13 Mar 20 UTC such a shame the original Egypt did not stick around, as the new guy was obviously not skilled enough to set up a basic stalemate line...

fall 10, just build a fleet, and move it to Red sea, set up a basic stalemate line, hold Petra, all those fleets up and around Cilician Sea, and especially that convoy, totally worthless, just set up the lines and support everything to hold, so easy to do.

Petra was so easily held, and Alexandria, omg...

And the turn prior, disband the retreat from Cher, rebuild in Memphis, just support hold..

Persia's lines were absolutely crumbling up north, all you had to do was support hold...
13 Mar 20 UTC Don't hold it against me, it was well in year 12, i noticed that the pot is this high....also it is maybe the first Ancient med map i was playing and once i realized i screwed up and began to look what was actually the stalemate line here it was over. I apologize for any inconvenience i have caused.
13 Mar 20 UTC Petra shouldn't have fallen that is for sure, neither was cyprus, but i didn't take this game seriously enough, one of the drawbacks of open position...lack of investment.
13 Mar 20 UTC It wasn't over. The last turn just hold Alexandria. likely I was going to get one or two more up north, all you had to do was hold...
13 Mar 20 UTC And with this build I was going to build a new army in cirta and send it to bayuda, and your line would have been Rock solid.
13 Mar 20 UTC And with my fleets now freed up I was going to dislodge you from libyan Sea into Cyrene.
13 Mar 20 UTC What can i say, Alexandria was a blunder, one that costed us the draw, i take full responsibility and i am deeply sorry. Hopefully i will not make the same mistake twice.
13 Mar 20 UTC I see your point and now it is crystal clear...
