And to whoever is Italy: a Lepanto sounds all right, I am sorry for not replying for that long but the time zones are a bit of an issue there.

Claesar, can we work together and do the following: you tell which neighbors we have in common and we cooperate against whoever this is.
We have EMC, TMOSW, Squigs and Goldfinger as mutual neighbours. Not sure yet who the final player is. Which would you like to hit together, and how do you propose we divide the spoils?

Nobody suggested a Lepanto. Blue Water Lepanto requires very different moves. If you're Austria, move Triest to Adriatic in your first move to appease Goldfinger. And maybe research the moveset.. Otherwise, Goldie will be quite irate.

To my knowledge, both TMOSW and EMC are impersonating England, which is hardly an immediate neighbor for Austria; also, there were more than seven people writing in this thread already; one of the ideas was that even somebody not giving out orders may drop by and impersonate a country.

Thanks for the explanation, I never saw this term before.

As I have said in interest thread I was going for letting other people do my negotiations while I just join the game. But the fact that the one to claim Russia was Hosuke makes my blood boil, down the fake czar!

Claesar, while I appreciate your attempt to test the Austrian's tendency to stick to a promise (or to detect a fake). What is very unusual is your plan to keep the unstable Austro-Hungarian empire full of different cultures stuck with duct tape. I believe the strategic border region in Galicia is hard to keep as a DMZ in both the long and short term.

To all the claimants to the English throne, how would you resolve the situation in Scandinavia?

You get Sweden, I get Norway, the Germans get Denmark, and Skagerrak is a DMZ?

Your insistance on using 1-2 units to move to Galicia every turn is why you frequently do poorly with Austria and Russia. Even in Gunboat neither power should go there in Autumn 1901. Here, we play press. In high-level press games it's easy to keep Gal DMZ, by talking to each other.

In this game, it's even easier. Because there will be swift retribution if you don't.

In normal games, you have to think about it a bit more:

-What does Austria gain from DMZ stabbing in Gal? A 50-50 shot at a 1-centre stab, a mortal enemy, and a backline that's completely exposed to Italy. Good players don't make this move unless they are certain Turkey opens to Armenia.

-What does Russia gain from DMZ stabbing Gal? Also a 50-50 shot at a 1-centre stab, a mortal enemy, and a certain bounce in Sweden. Any half-decent Germany player would. Good players would never make this move unless they were certain Italy attacks as well.

Hmmm, with the absence of any Austrian remarks or anyone speaking to me, I may have to rethink my plans.

A blue water Lepanto sounds fine, too. I'm sorry I didn't respond.

e.m.c, if you're going to be pretending to be both England and Turkey, I will choose to believe you're neither.

Having heard nothing from the real Turkey or Russia, I will continue on with my plans for the blue water with Austria.
Which country I'm mainly negotiating as should be clear lol

Let me put it this way, I shitpost in reply to what I see as shitposts. Does that help? :)

Just figure it out between yourself which of you is the real one, I have too little experience so I'm fine with either version.

Well Austria, I'll be following the plan then, and kicking my army over to Piedmont and up to Venice while moving out to Ionian. I think the Blue Water is an excellent way to get Austria's fleet involved quickly in events out to the East.

Honestly, I didn't quite understand the reasoning behind Blue Water; you can't move the fleet into Ionian because it is needed for Italian convoy, and a move to Albania provides better pressure onto the Balkans.

It allows for a forward retreat of the fleet, which is better than what can occur with the fleet in Greece.

Also, ideally with our DMZ in Galicia, Austrian armies should already be in Greece and Serbia come next spring.

Read up on the Blue Water Lepanto again. Italy doesn't convoy to Tunis, but takes it with a fleet.
