Wowee, don't really know what you're asking here guy.

If you want to know if Ethereals should be used in CC, the answer is no. Ethereals are strictly ofr morale benefits.

If you want to know if Aun'Va should be used for CC, the answer is yes, but only in an army tuned to make maximum benefit of his bonuses when he dies.

Ethereals arn't too bad at combat but thier real weakness is the lack of any protection. The best you can do is give them some shield drones (which helps a lot), but then thier cc ability isen't really worth that much, since the only way to really excel at close combat is to have a power weapon. The honor blade is nice, but it's only really usefull against light infintry.

Quick question. In an allied game in which an Ethereal dies, are we angry against every enemy or just the one that killed the Ethereal?

I think he is asking why etherals are put into CC...

This is done in armies where people want the preffered enemy bonuses. I will spare you the details of the composition, but the point is that in CC, the enemy has no choice but to kill the etheral. Your opponent can choose not to shoot at him, but when he is in CC, its a done deal

Oh, and Castris, its against the whole army .

All that is said is that it counts agains the enemy, so as far as I'm concerned, my enemies ally is my enemy as well ;D.

i think they would be willing to kill every one when he dies. its like if a gang killed your Mother and Father. you would want to kill All gangs not just that one.
