Question about diminishing supply:
The manual states: If a unit cannot trace an LoC tot a supply source, its supply level will drop by an amount equal to the number of half days in a turn.
What is that 'amount'? Is it a percentage, something else?
THanks in advance for your replies.
OK, if you're lucky your unit wll have been at 100% supply when he was cut off, for example. :) Now, also, say you're playing full week turns, now last time I checked there were 7 days, and therefore 14 half-days in a week. Therefore, it would take less than 10 turns for that unit to be down to 1% supply, if he did absoutely nothing.
Now, attacking also takes a certain percentage of your supply, pretty sure it 10% per attack, so every time you unit attacks when it is cut off, it losses an additional 10%.
SO, if your 100% supply unit is cut off, attacks three times in a turn, gets attacked 3 times by the enemy in that turn, and is unsupplied, you'd be down to 26% supply after a single turn... OUCH!
EDIT: Does that answer your question?

To repeat history in a game is to be predictable.
