Bit confused on these. First: The German CLs in Africa and Rabaul mini fleet. Supposed to be able to interdict British shipping, but how? Do I set raid and leave them in port, set raid and move them into the ocean, not set raid, just move them into the ocean, etc. Didn't see it in the big manual, o...

Doug BTW, were you playing in the WEGO mode or turn based, army by army? Also, were you using the 2 or 4 player mode? I was using WEGO-next time it will be turn based. I was playing in 2 player, turn-based, but without army-by-army activation. I'm glad to hear the AI was more active in your game. N...

Review of CG with 1.06H Patch

I finished playing the CG as the Entente using the 1.06H patch. AH surrendered in April 1917, so I called it at that point. Overall, the game ran crash-free and better than ever. Review of Major Events: West Front Germans choose Konprinz plan, so no invasion of Belgium. Germans are somewhat aggressi...

Well, you wrote you play in WEGO, right?? So in WEGO the Reinforcements phase and the Military phase are mixed into one single phase. That means the Military phase includes the Reinforcements phase.

The rules do not say you cannot retreat during/before the very 1st round of naval combat. Instead they say you cannot retreat (withdraw) during the 1st round only if you've been "trapped" (see page 73 and following ones), unless you got a "surprise" bonus. So you are asking for a design change? The...

After playing through 2 years of a CG as the Entente with the 1.06H patch (playing in WEGO), I think the game is almost there. It is massively improved over the original version that came out.

I was able to snag an image showing the problem. The only route from Scotland to Dogger Bank goes through about 6 German coastal zones. The British fleets shown left Scotland last turn and made it to that zone off Denmark. All of those zones are mined, by the way, so the British lost a couple of BBs...

RP Stock Limits Not Enforced

Playing a CG as the Entente with 1.06H, and I noticed that all the powers are able to keep far above the limits set in rule 6.2 in their RP stocks. For example, in August 1915, after reinforcement phase, Germany has 46 RP (limit is 32), AH has 31 (limit is 24), France has 30 (limit 24), Russia has 4...

Naval Pathfinding in 1.06H still broken

There is STILL no naval path for British units to move from Scotland to Dogger Bank w/o going through some ridiculous route that take them through 5 German coastal zones? I'd hoped this was fixed. Anyone else seeing this?

Thing is, if the human player knows already in advance what countries the AI will focus on, he will (as is undeniably human) exploit this and focus as well on these countries to make it sheer impossible for the AI to get anything done anyways.

I started a new CG under 1.06d, then upgraded to the 1.06e beta. In October 1914, the RP system seemed to work fine. Each power was able to use 1/2 its RP stock to flip units to full strength. I then saved the game. When I opened the game back up later, each nation's RP stock had been reduced to zer...

Ok I checked the code and I now recall how the procedure works... The 50% base calculation is performed on the RP flow , not on the RP stock, because the stock decreases with the spending of RPs, so it's impossible to count on it .
