I am in no way going to derail Aurelian's thread by arguing, but I will say based off what Aurelian has reported, your "coalition" clearly has communication problems. So I do not see where my observation is lacking. Get your team work sorted mate.
As I wrote before, you have no idea what is going on behind the screen. So you think it is a clever idea to give advice?
Knock it off. He's allowed to speculate.
The fact is that regardless of communications, nobody lifted a finger to help Austria.
Of course he is allowed to speculate. But he gives advice without knowing what is going on. Thats nothing but silly talks. He should keep advice for himself if there he has nothing better to say than just to blow out nonsense like this.
And you are wrong to believe there is no help for Austria. Speculate as much as you want. But I think as player of Austria I should know best what happens between Austria and its allies.
This scenario is meant to last for 10 years. You have the strongest armies in this game at the beginning. Anyone of us would be stupid to run into major battles that early in the game. It would make no sense to look for a decision within the first year. And Austria´s allies had no possibility to prevent the defeat of Austria in 1805. We have a long term strategy. Lets see if it works. And whether you have a better one.
Btw, has Austria suffered a defeat that disables it to play an important role in this game any longer? Look at the provinces you have won. Look at the ones Austria still has. Compare their economical strength, the amount of manpower they provide, the ability to provide supply, horses, guns etc. Is Austria really knocked out?
I don't have to speculate anything. I look at results.
1: Did the allies do *anything* to stop the French march to the Russo-Turkish border? Y/N.
2: Did the allies fight any battles in support of Austria? Y/N
3: Did Austria lose the war? Y/N.
In case you didn't realize it, this is *my* AAR. I will discuss what I want, about whatever I want. And Ostwindflak is allowed to do the same.
And as OWF sees the same things I see, his advice, if he chooses to give it, is based on the same information I have.
If you don't like that, don't post here.
Oh, in case you forgot, we have a three year peace. Prussia, even weaker than Austria, and nowhere near as large, can be over run long before the peace expires. So yes, Austria is out of the war as far as France goes.
