Strength 10 Smallgarrisons in fortresses were able to stop whole Army Corps, that's why they are max 5 now. Britain can directly deploy Garrisons and Cavalry in Egypt which will use up transport moves in case you did not notice.
Because the AI would send all useful units to Serbia in SP and MP is only getting tested now by just 2 powergamers who want to win by any means and try weird tactics and/or reload like hell to get ideal results. Normally Britain would have several turns before Turkey would join the war to build up forces in Egypt.
It's not my fault your opponent is not playing by the book.
10/10 and lower defense value?
fortresses are build to be tough to beat, why garrisons shouldnt be able to surive at least one turn - in trenches one attack, in fortresses two
garrisons are not upgradeable, so they will be more and more vulnerable as the game goes on, its better to have two 10/10 than five 5/10, which are just useless
british delay is set to 10+ or more turns if ost marsch / belgium yields happens, so hes maybe power gamer, but goebens escape + closing dardanells + shelling sevastopol are not as rare events, then britain in war before ottomans is nearly impossible (except succesfull campaign in france)
power gaming can show greatest imbalances, which for me is such open egypt, i know i can place some units there, but there wont be time for it, 1st ottomans turn suez blocked, 2nd closing to cairo, 3rd falling cairo, then i will be able to place first 2 corps, but ottomans + senussi vs 2 corps, isnt it like loud calling for revolution?
if ai is moving units out, then what about setting garrisons on borders? or its impossible? or at least in front of crucial suez hexes at full strength, even ai is more vulnerable because of them, as its filling gaps in line of defense with 5/10 units...
the same for egypt, but ai can place new units immediatelly and has some bonus armies, actually ai can do better than any player there
*sigh* okay...when Turkey DOWs, Britain will DOW too then... * - i see no compromise in this, i werent talking about mod, but this sentence
i know its free, but players can be scared if they will meet some sharp situation like in egypt, so my motivation is to blunt it
they are leaving for less, unfortunately
