38 2/25/2021 9:20:00 AM August 1914 Allies Message i'll be offline rest of day until tonight. thursdays my wife and i volunteer driving around piscataquis county, maine delivering foodboxes and meals on wheels to low-income households, some way out in the woods. i teach global affairs at yale university via zoom on mondays and wednesdays. i'd love to blame my poor play on such distractions, but reality is that you are better at developing a plan and carrying it through while also capitalizing on my mistakes. my challenge with allies is not to be too cautious but not dumb (losing 3 RU armies in encirclement).

23 2/24/2021 6:08:00 PM August 1914 Central Powers Message I really don't consider Tarnopol that bad of luck. Ok, I didn't damage the RU, yet my army was only reduced so that's a win in itself for the rabble army of a crumbling empire.
