After much thought and discussion, I have determined that the ruling stands and the final Persian order must be discarded as indicated above. Sorry ferdy0.

thank god I do most important orders first then. If I would have lost any of the other units I would have gone mad. I don't think It should be last order provided though, I think it should be an order of choice.

There's a very strong precedent for last order provided. Order of choice presents the difficulty of having seen everyone else's orders before choosing, which runs counterintuitive to the everything processes at once aspect of diplomacy. That leads us to order of choice before processing...which we essentially already have, by which order(s) we put last.

For what it is worth, I would recommend placing any hold orders last in line when you submit. It makes sure if you make a mistake that it will get peeled off.

Sorry I have delayed getting retreats out, they are imminent though.
