Possible future campaigns for the Devs to take this!
I just felt like rambling a bit. As a war history buff and a person who has played Verdun since the beta, as well as Tannenberg's beta, I have loved the authenticity of these games. However, as much as I enjoy these games, and I think the devs do a good job fixing bugs and other issues in a timely manner, I do think that a change of seanery would be nice. Therefore I propose the following campaigns:

-The Italian Alps
-The fated Golipoli Campaign
-Africa Campaign?? (I can't remember off the top of mu head if there was one)

If anyone has any other suggestions I encourage you to put them here.

There's 4 "regions" of the war that could work, you've covered Italian & African campaigns, there is also the rest of the Middle East Theatre of war and the Balkans.

In most polls the Italian front has been most popular for the next game although some want it combined with the Balkans. Balkans has caused other groups issues such as The Great War channel that has gotten death threats over their coverage...

Yeah, it looks like Anything involving the Balkans is a no-go atm

As an old player since the beginning I'd love to see an alpine Italian scenario, but I am just going to say it: this game needs desperately new maps, fake, not realistic, whatever.... something playable that looks like WWI... ANYTHING... , thank you.

Main issue with balkan nationality is not understanding the insults, and we tend to swear and insult not only each other, but ourselves. Add nationalism on top of that, and you got a TNT just waiting to be ignited. Hiding behind the monitor, typing things that make normal person vomit just by taking a glimpse at it. Taking a glimpse, fool from Serbia considers Croatia catholic serbia and truly believes in it, fool from Croatia considers Serbia orthodox Croatia and believes in it, just as an glimpse Amount of times Serb/Croat/Bosnian insulted me on the internet...Well lets just say that when i see a guy typing insults after insults, i am always sure he is from balkan, usually a son of a immigrant who propagated war and sang nationalistic songs when it was time to think rationally, not violently, and leaving, well more like fleeing when it was time to back those words. Wounds are still fresh in those who participated, and usually if you find a decent human being from balkan, he is son of a war veteran. Thats just how it is, sadly. On that extent i am glad we wont be getting our campaign because no matter what you do you will find hate, not from majority, but from very vocal minority, although we did alot of things not much people tend to remember. But then again, not much people tend to remember tannenberg sadly, as a comparison that people usually do not care, and its not about one hating another. In general I am greatly displeased and sad how animalistic my kinsmen, and neighbors behaved, and still do.
The most logical front to cover next is Italy and the Balkans, but as others have said there are still ideological problems that rage there to this day.

Gallipoli would be a good individual map but exists somewhat in isolation compared to the rest of the war. It doesn't fit with Salonika really or the Mesopotamian campaign. Gallipoli was a campaign in itself but it would be too narrow a front to base a whole game around.

if you think the balkan is a hot topic, wait until you learn about the caucasus campaign. i've been on the internet for over 20 years includign international history forums and there's probably no more contentious topic than that in all of history all thigns considered. the balkan and holocaust fade in comparison...

the salonika front was literally started by french troops that were supposed to fight at gallipoli. there isn't really a disconnect and i don't know why esp. british people insist on it.
I didn't mean from a historical background, I meant in terms of formations that fought in both places, the style of combat etc. I don't believe any New Zealander or Australian troops fought on the Salonika front, for example, so if it was a Salonika-Gallipoli game, they'd have to be included, God the Aussies would pitch a fit if they weren't, but they'd be there for one map. It could be argued this applies equally to Verdun, for the Belgians or the Americans, but there is more of a continuity with the Western Front than between Gallipoli and Salonika in terms of geography and the like.

Just feels jarring, to me anyway. Your mileage may vary.

feck it, wether the devs plan on makign another game or adding more stuff to existing games, they need to accept having all squads be available on all maps at all times isnt that great of an idea

Yes please further restrict the limited content and give players less of a choice in what they can and cannot play. This is a very fun and awesome idea!

as an example, a lot of people have been asking for a gallipolli map, or ottomans for tannen. devs say no to these precisely because of the way squads work in the ww1gameseries.

you cant make a brand new game specifically for these parts of the war as theyre too small and you already have 2 games to update, you cant have turks popping everywhere in the western and eastern front, but you can make several maps with squads like ottomans if you dont add them everywhere.

yes have them as sort of special squad that is only available on them maps not every map so that they arent everywhere

Also because it's not part of the games setting and isn't then covered with the base game cost.

i kinda get it for gallipoli and verdun, but not for the ottomans in tannen. fits okay imo

they added way more than a squad and a coupel of maps since the release of tannen. id go as far as to say people wouldve overall wouldve prefered turks and a map on which to play them than latvians and the wall map (i still really like both that squad and that map, dont get me wrong).

youll tell me that making a squad thats not playable on all maps isnt worth the effort, but tbh im pretty sure turks have less unique weapons than what the devs added in 2019.
plus iirc ottomans could be playable on dobrudja, and once you got models for em you can make a gallipoli map for verdun. im not big into gallipoli but like ottomans its something thats been requested a loooot.

They can do whatever they like, turks in Vosges is about as believable as Americans at the Somme. Neither one is true and as with every battle in Verdun it's completely past the realm of historical accuracy or authenticity.
