Hi redmarkus4 don't let a little thing like getting hammer by the AI put you of,in a very short period of time, it will become second nature to you,the learning curve can be steep but its worth it,as for the heavy loss all the units take in the game,using notepad its very easy to change the defence strenght number,from say 18 defence to 35 defence,the units will now last longer in combat,giving you time to repair them if needed?
I'm trying to love this game as it has an elegant interface and I like the game mechanics. However (admittedly I'm a noob) I am put off by the apparent weakness of the 1914 Central Powers (almost no troops in the east???) and the seeming overwhelming strength of the Allied AI, which has smashed me to pieces within a few turns on my first three attempts.
This looks to me like another of those titles that requires you to learn a lot of game techniques rather than employing somewhat historical strategies... Please correct me if I am wrong about this.
Make it so!
