13 May 18 UTC Spring, 1901: Moderator: (ghug): Welcome to the 2018 Gunboat Tournament!

You've been placed into seven games. If you're not in seven games, you haven't received each power exactly once, or you feel you've been put in the tournament in error, please contact me as soon as possible.

Games have been paused to ensure that nobody misses a phase due to the abnormal nature of the game starts. If you have not voted unpause by Wednesday, May 15th, I will contact you and begin docking from your seven days of allocated pause time in one day increments. If you need a pause, please let me know.

Good luck!
18 Jul 18 UTC Didn't notice that this game had drawn. Congratulations to those of you that were part of the draw.
18 Jul 18 UTC I know I opted to start off with an anti-Austrian opening just to see how it played out. Spring 1904 was my undoing, and when Austria decided to make a run in to my centres, I couldn't really turn them down, since they still had a chance.
18 Jul 18 UTC Yeah I was struggling with Turkey. When they landed two armies on your peninsula, I had to move on you just to try and keep them from getting all your SC's. Didn't work out how I planned unfortunately.
18 Jul 18 UTC Thanks for the game! Was looking to establish a stalemate line and realized that I had to pull back quite a bit in Austria to do so. So I'm very please with the end result. Was initially planning an Eng-Fra alliance, but Eng started agressively with fleet in EC and army to convoy in Wal. Doom was certain before Ger attacked Eng, thus saving me.
