A counter to the counter of a support...

#1 Post by Wolgeshafx » Wed Feb 12, 2020 2:37 pm

Hello,

First time player in a game of other first timers playing Modern II. A specific scenario did not turn out as it was expected to.

The relevant orders were as follows...

Russia:
The fleet at Georgia move to Ankara. (fail)

Turkey:
The army at Bulgaria hold.
The fleet at Ankara move to Western Black Sea. (fail)

Ukraine:
The army at Rumania move to Bulgaria. (fail)
The fleet at Western Black Sea support move to Bulgaria from Rumania. (fail)


The expectation was that Russia moving to Ankara would take priority and prevent it from disrupting Ukraine's fleet supporting Ukraine's army moving into Bulgaria. However, Ankara's move into Ukraine's fleet took priority and cut Ukraine's support and so Rumania bounced off the Turkish army sitting in Bulgaria.

Is the desired outcome for Ukraine and Russia possible where Ankara is preventing from interfering with Ukraine's moves?

Thanks in advance for any advice.

If Rumania supports the move from Western Black Sea to Bulgaria, Ankara cannot cut that support.

Other than that, everything worked as intended.

This makes much more sense now. Thank you for your speedy answer.
