Out of moderate respect for ulytau's authority, I am creating a companion thread for people who have been eliminated from his other thread to keep arguing about grammar, ulytau's thread, and how unjust the universe is for disliking how they (yes, *we*... sigh) write.
Would anyone like to join me for some passworded 5 gunboat games? I'd like to get as many people involved as possible for some fun gunboat games not orientated on points but that are still good quality. Add your name to the list if you're interested please. All games will be anonymous and 25 hour phase length, thank you.
Thanks. Turkey really wasn't doing you guys any favors that game, especially killing Italy at the end and losing any chance of taking Tunis in the process. By all accounts, we should have ended with a E-I-T three way, but I'll take a solo any day. Nice game all.
@2WL (England) - "killing Italy at the end and losing any chance of taking Tunis in the process" - Eh? Are you sure? 1) Italy survived. 2) Taking Tun before killing Italy? How? Especially with the support you give Italy - S1913 [Eng F(Tun) S Ita F(TyS) - IoN] and anyway, WeM+Tun can hold against TyS+IoN for ever, so how could I have taken Tun? I'm surprised you even let me into TyS in A1914, given how important TyS is and you could still take Spa, Por and Mar if you'd kept me out of TyS. <shakes head>
"we should have ended with a E-I-T" - Don't you mean "E-F-T"? By A1914 I'd taken out Italy (bar one unit) while France still had 4 SCs.
Oh, and Poozer (Italy) - that one unit was a real pain. I had to keep attacking it to prevent you taking a second SC and killing it would have been very hard without putting 3 units on the job, which I obviously couldn't spare. Well played. Well played indeed.
I think his point was that I was screwed regardless, and Italy could have been saved had you not continued to attack him when he still had several centers. I like to think I could have thrown the game though.
Praed asked me to sit in for his account since he has RL concerns to take care of for the next week to ten days. This includes game 8 in this series. I don't really know what the procedure would be here, since you don't know which country Praed is, but you do know that he's in the game, so I thought I'd let everyone know.
What is this I don't even. It's entirely too legit for me to comprehend in this tired stupor, but I decided to try it anyway, so I picked the Huron. The Iroquois finally fall, only twenty years and 50 rebellions later...
Why does Germany go to Sweden in Fall '01 so often?
I can understand moving to Denmark in spring to keep the threat alive as diplomatic leverage, but by moving to Sweden right away, Germany angers Russia. Germany's usually going to be able to take Sweden away when he chooses anyway if Russia doesn't open strong to Scandinavia, so why are people so eager to make an enemy right off the bat?
