FWIW I agree with Graham. "Combat is adjudicated in the next impact phase".

But the RAW leave it open to interpretation. It clearly doesn't happen that often but it does need to be clarified one way or the other.

Frequently, for foot to pursue into the mounted, that will mean the routers have either burst through the mounted or shifted sideways a bit and run behind them. JAP break offs occur before JAP routs. Often this will mean that the mounted can't break off and drop a level, and then have to fight an impact next bound anyway at a further disadvantage.
When foot charge mounted, it is usually not good for the foot.

It is unlikely that the cavalry will be prevented from breaking off, if the routers have shifted, then it's almost impossible for the routers to prevent the break off. If the cavalry have been burst through the routers will almost certainly prevent the break off. Although expecting cavalry to break off from enemy moments after having been burst through is expecting a lot.

I've had this happen a couple of times. It is the first time I've ever _wanted_ to break off from enemy.

Hello

I have rulebooks 1 and 2 but was not convinced.
Very interested in starting with FoG, I was prepared to order now the v3 rulebook and checked the forum before...my impression:

3rd rule edition out not a long time ago and already a lot of errata???...Even the errata with errors!!!!!!!
Why should I buy then such a rulebook?

Why is it not possible to avoid such an amount of errors!?!

Clearly done on purpose just to annoy people.

There are two reasons:

1. There was an error by the publisher and a page of corrections were not made. This is most of the errata.

2. We are human.

Version 3 is a better rule set than version 1 or version 2.
