How to win Estonia?

Played Estonia 1918 today... 

Was fun at the beginning, but the mid-end game was... just horrible. Military victory is impossible since the Soviet has so many units, you don't have only a chance to win. And since the useless ships costs 5$ every turn, there is also nearly no money to buy more CU or even rebuy losses. You basically just defend from turn 8+ without any chance to counterattack or even hold the line.

Okay, I don't mind, I can just delay the Reds and win per VP.

Nope, Germany plays a card out and get instant +15 VP (circa); game over, germany won. Absolute not funny, especially since germany was nearly defeated and only hold Libau and the other city north of it. 

Loaded the game and try again, same outcome.

I don't know:

  • a) the german card is bugged and they get too much VP (which is a totally gamebreaking bug which should be fixed ASAP!)
  • b) the maintance cost is unintentionally 5$ and the whole scenario is designed to have much more troops (this way, maybe, I would be aible to defeat the germans completly before they can use there insta-win card).
  • c) if everything works as designed, the scenario is, sorry if I write is so harsh, garbage and unplayable with the Estonian side

Exactly, Gaermany has a big Event Card. If Germany can acquire many regions (in Latvia) and if she then plays this Event card, she can win a lot of victory points. 

For the Soviets, we must try to cut off their supply.

Estonia must play as soon as possible the British support cards.

yes, I see, but still feels strange.

In my playthrough, Germany just has 2-3 provinces left on the whole map and still won by VPs. They had around 3 VP before playing the card, and after playing it they just needed 1-2 VPs from battles to reach 20...

We shall check the issue. How comes the German have a $5 maintenance cost? Or is it the Estonians who have this cost? (which most likely comes from the Royal Navy units). In such a case I believe it could be easy to offset the naval cost by granting extra revenue to Estonia (of the same amplitude) when the Royal Navy comes in.

Lucas Slavik

Yes, its Estonia which has 5$ maintenance, and yes, it's from the Royal Navy.

OK we shall fix that in the card then

Lucas Slavik

yep, would be nice.

Maybe check if the card effect for this one german card is corrext. I still believe they get more VP as in the card description (2VP per 2 controlled prov).

Will check that too. Do you recall computing something different to what the card said?
