I just started to play HoM and use the 2nd Rules, two points:
1. What happened to rule 11.5 e (Surronded Retrated Foce)? Is it deleted now? No more PW influence by that rule?
2. I really don't understand the naval rules.
It is possible to activate a squadron before turn 4 by activating it (+1 to Blockade Level) by a 2,3 or 4 Ops Card, correct?
What happens at the end of the turn, is it automatically deactivated in turns 1 - 3? Otherwise I didn't understand rule 14.3 last sentence:
Once War is declared, the only way a squadron can become inactive is through play of Rough Seas.
Or what else are possibilities to deactivate a squadron before U.S. Declaration of War?
Thanks for help
