thanks for the clarification- agreed -refits first to the west but if a korps is facing elimnation he need s to be kept up to strength (to the pt where 1 attack willnot annhilate it) thus keeping pressure on the german ef is very important.

I have learned the hard way, not to defend to much to the east with Germany. I use all 7 German B corps and an HQ stacked together.

Your offensive against AH assumes, AH is not going to fight for Galicia. I choose in my last game to ignore Serbia and defend with the entire AH army in a line from Krakow to Lemberg, that is using the permanent fortresses, which are a pain for the Russians to take out as they lack siege artillery. The east side of Galicia was screened with cavalry only.

Well Russia went for EP and AH launched a spoiling offensive towards Warsaw and Brest-Litovsk, which attracted some attention from Ivan which was also the intention

Granted, Russia is a bit stronger than AH in manpower and quality, but given all factors i think it is a even match is Russia goes for AH first.

Well, that remains still to be seen.

Yep - if AH decides to defend Galicia then it all changes again!! 

And then you can get Serbia taking a few towns...maybe British troops landing at Scutarii in 1915 to defend vs Bulgaria, and Turkey remaining isolated......

Wonderful ain't it!

Yeah, your initial deployment and guesses about opponent's deployment are real nail biters.
