Playing as the Entente, I pushed the Germans back into their Fatherland and had taken Ruhr and Strassburg, with Munich and Frankfurt under fire, sank the High Seas Fleet with the 10% resultant morale loss... yet the Germans never surrendered and I was told I had suffered a marginal defeat after the last turn!

Do other people ever see Germany throwing in the towel in the 1918 scenario? Do other people play scenarios besides 1914? The Kaiser must have been one heck of a leader in my alternate world... even the SPD must have worshipped him.

Btw, it was tough to get US troops into France in mass even by late 1918... building infantry, then shipping them across the atlantic, then entraining them to the front, then waiting for their efficiency to recover is about a 10-14 turn process.

I have yet to start anything other than 1914, though it was my intention to play this scenario as entente next time I start a game versus the AI.

That will probably be this weekend, so I'll see how my results compare.

A scenario only 20 turns long? I'd have to mod the victory conditions so the war could end in 1921 or 1922 before I bothered with it. I guess it could be good for multi-player, but the German/Austrian morale needs to be changed so that they collapse if they don't take Paris and suffer significant loses. Likewise, the French morale should be low enough that they quit if Paris falls.

21 turns.

Ended up with a marginal defeat ... eep.

The US troops arrived just fast enough to plug some holes in France, and then push the line back North a bit.
Italy had it rough initially, but took Trieste and was in Southern Germany at the end.
Balkan front moved North 1 Hex over most of the front
Middle East was a disaster for me. I over extended and got torn to pieces.

5-6 more turns would have been decisive.

Catwhoorg, that basically is what happened in my scenario as well (although I drew in the Middle East, which was fortunate. The AI trained in absolute swarms of units there).

Judging from the morale levels of the European Entente powers, it seems to me that all of the morale levels are pegged too high for this scenario. We shouldn't suffer marginal defeats for territory/casualty results far better than the historical result.

I'll have to fire up the scenario as the CP to gauge how their morale is, but I agree that they certainly seem to be a little high.

The Entente morale and MP reserves seemed high in some cases.
