The only time I'd ever attack 2 neutrals with 1 is in straight round, if I already have a 2 and a 3 next to the neutral, and I need to take the territory in order to finish a bonus or get a card piece.

There are many exceptions to this but I generally do so.....

• Bumping a bonus for a Teamate to allow it be a FTB.

• I have conveinent leftovers to take the territory without deploying. (If I am in contact with my enemy.)

• Bumping a 3' army wasteland in Guiroma so I can take it 3v2.

This is assuming SR.

If it's WR, I occasionally do it if I need a delay move and am at an income disadvantage with makes me desperate to expand (would only save me 1 army if it works, so I mean *really* desperate). Usually way to risky for my taste.

Yeah, as Master Turtle says, assisting a teammate (in straight round) is another time.

still not worth it on SR. you lose extra army taking the 2 overall (2 instead of 1) by hitting it twice.

I do it to chip for a teammate if they cannot take a bonus without it (then it is worth the lost army). Or if you MUST delay with it.

Those lost armies add up

Say there are 3 territories in a row A (which I occupy with 2), B a neutral of 2, and C territory beyond which is in another player's hands. I might attack B with 1 to send a signal to player #2, which if he watches his turn will result in him seeing me attack territory B with an army of 1. This is useful in 2 different ways in my experience.

1. It can "warn off" a player from developing or attacking territory B, because they will make contact with me.

2. It can provoke an outrageously large attack at an opportune moment, someone pouring their whole reinforcement to attacking territory B while I slice into his rear with a large stack of my own, or otherwise manipulate the game one way or another.

I think he's talking about 1v2's not 2v1's.

When to attack 2 neutrals with 1 = when to do a 1v2.

1. Tapping a territory for a teammate so he can take it with 2 armies

2. I have leftovers on 2 different territories bordering a territory I need to take and I need every single army somewhere else

3. I desperately need a delay and it's the only way i can make it (but i almost always prefer to hit a 4 or 3 neutral if i can)
