This mighty page is where all the algorithms for World War I in the map game Triple Entente vs. Central Powers will be done.

Is it me or have all the Central Powers been winning their battles lately?

I think the reason for that is the fact that that the main powers (Germany, Italy, A-H) are bordering each other and are thus able to support each other militarily, while the allied powers are kind of spread out. In the case of France and the low countries, the are facing Germany and Italy on their eastern border and Britain to the northwest.

Discussion

Am I doing these wrong, as they seem biased to me. Let me know is you see anything wrong.

I thought so too. I'm checking everything right now.

@ The Strength Part: Germany is definitely a war machine, but France and all of them are a pretty big population base together.

@ The Strength Part Again: Russia definitely has some troops in France at the least.

@ The Chance Part: Never liked it myself, so I did it again. I got three and two.

Russia never had any soldiers in France during World War 1, and given their even more terrible situation in this one, they would need all the troops they could get on the Eastern front.

Remember: Brits = not on their side = the Allies deploying just some troops in their allies' countries.

Exactly. With the British not even on their side, how could the Russians get troops past the Scandinavians, British, Austrians, or Italians at sea? No real chance there.

  • Hate to break this to you, but the algorithm was apparently changed. Since you are invading India, you are technically invading Britain. A bit confusing, and I don't like the whole changing-algorithms thing. It should be settled now though.
  • I would like to respectfully challenge that change. I don't think Britain should get the location advantage, because most of their military is being focused in the European theatre, with their power base halfway around the world. There is no way they can get their troops into India in any efficient manor. Gemralts 01:53, May 3, 2012 (UTC)

Allied Invasion of Great Britain

Allies

Location: 1 (it's led by the CoLA)

Tactical: 1

Strength: 3+3+3+3+3+3 (Japan, Spain and France aid the invasion. Also France is a "big cheese." Plus all the allies have more industry as well as population).

Motive: 5

Random: 3

Great Britain

Location: 5

Tactical: 4

Strength: 3 (It was a surprise invasion, they didn't know until we posted).

Motive: 10

Random: 1

Result

Allies 28 Great Britain 23

The Allies successfully invade Britain and establish an Allied foothold in the area while holding London hostage.

For one, Britain's strength should be for sure six as they are a big cheese. Secondly, The three nation are sending aid, not military troops except France. Thirdly, it would take a month or year to get the materials to invade like this, somewhat like D-Day.

The British were given points for big cheese(its the three). Yes the nations were sending military troops because we've been planning this since the British invasion of the CoLA mainland in 1915, a year and a half ago. Also, it was a surprise invasion so they couldn't possibly have seen it coming so that explains the points against them.

Here is the problem with strength, it says you get three IF you are a combatant. As Britain is, they get three. Also, the strength of the CoLA should only be six or nine.

This was an ALLIED invasion, so we were all combatants. It wasn't one nation, it was all the major allies who are in fact combatants. I think that's all there is to argue for, besides the only thing I think is wrong on my part is their motive because their government can live on in any one of their dominions. Should I change that or is it fine as is because we would win anyway. BTW, thanks for joining the war.

Two things

  1. Explain to me how Japan could send troops through heavily infested British waters?
  2. Do you really think you have more population then the British Empire? look at the map.

Monster Pumpkin 00:40, May 3, 2012 (UTC)

Look, quit challenging every single thing I post. First, a Japanese contingent was already IN EUROPE. Second, all the allies combined would top your empire because although extensive it is sparsely populated especially Canada, Australia, Africa, New Zealand, and your own island. Really India only contributes a significant amount of population but not enough to take the population points. I'm even considering giving that only 5 motive points because: 1 taking south Britain won't kill you as a nation and 2 your empire could live on in any of your dominions.

I don't challenge all of your posts, just the ones that seem incorrect.

I was not aware that a contingent of Japanese troops was in France. If they are, then I apologize.

Population-wise, yes Canada and Australia are sparsely populated, but the rest is not. In fact Britain is very densely populated.

Also, the algorithm is supposed to be one nation against another, not an organization. You can choose who it is, but it has to be one nation. The reason why I did that before was because Russia didn't have a player.

I need to ask how you expect to land in Britain when the British Home Fleet is right there.

Remember, it is just a game, and all I want is for it to be fair and balanced. I will not destroy your nation if you lose, heck, I didn't even want to get involved in the first place.

There is no need to get overly angry at a game.

I have to go for tonight, so this will have to be put on hold. Good Night.

Sorry if that seemed mad but rightly so, I felt like you were being a tad too biased on a lot of things. You challenged all allied algorithms here on this page. If you weren't going to be involved you shouldn't have struck so massively at the Allies then. For the population deal Britain and India are densely populated but yet not enough to top us. I believe the "ALLIED" invasion as a group is justified because the Central Powers attacked Russia as a group. Lastly your fleet is overextended throughout the world and there is no sea battle algorithm. I believe this algorithm is correct and should be kept that way.

Did you not read why I made the Central nations one group? You also seem to forget that my nation entered the war because of a mod event written by RWG. Furthermore, My fleet is the largest in the world and it really only needs to be placed in three places right now: Europe, Pacific, and the Caribbean. No real over extension at all. Monster Pumpkin 23:21, May 3, 2012 (UTC)

That's total biased modding! You can make the Central Powers a group to easily invade a strong country but we cant do the same? and you think that having your fleet spread out like that is no over extension?

Latin American-led Offensive into Southern Italy

Latin America

Location: 1

Tactical: 1

Strength: 3+3+3+3 (France is helping and is big cheese)

Motive: 5

Random: 7

Italy

Location: 5

Tactical: 2

Strength: 0 (they are busy in the north, so little resistance is met.)

Motive: 10

Random: 7

Result

Latin America 26 Italy 24

Latin America takes Southern Italy, effectively driving the Italians out of their own country. Italy is now occupied by the Allies. Confederation forces meet the French in the north and both occupy Italy jointly.

0 strength? It's not like all of Italy is stationed in the north... ChrisL123 23:54, May 2, 2012 (UTC)

There's nothing to give them points for anyway...

Well, it's not as if they don't have support, Austria's still supporting them. It's just that the algorithm was written directly after the turn and no one had a chance to say anything. Unless it was a surprise attack, which wasn't mentioned. ChrisL123 00:09, May 3, 2012 (UTC)

Austria is attacking from the north not the south. They were helping Italy to try to take back French-occupied North Italy, which failed. TO get to the south, the Austrians would have had to win their and then help against this offensive. But, because they failed in the North, they couldn't help the Italians in the south so the Italians fought alone.

Germany, Austria, and Britain (Malta) are aiding them.

Since the battle was close, Italy would not be totally defeated.

Monster Pumpkin 00:42, May 3, 2012 (UTC)

Here we go again MP.... They were aiding the FAILED Italian offensive to regain the Northern region. Since they failed, they didn't cross over and help the Italians in the south therefore they lost. And it's not like any of you could foresee this planned surprise with enough time to mobilize properly. Because they failed, they couldn't have reached Southern Italy in time to help the Italians.

This is completely ridiculous. Not all my troops would be stationed in the north. Plus Italy is a mountainous nation and should be given somewhat of a bonus for that. Plus I have naval aid from Britain and I'm pretty sure Britain could blow anything of Latin America out of the water CommanderOfTheFourthReich 02:37, May 3, 2012 (UTC)

Of course not all of your troops are there, it's just that there is a much weaker force there because you are concentrated in the north. There is no bonus for that because it would: 1 be too difficult to incorporate into the algorithm and 2 come on seriously mountains? We can make up just about any "bonus" for any nation. In this game, there is no naval advantage points but consider this: CoLA and French navies are blockading your ports anyway so your British aid is not there. Even if it were true please remember that Britain's navy is terribly overextended throughout the world and couldn't put too much of a fight up against two strong navies despite Britain having the worlds strongest navy.


Britain's navy would only have one serious contender here: France. In this war, you either protect France or you sink and drown, literally. All the other navies are either too small or too under maintained, perhaps both, to be effective. You also seem to forget that Austria, Greece, and the Ottoman Empire have their own navies in the region as well, and with no more combatants in the Eastern Mediterranean to fight, they would help here.

Troop location is not factored into this algorithm. If you want, you can propose a new one, but unless it is approved by a majority of the mods it will not be put into place. Monster Pumpkin 23:27, May 3, 2012 (UTC)
