Start from the outermost circle. First resolve the attackers who touch only
a single stand. Then go one layer inside. First play the ones that haven't
fought yet (against unfought opponents, if posssible). After all models
fight once, go on with the second round. Play the outermost survivors and so

We have discussed this before in the old list, and I believe we've reached
consensus on the above method as a general house rule or even maybe as a
NetEpic Optional rule. Could somebody check the Core Rules and Optional
Rules booklets?

All damages are applied immediately.

The second.
