    Baltic zone issue

    Here you go. I still have some trouble with photoshop. I can send you the save if you would like to look at it.
  8. Bill I am playing a game against an opponent who landed near Hamburg and was able to move almost his entire British fleet in to destroy by German Navy, which is ok because he held both areas of the channel above Hamburg connecting the Atlantic with the Baltic. However I was able to take back the left hex which per the map should trap the British navy in the Baltic to be destroyed at my leisure however his navy moved right through my infantry. This really is a game changer that gives the British the ability to more or less move at leisure through the Baltic as more or less a ghost navy. I can send you the saved file for you to check out. I am putting my game on hold and perhaps will give it up if can not be fixed as this changes the dynamics of the game not to mention I spent a lot of MPP operating in air units for the objective of destroying the British navy and keeping them locked in the Baltic for no purpose in the rest of the war. Regards, Steel32
  9. I applaud the effort but really unsure how this changes the game! The war is won on the land, not in the sea. Not really sure of the reason to invest in naval technology beyond at times subs #1 but 2nd to spend precious money upgrading in naval when German is so hard pressed on the land. Just my opinion that I would love to play someone who invested in naval as the Central Powers
  10. Hello Furchtlosundtrew, After playing the computer some more I do agree with you more that it is very hard to take out those fortress in Belgium without artillery support and now it is coming back to me that I do not attack Belgium but hit France direct with everything. However for the sake of argument when we do play I will try something different and attack Belgium to see if it can be done. And I remember the not losing supply thing for surrounded areas was to represent the strength of fortified positions in the war. steelman3250@hotmail.com whenever you get a chance let me know. Regards, Steel32
  11. Bill Hard to argue with an immortal in SC, and perhaps I should clarify my remark on the east. I still believe the war is for the most part won in the east if the Germans play correct. That is they must take the initiative from the Russians as soon as possible or almost no matter what they do in the west they can and usually will lose the overall war. If left to their own the Russians become a 3 headed monster that can reach out in so many directions. Also per your points if given time the western entente will either by force or diplomacy start to bring down Germany as you state, however I must admit I rarely play diplomacy the 1st 2 years. I did play a game against the computer with March on Paris and find that an aggressive fast march surrounding the fortress' although will cost the Germans men due to the artillery will eliminate the fortress somewhat quickly. The northern one need to take that division out 1st before you surround. However I do also notice that the fortress' over time do not lose value. Is there a reason for this? My personal preference for my artillery is to send to Verdun ASAP and take the French on in the center rather than Belgium but I guess to each their own. Steel32
  12. Hello Furchtlosundtrew, Such a long name:) I would agree with your comments for the most, as I should not send messages when I drink. However I still mostly stand by my comments from most of response. I believe that the team for Strategic Command Battlefront games mostly do a good job in reflecting the real war. These are real problems that the Germans encountered. No different than any modern war going back to the US civil war where RR heads are key along with supply. These are problems the Germans encountered along the way where it just was not strategy, nor supply or wear and tear but a lot of factors. Try cutting the supply to these points or other. Been so long that I played but also played PBEM and won as the Central Powers and believe possible. Open to game if you like? Regards, Steel32
  13. All I can say is I highly disagree. Germany has the initiative and you need to learn how to play it. It is all the Entente can do in the beginning just to survive depending on how the Germans play. Belgium is broken in 2 turns if there is no mud, and even at that can be done if determined. But in the end Belgium is a stepping stone. The war is always won in the east! Give the Germans what you want and it is war over if I am playing!
  14. No problem, just frustrated with fizzling. Love your AAR's and try to learn from you on how to write one. Keep it up
  15. Whoops means what? I can guess but will be nice and say what??
