And neither the US Army of Mosul can reinforce the city of Mosul. They are sitting ducks.

It might be realistic, but it is not funny.

A small point, but the city of Nasiriyah appears to be misspelled on the map as Nasirlyah or NasirIyah, not sure which.
Not a massive deal, but change it if you're ever polishing the map :)

Actually, the current map seems to have a glitch there. The Mahdi Army and al-Qaeda loyalty boxes border their cities, and thus can attack back to them (in addition to being able to attack Mahdi Baghdad sectors or Sunni cities, respectively). The Baathist and US loyalty boxes border nothing. The Rules of Engagement say that the Mahdi Army and al-Qaeda loyalty boxes can attack out of their cities - but this is very easily read as a restatement of their ability to attack Mahdi Baghdad sectors or Sunni cities, not actually back to their own cities. There is also no explanation that the Baathist and US loyalty boxes are one-way traps. (Looking very close, the red arrows on the loyalty boxes seem to suggest that they should all be one-way attacks. This is insufficient and effectively no explanation, IMO, as evidenced by the number of complaints this has generated - and even if that was the intent, this is in direct conflict with the apparently intended meaning of the Rules of Engagement and the XML.)

I would suggest making all city loyalty boxes border (and thus able to attack) their cities, as well as border (and thus able to attack) the other loyalty boxes in a city. If this is not done, I would suggest that the ability of Mahdi Army and al-Qaeda loyalty boxes to attack back to their host cities be removed (except, of course, for al-Qaeda loyalty boxes for Sunni cities), and that text be put on the map legend noting that the city-to-loyalty-box attacks (at least the Baathist and US ones) are one way (again, the red arrows do not suffice as an explanation, if that was their intent).


I've run into this problem as well. There is nowhere on the map that tells you that the Baathists and US Army Loyalty squares cannot attack out - simply that the al-Qaeda and the Mahdi Army can. I don't think that this needs to change, but it should be stated somewhere on the map that if you put a stack on the Baathists (like I did by accident - good ole misdeploy) it's jammed for the remainder of the game.

I'm not sure if what I'm seeing is a bug but all I know when I was playing CC 6-12 months ago I never had this problem.

I have just started playing CC again after not for a few months. When I'm playing a game and taking my turn I need to log out of the map and then load it back up in the middle of my turn to be able to deploy troops, than to attack, end turn. I have to repeat log out, log back in each time. Please fix this problem I'm having. Thanks.

I'm not sure if it is a problem with this map or if it is a problem with mu account. This problem has also happened on other maps.

Well, obviously if it's happened on other maps it's not an Iraqi issue. BOB problem, by the way

Similar problem misdeploy on US army in Mosul, and now thats all I have left on current game, cannot attack out or reinforce to another point from there. So every turn I just add more guys to the army there which cant move, and all seems a little pointless. Option should be there to attack city itself or hop on a helicopter out of there.

what about them?

The map isn't about UN action, it's about the main force in Iraq. It tries to emulate the real situation, but it's already one of (maybe the most) the most complex maps out there. Even just adding UN forces to some degree would be difficult.

Additionally, a PC complaint doesn't do much without an integrated, considered alternative or addition.


This is a game, not real life.

I just noticed that as well...

It's spelled Nasirlyah on the map image, but Nasiriyah in the XML... It seems that Nasiriyah is the correct spelling

I'm glad I read the first page of this thread otherwise I would have had no idea how the city loyalties worked.... I'm sure I would have figured out once I noticed them in the drop down boxes for attacking from a city though... Anyway I think it's a nice well thought out map.
