Did you mean specifically the Dragoons in the Foot section? It looks like the original:-

2/ Dragoons can make a full move even within 6" of the enemy if they pass a CMT.

has been replaced with:-

2) When making any move including an evade starting or ending within 6MU of the enemy, they may make a full dragoon mounted move if they pass a CMT.
3) If they make a move which would be longer than that allowed to dragoons on foot they may shoot but as Carbines (range and effect) not Muskets as they are shooting from horseback, or have dismounted so quickly that they cannot shoot properly as a unit.

Please confirm I have interpreted correctly, as this change seems to have overwritten the original version in this thread that I had noted; rather than it being published it as an update to the original guidance.

Also, are these changes specifically for the Attack! 2020 round of FOG-R only? Or are they intended to join the core of agreed amendments (like the "Cavalry if they pass a CMT, can either move 2MU and turn 180, or turn 180 and move 2MU, as well as turn 180, move 2MU and turn 180." - which seem to have been widely adopted as an agreed amendment)?

thanks

What is now in the announcement is what is being played at the comp.

Any rules, etc. that differ from the published rules (inc. errata and update) will only apply to the comp they are announced for.
