Re: 2018 Gunboat Tournament

There should be 0 AT two-ways in a tournament gunboat. There's just no way to prevent a stab, and in a tournament you should always expect a stab. As I said, nothing on you here, but I'm not-so-low-key pissed at Turkey for making it that much harder for me to break into the top group. imma be mad w...

Re: 2018 Gunboat Tournament

is it good or bad that 2/3 games that were 5-way draws had me eliminated :P You fought against elimination like a lion and when you were finally done for, everyone else was too exhausted to play on. It's always sucky as Turkey when AIR gang up on you in gunboat :P (otherwise i feel like I usually d...

Re: Italy and Greece

If given the opportunity to take Greece in Fall of 1901, is ITY statisticly or strategically better off putting the fleet in Ion there or convoying his army? That would probably depend on who he's friendly with. Fleet is anti-Turkey, army is anti-Austria. My guess is there isn't a fundamental answe...

Why a failure? I have had a lot of succes by closing down a flank quickly.
To clarify, I’m talking about a failure on the part of the power who got targeted, not the peolle killing him.

Re: Sealion from Germany's Perspective: 1901

If England smells a sealion, it's usually a good idea to try and get Austria into Galicia and Turkey into Armenia, which puts Russia in a pretty nasty spot. Getting Italy and Austria to be EXTREMELY friendly can also potentially be helpful; if Italy is in Pie and F Tunis in winter 1901, France has p...

Re: Why does Italy go NMR so often??

Fwiw i think austria even in hands of competent players is easy to kill early in a LOT of games.

Italy being unpopular isnt surprising but I quite enjoy playing italy, it’s such a fun challenge as you have so many different options fir alliances and growth!

Re: Spring 2018 Champions League

I don't know the cute names. If Austria opens Bud-Tri, Vie-Tyr, Tri-Alb, then gets into Pie Spr '02 (which can be forced), then the game is won/lost in Fall '02 with the Marseilles guessing game. Austria takes Marseilles Fall '02, Austria has won France occupies Marseilles in Fall '02 (and thus can...

Re: Announcing the 2018 GvI and FvA Showdowns

Yeah but I don't think the tourney winner is part of the contest :P

Who knows maybe I'll get on a hot streak and you can knock me out again :P

(I'm a bit sad I couldn't get knocked out by you in G/I but alas, I crapped out one round too early :P )

Re: Spring 2018 Champions League

I think a really big Austrian advantage is that you have a very realistic chance to just flat-out win the game on the first turn Open Porcupine against Belgian Waffle Open Anti-Alpine against any move to Pie You're just gonna win a LOT of the time. Open Anti-Alpine against Belgian Waffle (probably t...

Re: Announcing the 2018 GvI and FvA Showdowns

So I guess it's like... In F/A I got kicked to losers bracket from the last 16 in the winners bracket. I'm now in a new round of 16 there, plus there's 8 alive in winners... so I guess it's win this round make final 16? After that it's a new round of 8 (4 games), and then another round of 8 (4 games...

Re: Spring 2018 Champions League

I'd say that Austria has an advantage even at a high level
But the high level players game advantage is much lower than the newer players advantage
