A moderator can kill a Ninja fairly reliably and this suggestion changes nothing of the fact, you just have to play by the correct range bands. For instance, a Spetsnaz with a Boarding Shotgun isn't the best person to round a corner at point blank range on for a Moderator - neither should a Ninja. Keep out of the 3" area. If your argument is that with Hidden Deployment this is impossible (which it wasn't but could have been if you'd addressed the threads arguments insteas of your assumptions about the thread) then I'm afraid the game is full of little things that just jumps up on you and you have to bite the bullet and make the best of a shitty situation (such as as couple of grunts boxing you in during Power Pack) Not sure about you, but I usually use HMGs to deal with long range ARO troops. Typically much safer and less order intensive.
