Disband/Build question

#1 Post by JimFive » Fri Apr 13, 2018 12:52 pm

Does disbanding happen before building?

If I have to retreat and choose to disband does that allow me another build (assuming I have enough SCs to build)?

The idea being that this would allow me to redeploy a remote army back to my home territory.

Disbands happen during the retreat phase, right before the build phase, so yes, you absolutely can disband an obsolete army and build a new one in your home SC

Yes... chance is, of course, correct. Sometimes this allows for a fun and sneaky maneuver that allows you to bring a unit from the front back to defend your home SC's quickly.

That just made me think of a situation where you have an ally attack you so you can disband and redeploy.

Exactly, Jimfive. Although you can also do it with an enemy attack... it is more 'fun' when you work with an ally to pull this off.
