Germany 1904 ish. At war with Italy. Passing a couple CAs through Med on way to Indian Ocean, Active Fleet. Game rolled an encounter. I think it said "convoy attack" or something like that. Seems the objective was to "Sink 6 TR."
I sank 1 AMC and 5 TR and lost. Italy gained about 250 more VP than me. Suffered no damage or sinkings.
I think the terms for VPs could be tweaked a bit. Say if you sink as many ships as the objective called for, and (or) the total tonnage sunk exceeds the estimated value for the objective, you get your objective reward even if you didn't exactly achieve the objective.
Love the game though. Crack cocaine level stuff . . .
