    Two big things I like about full army deployments:

    1. DEFINITELY speeds up deployment, and gets rid of awkward moments where someone left a millimeter too little space with unit A and now have to budge it to fit unit B where they need it, but technically that would be cheating in alternating deployment.

    2. I like the near-certainty on both sides of knowing if you need to deploy offensively or defensively. The alternating method sometimes leads to non-games where both players want to go first, and essentially have a coin flip after they’re locked in to their choice to see which player gets a massive advantage. (And yes, like you Reece, I don’t like seize being a thing at all.) A good example of this was that streamed finals game of… I can’t recall if it was nova or adepticon, but basically the players both deployed to go first, and then the one that failed to get first turn simply conceded on the spot.

    Both deployments are far from perfect, as the entire I go you go system gives the first turn boogeyman immense weight either way. But under the assumption that they aren’t changing to combined turns/alternating activation mechanics, the full army deployment method is the best course of action.
