Our group has had this discussion many times. It seems unrealistic that a country would develop something that is not useful. In one of our games Russia bought a non-disposable tech dice and actually rolled a 6 then rolled on the chart and got “War Bonds” which was cool for them but if you look at the list there are very few that Russia can benefit from. Mostly depends if they are on the offensive. If they are on the defensive then only “War Bonds” and “Increased Factory Production” seem to be worthwhile. “Radar” would also be good but its on a separate chart with tech that would not benefit them. Most would say that Russia should not even consider rolling on tech and I tend to agree unless they are on the offensive and have a massive economy.
Question for Krieg: How To Roll Heavy Bombers Tech in Global?
Okay Krieghund, Here’s the question.
When rolling for heavy bombers the tech says roll 2 dice for each bomber and select the best result. So when rolling for multiple heavy bombers what does that mean?
A. Roll all bombers at once. As if 5 bombers roll 10D6. 7 hits are rolled but you only count a max of 5 because there are only 5 bombers?
B. All bombers must roll one at a time because you won’t be able to tell which bomber made what hits when you roll them together?
Answer A makes sense to me. However some have pointed out that rolling heavy bombers simultaneously, creates an unfair advantage by increasing the odds of all or most of the bombers making a hit due to the higher number of dice being rolled, where as if rolled singularly the odds of the bomber making a hit is much lower.
