Besides, in EA you don't get to do nothing - still get a hold action! :-)
But hey, in the immortal words of L4 : dwefynm! ;-) Quote
Is that Welsh ?
Yes, something my long gone Gramma said, "Do What Works For YOU !" I added "Not Me !"
Regardless, the point is clear, me thinks !
As far as Activation - as I said we add that in SM1 based on a number of other we played in the past. And we agree, Order Counters must be used. It keeps track of who does what, while going back and forth like a chess game.
And something that has become abundantly clear to me recently. The New Gen of Epic Gamers, many who the first version they played was SM2/TL. Which again was "not my cup of grog" ... Which I equate more to Checkers not Chess !
But I've noted at my own risk. GW Epic is not hard Sci-fi as I prefer. But much more like Sci-Fantasy. Which SM2/TL was the poster child.
And I don't like Sci-Fant at all. So we played Epic as hard core Sci-fi. And try to ignore much of the 40K "Fluffy" stuff which inevitably works it's way into the rules.
So again ... my mantra :
Use Activation with Order Counters
This hobby is about grown me playing with toys ...period. [In my distant youth I played 1 to 1 scale wargames in the ARMY Infantry, in places like Panama, the DMZ in the ROK, West Germany, etc., '79-'90...]
My life and gaming experiences which formed my opinions on gaming, etc. may be much different to many here.
So, and more, importantly DWWFU ...NM !
