Sorry! I must have misunderstood. I thought you were saying that in real life you thought a thrown weapon would get a bonus for facing where a bow would not, leading to the (effective in TFT terms) 50% bow/90% boomerang in the back situation!

Hey - of course - there's no ill will simply because two people see things differently! I hope you don't mind me trying to understand your thinking? I'm sorry if it felt contentious :)

Personally I'm glad to note that I'm not doing it any different than most people out there, and this whole thread makes it very plain that the wording in the new ITL is unhelpful at best, especially given the clarity in AM.

As Skarg(?) said - the most important thing is that any new publications and 'player aids' make it clearer, not more obscure. :/
