Hits and Damage with Non-Player Opponents: When you battle non-player opponents, any other player rolls the dice for Ancient, Guardian, and GCDS Attacks. If possible, dice are assigned so that your Ships are destroyed from largest to smallest. If none of your Ships can be destroyed in the Attack, dice are assigned to inflict as much damage to your Ships as possible, from largest to smallest.
Non-Player Opponent Battle Damage Example (Above): The Ancients rolled 5 and , for two Hits. The Interceptor is the only player Ship that can be destroyed, so one of the dice is assigned to it. The other is assigned to the largest player Ship possible, in this case the Dreadnought.
