Starting a PBEM game of SC WW1 and felt it would be fun to share it with everyone else, dont see this done offen anymore but was common back in the SC2 days. We both are pritty new to the game so I dont expect grand stratagy to be a desiding factor but who makes the least number of mistakes. This will be New World vs Old World but I mean to make this my first step back to being Champ of North America (take that Rambo!).

Std game, no house rules, normal setup, V1.01. Iron as Central Powers : Derek as Allied.

Not everything posted here will be 100% true, dont want to give away how damaged my units might be after combat ect... Hopefully we are able to fight to near 1918, but as we are new this could end earlier.

Bla.. cant edit my post. BF you need to make this change to the Forums. Or someone can tell me how to edit them?

AZGungHo, thanks glad your enjoying it. Maps would be nice but: 1- I'm not that computer savy 2 - Right now they would give away too much info.. for example I'm sure Derek didnt know I had Railed in some Germany CVs from the west to Eastern Prussia.. and used them to cut his supply line when he did his CV push into central Prussia. I'll look into posting some maps, but I fear I will not due to the above reasons.

A nice quick first game for me, and I think Derek using the SC WW1. Only three tech advances for the Central Powers. The German "Great Wheel" worked as it was planed, whats left of the French corps were going to get crushed in a closing jaw move this spring. Russia was not much of a factor so I was able to keep all but a few units in the west. I think I railed 2 CV from the west and one IC from Serbia, plus the SF in the late fall.
