SYM+ PDS doesn't seem to work if you move sectors or if something in your sector moves out the turn you activate junk field.

ie. enemy unit in sector 1 and enemy unit+SYM in sector 2. SYM moves into sector 1 while activating junk field and PDS doesn't happen in either sector.

ie2. enemy unit+SYM in a sector, enemy unit moves out SYM sits still and uses junk field, unit doesn't get hit with junk field.

Feature, basicly how it really works the PDS effects are calculated at the beginning of the next turn. If this didn't happen the damage would be calculated before regen and you'll have alot of PDS kills appearing on the killboard.

But it should still work one time or the other in those cases
1. Moving into the sector of target.
2. target moving out with SYM sitting still.
3. SYM jumping out target sitting still.
The way it works now SYM PDS doesnt have very many safe uses.

Ya, it can't really hit anything on sector edges. That's where planning comes in...

Maybe we could do a extra ability for the SYM, where it will follow the SYM movement but only deal 50% damage.
