Hy everybody !
Last night I played HH and we had a problem with rules. Actually my opponent did cause I'm pretty sure I was right...
He attacked me with RELENTLESS ATTACK order, which allows to attack even from activated area. He has 2 origin areas with units near the target area and he wanted to join battle with Jaghatai Khan (Jaghatai was 3 areas from origin areas)
BUT Jaghatai was in an ACTIVATED area.
My opponent wanted to join battle but I said he could not, because the area where Jaghatai was, was activated, prohibiting any move.
This is what my opponent said :
- The RELENTLESS attack allows me to attack from activated area, Jaghatai special ability is a sort of "distant attack" so his area is considered as an origin area !
- I said ti him : No ! Jaghatai must move to join an origin area (that is his special power), like flying units do. So his area (not adjacent to the target area), is NOT an origin area, otherwise his ability would be writen like this "Jaghatai can launch distant attack from a not adjacent area".
My opponent then said : The "joining battle" rules for flying units (and Jaghatai) are in the combat chapter, and not in the "movement" chapter. So it is not a movement !!!!
- I said (in a friendly way but a little bit irritated) it was dishonesty.
He finally won the battle, without using Jaghatai, but telling me his interpretation was as good as mine...
I need other opinions !!!!
PS : Excuse my bad english, I hope you understood my point...
