MOAB in testing

The mechanic will be dropping the MOAB will cost plenty PP (4000+) , will reduce the HM score of all villages by -1 or -2 , and as a benefit will suppress any enemy cave in the blast zone for a number of turns (8+), thereby forcing the enemy to start missions further away from the targets as well as preventing any additional enemy spawning at that cave, i.e. reducing overall number of enemy spawns for the duration.

Thoughts ?

I think it's great! We'll have to see what it does in balance terms soon, but it sounds like your solution is in no way a game breaker!

And as much as I hate to reduce it to that - honestly, is the kind of feature that WILL get press and probably nab a few extra sales. For that alone I think it's worth putting in :mrgreen:

Currently Militia (and sometimes Taliban) missions are initiated from caves , you don't actually see them (until the end screen), but you can triangulate using the intel SO
