Actually how do the losses work on this - 7 LF is kill one army and flip the corps but the BEF Corps is 2 Defence

So the way I see it the only way to take 7 LF is to kill a normal BR Army and flip its corps?

May only be played after at least one of the following has occurred: "Blucher", "Michel" or "Peace Offensive". Allied units in Italy, France and Belgium are considered one nationality for Activation for the rest of this turn (only). Rule 12.1.11 still applies.

705 6/29/2019 9:36:00 AM Spring 1918 Central Powers Message BEF has to take first hit - so it is not a bad idea. They have lasted a lot longer than in real life :-)
704 6/29/2019 9:32:00 AM Spring 1918 Allies Message I am really tempted to sacrifice the BEF to attack Brussels once again to make it harder for you to repair everything. Or do you think that this is totally stupid? The western front looks stable and a little distraction from the eastern front might make some seens.
703 6/29/2019 9:28:00 AM Spring 1918 Allies Message Even without treaty i think you can make it at least to a draw when pushing hard against Russia. VP 10 is only 3 VP spaces away. And i can't get US into play for more VPs unless we can raise the WS to 30.
702 6/29/2019 9:24:00 AM Spring 1918 Central Powers Message I agree on VP count - it looks like an AP win but lets play through and see :-)
701 6/29/2019 9:15:00 AM Spring 1918 Allies Message I would consider the treaty highly unlikely at the current stage of the game or what do you think? Getting all events in perfect order and all preconditions done seems like a "Mission Impossible" to me.
700 6/29/2019 9:09:00 AM Spring 1918 Allies Message Ok, so we agree on the following VP score...

VP spaces: +2 (assuming you take Basra)
VP events: -6 (-7 after turn 20)
VP MO: 0
VP Mutiny: +1

So we are at 7 at the moment. 11+ is CP win, 10 is a draw, 9- is AP win with Treaty of B-L. Without treaty you will need 13+ and 10-12 is a draw.

I would call even a draw a success for AP after so many rounds of bad luck and crazy dice in the battles. But now i expect a hard push against the poor Russians.

Missed MOs: IT, AH(IT), BR due event
Mutiny was ignored once
But in Summer 1917 you had a AH MO and i can't find an according attack and also asked in journal... maybe i missed something. Please check. We really need to take more care to track that stuff.
695 6/27/2019 2:49:00 AM Spring 1918 Central Powers Message I think The MO count should be +2 in my favour as there was a BR MO that was stopped by Lloyd George Event in Winter 1917 but otherwise I believe your VP count is right
694 6/25/2019 4:57:00 AM Spring 1918 Central Powers Message That is amazing - by the VP's I am sure to lose unless I retake the AH empire - I actually thought I was doing so much better at this stage considering the stable fronts and Western Front/Middle East.

Baku changed hands at the end of last turn as it was out of supply so Control would have changed to me already.

But the impact of all those Russians in Eastern Europe are quite something with the VP's.
693 6/25/2019 3:13:00 AM Spring 1918 Allies Message Yeah, i think so too, after fast-checking the log.

So it's at the moment:

VP spaces: 0 (+2 after taking Basra and Baku)
VP events: -6 (-7 after turn 20)
VP MO/Mutiny: +1

That makes a VP score of 5 at the moment, correct? Without Treaty of Brest-Litovsk event played you will need at 5 more VPs to win. I assume that you will take Basra/Baku and i will score another Bloackade VP, so will be a score of 6 without any other changes.

Anything else incorrect or missing?
692 6/25/2019 1:56:00 AM Spring 1918 Central Powers Message I seem to recall we both had a failed MO in one turn so that nets off but I think there was one FR Mutiny VP
691 6/24/2019 2:40:00 PM Spring 1918 Allies Message So with Baku and Basra you have +2 from vp spaces, but -7 from events when turn 20 gives another -1 for blockade.

Oh, i missed to check for MO and Mutiny fails...
690 6/24/2019 2:34:00 PM Spring 1918 Allies Message Start: 10 VP

AP (-1): Czernowitz, Lemberg, Cracow, Debrecen, Cluj
CP (+1): Belgrade, Antwerp, Ostend, Sedan, Brussels (What about Baku and Basra?)
Events: Reichstag +1, Blockade -4/-5, Rape of Belgium -1, Lusitania -1, Sixtus Affair -1

Chain Events: Tzar -2, US Entry +2

Did i forget anything?
