1.21 Scn 15 playing as Japanese

Captured Singapore overland with forces attached to Southern Area Army (100% of forces). Southern Area Army HQ adjacent; Burma Area HQ in Mandalay (20 hexes away)

Singapore base now attached to Burmy Area Army

Cannot change base to any other command; Many Southern Area army units in Singapore. 1400 pp required to change with 3600 in pool but all choices are grayed out.

Query 1: what determines Command Affiliation of captured base?

Query 2: Why can't I change base to new affiliation?

Query 1 response (tentative):
After some limited tests (every time I start to set up a real test I put it aside and to back to playing) I now believe that the initial affiliation of a captured base is strictly geographic; if a base is captured that was captured IRL, the initial affiliation is the one it had IRL.

<whispers> They're ignoring you. You're supposed to go away and stop bugging them about the problem when they do that.

Not sure in WitP, but in PacWar the newly captured base was set to the HQ of the top unit in the list of attacking units. So I'm assuming its something along those lines with WitP, but it might be force related.. If 90% of your force is China Expitionary Army, then every base captured will go to that HQ.. I am not 100% on this but perhaps another beta can clarify this question.

We already have a save for this and are looking into it.
