405 10/8/2022 2:44:00 PM Spring 1916 Allies Message I am a pretty average POG player and do not have any deep insights into the game. However, one good guiding principle is to balance your lossses between the different nations such that you can not waste RPs. As the allies, I tend to try and focus on the Germans who can be attrited on both fronts. It's good as the CP if you can engage the Austrians more and try to inflict damage on the Russians using both German and Austrian forces. This will make it hard for me to rebuild all Russians or end up wasting some French/British RPs. I thought you and I both played solidly overall. I am never usre as the CP how aggressively to go for France. Making more headway earlier before all the British forces come into the game might make sense. I am not always good at making this happen but I think it is harder for the AP if they own less of France. Pushing hard on the eastern front also is helpful - Russians are much easier to kill than Germans and they rebuild a couple of turns away from the front. If you can make the Russian line in the north collapse and then start the Russian revolution sequence, it makes it increasingly hard for the AP. Please take my advice with a grain of salt - as I say I am a distinctly average player. I really enjoyed playing you - you were good to interact with. Thank you! If it's okay with you, I will report the result. Good luck with your future POG games.
404 10/8/2022 2:19:00 PM Spring 1916 Central Powers Message So, I think I will concede at this point. Well played on your part.

Any advice or tips you can give for future better play would be welcomed.
403 10/8/2022 2:18:00 PM Spring 1916 Central Powers Message I don't see a way to victory at this point. Just getting hammered on the Western front. I don't know if it's the rolls, which have not gone my way it seems for most of the game, or just poor play on my part.

But, I can't see making the necessary progress in Russia while at the same time holding you off in the West without seceding key territory and key VP's.

I had read that a good strategy is to grab Brussels and Sedan and hold them with three Armies, freeing the CP to focus on the East.

That strategy seems flawed to me now as you can just load up all the British Armies they wat that you did and just hammer.
