20 Sep 18 UTC Autumn, 1902: 1) why did I skip moving my army to Rome and instead move to piedmont?
2) why did I move Munich to Kiel instead of holding?
21 Sep 18 UTC Autumn, 1902: 1) Not to take Marseilles, so to force me to protect Marseilles?
2) To gain tempo by moving to Silesia. To prevent me from taking Kiel. And there was a chance I wouldn't bother attacking it because layers.
21 Sep 18 UTC Autumn, 1902: You're retreating it to Tyrolia, I think
21 Sep 18 UTC Autumn, 1902: 1) I moved to Piedmon instead of Rome because I don't need to capture rome in order to get 3 builds. I was sure to take naples and STP, and even if you pushed me out of munich, I can retreat to berlin - which is what I'm going to do - so that I get 3 builds.
If I'm getting 3 builds, there's no reason to hurry into Rome. By putting my army in piedmont, you can't get through into piedmont with your build, and you might have to defend marseilles. I control the chokepoint.
2) that is correct
21 Sep 18 UTC Autumn, 1902: To elaborate more on my moving to piedmont, I really want to get a second fleet if possible, and by holding you back at Piedmont, I can freely build the fleet at trieste without having to guard against a possible attack on venice in 1903
22 Sep 18 UTC Spring, 1903: By the way, do you get the reference in the name?
22 Sep 18 UTC Spring, 1903: Is it from Hamilton?
22 Sep 18 UTC Spring, 1903: Yup :D
22 Sep 18 UTC Autumn, 1903: I love Hamilton
22 Sep 18 UTC Autumn, 1903: Yeah it’s a great show. Pretty much all intellectuals in the US are into it haha
22 Sep 18 UTC Autumn, 1903: You’re in big trouble this game. I have Berlin and Munich, and it’s very difficult for you to push me out once I have both of them.

Look carefully - you can’t push me out of Munich or Berlin with your armies. You need a fleet in Baltic Sea; that’s the only way you can hope to push me back. But you have no fleet anywhere close to that.

I don’t need stp or Tunis to win if I have Munich and Berlin.
22 Sep 18 UTC Autumn, 1903: My forcible disband of your army put you in dire straits. It’s really powerful to disband an opppents unit on the spring turn, as I said before.
22 Sep 18 UTC Autumn, 1903: So I should have sent it to Sweden instead?
22 Sep 18 UTC Autumn, 1903: Maybe so. You can go back and collect stp in the end-game. It’s very difficult to retake Munich and Berlin if you lose both, and actually if I set up stalemate positions, it could eventually become impossible.

I actually didn’t expect to get into Munich. I moved my army to Finland, anticipating that you would move to STP, in hopes that I could come down into Denmark and poke one of your armies or force you to move to Denmark to block me so that I could get into Munich and Berlin on a later turn.

Control of Munich, for a southern power, is asboslitrly essential because it is actually defensible once you capture it, which isn’t true of stp, and less true of Tunis and Berlin.

The purpose of putting an army into stp early isn’t to count on stp towards my 18 centers. It’s to force you to move your fleet to Norway in 1902 so that you have to miss out on putting your fleet in Denmark.
22 Sep 18 UTC Autumn, 1903: Well this is probably close to over now, but we can finish if you really want
22 Sep 18 UTC Autumn, 1903: I like to finish things
22 Sep 18 UTC Autumn, 1903: I’ll start another one though
