    I played the save, and looked at the coast again, it was blocked. But in the red dot (IIRC) there was a Webringian galley. So, chances we get spotted are big. :undecide:

    But they won't see our 2 ships in the South, only one of the Northern ones, if I can count.

    Pune was empty, BTW. Too bad you can't attack there straight from ships! :mad: :cry:

    Also, I MMed a little and was able to shave one turn off the FP build, it's in 4 instead of the 5 it used to be. :)

    If the galley's fortified, then they've spotted the northern ship. Bad luck indeed! :(

    Are we coming back home? APO really thinks we should, and I agree. They also think that someone on GWt or GCA is cheating, but we can not prove it. They also predict a invasion soon, we need to be ready.

    I still like to use them as pirates. Make GWT and GCA use forces to stop us landing. Even if we (in our hearts) don't want to. Even if we have empty ships and have moved the army home. But keep them on the edge; stay unpredictable.

    It's not that bad that we're spotted; it might get them worrying and over-protective.

    Yes, let's leave the troops on the island and get 2 or 3 caravels going around while one or two transport units around greenland and the mainland to where they are needed at times.

    That is if the game continues as GWT and GCA are having serious problems with the hame and last post concerning this was made 3 days ago.

    Seriously, so little is happening we could say the game is clinically dead!

    An ad will do nothing at this point. And I think that it's premature to say that the game involving five major sites is dead after only a few weeks. When the problem is fixed, the game will get moving again. But it will most likely not retain as much interest as it has in the past.

    There is a serious PBEM bug in PTW which makes it unpossible to play forward. Go look at the UN. If someone knows a way to get around it, please inform us so we would be able to continue.

    Couldn't we just load a save from a turn ago? Or could we ask for help from our other forum members, one of them has to know what to do.

    There's a bug in at least PTW PBEM games that sometimes when going to diplo with someone else and opening the window, clicking on "active deals" and then trying to quit from there, the game crashes.

    This is with ending deals.

    And if you just let the deal end, and play on like it never happened, the game will in 20 turns be totally unsaveable by those teams.

    Currently the problem is between GCA and GWT.

    Then GCA should quit.

    Go tell them that at the UN.

    But I 100% agree.
