I often run big fights with 10 or 20 people on each side.  Normalizing the
DX, just seems like a really big overhead.


I wouldn't have the GM reveal the DX except perhaps vaguely through clues... though TFT's action sequence by adjDX would give it away and sadly incentiveize the tedious & gamey technique of noticing what sequence everyone acted in order to deduce adjDX, which with such a rule would become much more significant.

Yeah, I guess that's not so uncomplicated a way to do it, for my tastes either, unless Neil has figured out a nice way to do it we're not thinking about.
