The loser of any battle suffers Attrition to all surviving (including disrupted) Units/leaders prior to any rout resolution. Any Attrition losses suffered inflicted are assessed first to non-disrupted Units/leaders and contribute to possible rout conditions. This event can be voided by play of the Rally or Rear Guard events prior to the Attrition roll.

Message from France:
Final tally is 8 (66555555) to 4 (6666), so it is a rout by the French, with the French losing 4 units, the Russians losing 4 units and the Austrians losing 4 units.

Because it is a rout, the French have a chance to gain a resource on a 1-3 (Kutusov's rating). Here is the roll.
356 1/20/2019 1:14:00 AM 1807-1808 Russia Message Uhg. The unluckiness just doesn't stop.

Thank you Britain.It seems that to stem the route we will need each dice to be a 4 or higher, or doubles.
354 1/19/2019 9:48:00 PM 1807-1808 Britain Message Steve, you're killing us here!!!
By the way, if Steve declines my cards event I will just use it as my card for my upcoming impulse as CP unless another battle happens in which I will use it between now and my impulse.
I was hoping this would be quick as to avoid clunky-ness but oh well let's hope we get an answer tomorrow. No big deal!
353 1/19/2019 8:05:00 PM 1807-1808 France Message oh, the suspense!...
352 1/19/2019 5:43:00 PM 1807-1808 Britain Message You know what I'm going to wait and let Steve roll the dice

351 1/19/2019 5:43:00 PM 1807-1808 Britain Britain: Play Strategy card as Event #97: 3 / Hero
After seeing all Battle dice, select any one leader (with the owner's consent) who has not already been eliminated by a 6 to roll two dice to alter the battle outcome thus: 6 - eliminated enemy Unit, 5 - disrupt enemy Unit, 4 - rally friendly Unit, 1 - eliminate that leader, Doubles - may also void Rout.

Message from Britain:
Alright I don't see why Russia wouldn't let me take control of bagration considering otherwise they will lose a bunch of units
We play this for the event on bagration
350 1/19/2019 1:03:00 PM 1807-1808 Britain Message Can I play another response card?

348 1/19/2019 12:38:00 PM 1807-1808 Russia Message Regarding the Battle of Linz. I believe the Russian / Austrian army lost two units. The Russians will take these casualties. The Russians retreat to Munch and the Austrians retreat to Vienna.

346 1/19/2019 10:44:00 AM 1807-1808 France France: Play Strategy card as Event #904: 5 / Napoleon
If Napoleon is present, you may commit the Imperial Guard after seeing all other battle dice. Roll four more battle dice. Besides inflicting hits, rally a disrupted French Unit for each "4" rolled by the extra dice. Only Napoleon's presence at some point during the battle is required, not his well-being. RESERVE

Message from France:
Actually we're play this card.
345 1/19/2019 10:37:00 AM 1807-1808 France Message It is tied and we'll go to a second round unless anyone plays a card. We don't unless you do, in which case we might play one as well.

Britain plays this on the Davout/Napoleon French hoard attacking Linz
I believe I roll 16? Dice
339 1/19/2019 9:18:00 AM 1807-1808 France Message Russia/Austria would get 18 dice, do you want to reconsider retreating?

Keep in mind that only one leader gets to use their battle rating, the rest are all subordinates.

338 1/19/2019 8:47:00 AM 1807-1808 Russia Message Austrian interception successful. The French may roll the dice. I believe its 21 v. 20. Epic.

321 1/17/2019 9:23:00 PM 1807-1808 France Message You must not have gotten my email. The Rotterdam thing one a one time event due to the card Spain played earlier this turn.

And you'll have to redo Britain's turn as France just voided the card you just played, in other words you should simply discard it and play a different card.
320 1/17/2019 8:44:00 PM 1807-1808 Britain Britain: Play Strategy card as Operations #903: 6 / Admiralty
Britain draws two cards if its Fleets control six Zones at the start of its Impulse. Voided by Bey of Algiers or if Britain is a Subject Neutral. RESERVE

Message from Britain:
Alright France that card is extremely annoying.
Play for CP:
I become an ally with Sweden
I believe this leaves me with 1 CP
British channel->North Sea
North Atlantic -> British channel

I never got an answer on my Rotterdam question although I will double check the journal in a moment to make sure.

Britain's turn.
318 1/17/2019 6:16:00 PM 1807-1808 France Message Turkey, Spain, Sweden and Denmark all pass.
317 1/17/2019 6:15:00 PM 1807-1808 France Message Yes, it counts towards victory AND it counts towards the number of key duchies you hold when determining how many cards you receive.
316 1/17/2019 6:11:00 PM 1807-1808 Austria Message So that card that was just played is worth a victory point correct ?
315 1/17/2019 6:04:00 PM 1807-1808 Prussia Prussia: Play Strategy card as Event #1: 6 / The Emperor Commands
Increase this nation's Keys by one by flipping its Key marker to the +1 side. If already +1, give it a Resource instead.

Message from Prussia:
I play this as an event. prussia done
314 1/17/2019 10:31:00 AM 1807-1808 France Message At the moment, France has 4 normal cards (plus one Reserve which doesn't count towards preemption) and Britain has 3 normal cards (plus one Reserve), so France can indeed preempt.

However we choose not to preempt any of Austria/Russia/Prussia, so Prussia can move whenever they are ready.
313 1/17/2019 10:30:00 AM 1807-1808 Britain Message Oh and another quick question:
Does France get another ship in Rotterdam every turn? You already took one ship from there out of refit so I'm guessing it's either a rule or a piece that should have been removed. Sorry for all the questions, thanks!
312 1/17/2019 10:12:00 AM 1807-1808 Britain Message Quick question: How many cards do you have Bill? Just checking for preemption.
Onto the Prussians given there is no preemption (I guess you could retroactively preempt Russia if you want to as well).
311 1/17/2019 7:42:00 AM 1807-1808 Russia Russia: Play Strategy card as Operations #61: 2 / Fire Ships
Each blockaded Squadron in a Port of your choice rolls a die: 6-sunk, 5-damaged. Mark each damaged Squadron with a Naval Build marker. Any Squadron already under a Refit/Build marker which is damaged is sunk instead. A -1 modifier applies to a Fortress. A +1 modifier applies to Refit or Naval Builds.

Message from Russia:
Assuming France does not preempt Russia, we build one unit in Grodno. Russian turn is over.
310 1/17/2019 5:12:00 AM 1807-1808 Austria Austria: Play Strategy card as Operations #81: 6 / Napoleon Abdicates
Playable only with France's consent and if Napoleon is in play. Otherwise, play as 6 CPs. Regroup Napoleon, all French Forces not in French Home Duchies and all enemy Forces in French Home Duchies. France (but not its Pact allies) may not attack or be attacked until the next Turn when Napolon returns as a free reinforcement. If played during Turn 5, a 6th Turn is added. Voids Capitulation event vs. France.

Message from Austria:

309 1/17/2019 5:11:00 AM 1807-1808 Austria Austria: Play Strategy card as Operations #901: 6 / Hussars and Grenzers
Only Austrian flages can be placed in Austria by CP expenditure until the next scheduled Austrian Impulse. Until then, all Austrian interceptions and evasions succeed - including one failed just prior to the play of this event. Any CP expenditure for a flag placement rejected by the play of this event is forfiet. RESERVE

Message from Austria:

308 1/15/2019 6:14:00 PM 1807-1808 France Message France does not preempt Austria
307 1/15/2019 5:09:00 PM 1807-1808 France Message Minor point, but Austria was supposed to draw the card. So just to confirm, you gave the card that you drew to Austria, correct? (As opposed to drawing a card and then giving a different card to Austria.)
306 1/15/2019 4:34:00 PM 1807-1808 Britain Britain: Give Strategy card to Austria Message from Britain:

299 1/14/2019 1:32:00 PM 1807-1808 France Message So far, the French have expended 2 CPs (sailing into the North Sea and then making two interception attempts).

Napoleon +8 move to Salzburg and then to Dalmatia. Does Austria intercept from Zagreb? If not, then Napoleon +8 continue on to attack Zagreb. In which case does Austria retreat (and to where), or if they don't retreat do they play any cards? (France does not play any battle cards.)
298 1/14/2019 1:13:00 PM 1807-1808 Britain Message York it is
297 1/14/2019 1:08:00 PM 1807-1808 France Message Nope, the French won the battle because of the lone "5" and the British fleet has to go to port (either York or Edinburgh).
296 1/14/2019 1:07:00 PM 1807-1808 Britain Message Alright I'm pretty sure the French now roll 4 dice in a second round of battle and the British roll nothing due to disruption

Ignore the rest which do not participate in the same battle. May be played without an intercept attempt or after or before an intercept/evasion attempt regardless of outcome.

Message from France:
Actually we are going to make that a moot question by playing this card for its Event (which negates any Interception attempt by the British but then allows the French to automatically engage a portion of the British fleet).

Therefore we engage only one of the two British fleets in battle. We don't play any battle cards, do you? If not, the battle will be 5 dice (France) versus 3 dice (Britain) in case you want to continue with your hot rolling.
285 1/14/2019 12:02:00 PM 1807-1808 France France: Play Strategy card as Operations #905: 6 / Guerre de Course
One or two unblockaded (not Refitting) French Squadrons move Offboard to raid commerce. See Offboard Fleets on the Battleground display. British card losses never include Reserves or exceed Minimum Hand limits in the Interphase, but may include Resources. RESERVE

Message from France:
The French fleet (consisting of 2 French squadrons and 1 Spanish squadron) sails from Rotterdam into the North Sea. Do the Brits intercept us?
