Battle Phases

Mass combat generally takes place over the course of three battle phases—the Tactics Phase, the Ranged Phase, and the Melee Phase.

Tactics Phase: During the Tactics phase, each army selects which of its tactics it will use during the battle.

Ranged Phase: The Ranged phase typically lasts for 1 round, although the battlefield’s shape and other conditions can extend this duration. During this phase, any army with Ranged capability makes an attack against an enemy army. Armies without Ranged capability cannot attack during this phase.

Melee Phase: The Melee phase begins as the armies involved finally clash—this phase continues until one army is defeated.
