Turn-Based Combat

Name Space:
Main

You know how, in some fights, the combatants seem to just take turns overpowering one another? Fighter A gets the early lead over Fighter B, then Fighter B reveals a trump card and starts dominating, only for Fighter A to ricochet right back.

It makes some sense, as such a formula of one-upsmanship allows several chances for Fighter A and Fighter B to reveal their arsenal. On the other hand, a common critique is that Turn-Based Combat lacks a real sense of tension due to the uneven action largely boiling down to "I got you! Now you got me! Now I got you!"
