    A// Possessed TAG and DOMINATE ZO how does it work ?
    B// Possessed TAG and CONTROL THE COMMUNICATION ANTENNA how does it work ?

    it look like the TAG isn't in null state so:
    1// the owner have the point of the TAG for dominating the ZO ?
    2// the hacker have it ?
    3// no one does ?

    same question for the antenna
    thx for your time

    PS: I have Frontiline & acquisition ITS scénarios in mind for those questions

    Possessed is a null state. No one scores with it.

    okay I missed that where do you see it ?
    EDIT:thx

    well they can remove a lot of stuff from possessed then:
    • Possessed troopers count as casualties for the purposes of Retreat!
    • Players cannot count Possessed troopers as survivors for Victory Point purposes at the end of the game.
    those two line are already in the null state

    There's a fair amount of redundancy like that in the rules. It can cause some confusion, especially when two rules say slightly different things.

    Redundancy like that is good, though. Infinity needs more of it. But it also needs to be consistently worded.

    Yeah I guess so. It's just where intended redundancy makes the rules more obscure (eg the redundacy is inconsistent or too dense or easily mistaken for a further or different meaning) it causes problems. If it was all consistently worded with well defined special key words etc it would be easier to understand.

    Yeah, inconsistently-worded redundancy is causing rules debates.

    Hope this is part of the N4 update!
