1) Britain who does have some capability to move forward with Wellington first needs to play Admiralty before its cancelled (as you would like to play HMR) and as cards are key in this game) he should, and did, not play either of the cards he got from Admiralty, to cut down on French preempt
2) Austria - it has a big stack of troops in Vienna without a leader. By burning "Capitulation" I get it out of my hand so it can not be stolen and give Austria the ability to move its troops/defend Vienna
3) Prussia did immediately move on France got beaten back and built troops ready to continue.

Just pushing forward unless someone has a card to fix Nappy just wastes a lot of CPs and permits a French counter attack.

On the Army commitment, I shall note that a turn has passed and neither you or Bill have moved any of your Armies, notwithstanding you are within close reach of the French forces and duchies....

You both could have used my 25,000 men deployed on the border, including the leader....

Not sure why my troops in Russia are so important when you have tons of cannon fodder there...
1114 9/19/2017 10:07:00 PM 1811-1812 Austria Message Note to Roberto. The CPs you spent for pushing a minor when France controls several minors moving after you always be wasted if it is early in the turn when the French minors have cards. The French will just use those minor CPs - which are otherwise not that useful (they do not have big armies) - to cancel your diplomatic moves and use the French cards for offensive/defensive moves. You put a lot more pressure on the French in situations such as we have here if you push forward against them where you have the potential for advantageous battles - thus my suggestion you put Kutusov and others up immediately.
