848 6/22/2019 4:29:00 AM Summer 1918 Allies Message Thanks for the game anyway and apologies about the time!
847 6/22/2019 4:28:00 AM Summer 1918 Allies Message I think that especially in the historical scenario you have to pressure Russia more even if it means other fronts suffer. You spent a fair amount of time / ops doing stuff in Italy and the NE which netted you no VP (although it did stop me from getting any also).
846 6/22/2019 2:26:00 AM Summer 1918 Central Powers Message Your excessive use of time does not really change the fact that you won this game.
The allies win.

I am still trying to figue out, what went wrong. At around turn 10 I was pretty confident, that I would win and then things went wrong.
Can you help me undertand that?
I think there was more to it than bad luck like:
1. Almost no French Mutiny
2. Repeated faliure to destroy the british NE army
845 6/20/2019 8:46:00 PM Summer 1918 Allies Message Hi Ron, I agree with your analysis mostly, although maybe you could do a bit better in Russia than you think if you focus on it it the last two turns.

In any case it does look like a AP win. However, as you pointed out, I took the majority of the time in the game, so by that standard I should lose.

I will let you decide Ron, if you are OK to concede I will take the win, but if you wish to claim victory due to time taken, I will accept that too.

Good game though, do you want to finish it out the last 2 turns anyway and see what would happen or just abandon it here?

==========

Map
====

CP Control: Sedan, Brussels, Ostend, Belgrade, Lodz, Warsaw: +6
Sure CP Control: Antwerp +1
Potential CP Control: Bucharest, Verdun (there is a Level-2 Trench)
AP Control: Königsberg: -1
Potential AP Control: Danzig, Damascus

Cards
=====

CP Cards: Reichstag Truce: +1
AP Cards: Lusitania, Rape of Belgium, Zimmerman Telegram, 14 Points, Blockade (4x): -9
Sure Cards: Blockade (1x), Convoy: -2
Potential Cards: US1, US2, High Seas Fleet, Lloyd George

What else?
===========

CP will not be able to topple the Tsar: -2
AP bid: +1

Current VP: 7
Sure AP cards leads to VP: 5
CP win of Antwerp leads to VP: 6

Therefore, I think the CP have lost.
What is your view on that?

843 6/20/2019 8:16:00 AM Summer 1918 Moderator Message The time limit for this round is over. I need an immediate VP check and reasons why your side should win. This game will be adjucated if winner is not agreed upon.
