25 Sep 19 UTC Missed my opportunity to take Munich in Spring 1913. Not sure if it'd have been enough.
25 Sep 19 UTC I made some blunders making it to the stalemate line. could have survived against you a bit longer... anyway, this series is almost over
25 Sep 19 UTC GG all.
25 Sep 19 UTC Articles suggesting the Bohemian Crusher is a good idea should probably be redacted at this point.
25 Sep 19 UTC Well, when Russia opens with back-to-back moves to Galicia, and then just sits there, the Bohemian crusher is not very effective. I'll admit.
25 Sep 19 UTC True, but the Crusher ís designed to ensure Italy gets a bigger share of Austria. That typically comes out of Russia's spoils. I don't consider it a pro-Russian opener.
25 Sep 19 UTC Lil surprised france let me stay in the draw
25 Sep 19 UTC There were two reasons.
25 Sep 19 UTC Firstly, I was afraid that you threw this game.
I thought you were able to through
this game, if Turkish army move forward when I take kiel.
25 Sep 19 UTC Secondly, I wanted to go solo.
I tried to make Turkish army disband and take Ber after Kie.
25 Sep 19 UTC England supported you into Denmark though. Could be an easy one-two-punch.
25 Sep 19 UTC The first support was 1917 A, final phase.
Game was ended when I saw that.
25 Sep 19 UTC I had already voted draw.
25 Sep 19 UTC Fair
26 Sep 19 UTC Good game all, glad to be in the draw. I wanted to see Mun being resolved safely before risking any maneuvers around Kie/Den. My thinking was to only support a move to Den in Fall, and best in conjunction with the move to Kie. There was clearly a fail-safe set of moves, but in hindsight I might have withdrawn my draw vote to alert France to this.
26 Sep 19 UTC My main concern was that Turkey didn’t sufficiently withdraw from Russia, so if the German F Den was dislodged in Den, it could retreat to Ska and cut support from Nwy. If this had coincided with the appearance of a Turkish army in Lvn, that would have been game over. Hence my thinking - only in Fall and hope that Kie was captured at the same time, because if not done at the same time, Germany could have disbanded A Kie and used F Ska to try and throw the game (if they were so inclined). All in all still pretty risky, I think.
