Does explode L1 still go off if friendlies are in the blast zone? N2 explicitly stated it did. N3 lacks this explicit wording. Whilst the Explode L1 skill lacks the attack label, the nested example of Explode vs Civilians describes the effect as an attack, and all attacks that would affect a friendly are considered Null. Therefore I don't believe Explode should trigger if it would affect a friendly, RAW.
