What about destroy radial? Does the destruction radiate from your piece or the hacked piece? Who's pieces are being affected if it's the opponents power? Am I overcomplicating this?
Whooooaaaa, there little doogie. That's a lot of questions for a little whippersnapper like yourself. Here, have some milk and cookies and I'll explain.
When you use the power, it works as if that piece used the power. So, say you're blue and your opponent is red. If you hacked a red piece and used recruit row, and one of your pieces was in that row, it would go red. On the other hand, if you kamikazed, same deal. But, if there were no blue pieces in that row, you'd just get the, "No Effect/No Loss," response.
This is a risky power to use, like bombs. You might end up smartbombing yourself. On the other hand, you might exhaust your opponent's useful powers in a strategically bad place. Or you might run through their powers to see what they have, keep them from beneficiarying, teaching or whatever. If you see a hacked piece advancing like he's going to recruit your front row, activate that recruit in an earlier row so you don't get so screwed. It's got a lot of applications, but, again, risky.
