I just joined a "Europe 1914" scenario, the game is literally an hour old, I checked the newspaper to find that my next door neighbour Austria-Hungary just joined only five minutes before me - and yet he's already on my border with 2 ACs, 2 infantry - and two level 2 flamethrower units???
How is it even POSSIBLE to have flamethrower units on day 1? They are not even researchable until day 7!
And how could he possibly march an army of 7 troops to my border when the game is only an hour old and he only joined five minutes before I did?
