Few questions on interception/evasion
I have a few questions on air combat, and especially interception/evasion !
Yesterday I took 3 atomic bombs on my cities whereas each time I had multiple anti-air units (AA guns & fighters with "extra sortie"...). My opponent never made any air sweep mission. I thought that Atomic Bombs could be intercepted so I was very surprised (not to say disappointed), and my opponent told me that I was wrong, that of course they could not be intercepted. I could not believe this and so I looked into the civilopedia and saw that Atomic Bombs had "Evasion 50". So my questions are :
- Can I get confirmation that "Evasion 50" means that the unit has 50% of avoiding interception ?
- Do I deduce correctly, from what happened in my game, that an air unit with "Evasion 50" succeeding its evasion chance cannot be intercepted anymore this turn ? (it's not 50% chance to avoid each unit with interception)
- Am I so unlucky that my opponent was successful in the 12,5% chance to throw me 3 A-bombs without being intercepted ?
- I have also read on the civilopedia that the Nuclear Missile also has "Evasion 50". Does that mean that the Nuclear Missile can also be intercepted ? Even with low tech units such as AA guns or fighters ?
Thank you for your answers !
Sorry but Atomic bombs and nuclear missiles can not be intercepted.
I posted similar question once http://forums.2kgames.com/showthread...enemy-aircraft
Nope its just broken.
Its pretty much impossible to kill the bomber before it drops it.
Also did your units actually shoot the bomber?
At the moment there is no defence in the game against nuclear attack.
Oh crap, so in fact, Atomic Bombs & Nuclear Missiles do not have "Evasion 50" as written on them, but "Evasion 100" ?
It could just be a promotion bug...
You're assuming that the 50 refers to a %. Why?
Because that's the way promotions have to be read : Evasion 50, Evasion 100, Interception 40, Interception 100, etc...
