    – If an enemy is on a tile with an increased action point cost of movement (but no penalty to combat skills), “enemy on bad terrain” is listed as a negative factor
    – “Surrounded” is listed as a positive factor when attacking an enemy that has the Underdog perk (e.g. a swordmaster)
    – “Armed with shield” is listed as a negative factor when using the Split Shield skill
    – Knock Back and Repel/Hook attacks are listed as having a high % chance when the real chance is zero % (i.e. if the target is surrounded by bodies/objects or is immune)

    And possibly other things to be added when I remember them.

    – ancient dead are listed as being “resistant to ranged attacks” when you attack with a throwing axe, but thrown axes do full damage

    Obviously, in the first item I listed in the first post, it should say “is listed as a positive factor”, not “is listed as a negative factor”.

    And what is considered a consistant baseline?
    – effects from player’s POV
    Or
    – effects that affect that particular model in certian interaction?

    So that terrain feature on the enemy model may be “Red” if we are talking about tooltip that shows effects on that model, or may be “Green” if we are lookng at tooltip during targeting of that model with an attack.

    I don’t remember the actual clours of that entries, but it may be worthwile to take a look

    – “Surrounded” is listed as a positive factor when attacking an enemy that has the Underdog perk (e.g. a swordmaster)

    Well, in general, BB doesn’t display that action will have no effect because of someting.
    – so no hints of “immune” on tooltips in regard to (Orc warriors, no_space) and (bash, hook, repel) interaction
    – so no tooltips on “immune” on tooltips in regard to (Orc warriors, Orc Warlord) and (stun) intecations
    etc..
