05 Nov 14 UTC God I'm awful at France.

Good game all
05 Nov 14 UTC gg everyone, I enjoyed getting demolished
05 Nov 14 UTC for you more experienced players in here, is there anything that I could've done to have a chance at that solo? I'm a little amazed at how slow it took me (or how quick F/G) got to the line to clog me up
05 Nov 14 UTC I'm no help for you Kallen. I almost always run into the same issue as Austria. I have a lot of very frustrating 16-17 center Austrian draws.
05 Nov 14 UTC With Germany being strong (as I was in this one running second to you) it is almost impossible for you to get Munich or Berlin which means you have to find a way to get Marseilles or part of Iberia in addition to Tunis.
05 Nov 14 UTC But that is easier said than done.
05 Nov 14 UTC Good game. As Austria, you often have the problem of crossing the stalemate line. Austria is strong with armies (central location, good mobility) but poor with fleets (only Trieste to build in, which is then blocked by the Italian Peninsula). Since breaking into and holding Munich or any German center is hard to do without support from fleets in the Baltic, I'd suggest attacking France and the Iberian Peninsula with fleets sooner. I'd prioritize getting into the MAO over other SC's in Russia or even Turkey (as long as he is weak enough to contain and kill off later). After that, even one fleet that can target England will wreak enough havoc to get to 18.
05 Nov 14 UTC gotcha. thanks guys
05 Nov 14 UTC gg game. For what its worth, nice stab Kallen, I was way too trusting of you, I thought we were friends (sob) and didn't do anything at all to cover myself before the inevitable stab happened. I sort of expected you to be going for Germany in 1904, which would've allowed me to build and strengthen up

Anyway live and learn
