Post Force Field: Deflect and Block

Force Fields make reference to attacks which are 'deflected' and 'blocked'.

Does "completely blocked" mean attacks, that, say, don't make it past other protections? I would think that one would resolve FF first (since it is outside the body) before resolving things like Armor.

The Example given has a Force Field's Protection Points "blocking" damage, so that must be what is meant by 'blocking'. How does one 'deflect' damage with a Force Field then?

Examples:

A character's Force Field provides 5 points of Kinetic Protection, and is hit by 7 points of Kinetic damage. It deflects 5 points, and the attack is not completely blocked.

A character's Force Field provides 5 points of Kinetic Protection, and is hit by 4 points of Kinetic damage. It deflects 4 points, and the attack IS completely blocked.

Hope that helps,
Jeff

I like the new way the "ablative" aspect of force fields is handled in MP.

I like it, too, and am eager to see it work in play, as it's an Ability I don't think I've seen in action yet.
