- My fault I should have started with a fresh file instead of the one you had sent over at the start.

Die roll for Belgrade siege, staggered for Aug.:
41 4/26/2017 3:20:00 PM August 1914 Central Powers Message 2 things:
I believe I have a siege roll at Belgrade. The other thing is the original attack on Belgrade, which I had to check. Your replacement for the Allies, "1", is applied to the Serbs, and you note you flipped SB1 to its full strength. I'm thinking SB1 was eliminated in battle for Belgrade (losing "5" it was flipped and removed, SBc taking the 5th hit, also flipped). So the RP that you applied to SB1, couldn't be applied since it isn't in Belgrade nor Salonika to restore the army. So, SBc is at full strength. Please advise. I'll roll for the Belgrade fort.

Remember your French MO so you don't lose a VP...if the game gets close this could be my last MO warning to you!
35 4/25/2017 1:25:00 PM August 1914 Allies Message I can see it would tend to focus more on the historical results/events. I'm sure the balance is good with as much as it's been played.

I'm just thinking it does take away some of the what if situations.

The world is shocked by the actions of your armies in Belgium btw. :-)

29 4/22/2017 1:59:00 PM August 1914 Central Powers Message Jeff, you're exactly right. The Near East was once a myriad of strategies involving the different units. Now the game is more focused on the western front and the occupation and removal of French and Belgium territories.
28 4/22/2017 12:43:00 PM August 1914 Allies Message Okay we should be all set now.

Interesting quirk with the Vassal module. They put the VP changes in on the board - however if you hit the hide units button to see what's under them it also hides the changes, kind of defeats the purpose. Most likely they put the changes in as an overlay and then didn't create a multi level hide button like ASL uses.

Interesting changes with the VP's, looks like it took the points away from the middle east and added them to the western front. I would think that would have totally changed the way the game is played, as opposed to the way it was designed.

I'm thinking that decreases to a large extent the value of any cards that impact the middle east.

Might also increase the learning curve and ability to bring new players into the fold. Kind of like the loss of those players of SL who didn't make the jump to ASL when it came out back in the day.

22 4/21/2017 9:53:00 AM August 1914 Central Powers Message Need some clarification: I am assuming you played the event card wrong last turn and that you wanted to play it as British reinforcements. You understand you nor I can get reinforcements in August. I am assuming that you want to play it as replacements then. If you want to change it to something else, please let me know and as long as you don't march into Berlin maybe I'll be ok with it.
I will advance A5 into Belgrade, besieging the fort.
Also, there are many changes in the VP cities playing the historical version. If you cannot find the changes, refer to the historical handout I passed out at PrezCon in February. If you don't have the changes send me a fax or your address and Ill get a sheet to you!

One AH unit and up to 2 GE corps may stack together and be Activated for a cost of 1 OPS point. A different stack may be chosen each Action Round. If a second AH unit or a second non-GE corps unit is present, then the activation cost is 2 OPS points. This event does not supercede rule 12.1.11.

I note that you have a mandatory attack with the French and a likely attack would be Strasbourg. Hence, beefing it up.

11 4/17/2017 2:07:00 PM August 1914 Central Powers Message Just to clarify:
FRC is the full strength French corps. It's good advice to get into the habit of listing the total corps left in the Reserve Box once you use it. For instance, your French corps taken from the reserve box now leaves 6 full strength corps left, with 0 half strength left. Simplified could be written as Fc from rb 6/0. G2 and G3 adv to Sedan
