    Hey wait, question about retreating. For retreats, can the units retreat to any unoccupied space that isn't their enemies, or can they retreat to just their territory? Or are they destroyed if they are overpowered?

    ^They can't retreat to occupied enemy space.

    Definition of occupied enemy space:

    1. Original country spaces/provinces that are within the colored (white, yellow, green, etc) edge.
    For example: Any Russian province (warsaw, ukraine, moscow, etc) is enemy space to any other country.

    If Russian units are all completely destroyed, then that provinces are no longer occupied.

    2. Unoccupied space that is taken over by any country after Fall round. This province that's taken over will be marked with hollow colored star.
    For example: Albania is unoccupied space, then Turkey takes it over by the end of Fall, it will be marked with Yellow hollow star. Italy or any other country will not be able to retreat there.

    3. occupied space that's taken over by other country.
    For example: Ukraine is Russian territory, but after the fall turn it is taken over by Turkey.
    It'll be Turkey's territory (marked with Yellow hollow star).
    Italy, Russia or any other country will not be able to retreat to that province.

    Is that good enough.

    On second thought, I'll give it another 24 hrs for Questions and other things.
    I need to modify the rules again anyway.

    No to what? >_>

    I think it is better this way, so the battle ends faster. I need time to clarify the rules so you guys are not confused and won't blame me later.

    So if the middle of the ocean applies, instead of being able to retreat to Tunisia the furtherest(from Roma) they would go would be Tyr sea, correct?

    IE
    From Roma(tyr) Fleet retreats - Napoli, Tuscany, Tyr sea would be its retreat options, right?

    and if someone atks a Fleet in the middle of the ocean and it has to retreat

    IE
    F.Spain and F.Gascony force a F.Mid Atlantic to retreat it could go - English Channel, Irish, N.Atlantic, Portugal, N.Africa

    I don't like the idea of retreating to the middle of the ocean, nowhere to repair and refit the military. Going out to sea is fine and all, but to retreat to it isn't that great of an idea. Makes it harder to kill units off, and it' gets less simple after that, lets keep it simple for now.

    considering how few seas there are,
    example between army and fleet retreat

    Vienna could retreat to Bohemia, Galicia, Tyrolia, Budapest, Trieste
    yet a fleet in Marse could only retreat to Spain, Piemonte, Lyon

    So armies cant attack a fleet thats in the middle of the ocean, big deal

    and retreats dont have to be after a fight, if i was in a warship and i see 100 warship in the horizon, id retreat LONG before the fight began

    lol

    But were talking about retreating after a battle. Fleets going to middle of the oceans, ok. Fleets fighting in the middle of the oceans, ok. Fleets retreating to the middle of the ocean after getting their ass kicked, no thanks, doesn't make sense. Your already damaged and now you go to a place where you can't even repair and refit. And I doubt you took the tools to repair your ships 100% with you to battle, including a makeshift dock since it'll slow you down in battle.

    If you look at naval battles in history. Most if not all naval wars have ended with the ships retreating to a port. They might have to cross a few oceans to get to their coast, but they did none the less. So I think ships should be allowed to just retreat to their territory after being defeated in battle, not retreat to open sea. Though if your territory is too far, I think you should just be destroyed. Your already damaged, don't have the tools to repair your ships, and your supplies are dwindling down to nothing. Defeated fleets shouldn't be expected to retreat to open sea an then all of a sudden fight as if they never lose.

    You do realize that the units arent real, right?
    making your arguement a bit void
