Actually, I am the first and only person ever in the history of the game to CHOOSE not to kill the Chinese fighter. Don’t try to deny me. I have proof.
And for the record, what exactly do the designers have against the Flying Tigers that they would put them in such a threatened position in every game they make?
Welcome to the “I-don’t-destroy-the-chinese-figther-in-game-turn-1-club”.
This figther is no risk cause it can’t leave china.
Even if those extra Fighters survive the battle and then have to crash into the sea?
The thing is, you don’t know if those fighters will have to crash into the sea. They may end up on non-combat move without a valid landing spot but when you perform your combat moves there’s always a statistical change that the carrier will kill the 100 battleships (even though it should be about the same as you de-materializing while reading this message and materializing on the next room) thus the combat move satisfies the rule of a valid landing spot (regardless of how improbable it might be).
Combat moving 2 extra fighters to a battle goes against that same rule because there’s simply no possibility for those fighters to land during non-combat as they are moved (unless a carrier magically pops up out of nowhere into the middle of the battle board - odds for that happening should be the same as you teleporting yourself to another room) .
