Re: Austria vs Bots

I went ahead and built the army in CON. I don't think there was much of a case for building a fleet. So here we are, entering Spr '20: https://webdiplomacy.net/map.php?gameID=439208&turn=37&mapType=large The objectives: 1) Destroy the N. Africa fleet / close in on MAO 2) Advance the armies in France...

Re: Austria vs Bots

Yeah, E-F are looking pretty strong. If this were a human game, and I were playing Russia, I would be looking for a stalemate line Turkey and I could defend. It's harder to take that approach in a bot game, since you know bot-Turkey won't be thinking that way. In any event, I don't see how Turkey h...

Re: Austria vs Bots

I'm spectating this one ... I'll just say, you're doing as well as you can. Russia is hard. It's time to ready up orders in my Turkey game. Here goes: https://webdiplomacy.net/map.php?gameID=439208&turn=37&mapType=large Pretty good overall. Tunis is captured. England did not move to EC, although, no...

Re: Austria vs Bots

Great comments, thanks both. I largely agree with everything you both said. I had one question for each of you and would like to get your further thoughts before I finalize orders. This is mainly for my own learning, and for anyone else who might be reading this thread and wondering. and, also, I th...

Re: Austria vs Bots

Nothing wrong with playing conservative in your game. Surprised (yet not) that army London is still in London. Curious to see what unit Germany removes... I built the army CON. Germany removed its fleet in Sweden -- not super helpful, unless that encourages England to take Sweden. I know, not likel...

Re: Austria vs Bots

[/quote] Finished my Italy game. Took Par/War/Mos in 1910, no worries. In review, this was a fairly stress-free Italian solo. I'm having a hard time coming up with anything super insightful to say about the game that I haven't already said... France didn't come my way at all and Turkey going after R...

Re: Austria vs Bots

F1909: I try for Spa and Ukr and get both as well. That's three more, puts me at 17. At worst, I should be able to force Moscow in 1910. Yes, indeed, the map is looking very sea-green. Now that you've got Spain locked down, you could also try MAR-->BUR, PIE-->MAR and see what opportunities that cre...

Re: Austria vs Bots

F1904: Again, pretty straightforward. Smy is completely safe, so EAS can do something else if it needs to. I decide it might be a good idea to go to ION, just in case France decides to move to WES to try for Tunis. I use AEG to tap Con and use Smy to support Arm-Ank. After I submitted the orders, I...

Re: Austria vs Bots

No worries. A lot of people on the boards have said that Germany is easy vs. the bots, but Germany is 5th on my list. I must not be getting something. I went back and looked at your Germany game, to see if I could find anything I might have done differently. I didn't see anything of any importance....

Re: Austria vs Bots

...so for this turn, right now I just have Den S Kie S Den, Ruh S Mun, StP S Mos. The latter is probably futile as England is probably going to tap it again (unless he uses Nwy to defend Swe). I'm also wondering if I should play really aggressive and use Mun to tap Tyo in an effort to help Italy so...

Re: Austria vs Bots

https://webdiplomacy.net/map.php?gameID=439208&turn=32&mapType=large Excellent! As anticipated, Tyrolia held, and my armies advanced. England went after GoL with a force of 2, and my Marseilles fleet got to GoL with its 2 supports. (And yes, it would have bounced with only 1 support.) In other good...

Re: Austria vs Bots

I think it's safe to assume Germany won't move to Piedmont, and England won't move to Marseilles from Spain. I'm tempted now to just pull the Marseilles fleet back to GoL, with 2 supports, to clear the path for the armies while also securing GoL. Add VEN-->PIE, APU-->VEN, and start the CON army on ...

Re: Austria vs Bots

,,,and Turkey got Rome and *beautifully* stabbed the Russian (when I was commenting on the Turkish position in my last post, I was thinking that if I was Turkey, I'd be thinking about stabbing the Russian). So England +1, Germany -1, Italy -1, Russia -3, Turkey +4 (!). Now I have to figure out whic...

Sorry for the slow play, I've been busy irl. I built the army in CON and, miraculously, Germany removed its army in Piedmont. https://webdiplomacy.net/map.php?gameID=439208&turn=31&mapType=large 8-) We'll have to rethink Spring moves ... everything just got a bit easier.

Excellent! You've made it.. into the line? Now for the fun part! Breaking through the wall! I'll take a closer look when I wake up. Its been a long day, but just from a glance, you've got yourself a chance to get through now, seemingly odd that Germany didn't cover the open center, rather unfortuna...

Re: Austria vs Bots

If so, then perhaps I don't need to let England into GoL. I'm pretty sure England will order WES support-hold TUN. Thus, GoL-->MAR, TYS-->GoL, ION-->TYS, and ADR-->ION would seem to cover the bases. I would expect to bounce England at GoL, which is just fine (if I don't bounce Germany at MAR). If m...

Re: Austria vs Bots

I played a few turns in my game since this was written - recap and thoughts: Spring 05: I figured that Russia would use his forces to recapture St.P, so I thought that it might make sense to take the opportunity to push into GoB. I should probably have been a little more aggressive and moved from S...
