Hi all, new to the forums and have been perusing these wonderful guides. Many of them use certain terms that I'm unsure about and though I have seen a glossary it only references abbreviations for units. The term I'm unsure about is "cutoff". It seems to represent a certain sector with relation to ones base but I'm really unsure about this. Any help is appreciated. Thank you.

all resource points must have a series ofconnected to your base to get resources.

cutoffs are basically any capture points that cuts off resources to your base.

Usually in one on one maps there's always a a few major cutoff points.

Samois, the two main cut offs are the +10 fuel point next to the base and the +3 Man power point right outside its exits.

Yeah, as DFK said, points (as you will doubtless know) have to be connected for the resources to flow in. The intermediate points, especially those which are the fast-to-cap 'vanilla' points (+3 manpower/population cap) are referred to as cutoffs.

Examples of 'big' cutoffs:

- Semois bridges into the base.
- Angoville points linking up/down to the +16s
- The Langres North strategic point just south of the base.

Taking these usually knocks your foe down to a +0/5 or +10/+10 income (assuming the standard neighbouring +5 fuel and +10 munitions are capped, slightly different on Semois and a handful of other maps), rather than +loads/loads, and also sharply reduces the population cap.
