Hi,

The first thing is the small garrisons. They cost maintenance and aren't really that useful.
I disbanded all the German and Autro-Hungarian small garrisons.
I disbanded some of the Turkish ones and left most of the others since they have lots of coastline and other areas to protect.
I tried to build just enough units so I could push in the West, Serbia and stabilize the Eastern front.
Otherwise I was putting production into production of shells/ammo and research.
I see manpower as the most important resource in the game since you only have so much.
So really what I want is to build up my force quality so hopefully I won't loss as much manpower through out.
I was starting November and had taken Brussels, Liege and Belgrade. I also encircled Warsaw with about seven Russian units.
I like this move as part of stabilizing the Russian front.

For the next patch the Small Garrison will resort back to being a free unit,something they were always intended to be, they were created to represent your Countries Home Guard, and as such were made up of members of a nations population, that were to old for front line duty in the Army etc. when the game was first released, most Cities were left undefended, as they contained no Garrisons for protection, and far to often, because of fog of war, Cities were being captured far to easily. Hence the sole reason for the creation of the Small Garrison, these units can't stray very far from the City they start from, they can't be transported by Rail or Sea. So as I said earlier, they will revert back to what they were created for, as free units, that cost you NOTHING! They can't be purchased,they cost zero manpower or Upkeep. They were designed to give a player peace of mind Knowing that all your Cities behind they front line had some protection.

No, the thought occurred to me after posting the last post that Steam does "automatic updates". Many like myself update manually. Regardless, if you are new to the game, use the best version. If what Kirk is going to do in the next patch holds true, there is going to be a lot of members "Who are going to be changing their strategies on how to play the game", myself included.

Small Garrisons will cost NOTHING! In the next huge game play patch I'm working on, I want City protection to be a major issue for each Country. As it stands at the present time,only protecting your Capital Cities is what concerns most gamers, I think all your Cities should be vitally important to protect. Also on new Commanders for the game, at the last count there are now 150 Commanders, that's 100 more than, is available now, every Country in the game will have at the very least a couple of Generals.
