933 6/22/2018 12:50:00 PM Winter 1919 Allies Message Just wanted to see my cards haha army of the orient was very helpful.
I am very glad I didn't waste the Russians, they would probably be the closing Grace in an cp emptyish east. That and the higher ops cost due to foreign corps.

923 6/22/2018 12:42:00 PM Fall 1918 Central Powers Message Just for the sake of curiosity I have calculated the VPs we had just before losing Sedan

AP
Lemberg -1
Czernowitz -1
Cluj -1
Rape of Belgium -1
Lusitania -1
Zimmerman -1
14 points -1
Blockade -4
Cracow -1

Total: -12


CP
Brussels 1
Sedan 1
Lodz 1
Warsaw 1
Kovno 1
Vilna 1
Belgrade 1
Ploesti 1
Bucharest 1
FR MO missed 1
Reichtag Truce 1
Fall of the Tsar 1
French Mutiny 1
Basra 1
IT MO missed 1

Total 16

I had a small advantage, but even if the western front had hold this turn, it would not have been easy for me to keep Vilna and Kovno in the last turn, even with Lloyd George, and you would also get one more VP for Blockade in the last turn. I had not time to take Baku. Maybe I could have taken Cracow.

Indeed very close!
922 6/22/2018 12:29:00 PM Fall 1918 Allies Message I was incredibly nervous you'd succeed killing Russia and winning out with the extra vps from middle East :) battle of time
921 6/22/2018 12:17:00 PM Fall 1918 Allies Message I think the warzawa move trying to secure those 4/5 vps and getting Brest litovsk in was by far the best move. It was much more probable to assume a little less good ap rolls and stop with loyd George (very good tactic, very scary for ap) or if unlucky lose brussel/sedan and hold at rhein. RTC, Yanks and tanks plus consistent +1 CC's was crucial.
But I would have done exactly as you did. Getting Brest out for the better win terms is crucial. But also a pain as one have to plug all holes and with no Gec/ahc already in place it becomes so hard.

Mm I was very anxious in the midgame, I felt very confident having secured the mountains early but then you made sure to get that trench and it made me waste so much
resources there, not really being able to utilize that early gain.


I have gained so much appreciation for the serbian front.
Br corps and serbian armies are ops expensive but potent threats.
And getting austrian armies out of the Balkans to capitalize on weak Russian presence in carpathians is near impossible it often feels like.


But I learned definitely that pursuing vps in middle East as Turks is possible with skill and patience like you had :) !


But cp is rough the last turns as their strong cc's need Hindenburg
But that's giving up a 5ops for crucial rps.


Also very glad I got proper armies to Italy, cost me a game I had not securing that front.

All fronts felt exhausted, what a game :)
920 6/22/2018 11:41:00 AM Fall 1918 Central Powers Message Of course. I have sent you the final map
919 6/22/2018 11:35:00 AM Fall 1918 Central Powers Message I think ypu played really well with the Russians. I was not able to retake the Carpathian Mountains and was held in Budapest.

I think I made a mistake last turn when I Wasted a 4 OPs card occupying Warsaw, Debrecen, Vilan, because I was planning to play Treaty of Brest-litovsk, so Russians could not attack CP and take German reinforcements to the west, but I tried to do it too late and had to use Treaty for RP, since you had 3 sixes in a row and completely overran me. It was not luck, you were trying hard for several turns so it was a question of time.
This turm my mistake has been not to play Lloyd George in the first impulse. That would have crippled the British, but I decided to keep it until Turn 20 as a surprise tactic, but could not get to turn 20.

I love this game!
918 6/22/2018 11:29:00 AM Fall 1918 Allies Message By the way id really appreciate a final map picture if okey
917 6/22/2018 11:27:00 AM Fall 1918 Allies Message I had an incredible time playing you too, think I learnt more from this game than any game before.

So exhausted playing it hahaha :D !!
Excruciating game pog is, every turn able to change the tide
916 6/22/2018 11:12:00 AM Fall 1918 Allies Message No no this was incredibly equal
I think I got 2 more 6s than I statistically deserved and that changed so much :) ! You shut me down completely in the middle East and Balkans. Such a great game, came down to historical American troops and British thanks :) ! Incredible game, I was so sure I lost when I lost 4 vps to tsar + Italian mo + losing Basra :)
915 6/22/2018 11:07:00 AM Fall 1918 Central Powers Message I was trying to reach turn 20 but I was doomed since last turn. I think it is non-sense to keep agony ;-)

Congratulations! It seems you have done it again ;-)

In the mid-game it seemed the CP had a small advantage but AP western offensive has been ruthless

You are a much better player than me, but at least I hope I have been a tough opponent. I have really enjoyed playing you


914 6/22/2018 11:04:00 AM Fall 1918 Allies Message And if you can please send one more picture, think this last or second last map update needed :)
913 6/22/2018 11:02:00 AM Fall 1918 Allies Message Okey, due to forest you can choose to retreat 1 or 2 steps? Forgot how it works.

The Americans has played such an important role, and at first I was iffy to cramming out events as allies but having the American cards and royal tank corps frequently has opened up the westfront.

And Russians making a comeback tough I still regret going south into entrenched Budapest instead of North into warzawa with the brusilov offensive.
Again glad the anchor that is the Americans and British Tanks.
