I'm using the 2012_0226 rulebook for TSBEF.
Three question of the "The Struggle Between England & France" rules :
1 Why the Matrix tactic is not used at "The Struggle Between England & France
"? ,I do not see in the rules.
I removed the Tactical Matrix. I do not believe it adds value to the game I have put forth.
Players of the original WaP who like this Matrix can retrieve it from the original game and add it as an optional rule.
2 Must naval units suffer attrition while they're blocking a port?
The answer to question #3 will also answer this.
3 The naval units blocking a port, are they in coastal hex or "at sea"?
These naval units are in a coastal hex, not "at sea". As such they are immune from Naval Attrition.
I do feel it would be a nice addition to have some kind of wear & tear of the naval units on blockade duty. The current rules do not model this. Should you wish to use a house rule to include blockading units in the attrition roll please feel free to do so. The units being blockaded, however, should be immune from attrition regardless.
