Hi all. Another new AJE player here, thanks to the Bundle Stars sale of some months ago. First off thanks to everyone on this forum for clarifying many important game details.
Now my first question. I've captured a strategic town and occupied it for several turns. But the tooltip and the F7 objectives list both show the town as not in my control:
What do I have to do to take control? Is this related to civilian loyalty? But loyalty is influenced by the number of strategic cities controlled, so that would just be circular logic? Is it to do with the fact that a neighbouring region is still controlled by an enemy faction?
