One more question. I played several games of the original on both sides, but the USA never came even near to an entry. Anyone else with this problem?
Will US war entry be the same here as in the original?

I really never have seen US war entry level near to 40% even, no matter if I played CP oder Allies.

It mainly depends on what the Central Powers do, if they don't use Unrestricted Naval Warfare and they don't try to entice Mexico into an alliance against the USA then US mobilization will remain low.

US intervention in the war was far from guaranteed, but not provoking the US has a downside in that the UK's economy is not hit so much, and nor would Germany benefit from the National Morale boosts of using Unrestricted Naval Warfare, so the decision is in the players' hands. There are pros and cons either way.

Definitly true. I just think the way it went in RL should be much more likely then the other way in the game
I just need to let my Uboats at home (which I do as sunk german Uboats help Russians, Brits and French alike) and never have to mind with the US and A. Which is strange. The Allies should have better chances to bring them in with their actions in my opinion.

I mean, in 10-15 matches (2 of them Pbem) never ever any chance to see an american soldier. Have other players made other experiences?

I always used Unrestricted Naval Warfare at some point, as it was definitely worth doing, but maybe not everyone realized that?

The key to it was to know when to rein it in and switch to regular raiding instead. Admittedly I didn't always get it quite right, but that was half the fun of the challenge!

Apart from diplomacy, if the Central Powers are passive then it might be hard to provide rational triggers for the US to actually enter the war.

Additionally, I remember discussions on this basis from our original WWI game too, and while on the one hand it might please those playing as the Entente, if a Central Powers player has avoided annoying the US then it would be rather annoying for them to be penalized by having the US automatically enter the war anyway.
