Hi everybody, I have a doubt about the presence of ostile army in a province. Let's make an example to clarify.

We are in berlin and there's an italian ostile army there. An other army, from France, wants to enter in Berlin as a friendly army.

1) Must the italian army have a battle because it is ostile or It can choose to not fight? and on the contrary, if there's a friendly army in berlin and another foreign army tries to enter as ostile, only because it wants to stop tha activity in that porvince, but it doesnt' t want the battle? must the ostile army fight the friendly army to enter as ostile in that province?

2) there's an ostile army in Berlin, another army want to enter as ostile but doesnt want the battle. Can the 2 armies stay in the province as ostile armies without fighting?

cheers.
filippo

From what I understand, you always need to get permission from the other player if you want to move your armies into an enemy occupied territory.

The decision of whether to be hostile or friendly must be declared when the army enters the province of another Great Power. The friendly/hostile status of any other nations' units in the province has no effect at all and does not limit the decision in any way.

The maneuvering player has to declare whether he is opting for battle and, if so and there is more than one nation's army present, which nation he will attack.

If the maneuvering nation is not attacking then the nation(s) who are present in the province have to decide whether they wish to battle. The friendly/hostile status of any armies has no impact on this decision.

So, to answer your specific questions

1)The Italian army can choose not to fight if the French army did not wish to battle. The hostile army you talk about doesn't have to battle unless one of the other nations chooses to battle.

2) Yes, the two hostile armies can stay in Berlin without having to battle.
