Formation reaching [RT] or [BK] fatigue level at the end of the Art&Sk phase
Hi, just a question that bothers me since we played ESR.
If, at the end of the Art.&Sk phase a formation has enough fatigue points accumulated from the fire phase to make it to retreat or worse, does we wait until the status check phase at the end of the combat phase or does the result takes effect immediately before combat accurs ?
The Status Check only occurs at the end of the Combat Phase, so yes, you wait until then, and Formations only perform a Status Check if they perform an Assessment in Combat. Which means if a Formation reaches the threshold of Retreat [RT] or Break [BK] during the Artillery & Skirmishing Phase, if no Combat Assessment is triggered, then the Formation does not convert to Retreat [RT] or Break [BK].
