ERUPTING BATTLEFRONT AND NUKE

PostThu Jul 06, 2017 6:47 pm

On scenario section states that the player applies -1 PV for each time he destroys a sector with a nuclear weapon unless the scenario states otherwise.

In the scenario of ERUPTING BATTLEFRONT you need, partially, to destroy sectors to obtain PV. If a sector is destroyed with nuke how do you count it? 1 PV for destroying it and -1 PV for using nuclear weapon (ie 0 PV) or does not apply -1 PV since the scenario states that sectors must be destroyed?

What do you think?

I'd interpret it as 0 VP as you speculated.
From a rules perspective, the scenario doesn't say anything about nukes specifically, so the normal nuke rules apply in addition to the scenario rule.
From a fluff perspective, nuking a sector is still bad.

Yeah, it doesn't say to nuke the sector, just that you need to destroy it. Regular Orbital Bombardment should accomplish this...
