Turn 20 - April 10, 1915 - Summary
I'm going to shorten things up moving forward now that the initial turns are done and just highlight the main things each turn.

- Ottomans joined CPs
- Germans push towards Warsaw from the NW but are beginning to crumble in Galicia
- Russians capture Przemysl

Turn 26 - July 3, 1915 - Summary
- Continuing to make progress on the Eastern Front and transporting a few UK/French units to Serbia
- Western Front has stalled with both sides having level 3 trenches but Germany now has at least 1 upgraded artillery there. France will research artillery next turn and be able to get its upgraded artillery onto the field in the next few turns.

Turn 28 - July 17, 1915 - Summary
- Disaster for the CPs on the Eastern Front as 2 large salients in AH have all logistical connections now cut off and Russian troops march within 5 hexes of Budapest. This is really the first time I've seen the AI really make significant errors beyond getting just single units encircled as they should have pulled back to form more cohesive lines in the mountains. Unless the AI is able to reinforce and stabilize the situation, it could see the collapse of AH over the next few turns.
- France upgrades the first Entente artillery unit on the Western Front and will try to liberate Luxembourg next turn

Turn 30 - July 31, 1915 - Summary
- The AI does a good job of pulling all available AH units to protect the major salient but doesn't start retreating the exposed units which would seem to mean they will still lose many of these units to low supply over the next few turns
- AH pulling units to defend the salient leaves the Serbian front very weak and the Serbians encircle Belgrade which should be liberated next turn
- Luxembourg is liberated with the Entente's first upgraded artillery assault

Great AAR. Love the screenshots!

Did you use any diplomacy on Romania? Or were they simply overawed with the Russian performance in Galicia?

No diplomacy on Romania, just Galicia success and AH ceding Trieste and Trento to Italy.

Overall, I've mostly just used diplomacy on the Scandinavian countries with minimal success. I think I have around 5 chits in each Denmark, Sweden, and Norway. Diplomacy to me seems very random and tends to take quite a long time unless you're lucky.

Turn 34 - August 28, 1915 - Summary
- Entente continue to press AH hard which is down to 13% NM and units within 3 hexes of Budapest
- Surprisingly, the German and AH navies come out to fight and are able to sink a few Entente ships but then take pretty horrific casualties in the Adriatic and North Seas
- France continues to slowly advance on the Western Front with 2 upgraded artillery (1 UK, 1 French) so is able to take around 2 hexes per turn

Thanks! Its been a pretty fun game. I think it does expose a few of the weaknesses in the AI such as choosing to defend forward when its flanks are exposed and probably being overly aggressive with the CP navy. But I will give the AI credit that from a strategic assignment of units to fronts it does a pretty good job moving them around to fill where they are most needed. I also think AH ceding Trieste and Trento to Italy is almost always going to end badly for the AI but understand there might be some "chance" that it takes that decision for flavor.
