View Full Version : Can the new Backswing potentially force you to attack a friendly model, ala Berserk?

So, I was initially happy with the removal of simultaneity from Backswing to make it play more like a new player would expect, but it was pointed out to me that the second attack isn't actually listed as optional. This creates the possibility that, with one enemy and one or more friendly models in your melee range, you allocate the first attack against the enemy model, destroy it, and then have a second non-optional attack that you'd then be forced to allocate to a friendly.

Is this intentional? If not, it seems like the most appropriate fix would be simply to make the second attack optional with "you may make" or equivalent language.

Locking this one as it's basically a duplicate.
