07 May 20 UTC first 2 way tie
07 May 20 UTC Good game everyone!
07 May 20 UTC Well played Austria; if you had been a few turns slower around the 1909 mark, I could have gotten the solo.
07 May 20 UTC But I did not properly secure my gains in Russia, and you made me pay for it.
07 May 20 UTC i think the screw up i did, that may have cost me the solo after that was the army in triest in 1911 blocking my fleet build. but excellently played
07 May 20 UTC I'm not sure that would have made a significant difference; the problem wasn't that you had too few fleets, it was that you couldn't break into the Tyrrhenian Sea
07 May 20 UTC the issue was not having the 5 fleets in the right places in time. as i would have just needed to have my fleets lines up along the coast.
Pie pokes GoL
tus moves to tyr sea supported by rome/nap/ion-sea. so i can break into it
07 May 20 UTC setting that up would take time to do safely and having a 6th fleet would make it safer to accomplish
07 May 20 UTC True, I suppose if you had broken in the Tyrrhenian before I broke through into the Gulf of Lyons, you probably could have won. But that would have taken incredible foresight, especially when Italy still had armies defending his home territory.
07 May 20 UTC gg well played all. I'm honestly reasonably happy to have survived till the end. Italy this is why opening move to piedmont is not great for either of us, just locks the two of us against each other for the whole game whilst england and austria grew bigger. Once Italy commited to attacking me not sure what else i could have done. ( i should have gone for a fleet in brest in autumn 1901, though at that point in the game i was trying to ally England so though army was less aggresive.
08 May 20 UTC Yeah sorry about that. It was my first gunboat with Italy and I'd heard attacking France had better opportunities than in normal games. Didn't amount to much for either of us in the end though, although well done for outlasting me!
08 May 20 UTC Actually, Italy, it's kind of my fault that your plan didn't work. The Italian attack on France IS typically the better play, but it only works out when Germany or England (or, even better, both) also join in. But I didn't join in, and although Germany did, my attack on him in Spring 1903 forced him to play defense instead of continuing the attack on France.
08 May 20 UTC Italy is in that awkward spot between the 2 other triangles with no set enemies or allies. and vulnerable to attack from both sides with little notice
08 May 20 UTC Hmm i typically prefer a slightly more neutral opening for italy (Venice hold, rome to naples, naples to ionian). But yes it did'nt help that England left me alone in the early game.
08 May 20 UTC The reason I did was the fact that you never had more than one fleet. I knew I could leave my flank exposed to you without any real danger of getting stabbed. So, in a certain sense, your army build accomplished what you were hoping—but in the long run, it meant that I was able to expand elsewhere while you remained trapped in stalemate.
