04 Oct 15 UTC Good game!
04 Oct 15 UTC is it just me or did the website go down for a few mins there
04 Oct 15 UTC I was unable to input moves
04 Oct 15 UTC good game aswell
04 Oct 15 UTC Me too! Just barely made my orders.
04 Oct 15 UTC turns out you had it won in the end though anyway
04 Oct 15 UTC ah okay. Key move from you was choice to take tunis early instead of naples. So you ahd the game in the bag. Thought I could have stopped you there
04 Oct 15 UTC You were close. Kinda sucks when people bail early. It does throw the game a bit.
04 Oct 15 UTC advice for central powers in gunboat games? I had no idea what to do without being able to make alliances, thus the floundering
04 Oct 15 UTC Nice work, Turkey. Don't think I had much chance with Germany unwilling to help, but you did a good job taking me apart quickly.

Austria, I think you were toast as long as Italy wouldn't stop hitting you and I was too weak to help. With England hitting me from up top, Italy needs to see quickly that Turkey has a big advantage
04 Oct 15 UTC Thanks Russia. You put up a good fight.

Austria, It's really hard to be Austria in GB due to the fact that there's no communication. If you can find one friend, you might stand a chance. Speaking of which, I didn't attack you for a long time, even when you were attacking me. In fairness, you saw that I had an advantage and given that its WTA, that may not have been a bad move. In your position, I would have attacked Italy instead of Turkey, at least to get my SC's back.
04 Oct 15 UTC In terms of opening with Austria, it's so common to see the opening Italy made, that it's probably safer to go with F Tri M ADR followed by M Ven. With one build from Serbia, you can re-take Tri even if Italy doesn't backtrack. Alternately move your fleet as you did, but A Vie M Tri, and A Bud M Gal. Either way you play it, I'd say don't try to get two builds. Be safer, be patient.
04 Oct 15 UTC Correction, I attacked to take Bul, but then stopped for some time.
04 Oct 15 UTC its tough to be austria in a gunboat. Don;t really know what to say. i guess the best thing to happen to austria in a gunboat would be to avoid an aggressive Italy. And if you are really lucky he will go west immediately. But that is so rare you are always going to be in for a gamble with austria.
04 Oct 15 UTC Turkey played a solid game. Pretty much we both benefited from Russia Early on and everyone else on the board did little to stop us before it got to a point where we were symbiotic. Had I not missed orders a couple of turns I could have stood a chance but I would still have to shift units earlier.

With builds I was hoping to have complete control of the seas and didn't want to take the gambles that would have allowed me more dominance and mobility on the continent. pretty much in order to avoid having to shift units i just built too many fleets. Had i gotten armies onto the continent earlier it way have been different. Also France throwing away munich and for the rasons discussed above my inability to take it it falls to the Turkey that is surging forward.

Point is good game Turkey.

But also Italy CDing was a total bitch.. Stay in the game it could have gone totally different. But really that would have either been a three way draw, or I am just saying this because I am bitter at not getting a better shot at a solo
10 Oct 15 UTC Sorry I had to leave, guys. Work called mid-game. Good one, E and T.
10 Oct 15 UTC No worries. Happens.
