30 Jun 16 UTC Autumn, 1904: Can someone explain to me what it means to "bounce" I keep hearing this and no one will explain it to me.
03 Jul 16 UTC Autumn, 1905: When to units go to the same area (or equal forces go to the same area) neither will take the area and it is therefore usually referred to as having a stand-off or bouncing your opponents unit. (at least from what I understand)
03 Jul 16 UTC Autumn, 1905: you can also bounce your own units, its useful to protect your home S.C.s and prevent it from being taken by the enemy still leaving it open and allowing you to build troops there
04 Jul 16 UTC Autumn, 1905: Just like you bounce my Norway to save st pete
13 Jul 16 UTC Spring, 1908: If Austria had only supported himself into Sevastopol with Moscow would my support cut have been successful?
13 Jul 16 UTC Spring, 1908: Yes, 2 vs 1, I can still going in from Ukraine.
13 Jul 16 UTC Spring, 1908: So, it should be "No", but I can still go to Sev from Ukraine since your Sev is blanked.
13 Jul 16 UTC Spring, 1908: if rum didn't do anything, Ukraine still can come to Sev as Sev only have 1 sc, without support, no matter where Sev go, Sev would be defeated by 1:2
13 Jul 16 UTC Spring, 1908: In more formal saying..
a support b to c,
a = supporter
b = invader
it means that c is hit by 2 sc, the difference between a and b is... at last, b come in and a stay.

if you only use 1 sc to stop 2 sc, it's an unfair game. isn't it?
13 Jul 16 UTC Spring, 1908: What happens if you guys both have 18 supply centers in fall 1909?
13 Jul 16 UTC Spring, 1908: We have to fight until one get 19 or above.
13 Jul 16 UTC Spring, 1908: only have 34 sc, if anybody get 18, game ended
13 Jul 16 UTC Spring, 1908: If Moscow had somehow hypothetically been dislodged would its support be cut?
14 Jul 16 UTC Autumn, 1908: 2on1, invaded
1on1, hold
14 Jul 16 UTC Autumn, 1908: I'm surprised Austria didn't try to invade Germany since he had so Amy units strategically positioned next to it or send Ionian Sea west to prepare to defend Italy
14 Jul 16 UTC Autumn, 1908: Why is Munich totally unprotected?
14 Jul 16 UTC Autumn, 1908: WHICH YEAR?
In my memory, Italy fail to expand and she gave up, so Austria go and finish Italy first.
before the death of Italy, Austria is still lack of SC so she couldn't hit Munich at once (or she had some compromise with Ger)
14 Jul 16 UTC Autumn, 1908: I mean just now. I thought he would move Bohemia to Munich Galicia to Silesia and Warsaw to Prussia
14 Jul 16 UTC Autumn, 1908: I thought you were going to convoy something into Tuscany and move a fleet into Tyreehenian sea to get the Italian supply centers
14 Jul 16 UTC Autumn, 1908: ic, I don't know what the end is
but I've promised with Austria we all stay alive at the end and draw to share win
this map totally have 34sc
now I've got 17, I'm waiting for the death of Turkey
As it's a draw-size game, we need to kill all other parties

15 Jul 16 UTC Spring, 1909: All you have to do is move Berlin to Munich and you get all 140 points right away
15 Jul 16 UTC Spring, 1909: I am a honorable player and do not stab, that's why i can always win.
15 Jul 16 UTC Autumn, 1909: Haha do not stab.. I beg to differ
16 Jul 16 UTC Autumn, 1909: We will see.
16 Jul 16 UTC Autumn, 1909: I'm not sure what there is to see, you will win but that's not the point I made
