Well, as an update, Ulver and I have been trying out the new rules (see post #17 above). Serbia fell first, in late 1914, after a massive assault from both AH and German forces, along with 2 arty units in support.
Then, despite valiant defend-and-retreat efforts, Russia looks like it will fall in August 1915 or thereabouts. So the premise at the start of the thread, i.e.
quote: ... looks to have been proven correct. This has been made worse by neutral Britain, as it has freed up the Ottoman Empire to ravage southern Russia.
There was discussion about the reason there not being an option not to attack Belgium was then the Germans would always proceeded to destroy Russia in 1915.
That said, under the scenario we are now playing (with Britain still not participating - until Russia surrenders or 1916), the situation in Italy looks okay for the Entente. Britain will enter the war in a very strong position, both technology (except no anti-sub defence) and PP wise. It will be interesting to see how the post-1916 period plays out.
Ulver, you said in game that if Russia surrenders, then the US will enter the war after 6 turns. But I can't see that specified above?
