Side Note: CRUISER A survives another round (barely)! If we were using special gear, Round 2: Gear would be a great place for Letter fleet to cut & run with the hyperdrives before they are lost completely. XD
Round 3: Attack
A & B attack 1
A attack is 1A + 1O = 2 *ER: 1 takes minimal shield damage B attack is 3A + 3O = 6 *ER: Cruiser 1 will take 3 point of damage.
Remaining ships have each have a defense higher than the attack of the other. B & 2 unable to inflict damage on each other. Tie match.
Summery: Shooting the enemy meat shield is a bad idea. However, on the plus side it seems the multiple ships firing on a single target grid is more balanced than I thought. This confirms that the size bonuses will need to be adjusted.
