Yeah, let me post what I think is going on so if I'm wrong about this being WAD someone can correct me.
I sent some armor units to the hext west of Loyang to block the retreat path along the road for units retreating out of Loyang.
However, on the same turn I took Loyang, aztez had a large number of units move (normally) out of Loyang to the west hex.
Since my guys were already there, they owned the hex and all six hexsides. When the units moved in from Loyang, aztez now owns the eastern hexside but not the other five. He can leave through the east only; I can leave through the other five only.
Is this basically correct?
BTW, I think aztez will be able to knock out the two regiments with a single attack, and if not I volunteered to move them out of the way. To me, it makes perfect sense that an armored blocking force could cause a turn or two of delay, but eventually Chinese'd just go around. Although I sort of think they're going to plow through on the first attempt (interesting situation, though - experienced, high morale armor against inexperienced, possibly out of supply chinese with few AT weapons, but the armor is outnumbered)
