02 Jan 19 UTC Autumn, 1901: (Which is not now)
02 Jan 19 UTC Autumn, 1901: i recommend moving hard towards bulgaria and smyrna with your builds in 1902 :P
02 Jan 19 UTC Autumn, 1901: If you take Lvp in '02 we can discuss
02 Jan 19 UTC Autumn, 1901: I actually need to run back to work for a bit, I'll check in later in the day
02 Jan 19 UTC Autumn, 1901: No prob. I must go sleeping. See you later !
02 Jan 19 UTC Autumn, 1901: later :)
03 Jan 19 UTC Autumn, 1902: not sure if this is the right call or not but maybe it'll be FUN!
03 Jan 19 UTC Autumn, 1902: that has to be super non-conventional to convoy ahead of time, and it's probably better to have more bodies in Germany, but I figured I'd do something weird and see if/how it'd screw me over
03 Jan 19 UTC Autumn, 1902: I can't play tonight. I go to the cinema with my wife...
This convoy changes the game, yes.
03 Jan 19 UTC Autumn, 1902: I played a couple of games with the North Sea convoy. It will be funny. But all the cards are in your hand. I become a spectator ;-)
03 Jan 19 UTC Autumn, 1902: yeah probably in your favor but it's definitely something weird and interesting at least
i'm presuming standard fare is to go NTH-NOR, Hol-kie, Mar-Spa, and then put 2 bodies against Munich anticipating a bounce.
Anyway have a good night, and hopefully this was a weird and smart decision instead ofa weird and dumb one :P
03 Jan 19 UTC Autumn, 1902: i guess it would have been better in the spring to have gone bur-mun for blocking berlin, but that also kind of puts me in a bad spot if it bounces. I guess that's why the Par-Gas is a move ppl do sometimes here?
04 Jan 19 UTC Autumn, 1903: yeah this position looks increasingly lost. oh well
04 Jan 19 UTC Autumn, 1903: As long as a game is not finished, it is nor won or lost...
04 Jan 19 UTC Autumn, 1903: As I told you, with this convoy, Austria is a spectator. For each move you make you decide which move I have to do or which flip coins I have to throw. So all the cards are in your hands. Up to you to make me throw the coin. Else you have lost.
04 Jan 19 UTC Spring, 1904: yeah i'm trying to think of where I can force tough decisions on you. Definitely an odd position; it's pretty easy to see the path to 18 for you, and then it becomes how do I stop you from getting there.
04 Jan 19 UTC Autumn, 1904: i guess i probably lost a minor coin flip in winter 1902 when i built a mar and you built a tri, since I think I do much better overall if we differ army vs fleet there.
04 Jan 19 UTC Autumn, 1904: I feel like this will be a good one to throw into my internal record books for later as an interesting reference point however it ends up
04 Jan 19 UTC Autumn, 1904: It seems that you got 2 nice flip coins here...
04 Jan 19 UTC Spring, 1905: oh thank goodness, REALLY needed that. Definitely getting more interesting now...
04 Jan 19 UTC Autumn, 1905: It becomes less and less interesting... for the poor Austrian player.
04 Jan 19 UTC Autumn, 1905: yeah i think this might actually be a won position unless i screw it up (now watch me screw it up :P )
04 Jan 19 UTC Autumn, 1905: though you did win a bit of a coin flip around what I did with my F ENG - if I toss that into NTH, then I can easily force STP in the short term i think
04 Jan 19 UTC Spring, 1906: Well. It's my turn to throw some flip coins ;-)
04 Jan 19 UTC Spring, 1906: lol true
if I held F Swe in place and moved ENG-MAO last turn, this game is over. oh well...
04 Jan 19 UTC Spring, 1906: *and moved ENG-NTH lol
04 Jan 19 UTC Autumn, 1906: damn that coin flip around tunis worked well for you, i'm back in trouble now :(
04 Jan 19 UTC Autumn, 1906: I have to go back home... See you in a few hours.
04 Jan 19 UTC Autumn, 1906: I think it is an important move by the way.
04 Jan 19 UTC Autumn, 1906: yeah agreed. there's a chance you can hit 18 this turn, and a chance I can get completely out of position for any chance to reach 18 myself. having the guts to move ENG-NTH earlier instead of being more conservative and potentially leaving MAO weakness would have paid off big, oh well
04 Jan 19 UTC Autumn, 1906: and here i'd thought it was a won position not that long ago
lolsmith :P
04 Jan 19 UTC Autumn, 1906: The coin has been flipped.
Let's bid it will fall on the edge :-(
04 Jan 19 UTC Autumn, 1906: Hey... You are trying to get both the Belt and the Crown!
04 Jan 19 UTC Autumn, 1906: Glgl
04 Jan 19 UTC Autumn, 1906: Damn, not good :(
04 Jan 19 UTC Autumn, 1906: I think you’ll win it
04 Jan 19 UTC Autumn, 1906: I can SO CLOSE to not tapping con too :(
04 Jan 19 UTC Autumn, 1906: Well... I think it is over. Let me look at this in details...
04 Jan 19 UTC Autumn, 1906: You almost certainly have iT, I’ll fight but I’ll lose
04 Jan 19 UTC Autumn, 1906: closest ive come to you so far in our games, but alas no cigar
04 Jan 19 UTC Autumn, 1906: on the upside, if i pull out the crown one, i'll have at least one game without you coming back to take the title (probably would be like xorxes instead tho :P)
04 Jan 19 UTC Spring, 1907: Take care... Marcos is a very good player. xorxes is very busy. He is close to win both tournaments. So I doubt he takes care of the Crown or the Belt. And I can revendicate the Crown (yet)... Good luck !
04 Jan 19 UTC Spring, 1907: ty
04 Jan 19 UTC Spring, 1907: I can *not* revendicate it... So you can keep it some time. And I focus on the Belt by the way.
04 Jan 19 UTC gg
04 Jan 19 UTC at least i came pretty close
lets play horseshoes next time :P
04 Jan 19 UTC yep gg
at least i came pretty close, and if it lasted another year i was gonna win
too bad close wasn't enough tho :(
04 Jan 19 UTC I was *MAYBE* gonna win
04 Jan 19 UTC Extremely closed... I felt the blade on my throath...
See you a next time with high pleasure ! It was fun (as you promised) ;-)
04 Jan 19 UTC yeah it was fun
some day i'll actually defeat you
some day...
*shakes fist*
