EOG Gunboat Means Never Having to Say You're Sorry-12
Game Link: gameID=68341 Hey guys, thought I'd create a thread for anyone to offer their thoughts. For my part, I think my play as France highlights the importance of sticking with a game even if things look really tough - I was fighting off 3 countries for the first half of the game but still came out on top. To get such a stiff competition situation was great fun! Thanks for the interesting game all and I look forward to no. 13.
I messed up the French invasion as Italy; I was expecting English pressure. As it happened England attacked Germany instead, letting France concentrate his units and retake the poorly defended Italian centres. At the same time I had to hold Turkey off as best I could, then France came to the rescue. I'm still surprised how France recovered...
Turkey, you had a clear line to taking Naples and Rome. All you had to do was to convoy an army to Apulia and France could not defend both Piedmont and Rome. France should have moved a unit to Marseilles; it would have been a clear line then.
I was Germany. I turned around to deal with a possible Juggernaut, and got stabbed by England for my pains. I spent the rest of the game slowly dying, and at the end helping Turkey as best I could to screw England.
@Gobbledygook: Yeah, I saw that but it didn't seem worth it to keep going for two or three more years just to eliminate one more player. I was unable to solo, unfortunately, I'm not sure if I missed an opportunity or if it just a matter of England and France coming together at the exact right time.
Sarg, great game playing defense. I'm definitely up for a rematch anytime.
@Frank. IDK if you could have soloed or not, but I don't draw if there is a chance of me getting rid of another player. The pot and GR aren't my motivation, just pissing off a player who felt they "deserved" a share of the pot when they were the weakest link. Eliminating Italy should have been a priority for everyone, except Italy of course.
If I were Turkey, I'd wipe Italy out too. I don't think the "Eliminating Italy should have been a priority for everyone" is a fair comment though. No doubt you (and I) agree that eliminating small irrelevant countries before a draw is the correct play, but there are others (like Frank) who believe all countries who managed to hold the line deserve equally in a draw, and I respect them for their views. Imposing your views upon everyone else is wrong.
Hello all. I entered my orders and to my suprise, they didnt happen! I had my fleet norway move to st. petersburg with support from moscow, and England had his army st. petersburg move to Norway with support from Barents Sea fleet.
Where people would be entertained by a 9-year old multi-accounter who gives himself away by using suspiciously similar spelling mistakes on both his accounts, or uses the same crappy translator to let people know that it is time to "ENJOY TO LIVE GAME!!!"...
I have sent a message to the game mods about a no ingame messaging World XI game Im in days ago without reply - and I think its a clear case of either A) metagaming or B) Multi-account because the level of co-op without any supposed comms is unbelievable.
So far nothing at all from the mods - not even an acknowledgement of the mail - what should I do?
