    • Bidding for uncontrolled majors

      I'll post a brief "how to" in the tutorial but your "bid" is made using an historical national modifier (ie France v Prussia is -3; not good) plus a bonus if you are dominant, a negative if unstable). Hi dr wins.

      Before we get to the actual bid I will post the current political status and national modifiers.

            Drop me a note if you wish to attempt to gain control of either or both of Prussia and Turkey (just confirm past instructions).
            Cheers.

                • If I am reading the map right, Austria has conquered my possessions in Italy ... without any battles or sieges being declared............. WTF?

                  I get sick one week and unlimited hell breaks loose. What is going on here?

                  • They have occupied your central Italian territories and your army is marching north as ordered. The Austrians did not move far, just one zone out of Modena.

                    Sort of like an air burst of fire works.

                    Irs winter, no one is moving quickly (open country costs 2 move points, mountains cost 3) so that 1 zone for most corps, 2 zones for French/French satellites, 2 for cav.

                    Everyone just remember,... think long term. We have only done 12 turns out of 132.

                    • Yes, but those places had Garrisons....
                      Were shots fired, or did they simply surrender once breached? If the later, I should be getting those units back later.

                      I looked at the rules, and I thought there would be a little more notice, guess I just don't know where to look.

                        Yes, there were siege battles as reported in the Austrian land combat phase (see post 88).

                        Florence was breached and the garrison destroyed. Leghorn was besieged, held the wall but starved to death. See post 88 again but the Spanish turn.

                        • Siege Strategy

                          TIPS for small garrisons and Siege Battles

                          If you have cities with small garrisons, where a fight will not accomplish more than forcing the enemy to pause to assault the city while they kill your troops, consider the following:

                          - Order the garrisons to surrender if the walls are breached (you simply let me know and I push the button).

                          The enemy must still breach the city and your garrison will become prisoners but after the war the POWs are released. Or you can negotiate a prisoner exchange while still at war if your opponent thinks it worthwhile (maybe you have a mutual enemy that you could use the released troops against.

                          FYI - garrisons do have a chance to 'sortie' if the city is not breached. They have the possibility of killing an enemy factor or but risk casualties as well. If you do not want sorties you can tell me that too.
