    Full description of the problem (Be detailed!):

    As you can see, the sea garrison limit for this town is 300, yet with a fight of over 330 ships, the small battle field is still in use. Note that I (the town owner) am not actually involved in the battle.. it's an alliance mate attacking to free the port.

    Is this a bug? Or some lack in my understanding of the garrison limit rules?

  • A "garrison" would be the units assigned to a fort, town, base, etc., the units that are protecting it. Garrison has a few other related meanings but all are defense related. So the garrison limit only applies to units stationed in the town, as Rex pointed out.

  • Ahhh, that explains it. Is that a recent change, or specific to sea battles? That's not the was land battles work (at least last time I had a land battle that big)
