Re: Newbie looking for advice on first victory (:

I think that you got it eventually! Control of the North Sea is critical. Dislodging the English fleet in a Spring phase was smart because you could have popped the fleet without losing a supply center if it tried to retreat to Belgium or something.

Re: Newbie looking for advice on first victory (:

https://webdiplomacy.net/board.php?gameID=632204 Well done! At the risk of stating the obvious, play some games against human players. As for this game, pretty much everything went your way and you were able to play well and take advantage of the minimal opposition that you faced. It took you a real...
