German 1914 AI

I think it needs to be reworked, since they never broke through the Belgian lines.

Not only that, Russia needs to be dumbed down. If the beta AAR is anything to go by the Russians will be rolling over everyone!

Problem seems to be Germany has virtually nothing on Eastern Front, banking on success of Schlieffen Plan which fails at the gates of Liege.....

I'm afraid that Germany stations most of her troops there, since there is minimal amounts of troops at the western front.

But doesn't this scenario start in August 1914? If so, this would be correct. Of course, back then they didn't know (or didn't want to know) the Schlieffen Plan wouldn't succeed, but they were determined to give it a shot.

Britain also needs a reworking, since they never send expeditionary forces to the western front, and the ottoman empire doesn't come into the war until at the latest moment.

There ought to be an event regarding the Schlieffen Plan created that changes German AI to mass 90% of its forces on its western border and causes Germany to attack through Belgium and straight towards Paris as the German military plans dictated. There also ought to be a restriction placed on Russian mobilization, because in real life, it took more than 6 weeks for Russia to organize its military for full war, not to mention become battle-ready and then move. Also, because there are no trenches in-game in Northern France after the Germans break through Belgium, perhaps some sort of event could be triggered that if the parameters of a so-called "stalemate" were met, then fortifications could spring up along the Western Front battle line.

And Great Britain did send forces over shortly after it declared war on Germany. It was only a small portion of its standing army on the island, while the rest of its forces were mobilizing. And the Ottoman Empire was in the war from the beginning, although there was little fighting until the British landed in Galipoli in 1915.
