Can light cavalry cause disruption if there are 2(or more) ranks of five in 8th edition?

I keep thinking it doesn't but can't find it in the rulebook I think am just confusing myself with 7th edition rule but it is really difficult to prove a rule does not exist.

In fact it is impossible, and as for the question, I too cannot think of having read such a rule.

The Fast Cavalry rules do not make an exception from the normal rules for disrupting ranks.

So, that's a "yes they disrupt if sufficient ranks" then ?

It's a pretty logical conclusion since their Fast Cavalry rule does not have anything which says otherwise.

I believe this is somewhat of a hangover from 7th when fast cav had some combat restrictions.

However as others have pointed out above, in 8th they don't.

If anything it's partly the point of them, as their shooting is usually a bit pathetic so with less turns of shooting overall in 8th then leaving them the ability to do something useful in combat is certainly nice :)

Well, you still need at least 10+ fast cavalry models to achieve rank disruption. This is a unit that takes up the same space on the table as a 20+ strong unit of Orc Boyz. It's hardly subtle.

subtle, no. But with wolf riders costing 10pts a model now, you can get some super fast rank disruption on the cheap.
