so there i was just starting the 2nd year of a great war btwn russia(me) and france vs uk, turkey, , prussia, and netherlands. i had just turned the tide, and all that was left was the long slog to victory. then i notice my french allies settled for a great war capitulation peace, and i was on my own. i was so mad at the french, i started thinking up ways to hurt them when i finally won. a month passed and i win a few battles that had been raging, and i can't find any more british troops in india. i look on the diplo page and uk has 4 brigades!
seems when france settled for peace they did me a huge favor, as all my enemies had their armed forces cut. needless to say i was no longer mad at france. however i did feel that that outcome was an exploit of sorts.
since the capitulation has 0 war score it's easy for someone who is looking to white peace out to get the capitulation, which in turn cripples the other combatants.
shouldn't the alliance leader be the only one able to use the GWC peace settlement to avoid this?
