        The current rules make transfers and AP increases a lot less common.

        This was a major problem noticed during playtest - what I call the video syndrome - fight lots of minor guys to get the powerups before facing the end of level boss. So it was changed.

        They do happen, but a lot less often.

        I can see it happening occasionally - if you have just killed a whole bunch of people without tiring or getting injured much, you have a big advantage of confidence (on your part) and fear (on theirs), and you are probably really getting into your killing stride. But this should be an occasional happening, not the routine.

	Cheers
