Re: Units are affected by our inability to pay their upkeep

This is a mystery to me based upon the information I can see. If I were to guess, and I often do so, I would say this force is not connected to your capital region. Maybe besieged, maybe just without a means to connect, not sure. You have plenty of resources to pay for upkeep, so not much to do if t...

Re: Historical Resource Placement?

I do not know if you played the old board game Gusher, but it seems resources are allocated in a similar manner. Regions have probability quotas which are 'seeded' when the game begins and when explorers enter. You do not get the same resource in the same region in each game, but resources are seede...

Re: Player Notes on Revolution Under Siege

My two cents worth = It is a better game for the Whites if the faction unite, even being played by a single White player. It is better history to have two White players each pursuing its faction's own goals. So Stauffenberg, yes if the goal is to play a game with equal chances for both sides to win,...

Re: Naval combat from blockaded ports.

Because the opposing naval force is not in the same regions (as is the besieging army), you can sortie. If you wish to take some land elements, you must use the 'evade combat' option, green/green is not necessary but can be useful for the naval action. You will likely retreat back into the besieged ...

I have given some thought to the question you raise. My response is this is not the mad world of 1914 when alliances were meaningful, honored; almost; and deadly consequences resulted. Treaties are a statement of intent, not legally binding. This was even more true in ancient days than is true today...

Re: Multi-player question

What is supposed to happen is the missing player(s) turn is saved, marked as inactive, and the game proceeds.
If this happens twice in succession the player is dropped.
Seems from your note, this is not what happened.

Don't panic. Find someplace to expand. Keep up the faith, this is actually important as your fanaticism is a bonus. It is a tough faction, many are, but the tough ones are fun if you are not wedded to winning.

Re: Is this still the Best Strategy Guide around for PON ?

Probably the AARs in this forum are the best strategy guides. There are several focus upon economics, but a few focus upon the battles. Do you play other AGEOD titles? If so, something like AJE or WIA are very similar militarily.

Yes, as an extreme test, make sure no subordinate corps commanders are in these regions, place everyone on green/green with evade combat. This should work for sure.

The easy way is to make this units subordinate to a different army. March to the sound of guns primarily moves armies and their subordinate corps, not unattached units.

I really know nothing about cohesion. Maybe someone else does.
This is a shipping box, so any transports operate as merchant ships. Usually Russia and Germany lack merchants ships to place here.
