Other – Prefer games where chaining CC (max distance to another member) or radius (max distance to CC hub) are options as well has having multiple CC nets (and hubs) for different figures are options.

Individual forces are given different CC set ups to represent different capabilities or create different tactical situations.

POLL DESCRIPTION

Personal logo Weasel Supporting Member of TMP says:

In games with individually based figures that are required to remain within a certain distance from each other, what do you prefer?

For the pedantic, the poll is regarding coherency distances. Hence "No coherency distance", "Everyone in base contact", "I don't play games with miniatures" and "I only play first edition DBA" are not included as poll options.

Poll set up by Personal logo Editor in Chief Bill The Editor of TMP Fezian, based on this pre-poll discussion.

Maintain line of sight to someone in unit
As long as a trooper could see a fellow soldier from his unit (whom he knows) then he will function ok. Once he is out of the LOS then his actions may become timid to the point of being frozen or pinned.
no opinion
I don't have an opinion.
Stay within hearing distance of the squad leader
If Hollywood is any indication SF squadies and HQ only go hysterical when they loose audio communication between themselves. I contend there must be countless video clips from such movies to support my theory. If it's in the movies it must be true.
other (explain)
Please explain.
Maintain a maximum distance between figures
Such as 40K
Stay within leader's command range
All units within a command distance of each other based on the unit leader's command rating, as in Star Wars Miniatures Battles. Yes, you can and may have to risk a long, strung out line of troops with some men being momentarily isolated by the loss of a link in the chain, but that's realistic.
Maintain a maximum distance from the squad leader
Such as Warzone
