In base CE, in order to use a Ranged attack, you need to have someone to shoot.

From the Rules:

"Ranged X Attack" (where X is a number known as the strength of the Ranged Attack) is shorthand for

"Target a Follower or a Personality without Followers in the current enemy army. If its Force is equal to or less than X, destroy it."

War of Honor removes the required targeting. Meaning you can fire off a Ranged attack at an Empty battlefield. This is primarily useful for ranged attacks that have secondary effects you might want (honor gain), and, Ring of Water (you can play Ranged Attack Battle actions even if there's no opposition to shoot).

I see, thanks.

I do wonder why this was desirable though?


Likely to have one more way to put Ring of Water or Ring of Void into play for enlightenment victories.

That is the main way I can see it impacting a game.

Also with personalities like Matsu Yosa it allows you to use her Ranged 4, gain 1 honor unopposed to gain the honor

Also I'm fairly certain this is a change that is taking effect in the upcoming Emperor Edition of the CCG, and they want to keep the rules of WoH as updated as possible.

Is it possible to use a ranged attack on a province with no enemy cards there and therfore destroy the province?

No, ranged attacks must target followers or personalities.
