Hi. We start another game with small mod.
Things changed- Russia NM drop in 1916 and revolution events will came later- I hope
To trigger US to war CP need to destroy 100 pp in convoys
Subs cost is now 35 and starting naval attack is higher- 3.
Rest is "oryginall" so the war will be very intensive at some point :D

Here is the situation after couple of first turns.
CP strike hard in France and after intense and bloody fights (French lost 4 garissons and 2 corps- Germans lost 2 corps if I remember correct.
In Serbia I've maid en error and after intense fight I'have lost Belgrade but my lines holds for now. I've maid some attacks to down AH production.
In Russia I wanted to do a "recon by fire" and AH took me by surprise. I have lost cavalry corps and garrison and was forced to withdraw. I want to defend in Russia. Maybe it will be a deep defence...
At the sea my DD fall into a trap so great naval battle started. Entente lost one BB nad one DD same as CP (If I remember correct.)
My plan is to force CP to put as many resorces and atention as they can at eastern front whil western alliance prepare 1915 offensive- I will try to finish war quick.
From now I will try to post news from front lines every day.

This is taken from your turn 7. It highlights the very reason I hate the standard naval game with a passion, so I never play a bog standard game ever its rubbish naval wise.This close blockade by the British surface fleet of the coast of Germany, early in the war in reality was impossible to achieve, and yet in this game its simple and straight forward, what part do the game designers, who tested this game not understand if the British Admiralty thought it was a suicide mission to attempt, with losses by Submarine and Destroyer torpedo attacks one off the main reasons it was impossible to do, without Britain handing Germany her naval supremacy on a plate. Nelson would turn in his grave with disgust, the games basic naval game is RUBBISH TOTAL AND UTTER DROSS!

Germanys defence network GREEN DOT AREA should ensure that the British attacking fleet would take unsustainable losses.

29 OCT to 12 NOV 1914

French pusch forward. I will try to use a hole near the Strassburg. I will cros the reaver and attack the city. If there will be a possibility I will try to advance to Stuttgard. I can see that CP has small force in this area.
At last I will force Battlevonwar to move his units to close this hole. I can see a lot of German's cavalry on both fronts.
In Russia Brest-Litovsk is lost. CP has sorrounded it and it's only a matter of time- I think that CP will launch an assault at winter- now thay want to hit as much as thaty can. I will try to use their errors to strike back where I can. Second picture from this front shows a successfull counterattack. AH sits quiet at both fronts- Russian's and Serbian's... BVW is planning something....

26 NOV 1914

French took Stuttgart! Germans hole in the line enable me to make a deep strike int their land. I've got abot 2 or 3 turns before counterattack (I think they will try to cut my forces at the Switzerland border). Next turn I will scout with my fighter squadron and maybee I will be able to take something more. This offensive made a big impact to on Germany's production! If only Russia could survive.
In Russia ther are lot of manuvers. Tzar's army counterattack on advancing CP force destrying infantry and cavalry (Germans) corpses at Vilna... but Russian's commanders have made some bad moves in the heat of fights leaving road open to strike arty (my bad move). Next turn there will ba lot of manuvers too.
Russians strike at Vinnytsia sector too. Maybe it's my mistake but I want to kill as much as I can befor winter and than retreat to deeper positions. Victory or death!
Quiet in the Balkans...

Quiet...
Only Serbians attacked two AH cities to keep production down.
Russians regroup and takeing new positions. There will be no offensive in winter. I have to be ready If BVW will try to push through marshes... Front line is to long to maintain army that cover it all so I will have to build nests of defence.
French repaired damaged units. German Arty is sent to Verdun sector, also Antwerp is neutral... Germans will strike as I said to cut me at Switzerland border I think...

Quiet...
Only French attacked Germans cavalry corps. It looks like BVW will try to retake Stuttgart. I will try to hold as much as I can and same time prepare an offensive to Belgium direction.
In Russia CP push slowly through marshes...

7 JAN 1915

Germans retook Stuttgart! I wasn't think that it would be that fast... I was thinking that winter could help me and art with lowered effectines will be not enough but I was wrong. At last I could see that AH arty gave support in this attack. I have saved Serbians of a little longer but this can be important. Otherwise quiet.

[image][/image]


21 JAN 1915.
Quiet. French forces withdraw to safer positions.
Ottoman Empire push forward into Russia. I have to do something about it. I've just started to build fighter squadron to have an ability to recon CP.
If there will be no problems Im planning to lounch Western offensive in May.

For now First Russians Revolution will start under two conditions if NM drop to level of 60% or lower and there have to be at last 1916. It means that if Russians NM will be for example 61% in late 1916 they will still fight without revolution.
First Revolution down morale -20%
Second Revolution starts after Russians NM reach level of 20% or lower- then they got - 10%.
That are changes about Russia.

If I'm correct "Oryginal game" has first Revolution event at 1916 if morale level 80% or less. They have the - 30% NM penalty
Second revolution start from level 40% or lower and cause - 35%

Now I have 76% so if we would play "oryginal" and there was 1916 I should have after both Revolutions 1%!!!
This impact is to big.
for now situation isn't so bad for me (with this mod) but I'm thinkig about changing it a bit more- If BVW wanted to destroy my Russians battleship (I can't do nothing to save it if he make blockade at the start of war with Russians) i should have 66%
so he would be 6& before triggering first Revolution in January of 1916...

Please see photo below regarding Russian February Revolution event.

First red arrow highlights the start date = 1917 ( NOT 1916 )

Second red arrow highlights Russian morale at that date.

Third red arrow shows a 10 points boost to Russian morale, and not a reduction to morale as the current 1.30 patch. ( February Revolution was a good thing for Russia, and had a galvanising effect on the people )

NB: I have contacted Lordzimoa with the hope that these changes, can be implemented into the up and coming patch, so that the Russian Revolution problem can finally be put to bed.

Another important National Morale that has been changed since the original game release, is the Morale Surrender Base level.

In the original game manual this level was zero for all Countries, then in the 1.30 patch it was increased to 30, I have reduced it so that no Country will surrender until the Morale Base Level is 10.

Don't get me wrong; My France was at 2% for a couple of turns, before bombing brought it down to "0%", then came surrender.

Ottoman Empire forced me to retreat. I don't want to be cut off.
Otherwise quiet.
I was trying to capturp Antwerp but Germans was first. Their subs attack my garrison at sea but revange was at my side. I've destryed them.
[image][/image]




18 MAR 1915

CP launched a surprise attack on Netherlands. They captured capitall and soon will have all of the cities. I will try to make a landing with British forces and at last keep them busy. My units all almost ready to beginning offensive in the west.
Also I will try to capture Antwerp again.
Russians push forward in the southern sector. I will make attacks on both fronts- first will strike brave Tsar's soldiers. Than West Allied will attack. I hop that this will be to much for CP.

Is that your changes on morale level to surrender are enough? In "oryginal game" with 1.30 countries fight until they are 0%. Check your changes because there is something wrong I think... Also- if I'm correct some of events take place if the NM level is under 30%...

15 APR 1915

I forgot to take pictures last turn... Russian counterattack failed. I was only able to kill some garrisons and one cavalry unit. It looks like I've killed my army! Initiative is at CP side for now.
I have to withdraw and regroup but I thinks that there is to late. If Germans will strike hard they can crush my army. I will try to stop them as long as I can. Also on southern sector AH arty starts to support AH ground units.
Netherlands surrendered and I had to withdraw British from this sector. Germans prepared ambush on my fleet and losses are heavy... I have sunk Germans convoy and move fleet to safer waters.
In France I have made a breach (German cavalry and garrison destroyed). There are some reserves in Netherlands and I hope BVW will be unable to move it from there into fight this turn (there are lot of cavalry) I have to force him to retreat from trenches- f so I will launch full offensive there. If Germans use cavalry to block my way I can massacre them with my arty.
Also I'm ready to make a small push towards Split to make AH busy.
I need Italians to save Russia!

France.

Heavy fights. British lost 2 infantry and one cavalry corps. French two infantry corps. I'm prepareing new offensive on Strassburg. For now I will sit quiet because of my gas upgrade. If I will use it first I will speed Bulgarians entry which would not be nice.

Italy

Italy entered war with small German ambush prepared at their borders. Bu it seems that most of the troops where gathered to front with haste and they are at poor condition. I was trying to use it and launch a limited offensive to kill some CP soldiers and to down Trieste production.
Last turn (8 JUL) I didn't took a picture becouste there were no moves.

Serbia

Successeful attack on Catarro convinced me to take Split. I have sent there fresh reinforcements (Italians and British) but last turn before landing Germans arrived. I was forced to cancel operation. Now I'm preparing defence against Bulgarians. Also AH took their arty from southern Russia- I feel that BVW wants to finish Serbia- I will fight!

22 JUL 1915

CP used gas first. I means that Romania and Portugal enter war sooner (if Russia survive). Germans tried took Helsinki by surprise. My garisone which should go to South front (Ottoman) had to be put in defence there. Russians South sector of european front didn't sucedded. Also moved back a liitl with my forces at Vilna.
French are ready to begun offesive.
Otomans push forward.
Italy run out of steam. (Italian AH fleet sunk)
In Serbia I'm building defence line against Bulgarians.

[image][/image]









5 AUG 1915

Frnech strike near Strassburg. First I wanted to take hex northest from the city to gain another dirresction of attack. But my arty isn't so powerful to brake garrison.
AH arty back in russian southern sector (of the easten front). Good to see this becouse it means that there is no arty on Serbians front.
Germans start attack at northern sector of front in Russia.
Ottomans push forword and take Stavropol.








19 AUG 1915

Strike at Strassburg. At last production of the city is owned to 0. We will see what will happen.
Germans still attacking at northern sector in Russia. I don't know how long I can hold.
Attack to retake Stavropol.
Otherwise quiet.
Sorry for short entrys but I'm busy and I had a backlog. I will try to poot more detail next time (If I will have time :D )

2 SEP 1915.
Quiet. Allmoust no moves. I'm building my line in Serbia. Same time I'm prepareing strike to eliminate Bulgarians from war. I will attack on Belgrade from Serbia and from southern coast of Bulgaria. I have one infantry corps on it's way to take possitions.
First I will try to gain as mych hexes from which I can attack Belgrade. If therewill be a posibility I will down it's production. Next, when british arty arrive I will make an assault


[image][/image]


16 SEP 1915

CP start to bombard french possitions at southern sector of the western front. I had to switch corps and garrison. I will make a fake attack to drag their attention.
In Russia I will retake Stavropol nex turn and try to maintain a line of defence. I have to hold for about 12 turns until Romania enter war. Portugal will be nice welcomed too :D

Stavropol retaken. Nothing more to say.

[image][/image]



14 OCT 1915
Plane have changed- I decided to attack Bulgaria before they enter war. I will try to inflict as much damage to their capital as I can before city will be entrenched. Then I will wait until British arty arrive. Also British infantry corps is ready to deplay at southern Bulgarian coast.
Same time Italians attack and mad small brake. I expect this is the end of my advance.
Same time Russians made small pressure. Otherwise quiet.

28 OCT 1915

Mostly quiet. I have to keep CP busy so small actions in France and Italy (I'm unable to make major actions). In Balkans I took Salonika with bombers to gain new sea base. And maybe fort Roupel will fall into my hands...
Also small naval battle at Galipoly- AH DD show it's presence and is still alive with 3 or 4 steps...
In Russian southern front I will loose Batumi by maybe frontline will stabilise.


[image][/image]




11 NOV 1915
In France Germans destroyed no French corps so I have to move back to maintain line. Same time I pressure in Italy. I lunched an assault at Sofia but cit corps survived at 1 step. I have no PP to attack with Serbians so I will wait for arty and make my final strike.
Blockade at Gallipoli AH DD moved to Constantinopol





25 NOV 1915

In France I cans see that CP have problems with troops s I decided to attack. French destryed Germans garisson and attacked arty. Maybe next turn I will attack with British infantry at Brussels.
In Serbia quiet. British arty is on it's way to support positions. Also Britisgh corps moved to attack Gallipoli

In Serbia all is set. we will see what will effects on next turn.
In France I think that Germans will try to destroy my French corps at forward possitions (north from Verdun)
In Russia quiet. Germans moved back arty from Northern sector of the eastern front... I have to wait and rebuild my research because with this tech I will go nowhere...
If I will not be able to finish Bulgaria I feel that Serbia soon will be attack with heavy unstopable power.

I think all is consequences of not finishing Serbia in 1914/1915. Battlevonwar focused on Russia but it looks like he hasn't defeat them and will be unable to do it. But he forced me to sell my labs (Russians and Serbians) so in 1916 Russia will be unable to make a major offensive. Serbia is slowly dying too so my time is limited. I have to finish Bulgaria or make them unable to fight to make some progress in Italy or France. I'm thinking about Ottomans... but this is far away from any big actions...

Sofia captured! Just before Christmas Serbians with support of BEF took Sofia. This should enable me to finish them in spring- I hop so. When Romania enter war I will be able to threaten AH front- if Bulgaria will be finished- if not I will have to send Romanians to support attack. After Bulgaria I will close way for Ottomans and if there will be a chance I will strike at Constantinople. This will be my main front unless any major progress in France or Italy.
On the western front pressure as well in Italy. I can't let CP prepare any counterattack- this will cost a lot of lives... but this can bring me victory. I have initiative now and I can't loose it.

[image][/image]




6 JAN 1916
Still pressure wherever I can. Russia is preparing to enter new front where they can make any progress- Romania.
BVW hide his arty so I'm afraid CP can strike in Serbia...




20 JAN 1916

Nothing special. Fights in Serbia, Italy and France.




3 FEB 1916
Small progress in Italy (risky move). In Serbia AH fall back so Serbians/Italians/ British advance.

Romania under attacked!!! CP has gathered troops and launched surprise attack on unexpecting Romanians! Bucharest has been lost! I'm prepareing my forces to defend and counterattack. I'm trying to save infantry corps near Bucharest but I don't think it will survive. At last brave Romanians stop fast advance for one turn. We will se nex tur what will BVW do- if he will strike into Russia territory I will try to make a offensive at Belgrade.
In France I have destroyed one garrison and attacked AH arty reducing it to 5 steps and forceing to retreat. main forces are near Liege so I have a chance to make some confusion...
Russia is ready to counterattack on southern part of Romanian front. Two garrisons enter next turn.
