This counts as a SR action (see 9.3.3). May be played after Greek Entry provided Salonika is Allied controlled and subject to stacking limits.

646 3/8/2019 11:40:00 AM Summer 1917 Allies Message That's ok, there's just not many good options.
645 3/8/2019 11:34:00 AM Summer 1917 Central Powers Message Also, if you'd like to change your retreat given there's no unit in Vilna, I have no problem with that
644 3/8/2019 11:25:00 AM Summer 1917 Allies Message Got it - I was missing the GE(c) in Insterberg. Fixed my map.
643 3/8/2019 11:19:00 AM Summer 1917 Central Powers Message How so? I think I have GE(c) Insterberg, GE14 Grodno and GE17 Vilna. You'd have to get all the way to Konigsberg to cut me off
642 3/8/2019 11:07:00 AM Summer 1917 Allies Message Hmm, although if you did advance that way I would have to give you an OOS warning for GE17 and GE9.
641 3/8/2019 11:06:00 AM Summer 1917 Central Powers Message That's fine with me- I totally overlooked the Vilna move because I saw the 3 OPs combat.
640 3/8/2019 11:04:00 AM Summer 1917 Allies Message I have RU1 in Vilna - they moved from Szawli on my last action (see line 623). However, now that I look back at that move I realize I did it wrong, since now it costs me 3 Ops just to activate Ismail for combat (2 RU armies and one ROc), but I only spent 2 ops on it.

So to fix this why don't I say RU1 is back in Szawli and you did your advance as you stated. Let me know if this sounds fair to you and matches your game state.
639 3/8/2019 11:01:00 AM Summer 1917 Central Powers Message OOS threat to Szawli if you don't have anyone in Riga, away from my map and can't remember

628 3/7/2019 3:05:00 PM Summer 1917 Central Powers Message Good point. I probably don't, I'll need to look at my map in a couple hours to say where I want to go
627 3/7/2019 3:02:00 PM Summer 1917 Allies Message I think I had a full strength ROc in Ismail (flipped now due to the combat results). Also your retreat would allow RU11 to advance into Berlad putting AH4 in Kishinev out of supply - are you sure you want to do that?
