Message from Central Powers:
GE11 will help defend Berlin

Supply warning for Lemberg ;)
292 7/17/2019 7:33:00 AM Spring 1915 Allies Message I'd say let's proceed and be consistent unless your object. I appreciate your sportsmanship
291 7/17/2019 7:09:00 AM Spring 1915 Central Powers Message I agree that with the principle of not going back once dice are rolled (otherwise there would e.g. be an incentive to not issue supply warnings in the hope that the opponent launches an attack, and then offering them to take back the move only if the attack goes well). In this case the combats seem sufficiently low-stake that it might be acceptable to violate the principle.

Anyway, I'm happy to proceed with my action round 6 without putting Lemberg OOS. On the other hand, if you think redoing your R4 as if I had warned you of the supply threat would be more in the spirit of the game then feel free. It's not really clear to me who benefits from either option anyway.
290 7/16/2019 11:21:00 PM Spring 1915 Allies Message Hmm, I hadn't noticed that.

This is a bit of a gray area in my view as well. Here's my interpretation:

In general, once dice have been rolled players should not turn back the clock unless there is no other choice. So when I'm evaluating an opponent's move, I'll point out an OOS situation when I notice it: if I notice before I roll their battles, I'll give them the chance to change and it's fair game if they don't. If I notice after I roll, I'll do my move and consider it off limits until they have a chance to correct on their next move.

I'm not sure if that's official policy or just the way I've been playing it, and I realize that's an interpretation that benefits me in this instance. Given the latter I'm OK if you want to scrap my move and go back this time, but going forward I'd like to say that once a roll is done, it's done, barring extreme circumstances.
289 7/16/2019 5:44:00 PM Spring 1915 Central Powers Message Ethical problem:

My intention has been to issue supply warnings in autokill situations, even though they are not formally required. I have only just spotted that Lublin can autokill Lutsk and advance, which together with moving another unit to Dubno would put Lemberg OOS.

Is that correct? If so I feel I should offer you to redo your R5. (Of course your appreciation of my generosity may be tempered by the fact that the combat rolls had gone perfectly for you, and that your move was otherwise quite threatening.)
288 7/16/2019 4:28:00 PM Spring 1915 Allies Message no advance
