129 11/11/2019 1:50:00 PM Fall 1914 Central Powers Message Good game, and best of luck in the rest of the tournament! My first two rounds went the distance (or very close), so this is a very new and strange experience for me, as well. I set up a rematch game with us on the same sides, and will get that one started momentarily.
128 11/11/2019 12:04:00 PM Fall 1914 Allies Message Ordinarily I would play on as I have even still won games after losing Italy and Russian revolution occurring. But on this occasion, I doubt I can free those Russian armies in time while also defending the West against all those full strength armies. If you play it right this turn you may even be able to get all the VP spaces to tip you over for an auto victory.

Letís have a side game for fun using tournament rules. I need the practice otherwise I am out of the tournament with another loss. Congratulations on your win. I canít say that I have ever lost on the third turn before.

Letís keep the sides the same if you agree. Play when you are ready.

Iíll let Michael dauber know that you have won.
127 11/11/2019 7:55:00 AM Fall 1914 Central Powers Message Are you sure? Thereís still a lot of game to play. Losing Verdun was extremely bad luck. Itís not impossible that you could take it back and break the Russian armies out before the end of the turn, though. Digging out of the hole youíre in with lost French armies will be challenging, but you do have reinforcements to look forward to.

Totally up to you. Just let me know if you want to continue . . . I really enjoy playing. Alternatively, Iíd be happy to start of a new side game with you if you want a rematch!
126 11/10/2019 10:57:00 PM Fall 1914 Allies Message I am going to have to concede defeat. I won't be able to pull it back from here with two lost Russian armies and the Western Front collapsing.

Well done. I have never been so sorely defeated! I know it is obvious but my biggest mistake was playing too many events and not playing a 4-op card for RPs in the second turn.

You may also find this hard to believe but usually the non-capture of Sedan early in the game results in an AP victory if it can be held. You made me really regret my aggressive early move.
125 11/10/2019 10:50:00 PM Fall 1914 Allies Message this is becoming a disaster.

117 11/10/2019 1:51:00 PM Fall 1914 Allies Message No need to give warnings when advancing in after combat.
116 11/10/2019 1:50:00 PM Fall 1914 Central Powers Message Do you typically play that OOS warnings are required where an advance after combat could leave units OOS? For example, if I want to drop a GeC into Brest Litovsk and attack Lublin, am I required to give an OOS warning to Ivangorod? The tournament FAQ says they are not required in that situation, but I have seen them given anyway. I'm not sure that would even be my best move, but want to make sure we're on the same page about what is required.
