Thanks. Is the positive victory margin in relation to the other players?
This is in reference to the diamond-shaped question "Player victory margin positive?", right?
In the COIN series, player standardly refers to the human player, while non-player is the non-human player. So, you playing this solo means you are the player. You don't have a positive victory margin at the start of the scenario.
As to your original question, I think Oerjan's probably guessed your interpretative trouble. You follow the flowchart and you answer the first diamond question negatively (Rally would not lead to the Warlords placing a base). This takes you to the aforementioned diamond to which the answer is No, so you end up in the March box.
It can be that it is not possible to conduct any of the March action points (probably because the Warlords guerrillas would leave their bases unprotected if they'd March). In that case, as Oerjan says, you follow the If None arrow which takes you to the Rally box.
You will most likely be able to conduct at least one Rally action point since the Warlords probably have guerrillas available.
If not, you follow the If None again, but since you already tried to March you're in a loop between the Rally and the March boxes. Then you note there's that bubble that says "Loop: Attack".
And so on and so on.
Thanks for playing the variant bots! Let us know how it goes. It takes a few turns to get into the groove and internalize the bot chart's language.
