/screaming/speakers, or whatever else you can think of.

So something like...

ECM Jammer-

X CP

Size 1

Armor 1d6

Half Mind- activates when ordered and deactivates when ordered by the pilot of the Mech it is mounted on like Bonn-o-Tron.

Elektronik Countermeasures- When activated, this jammer interferes with the communications of all enemy units within 10" of the jammer, preventing them from Combining Fire with more than 1d6 units (rolled once at the end of your turn). It also interferes with all Elektronik weapons and devices, with any and all appropriate effects as determined by common sense and WISG rolls (for example, turning guided missiles into ordinary missiles).

Seems like a good idea, maybe it'd go for less CP than a radio interceptor, since they just stop the communication.

I imagine a strict ECM jammer would just add 1d6 as a skill penalty against guided missiles and any other attacks requiring a lock-on.

Being a device, an interference module would require an action to activate. It's not a half-mind, it's just a button.



I think worrying about communications and whether or not units can "talk to each other" is pretty un-brikwars. Minifigs instinctively know when blood is being spilled, and where it's about to flow. Minifigs magically know whats going on in the battlefield at all times because the player knows what's happening at all times. This is why I chose for it to interrupt combined attacks - radio communications or shouting or whatever would be the standard way that minifigs would coordinate a combined attack. The idea came from the game The Creature that Ate Sheboygan, although in that game, being radioactive meant that NO combined attacks could be made at all against the target (unless they were in the same square but Brikwars don't work that way).

If there were some cool way to mess with combined attacks and radio communications, I'd go more along that route than the efficient transfer of orders. I'm not going to tell you how to play the game and what is and isn't fun, so feel free to work the game that way if you like it.
