    Now that we know Tarik will be a wildcard in Ramah - he will be able to join non-jumpy links, like Gulam. How would this work? Can you declare short jump at all? Or would he be limited to full-order Jump only?

    All Fireteam members declares the same order.

    If that order is a Short Skill Jump, and some members do not have access to a Short Skill Jump, then they Idle.

    From previous discussions (because it's not a new issue):

    Declare Jump as a Short Movement Skill - the troopers without Super Jump will Idle.
    Declare Jump as an Entire Order Skill - everyone gets to Jump, and those with Super Jump can combine both MOV values as per the Super Jump rules.

    Worth noting that in the Daedalus' Fall bat rep, Bostria short skill super jumps his Keil-Saan in a triad with Draal Saboteurs, and moves the saboteurs as a short skill at the same time. While it is against the rules, the rules are obviously clunky and unintuitive enough in this regard that even Bostria doesn't like them. Hopefully they get updated soon with all mixed super-jump/non-super-jump links and G:sync's added to the game recently. There is an FAQ coming up in April...

    this wasn't the first time Bostria committed rules errors. It seems like the designers of the game are just like everybody else. No one can master this behemoth of rules.

    I bet that there are quite a few things that just don't get played the way they actually work by CB, or even playtested that way, like Batroids effectively having 2 Strength if they suffer two damage and activate Dogged, etc.

    This is part of why it's ridiculously gamey that Nomads get a mysterious super-jump remote.

    It's quite obvious from the batrep that Bostria doesn't play that much, though. That's fine; he's admitted as much. It's just awkward when the rules are so clunky that CB doesn't even get them right, but CB is focused on things other than cleaning up the rules.

    It's kind of an inherent (but not catastrophic) problem with having the marketing guy demonstrate a quite complex product. Bostria's main skill is to be enormously engaging, not technically perfect.
