Am playing as the Entente and it is February 1915. I was looking forward to my full strength Canadian Corps with full research to show up in Bristol but it seems they missed the boat. In fact, reading the fine print, it seems that if Britain has not fully mobilized on October 10, 1914 (e.g. because Germany has decided not to invade Belgium), the DE does not fire so the unit never spawns - even though the UK is certain to go to war, along with Canada and the rest of the Empire, by the next turn.
This seems unfair! I say this as both the Entente player and a Canadian! The UK gets all these other imperial units - Indians, ANZACs etc. - but just because the date of this DE is set for one specific day in October, the heroes of Vimy Ridge decide to stay at home and read all about the action in the newspaper??
Could the trigger for this DE be adjusted so that it fires at the first point on or after October 10, 1914 when the UK is at full mobilization?
