Well they could have mixed some in.
My biggest gripe is the lack of artillery sculpts.
Just swap them all around. Like give France the Italian sculpt from 1940, and give Russia the Japanese sculpt, etc. Just recolor the old molds.
Better than one cookie cutter artillery.
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.
