That's your best bet for sure.

Alternatively if the unit is fixed to a certain army then you'll either need to bring the HQ or unit closer to one another.

Perhaps being able to lay more mines would improve the model from what it currently is? Although that would mean increasing the stock available to all countries.

My understanding is that the fleet needs to be in a sea (non coastal) region and set to raid for a raid to occur with a random port near the sea region being chosen.

You can move to the sea region and, if set to raid, the fleet will raid that turn.

Why was the decision made not to follow the board game on this occassion? I am guessing there was an issue with it?

Is there anything to stop me moving the entire CP allied Japanese fleet and moving it to Kiel?

As there is nothing to strike at in the pacific of value it makes most sense to do this.

Although that doesnt make an awful lot of sense game wise :)

Grand Offensive Timing

I can see no benefit in pre-booking a Grand offensive. Accordingly I plan and launch them in the same turn. This doesnt seem historic or realistic, indeed it undermines what I believe is a well concieved and structured part of the game. But perhaps I am wrong? Is there any sort of benefit for pre-bo...

Shame about the seige guns, perhaps Leige can be toned down to re-capture the previous balance.

Anyway, if anyone is interesting in trying this scenario in MP just message me, most times of the day will work for me.

there is no realistic chance whatsoever for enemies of GB to conquer those in this conflict, so I consider those more like placeholder for British forces than actual areas. For example, in the boardgame, the Japanese conquests of the German Far East were an event-driven sequence, and the army only ...

I guess we will just have to agree to disagree on this. British and as such Entente naval supremacy was a given in that world, so it is correct in the frame of the game that only the UK receives NW penalty for being raided. IMHO.

15 lost battleships equals a huge NW penalty, especially if they were designated as losers of the battle. So its not an AI thing, it works as designed.
