RE: Russian Revolution question
the RR can never be triggered: everybody seems to forget Russian can just abandon Moscow and keep their army as a whole (and achieving RR without contesting Moscow is next to impossible)
the only way to stop is it take all surrouding countries: but karelia can easily be taken by UK, and holding Tatarstan is also an overstretch.
RE: Getting slow…
you mean this?
a ww1 game, without western front but (thank God!) with China and South-America?
wouldn’t get my hopes up to be honest
RE: Getting slow…
The game’s in a rut, and Centrals never win. my beginning enthousiasm for the game is long gone. It became boring, unbalanced, and very long. We play with some very different house rules, which make up balance a bit without overcomplicating the game; so now I even have a variation so I can’t discuss the same game (tournament rules, units flying over the map with ‘trains’, eliminating players with stupid suicidal attacks in r1 called ‘revolutions’).
RE: Making my own WW1 game..
Personally, i’d remove kuwait and sinai. or atleast make kuwait reach persia, so brits can’t land directly on mesopotamia.
Baltic states is a bit weird, but i’ll live with it.
otherwise; bloody awesome map!
Sie haben es sehr gut gemacht
RE: An idea for balancing OOB with minimal change
my group has a few suggestions
complete neutrality: for italy till I2 and US till US6. (so no buying, moving of any kind)
bit less allied forces in africa (like in new tournament rules)
remove biskaje fleet
add a few ottomans
(you can pick which ones to use, don’t have to be all of them)
RE: Balance Issues?
Your results aren’t surprising, as you’re a bit behind the times.Â The current adjustments are:
USSR: Add 3 infantry to Russia
USA: Add 1 infantry to Northwestern China and 1 destroyer to sea zone 11
my group has started switching west-russia and ukraine; so the german tanks can be destroyed. perhaps that’s an interesting idea?
RE: How important is naval warfare in 1914?
in OOB (i have yet to try the tournament rules) it’s quite impossible. the allies have to many ships (especially the french). the CP’s don’t have enough IPC’s to compete in naval power and hold the frontlines (actually, in OOB they don’t even have enough to hold the frontlines all together)
