here's a gripe i have about turkish withdrawal and was wondering if anyone can enlighten me on the reasoning behind it.

if a TU SCU/tribe stack is attacked and declares turkish withdrawal and the battle's outcome is a draw/win for the turks (after reducing losses by 1 because of turkish withdrawal) the turkish SCUs must retreat but the tribe can, if the CP chooses, stay in the space, thus preventing any AP advance.

this seems to me to be a case of the CP having their cake and eating it too - they get to reduce their losses, withdraw all or just part of their force if they wish, and some of their units (tribes) get to stay as well, preventing any AP advance if the tribes stay.

what is the reasoning behind the tribes having the special ability of ignoring the withdrawal order?

loving the game anyway,
wayne

Well, it's not just tribes - it can also be used stacked with e.g. Bulgarian infantry. I would hazard a guess that the effect is a simulation of superior Turkish defensive tactics, denying the Allies the opportunity to hurt their opponent, while allowing their friends to take advantage of the Allies' confusion.
