Hello, some questions about Counter Attacks in SOTE.
If one active player’s Unit breaks, the other player can select one of his Units and make a Counter Attack, if it fires or charges the Broken Unit, it instantly Retreats again (and rolls a Mishap)… so basically if one active player’s Unit breaks, it Retreats 2 times if fired upon / charged?
If the inactive player Counter Attack breaks another active player’s Unit (by firing or charging), does it trigger another Counter Attack by him?
1: If you attack the same unit, it would retreat again yeah. Typically you want to do this, to both force the enemy line to have a gap in it, and to inflict some casualties, but if the enemy is coming on strong, you may want to fire at something else.
2: The inactive player can’t trigger a counter-attack (counter-counter-attack?)
This could be a little clearer in the rulebook, I apologize.
