One thing to keep in mind though, and a large reason we opted for the sides to be split as they are, nations like the Ottoman Empire don't have that much to do during significant chunks of the game. At times they may be very active, but there's also going to be lulls in the action. Austria-Hungary was included on the same side as the Germans, because German support is crucial at times to their survival (and if A/H falls, Germany won't be able to last long on its own).
I am currently playing a beta game as the Central Powers, and as an example, my turns are spent with roughly 75% of my time devoted to the German units, about 20% to the Austro-Hungarians, and only about 5% towards the Ottomans (they are mostly trying to hold a defensive line against the British).
Omg I just can't wait to play this game, after I finish my PON campaign and AAR! A question I have though is: will it be much heavier than PON? I'm needing to update my computer, but as it's still good to play PON I didn't care totake any action towards getting another, but a pc that is able to play PON would be able to play EAW as well?
