It's making for thrilling reading...

I'm not really sure what your strategy should be, but one option would be to try for a major offensive in Romania. Push hard and deep, try to outflank and encircle your enemy. Romania itself isn't the objective here, trying to induce the Russian revolution is. If you can free up the Eastern front, you can do your own Kaiserschlacht


Hmmm...I didn't know I could induce the Russian revolution! How does one do that?

Turn 55: 20 Jul. 1916

West Front: Allies launch a effort to break through on a weakened unit and left it with 5 pts on it. It will fall next turn and the dam will break there.

East Front: Russians make a concerted effort of killing a garrison, only 3 pts left on it. I plan on taking the Romanian capital then do what I can to cause chaos in Russia.

Italian Front: Quite

Middle East: Quite

That's essentially how you induce the Russian revolution :)

The Russian revolution is triggered by a combination of date ranges and national morale. If Russia is not under any pressure, the revolution won't happen. If you can batter their morale enough to trigger the revolution, they will surrender much quicker.

Ah...makes sense, thanks for the info [;)]

Turn 56: Eastern Front, 3 Aug. 1916

Western Front: Allies managed to push back a battered infantry unit, leaving it with only 2pt. But they didn't advance! I hope they don't I don't have the soldiers to hold them.

Eastern Front: Northern sector is stable, but the southern part is coming into the hands of the Bulgarians.

Italian Front: Allies pulled back a hex in the north, which I advanced into. In the eastern part they use 3...THREE ARTILLERY against me, destroying a unit there. They advanced but I had a unit behind it to stop any mischief.

Middle East: Quite

Convoy is heading my way! It is the only thing keeping the Germans in the fight.

CarnageINC -> RE: Carnageinc Central Powers AAR (11/19/2012 10:40:18 AM)

Turn 57: East Front, 17 Aug. 1916

Western Front: I had to pull back to my last defensive line before I need more troops to cover the front

Eastern Front: I managed to go on the offensive in 2 areas! One was just luck I think, I attacked a Russian infantry unit and they lost like 3 pts I think and retreated....hell yeah! Well see what happens in that sector. In the south I still pound Romanian positions and get some good exchanges.

Italian Front: A allied unit advances into Munich! I can do little to stop them from marching over the alps now.

Middle East: Quite

Ouch ouch ouch, that will have hurt your PP income. I guess you understand that it's critical to stem their advance there. You may need to draw troops back from the Russian front (in the north).

Can you afford to send a couple of Turkish garrisons (or even just one) into the Caucasus? You don't need to achieve any victories here, but just to force the Russians to garrison their cities and draw their resources away from your eastern front in Europe?




CarnageINC -> RE: Carnageinc Central Powers AAR (11/19/2012 10:59:05 AM)

Turn 58: East Front, 31 Aug. 1916

Western Front: Quite...for now

Eastern Front: All hell is breaking loose here. In the north the Russians fire up an offensive and make some ground, in the center I managed to push forward some and in the south I've broken into open ground. I have no clue on what a head of me but I'll find out!

Italian Front: I make moves to isolate Munich, should hold for a turn or two. I have new AH units arriving soon to go on a minor offensive here.

Middle East: Quite. I have some new Turkish unit that I'm going to place north to bolster that defensive line.

Here is a screen shot of my research projects that will be finishing soon.

CarnageINC -> RE: Carnageinc Central Powers AAR (11/19/2012 11:17:58 AM)

Turn 59: Italian Front, 14 Sep. 1916

West Front: Quite

East Front: Chaos assumes all across the front here. The Russians are slightly pulling back all across the front here. I've gone on the offensive anywhere I can to cause casualties. I made a mistake and left the only Romanian infantry unit left un attended and within range of a city [:-]

Italian Front: The allies are being timid here...thank goodness for that! I took back Munich and think I can do some slight damage control here. I may have to take some AH garrison forces in the east and bring them back home.

Middle East: My flanker is going to be destroyed soon, the British guard their rear well.

balto -> RE: Carnageinc Central Powers AAR (11/19/2012 11:53:51 AM)

How do you induce the Russian Revolution? Someone posted that they had to grab almost every single Russian city to get them to quit.




Myrddraal -> RE: Carnageinc Central Powers AAR (11/19/2012 12:01:31 PM)

The Russian revolution doesn't guarantee that Russia will drop out of the war. There are two 'revolution' events, both of which reduce Russia's national morale (and so accelerate their surrender)




CarnageINC -> RE: Carnageinc Central Powers AAR (11/19/2012 5:00:41 PM)

Turn 60: East Front, 28 Sep, 1916

West Front: Quite

East Front: A blaze with activity! I have gone bonkers in my offensive in the north...put my forces in jeopardy [:-] To much WitE I guess [:'(]

Italian Front: I managed to cut of 3 Italian troops, one will not escape.

Middle East: British clash with my forces in the mountains south of my defensive line but achieve little.

CarnageINC -> RE: Carnageinc Central Powers AAR (11/19/2012 5:23:22 PM)

Turn 61: East Front, 12 Oct. 1916

West Front: Quite

East Front: Lost a infantry unit up north but I think I'm making progress all along the front. In the south is where I'm having the most success as you can see in the picture.

Italian Front: I'm slowly stabilizing the front I have 2 Italian units surrounded and hopefully can kill them off soon.

Middle East: New arrival placed in defensive lines, stalemate in the south in the mountains.

Convoy is en route!

Turn 62: Eastern Front, 26 Oct. 1916

West Front: Quite

East Front: I've continued to try and encircle as many units as I can and have been kinda successful...so far. 2 cites are in trouble of falling to my hands [sm=00000028.gif]

Italian Front: Things in the east sector are troublesome but I should be able to stem the allied advance soon.

Middle East: I brought down 2 Inf. units to attack the most northern British unit since it had good attack odds and wasn't entrenched yet.

Convoy arrived safely and I have a few units ready to deploy next turn.

Turn 63: Italian Front, 9 Nov. 1916

West Front: Minor probe attack

East Front: Chaos still reins! I'm in the process of eliminating 2 Russian units. My Bulgarians destroyed a Russian Cav unit.

Italian Front has dived into chaos as well. I keep loosing a unit only to replace it with a garrison unit. I doing what I can to stop the allies from coming over the Alps but at a loss since I can't...as the Germans...build a unit.

Middle East: I launched a full out assault on the Brits, taking more damage than giving. [:(]

West Front: Quite

East Front: Bulgarians drive deep into Russia, meeting little opposition. The AI refuses to let go of its grip in the north.

Turn 65: European Theater, 7 Dec. 1916

West Front: Qutie

East Front: Russians are trying to relieve both cites I have surrounded. I have been unable to make any headway against them...I miss my artillery so much now! [:(] I'm going to start driving northward to cut off the whole Russian army from supply...MWAHAHAHA!!!

Italian Front: Some saneness has come about the madness that was going on here. I'm trying to kill off a wayward Allied inf. unit.

Middle East: I feel confident so far in the Turks I'm recalling home a Bulgarian Infantry formation to help against Odessa.

Turn 66: Middle East, 21 Dec. 1916

West Front: Quite

Turn 68: East Front, 18 Jan. 1917

West Front: Quite

East Front: The Russians are quite fixated on Warsaw and are doing their damnest do get it back! Again nothing at Lemberg. My northern drive has hit some resistance at Minsk. I'll leave a unit behind and drive on with 3.

Italian Front: The Allies send a unit forward only to have it surrounded. This theater is finally going my way again.

Middle East: AHH! I have an Arab Revolt on my hands, Arab units taken Midena, in the far south, and are storming northward.

East Front: My main objective is to cut the supplies of those pesky Russians in the front lines. Kinda of gamey...yes...but I want to see the Russian revolution!!!

Italian Front: The allies are retreating, and I have the advantage in numbers!

Middle East: British launch an offensive toward the north and I pulled back toward my defensive line.

West Front: Quite

East Front: I managed to cut off a big portion of the front, time will tell what the AI will do.

Italian Front: AHH!!! TANKS! TANKS!...the French beat me to the tank! This is kinda put me on the back foot till I can rest my troops.

Middle East: Quite

I need a convoy soon to help me get my tanks! I had a bunch of new technologies come out but I'm holding off on upgrading my units.

Myrddraal -> RE: Carnageinc Central Powers AAR (11/20/2012 9:44:46 AM)

This really has been a roller-coaster. When you started the game, I thought you were going the thrash the Entente with your swift victories in Serbia and France. Then the Entente simultaneously counter-attacked in the West, Italy and Middle East and I thought you wouldn't make it... now you're reversing your fortunes again. Russia seems doomed now, you have the numerical advantage and plenty of space to manoeuvre. I would guess now the key to victory will be a swift Russian defeat so you can bring your power to bear against the western and Italian fronts.




CarnageINC -> RE: Carnageinc Central Powers AAR (11/20/2012 10:26:59 AM)

Yeah, its been a roller coaster ride for sure. Great kudos to the AI for keeping me on my toes.

Turn 71: Italian Front, 1 Mar. 1917

West Front: Quite

East Front: The AI managed to break out with 1 unit but I managed again to cut them off by kill that unit. Time will tell on how the AI will react.

Italian Front: I'm awaiting my forces to come out of fatigue to counter attack that dam tank unit.

Middle East: The Brits come across my defensive line and I manage to counter attack and damage a infantry unit.

Convoy in bound just in time to for my tank research to come to fruit.

West Front: Quite

East Front: Large sections have been turned over to my forces but there is still an opportunity for the Russians to keep their forces in supply. The AI is doing well for finding solutions.

Italian Front: I took the chance to attack the armored unit and it paid off. I got some good odds and I as you see it knocked it down 5 pts.

Middle East: The British offensive stalls against the defensive line.

Convoy arrives safely.

Italian Front: Destroyed a 3 pt infantry unit and the French pull back their tank for now.

Middle East: The British knock out one Turkish Inf. unit and I oblige back and destroy one of theirs.

I got my tank coming! Going to use it in the east to knock out these dug in Russians.
