Re: Shared wins?

In diplomacy, if one person wins, everyone else loses. But there are other reasons to throw a solo to someone else. E.g. you're gonna die anyway, all the other players piss you off, etc.

Re: Can I use the same convoy for two armies?

I'll add that you need to order your fleet to convoy the army, in addition to ordering the army to move.

Re: suggstion

be aware that there are some graphical bugs on the preview map. mostly involving coasts. e.g. Swe supports StP south coast to GoB; StP to GoB; will show a grey line indicating that the support is not accompanied by the corresponding move.

Re: The Anti-France Meta
