Correct - though in this case Victory is 33 of the 64 SCs.

It would be no different than you putting an Army on that SC - except with an A there you would actually take custody of the SC and could generate a Build. With a W, you blockade the enemy from its use, but do not really gain the use for yourself. In a pinch, yes it is a tactic which may come in handy...

Sanguinem gave a good summary reasoning for the use of Wings - to increase naval power for nations with only 1 port for example, or to build units for use early in naval conflict and later to be used for land conflict.

I would not expect a majority of the units to be Wings...

Thanks, because on the map/rules linked, fleets were not used.

I think you have 10 UpQuark, so put me down for reserve please (to play if there's a space)

Well, the game is very close to a conclusion, but thanks for your offer.

Keep your eyes on the "Forum Games Looking for Players" forum for upcoming new games.
