EOG: theta hat

EOGs below. A very interesting game.

Basically went as follows. I make a neutral opening, while Germany decides to log in at the last second, and enters a ridiculous set of orders. So I and England ally to take him out.
I send my fleets south to fight Italy, and with Austrian help he is taken down and goes CD. At this time with Rome and Naples I look to stab England hoping for a fast win, but obviously calculations went wrong and England was prepared.

I take the 3 centre loss and realign with England. Austria seeing I stabbed England, let down his guard and I swamp his centres with my fleets (he managed to keep one fleet). This is where it gets interesting - England loses ground in Russia for a bit while I gain unexpectedly swift gains in Austrian home soil and I start to catch up on England. Now if this had continued, I would have the supply centres to win without attacking England so Austria calls for a "grand alliance". England promptly stabs but this time I am prepared and I beat off his assault while mopping up the Balkans. England seeing his stab failed then frantically tries to revive a 2-way proposal, but I have the victory in the bag and take it.

Good game everyone. Impressive play coldsoup, but France is my strongest country and we both timed our stabs rather badly. But the last war was the one that mattered and I was literally shaking.

I hated my life in that game haha. Everything seemed horrible in 1901. A new Germany, an aggressive Italy, and a non-responsive Turkey(it was his first time, so it's ok). Everything seemed so great after 1901 though, but when you came at me I realized the one thing I am accustomed to wasn't there to help/delay your attack. The Italians were so anti-Austrian and then CDd after 1902/3 it left me kinda without a provider of fleets. Ah well, both you and England played great.

Boat, one tip about playing Austria, always build your own fleets whenever possible. Or you will lose after the midgame.

Haha, yeah I got caught, and I am only to blame for it. I only started popping them out in 04, and I guess by then it was too late :(

I'll admit to not knowing how to play Austria very well.

Wow! Well, I was perfectly happy teaming up against an absent-minded silent Germany while Russia didn't seem to mind his homeland being invaded and going for a Turkish vacation instead. But I got distracted by Russia and let Boat get too much of Germany. By the time it was all gone I was friendly/neutral with Boat and had a very cooperative France.The problem was I was cornered with nowhere to go. I knew France could be stabbed, but I wasn't quite there yet. I waited and held/support held everything to see who would attack me first knowing that I could then get a 2v1. France took the bait, and all hell came down on him for a single season and he became very cooperative again. I played a very slow and steady game, preferring to hold and slowly move the front one piece at a time, but I admit to not knowing how to fight in Russia. It's by far my weakest country and even with Russia mainland given to me I was still losing it. The redeeming factor was having France cooperate again. I thought at the time I was stabbing at the perfect time, but after some reflection it was a year too late. I realize I should have gone in a year early to take Paris and Belgium. Ah well. It was a lot of fun and I learned my lesson. I should have taken the draw earlier, but like I told you in private chat... I have never taken a solo and I felt this was my chance. The last couple of years I just paniced so much that I started missing more and more orders every turn.

I will say that it would be nice if there was a life variant that scaled the time/phase up a couple of minutes near the end game. Part of it I'm sure is my inexperience at the end game, and part of it nerves of such a well fought battle, but I sure would like more time to think

Look, Foreigners, I don't hate you guys, but
Like seriously, you all have no culture. Most of you don't even make good movies. Many of you talk funny, and don't eat enough meat. Try driving an SUV, it makes you feel powerful. And seriously, what do you do for role models? I mean you don't have ANYTHING that compares to Paris Hilton or Kim Kardashian. Also, why can't you afford designer clothes like a real person? USA, baby. USA.

Why does the timer NOT REFLECT THE ACTUAL TIME LEFT?
I noticed in a live game yesterday that a couple of times I changed my moves and hit "save" when the clock still said 2 seconds or something like that, but I got the "game has moved on, please refresh" thingy.

What is up with that? Why not have the clock actually indicate how many seconds you have left to get in your moves. Sometimes that can make a difference in a live game.

Play By Carrier Pigeon
Abgemacht has given his blessing for a carrier pigeon variant wherein players communicate via carrier pigeons. Who's up for it? I have six little birdies just waiting to fly the coup with diplomatic intrigue! Just think of the metagaming possibility when you intercept someone else's bird!
