07 Sep 17 UTC Spring, 1901: Welcome.
07 Sep 17 UTC Spring, 1901: so these games are nice to get some ideas of the movements.
But it usually has nothing to do with diplomacy as it is pure fight. Thats also the reason they are allways unranked - thus you get back your bet at the end.
07 Sep 17 UTC Spring, 1901: Ahhh excellent
07 Sep 17 UTC Spring, 1901: One main key for units is, to take them into a long line.
To try it with a wedge formation will never be of success.
07 Sep 17 UTC Spring, 1901: As soon as your units are strongly detached you propably loose them. Only in some strategic positions its usefull to keep 1 unit alone (the case in St Peter for example)
07 Sep 17 UTC Spring, 1901: Or for Italy to keep one unit in Piedmont can be very usefull against french attack. France would need to get a fleet into Gulf of Lyon and another unit in Mareseilles to get the overhand. While possibly Venice got a new unit supporting this.
07 Sep 17 UTC Spring, 1901: Unfortunaetly i now need to go.
if you have any questions don't hesitate to point them.
08 Sep 17 UTC Spring, 1901: but you should place orders. 1v1 also count on reliability rate ;)
08 Sep 17 UTC Autumn, 1901: Thanos the tips, what do you mean by wedge?
08 Sep 17 UTC Autumn, 1901: a wedge... like: < so one unit at the front
13 Sep 17 UTC :-/ missing turns especially builds is not good.
13 Sep 17 UTC if you sttill like to play this we could keep positions and finish the moves and go go next builds...
