New player and I have a country that has 3 transport ships parked by my coast, is this a ploy to bait me into attacking him? 1 transport has 20, and the others only have 2 each. I feel as though he is provoking me to attack. What is the best way to deal with this scenario? I believe I have the firepower to take him out, but wondering what this ploy consists of beforehand. Thanks
never really seen that before, he might be ready to invade you by sea. I generally amass troops near the enemy before I invade.
Are they new players or veterans.
If new, they are thinking you do not see them.
If veteran, they are planning on attacking you.
Results same- you attack them and wipe them out.
one game I don't think they even where planning on using some troops to naval invade, just reinforce a base (but they were going through the strait of Gibraltar, which was MINE) , as EZ Doolittle stated, the result was the same as if they were going to attack me though,=. I sent out destroyers, to well, destroy them. so yeah, if you got the navy to insure they cant naval invade you I would go at themFUNGUS! *CLAP CLAP CLAP* FUNGUS! *CLAP CLAP CLAP* FUNGUS!!!!
The Mediterranean Sea usually has several convoys scattered about.
Just keep in mind that convoys don’t actually identify the “contents” of the convoy and until you can get close enough to make the identification the convoy can be almost anything.
Obviously in your situation (owning Gibraltar) this situation of identification is not applicable.
However owning Gibraltar doesn’t mean you own the water surrounding it and as I mentioned at the start several countries will create convoys of units in the Mediterranean area. And so while it is always best to prepare defensively for a potential invasion, if I were invading the UK (assumption being made here) Gibraltar would no be my starting point since doing so would immediately require that I had to invade Spain or Morocco in order to expand elsewhere.
Of course if game is much further developed / advanced then entire last statement most likely is an invalid one.wb
If their not already gone, I would use subs or destroyers to sink them. Any convoys that come that close to your waters deserve to be sunk or bombed to death."War is fought in three ways. Helping your enemy to lose, helping your allies to victory or helping yourself to win. Any way you take it, you are always helping someone."
Get a sub, and look around it. If there are any ships (cruisers, battleships, destroyers) near it then they're probably baiting you into attacking them, or protecting the convoy. If it's the first scenario, then I'd get a bunch of naval bombers and destroy the convoy. If it's the latter then I'd get a bunch of naval bombers..and destroy the convoy. I wouldn't let anyone I don't know stay that close near me."Victorious warriors win first and then go to war, while defeated warriors go to war first and then seek to win." -Sun Tzu

Unless they are passing thru a narrow strait like Gibraltar, a convoy of 20 heading toward my homeland means invasion ... so get your planes, ships and artillery ready to give them a good reception ...

Just as a heads up, when facing convoys with like 10 or more troops, make sure to have more than 1 sub or destroyer, otherwise it's going to lose (although not without inflicting some losses into the enemy). I've once seen another player try to fight off my ~25 unit convoy with 2 or 3 subs, and he ended up losing (along with some of my troops), so you need to be careful.
If you say a random convoy with a question mark means not enough information. It could be a battle ship, a submarine, you don’t know until you patrol planes
I believe that you artillery can fire at the ships so that can be an option.Ryan

the person in question for the Gibraltar incident had been at war with me for a few days but we made peace after nothing happened, so me seeing 2 light tanks heading my way made me make a maybe unwise decision but I did give them a message saying they had to move them or they would die, I gave them 10 minutes so they probs weren't online, then I think I posted something in the newspaper so everyone saw they had a warning and a chance to change the course of the convoys,FUNGUS! *CLAP CLAP CLAP* FUNGUS! *CLAP CLAP CLAP* FUNGUS!!!!
