October 10, 1914:
The Russian army is in full retreat. Their only hope is the 4 chits in trench warfare that may eventually slow the Huns down. Poland is lost. Permanent losses are 1 detachment, 1 cavalry corp, 4 infantry corps. They will be dearly missed.
The French have Belgium, but any successful offensive is impossible given the terrain.
Serbia, as expected, has fallen.
Well done Bavre. Some serious changes are necessary.
mdsmall and I have been working on these problems for two months mainly behind the scenes with a mod. We have also been doing tests..and are in the final stages of some minor tweaks. On top of that...I am recording them for YT.
Mainly, it solves the Montenegro and Serbia component...the Russia First component, possible early Entente intervention in Northern Greece and somethings for the Ottomans around the Dardenelles.
In parallel I have the understanding that the Devs have stuff cooking...but I'm not sure how much mirrors what we are doing.
I do know with the mod test we are doing, that if the CP decides to do a Russia First...it still will be potentially rough for Russia...but the Russians will get a DEC if certain conditions happen so as to have the options of deploy their mobilizated units further back on the beginning turns. Makes sense too, as the bulk of these troops were called up not in Poland, but the far reaches of Russia...then trained in.
There's also provisions for an early Entente intervention in Northern Greece if certain conditions are met if there is an quick collapse of Serbia.
The railines out of Sarajevo and Pec to the coast were removed, and this made Montenegro, particularly Cetinje, more inaccessible...and realistic.
For The Ottomans, coast guns are provided for placement options near Chanak.
A new convoy route for Serbia via Salonika can happen if Cetinje falls, and Serbia's army is tweaked slightly stronger.
There are other things not mentioned...and I have two pages of notes from mdsmall, who did all the script work. We are ready to test an updated version with one of us doing a strong 'Bavre style' Russia First/Serbia Crush strategy...and I will be recording it for upload as soon as possible mindful of FoW as it will be on YT.
Cheers, Old Crow
