872 7/2/2020 10:35:00 AM Summer 1918 Central Powers Message Here's some possible VP math for an AP victory:

VPs:

AP:
Spaces: 0
Cards: 9 (Blockade x5, RoB, Lus, ZT, 14P)
Subtotal: 9

CP:
Spaces: 5 (Belgrade, Lodz, Warsaw, Kovno, Vilna)
Cards: 5 (Reichstag Truce, HSF, FotT x3)
Subtotal: 10

TOTAL: 11

So in this scenario CP gets 4 RU VPs, CP loses Sedan and Brussels, no one makes headway in NE and Treaty of Brest-Litovsk isn't played. It's a draw (and draws count as AP win in tournaments), even if AP bid 1 VP (which would make it 12).

I recommend looking at the final VP totals for some expert games on ACTS. Anyway, was a pleasure playing you! Always happy to chat more. (I'm quite busy these days as well, so another game perhaps isn't best for me anyway right now :) )
871 7/2/2020 10:27:00 AM Summer 1918 Central Powers Message Happy to help!

Yeah, an AP victory very often involves taking Sedan and/or Brussels. It's hard for GE to keep the other if one of them falls. And usually that happens if GE is just so bled out (which is why CP in the mid- and late game should play RPs early and often). The key is that AP has four RP streams to split losses between (BR, FR, A, RU) against just GE (and perhaps AH). It's high cost in ops but the troops are replaceable (and the greater number of AP 5-op cards helps).

I agree that RU will probably fall against a determined GE (with some exceptions). A credible threat elsewhere can really slow them down though. AP wants to prevent CP from triggering the Revolution early enough to be able to reallocate armies back west or to Italy.

NE isn't a main theater or anything like that, but it can certainly be a distraction and even source of VPs, with effort. If CP gains VPs there, though, that's a big swing.
870 7/2/2020 2:39:00 AM Summer 1918 Allies Message Max,

thank you very much for your very comprehensive feedback. Wow!

After changing to TW I had the impression that I will never achieve anything in the west besides bleeding your armies at high costs for me. Too late I started to create pressure in NE with Allenby.

After my successful offensive to Berlin I never felt that I could ever stop Russia from reatreating and finally collapsing, with or without trences in imporant spaces. If that is always the case (sooner or later) the CP have some 10 VP spaces sure (east and west combinded + Belgrade). So I wonder how the AP can win against an experienced CP player anyway.

Is it sufficient for the AP to attack Turkey (with an earlier Allenby) to collect enough VP for a victory?

Italy: I also saw that the Italians had too much support. But attacking with the french only to destroy their army for rebuild didn't feel a good idea. Obviously I was wrong.
I thought about attacking the balkan earlier - but that would mostly have affected the AH. And you had plenty of AH RP going to waste because I concentrated all my energy on Germany.

All in all still a good game from which I learned several things as I never hold out long enough to see the Tsar fall, so thank you for that!

As corona restrictions are lifted step by step I'm less at home than before and have to significantly reduce the number of games I'm in, so I don't call for a revanche yet. But I'd be happy to come back to you for another match when my spare time allows. I hope for your understanding!

Best
Tom
869 7/1/2020 4:04:00 PM Summer 1918 Central Powers Message Gahhhh, apparently there's a length limit on these! I wrote a bunch more and didn't copy it elsewhere, alas. Here's the gist of it:

--Balkans (continued): IT stack is more effective with SB support, or for helping Salonika hold until SB rebuilds a bit.
--Russia: It's very easy for RU to crumble once big GE reinfs arrive, especially if RU is spread out for attack. Can be good to keep bigger RU stacks to make it easier to bring RU back to defensive position. Kovno and Grodno are good places to hold the line, or Insterberg and Grodno. Trenches there are ideal. BR/FR offensive can take pressure off RU by making CP play 2-3 RP cards per Turn. RU early-/mid-game offensives only matter if they take Budapest or Berlin, or create a big distraction (but the main way to do that is by threatening Budapest or Berlin). Can also pivot to Budapest via Oppeln during an offensive on Berlin, if a better opportunity presents itself. In any case, if you're attacking with RU, keep your eye on the prize (Breslau doesn't matter much, for example) and think about how you'll reposition for defense once GE reinfs arrive.
Odessa--If Odessa is threatened, put an army in Caucasus. Odessa is hard to capture with an army in it. Odessa is important both for its VP and because CP's supply is easier if he captures it. Ditto for Riga, but you did well holding that.
--WS and US Entry: Make sure to get up to 30. Ideally make CP do the work (so don't generally play unnecessary WS cards before FotT; another reason to only play Salonika if you can protect it), but in this case I didn't need to get to 30, so you should've stepped in (Brusilov is a good option). Zimmerman Telegram and 14 Points are each a VP, and also there's the endgame penalty for US armies not out. If US comes early enough it can also have an impact in the West, though I wouldn't worry too much about that unless an opportunity arises.

I should add to my advice that there are people much more qualified to give advice (though I'm certainly experience and better than the average, I'm no shark). I think these general principles are sound, though.

If you want to switch sides and give it another go, let me know, but certainly no pressure.
868 7/1/2020 3:52:00 PM Summer 1918 Central Powers Message Alrighty, some thoughts. First some things I think you did well:
--You took Berlin, which is something. Might've been a little harder for me to retake without Wireless Intercepts and whatnot, but I still think it would've been difficult for you to hold. The important thing to remember with an early Russian offensive is that it's only really worthwhile if it provides a big distraction, but mainly if it takes Budapest or Berlin. (Breslau doesn't matter so much.)
--Your deck culling seemed generally good, which is quite important
--You held Verona, which is wise; IT is so much easier for CP to conquer (either when IT enters or later in the game) if Verona's trench is removed.
--The Dubno trench was a good defensive position (though I think you shouldn't have abandoned it, because Kiev fell shortly after)
--IT stack to the Balkans is a good move, for MO and also for distraction
--You attacked GE in the West a good bit (though see below)
--You initially made it difficult for me to advance in central Russia (around Lublin)

Areas for improvement:
--Ostend, Cambrai, and Chateau-Thierry should be entrenched. I play pretty passively in the West, but you don't want GE to be able to cause a bunch of damage and potentially dislodge you, especially because a GE stack can easily get to 15A.
--Italy and FR/BR armies: Try not to bring FR and BR armies down to IT, or at most bring 1 army (1 army should be enough in the vast majority of cases). Instead rely on FR and BR corps, which can be SRed down or sit in Grenoble before. As long as they're with 1 IT army you're still on the army column, so armies just aren't needed. Of course this advice depends on how much energy CP is committing to Italy, but I didn't commit all that much in this game. Even if CP takes Venice, it's hard to advance further without having Verona (as noted above). If you do have to bring down one or more FR/BR armies, try to get them back up sooner rather than later. You never plausibly threatened Sedan or Brussels, in large part because you were missing three armies from the Western front. You did make me commit 4 AH armies to Italy, which took them away from elsewhere, but I didn't really need them elsewhere so it was fine. (And once you had that many armies down there, perhaps you should've pushed on Trieste or Villach more, which would've either distracted me or let you eliminate the armies and regenerate them in Paris.) You were hampered by a late IT draw and some FR Mutinies, but this advice applies in most cases, I think.
--Near East: SR British and Russian corps there early and often (more SR plays in general is probably a good move). CAU didn't present a threat and could be picked off because there just weren't enough RUc present, and then Basra fell pretty easily once the Russian NE was finished. The CAU might not advance, but it can at least be a major distraction, and more importantly it can help Allenby because then CP has to choose where to play Kemal and doesn't have as many corps available on each front of the NE. By the time you brought Allenby on it was too little too late, and you didn't have enough corps to make a sustained push up to Damascus anyway. I'd say try to have 3ish more BRc and 3ish RUc into the NE in the midgame, but it depends. Baku can be big, especially since it's a RU VP, and the NE can tilt the game.
--Balkans: Play Salonika only when you think you can hold it, and then spend resources on SR to hold it. If I recall correctly, you didn't invest as many BRc or FRc into Salonika at first as you might've, and then you weren't able to get many Serbians back on. Times when AH is distracted, such as in Italy or by RU, are good times to play Salonika. AH's pristine RP condition this game gave me a lot of flexibility to put out fires in the Balkans and Italy. A continuing threat in the Balkans is important for diverting CP resources from elsewhere, and also for preventing BUc from shoring up the NE. An IT stack in the Balkans is more
867 7/1/2020 10:20:00 AM Summer 1918 Central Powers Message Yes, good game, it was a pleasure!

Happy to give tips for improvement, will do so when I get a chance.

796 6/25/2020 3:08:00 PM Spring 1918 Central Powers Message Sure, agreed. I was initially only talking about for the current AP
795 6/25/2020 2:12:00 PM Spring 1918 Allies Message Agreed in the current situation.
I was talking more in general, if I had a corps in an eligible port.
794 6/25/2020 2:00:00 PM Spring 1918 Central Powers Message I don't see a BRc that can be legally SRed to Basra. It's not a capital, so can't get there straight from RB without a unit present. And port-to-port isn't an option because the only corps already in a port is CNDc which can't go to NE.
793 6/25/2020 1:53:00 PM Spring 1918 Allies Message If you lift the siege - why should I not SR to Basra? I think it's a legal move, at least I found no rule against it.
792 6/25/2020 8:36:00 AM Spring 1918 Central Powers Play Strategy card as Strategic Redeployment #51: 4 / Peace Offensive
May only be played after "H-L Take Command". Cancels all trench effects for 1 GE attack. If attacker does not advance into the space, subtract 1 VP. Play prior to Attempt Flank Attack Step. A trench does not need to be present.

Message from Central Powers:
YLD to Gaza, Basra siege lifted

(I don't currently see a way you can SR to Basra; if I'm wrong about that, I'd like to change my move if it's ok)
791 6/25/2020 8:32:00 AM Spring 1918 Central Powers Message 4-3. Elim 2x TUc, and flip BUc to cancel retreat. You have decision
