716 1/14/2017 8:53:00 AM Summer 1917 Central Powers Message Hi Tim,

Sorry for the delay in responding, I was pretty sick the last few days so more or less fell off the radar. It was a really good game and I was nervous for a large part of it. You played really well, and capitalized on a number of my mistakes marvelously. In particular, taking Trent really hurt me.

With regards to your points, I think getting to TW faster is always a good thing, but I think the real downside was not having more British/French Corps to reinforce the Italians. Putting 2 corps in Trent and two corps in Udine would've been the extra meat you needed to stop the Austrians.

I concur with the Western Front-- it was way too passive and meant my Germans never worried about RPs. Doing an attack or two every turn with the Brits/French counts a lot when my Germans are supporting the Austrians.

There was a period of time in the NE I thought you might break me, with YUD/Sinai/Beersheba all bearing down, but if I recall correctly, you laid off. I think you should've prioritized just overwhelming my defenses then. I also like MEF in MEF4 because it poses an immediate threat. MEF2/3 takes 2 cards to be in a threatening position, which gave me a lot of breathing room.

Luck was certainly not with you on the Italian front. You did the right thing by rushing armies down to Italy ASAP. Not getting in RPs during that onslaught didn't help either.

One thing I think you should consider for next time is switching your Russian attack to the Germans after a certain period of time. Once I stabilized Austria, I was able to take a bunch of Russian VPs in the North with 1-2 armies. Switching your focus to the North and the Germans will prevent me from doing this.

I think you were 85% of the way there, I had to luck out against some of your big counterattacks. Just working on putting more pressure on the Western Front and playing RPs more consistently. But it was a close game that Italy made the difference for. I really enjoyed it! If you want a rematch, I'm down for one whenever!

714 1/9/2017 7:46:00 PM Summer 1917 Allies Message Hi,

Been ruminating on this for a while and I am going to offer you my sword at this point. My hand will not allow me the ops necessary to do the heavy lifting required to stave off auto-win. I have done some analysis of my play and would appreciate some feedback as you are clearly the better player.

I think I had a very strong start with my onslaught vs the Austrians. Things were precarious for you for a while but you eventually turned the tide with some steady play and a vision for the longer game. I have not played a lot of TW and it really showed here. Here are what I believe were my most glaring mistakes:

-Way too long to get to TW. Italy was a mess by the time I got there
-Way too passive in the West. I figured with Austria so weak I could handle you in the East and NE. A few French attacks or taking a VP space back should have been a priority.
-Many mistakes to be sure.

what hurt me luck wise: ( and I would have lost most likely but these did not help)
-I think thegame really turned when I failed on both my attacks with a even or better chance to trap a german army OOS. I lost a French army to boot, bad.
-Italian dice were beyond horrific. Could have bought me the time required to secure it.
-Italian and BR MO's and few AH MO's. Makes a difference ultimately but a small reason for my loss.

I really enjoyed playing against you and hopefully we can hook up for something else sometime.
