Ah! That's a useful map. What do the Triforce Symbols mean, though.

Then I agree with Egann. Defend DS wisely (i.e. make it a bad idea to attack it, but don't let it be the only priority), and keep taking territory to the south.

We DO need to take the north as soon as we can, though, unless their troop distribution changes dramatically.

The triforce symbols are the spacer indicating that the number of battalions is next

So, 250*triforce*3 would mean three battalions of 250 each for a total number of 750 troops. If we've taken a battalion's numbers down, I put that individual battalion's numbers below. So, if the aforementioned troop had been attacked and one of the battalions had lost fifty men, on the map it would look like

250*triforce*2
200

Make sense?

Gonna go ahead and post orders.

Sounds good. Also, I just want to say that it is good to be back in business.

Holy. What the hell happened? We did almost nothing to them.
At least we know the name of the game now. Attack like crazy. That first attack the attackers get is huge.

IF there's anything left, attack with Fuji (to spring the trap) on any division, then hit Selena with Chik. If Fuji can't attack (wasted AP or no troops left) then we take it like a man and rely on that wall.

I say we just attack them. Considering they destroyed our forces without taking pretty much any deaths, it stands to reason we should be able to do the same if we attack first.

We got hammered pretty bad, going ahead and attacking again is just rash. We need a plan, not just "lure Lena in and finish with Chik." That plan will kill off both our queens, and that's if we are lucky.

Well, look at what happened. They attacked first and destroyed our forces without a problem. Doesn't it stand to reason it will be the other way around if we attack first?

Super busy for the next couple days, so I'm not going to be around much. Elven and Steve, you are both authorized to act on my behalf.

Ffffffffff. Alright, we need a plan of action fast, preferably by tonight. We definitely need to stop them from attacking our forces. I say we take everyone on the border and attack a unit they are good with, and perhaps build defenses with those that don't attack.

It's just my gut reaction that we should hit them with an expendable division to defuse their defensive trap, then hit Selena with Chick, then Steel. Chick and Steel have equipment MUCH better and Selena won't have any defenses. It will pull Selena's unit down to an average/ cron member size and that will REALLY take the wind out of their offensive campaigns for the next few turns.

I say we hit them with every expendable division. I'm thinking sending pikes after Selena, at least at first to weaken her. Then we'll still have Chik and Steel at pretty much full power to wipe the rest of the map.

Attacking with everything is NOT a good idea. We have all this map, and more people, so why would we let them fight a one-front war?

Fall back to Lake Province, quit whining and conquer Labrynna or Tal Tal Heights, and have someone over in the east take Zora's Isthmus. Everyone else get to Lake Province so we have more options next round.

If we MUST counter-attack, then go with Egann's idea.

We need to attack because so far, whoever has attacked first has one, with the sole exception of Chik. Their forces are gathered in one place, if we can hit them had now we can decimate most of their forces. Just giving them territory isn't going to help.

I've come to realize that helping plan battle strategies is difficult when I can't find the goddamn map. I recall Steve saying:

Ah! That's a useful map. What do the Triforce Symbols mean, though.

But I have yet to actually find it in any of the war-related threads. Am I overlooking something? In any case, help please?

The reason I'm obsessing over this is because I would like a map with the scouted provinces listed, as I'm noticing Calatia has their backs turned to Subrosia Continent at the moment and this might be our best chance to take more mountains.

Failing that, we might want to set up some fortifications at Diamons Steppe since the enemy troop count is roughly twice ours.

Yeah, I'm just throwing ideas out there. Like I said, can't plan effectively without an up-to-date (and complete) map.

Scouting report map has not been updated in a couple weeks due to my move. I'm hoping to get that updated and stuff next week.
