in the game https://terminal.c1games.com/watch/4272798 on round 17 my encryptor appears to get attacked after the pings self destruct? Is this supposed to happen?
Ya, this has always been the behavior. Units that are reduced to zero health at any point during an action phase ‘frame’ are not removed from play until the end of the frame, and still attack. I’ll make a small clarification in the docs, since this is one of the more unintuitive behaviors in the game.
Does this imply that self destruct damage occurs before all other damage, or just that unit’s damage?
Self destruct damage occurs before any units fire. When units attack, units destroyed by a self destruct and the unit that self destructed can no longer be targeted, as they are already destroyed.
