Occupy Objective Question

Recommended Posts

Possibly a dumb question BUT,


Is it normal for a Occupy Objective victory location to disappear when you locate it?  Message received was that "Troops have located 'objective x' " ; the mission briefing states occupy.


I thought you had to be "holding" it when the scenario ended to count as occupying?  Does this mean I will get the points even if I move my troops away?


When I say disappear i mean the green background to the location, which outlines the objective AS's - 1 problem i have is that it was a large objective and I can't figure out where the edges of it were.


btw I have checked and objectives are STILL turned on (several others still visible)



Thanks for the help in advance and please feel free to abuse me or yell RTFM if necessary :)

Hmmm that was my assumption - The scenario briefing definetely lists it as an ocupy objective. 


Would it be "gamey" to adjust my plans now as my opponent will be assumming I am going to garrison this location?  (btw this is a HtH game with a scenario.) OTOH it does give me a chance to recover from a major cock-up in deplyment :)


I will report this (after the game) in my feedback obviously.

It could just be the briefing is wrong, or it could be a freebie - what scenario is it ?


Is the objective known to both sides as if not your opponent won't know about it regardless of whether it is a touch or occupy objective

Dunno whether my opponent knows the allied objectives; and I don't want to open the scenario as it may give me an unfair advantage.


I've decided to treat this as a designed error 

i.e. You have received updated intelligence/orders.  I'll discuss it with my opponent after the game is finished.


Many Thanks for  your replies.

Well that's interesting because that's one of mine.


The intent here ( I think, as it was a while ago) was to give the Allied player some flexibility as to occupy all the objectives would be very difficult.  I won't say any more as you are still playing but we can pick this up when you finish if you like. But you are correct the error is deliberate.

Thanks Pete Wenman,


I will give you some feedback (if wanted) when we finish; so far it's very "interesting" - in a nail biting - "OH GAWD WE'RE ALL GOING to DIE" way :)


Just a comment - I really like the idea of "misleading/flexible" briefings/objectives as this better reflects the reality of combat.


Anyway back to the game
