    Yeah, so that's the situation. We are going to attack GWT. Poly is going to go for the Forbidden Palace area, we are heading for Leonardo's Workshop.

    Here's a pic on our possible route.

    Any good plan has a backup.
    What if you meet a GWT fleet which blocks us ? What it GWT has set up a coastal defense force, preventing landings ?

    I doubt both. They think we are weak, I think.


    Dunno about the coastal force... if that happens, we'll see then. Depends a lot on situation. Any ideas?

    Are we going to have any defending ships to move along with the transports?

    Yes, I think that we need to know whether or not we are going to do this in case we meet GWT along the way :lol:

    I bet both GCA and GWT have naval forces floating around somewhere. They know we don't like them. They know we are coming. If I were GWT, I would defend myself with naval forces as well as keeping some cavalry type units in my territory. GCA has galleys, I'm sure of it. Where? I don't know.

    The question is what would you guys do if you were GWT/ GCA? Then you can carry out your plans for invasion.

    If I were them I think I'd be expecting a full frontal attack... it's better that we sneak around more :confused:

    I think they think we are weak. That's how their attitude has been so far, and it has so far always been Ply who has been acting in the war, etc. Poly is the worse enemy for them, they'll suspect that more.

    What group are we and why are there two red lines? At what point do we declare war?

    The red lines are just where the ships will go. I see there is a lot of questions here, I'll try to answer some of them

    About a defending naval force and escort: GWT and GCA does not have Caravels! We will be getting them just in time for the invasion. There are no other ships availible, and all the Caravels will be loaded full.

    Will the invasion force be ready in time? I believe so. If people look at my budgets they should see that we have 4 Galleys and almost 11 Riders ready by now. The last spot should be filled with a Musketman (upgrade a Pike I suppose. Right now I'm concerned if my budgets are correct. I'm not on my computer and I don't have internet anymore, so I can't check).

    Which group are we? In the second post we are the CFC groups. But we don't have enough forces for both I'm afraid. The picture in the first post shows two POSSIBLE routes for us to go. Apolyton will attack GWT from the west.

    But as I just said, I do no longer have internet, and will be unable to play the saves or participate in the game very much atm. Ankka, talk with E_T so we know what is going on.

    Cheetah out.

    Ok. I got my old ISDN connection back for now.
    So I will be able to check in here a couple of times each day I guess.
    But I won't be particularily active.

    I agree. But we need to decied what is more important. Leo's or the Road, I think Leo's becuase once GWT sees that APO is attacking they will start to upgrade weak units than building the full units. Can somone cheak the map if they have unconectable and reconectable resorces?

    I also think that we need more time between the APO landing and the CFC landing, giving enough time for GWT to divide there forces.

    Sounds good, but I doubt Poly will agree with it.

    We will be attacking in the middle of their Empire! Most of their armies are believed to be in the southern part fighting CGN. When Apolyton attack they will probably try to move their forces up north to defend their cities. The more we wait after polys landing, the more forces we will meet when we land.

    Idealy we will have to land the same turn as Apolyton I think.

    It would also be nice to cut the roads so it will take them longer to move their forces north. But I don't see how we have enough forces to both take out Leo's and the road. :(

    I'd say Leo's Workshop. A loss of such an important wonder will also give us a psychological victory.

    If this was in Real Life, I'd agree. But as it is the game, I'd say the roads
