The Pettengale Sweep
is a modernised version of the regular Crossmead Spiral
. While it is still defeated by strong blocking moves, it is a useful tactic in a modern player's armoury. It raises line velocity
by between 10% and 50%, and reduces Beck's Coefficient
by approximately half of this amount. This causes a tactically significant skew to the value of Ould's Inclination
, which is a key benefit of performing this manoeuvre. It also provides an excellent way of collecting a large token bonus, although Pettengale Sweeps that cross more than one fare boundary
usually consume almost as many tokens as they produce.
