Hi, new to the forum. Software QA guy here. This is either a bug, or a very poor choice of how to represent information. (Cool game though! It took a LOT of playing to realize this mistake was here.)

This affects all weapons that have a minimum range.

For example, the range on the Big Bertha is given as "Range: 3 - 5".

From my experience, this "range of ranges" allows firing from only two positions, Range 3 and Range 4. My natural thought was that there would be three positions from which it could fire.

But no, it appears that the second number is "up X to but not including X"

On the guns WITHOUT minimum ranges, the convention is different: guns with Range 2, for example, can fire at a distance of 2.

I passed this along to Liran (the main developer on Supermechs), and he indicated that he would fix it when he could, and he also said thank you very much for your feedback!

Thanks for playing mate!

lifenstuff - Range is the key to this game. In every build you make, you should be thinking about what to do at range 2, range 3, range 4, etc. (at Range 1, you can just stomp and then do your Range 2 attack). Ideally, you will have a two-move sequence for each of these.

seth - Thanks!
