I am certain this must have been answered previously before but forgive me.

What is the advantage of placing one of your current soldiers on a territory you already occupied from previous turn ?
Do you not score for the territory from your piece of the previous era ?
so why replace it ? other than if you want to get through that territory to get to another place but i am certain you can go around it.

We just can not seem to comprehend the advantage of replacing your own piece from the previous era !

S.O.S Please. Thank you. Frida

You've answered your own question. The primary reason to replace an older empire piece is beating a pathway to another region. You are correct that, in most cases, you could go around. However, circumvention usually means spending even more armies and limited supply often makes such a choice inefficient. To a lesser extent the location may contain a resource icon and you can only build monuments with resource pairs from the current empire.
