24 Mar 17 UTC This game progress remarkably like our first game. I got a western power and DJ got Austria, the Turkish player turtled up.

DJ, I think you could have formed a stalemate line to prevent me from winning if you hadn't attacked Italy - Italy was the only player who was going to stop me from getting the needed southern French centers.
24 Mar 17 UTC Thanks for playing everybody I hope you had a good time and learned something
24 Mar 17 UTC Joey, as Russia its usually very bad to attack Germany early on. Germany won't attack Russia the first two years b/c Germany has to block France and England. Meanwhile, Germany can deny you sweden and there's really no center you can easily get from attacking Germany. Then when your units are out of position, you'll get attacked by Austria or Turkey.
If you want to play a northern game as Russia, you want to try to get control of Scandanavia first - it's possible to play England and Germany off of each other and get Norway and Sweden. Then, once you have those, you can decide to attack Germany or England.
25 Mar 17 UTC When I first made the moves against Italy, they were on their way to capturing 9 SC. They were tied with Germany at that point and they left their capital complete open where as germany would have been able to defend well against any attack I pushed north with. Turkey had set up stalemate lines in the baltics and west was the only path I saw to momentum or a solo win. Then ya the next turn i started moving everything north but at that time you got a 3 build turn and there wasn't a whole lot i would have been able to do. Should have probably stopped the campaign 100% in Italy and courage them to hold their forces in France at S of 1906...
25 Mar 17 UTC It's tough in a gunboat game where you can't just explain that you're calling off an attack and instead setting up abstalemate line
25 Mar 17 UTC Ya didn't expect england to give up GB in 1905 either when first making the moves. Was hoping it would have taken you longer to get the north. Turkey was doing a good job moving their fleet into the Mediterranean and a 3 man draw would have been possible.
25 Mar 17 UTC Yeah Jordan really impressed me, this was the first game he played in a long time and he played really well for how much experience he had. I had a long conversation with him about the game. I wish he could play with us more.
26 Mar 17 UTC I would like to point out Rome has nothing to do with a stale mate line and was not calling off an attack boo boo.
