I'd say yes, there is a "pause" between challenges and between the last
challenge and the objective where the owner of the running team can decide to
pull out and the oponents can play stingers. That's the way we play it anyway.

I'd say yes again, for me it's the same as LOTI'ing a LOTI, you play/use a card
to counter another.

They have to be activated before the combat.

This are my opinions, go ahead say what you think :)
