10326 Back Off

Move type: Back Off
Back Off
Star MOVE card

:|: This card can be played only after this vessel suffers Hull damage by a successful attack.

Move this vessel 1 space.

Lets you move 1 space after being attacked, during combat.
This card's effect occurs out of the normal chain of events. If multiple attacks have been declared, for example, the priority player decides which attacks resolve first. Due to the "finalize your move" rule any modifiers to an attack must be applied at the time it is declared; then other players (such as the target player) may respond.

The effect of "Back Off" is not in response to the declaration of an attack or the playing of another card but to damage calculation (the attacked vessel must suffer Hull damage first). Thus the resolution of an attack is AFTER the declaration of said attack.
