165 4/17/2021 5:31:00 AM Winter 1915 Allies Message I study this type of brain error on other context and there is nothing to do to prevent it but you can only catch it after by 1) comparing files periodically and 2) listing more information so there are clues of a transcription error. That is why I always list units that do not move but "stay" to help catch errors and keep board in sync.
164 4/17/2021 5:27:00 AM Winter 1915 Allies Message I think you keep saying Liege when you mean Brussels. It is the stress;) Your retreat listed Liege (I thought you were pulling back). You must have meant Brussels and I will consider the GE3 (GEc) in Brussels; it would not change my advance.
163 4/17/2021 12:12:00 AM Winter 1915 Central Powers Play Strategy card as Operations #4: 2 / Severe Weather
Defending units in a mountain space in Fall/Winter or a swamp space in Spring/Fall get a +2 drm.

Message from Central Powers:
I would also have gone after Sedan from Verdun - only would hit Metz if the first attack failed

argh, this is so stressful, lol.

in for a penny....so:
C Liege all and GE2 Sedan vs Cambrai, 16A vs 9A
C [GE9] Sedan will autokill CT [FRc], after above result

the 50/50 shot at flank I think lowers my chances of winning

(or you can roll it)? Obviously no reason not to roll for a trench there. And just as obviously, if successful, you could adjust any part of your move.
