I like the way ATC gets about with Austria.. In three years he's attacked Germany, France, Russia and now Italy, taking Tunis.

But in the Spring 04 move uclubb, or uclabb, I forget the exact spelling, with Turkey has attacked a vulnerable Austria, taking Rumania and Serbia, and with a fleet in Albania, looks set to get either Trieste of Budapest as well in the Autumn move. See what happens when everyone is nice to Turkey, sooner or later the beast reveals his true nature.

Autumn 04 Retreats. Well uclabb with Turkey has speared Austria wickedly, taking Trieste and Budapest as well as Serbia and Rumania, so Turkey grows from six sc's to ten sc's. ATC trusted uclabb and has been betrayed, but uclabb has put himself in a position to get a solo win, so it's clear that uclabb has decided that attacking Austria was necessary in order to move towards a solo win.

Poor old ATC, he's getting a hiding. Captainmeme with France might be a good chance to solo this game.. apparently the way "through Munich to fight Turkey" is first via Holland..and might be also via Kiel and Berlin.. I wait eagerly to see.. Uclabb with Turkey continues to prosper.

Ho ho. Go Captainmeme. You've now got Tunis, most of Germany and crippled England. What a game.

Mind you CM. If you hadn't bounced England in Liverpool and Edinburgh then he wouldn't be able to build the new unit for Berlin. Cannot figure out uclabb's "retreat" style of play that move. But there's a lot I cannot understand with this game

Thanks for the commentary, MM. It was fun & interesting to read your thoughts as the game was going on.

Uclabb's retreat style was an attempt to solo against a stalemate line. He knew that England and I could hold him at 17 very easily if we worked together by forming the MAO-Spa-Mar-Mun-Ber-StP line, so he was never going to solo if he just pressed on. By giving me Tunis he gave me the opportunity to go for the solo (by taking Ber, Scandinavia & StP), but if I'd done so, either I wouldn't have had the units to hold Tunis, or Gold would have thrown him Munich/StP and he'd have won the game.

It was a fun game to watch. Despite appearances at times, it seems that you and Goldfinger do "love each other long time" ( ho ho ) uclabb did very well with Turkey, but Turkey suffers when it gets bigger from the tyranny of distance, it's home sc's where it raises new units are so far from the centre, there's often a two, three year delay before new units can be used to lunch into Germany for example. Whereas France has an advantage in generally being able to deploy units more quickly to the "scene of the crime".
ATC's first few years with Austria were surprisingly adventurous, but he paid a heavy price when uclabb moved on him. Still you cannot blame uclabb, opportunity like that doesn't come around often for the poor blighter with Turkey. Uclabb was lucky in that there was never an effective alliance pair out of Russia, Austria and Italy who formed and went after him in a determined way.
I'd like to express sympathy for Tom Bombarding with Germany, but I'd be lying through clenched teeth. Watching his demise helped exorcise some personal demons of mine that he gave me in a game when be had Germany and I had Russia. Losing Munich to Austria at the get go was a most unusual occurrence for anyone with Germany. Hope it gives him psychological scars for ages..LoL ( just kidding.. or am I ?).
Thanks to all players for the entertainment.
The latest game I am spectating is the 31,500 point gunboat game. I've signed up for Demon Overload's gunboat competition, and I virtually never play grubby gunboat games. So I'm studying up on it. Can't be that difficult, surely. LoL.

But I did enjoy the commentary. It was fun to read as the game was going.
Yes, cheers for following along and giving some commentary
MajorMitchell (984 D)

Thanks for indulging me & allowing me to make posts about your game. Maybe that could be a new feature, we could discuss the idea. Obviously the restrictions like not commenting about gunboat games while they are in progress has to stay. I might suggest it in that how to improve WebDiplomacy thread.
Players who have an interest in giving commentary on games apply to be "recognised commentators" ..so there is a screening process. Commentators agree to adhere to certain rules, eg no offensive language, they have to have played a minimum number of games, be ranked at least at say the top two levels, or be given a dispensation on that in the screening process.

Are countries assigned randomly?
New to this site here, so sorry if this is answered elsewhere that I didn't find. Are countries assigned randomly when a game starts? (I'm noticing in the Championship Belt Game Series that xorxes always plays Austria and captainmeme always plays France, but have not found any setting for choosing a country or assigning preferences or anything.)

They wiggle around and travel places on this cool map that looks a little like real life. I watched this one car strolling down a highway. This is neat. How do I take over one of these cartoon car thingys

Not all orders (most notably support orders) are shown on the small preview map of a game and, especially in Gunboat, this is pretty problematic.
