Thanks, Greenoaks -- I figured a similar suggestion must have been made by someone before. Whether it's called Paratroops or Airlift or whatever, I hope it gets some attention!

Airlift reinforcement

Postby Vlasov on Sat Nov 03, 2012 1:58 pm

During the reinforcement phase, Airlift could be an option:

1) With Adjacent or Chained reinforcement, armies can be moved to ANY non-adjacent friendly territory in lieu of the standard reinforcement.
2) With Unlimited reinforcement, armies can be "airlifted" only once per turn, with all other reinforcements proceeding normally.

If this is too radical, perhaps a payment/loss of one or more armies could be included in the Airlift reinforcement.

Sorry, I didn't check to see if this topic has been suggested before.

It introduces a new strategic element, since a player holding separated map positions could transfer forces from a weak point to a strong point, and perhaps survive longer. I'm sure there would be many ramifications, especially when combined with other options (e.g. Assassin) and the more complex maps.

i suggested it back in 2010 and it is currently in Submitted Suggestions

Paratroop Reinforments

Airlift is mentioned as an alternative name for it.

I like Greenoaks' suggestion, as described above. My own recent suggestion is to add "airlift"/paratroops as an auxiliary method of reinforcement which could be used instead of Adjacent or Chained, or be combined with Unlimited reinforcement (only once per turn).

I agree with merging "airlift" under the name "Paratroop" -- my recent suggestion is very similar, but Greenoaks said it first, and his idea is more concise and easier to implement.

ty, there does seem to be a gap in the reinforcements spotted by both of us.
we can move all groups to any connected territory
we can move one group to any connected territory
we can move one group to any adjacent territory

how about one group to any unconnected territory?

i don't mind what it is called. however for me with:-
Paratroop i think of troops arriving to reinforce a region or land behind enemy lines
Airlift i picture as an emergency evacuation

My original idea (now modified) was that Paratroop reinforcement would be COMBINED with the other Reinforcement options:
1) With Adjacent or Chained, it would allow one transfer of a group of armies to any other friendly territory (i.e. same player or an ally in team games) in lieu of any other reinforcement.
2) With Unlimited, it would allow one transfer of a group of armies to any other friendly territory -- HOWEVER only once per turn (to prevent a player from redistributing his armies all over the map).
"Paratroops" is a better term, although the idea of "airlift" to evacuate armies from a surrounded territory might apply in certain cases.

As far as a narrative goes, I think people would use this feature to do both. I'm not sure if you're promoting one or the other here, but both seem applicable to different ways players would use this feature. "Airlift" your troops out of Aus because you know some noob is going to crash stacks. "Paratroop" your partner to make a surprise attack from deep within enemy lines.

I agree that unlimited paratroop moving is probably a bad idea. In a doubles game, I would think that this would virtually ensure the win to the team that played first except on a very few select maps and rare cases of extremely poor dice.

i'm just thinking out loud as they are both decent names.
