Support question - Denmark

Postby Mpiggott » 23 Nov 2017, 05:13

There is an fleet in Denmark that is supported from fleet Baltic sea. If I want to move army Kiel into Denmark with sup from fleet north sea and fleet sweden, will I get Denmark?

I tried putting this into the order solver and it came up that supported unit has failed for some reason?

Order Resolutions

Baltic Sea SUPPORT Denmark to HOLD -> Supported unit has failed
Denmark HOLD -> Dislodged by 'a kie - den'

Kiel MOVE Denmark -> resolved
North Sea SUPPORT Kiel to Denmark -> resolved
Sweden SUPPORT Kiel to Denmark -> resolved

The attack succeeds, the defense fails. Which makes sense since 3>2. Are you getting something else?

What about this scenario?

Order History:
Denmark SUPPORT Norway to Sweden -> Supported unit has failed

Order Solver:
Norway MOVE Sweden -> resolved
Denmark SUPPORT Norway to Sweden -> resolved
Sweden HOLD -> Dislodged by 'a nwy - swe'

This must be a glitch. Can an admin help?

If you give a game number, users will look at the order history. I'll bet a lot of money there is no bug and you have missed something in the orders history...
