20 May 19 UTC Spring, 1901: Hello, stranger!
20 May 19 UTC Autumn, 1901: Once more! Good luck.
20 May 19 UTC Autumn, 1904: Tough turn here
20 May 19 UTC Autumn, 1904: Do you mind taking a 5 min pause after this turn
20 May 19 UTC Autumn, 1904: Okay im good
20 May 19 UTC Autumn, 1904: More time to think about the critical battle for Tunis.
20 May 19 UTC Spring, 1905: Haha no time to pee
20 May 19 UTC Autumn, 1905: Damn you
20 May 19 UTC Autumn, 1905: You're good
20 May 19 UTC Spring, 1906: I honestly thought I played well, you just played better haha
20 May 19 UTC Good game man. I need some lessons
20 May 19 UTC I've pretty much lost faith in the Northern French opening. The Tyr-Pie move starting in Spring 02 is just so limiting.
20 May 19 UTC GG
20 May 19 UTC What do you suggest instead then? Because if I open to piedmont and austria opens to Venice, i'm in a bad spot
20 May 19 UTC And i'll be sure to use that move in the future.
20 May 19 UTC I recommend getting assigned Austria!
20 May 19 UTC CaptainMeme likes your French opening best, so there must be a better follow-up that I don't know. Maybe a build of F Mar in 1901?
20 May 19 UTC Not without drawbacks. If it moves to Piedmont and I don't bounce it, then it's out of position. If you don't move to Piedmont and I take it, then you have a nasty guess on whether to cover Mar in Autumn 02.
20 May 19 UTC Seems like France has to win 1 guess just to equalize.
20 May 19 UTC Openings to Piedmont and Venice aren't all bad for France. Yes, you start down a build, but you can slide the army into Tyrolia in Autumn 01 and it becomes a serious thorn.
20 May 19 UTC fair enough
20 May 19 UTC ill study some games
