Re: My Experience: Was the Game Designer Serbian?

I thought that Guns of August was fairly accurate for a tiny lower tech game. This game is very glittery and you could modify it if you spent a lot of time for historical accuracy but as for game play, it's got a feel of real War. It has the grit and determination... Very beautiful graphics and sou...

Re: My Experience: Was the Game Designer Serbian?

I don’t know, if you consider the Serbian militias, who were quite experienced and effective after the Balkan Wars, it’s easy to argue that their manpower reserves should be proportionally higher than those of A-H and Germany. They held off Austria-Hungary until October 1915, after all. By that log...

Re: My Experience: Was the Game Designer Serbian?

That sounds promising! What was the point of Gallipoli in real life? To open the Dardanelles to make trade with Russia possible? If so, give Russia merchant convoys (representing trade with Britain and France, not colonies). If the Entente doesn’t force the strait, Russia won’t get those resources....

Re: My Experience: Was the Game Designer Serbian?

I agree, it's dumb that the Brits can deploy in Cairo. The Ottomans can't even hope to wear them down. Kirk, thank you for your vigilance and for keeping the game updated. I genuinely, genuinely appreciate that from developers. As for my current experience: The game I started where I deleted a coupl...

Re: My Experience: Was the Game Designer Serbian?

Only playing on balanced but anyhow..... One simply trick is to delete two German cruiser fleets and the Austrian one and you will have enough Infantry divisions to hold France and defeat Russia but to defeat Russia you must use those extra German and Austrian divisions to trap the first wave of Ru...

Re: My Experience: Was the Game Designer Serbian?

It seems like, as the Central Powers, I have to do everything perfectly (i.e. take Paris and Belgrade early) to even have a chance of victory, and even then it's just a chance. A slim one.

My Experience: Was the Game Designer Serbian?

First, let me describe where I'm coming from. I am Italian-American. I like playing as the underdogs in World War games (one and two). Italy, if I can, in WWII, and the Central Powers in WWI. I like making things turn out differently than they did. And, holy crap, that is absolutely impossible for m...
