My oppenent in a current game of PBEM, the venerable, northern land owning gent, Empire101 has been waging unrestricted submarine warfare on my poor unsuspecting merchant fleet.

As a result, the Yanks are going to be in before 1916!!! Hussah

It will be interesting to hear if they make any significant difference.

You'll also need to build up your transport capacity. I would recommending doing that first and foremost, as it doesn't cost upkeep, and you can't really get your army across the Atlantic without it. It takes quite a while for the US to mobilise.

So much for the Arsenal of Democracy...so apart from an airforce, a proper army, a navy and a merchant fleet, the Yanks are all set to get me out of a hole?

The Game is borked! Get me the President!

What is the trigger for unrestricted submarine warfare as opposed to just submarine warfare? Actually destroying convoys as opposed to just damaging them. In my current game against warspite I have 3 subs at sea – just how angry will the Americans be if I start using them?

My theory is that the trigger is a certain amount of damage points to convoys.

I'd love to have a hotseat option to sandbox this and verify.

I think you are right cat, or its an accumulation of hits over a certain time frame possibly.

It's even worse: the bloody yanks interfere with my minor border corrections in central Europe even when I don't use a single u-boat! All I did was use the Hochseeflotte to convince some convoy captains to scuttle their ships and bam! The Yanks blast me for torpedoing hapless merchants! it's just not fair, I tell you...



On a serious note:I'd love to see an option to buy an "unrestricted submarine warfare" upgrade that would boost sub damage to transports by 50% or something like that.
