02 Aug 18 UTC Autumn, 1901: Dang. Was able to predict your Austrian opening just fine, but this isn't your normal France opening. Hmmm. This could be an issue.
02 Aug 18 UTC Autumn, 1901: :)
figured i'd mix things up, worth a shot to throw a bit of chaos into the mix lol
02 Aug 18 UTC Autumn, 1901: Opinion: should I build an army or a fleet? :)
02 Aug 18 UTC Autumn, 1901: Army tbh. I think a lot of Austrian players overbuild fleets. A fleet in Tri cuts down on your short term options a lot imo.
02 Aug 18 UTC Autumn, 1901: Yeah but army makes me predictable. Fleet you have to guess. Am I holding it, with the army going to Tyrolia? Or moving to Adr and pushing Vienna down to Trieste. Army means I can't take Venice this year.
03 Aug 18 UTC Spring, 1902: I think I realize now that fleet was a bad choice
03 Aug 18 UTC Spring, 1904: thsi is definitely a fun and weird game :P
03 Aug 18 UTC Spring, 1905: definitely shouldn't have risked letting you in ruhr a few turns ago, sometimes doing weird stuff is fun but sometimes it's a bad idea lol
03 Aug 18 UTC Spring, 1905: Yeah, its a really nice bottleneck to have for me lol
04 Aug 18 UTC Autumn, 1905: welp
04 Aug 18 UTC gg
04 Aug 18 UTC one better guess and i'm back in it but alas was not meant to be
04 Aug 18 UTC gg. It would've been really tough for you to hold Berlin/Munich from me anyway. Even if StP and Tunis were lost. You very nearly came back from a bad start though.
04 Aug 18 UTC i did well s01 but then kind shitty next few turns
going to pie is way outside my comfort zone for what I should be playing
but it was good learning experience :)

gl rest of way :)
04 Aug 18 UTC Honestly I think the only real mistake you made there was that first fleet build in Brest. If that was an army in Paris, the game changes radically.
04 Aug 18 UTC tbh I think my biggest mistake was letting you in ruhr s03, if I don't do that, then I plug up STP at essentially zero cost and it's much harder for you to overbuild me
could be wrong though, i probably need to play more games where one side or the other is in pie since I'm justnot familiar at all with optimal build order there
04 Aug 18 UTC Well yeah, if you have bottlenecked StP, that would've changed the game dramatically. But bouncing me in Ruhr is what I actually hoped you would do, as it just endlessly bottlenecks you.
04 Aug 18 UTC (because no way would someone risk moving to Ruhr without backfilling Burgundy in that situation)
