I was thinking what would be the point of going in to Albania. So I cane up with this. The WA are limited to one Army in Greece at any time per 10.2.3.3, Salonika event. Albania has no such limit that I have read so taking it allows the WA to get more units into the Balkans, and would be a good launch point to attack A-H via Bosnia.
Do I have that about right or am I overlooking something?
Thanks.
Chris

That's correct thinking, Chris. That's what I was alluding to in the other post about the WA getting an advantage by retreating into Albania when Greece is available. It would give them a real head start on this strategy with already having an army in Greece.

To pull this off, the lone army in Greece would have to attack Albania to secure it and then the WA army would be in Albania. AH could then attack the WA army and drive it back to Greece and then they would have an army there. Or, AH could wait until you move another army to Greece and then attack, forcing the Albanian WA army off the map. So they actually have a couple turns to react.

So AH can counter the strategy, but like many things in the game you want to force more issues at the same time so they can't counter everything.

That is if AH isn't too tied up in Russia and has Italy knocking at their back door.

Thanks again Kirk.

Yep. Another good reason for AH to take out Serbia sooner rather than later.
