Melee and Activations

Post by grenadiergrandson on Thu Oct 06, 2016 9:17 am

We had this question last night, any help appreciated. Cheers

General A is active.

He has 2 units A1 and A2 side by side, both facing enemy unit B at 1BU distance. Neither have activated yet.

A1 charges B, loses the melee and retreats 2BU

B pursues 1BU and contacts A2. A2 loses the melee and retreats 1BU. B fails to pursue.

A2 is now out of contact.

Can A2 now activate, or did fighting the melee count as it having activated so it can now do nothing?

Good question.

I think that having fought a melee it is done.

A2 has been activated by the melee. It is called passive activation. Now, this happens because A2 is in the same Command of A1, so the active Command. Was A2 in a Different Command, then could be activated when its Command becomes active, even if it fought a melee within the same turn.
