i keep seeing this term thrown around, and i'm just lost. not sure if its just a dumb question.
but what exactly does min-max mean?
basically what its says min-max, depends on the sentence used with it.
typically on LO it means minimising and maximising squads.
For example in DE a good example of min & max squads is having 6x5 man warrior squads with a lance in each squad, 6 raider's with a lance, maximising all troop slots, getting the most lances you can out of it and minimising squad size at 5 warriors the lowest you can use.
If you're always worried about crushing the ants beneath you...you won't be able to walk.
Another common usage is minimising your weaknesses while maximising your strengths, although in a... cheesy fashion, IE putting holofields and spirit stones on a falcon and making sure it moves 6"+ every turn.
One pencil stab isn't dangerous, 20 000 pencil stabs are. Although the one pencil that hits you in the eye...
I thought it ment minimise squad size but maximise firepower upgrades (like having Las/plas units of 6 marines).
My interpretation is "Minimun effort - Maximun Gain". That means building a list with the maximun firepower with the minimun cost.
Odd enough, I discovered that for others means "minimazing the maximun possible loss".
