    Am I the only one who is irritated by my land units dealing with zone of control / flanking issues from naval units?

    ESPECIALLY melee naval units?

    I can see ranged naval units being able to exert flanking bonuses - not so sure about zone of control.

    But melee naval units should have no effect on land units. It's just silly.

    I was thinking of it the other way around. Its silly (but effective) to use units to flank ships and exert zoc on them so they are stuck In a big naval battle you can surround opposing fleets this way and trap them. They then have to waste a shot on your land units and watch as your ships then protect the units and get a free attack on them in return

    I don't think it should be changed. At war one of the first goals should be to destroy the enemy fleet. War should be more difficult without naval supremacy.
