Sun 17 Feb UTC Good game all!
Mon 18 Feb UTC Indeed. Thought you were about to go for the solo so my next turn was going to be me mobilizing north lol...
Mon 18 Feb UTC Might have been too late turkey.
Mon 18 Feb UTC Surprised Russia voted draw.
Mon 18 Feb UTC gg all
Mon 18 Feb UTC I might have been able to solo but Turkey was such a good partner in the most-fun juggernaut I've ever been a part of that soloing would have diminished my satisfaction. That is rarely the case, btw, but if felt right in this case.
Mon 18 Feb UTC I am glad it felt right :) I have had few successful juggernauts and this one did work well
Mon 18 Feb UTC Turkey, you could have gently taken a Russian SC, without stabbing him to avoid this late danger we are facing had the game continued. You do this by taking just one SC, but NOT moving a bunch of units towards him It's a safety and balancing move, you should have done that.
Mon 18 Feb UTC I wasn't concerned about Russia taking anything just yet and wanted to honor the trust put in earlier in the game. If this next turn played out, my armies all would've mobilized along my line while also threatening Sevastopol. I think I would've held, or taken a couple of SCs before it would've all been said and done.
Mon 18 Feb UTC But thank you for the tip either way :)
Mon 18 Feb UTC well, letting someone get to 14 SC, and more importantly, to his position, is extremely dangerous, as I do not have the north stalemated. We are lucky he was generous and drew now, because I think a Russian solo from this position was easily achievable. Most players, from his current position, would solo.
Mon 18 Feb UTC One more question for you turkey, were your fleets going to hold or pour at me?
Mon 18 Feb UTC hold, or move on me in force, which had you ordered?
Mon 18 Feb UTC I ordered a hold at this point. I took your moves to indicate you were giving up holding on me and focusing on getting a stalemate with Russia, so I didn't want to deter that any further. I was assuming Russia was mobilizing based off the last turn. I had this setup:
Tus -> Ven
Pie Support Tus
Greece -> Serbia
Trieste support Greece
Con -> Bulg
Ankara -> Armenia
Ionian -> Aegean
Tunis Hold
Tyr SHold Tunis
Adr SHold Trieste
Mon 18 Feb UTC okay, good, that's smart, because if you have done a full scale invasion against me, I would have thrown the game to Russia. You saw that risk right?
Mon 18 Feb UTC Indeed I did - You telegraphed it in Fall 1911. I have only ever seen a Juggernaut go down to just Turkey and Russia once. I was playing cautiously from this point forward based off the Fall 1911 moves.
Mon 18 Feb UTC And I have thrown many a game to players out of spite lol...
Mon 18 Feb UTC okay, good job everyone, well played.
Mon 18 Feb UTC by the way, as as interesting side point, I am Russia's mentor in the mentor program. Of course, we did not know that we were both in this game until after the game, as we only discuss games afterwards, not during.

Anyone else want any feedback?
Mon 18 Feb UTC Austria are you super new?

There is sort of an unwritten rule on Rumania that's worth noting: "Never in the spring"

This applies to Turkey, Russia and Austria pretty much all the time from 1901 through about 1903 or 1904. Rumania tends to be a death trap for everyone in spring moves, go for the money in the fall, not the spring. There are exceptions, of course, but often the guy in Rumania in the spring isn't there in the fall!

Going straight into Rumania in 1901 is suicidal...

Belgium is kind of the same thing.
