what? i've never seen this happen. why wouldn't somebody take a bonus? and they do what they just deploy and attack non-important terits?
wait, my bad, i actually saw this happen on 2 occasions where i was the only one to go for engines/steam while the other(s) kept attacking my troops on non important terits. on both occasions i won proving that not going for bonuses is wrong.
but i've never seen a game where nobody goes for bonuses. that's not strategy. it's like a lottery. you just pray for good dice and don't bother with tactics. who on earth would do that?
