Do you realize, since HL has been played, the additional trench busters could force a space in the allied lines? - with the breach at Belfort, this could mean cutting the entire French army OOS. Still requires a successful move/attack, but certainly could be a game-ending type result.

Message from Central Powers:
I would not have attacked with the NE alone, if Kemal was possibly out there. Since it can't take RPs, that's a big reduction in offensive power if the army can't advance after combat.

Regarding Romania - I like to play it for the event if FoTT is possible, but I think you needed the RPs as well. Definitely tradeoffs both ways, and I've played it both ways before. Given that I don't have units (before RPs) to cover its entry, might have tried it. Then again, Russia isn't in a good position and cannot send armies to help defend the VPs. Toss-up.
