If you have a “chance” to win a battle you can plan to move your carrier through it on non combat.
Imagine a destroyer is blocking your carrier and you got 2 fighters, you can send 1 to the destroyer and the other 3 spaces away where it would land on your carrier after.
Yes, but that’s not what was asked, so let’s not confuse the issue. It’s not about planning, it’s about whether it’s allowed to moved through a space where combat occurred. And that is allowed.
There are three things that affect strategy. You and your opponents/teammates, the setup, and the dice.
Because there is no affect of dice G1 for instance, the only factors are you and the setup. This comes down to the fact that the setup offers some moves and you pick the best one.
