Forum rules
In addition to the general Forum Guidelines (see here: http://www.playdiplomacy.com/forum/view ... 30&t=15441), there are additional rules for posting in this forum.
1. Members should not refer directly to a specific situation in an active game. It is usually possible to provide an example of a similar situation elsewhere on the board.
2. It follows that links, images, game name and/or number should not be added to a post if the game is active.
3. Questions should only request rules be clarified and not request advice about how to resolve a situation.
4. When answering a question, members should restrict themselves to answering the question and not give advice on how to get around the situation.
Posts which break these rules will be subject to editing or removal; see here: http://www.playdiplomacy.com/forum/view ... 13&t=42845

I'm new and I have a question about attacking

When you're attacking a country, do you support your attacking unit from a country adjacent to that unit or from a country adjacent to the country you're trying to attack?

It seems like the latter makes more sense, but for some reason I'm thinking it's not the case.

Trust your intuition mate! A supporting unit must be adjacent to the attacked zone. Well, not only adjacent, it must be able to enter that zone itself. For example, an army can't support a fleet in a sea zone, even when that army is adjacent to that sea zone.
