Princess Royal is pretty much shot to blazes: six 13.5s gone, superstructure wrecked, 20 knots, badly on fire, and 75% damage. I am playing in Admiral's Mode. I want to detach her before she is sunk, and she is slowing her division. I don't understand how I detach her.
IGNORE THE ABOVE: I forgot about 21:0 Force Orders. I was able to detach Princess Royal with no trouble.
I do have one question. Right before I detached her, she and Lion both went to Independent mode. Lion had "only" 40% damage, full speed capability and six of her 13.5s operable. I could no longer give orders to the force flagship, Lion. What happened? Was L forced to escort PR? After I detached PR I was able to attach Lion to the new force flagship, New Zealand---everything was OK. Why couldn't L remain the flagship?
