Game won by josemurc (28688 D)
24 Sep 20 UTC Spring, 1903: GameMaster: Game was extended due to at least 1 member failing to enter orders and having an excused missed turn available. This has un-readied all orders.
22 Oct 20 UTC Good game everyone. My bad for getting overzealous with taking Germany out of the draw. After not taking the opportunity to move into Berlin in Spring 1911, the fate of this game was sealed.
22 Oct 20 UTC Good game. I shoulder some of the blame as well (not to take away from some great play by Austria). I was also overzealous and took a shot at additional gains at the expense of locking up the Mediterranean when I had the chance in 1908.
22 Oct 20 UTC Great game Josemurc,
very frustrating with a crazy turc attacking me non stop, even with his last move from BS; his country totally red!
And then, I thought I would make it to the Draw, resisting in north Russia, but, no, in 1908; 3 Austrian fleet move West and France choses to attack England ?! I don't know, BAM47, you thought you could resist with 2 fleet, that PIE alone was strong enough facing 3 Austrian units? look at the map in spring 08 :-)
22 Oct 20 UTC With all due respect, you were running around conquering Scandinavia 1910-11 when I was trying to form a stalemate line and fight off France simultaneously :)
22 Oct 20 UTC Definitely a learning experience for me. I’ve had some success in lower and mid level games, and I’m just beginning to venture into these higher tier games. So far I’ve had success by being aggressive in some situations, and expecting a certain frequency of imperfect play from my opponents. Now at this higher level, I’m trying to rebalance that calculation. I thought long and hard in 1908. Made the wrong call, but hope to learn from it.
22 Oct 20 UTC gg all
22 Oct 20 UTC Well done Austria. You had me from the start.
23 Oct 20 UTC @France, as long as you hold Tunis, Marseilles and Spain, you make it impossible for a southern victory. Typically Tunis is the 18th sc. That's why, no matter what, you have to run for these key points and hold there. (GAS H MAR; POR H SPA)
And I had to hold LIV and MOS; England had to hold PRU and BER.
@England, I was assuming my side of the stalemate line: Sev was lost (you cannot defend SEV) and I needed 3 units : STP S MOS; LIV S MOS. So I needed one more sc to keep that third unit. From my position in NWY I moved to SWE in the spring thinking to bounce you out. ( I was not sure how conscious you were that I needed that extra sc) Then I retreated to NWY + disband it.
It's a pity you didn't cover Prussia / Berlin on time, because taking out Germany could have worked. Spring 1911 you moved Denmark to the wrong side :-)
23 Oct 20 UTC Understood on Nwy. Where Denmark moved wouldnt matter as long as I didnt make that move into Berlin :(
23 Oct 20 UTC Very hard game. At the final 50/50 berlin/prussia. Well defended by russia. Gg for all. Another one?
23 Oct 20 UTC GUNBOAT 231020. Come on!
