Default Being fearless

in 4th ed, if you were outnumbered at most combat, you had to start taking saves, as i am sure you all know. I was looking at the 5th ed book, but no where could i find this, have they scrapped this rule? if they have I'm annoyed, as there is no disadvantage of being fearless anymore. Have you guys seen something i have missed?

Its on page 44, underneath the "NO RETREAT!" heading. You take as many wounds as you lost combat by, say you lost 1 more model than your opponent, then you make another save.

Interestingly enough, if they enemy cannot hurt the unit they are fighting, then no wounds are taken from No Retreat.

Yeah, that's something that I hardly see coming up much at all. Most often, you lost to the unit you are facing off against, so they can hurt you, seeing as you lost the combat. I only see this coming up with multiple combats, like my Boyz and Grots are facing some monstrous creature. I could win the combat but lose all my Boyz, leaving me with just Grots, then this rule would come into play.

Anyway, Icer is on the money regarding Fearless and taking wounds for losing.
