With the Regionals season heating up, I was wondering what the official ruling would be for this particular situation?
If someone targets something to damage/capture (unit, enhancement, etc.) that cannot be damaged/captured does the originating player get to re-target something else or does he lose that action?
For example, Preparation For Battle Objective is out and the Death Star Dial is below 4 (relevant game text is " Your shielded units cannot be damaged while the Death Star dial is 4 or lower. ". My opponent attempts to Force Choke a Hoth Scout who has a shield. He forgets about the gametext and is reminded by the LS player that he cannot damage the scout. Does he then get to choose another target or is the Force Choke lost?
Note, this is for a high lvl tournament and not a friendly game.
