188 11/16/2022 4:03:00 PM Winter 1915 Allies Message thanks- never had a player get a trench in C-T so that was a learning experience

in hind-sight the full retreat makes sense

good game


187 11/16/2022 3:54:00 PM Winter 1915 Central Powers Message To be frank I think next a couple of weeks are going to be a bit streinous. Our baby is soon about to be born so would have paused playing for a bit anyhow. So sadly I must turn your offer down right now.

As for this game, some things I think you could have done differently:
1. When you first time move BR-army from London: Move to Cambrai, not Calais. AP doesnt care about BR-casualties in the beginning. And putting it in Cambrai blocks Amiens-route too.
2. Dont spend OPS to activate BR+BE stack this much. You had some bad rolls on your attacks got to admit, but they wouldnt have changed anything had they succeeded.
3. And most importantly about BR+BE stack in Brussels, dont retreat to Calais/Ostend with 2OPS! You pretty much want CP do the dirty work of using OPS to attack it and push it back to Ostend. Usually CP wants to do it before AP moves Belgians away and brings 2 BR armies for a scary British stack.
4. With those OPS spared, move and attack with Russians.

5. Some minor inefficient OPS usage was at the start FRc from CT -> Melun, FRc from Grenoble to Paris and then FRc from Paris -> Verdun etc. OPS are so scarce that inefficient use can cost one the game. If I were you, I would have just left FRc in CT and later with SR move FRc from Grenoble to Melun.

I think one major strategic issue was how the Hammer played out. You tried to hold everything which ended up costing you everything pretty much. I could continuously force OOS threats and threaten Paris. I think that if you cant push CP away from CT immediately after he goes in, you need to abandon Verdun + Nancy. And not sure if trying to attack CT is even good, I pretty much always just fall back from Verdun and Nancy if CP brings down the Hammer.

Although, my (GEc) going to Sedan can move via Cambrai so I'd just say its CP-controlled hoh.
