Mike explains the Frenzy rules for Infinity.
Merci, Mike ! Ces vidéos m’apprennent le jeu bien mieux que les règles traduites avec les pieds… And thank you Andy !
I don’t know if it’s the translations or something else but I think the name Frenzy is confusing some. Some seem to think it has something to do with close combat. Though it can be used to get into close combat because now they have an extra order just for that model.
Thanks guys. It took me awhile to get the hang of Frenzy only activating — after causing a wound on an enemy figure.
Frenzy and my highlander army are great, about halfway through the game I am spending about twice the amount of orders I was at the beginning. Rocking game!
It seems that some people are confusing Frenzy with Berserk. And as many of the models with Frenzy also seem to come with Berserk this is somewhat understandable. When a figure uses the Berserk skill, the Close Combat roll (normally a Face to Face roll) becomes a Normal Roll for each combatant. Each figure makes its Skill Roll, and a successful attack roll forces the enemy to make an ARM Roll as usual. So It’s possible that both players will receive Damage simultaneously. In addition, the Berserk model receives a BONUS OF +9 TO HIS CC ATTRIBUTE, but never gains the +3 ARM Defense Bonus for making a successful Close Combat Roll.
If the opponent decides to Dodge, a success on his PH Roll will not avoid the blow, but he will be able to move out of Close Combat.
Berserk is an automatic Special Skill that does not require Orders to be spent for activation but its use must be declared at the same time as the declaration of a Close Combat Skill use. The use of this Skill is optional and it can only be applied in Close Combat.
So Frenzy helps you get into combat faster and Berserk helps insure that you win. +9 CC sweet!
That explains what I had a hard time with. Clears up the confusion of the 2 skills as they do seem the same as they are close in meaning.
The nice thing about those Highlander Greys is that they are Regular. I think they could become Irregular after becoming Frenzy as well.
