711 1/10/2021 3:44:00 PM Summer 1917 Allies Message Thanks Carl, and good game!

Yeah, I think the Russians just barely held on at Grodno, but it was enough and prevented TTC from ever getting off. I think you pulled back from the west front a bit too early, but when you did, you should have just gone to the Rhine and entrenched instead of the slow retreat/push back. That would have allowed you to focus even more on Russia. I wouldn't have renewed the west front offensive until Russia was to BR or Treaty - but what you were doing there was quite impressive! Nice focus on punishing the French - but the AP can bend a lot so long as it keeps forcing GE losses.

Making it this far in the tournament was good - look forward to seeing you in the next one!
710 1/10/2021 3:31:00 PM Summer 1917 Central Powers Message ouch!
7/5

And with that I think I will throw in the towel.
While good cards are a-coming I think that it is best that I capitulate as the losses are both too great and I feel I can't give the game the attention it deserves, with bad/wrongful orders, due to personal circumstances.

Great showing with the Russians despite heavy rolls against you! I wish you luck in the rest of the tournament and hope to return the next season for a better showing.
