In the rule “The Battlefield”, change

A Jockeying Pilot may spend 10 Power to fire on a Bogey by making a blog post that specifies a Bogey as its target, and an integer number from 1 to 100 as the attack’s Fire Vector. This is known as a Fire Post.

As an atomic action, the Poindexter may resolve the oldest Fire Post that they have not already resolved, as follows (where its poster is the Aggressor):

A Jockeying Pilot may spend 10 Power to attempt to fire on a Bogey as a Timed Action, which is scheduled by making a comment on any Scheduling Post that specifies a Bogey as its target, and an integer number from 1 to 100 as the attack’s Fire Vector, and a time for it to occur (which must be a time of the pilot’s choice between 18 and 72 hours after the time at which the comment is made). This is known as a Fire Comment and its poster may be referred to as its Aggressor. The Pilot may combine multiple attempts into the same blog comment, by separating them with five or more tildes (~~~~~); each such attempt must separately specify all the necessary information except that the second or subsequent attack in a comment uses the same target as the previous one if it doesn’t specify a target.

When the Poindexter resolves an attempt to fire on a Bogey:
* If the Bogey no longer exists, the Poindexter shall reveal that the shot struck debris and the attempt to fire has no further effect.

Throughout the rest of the rule, change all occurrences of “the Poindexter adds a comment to say” to “the Poindexter shall reveal that”.

Properly refurbishing the combat rules as a timed action; also allowed multiple attacks in the same comment, and fixed a corner case where a Bogey is destroyed while the firing attempt is scheduled.
