We were unsure of a few things, wondering if you fine gents would help us out.
1 - Tanks. Can someone explain tanks to us in detail? They attack at 2, defend at 1? They soak up hits? How? We didn’t understand tanks at all and haven’t used them yet due to this fact. Please help if you can.
2 - Army Movement. Example - I am playing as Germany, and I have let’s say 30Inf/20Art and I move them in to hostile French Territory which houses 30Inf/20Art themselves. We duke it out for that round (Germany attacks, France defends) and the territory becomes contested. After the initial attack, both Germany and France go down to, let’s say, 20Inf/10Art each. Now it’s France’s turn. #1 - Does France have the choice to NOT defend, and instead retreat all their armies and give the territory to Germany? That’s question #1. Now let’s say France decides to fight. After France defends, the armies are both split evenly at 10Inf/5Art. Territory is still contested. Next turn is Germany’s. #2 - As Germany, can I move my 10Inf/5Art closer to Paris? Or must my army stay in the territory until no more hostile units are in it?
3 - If I am Britain, can I muster let’s say 10 infantry in India, even thought the IPC value is only 4 for the territory?
4 - If I am Germany and just took Rome, the next round am I allowed to muster units in Rome, or do the Allies/CP ONLY muster units in their capital and NOT in captured capitals?
5 - Austria’s initial naval force…turn 1 of round 1. Can I move the cruiser, battleship and transport in to Italian territory (naturally, I will face a mine roll by my Italian enemy) in an effort to unload 2 infantry in, let’s say Naples and NOT fight the Italian cruiser, battleship and transport? Or must Austria fight the existing Italian boats if they decide to offload troops on to the Italian mainland?
Thanks fellas for the help.
