Dear members, a large update was done that broke functionality, including the forum. We are aware. We will be adding 2 days to all games so you do not need to worry about your games until 48 hours after now (10:30am Eastern US Time). Our apologies for the disruption!

The last process time was over 12 minutes ago (at 02:15 PM UTC); the server is not processing games until the cause is found and games are given extra time.

Game won by Chaqa (3585 D Mod (B))
09 May 20 UTC Unfortunate result, but gg and congrats to Chaqa. Boy is crushing it this series lol.
09 May 20 UTC GG well played Chaqa
09 May 20 UTC GG. But surely Chaqa deserves a little more fingerprinting between the survivers?
09 May 20 UTC Fingerpointing...
09 May 20 UTC lol thanks Valis for the win
09 May 20 UTC I’m less salty given the 5wd when I was expecting elimination

I presume valis threw to Chaqa because he’d get whittled if he didn’t fluff him up quick (and then could slot into ber or tun for stalemate line purposes)
I presume meme was either pissed at valis for the attack or just had a mistaken set of orders in fall 1909
And I lost like every coin flip lol
W/e, shit happens sometimes
09 May 20 UTC France didn’t have the fleets to stop me even if Valis didn’t throw, I think.

And not securing Berlin property was tough
09 May 20 UTC France had the fleets to stop you, but PROBABLY needed to take Belgium fall 1909 (which I’d offered up)

Long term, but supports mar, gas supports spa, por or a northern fleet supports MAO

Was surprised in fall 1909 you didn’t try for pie supports bur-mar under the “maybe France bounces himself there” theory but it worked out in the end at least

Also for spring 1910 I literally RNG’d defending Berlin or Munich lol, just guessed wrong
09 May 20 UTC I don't feel like I threw. I became part of the stalemate line then entered orders to stop the solo. Maybe I misremember.

Different than the solo being stoppable based on position and type of units available to non Austria powers
09 May 20 UTC I thought you'd be convoying back London @mhsmith and that I could take the center there :D My thinking was, London goes to Belgium then to Burgundy (seals up Mun/Ber front), Spain goes to Gas, MAO goes to Spa, take London, build F Bre and use Lon/Bre to fill MAO.

Both had decent ideas to create the stalemate, unfortunately we didn't both have the same idea. Plus we would've had to win the 50/50 on Ber/Mun either way so Chaqa had the solo anyway.

Didn't seem like Valis threw to me either.
09 May 20 UTC Gratz Chaqa!
09 May 20 UTC Hot take: This will be the only solo of the series
09 May 20 UTC Ehhhhhhhhhhh
09 May 20 UTC Meme, why did you move away from Burgundy? I was thinking you were thinking Italy was trying to throw the solo to Austria, but was there a different tactical cause at work?
09 May 20 UTC That was just me being an idiot I think. A lot of the time I'm entering orders on these I'm like 'oh shit this one is 5 minutes from progressing gotta go fast'.

I *think* I did it to keep Italy out of Spain but I have no idea why I would need to keep Italy out of Spain.
09 May 20 UTC Yeah...

I was thinking you were trying to throw to Austria as payback against Italy
I kinda figured that in fall you’d either mutual bounce mar, and move MAO to wmed or NAF, or you’d move Spain to mar supported by bur and wmed to spa, and back fill Mao, and I was like “oh shiiiiiit” when I saw the moves lol

But if I’d flipped the right coin in spring 1910 we still draw, ditto it I’d picked Pur-Liv supported by STP in fall 1909. Oh well.
