Re: Was it a cat I saw? Was it a rat I saw? New idea (feel free to tell me I'm crazy and this sucks, or any other comments/suggestions/etc.)

Yes that works. Compare to now, where Power Draining another player is next to impossible: "Oh look at me, I'm standing in the middle of my units. You can't touch me! Nyah nyah!" For that matter, it's pretty much impossible to do anything except fire salvos at other player's Walls.

People seem to like the idea of higher interactivity between players & units, I just thought this would be a nice way to do it. Plus, it helps counteract some of the "eggshell/turtle" strategies that work right now (it'll work better with more Wall-ignoring abilities too).

And if you're worried about getting Power Drained, you could always Teleport/Jump/Feather away. Jumps are free after all, and there's no penalty for storing a few "in reserve." There's nothing wrong with being afraid of rats: you never know when they'll be carrying the next plague around. ;-)
