Re: (TFT) Disengaging - Revision in Melee - Not a free attack.
I think you are hung up on the phrase "free attack", which you have been using.
It is not a free attack, the opponent uses his action to do it. Additionally it is an
attack at a DX penalty, so far from being free, it is an attack at a (potentially)
significant penalty. Think of it as a, "likely wasted attack".
Warm regards, Rick.
