If you read the French Skirmish rules 4.5.2 they have an extra level to the compared to the non-player Skirmish rules in 8.6.3

4.5.2 mentions removing French regular if you remove a british fort.
8.6.3 is more simplified of just removing the british fort - no mention of a french regular.

Is this right ? i.e. non-player / Bot ignores the rules of 4.5.2 and just goes with the version in 8.6.3 ? Also the flow chart for the French seems to back this up.

Why would the bot use a variation of a human player activity ?

Thanks

They don't.

With one exception - that they're not restricted to LimOps on the Sequence of Play - bots must obey exactly the same rules as players do. Chapter 8 tells you which choices the bots make from the options made available by the game rules.

Therefore, if the French bot uses a Skirmish to remove a British Fort, it will automatically have to remove a French Regular as well because that's how the French Skirmish Special Ability works.

Regards,
Oerjan
