Yes I did, the divisions at Chelm thankfully fled westward instead of eastward.I'm a bit confused, did you bag the russian divisions west of Brest-Litovsk, or not? You started the attack in Congress Poland before you took Brest-Litovsk, and the last slide still shows that as an ongoing battle.
Gott Erhalte Deutschland!
That overland route from Berlin to Constantinople is really important so yeah, Asienkorps to the rescue! At least in the Sinai where the British AI puts all their forces that instead could be invading Germany right now. Also, there isn't a lot of use for oil right now, that's mainly a WW2 Problem (Panzers, Luftwaffe). It's still nice to have though.Good luck! With Bulgaria joining and Serbia knocked out you (in theory) have a completley overland route you can transfer troops from East to West as necessary. Is there really any heavy use from oil in WW1 in this mod or not really?
I'm militarily controlling them (like @Colt556 said), and thank god they built a ton of divisions. Literally 21 are in the Sinai right now against the 10-15 British Divisions, with Bulgarian/German Reinforcements coming. Usually the AI just goes on the offensive without properly thinking through. For example, my last time I played as WW1 Germany, the Ottomans decided to attack the Russians and got their butts handed to them, but if you don't let that happen the Russians either won't care about that front or can't take advantage of the battered Ottoman Troops. Also the British AI likes to send all of its divisions to Egypt for some reason, rarely do they ever land in Europe.
Indeed.70,000 deaths in a single day ouch.
Well, this battle is very much similar to Somme, at least the first day. The British in real life suffered 60,000 casualties the first day, the bloodiest day in the history of the British Army. And that was in 1916, imagine if something like that happened two years prior, before the steel helmets and better uniforms, on top of being covered in the Russian Snow. Yikes.Well, that made the real life Somme and Verdun look like pillow fights. At least it brings some realism to the war and makes for great storytelling. You can't win all of the battles, but you'll surely rebound from this loss and make Deutschland uber alles.
