    So they didn't try to win in their own right ?

    You always need to keep England on your good side or be the one indispensable ally to France.

    England is the counter balance to France just concentrating it forces to the East.

    Because they end up having to garrison their western flank.
    Understand - but even if you did keep Britain on your "good" side, what prevented them from spending victory points to keep you from gaining 1 hundred % in the end ?

    Undying love ?

        BTW, speaking about game mechanics - so we continue with loaning troops as it is now or we agree to prevent involving of loaned troops in battles if original owner of the troops are not in war?
        As for me - I`m voting for first option as it`s in game mechanics.
        naw you should of attacked Austria when they isolated themselves from Russia and England. Just for easy win and vps but overall you managed to ensure your future victory pretty well. If you can make up for the lost vps from earlier turns. I am still not sure you can but time will tell.

        • Loaning of Troops

          In my view, because of the impending problem with the program if we continue to loan troops, I would say we stop.

          As I mentioned above, when the glitch strike it could be at a critical mioment (if not before).

          Take for example a French advance on Constantinople vs a combined Russo-Turk army. Imagine the great wailing and knashing of teeth should 3 Russian and 5 Turkish corps muster at Comstantinople to defend the capital but only the Turks ((potentially) with many low morale feudals) actually show up for the battle? The Russian guards, regulars and artillery might simply stand by even if they are at war.

          I leave the decision up to the players but all should understand the implications.

          Cheers.

          • Mediterranean Naval War Heats Up

            The British and her allied fleets set to against the Spanish and French allied fleet in the Meditaerranean.

            The battle of Area 744 went to the Spanish because neither fleet was likely to inflict more than one ship in losses. The transports came along so that they were not abandoned by their escorts and left vulnerable to Spanish or French attack and capture.

            The battle at Marseilles was more of a numbers game. While the shooting was about even the Spanish and Neapolitan fleets won by weight of numbers. The French can now join with the Spanish and Italians to make more mischief in the western Mediterranean.

            The two defeats are politically damaging to Britain but neither sides losses are crippling.

            Onwards.

              • Hmm, interesting results of battle 4 Frigates versus 6 Heavies. I wonder why this time it`s not a draw as previously we had in similar situations but Spanish victory? Not that I`m complaining, just asking out of curiosity.

                • Was it a naval battle

                  I don't recall that one. Defenders in naval battles that inflict equal casualties usually the naval battles with the usual pol pt changes, the defender holding his ground (sea) and with the attacker retreating.

                  In land battles a draw means both sides 'break' so there is no pol pt change but the defender retains the battle field and the attacker retreats.

                    Indeed. The 6H v 4L was a surprise at first but considering the RN (or Turks) would have needed the wind gauge to shoot first and a final DR 6 for 25% losses. This would sunk 2 Spanish frigates and resulted in no losses to the Turks.

                    With the Spanish firing first and scoring a kill, it became mathematically inpossible to sink more than one Spanish ship, so the defender would win.

                    Still sucks for the Turks to lose a ship of the line to frigates.

                        Yes indeed, we didn`t have draws in naval battles.

                        • As I keep saying I not sure any the Brits are getting any benefits in the naval battle.

                          If anything was to make me quit it would be the dice gods

                          I would look at my win loss ratio for all battles but I think I would be to depressed.

                          • One of the reasons I post the pics and do the AARs is so people see the results of the dice.

                            Not to worry, the + and - modifiers are always applied, however, a 1 + 2 for a final dr 3 still bites it when the other side rolls 4, 5 or 6.

                              • Ok,... gotta pause after the Cadiz battle as I have to go pick up the lady of the house from the airport.

                                Spain also asked a question that I have answer and await his response.
