Default Re: WW1 Query

you can already get a "flavour" of how bad it would be.

set your date as early as possible - say 1930, Ger V GB

set preferences to a tall, narrow map (you will be trudging through mud and shellholes on foot)

for the map. use #240 (Western front). it is already there - and 241 for the Italian front

Artillery delay should be rather long (but still far too quick really)

Only allow any defender gold spots (he will have telephone links)

Only allow a defender to have FOOs (there are no radios even if the game insists on giving them to command elements) - defender FOO may have telephones.

Only play advance or really, assault battles

Only buy arty, and leg grunts - and maybe a few early tanks.
