Jeremie was captured by France

Recommended Posts

@admin  Great Britain captured County Capitol, Port-Au-Prince.  This should therefore only allow for Great Britain to capture the under-lying county Ports.

However, France has captured Jeremie.  This is a bug in the "Frontlines" mechanic, as a Nation that is not allowed to capture a certain Port has done so.

Luckily, the fix appears to be easy to implement:  Whenever a Player generates Hostility, whether it is 1% or 100%, the game code needs to ask:  "Is this Player's Nation allowed to capture this Port?"  If the answer is "No", then all the Hostility generated needs to be ignored and none of it applied.  If the answer is "Yes", then the Hostility is applied normally.

My opinion:  The "Frontlines" mechanic is a great idea and improves the game.  However, if it can be by-passed this easily, then it may as well be scrapped.

This has been reported to the devs many, many times. They are working on it but it will take time. In the mean time they have decreed that generating hostility this way is fair play.

Im going to do you a quick solid here before you get a warning. Check this post out. It is known but not against the rules as it is done within the legal confines of the game as it stands. It will be adjusted for full release though.
