I ran into this debate here

Quote:
4.8.4 Cadre Markers. Keep cadre markers near the map. Whenever the last cell in a country without a cadre is removed by Disrupt (7.4) or event (not Jihad or Travel, 8.3-8.4), place a cadre there. Cadres enable Recruiting (8.2.2). Whenever a cell is placed from the Funding track into a country with a cadre, remove the cadre.


Question: The cadre is removed only on recruit operations or also by events placing cells?

Example: Pakistan has no cells, has a cadre marker. Taliban is played as event (#93). A cell is placed in Pakistan. Will the cadre maarker will be removed?

Seems to me it must be, the rule specifically says 'placed from the Funding Track' and that's where a cell placed by an event comes from.

Yes, under any event or operation that adds a cell to a country, if that country had a cadre, that cadre is removed (as it is no longer needed, you can still recruit there)

Thanks guys. So travelling cells don't remove the cadre, but recruiting or placing cells via event removes it.

Correct. Don't forget the US player can Disrupt Cadres too.

I never noticed that distinction. Thanks for pointing that out.

I never made the difference before, so thanks a lot..

If an event permit the removal of a cell, can it also be used to remove a cadre? If a last cell in a country is removed by an event, does it get replaced by a cadre like when removed by a disrupt?

Hi! No, if all it says is "cell", it means just a cell.

Yes, see the rule quoted in the original post.

I'm not sure I understand the question here.

Travelling cells that land in a country with a Cadre marker DO remove the Cadre marker. The only purpose of a Cadre marker is to mark countries where you can recruit even though no cells are present there. Hence, there's no reason to have a Cadre marker and a cell in the same country...

Cadre markers cannot travel the way that cells do, however.

A cell travelling into a country doesn't remove the cadre. Look at 4.8.4 in the rules.

'Whenever a cell is placed from the Funding Track into a country with a cadre, remove the cadre.'

That's the only situation listed where the marker is removed.

Also see 8.3.2., if a cell is already in a country and tries unsuccessfully to travel elsewhere, the cell is removed to the Funding Track and no cadre is placed.

The way I remember the Cadre rules is that if country B has no cells, and I move a cell from A to B and then from B to C, the answer to "Does B have a cadre?" does not change because of the cell that was "just passing thru".

So travelling into a place that has a Cadre does not remove the cadre (but placing from the track does), and the last cell leaving due to travel does not place a cadre (but losing the last cell to an event does).

The case I always have to look up is whether losing your last cell to Jihad places a cadre.
