17 Jan 17 UTC Nice one!
17 Jan 17 UTC I guess the lesson here is don't overextend over Russia and don't turn your back on France. I launched back into the Channel hoping you'd take the support into Belgium.
17 Jan 17 UTC That didn't seem like a good idea; I couldn't hold Belgium.
17 Jan 17 UTC Good game!

Italy - if you're attacking Austria in 1901, try to do it in a way that stops him from being able to throw to the juggernaught. The Tyl/Ven into Support Ven-Tri opening is terrible because it means you can only ever take Trieste unless R/T decide to attack one another or let you have more, and they rarely have reason to do so. It nearly worked out for you here because Russia got greedy and took Serbia, but in most games you won't have that luck.

Russia - If you've been gifted Austria by an Italian attack, in general the best move is to juggernaught (R/T alliance) unless Italy is actually offering you support into centers. Juggernaught requires letting Turkey have some centers too - if you had left Serbia for Turkey this game, the two of you would have steamrolled the board.

France - Very well played. Nicely done on holding off the draw vote - I was surprised to see 5 votes going up ridiculously early and the fact that you were trying to play on made me cheer for you. Congraulations on a well earned solo!
17 Jan 17 UTC By the start of 1903, I thought we were looking at a Jugg. In deliberating to fend off France or maintain a shadow over Russia, I chose the latter. I had a flawed 1902 anyway.
17 Jan 17 UTC I was very surprised to see everyone voting for a draw so early, but not taking it out on me that I refused..
17 Jan 17 UTC Good game all
