One Quick Question

Post by ted on Thu Apr 16, 2009 9:42 am

Hi all.

The rulebook says that email turns should be sent the day before the deadline date.

Is that a strict rule?or can I email my turn in a few days before?

Cheers.

Another quick question.

Post by jamesbond007 on Thu Apr 16, 2009 1:20 pm

In the 1700's did the fleet Admirals postion themselves in the middle of the fleet, or were tactics different then? With regards to turns. I think how early you are does not matter, but if your reply is not on deadline date at the latest, you miss your turn. I always send mine in about three days before the deadline. You never know with the post these days. It is a bit risky waiting until the last possible second. The crew at Agema would appreciate a day or two as well.

It is up to you where you position your admiral in the fleet, however in the middle is ok, but with advanced signalling he can be placed any where. Admirals usually led from the from as the biggest SOL led or was at the rear to enable the fleet to withstand a pounding.

There is a tactic called doubling up... google to find more on that.... I am giving away too many of my secrets on here study

quick quesetion

Post by jamesbond007 on Thu Apr 16, 2009 7:26 pm

You are still too good for us Terry. Good advice on tactics, thanks. I am starting to think that as France, i need another twenty mc orders a turn, so much to do and arrange.

It takes time to complete the process. When I inhereited one of my present charges it was in shambles. I have worked at it for about three game years to get it to some sort of organization and uniformity. It will most certainly take quite a bit of time and effort.

Further, remember that nothing in this game happens to fast by design. Richard has mechanisms built in to slow things down so to speak. Besides, I like a weak France! king

when I took over Russia I was at war with the Shah, lost constantinople (which Russia had captured some 10 years earlier) most of my troops where not active and my fleet from the Med was en route to St Petersburg! Evil or Very Mad

However by careful bluff and some expidenant means plus upping my spending I have 4 yes 4 military orders now and was able to get Constantinople back plus all of Greece and Morea.

My economy is now steady, I have so much money I cant spend it all! My forces are huge and my Honour is at 82!

That has took me 4 game years, and I am on course for the 5 year plan I set my self. My next 5 year is currently being assesed and colated ready for implimentation. study

My Honour Score never seems to move much. I shall have to give it something to move I assume, but what to do? I think this is the question I have asked you the most Terry. I just don't seem to be able to break the mold on this one.

remember there are some countries that you just cant get any honour points off except by being anti them. Have a look at your country historically and see what they did in real life.

Remember building attending and giving your patronism too (supporting) helps as well.

Do visits around europe to the capitals of the other countries and give presents and hold balls etc as well.

Post by jamesbond007 on Fri Apr 17, 2009 10:05 am

I am in the same boat as the Rev. Honour is a struggle. As i was told, Argueing and going up against France will gain you honour, the downside is it may gain you a war as well.A shame you are not England in game six. Then we could have a go at each other verbally all day, and gain homour points together, without going to war with each other. I have just sold England my rights to Newfoundland, and gained money plus the Isle of Ushant. This deal cost man honour point. Although England sent me a platoon fireing mission as well. So you see, a war with England to gain honour is not an option.

France in the game I am in has been inactive for some time and certainly does not desire a war with England at this time due to the size of the naval and land arms. I just have not found and enemy to face down to a certain extent other than the most recent matter in Flanders. However, not a shot was fired in anger and the matter was peacefully resolved with my friend and ally The Kaiser, working with us.

We shall see, I have matters in hand and will likely begin making some moves!

France was active a few turns ago, but has been very quiet. You might ask Richard what is going on over there.

I play France in game six, and have done from the start. We are now in 1705. I think the Revvaughan is talking about game three.

So, Sweden should be anti-Russia?

I'm not so sure about this-though as your England maybe I'm bias Smile In Game 6 my honour is going quite well, despite being nice to France Wink, giving a colony to Scotland and land back to an Indian prince. In Game 3, I am Denmark and get on very well with Sweden (so no Northern War and very unhistoric) and my honour is in the high 60s

In the rules it states honour increases if you behave in a gentlemanly manner, carry out acts of piety and charity. I've always tried to behave like that and it does work. Of course there are specific exceptions (pirates for one) but I can assure you that there is no indication that as England I would be better off being anti-French in regards honour.
