This includes the running from sea battle and subsequent moving of hired hero in the following cases:
1) When hero uses "Admiral's Hat" artifact or artifacts that comprise it;
2) When hero has "Navigation" skill of any level;
3) When the Lighthouse is built or taken under control.
P.S. It is allowed to run from sea battle and move after it by hired hero on land in cases 2 and 3 if Navigation skill of basic level (or few levels starting from basic) or building/conquering of Lighthouse happened in the day of running.

P.S. It is allowed to use the artifacts comprising "Admiral's Hat" ("Captain's Hat" and "Necklace of navigator" ) without their uniting.
All tournament battles can be revised by tournament organizer to check the possibility of their repeating on any computer. Participants could be asked for the detailed descriptions of these battles.
During the battle repeating, morale/luck/special abilities shouldn't be the key factor in the victory (army preserving) and are not necessary at the battle repeating by organizer.
The player can build his victory on the basis of single morale/luck/special ability occurring, and ask the organizer to repeat his battle a few times to be convinced in the reality of results.
If you don't follow this rule or if organizer can't repeat a battle in 25 attempts then the your final save is voided.
P.S. Organizers don't count 25 attempts during this condition checking, instead, the reality and probability of the battle is evaluated.
