I heard this from another player, but I wanted to verify.

To prevent movement across a crossing arrow, do you need a HEAVY fleet in the sea area, or is the presence of a LIGHT fleet sufficient to stop say Nappy marching onto London. The manual just says a fleet, not a type, but I wanted to doublecheck.
Thanks

Erik

You need a HEAVY FLEET....Marshall confirmed this elsewhere.

Odd because Monadman confirmed any fleet for our PBEM here: http://www.matrixgames.com/forums/tm.asp?m=1645130&mpage=2&key=

I just ran GB and France through land movement. I had only one light fleet (with 1 factor in it) blocking the Channel. France could not cross.

It may be that some crossing arrows are implemented differently than others. This would be a bug, of course, but it's a possibility.

When I read the post that Murat mentioned I thought the BUG was Heavy Ships ONLY and not Light Ships yet.....is that not how other people read it?

Then I realized that I mentioned the wrong guy....it was Monadman.... I am SO USELESS sometimes.....

Thanks to Murat and Jimmer for correcting me.....my bad ecn1

I hate providing FALSE information......grrrrr

NOTE TO SELF: This is NOT Diplomacy....you don't have to lie all the the time.....

This just in: the AI took over France for this land phase in our pbem. GB had a light fleet in the Channel. That did NOT stop 4 French Corps from force-marching right across the Channel and into London.

The GB player is, understandably, pretty miffed....

Yes, Gazfun (your host) just sent a file and I was able to duplicate the bug. Turns out that the AI is indeed cheating and crossing the channel. We should have a fix for this in the 1.01 patch.
