Yes it is a bug. Bill and I ran into it when playing Barbarossa and he had ships in Riga that I overran. Many bugs with this digression phase.
- When option to intercept and successful, nothing happened. Sov side never had any pop-up and Germans saw them as phasing player.
- Interception in Baltic failed, the German player was left with the Sov ship to place (lol). Even thought Sov shown as phasing player. Once ship placed in port game in bad state since Sov player is not phasing and German player is moving.
Very disappointed in the last 48hrs of trying to player MWiF. Had some game crashes around strategic bombing initially. Then had issue when NetPlay forum down for entire day (really? no alerts or automatic log-in tests?). Thus, could not play NetPlay. Now this situation with the naval rebase overrun is a game stopper. No way for the Germans to take Riga without game crashing. Thus, I don't want to continue with a bogus situation by moving around Riga.
The rebasing of overrunning ships in port seems like a basic phase that should have been tested a little more? Bill and I should have stayed more to the course of testing MWiF a while back. But life got in the way for both of us. So I kind of blame both of us for the fail in MWiF as we would have potentially caught this many months ago. Starting to rethink that release might have been a little premature. Sorry, just know what would happen if as a developer I released software into production environment with this many bugs.
Been frustration few days with MWiF, not trying to be a downer so please understand.
Here's the image that shows what occurs when interception failed and the German player became the phasing player to place the Sov BB (Marat) in Parnu.
Bill posted his saved game for this problem in post #5. Do you have the matching saved game from your side?
Perfection is an elusive goal.
