*I don't think I was winning the first one, actually. I think Emily was. Please note the gerund. Those rules had a big ol' flaw that just made us all mad at each other so you don't want to use them.

Downed mechs can be used as cover and further destroyed. All of these things fit into the rules perfectly, and provided that the involved players are okay seeing their creations ripped to bits, it makes for a really cool aesthetic as the game progresses, with bits of mechs and destroyed terrain scattered around the battlefield.
What about the stationary objectives, though? Can they be used as cover? Damaged? Destroyed? It would seem to make sense to me that one option would be to just flat out destroy an objective instead of trying to take it (IE: "If we can't have it, NO ONE CAN!"). How well is this sort of thing supported by the rules? Or are stationary objectives just considered non-existent except for the purpose of capturing and holding them (and aesthetics, of course)?

There are campaign rules!?
Are these in the book, or something your group was using to make things more interesting?
