Maybe, but we were not as lucky as some. A few days shift in the timing of
your assassination attempt would have caused you to lose even your first
attack, instead of only the last and with minimal losses to our side. And if
the code had been changed before last turn instead of after, you might have
won the last battle but your man would have been dead before he could have
done much harm and you would be out your generous compensation.

So count your blessings and if you feel a need to discuss these things do it
in email and not on the design list.
