Draw-Size Scoring
Game won by Draugnar (0 D X)
08 Apr 11 UTC Spring, 1911: I honestly didn't expect to get in. I figured I'd have to force my way in to Liv from StP (with Bar falling in behind) using Bal and Bot then Tap Pru to make it in. I kind of expected to get Rom and Ber both next year, but the screw up of Pie ended that anyhow.
08 Apr 11 UTC Spring, 1911: I guess I'll take the win. Unless someone from Game 1's draw wins or there is a two way draw, I should at least be in the top 4.
08 Apr 11 UTC Spring, 1911: hmm you have some problem with the way you see tactics.
08 Apr 11 UTC Spring, 1911: And what do you mean?
08 Apr 11 UTC Spring, 1911: If you mean at Tus, GoL was ordered to support Pie to Tus and would have made it in had Pie actually done the move because TyS tapped Rom to stop the support.

StP to Liv with two supports would have overpowered Liv to StP with one support and Bar following in behind would have bounced Mos as Pru would have been forced to protect Ber. The only shot to hold Liv would be Mos and War both SH it.
08 Apr 11 UTC Spring, 1911: it was obvious that you could take ber and end the game. austria would normally try cutting mun support, that's why you would get it from mun with mun-ber with 2 supports. you would also protect mun by moving there from ruhr or bur with 1 support. the only way we could answer that would be ber-mun with 2 supports for a bounce. but if you have foreseen this response you would just take ber from kie or bal (like you did) while supporting mun to hold with 2 supports (like you did). the strange part is that you chose the correct combination of moves without actually seeing any of those moves.
08 Apr 11 UTC Spring, 1911: when I saw bal-ber with kie support I was certain and amazed that you foresaw the ber-mun with 2 supports move :P
08 Apr 11 UTC Spring, 1911: I would have had to take a small risk in the fall, but with the way the orders had been being predictable of late (part of why I went ahead and tried for Ber), I felt confident they'd continue in their predictable manner.
08 Apr 11 UTC Spring, 1911: You had tried them before, so I thought you might again. So I did see that, but I half expected you to change it up and support hold Ber.
08 Apr 11 UTC Spring, 1911: I only had three units on Ber, so Pru and Sil could have held it no matter what I did this turn.
08 Apr 11 UTC Spring, 1911: anyway, it would be hard to actually achieve a draw but I'm happy with the survival result as under the circumstances of this game I should normally have been defeated as Italy.
08 Apr 11 UTC Spring, 1911: btw sil just moved in there. last turn there was only pru to support hold ber.
08 Apr 11 UTC Spring, 1911: Oh wait, I forgot, you only had the one because someone screwed up and left Sil open. Maybe that was what I was thinking when I did that. But I would never have risked Mun to take Ber.
08 Apr 11 UTC Spring, 1911: And I never did stab you either. I let Turkey do the dirty work at Tun and then kicked him out of it. :-)
08 Apr 11 UTC Spring, 1911: there was no risk for mun (ruhr-mun with bur support or the opposite bounces with boh-mun with tyr support or the opposite, no unit in sil at that time)
08 Apr 11 UTC Spring, 1911: I'm off to bed. 5 am here. I have a court at 9 am :P
08 Apr 11 UTC Spring, 1911: Good point. I just ever expected Sil to be left open like that. Good luck in court tomorrow. Hope you win if you are actually arguing a case.
08 Apr 11 UTC Spring, 1911: *never expected
08 Apr 11 UTC Spring, 1911: And I just remembered why I didn't do the Mun move. I didn't want to have to protect a potentially empty Mun and A recently captured Bur at the same time. Of course, Kie/Ruhr/Bur) would cover Mun and Bal cover Ber, but still.
08 Apr 11 UTC Spring, 1911: hmm so you are a conservative player. I ll remember that for next games.
Court secretary is on a strike for 2 hrs...
Then I ll have to wait about 4 hrs and the case will probably be postponed to another date.
Maybe I should get a smart phone and use it for all that lost time playing live :P
