738 6/7/2019 3:04:00 AM Winter 1918 Moderator Message Congrats Mauro - sorry for the delay in getting this one in the books.

This was only the first round, so you'll both advance to the second of this double-elimination tournament. Good luck in future rounds!
737 5/24/2019 7:40:00 AM Winter 1918 Allies Message Hi Mauro. No, I haven't informed Michael. Please go ahead. Thanks.
736 5/24/2019 4:22:00 AM Winter 1918 Central Powers Message Hi Chris,
How are you ?
Have you informed Michael or do you prefer I do it ?
Have a nice day
Ciao Mauro
735 5/20/2019 3:50:00 PM Winter 1918 Central Powers Message Ciao Chris
what to say more. I have my own approach to the game that is more strategic than tactical, even if sometimes this makes me lose games for simple and trivial inattentions or simply because I get ugly cards in some rounds.
The strategy with the new rules is quite obligatory.
The CP must necessarily push East if he wants to play the fall of the Tsar and this exposes him to the West, so quickly cleaning the deck from useless cards and playing cards that can burn trenches is imperative. You played well but as you yourself pointed out you didn't put enough pressure in the West, while you came too far to the East with the Russians, which is useless and that only makes you spend so many OPS. Playing without too much pressure in the West I was able to manage the offensive to the East without too many worries. However I have never seen the CP win without deeply attacking Russia.
Whoever played more is certainly an advantage because he knows those details in the rules that sometimes make the difference. Thanks and in any case you are still inside the tournament and maybe we will meet again in the final, as I hope. Please inform our referee. Hi Mauro
734 5/20/2019 2:48:00 PM Winter 1918 Allies Message I think I'll call it here. I could replace (I have a 5OC card handy), but we both know I'm never going to be able to muster enough to crack that line once you redirect your eastern GE forces back west. Very well played, Maurizio. It is clear that you're a master of this game and I learned a lot by watching you progress through it.

You probably had already figured out this game was over several turns ago, but I wanted to try the western offensive before giving it up. By my count, you had 18 VPs going into turn 16 and I knew the odds were long to collect enough VPs for a win even with a breakthrough in the West

Its clear that I'm not at your skill level with Paths of Glory, but I'm not a newbie either. I realized towards the end of your eastern offensive, that I should have been attacking in the west even against terrible odds, just to soak off German RPs. I was leaving all the western Allied RPs unspent turn after turn and I figured it out too late that I should be doing something there. It's just that slamming forces into unwinnable battles isn't something that would have occurred to me until I could see how this paticular game played out.

To compound problems, I made no headway in Turkey. That was a combination of choice (I was playing MEF cards for other things) and poor card counting on my part (I forgot about Kemel). Watching you throw BUc armies into Turkey was eye-opening. Allied action in the Balkans went miserably for me after that.

I felt like I did well with VPs this game (at least well enough to keep you away from an auto-victory) and I had initial Russian success against Austria-Hungary, but I just couldn't capatilize on progress in the theater.

Thanks for a good game. Good luck in the rest of the tournament.

May not be played after MICHEL, BLUCHER, or PEACE OFFENSIVE. No BR attacks vs. Level 2 entrenched GE units may be made for the rest of this turn. The effect of this card is canceled by play of MICHEL, BLUCHER, or PEACE OFFENSIVE events. This event may mean that a BR MO cannot be fulfilled in a specific turn.
