Stories of a Convoyed Army

Postby Crisu » 24 Nov 2008, 06:10

1. What conversations do you think a convoyed army has while it is being convoyed?

2. What about convoys that multiple players support? If an army in Turkey is convoyed with the help of Italy to France, what conversations would it have with the Italian fleets along the way?

3. How utterly disappointing would it be to arrive at your destination only to standoff/bounce ... and have to go ALL the way back to where you came from? How many months does that take?

4. What exactly is a fleet and an army anyway? I find it hilarious in a game using the tank/submarine icons and a sub convoys a tank from place to place.
I like gunboat. I dislike public-press. I'm too busy for live games, sorry. :(

"(Something in Turkish)" "(Something in Italian)" "(Something in Turkish)" "(Something in Italian)"

Takes half a year. If you leave in the spring, you probably won't get back till the fall.

Super submarines, they are. Some can even fly. But that's not shown on the map.
