The RR conversion thing still kind of baffles me. Having to devote a corps (even mobilized or reservist corps) to RR conversion seems a high price to pay, which is why I haven't gotten into the habit of manually converting, especially since it seems to be taking care of itself automatically... with the odd province here and there that mysteriously remains unconverted.

I guess I'm not quite sure why you would Intercept with *less* than your full forces? Sending a minimum 1 corps to intercept seems like almost certain suicide for that corps, although I suppose such an Intercept would at least have the benefit of stopping your opponent's Army's move through your territory. I'm a little confused too as to *where* your forces wind up after a successful interception? If my Army is set to Intercept, and I select "full forces", assuming I win the Intercept combat, is my entire Army now moved into the territory where the Intercept took place? If Yes, is this the drawback of 'overusing' Interception-- that if you intercept with several of your Armies along a front, after it's done, your front is going to be completely disorganized and full of gaps - ?

I understand that once you get to "Trench" doctrine, your GHQ can serve as a massive "reserve" for offensives (and on defense?) -- i.e. if your army is attacked and within range of GHQ in Trench combat, the entire slate of GHQ's corps are made available in the Reserves area (correct?). But this does not happen during "Mov't Warfare". I guess I"m just hoping to confirm that, for all intents and purposes, there's no real reason to load up GHQ with Corps before Trench warfare is initiated.

The "signpost" sprite is placed on the conquered territory, with a number that I assume = the RR capacity of the territory (?). The manual suggests that you have to *dedicate* an infantry corps to select "Convert RR" -- but I've never done this, and after a turn, the rr conversion seems to have happened automatically (the sprite disappears) -- am I missing something here?
sandman2575 wrote:4. Events cards. I don't quite understand why cards not meant for your alliance are made available -- for example, playing as Germany, during one Events phase the only card I could draw was the "Lawrence of Arabia" card. Given that my ally is Turkey, there is no reason for me to play this. Is the point, then, that I'm holding it so that the Entente can't use it? Also, I may be mistaken, but it often looks like the AI is playing cards *against* itself that produce harmful effects in their own countries -- like France playing a "Mutinies" card on itself - ? Maybe I'm not seeing this correctly, but it sure looks this way from the Event message descriptions and from what I see on the map itself.

sandman2575 wrote:6. Generally, and a big question I know -- how do I know how much I should be Producing, in terms of armaments and new units? Some units are automatically queued up and will become available to me. How aggressively should I be producing new units? I'm being very conservative at the moment -- but should I be going all out on production as Central Powers??
