I think i'll love this game
i really love this map! okay, it’s not out yet so i’m being a bit hasty, but still…
everybody says it’s static: great!
emphasis is finally on strategy instead of tactics (so: shoudl i send 2 tactical bombers or 1 fig and tactical being game concluded replaced by 'should i send full forces against France first, or try to take out italy and russia first so i have enough rescourses…)
and also: the possiblities: there are atleast 2 ways to play any faction! (okay, not Italy, but others like GB, Germany, Russia etc have 3 fronts). You go for quick Schlieffenplan? ok. you want to win the war of attrition? good aswell!
- only question i have is that a war of attrition migh not be winnable… so a ‘tight schedule’ is neccesary
How quick is quick when it takes Germany 3 turns to get new units to the front?
Don’t get me wrong, I like what I’ve read about the game so far, but I do feel the Germans have been fatally handicapped.
And giving East Prussia to Congress Poland is wrong, wrong, wrong.
but you’re dissapointed cause the game is quite simple and without a bizallion complex idiot rules ^^
if germany produced closer to France, perhaps France wouldn’t have had a chance.
and where does it say only capitols can produce new units?
Read the reports: all new units are placed in the capital; no factories.
Its a question of authenticity not complexity. I’m completely sold on the relatively few unit types, though I still think there’s a case for bombers…
I want the map to look like the western world in 1914, not a parallel universe in which the Congress of Vienna awarded East Prussia to Poland.
Above all, I want a game in which strategy feels authentic because units move around the map in a realistic way, and in this era that means by train.
But no armored trains.
O.K. - only ONE armoured train, for the Czech Legion to bomb up and down the Trans-Siberian railroad in:
i know my Russian history, no need for wikipedia ^^
things you say are facts we can all agree to. i thought trains would be something like 2 moves in NCM in your hometerritories and/or those of friendly powers.
