393 2/19/2017 2:46:00 PM Spring 1916 Central Powers Message Happy to stick with the same sides if you are - let's see if I can make a better fist of it this time.

I'll set up the game in a bit
392 2/19/2017 10:08:00 AM Spring 1916 Allies Message Absolutely, would enjoy another. Actually tactically you were fine (most of the time), once you get into that German losses situation it is over barring the most exceptional circumstances.

You choose sides, I'll go for a 1 AP bid whichever way you choose.
391 2/19/2017 10:05:00 AM Spring 1916 Central Powers Message John,

Don't think there is any point dragging this out any further. My advance to Frankfurt was stupid and pretty much summed up this game for me. Good job this is a double elimination tournament!

Congrats on the win and if you fancy a friendly re-match to fill the time until the next round, I am up for that (I promise you I am a lot better than the pathetic figure I have cut in this game)
