Positioning and targeting
Each unit has a position within a lane, which determines a number of interactions, including targeting
.: Some abilities and effects have keywords like neighboring allies or enemy neighbors, which is based on positioning as well

During the targeting Phase, each unit will target a position which designated its attack target for when there's no unit in front of the target
.: Units will always attack the unit in front of it if there is one. The targeting mechanic only chooses targets for when there's no unit in front of it.
.: Units that are played during the round will have their targets chosen when they're played
.: Units will attack any unit in that position during the Combat Phase which means:
-- If an enemy unit swaps position, your unit will still attack in that direction, not the original unit
.: If there are no units in that position, the unit will attack the building behind it

Some effects and abilities can change the position of a unit, such as cards with Swap

Even when a unit is moved, their targeting direction will still be maintained
