When a face-up monster you control is destroyed and sent to the Graveyard: Destroy the 1 face-up monster on the field that has the lowest ATK (your choice, if tied), and if you do, inflict damage to both players equal to half of that monster's ATK.
The monster flipped up in response to your attack. Therefore, when the monster was destroyed it was Face-Up.
Doesn't work like that you moron. The card has to be already face up when it was destroyed. If the card effect works for face down enemies since they get flipped face up anyway when destroyed, the card effect would not have to specify "face up".
Actually it does work like that. If a card is destroyed by an effect like Paladin of White Dragon or Dark World Lightning, then that counts as face-down. How do you think flip monsters work if they don't flip face up?
Yea, the only way a monster is destroyed face-down by battle is if the attacking monsters effect or another card allows you to do so. A face-down monster is flipped face-up right before the damage step btw
Don't understand why you can't chain to this after battle, it's not a counter trap and the battle is over because the condition is to hit the grave. So battle has ended and all quick plays/counter traps should be playable again. So why?
