304 3/21/2020 8:46:00 AM Fall 1915 Allies Message As you like, actually.
303 3/20/2020 4:09:00 PM Fall 1915 Central Powers Message Hi, sure, we can play another game. I may try to set it up over weekend. Same terms as the last time?
302 3/20/2020 7:11:00 AM Fall 1915 Allies Message Hi Maciek
What about beginning another PoG ?
Otherwize, I hope you're fine.
Let me know
François
301 2/5/2020 9:23:00 AM Fall 1915 Central Powers Message Sure we can try another game. I would suggest to start over in two weeks time - I am going for holidays on 8th, so will not be able to play for at least a week.

AP strategy from my experience in vanilla game is to avoid fighting with GE as Russians. Russia is weak early on and if Russians try to be on the offensive against GE, they usually fail.

Also War Status is important - if AP falls behind too far then it gives CP initiative for far too long and late game becomes more evenly matched as opposite to more historical outcome where CP should struggle. CP may even break Russia or Italy completely.

Actually I don't see any chance of CP winning in long game if AP plays conservative game. Early CP rolls don't matter that much since usually CP lacks punch and AP has still time to rebuild. CP needs to play aggresively and also get rid of poor cards which is difficult. Often 1 poor die roll, either on attack or defence for CP can ruin the whole game in mid game.

For AP it rarely happens as AP usually has time on their side.
300 2/3/2020 3:57:00 AM Fall 1915 Allies Message Yup, I saw since the first round that your strategy was to make Russians collapse fast, meaning of sacrifice of the Westerne front at the beginning. I tried to put a pressure in the West as soone as possible, but I could'nt do anything with such a bad luck.
What would you have done diffrently in my place ? I'm interested with your analysis ?
Now, let me know if you want to try another one with me. Hoping it won't be as disastrous regarding dice rolls. But if you're annoyed by my present disengagement, I would understand your reticence... I could also be too much unexperienced for you.
299 2/2/2020 1:25:00 PM Fall 1915 Central Powers Message Yes, your rolls were terrible in this game, the last ones went against you completely, but previous ones could have been deciding - I had very few armies in the West not entrenched, so I could have lost there if you have thrown me out of Frankfurt, and probably would have lost the whole game as a result. It was a pure gamble from my side.

CP has upper hand in current situation, but from my experience it is not decided yet, as long game in vanilla favours AP, but I respect your decision.

298 2/1/2020 5:54:00 AM Fall 1915 Allies Message By the way,sorry. I'm not used to do that.usually, I'm struggling until the end...
297 2/1/2020 5:40:00 AM Fall 1915 Allies Message Hi Maciek
I give up. Our match is becoming a joke. My series of systematic ridiculous rolls on western front makes this game unplayable for me. Every attempt to put pressure on you is immediatly ruined for turns. Eventually, I am just the spectator of you playing easy, thanks to your great experience of the game. It’s also of no interest to you, I guess.
It’s a pity, because your big agressivity is giving unsusual and interesting situations to deal with, as far as I know the game...

296 1/31/2020 5:17:00 PM Fall 1915 Central Powers Message sorry for dealy, I had busy end of week

btw, do we play with optional trench rule?

I thought we were going to play vanilla game without this rule. It didn't matter much so far as you were able to build trenches right away in Italy, but I think we need to clarify that for the future :)
