Can you choose NOT to disrupt Convoys?


  • Liaison TripleA '11 '10

    Situation:

    England is under siege, and the capital is about to fall.  There are axis ships off the coat of England in convoy zones.

    Can the Germans -choose- not to disrupte this?  Or is it a fait accompli?

    I get that it would make sense that the germans simply would not sink passing merchant ships.  However, perhaps one could also argue that because their is a blockade, the resources simply do not get sent.

    The premise here that the more IPCs that england earns on its turn, means the more IPCs that Germany will get on the possible capture.



  • I could see it being an optional house rule that favors the axis.  Japan could do a similar thing when about to capture India.

    We had this discussion here:

    Result: If the Germans decide to move their ships in their CM or NCM into a convoy raid zone they decide to disrupt convoys in the Collect Income Phase of UK.

    move the ships out of the convoy zone before England’s turn.  Done.  😛  If you had to attack, well, your commanders are overly zealous, either reward them or don’t, but the merchants are sunk.  :evil:

    Yeah, I think I’m siding with Cmdr Jennifer on this one.



  • yeah, what captain of an oiltanker would travel without an escort to london hoping the germans would just let him pass?

    and would the german captain really let him pass?
