Re: (TFT) Disengaging - Revision in Melee - Not a free attack.

Hi Gem,
  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.
