Well. think about this. Assume:
you hold all your treasury positions, your monarch position, both CV terts, SS (or LB).Scenario 1:
You can obviously fort to your CV terts, SS or LB from your treasury, since as you correctly stated you cannot attack your own terts from others your hold.Assume:
you hold all your treasury positions, SS (or LB), but someone has attacked both or one of your CV terts.Scenario 2:
You can then attack back to both CV terts from your treasury (or from bordering vessels)Assume:
you hold all your treasury positions, your monarch position, both CV terts, SS (or LB).Scenario 3:
Your Monarch is attacked and taken from one of your opponents CV terts. Ouch!
What to do? You have to gain control of one of your opponents' CV terts to retake your Monarch tert. This make the Monarch a very "required position" to hold.
And the strategy decisions that come from that when you are initially deploying at the start of your turn is to deicide whether your Monarch gets your initial "game deploy (usually of +3)" or to use it for other vessels you hold.
Remember the Monarch is part of the losing condition, and the Monarch already has +1 autodeploy.
Does that explain it?
