I've played SC for years but new to the new Global game. Looking for an opponent of new to medium ability. I ask for a gentlemen's agreement not to use transports (Italian) as scouts.

Hi

You did say new so I thought I'd throw my hat in. Hopefully won't be too embarrassing but we'll see.

FYI they were not s outing. I was sending them to Ethiopia. Passing thru Gibraltar is the only way they can get there.

BS When I quit I saw the recap. You had your subs/ships right outside Gibraltar with your "transports" spotting. You have months to move them.

I don't really care just don't want to play a game where Italy transports spot.

I did not move any ships or subs near gibraltar. The sub was french. I only moved the transports to get them to ethiopia. They were not scouting. I never use transports to scout. Its lame. Once italy joins the war they would not make it to Ethiopia. If you had stated italian forces cannot move thru gibraltar prior to war I would have agreed to that. I think the rule not using transports as scouts is a little vague. Wanna try another game?

Most allied players block the movement by placing ships on the loop. In this case you can only get 2 italien units out of the med in the first turn.

Ahh that makes complete sense. My apologies. The transports can act as scouts. I started (ended third turn) a game way back and my opponent used the transports as scouts by moving them around Atlantic until he ran into my ships. Thats BS.

We started a second game so we're good.

If the Allies block the two gateways out of the Med on turn 1 no Italian troops can leave. Fafnir is saying that in this case the first turn is the only turn the Italians can move units out of Med. On turn two the Italian transports appear by Gibraltar could have actually been on the way to Ethiopia (not spotting).

They do spot any Allied ships which is poor.

It would be better if the game allowed the Italian units to be placed on turn 2 in Ethiopia at a cost and transports not at war would have no spotting ability.
