  • Hey folks,

    Have a quick question for you. I noticed that in PBEM games the attacker generally handles the casualty choices in combat for both players. However, in some cases, where multiple rounds of combat are involved, or in some tricky naval engagements, I can see that the defender would no doubt prefer the autonomy to make these important choices. How is this difficulty generally handled?

    Best,

    MIR


  • One other thing:

    Is there anything like ‘standard notation’ shorthand for A&A, as there is in chess?

    If so, is there a relevant link anyone could direct me to?

    Thanks in advance, MIR

    Is most of the information in this stickey irrelevant?

    Very likely.

    I had this exact same question so I searched the forums.  I thought I’d bump this rather than start a new thread.
    This seems like it could be a game losing factor in the naval battles he suggested.  Perhaps an opponent might choose to lose his carrier so that the fighters can fight one more round and then crash into the ocean, or perhaps he wants the opposite.  And what if you combat move into a submarine, how do you know if we wants to submerge it or sacrifice it and take down a ship.

    Even if the answers to these examples are obvious and I"m not aware, maybe noone would ever in their life sac a sub or something.  But surely there must be SOME situation where it is not appropriate for the attacker to choose casualties even if they do their best to remain unbiased.

    Sadly with PBEM or Forum play, the only way to ever handle such situation is to halt combat and ask the defender how he wants the battle to go. Generally the attacker uses his logic but when multiple choices arises, he needs to put the game on hold and ask the defender. However such decisions usually occur only 3-4 times per game
