Actually, I just reviewed the text pages. Lloyd was involved in the discussions over Ace's plan, and is going to be in the Max Stack against the Archons to "double the Unipegataurs", whatever that means. So, yeah, he's saving his Juice, but he'll be a definite target not on the Tower. I expect Pierce in that assault, too, in order to keep the King alive. Ace will want to go... but I'm not certain what he could do except soak damage. The Hat-a-mancer is almost certainly going to be firing the remaining air defenses.
and it would continue to guard the bridge even if flying units attempted to take the bridge, because those are it's orders.
It's a matter of definition. "Hold the bridge" means to "keep in our Side's control". They can't obey that order. You think they should stand and die, like robots.
There are some things that force a non-Leadership unit's activity. But not everything is. Remember that Stanley was once a Piker. If a unit could never make a decision, Stanley could not have stood out and been given the Leadership special. There must be some freedom of thought and action in order for Stanley's rise to make sense.
What to do when you can't achieve your orders has to be one of those, because any time your orders do apply, you don't get to choose much.
Either way, this kind of discussion on Duty and unit behavior isn't really what the thread is about, so I'll say no more on it here.
Who says that this thread isn't about everything we choose to discuss. No one has moderated out anything that I have ever seen here.
