Your original post attempted to make a \"lifelike\" comparison between SOI mechanics and troop activity
and I considered this an inane distraction to the main argument which was over knowledge and intent.
Springdales intent was to occupy the location long enough to be flagged, I think we can all agree on that.
As you clearly point out only 5 men were needed to do this.
As you point out any redeployments could have been done accomodating this requirement - had it been known!
My point still stands it wasn't clear in the help file and if our Generals had been aware they would not
done anything to cause a delay to the flagging.
To my mind the intent was clear and it would not have been unjust to raise the flag and clarify the help file.
However as it is turning out, having our legions wait to gain influence seems to be providing our Generals and troops
amusing battle practice and the ooportunity to further weaken the pirate armies.
