Western Front:

Dutch infantry got slaughtered last turn meaning their unconditional surrender (just looked at the information panel, Netherlands already surrendered before this turn) will happen now that all Dutch territory is in Entente hands. The French were busy too, eliminating another AH garrison by Stuttgart. AH did deploy a fresh garrison by Innsbruck, as well as a fresh fighter, also AH moved other fighter bases closer to this front, albeit a little late to help. Quality reserves are scarce right now to counter the expected tank offensives. Fixed all units possible here and made slight position changes. Did commit to sorties and hammered a English light cruiser in a mini Jutland battle. Doesn't seem like it would take Entente a whole lot of effort to push this entire CP front back further into Germany, once the Frankfurt infantry salient is crushed. Berlin is now at 17 PP, way down from the original 38 PP. AH sub fleet has arrived near Portsmouth. Double bombed Paris. A German sub fleet is heading for the North Sea to bolster the Kaiserliche Marine there. The way I see it: "Only a miracle could save Germany and the CP right now".!

Italy:

Sent the AH pre-dreadnaught over to Toulon, planning on a amphibious landing there with the Corsica AH garrison. Bombed Nice. In case you were wondering what the AC is doing in Italy? It's positioned to either run back to Florence or Rome where ever needed in case of an emergency. Same could be said with the SG at Cattaro, it can cover Cattaro or Cetinje if needed. My biggest fear is of English transports, for the eastern Mediterranean has been totally neglected several turns now.

North Africa:

Bombarded Oran with the AH AC then advanced the German garrison with naval escorts to possibly capture this city. The Sfax AH garrison is marching on Mareth for a possible capture, or also to prevent French deployments, while the other garrison clears territory to have RR from west to east here (Algiers to Tunis). I'm a little surprised not to see enemy units.!

Baltic:

Counter-attacked English sub fleets, not much damage either way. Repaired what's possible and bombarded the Russian AC. German high command issued orders to hold positions to the last man or become POWs, as you know the Russians do not take prisoners. Funny, last night I did a little research about WW I and did come across an article about the different prisoners of war during WW I and how it took years for many to be released after the war. The Russians were so poor and disorganized that a large percentage of the 3 million or so CP prisoners starved to death. The infantry in Riga spoiled plans to capture that city.

Eastern Front:

Finally captured Vilna..! Threw everything at the Russian defenders, artillery, fighters, zeppelin and successive infantry attacks annihilating all who were left. Considering going after Minsk next, they have the least defenders and will cut the rail-line from Vinnytsia where there are a lot of troops. If the southern flank holds and Minsk is captured, the northern flank will head towards Riga. The Russians have lost a lot of units during this entire offensive, but that does not prevent them from producing more. It's been almost 2 years of non-stop fighting and it is taking it's toll on both sides.

Economic Deterioration: The game has a built in accelerated economic deterioration towards AH, it's a lua file I have yet to explore. As far as I am concerned AH has been one of the more successful factions in this match. They have conquered all of Serbia's cities, they have captured cities in Italy, Corsica and a number of French cities in North Africa and have lost no cities of their own. Yes, some of their Serbian cities have been bombed by the Russians. AH has not lost very many units, although they have lost several at the Western Front recently and 1 near Libya, plus a few by Lemberg, not a lot overall as far as I am concerned to trigger economic deterioration of this magnitude. Guess I am going to have to research this issue..

The game has a NO built in "accelerated" economic deterioration towards AH.

AH has simply lost 33% of her total manpower due to your glorious leadership skills.

Every nation in the game suffers the same from losing manpower.

Western Front:

Found that Class I English tanks do not last long after being pounded by class VI German artillery and fighter sorties. German ground units swarmed the tanks killing the tank crews and blowing up the infernal machines. Kaiserliche Marine dreadnaught bombarded a English fighter base in Leeuwarden destroying the unit. Deployed a fresh garrison at Frankfurt and repaired many other units expecting to do battle with the remaining English tank corp. The French managed to fight their way into Stuttgart capturing the city and killing the AH defenders. The AH line at this part of the front looks to be the most likely to break and least fortified. In their favor is a larger AH fighter force, yet scant reserves. During the latest engagement a French fighter base near Strassburg was down to I or 2 strength and was finished off with AH air-ship bombing runs out of Italy.

Italy:

Bombed Paris from here with a zeppelin. The Corsica transport arrived outside Toulon ready to disembark next turn should the French not occupy the city, meanwhile the AH pre-dreadnaught gave a preliminary bombardment of Marseille to weaken the AT there. Keep an eye on the AH sub fleet progress up by Brest..

North Africa:

CP captured 2 more French cities here, first the Germans took Oran after defeating a very weak French AT, the second city Mareth was a walk-in for an AH garrison. All toll; The French have lost 15 PP during the North African CP campaign, not counting another 3 PP lost at Corsica, bringing the total lost production to 18 PP overall. CP fleets are sailing east seeking new targets or for scouting. You will read why in following posts.

Russian Surrender:

At the end of turn 55 the Russians made a surrender offer, I do not think my eyes had a chance to blink before hitting the "accept" button, it happened real quick..!! Before I even had a chance to take a SS, I was so elated to get this offer and did not expect it. The Russian surrender means a -25 NM to remaining Entente active factions. What contributed to the surrender offer was the capture of Warsaw, Novo-Georgievsk, and Brest-Litovsk, The surrender of Italy and Serbia, and the loss of the Russian dreadnaught events: Totaling -65 NM to Russia. the remaining -35 NM must have been a result of combat losses combined with the Russian economic situation. This is the miracle that CP has been hoping for..!! As in the actual Great War CP units will start heading west to bolster the Western Front. The Bulgarians will also benefit from armies now destined to ramp up the war on their front.. This surrender also denies the Baltic English sub fleets a port into which they could do repairs and not only that eastern and northern Baltic waters will be more than 30 hexes away from a friendly Entente port causing English fleets to lose morale rapidly. There were also other developments that occurred because of this surrender that will be explained in following posts.

West Baltic:

Much of the Baltic Kaiserliche Marine are sailing for the North Sea to take on the English Royal Navy. Some of the fleet will remain behind to escort and protect supply convoys. Helsinki and Tallinn will remain under German control, hopefully those cities will start producing production points soon.

Bulgaria:

Bulgaria is also celebrating the Russian surrender that returned occupied Bulgarian lands back to their country. Not only that: The Russians also had to forfeit all captured OE cities and land resulting in OE having borders once again, however as a neutral faction. This put the English in an undesirable position of being cut off from a friendly capital city (ie. Constantinople), leaving English armies in Bulgaria at half supply... I tried to demonstrate this by highlighting the new OE borders and stars to indicate what territory they now possess, with an arrow pointing to the most "critical hex" to the English. Of course the English could have DOW'd OE once again to bust through to Constantinople, "however" Now they would have to actually face a faction that can actually build and move an army under CP control. Gee! Why should that change their strategy from how they conducted the war here earlier??? Perhaps the English do not have any troops in the conquered OE lands..!! Yes, that would present a logistical problem..

France Surrenders:

Again I was shocked at the end of CP's turn (56) a French surrender offer was made.. Again I was in disbelief, again my reflexes were faster than my brain in accepting the offer, not taking the time to take a SS of the Event. Going from near defeat with a broken economy to being a victor here was humbling experience.! With the surrender came the liberation of Netherlands and Belgium as neutral factions and the near complete disbandment of the French army/navy/air-force say/except 1 French AT down by Toulon, France was defenseless. What contributed to France's downfall was the surrenders of Serbia -10 NM, Italy -15 NM, Russia -25 NM and the French dreadnaught sinking -20 NM = totaling -70 NM to France. The remaining -30 NM to France had to be a combination of combat losses and it's economic situation to bring France to "0" NM. As it is right now: "England is on it's own against CP" France also had to return Metz, Strassburg, Dortmund and Stuttgart to Germany plus all occupied lands. Despite the surrender and reparations Germany's economy was somewhere between 7 to 13 PP per turn. Berlin is down to 13 from 38 due to English bombing.. This turn did a general westward advance, while giving thought on what to strategize next. Sank a English light cruiser fleet off the Dutch coast.

Baltic:

Set up to protect the supply convoy that spawned up north last turn, placed surface fleets to make it difficult for the English subs to get a jump on the convoy. These subs did attack a CP transport, thus prevented it from sailing west, so had to disembark to wait for another opportunity to leave town. At first thought the fleets here were Kiel Canal bound, but realized that Germany needed PP more than having optional naval battles. What CP needs is PP to buy transports, RRs, infrastructure improvements and to buy back tech labs, all of which is going to cost a fortune.

Central Mediterranean:

Feeling bold now, made one of my biggest mistakes in this match: "Attacking and sinking an English convoy"..! No, I did not really want the USA on the march to war, anyhow threw caution to the wind and did it anyway.. Sent the Corsica garrison transport eastward with the intent to capture Izmir or Gallipoli, as well as other CP fleets headed east. My impression of the English: Is that they are rich.! And are prepared to defend England itself. I also feel that to contain England CP has to eliminate the English colonies first, starting from Turkey , then working west to squeeze the English out of the Mediterranean so I do not have to defend a back door while being committed to an actual invasion of the English homeland. This looks to be the beginning of one long drawn out process.

Bulgaria:

Gearing up here to finish off the trapped half supplied English army. Am also considering going after Romania once the Bulgarian mission is completed. If a diplomat screen is not shown this turn it will be next turn showing Romania is at red 1 on the march to war and also do not want them at my rear when the showdown starts in England. This all has to with logistics and to build up CP factions with sources of PP.

I wonder what morale Britain had left at this point.



You know I respect your analitical savy about this game, especially when explaining scripts in layman terms. The big difference between England and it's former allies is that it has not lost a Dreadnaught, it's economy has not been been heavily attacked (reduced PP per turn) very minor hits, When comparing posts #394 and post #403 Casualties chart England has less than 1000 casualties (approximately 900 at present) simular to France's at surrender, although France's MP may have had a lower MP then than England has now due to all the 2 MPs England recieved from each successful Supply convoy run (far more than the French). Not sure if England gains MP from capturing 14 OE cities that are producing PP, none the less England's economic output has to be far greater than it's original. If mrdozer is not maxing out England's PP to zero every turn, then his NM should be about 5 to 10% or so, depending on if England got a NM "bump up" from OE's surrender. One other factor is: Does England's NM go up when the USA enters the war? I'll check on that, I'm sure you will too.


PS: Cannot find a script for when USA DOW on CP, although I believe the USA lands in France event bumps up France and England's NM, also I believe England's NM get's a NM bump up with the Canadians event. Do not get a clear impression on NM when the Arab Revolt happens.

The only morale-boosting event for Britain in the basic game is when US troops land in France and France has not yet surrendered.

Surrender of enemy nations does not provide morale.

USA DOWs on CP when her alignment reaches 100.
USA starting alignment is 74.
USA alignment rises 0,33 points per turn until it reaches 100 or the DOW timer "goes red".
High Entente convoy losses will accelerate this.
Without Entente convoy losses USA should always DOW on turn 78.

Netherlands:

DOW'd Netherlands to capture all it's cities and eliminate English units here. English half supply class I tank corps at Leeuwarden was the first to go after dreadnaught bombardment, sorties and infantry assaults capturing the city, the English air-ship by Amsterdam was next to go after sorties destroyed it. The rest of the country was completely occupied by CP units for a non-conditional surrender. In order for CP to get good jumping off places to assault England proper the plan is to take Belgium next then France. Not only the CP access matters in those countries, it will receive the much needed PP that will be reaped from those countries as well to buy what is necessary for a successful invasion. CP has no problems with invading these defenseless countries after what happened with the OE.. This battle for England is going to be expensive and takes time to accumulate the right forces to get the job done. Ordered new cruisers that take 12 turns to be deployed. Because England has a huge air-force and tanks, guess what? CP needs to increase it's number of labs to be competitive, also to create labs where none exist now. Take note that CP also has to have some kind of defense against English air-ship bombing runs, that have ravaged the German economy. Even though CP can build a juggernaut it has to have some way to get across the English Channel in force. This is going to be an WW I "Operation Sea-Lion".

Mediterranean:

CP needs to gather information with naval forces to see what is occupied and what is the best location to capture next. Since the majority of naval forces here is AH Izmir is of prime importance, not only because it will deprive England of a PP source, but it can be a port for repairs and upgrading of AH fleets, for it is not known if England has produced any warships or submarines for this region, also at Izmir a garrison can go over-land to capture Gallipoli and prevent English transports from easily reaching Constantinople... Bombarding Malta has 2 effects: One it eliminates PP temporarily, second it is less likely the garrison there will amphib out knowing enemy warships are near-by. Remember England has 2 transport points, other nations do not, however that is about to change as CP nations accumulate wealth.

The reduction of the English army here has begun and once completed, other CP units should be in place to go after Iasi and Bucharest. CP is going to commit to over running Romania, then south to Greece. CP needs ports in order to transport heavier units than AH garrisons into the Turkey arena.

Belgium Surrender:

The re-conquest of Belgium went smoothly, opening another port at Antwerp for CP. Fleet action off the Dutch coast has the English Royal Navy in a pickle, Kaiserliche Marine are going full steam from the Baltic to join this battle. Meanwhile spread out fighters to assist protecting cities from bombing runs. It will be a few turns before invading France, next turn will finish mopping up Belgium territory. AH units upgraded as German units start to arrive from the now defunct Eastern Front. Take note of Romania's status in the information panel..

Mediterranean:

AH sub fleet movement radar must have picked up on an unidentified enemy naval presence on the Libyan coast. one fleet would have gone to investigate, discovered it was an English tank corp in transport, called in help to sink transport. Another sub fleet scouted Izmir to report the coast is clear for an amphibious landing there. The AH transport could not make the Turkey coast this turn. Bombarded Malta. The AH pre-dreadnaught sailed east to support the Izmir landing. After the CP action off Libya got me to thinking; What else are the English up to? (best to keep an eye on their ports here for other activity). CP's problem here is not having enough naval assets?
