If there are two units (enemy & friend) that remain in contact at the end of a shock combat and are now Inactive and then a subsequent friendly formation activates sending one of its units to support their friend in what was a previous combat, are both units factored in for numbers of troops involved (both Active and Inactive units)?
If this is the case then:
I am assuming the TQ differential / weapon system / leadership / terrain modifier of the newly activated units that are supporting their friend in that combat is used but flank / rear advantage could be being caused by the inactive unit depending on its position.
Playing Granicus at the moment and Alexander is in a mess so please help me figure this out.
I asked this at the consimworld forum and Alan Ray clarified that only active units can engage in shock, the inactive units cannot.
