I recently purchased this game & after a struggle with the manual and 2 actual playthroughs, we had encountered a situation for which we couldn't find a solution.
This is the situation:
I had played the n°2 order card (activate hex, move troops in from up till 2 spaces away - supremacy: do the same, but no battle allowed)
Step 1 was a success & I had supremacy.
The enemy had retreated from previous hex & had 2 bowman standing up in the hex where he had retreated to. With my hero and his object, I was able to rout the remaining 2 bowman, and then I rushed in a berserker of mine.
Question is, is that invasion still considered as a battle or not?
Since routed units in a hex can not partake in a battle and there were no more other units present, I was inclined to say it was a legal move...
Any of the more expirienced players who can shine a light upon this?
