  • Battle of the Atlantic

    British, Dane, French Spanish and Portuguese fleets hurl themselves at each other off the coast of Portugal resulting in the loss of more than 2 dozen ships.

    Current losses stand at:

    Royal Navy - 10H, 27L
    France - 17L
    Spain - 4H, 10L

    Russia - 6L
    Portugal - 3H, 8L
    Sweden - 3H, 6L
    Denmark - 6H, 6L
    Holland 6L

    Grand total: 112 vessels

    Blue - Coalition: 49 ships
    Red - French and Spanish/Allied: 48 ships
    Green - Russian/Russian Allied: 15 ships

    * made a correction to French losses. I missed 2L so have adjusted the totals

    • Due to unexpected results I will need a response from either the French or Spanish Admiralties about final movement of French/Spanish fleets. See message in your HQ.

        That was unexpected I was pretty sure this was the make or break turn for the game and these would be the results. To many dice had to break Englands way. btw why does nelson not get his plus one in blockades

        • Nelson helps get the wind gauge, not combat. That first shot helps win battles most of the time.

          Overall the loss ratio favoured the British depite losing 2 more ships than the French/Spanish. These were all close battles,... nothing is decided yet but it is quite exciting sea action.

          Coalition and French/Spanish Alliance naval losses are now almost equal. This is to Britain's advantage in the long run.

              Well,... we had an exciting naval phase, wot, wot?

              If there are no more Spanish naval moves we can move on to the Land Phase

              Russia is up first, then Turkey, Austria, Prussia, Great Britain, Spain, France

              • All Powers

                There are a number of 2 and 3 way wars going on but you folks have not given me any terms to set as defaults in case an enemy offers terms.

                For each power you are at war with you must:

                - tell me if you will accept conditional terms or not
                - pick from the B and C lists.

                Remember, the same terms cannot be chosen by two powers at the same time and some terms prevent choosing another (ie: a defeated power cannot be forced to remove both 3 corps and 2 fleets - it is one or the other).

                If you have allies make sure you discuss who will choose which terms so they do not conflict. In the case of a conflict the power with the highest political status gets that choice and the lower ranked power loses a pick.

                If you do not choose terms you may have to take whatever default the computer assigns - not always the best or logical choices.

                • Purist, couple questions after first moves in May`s land turn:
                  1. Amsterdam - 1 corps: force march move 309, Munster, Hanover, 284 - forage, loss TBA - what does it mean?
                  2. And how Alexander reached Freiburg? Russians have usually 3 movement points for infantry Corps and if I`m not mistaken then mountains should reduce movement for one square. Or I`m wrong?

                  Not that I complain, just want to understand

                    1) Probably To Be Announced.
                    2) I forced marched thus giving me 4 movement points, the mountain counted as 2 movement points (and took loses through lack of supplies because of it).

                    • Ahh, yes, forced marches. Wasn`t reading carefully and forgot about that. Thanks

                      • Russian TBA losses - I forgot to check the corps strength after the forced march. Its still there so some one survived but I will have to await the next chance I can access Russian stacks to check the strength.

                        • Spain reserves its right to finalize its land moves only after the Prussians have completed their moves.

                          • French moves next

                            Gibraltar and Corsica fall to Spain while Portugal falls to Britain. Wellingtons holds Masenna at Lisbon but suffers heavy losses for his victory.

                            France is up!!

                              I did not even know they invaded Corsica Wait I did not even know I owned Corisica

                              btw just generically we need a better understanding of how battles work

                              For example I had better troops better morale and outrolled him badly but still got hammered.

                              oh and he crossed a river

                              This is part of the game I never got. I usually did what Ex is doing load miltia up and just keep grinding on the other guy sooner or latter the guy spending money troops loses.

                              • No, I went around the River, used full movement to do so.
                                But, one more win like that and we're done for, 3 corps? My intell told me there were only two.
                                Funny how that works. Was trying to force them back into Lisbon to put the city in siege.
