if you don't count my b**** about those damn paratroopers being able to land anywhere they want) Paratroopers often missed their target by miles or were killed on the way down.
Just so its said, the deployment of Paratroopers is NOT meant to portray them drifting down from the heavens mid fire-fight. This has been repeatedly stated by WotC staff.
They are supposed to represent the active behind enemy lines troops.
Given that, I'm OK with Paratroopers.
Well, actually, I'm OK that they deploy behind the lines, but I really think it should be required on turn 1. Its silly to have paratroopers come charging out of a group of trees that a turn before help enemy troops. They are not ninjas for cryin' out load!
