I've found a few threads about this mechanic after a question in the spanish forum https://forum.corvusbelli.com/threads/detonate-kuang-shi-vs-a-marker.25883/ https://forum.corvusbelli.com/threads/jumping-gakis-and-impersonation-markers.2033/ https://forum.corvusbelli.com/threads/explode-l1-question.28435/ https://forum.corvusbelli.com/threads/explode-vs-dodge.33537/ This interaction is kind of special because Explode L1 (or the Kuang Shi control device) doesn't have the attack label, so this ability jumps over the safety rules like not being able to attack allies or marker states. This create a few unique interactions that would be nice if they get ruled officially, but if not let's at least try to get a few answers we can agree. How Explode L1 works seems kind of clear, the model would explode if he goes unconscious, that will happens in the phase 8 of the resolution phase and each enemy and ally catched by the template will have to roll for ARM We have this example but it feels wrong so not sure if it has to be considered (attack, declare aro in step 8...) But when we include the Detonate Kuang Shi the things get messy: Detonate Kuang Shi isn't an attack so in theory dodge shouldn't be an option but then we have this example: The enemies dodging the template mean that it is considered an attack. So, it's an attack or not? So which are the limits of this ability? I'll try to put all the relevant questions: Explode L1 Can explode L1 affect allies? If you declared dodge during that order, does it let you dodge the template in the step 8 of the order? What happens if explode L1 trigger catching only markers or impersonators? Can you suicide (jumping) to explode next to marker/impersonators? Detonate Kuang Shi Is detonate kuang shi an attack or not? If it's not an attack, can the enemy troopers dodge it? If it's an attack, then does it cancel if an allied trooper is inside the template? What happens if detonate kuang shi is canceled by an HVT or if the above point is true? does the kuang shi still die? Does this interact with CAMO/IMP as an explode L1 triggered in the phase 8?
