Timing on friendly and enemy units with Standby, when executing a Force Push


Recommended Posts

Hello there!

We had a situation during a tournament, hope you can help!

Enemy unit (A) has a standby token.

Friendly unit (B) has also a standby token.

Enemy unit (X) is engaged with a friendly force user (Y) with Force Push. Y uses Force Push to move X out of engagement. Assume that units with standby are at range 1-2 and have LOS to both X and Y. Which Standby tokens trigger first? My friendly B because X moved? Or enemy A because A performed a Force Push free action?

Second question: Whichever standby trigger first, if they attack the other unit with standby and successfully rolls a hit/crit, does the suppression strips the standby? Or all stanby are considered "triggered" and can be resolved?

Thank you very much!

Hello there,

Great question! The two opposing Standbys have closely related, but distinct triggers. Friendly unit B can spend their Standby in response to the Speed-1 Move being performed by the enemy unit. Enemy unit A can spend their Standby in response to the Force Push being completed. Because the Speed-X move is a part of the Force Push free action, the free action is not considered finished until after the Speed-1 move is completed.

Therefore, friendly unit B will have the first opportunity to spend their Standby, in response to the Speed-1 Move being completed. THEN, enemy unit A may spend theirs in response to the Force Push free action. If they receive a suppression or otherwise lose their Standby in that brief interim, they will not be able to spend it in response to the Force Push.

I hope this helps!
