I have some questions related to Naval Control, as I am having a hard time understanding rule 7.2.
Assume the Bornholm Basin and Southern Baltic are NATO controlled, along with all relevant inshore boxes. Assume the Northern Baltic is contested, along with all relevant inshore boxes.
Per GSR 5.6.1 the two NATO controlled sea zones will not change, so no die rolls needed for these zones. I presume the same would apply to the relevant Inshore Boxes.
Where I am getting confused is the wording of 7.2, specifically the first paragraph:
"In general, the Initiative/First Player rolls a die for each Inshore box, unless the At Sea Box is Contested. Otherwise, roll for each Inshore box which is either Contested or controlled by a player different than the one who controls the associated At Sea Box."
Using the example above, does this mean there will be no roll for any Inshore boxes associated the Northern Baltic Sea Zone because this Sea Zone is contested?
Correct. If the At Sea Box isn't controlled, then there is no roll for an Inshore Box.
