If I promote a unit so that it is better a fighting of rough terrain for example.

When I am in combat and attacking an enemy, who needs to be in the rough terrain them or me for me to receive the bonus?


In general, it is determined by the tile on which the attacked unit is standing.

So, in case of melee units, it's where the combat takes place - i.e. in the hex containing the defending unit.

In case of ranged units, attack bonuses depend on the hex on which the target is standing.

    I checked in game, the bonus specifically says that it applies based on where the target is. – bwarner Oct 1 '10 at 11:14

    So in summary? In all cases it is where the defending unit is standing that counts? – Dan Oct 1 '10 at 14:25
  • Thank you, I've been wondering this. I wish Firaxis had worded the upgrades more clearly, you can take their wording either way. – Feral Chimp Jun 4 '11 at 20:45
