  1. It’s more likely that a couple people with big sticks met up and proceeded to beat each other over the head. 😈
  2. has anyone EVER had a INT order fail when the attacking force was a FULL 25 groups of bombers and a FULL group of escorts? I was told this was a rare occurrence and wanted to know just how rare.
  3. The fighting in the middle east has become very interesting indeed. We 🐑 aren’t quite dead yet baaaaahaha😁
  4. Probably not just you. I suspect Draco is much more violent then andromeda ever was and the resulting multitude of both space and ground combat are bound to slow things up just a bit. Someone once told me that a huge space battle in Andromeda once took almost a whole day to run. 👀
  5. The declaration of war can get a bit problematic when your enemy is in what I would call an extended TA group, as morale will take a bigger, maybe disproportionate hit if you have to declare war on 5 or maybe even more countries, just to be sure you can conquer a province. I think there are three possible solutions for this: This is what the issue really is. With players being able to join in groups these days the probability is high that there will be these extended TA groups. losing 200 or more morale early on is a hit most players wont be able to take and could easily lead to
  6. In that very same game. We destroyed a whole Iraqi SS army and his JU88’s as well as a whole group of escorts and that led to his drop and all of his allies which we didn’t even touch yet. 🙁 fast forward to 103 and nearly the same group of players all dropped when me and my allies seized the western side of the Dardanelles. That left nations like TJ and UAE with zero players to fight almost from the beginning of the game. Double 🙁🙁
  7. Actually no. Hamish was right. There are 12 divisions in the city so 6 more could squeeze in and the rest surrender. Must be a funny site. Ok you 11 divisions must die so the rest of us can live. 🤣.
  8. You are 100% correct. Although I couldn’t find it in the addendum. Is the rule somewhere here on the forums?
  9. Ok here goes A 12 division army group is holed up in a city. In the surrounding province another army group belonging to the nation occupying the city is attacked and has no retreat option except the city. The only province available for retreat was conveniently captured by the attacking army just prior. so A. 17 division army surrenders or B. 17 division army retreats to city and merges with the 12 division force
  10. Switzerland will most likely be the best choice for a beginning player. It only has 4 initial territories so it’s AIC network is extremely simple. 3 of those are mountain provinces and one is hills making it much easier to defend .it’s not without issues however. It has no coal or petroleum resources and no food producing territories. It will need to acquire them by force of arms or have allies willing to supply them. it also has no need for a navy at the early stages of the game eliminating that aspect of the game.
  11. And to think some of those very allies were enemies at first!! 🐑😁
  12. That is indeed the issue. If there was a group that did set that up for whatever reason it would require multiple DW’s on many different nations per the SOP of DW on all the TA’s of your enemies. in other news The 🐑 molesters look to have turned tail and ran. Not without causing some damage in some lost economic output though. This will be quickly corrected baaaaaaahahhaha 😁.
  13. You don’t have to listen to it yes? Just ignore it if you don’t like it. If I see something I say something that’s just me. negative vibes?? Using a phrase from a famous person I have to say. “Come on Man!”
  14. Perhaps we have been extremely unfortunate with those INT’s. It’s been known to happen. 😁
  15. Aren’t going so well? For who? Us? You obviously have been looking at the wrong turns. There will soon be many dead Egyptian divisions in what seems to be a victory for them. Baaaaahahabaha. And those Libyans aren’t doing to well either. There has been no defeat here so that sore loser comment is a bit premature. At least I didn’t bow out from 102 when my airbases got absolutely smashed in Turkey. I recall something about massed airstrikes against some Baltic States divisions that totally destroyed them. After that CR was left holding the bag. Would that be considered a sore loser as we
  16. The reason I say it’s gamey is that this order is impossible to counter and for some reason one of the techs was left without a unit that could exploit it. There are many examples of ‘fictitious’ units in the game for balance but this was overlooked it seems. Apparently those TR units with an actual TAS rating can bypass all FC’s or INT’s. This was obviously not intended but it’s part of the game and as such will enable these units to gather critical intel unimpeded. Seems like an exploit to me.
  17. Acknowledging that you abuse a certain aspect of the rules is ok in my book. However considering the amount of tactical recons( also an abused aspect of the game) that your side was doing, abusing a certain order seemed the intent all along. That isn’t so ok I’m my book. There are many issues in Victory whose rules are pretty much static ( last overhaul back in 1995?) that players have learned to ‘game’. Such is life really but until Russ can come up with a Victory II that addresses the short comings of the current rules I suggest a bit less chicanery and more strategic and tactical forethou
  18. Did I take a hostile stance Ninja? Is discussing something that is obviously being used in a way not originally intended( per the programmer himself) whining?? You need to grow up yourself and learn to talk about things rather then flaming others or besmirching when they have a differing point of view. I personally couldn’t give a rats behind what you think but am still willing to discuss matters relating to making victory a more enjoyable experience for all
  19. I think a few on the list may have been unjustly accused and are on there due to ‘guilt by association’ 😁. you are correct though Predator and MarklenX the CL becomes meaningless if you DW on all your enemies TA’s but if there are interlocking TA’s then the list of DW’s Becomes excessive especially in the early game. That was the point that is trying to be made and I agree with it. for example Lets say Ireland is TA’ed to GB USA Canada and Morocco but Morocco is TA’ed with Ireland GB USA and Algeria. GB is TA’ed to Ireland USA Canada and Norway. You see the pattern
  20. I know many of you remember the dreaded Terror attack option of the OMN CB order. After relentless abuse this was removed as was the morale loss from such attacks. enter another way to indirectly drop the morale of a nation using the CL order. Using interconnected Groups of TA’s a territory can be ceded like a hot potato forcing the target nation to declare war on all tentacles of the alliance. A clear abuse of the CL order and something that should be addressed. Maybe remove the morale loss for Declaring war? Or maybe increase the morale loss of the cede order significantly when the
  21. This information is confirmed. We did indeed find another HW only 4 jumps away ( one way) and the return trip was only 6 jumps also one way.
  22. A new ‘coral reef’ was just started in the Aegean Sea. Thank you to the Italian Navy for supplying the raw materials. 😁
  23. That sFair MarklenX In this case Persia actually believed that cedeing territory to his TA to open a path for one of his TA’s to attack the TA’s of his ally was going to be just fine by the allies he just penned a deal with. Mmmmhmmm sounds like someone is smokin some good grass. He needs to tell us where he got it cause we 🐑 need some of that stuff 🤣. so I think this would be considered a quasi backstab as he is stabbing a TA of an ally of his in the back. My problem is that this was their plan as soon as his neighbors offered an alliance. Hey I have an idea!! Maybe my
  24. Agreed. Like I said we 🐑 don’t get mad ....... you know the rest😈
