The WW1 part of Stategic Command has two parts: The basic game and one expansion (Break through).
This combination offers a good (IMHO) game experience. There is a diplomaty option, which is better than in Commander
and everybody, who is interessted in this time period should have a serious look into this game.

Well, the graphics are awfully outdated. But the gameplay is very pleasant. Not sure it is the game I'm looking for. Will spend some more hours testing.

Read through some of the AARs and Topics, ect.., Yes I saw some drawbacks also some interesting play. I really can't comment too much till getting immersed into the game, it does have a printable PDF manual, "NO" printed manual with game, which I think kinda stinks (A Trogon Horse cost). Hey! If there is no improvements being done with CTGW, "Total lack of support", plain and simple, I'm going to look elsewhere for a similar style game that is supported. If the dev's there are willing to work with the community, come up with changes that better the game: "I'm all for it"..!!! If it's a bomb, it's a bomb. My other choice was getting Battle Academy 2 Kursk (released April 2015) (some really good video AARs have swayed me quite a bit), however Slitherine is dropping developing that game also, and at $50.00 for a base disc BA 2, then another $30.00 for the Kursk expansion, $80.00 all total, plus shipping for a game that may or may not be supported in the near future, did not make for a great selling point to me, for I "Do not want another game that is not supported, either now or in the near future".

I have seen you at the Battllefront Forum.😀
So I hope you will have some interessting hours with the game. I had them....
The sequence is a little bit different, but as soon as you get used to it, it will be fun.
And: the developers are still active with feedback and support.

I have really enjoyed that game. It offers more depth than CTGW but is still very easy to play, just right for a only-kind-of-hardcore wargamer such as myself. There's also a fun 1870 Franco-Prussian War scenario in addition to the WW2 scenario and of course the WW1 stuff.

I've thought about getting Strategic Command WW2 as well but I'm confused by the pile of expansion options. Probably hold out for the new one, or see if Hearts of Iron 4 turns out good.

SCWW1 in a bundle with the expansion for 55 USD seems to be seriously overpriced in my eyes for a 5 yo game.

Ya know, I have been playing SCWWI the past 3 weeks (or more) day and night in SP, much to the chagrin of some MP opponents I have here (to them I owe an apology), however, the scale of this old game as you call it, has a lot of similarities to CTGW, but on a different scale and a boat load of different scenarios to pick from. Personally, I really like CTGW, I only wished they had done scenarios like the ones SCWW1 has, plus, the Dev's actually answer your questions! The diplomacy in this game blows CTGW away, although I found that CTGW is easier to manage overall.

PS.

By the way: The expansion for that game is well worth the money.

Battlefront really doesn't have the super sales on games and often the prices stay the same for. Years. However, the games they make are good, they have a good forum and mods developed for most games. I have the global conflict game and they have a mod for just eastern front based on one of the board games with similar counters. I can't remember the game though from board game. I have bought many of the games since they came online. Barbarous to Berlin was my favorite

Does this look familiar to you? CP invading France without going through neutral Belgium...

Hi Bob, This will be the only screen shot I will post on here regarding Strategic Command WW1 Breakthrough. I have been busy creating a scenario, and here is a photo off details for the German Dreadnought Helgoland class.

You guys make me wanna give it a try... but still I think it is overpriced. I wish those guys at battlefront would gain enough attention to enlarge their selling interface. I read that this is in fact planned. Battlefront could really benefit from a decent push towards a level that Slitherine/Matrixgames already and successfully achieved. Take the fact that Slitherine/Matrixgames are finally selling stuff via Steam. Not saying that Steam is the highest level of success that every company should logically aim for but it certainly is a milestone when determining a developers ability to sell games.

Hey, your not the only one who "dickers" about game pricing, it all depends on what you want... I'd like to get BA Kursk, Ahh! There's a catch! The buyer has to pay $50.00 for the base game BA 2, then buy BA Kursk for another $30.00, Gee! That's $80.00 for a game that is "NOT" in development anymore by Slitherine, anyhow, I'd still like to get the game, "Only if it is on SALE" in box form. OK, Now I look over this game Strategic Command WW I with the Breakthrough expansion for $55.00 bundle --BOXED, I'm a little ticked off at the owners of CTGW, but I like the WW I genre, so I decided to move along and give SCWWI a try, and you know what?: I'm happy I did! The Dev's actually communicate with their customers! Unlike the meatheads who own CTGW!

For those of you who have had issues with in game diplomacy check out this screen from SCWWI: Breakthrough, where a side can purchase chits to influence nations instead of the convoluted system that is used in CTGW.

Many times I have read in the CTGW forums that the members wanted to know the production (PP) or management of all sides during the course of the game including MP, NM, ect.. These graphs will show you all that information, all a player has to do is select which graph (which there is a number of) for any nation, at any time during a game. There also is another screen that shows "What Units" are in the production queue and when those units are expected to be ready for deployment: FOR EVERY NATION at any time. This is what I know in SP, I don't know yet if all this info is available in MP, have not gotten that far.
