Default Release the hounds?

I was looking at my kroot and I swear they had something about if an opposing unit falls back from CC, the kroot hounds automatically inflicted one S4 wounds per hound. Am I crazy or what, can this be clarified by someone.

That's an old rule from the 3rd Edition Tau Codex.
It no longer exists as of Codex: Tau Empire.

Streamlining the rules I guess; and I doubt they will bring it back.

But also keep in mind that in 3rd edition adding kroot hounds took away a fast attack slot and krootoxen a heavy suppport slot.

An I5 sweeping advance is better than extra S4 attacks IMO.
If that rule comes back, eater's of the dead will also come back.
But I doubt either will come back.

Personally I'd rather sweeping advance with I5 than inflit a few str4 hits.
