17 Jan 19 UTC Gg
17 Jan 19 UTC I kept on expecting the Italian to attack the Austrian but it never happened
17 Jan 19 UTC I think he did also except for the last 3

I never had a good shot at the solo even attacking him. Turkey was still viable and at best I'd have gotten 3 or 4 more.

When I play Italy I am.generally happy with a part of the draw
17 Jan 19 UTC The 2nd time I built an army in rome is when he got nervous. I didnt stab him.then.and.kept funneling armies west and after that he calmed down

I was a bit early in hitting russia though. U had taken Munich and Denmark and assumed you would be hard to dislodge from Germany so I took a shot in Norway

Did t work out. From there I just worked to help Austria kill turkey
17 Jan 19 UTC whenever i play italy i just immediately attack the austrian
17 Jan 19 UTC a large number of my wins have been as the italian
17 Jan 19 UTC You only have 5 wins
Italy 1
Germany 1
Turkey 2
France 1

I like looking at past games.of people and since u made the comment I thought I would look while carousing
18 Jan 19 UTC Maybe different sites?
The meta here is definitely as soon as I/A don't work together then Austria immediately gets killed and Italy won't fare well. I feel like occasionally Italy attacking Austria off the bat works, but especially in the higher level games it rarely works.
18 Jan 19 UTC GG Italy! I was really worried you were going to take Brest/ and push up from there since it really was not well defended until recently.

Glad to see the draw! GG everyone.
18 Jan 19 UTC As Austria if Italy stabs then I go full on him.and let Turkey and Russia have me

Hope it's a teaching moment
18 Jan 19 UTC I felt having all.of England was.more.kmportant to any long term.plans I had than breat and Paris

I could hold those scs with 2 units while pursuing a northern campaign

When russia stabbed Germany I saw a brief window open bit ot closed so fast that I never re visited it
18 Jan 19 UTC ive seen a game where the italian attacks the austrian but only gets trieste while the russian and the turk get everything else
18 Jan 19 UTC but then the italian was able to beat them both back because of italy's superior position in the mederterrainian
18 Jan 19 UTC If you only get trieste and Tunis and russiaand turkey cooperate it is quite virtually impossible to beat them.back

3 armies is enough to hold trieste but not hold the ionian

3 fleets u can hold the ionian but not trieste

Italy needs a full 6 units against a dedicated juggernaut

For me Italy can win killing Austria but needs Austria in the beginning
18 Jan 19 UTC Fine then
18 Jan 19 UTC Play your way
