Playing as Austria
How does one do this? I've looked on the tubes and most of what i've seen is can be summarized by:
1) make allies and hope you don't get back stabbed
2) try to survive past 1903.

Why cant I build in Sweden?
in Game 18212, I have the option to build 2 units, that is correct.
I control the SC in Sweden, but I get no option to build there, an army nor a fleet. I can build elsewhere, but Sweden does not appear as an option.

I am not complaining to the Admins as if this is a big or unfair... I am new to the game, so I am asking anyone if this might be part of the rules and there might be a valid reason this is not allowed?

Interesting Game-Testicle Festival
http://www.webdiplomacy.net/board.php?gameID=16852
Just finished this game and thought it might interest people. Italy ended up with a pretty good stalemate line against England and France, but with enough free SCs within the line to win. It became a race between Italy trying to gobble up the last few SCs before England and France could break through.

Can you support a enemy's attack on your own troops?
If I remember correctly, if you make a supported attack on your own troops it will fail. But what if you use one of your units to support the enemy's attack on one of your troops? Will that support be effective?
hellalt (76 D)
05 Jan 10 UTC
no, you can't have one of your units dislodged in any possible way
abgemacht (428 D (G))
05 Jan 10 UTC
You may order the support, but it will not work.
Sendler (666 D)
05 Jan 10 UTC
if its an attack against your own troop, no
but you can support another troop when he is bouncing against his own

like if he bounces in ven with tyr and trieste to defend
you could support him with one of your units so one of his units moves to ven
a very great move if used correctly, you opponent wont expect it, i have never seen it used here
msmth82 (579 D)
05 Jan 10 UTC
So the only way that I could have one of my troops commit suicide would be if I could find a way for the enemy to make an attack all by himself? Too bad, I was hoping I could kill one of my own troops ( so I could rebuild )
Sendler (666 D)
05 Jan 10 UTC
yes you have to get your ally to do it for you if you have one
orathaic (1004 D (B))

I think the rule only prevents you from forcing you to retreat, however if you support another player's unit into a territory containing one of your units, that two in will bounce any other two in.

So you can use it defensively against a third party - presumably while the unit in that territory is being used to attack/cut support given by someone...
Sendler (666 D)

@orathaic: sorry to say I did not understand your post, could you give an example
msmth82 (579 D)
05 Jan 10 UTC
I think he was meaning that you could make a supported move into territory occupied by one of your own units to prevent an enemy from making an equally supported move into that same territory while still leaving the one unit in the that territory available to preform other actions.

It sounds like an alternative to a support hold
Stukus (2126 D)
05 Jan 10 UTC
Sendler, I've used that before when Italy was bouncing with Rome and Trieste into Venice. It ended up letting France move unopposed into Rome. It made me smile. It's so much more fun than just a simple support move.

@stukus: do you have the link to the game?
figlesquidge (2131 D)

You can give a support against your own unit. However, if this support would lead to your unit being dislodged it is discounted. This means you can help set up a beleaguered garrison over a key or vulnerable unit you may possess.

I managed to find it Sendler. Although I forgot pretty much every single detail, wow. Check Autumn 03. I was France and Italy was bouncing. Austria was able to just walk into Venice.
orathaic (1004 D (B))
06 Jan 10 UTC
"It sounds like an alternative to a support hold " - yes, but you are using two units to defend a territory when three are available.

example:
(Italian) Army Tus sup (French) Army Pie - Ven
(Italian) Fleet Ven - Adr

let's assume we have
(Austrian) Fleet Adr - ?
(Austrian) Army Trieste -?
(Austrian) Fleet Gre - ?
and
(Italian) Fleet Ion hold.

This prevents Adr supporting Greece to Ionian sea (say) while if Austria tries
A Tri S F Adr - Ven

then he will bounce against the french army in venice.
if there was an Austrian army in Tyr then they would be able to support with a third unit into Ven, and you'd be better off having the units in Pie and Tus support Ven to hold.
i don't really get this... Stukus, were you allied with Austria?
Sendler (666 D)
06 Jan 10 UTC
@stukus: very nice! that should be used in schoolbooks, lol
@orathaic, i have to think it through, i have a vivid idea of what you mean, but its still confusing to me
Stukus (2126 D)
06 Jan 10 UTC
@yourBALDneighbor, no, not really. I just didn't like Italy, and since Italy was trying to attack me, anything that weakened him helped me. I think I managed to do well that game, bouncing off Germany and Italy until England came and dominated me... :(
