  • I oppose the exclusion of the loaning of troops ban as it it screws England

    England is designed to supplement its allies forces to increase there morale not fight battles on there own.

    It also designed to bank rolls its allies armies while in the field with English forces. As I did in Spain.

    And some countries such as spain and Turkey are designed to have forces loaned to them to improve there chances in battle

    I would propose that countries which are not part of the war not be able to be loaned to attack neutral parties in land battles

    such as Nap attacking wellington at Valencia. the gm can control that.


    also the only way to possibly defeat the English fleet is through combining of fleets

    Can you defeat the French fleet on your own Can anyone now. without the ability to loan fleet your ensuring a French victory in every sea battle.

    • Well actually you don`t have to beat someone superior at sea in naval battles as naval power can`t force other country to fight at sea which is different from land battles. Except the situation when port is blockaded and assaulted from the land in the same time.
      So even with smaller forces pinpoint attack tactics can be chosen by weaker country as we did with Exo against Britain. Pinpoint attacks and naval building melted RN force and shifted balance towards France and Spain.
      Speaking about loaning troops - if countries are at war I don`t see the objections to such loan as it would be wrong also historically. But anyway we are 6 players and I`ll respect decision of majority.

      BTW - French economic numbers. If there were full reparations from Britain in next (this) economic phase then I don`t see where they are noted? Also no income/manpower from the provinces that France gained from Ottoman Empire.

          • Looks like we split the remaining funds and left the larger sum, Income, alone.

                The current political status

                Spain and France share the stage for most dominant powers in Europe while the Turks and British struggle with economic dislocation and political unrest roiling their economies.

                Spain and Greta Britain fight for second place

                Turkey staggers forward while holding fourth place
                Prussia challenges from the back of the pack.

                  When I looked at first at the numbers there was no such line if I`m not mistaken.
                  Still in Conquered states nothing about Serbia, Bulgaria and Walachia. Therefore I asked. It`s minor issue but still wanted to clarify.

                    The Outremer province are part of you general income from home and conquered states, so is their manpower. The three provinces do not provide much to the French but they will be missed by the poor Turks.

                          no it quite decisive it kind of like looking at polls the overall numbers don't matter at this point look at the numbers below them and you can see only three countries are in the game and me and you are not them.

                            Today at Tuileries Palace Emperor Napoleon I announced that before Christmas new ceremony will be held in Paris for citizens and victorious troops returning from Spain and Balkans. Ceremony will mark the beginning of new age of peace and prosperity for French Empire.

                            In the mean time in other theaters of war - lots of maneuvering on the Russian Western border. "Strange war" in Dalmatia continues.
