Since the knocked out rule states:

c. Knock out: If the number of Wound cards added to your
hand during a combat equals or exceeds your unmodified
Hand limit (the right number on your Hero’s Level token),
you are knocked out – immediately discard all non Wound
cards from your hand.

Does this effectively mean 2 things?

1. It's possible to take A LOT of damage if you attack alone for example ( in a co op game ).
Especially on higher difficulty levels making so that your melee attack never happens since you did not block.

2.It leads to a strategy where it's much safer and a must to go with spells and ranged/siege attack?

Thanks for the answers!

Your melee attack can happen... just not with cards from your hand (skills and units are still available).

But, yes, you want to avoid this. The recovery can take quite some time (as healing is slow without non-wounds to discard -- skills like motivation help a lot here). Ranged and siege attack can help. Units to absorb damage can help. Blocks and effects that cancel attacks help. All are useful tools.
