I think they will be offensive on their next turn. Thus, I believe that building the boosted soldier on left would be wasteful…wits better spent on a sniper for the mobi. Wondering if we should bank 5 wits. Or maybe just build a sniper on left, end turn, that would give us the option to boost if prudent.
We are pretty sure that they will only have 7 wits next turn (since we denied their right wit space). So, they don’t have enough to kill our right 4 hp soldier, since they don’t have a sniper currently. But they could do:
Mobi to K5
Build sniper right, boost sniper
Warp boosted sniper to J6 (or, they could block a 1 hp sniper by moving the J5 soldier to I6, this may be a better move)
K4 soldier to K6
I think that’s Gavin’s concern. However, would a good response be:
Mobi to I10
Sniper to I9
Kill Boosted sniper
Spawn a soldier on right
They would only have 6 wits on this turn, given the above assumptions, so I’m not sure what damage they could do. Therefore I don’t know if they would go the medic killing route…seems we win that trade. Unless there is a better way for them to do it that I’m not seeing.
That was me thinking through their options…if they don’t kill the medic, there’s a great many things they could do. Probably, they will prepare to mount an offensive, but not actually kill any units. They need to retake their wit space, and they need a sniper.
I may be in favor of the B5 soldier idea now.
