Possible bug

Postby Betzlalel; » 03 Mar 2019, 19:49

11 hours to go in a retreat phase, and I'm being offered a move that I think is illegal, but which would be amazing if I could take it.

Relevant orders for the previous phase:

Germany: Army Gascony - Hold

France: Fleet Spain (n.c.) - Move -> Gascony

France: Army Brest - Support Spain (n.c.) -> Gascony

France also has units in Burgundy and Marseilles, so the website is showing available retreat options as France and Spain, but Spain is where the attack came from so that's an illegal move, isn't it?

Thank you for any help

The game allows you to do illegal moves much like you can on your normal orders. An illegal retreat results in a disband

Yep. You may choose to move illegally if you want, which is why you're being offered the option.

Doesn't the system warn you when you have entered an illegal retreat? I thought it told you you a trying to retreat to an embattled province, or something like that.
