Supremacy 1914 Campaign Journal - Day 81

Updated on March 24, 2014

Supremacy 1914 - Day 81

Well, a lot and nothing has happened since yesterday's fun and games. People's intentions have been shown - even though they were shown from the start - and as the clock ticks on and the points rise and fall, the end is maybe close. But one wrong move could see the game extend beyond the next few days. It all hangs in the balance. Let's get on and see what has happened today..

I attacked Lithuania yesterday as you know. People play to win and that is what I aim to do. It was clear that he was building and placing troops waiting for what he and I knew was coming, I acted sooner rather than later to avoid casualties, but they were inevitable. Oh, yes.. I take this game seriously.

My armies got little resistance at first even though the higher losses were mine to begin with. I took land with ease but as I had already stated, Lithuania had placed defensive railguns - canons that run on railway lines: very slow, but with a very long range - and they did cause reasonable damage to my advancing force - I have a clever tactic to reduce losses though.

Without blowing my own trumpet too loudly - thought I feel I must - I did a quite cunning maneuver. I am not sure too sure how I pulled it off but anyway, the screen below might shed light on what I speak of..

That's correct! Somehow, someway, I managed to send a reasonable sized forced - small enough to not be an empire busting threat - and attacked & captured Lithuania's capital city! Not sure how I pulled it off - as I keep saying. The sole purpose was simply to make Lithuania split in to two and defend in more than one area.

I took the capital - $1,300 000 & reduced morale: empire wide - and took a neighbouring piece of land with ease. Now, I started to worry. I saw that I was the filling of a Polish/Lithuanian sandwich and if Poland wanted to attack, it could. I could take land easy enough but I couldn't hold on to it if Poland or the US thought they would have a go at a few vulnerable areas of mine..

My losses are higher than theirs but I have taken a lot of their land, including their capital. They are going to fall but the resistance is strong. Also, the US have

It is hard to sometimes sacrifice units. Some more than others. To see powerful units that have taken a long time to build be sent for destruction. I need to knock out the railguns and bring down the fortress before my men and ground units can attack.

So, he I go sending in the battleships and hoping for the best, but knowing there will be losses.


Until tomorrow!

      Yeah, it is a real time eater though :) As I say some games last a few weeks but some - like this one - last a loooong time. It is good fun!
