Was running through some moves on Realpolitik. Why is a fleet in GoB allowed to support a fleet from Norway to St. Pete(NC)? The GoB fleet doesnt touch the North Coast. Is there a different reason for why this is allowed?
support is given to the province, not the coast - if your unit could move to the province it self, it can support a hold in that province, or a move to any coast in that promise.
The only time a coast affects a fleets ability to give support, is if the supporting fleet is parked at a coast - a fleet in STP NC would not be able to move to GoB, and thus cannot support for instance Bal-GoB, but GoB can support hold STP NC.
Because where supporting is concerned, the only factor that is relevant is whether the unit can move into the territory. Because GoB can move to St. Petersburg, it can support a move there, regardless of coasts.
In a way it makes sense when you consider that supporting is supposed to reference having an influence on the territory to help its conquering. Being on the south coast does not prevent GoB from having an influence on St. Petersburg as a whole, right?
Hi, Sorry to everyone in the Second Series of my informal gunboat games but could everyone please vote cancel? As per the discussion led by Babak and ulcabb in threadID=803223, it has been decided that all the games must be cancelled and the tournament restarted.
Sorry about this inconvenience. Thank you for your continued understanding through President Eden and Mr. Crispy's replacements.
First Drugs...Then Terror...Now We Have A War On...Christmas??? (Really???)
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Tks1vqfvO9I&feature=related Jon Stewart--as usual, very funny, very on-point...10/10. Bill O's response: "Well obviously Mr. Stewart is going to Hell..." ...0, fail. But besides all that--does anyone here actually buy this "War on Xmas?" I mean...really? As Stewart says in the vid..."We can't win!"
To Celebrate The End of the Semester...Abortions! Atheists! Heaven! OH MY!
Sorry, I just had to share this...amazing response to that assertion by the Christian fellow... And you know, I've actually wondered about that before, what you do about aborted babies if you're Christian...Dante sticks them in Hell--albeit not to badly--but still...if you agree with the black gentleman...well...how do you justify opposing abortion on PURELY THEOLOGICAL GROUNDS (secular ethics, that's another matter.)
Well, all my friends like Doctor who, so I've taken to watching it...and a friend told me DW was still in B&W in 1966...while Kirk was fighting that hilariously-rubber-suited Gorn in color already? On the other side of the coin...we seem to borrow some TV shows and ideas from Across the Pond...why is the BBC behind tech-wise and US TV behind "idea-wise?" (Are we...or is this just me?)
