If the Centrals really can force a cut of both rail lines into Poland then the Russian units in Poland are serious trouble. Their supply goes way down and they are weak. Really interested to see.
As I said in other threads, the Austrians really should entrench that corps southeast of Belgrade, which your Serbians attacked. Not entirely sure whether Serbia should attack it or not if it's left unentrenched, but in any case why risk it if you can entrench by doing the swap trick. I'm also not sure whether abandoning Belgrade is the best move or not. The Serbians need more time to reinforce and entrench, which Austria should not let them have.
Yeah...I'm going to try to stop that at Lutsk...and I have other plans.
In Serbia...the first test I left that detachment in Belgrade and he by passed it for my corps. This time I attacked and almost destroyed one of his corps and used the detachment as a blocker. Still, if I knew Cetinje couldn't be taken until turn 3, when Albania comes in...I would do something entirely different down there.
You pointed out a long time ago about Albania staying neutral after the turn 2 surrender of Montenegro as bad for the Central Powers. Well, it's even worse for the Entente paradoxically!
Oh well, if Bavre makes any mistakes elsewhere, I maybe able to mitigate a little this thing. Honestly, this test needs to go out to mid 1915...because in the last test, by turn 4...Germany only had about 450 mmp in research, and the UK had 950+. France was also moving along, but she spend MMP's on transports and operational movement to ports to get to Albania...which didn't work out..so I sent them to Egypt.
The thing is, I am not sure about the long term implications of the M-Gambit on the Entente...but the early term is definitely bad...almost unrecoverable I think.
This match I have something different in mind..but it's going to take longer than 4 turns possibly.
