Re: Austria vs Bots

I'm spectating this one ... I'll just say, you're doing as well as you can. Russia is hard. It's time to ready up orders in my Turkey game. Here goes: https://webdiplomacy.net/map.php?gameID=439208&turn=37&mapType=large Pretty good overall. Tunis is captured. England did not move to EC, although, n...

Re: Austria vs Bots

Thanks, I saw the self-bounce in F02 and thought I might be able to take advantage. I'll write up a recap sometime this weekend. Okay, here's the Russian recap up to and through the current turn (F03). S01: I played a northern opening the last time I played Russia, so just for variety we go south t...

Re: Austria vs Bots

Here goes: https://webdiplomacy.net/map.php?gameID=439208&turn=36&mapType=large The moves all worked. England retreated to MAO. Germany got a little agitated and moved to Burgundy, as well as pulling Tyrolia back to Munich. That will make things more interesting in France, for sure. My thoughts for...

Re: Austria vs Bots

Congrats on another solo! I checked out your Russia game just started (link above). Nice move in Vienna in Spr '03: anticipating the Austrian bounce, giving Galicia a hostile support, and following Russia into Galicia. Very clever. A couple of those strong tactics can swing a game sometimes. You bo...

Re: Austria vs Bots

Finished my Italy game. Took Par/War/Mos in 1910, no worries. In review, this was a fairly stress-free Italian solo. I'm having a hard time coming up with anything super insightful to say about the game that I haven't already said... France didn't come my way at all and Turkey going after Russia at ...

Re: Austria vs Bots

F1909: I try for Spa and Ukr and get both as well. That's three more, puts me at 17. At worst, I should be able to force Moscow in 1910. Yes, indeed, the map is looking very sea-green. Now that you've got Spain locked down, you could also try MAR-->BUR, PIE-->MAR and see what opportunities that cre...

Re: Austria vs Bots

Wow, I can see how you've been able to complete 300+ games. Once you start rolling, you don't mess around! It looks like this one can be put on the books as an Italian solo ... Yeah, it definitely was going well - not a lot of hard choices. I played a few more turns last night after I posted that u...

Re: Austria vs Bots

F1904: Again, pretty straightforward. Smy is completely safe, so EAS can do something else if it needs to. I decide it might be a good idea to go to ION, just in case France decides to move to WES to try for Tunis. I use AEG to tap Con and use Smy to support Arm-Ank. After I submitted the orders, I...

Re: Austria vs Bots

Also, I have played several turns in my game since my last post... recap thoughts: F1902: Seriously consider stabbing Austria already via Tri and Gre. Decide against it, will give more time to see where the alliance goes even though Austria's going to have the power. Will try for Smy, but won't be u...

Re: Austria vs Bots

No worries. A lot of people on the boards have said that Germany is easy vs. the bots, but Germany is 5th on my list. I must not be getting something. I went back and looked at your Germany game, to see if I could find anything I might have done differently. I didn't see anything of any importance....

Re: Austria vs Bots

Too bad about the Germany game. I think you correctly called the Turkish solo back in 1903 or so ... No worries. A lot of people on the boards have said that Germany is easy vs. the bots, but Germany is 5th on my list. I must not be getting something. It will be fun to see how you handle Italy. We'...

Re: Austria vs Bots

...so for this turn, right now I just have Den S Kie S Den, Ruh S Mun, StP S Mos. The latter is probably futile as England is probably going to tap it again (unless he uses Nwy to defend Swe). I'm also wondering if I should play really aggressive and use Mun to tap Tyo in an effort to help Italy so...

Re: Austria vs Bots

Yeah, I think it's going to be a Turkish solo, too. In the spring of 09, I was really torn between going back towards the homeland, moving towards Warsaw, or trying to do what I could to stop Turkey. I ended up going back to the west. I thought maybe I'd try to get Holland back, but England and I b...

Re: Austria vs Bots

The last Autumn moves and builds/removals seem to make England your #1 enemy now. Russia pulled Finland and has to deal with Turkey. England moved to Baltic (who else can he possibly attack from there??) and built a new army London, seemingly to move to Holland. Strategically, attacking England mak...
