They require Control
to place. Every character has 1 base control. You can get 2 more control from the Groove ability. This allows you to place 3 microbots natively without the need of control being on your gear (though of course you can get about 5+ more control off gear if you really want).
Charges are increased by leveling your Microbot
abilities. Charges determine how many turns your microbot/motherfogger/rails will last. Each turn, they lose a charge. They will also lose a charge if attacked. However, (at work right now so going off the top of my head instead of looking at what it is in total in the game) you get I believe 8 charges with the Microbot and Groove abilites maxed. This allows for your rails and motherfogger to last quite a long time.
Rails gain length based on the level of your Microbot
abilities. With both maxed, the rail length makes it to 7 total length from microbot to microbot (5 spaces in between each bot). Rails can be created around something, such as yourself, an ally, even an enemy. A simple way to use it (if you can place max length rails, the range of Microbot is 3, place that as far as you can in one direction from yourself, then in the opposite direction place the second. This will create a 7 length rail right under your feet with yourself in the middle. Not the most elegant, but it works for simple purposes.
Like the motherfogger, it is created off of a microbot, however, it doesn't use charges but 30% of your Fogger's HP.
It only lasts one turn. It's only supposed to last one turn. If you've seen someone use it a second turn in a row, that is because they've cast it again. HOWEVER, by casting Fogginator a second turn in a row, instead of costing 1wp, it will consume your remaining WP. To circumvent that, use Fogginator every other turn so that it only costs 1wp.

The thread may call itself "Idea: Tri Fogger Build", but I kind of hijacked it and started explaining all types of Foggers (in a bit too much detail if I do say so myself). I do however need to update my posts as they put the charge boosts on groove, when they were originally on Armor Plating, and Groove originally had the bonus lock for Earth attacks, which is now on Armor Plating. Other than that, have at it.
Still need more help? Just ask away (granted you read my posts and found I didn't explain it or didn't explain it well enough first).
