Welcome back, General!
Misdirection contains upcoming content from Command & Conquer (Generals 2).
The content may change substantially over time as more details are revealed.
This power creates holographic copies of the affected troops that, to the enemy, look like real units. The holograms can be used in a variety of ways, from scouting into enemy territory without risking real units to providing additional targets to enemies so that your real units stay alive longer and do more damage. At level 3, the holograms created by Misdirection will actually do damage with their attacks, allowing you to put some more firepower on enemies while the enemy attempts to sort out the real units from the fakes.
The APA general Blackjack is known to be famous for using this power to distract his enemies from realising his plans until it is too late to react to.
