I was just in a battle with the French and with their nation specific SA "Exellent Spotting" you have to fire the French in the most advantageous way possible to get the most out of the ships. Is there a reason I wouldn't be able to fire the secondaries of the Strasburg then fire the mains of the Richelieu at the target. Them fire the secondaries of the Richelieu to trigger the mains of the Strasburg? The big debate we had in our battle was that each ship had to finish its fire before moving on to the next. In my mind, this makes the "Excellent Spotting" SA, and the French since this is their big SA,less valuable. How do you guys play it?
Shoot Le Terrible at Littorio and miss by a country mile. Shoot Richelieu at Littorio with ES and vital it. Shoot Richelieu tertiaries at Caio Duilio and don’t even count the successes. Shoot Dunkerque at Caio Duilio and vital it.
There’s nothing in the rulebook that says you have to completely fire a ship before going on to the next one.
As a newbie to the WAS game after years of the land game, I was wondering why the rulebook doesn't say whether or not you have to follow any particular order in firing a ship's guns, other than firing the anti-air guns in a separate phase. I guess I'm not the only one confused by that lack of a rule.
