If players decided to use the optional module "Tides of Battle", are Tides of Battle cards used when attacking a neutral force?
The section about "Tides of Battle" on the rulebook (page 29) mentions that they are used on combat. But when reading the section about Neutral Forces on the rulebook (page 26), it did not become clear to me whether or not destroying a neutral force strictly counts as combat.
I couldn't find anything relevant in the errata/FAQ either.
Thanks in advance!
