Free Standing Web(4Q3c) How long does it last?

1. Do you count the impulse that you fired it in? Where it has no effect, then the next 3 where it is in effect.

2. only when it is in effect. 4 impulses of it being working?

I would guess 1, but I'm not sure...

I don't like that they changed it to only four impulses though, it kinda defeats the purpose of slowing the enemy down, instead of dancing them away with Web Fists.

Hod got it completely correct: four impulses after it solidifies (for a total of five impulses).

The rule was changed for two reasons:
1) It was a mistake. It was always supposed to be 4 impulses, not 8. It is only supposed to last for half of a turn.
2) Leaving it at 8 impulses was heavily unbalancing. At 8 impulses, you could have a single web caster present and maintain a permanent wall.
Putting them together it was a mistake waiting for abuse. It needed to be fixed.
