One of the first “improvements” I made was an option to retreat. They can do so the next round after their initial announcement. However, any retreating forces that are hit by the attacking forces don’t receive a retaliation strike back, since they, literally, turned their back to their enemy.
I made up the same house rule too. It seems to work pretty well. It definitely adds to the realism.
@redrum I am very short on time as I am leaving until Sunday so please allow me to simply point you to this thread, where all of this has been discussed and clarified in depth:
We have a Github issue for this here: https://github.com/triplea-game/triplea/issues/4133
Thank you for your understanding.
Very generous timerover, I am happy to see a community like this. I would insist on paypal’ing you the money though. I should post some pix of us playing here. We just moved to a forward operating base and had another long game. I am 8-1 now, my 1st loss haha. The game was going downhill for Axis untill England made a mistake. He only left 1 tank, 1 inf and 1 arty there so I attacked with 2 inf, 3 planes and 1 battleship roll… I lost… game went downhill from there.
Thanks for the link on the coffee table…
