How... repetitive... :D



The Greeks are somewhat undependable allies when it comes to keeping promises. I am sure the fleet of 300 galleys they promised will turn out to be 3 guys in an oversized cooking pot. (Thanas, revealing the plans for German world domination)

This odyssey, this, exodus. Do we journey toward the promised land, or into the valley of the kings? Three decades ago I envisioned a new future for our species, and now that we are on the brink of realizing my dream, I feel only solitude, and regret. Has my entire life's work been a fool's crusade? Have I led my people into this desert, only to die?

Beautifully executed stab - well if you actually had had any opposition to it except for Hold orders it would probably taste sweeter...

It might actually provoke a reaction from them! Also I need the troops so I can resist the massive amounts of Ottomon Opression heading my way.

That StP-Liv move was brilliant. It guaranteed you a build where no other solution did. Nice.

The British Army is celebrating the taking of the vast wine reserves in Brest, one wonders if they'll be able to move or get stuck like the French were.

Of course speaking of France, it's looking quite likly that by 1908, I will have finally achieved every Englishmans dream, and destroyed them once and for all.

Is this the kind of game where when one country takes the majority of supply centers, the game is over?

If so, we might not get to 1908 :P

I believe the number you need to get is 18, and I'm hopeful that the Anglo-Russian Alliance can prevent the Turks from claiming that many.

I still think it was a mistake for you to not act aggressively sooner.

At the time you were encouraging me to be agressive, Germany was still active and twice as powerful as me, while I didn't have the number of forces to anything other then get bogged down in France!

And I'm not going to call it Stalemate until we've at least tried to push you back.

Oh, we will get a 1908.
Russian front is 4 vs 4 - so barring luck on any side, that is gridlocked. Hence the brilliance of the Livonia move it saved the day.

The only other centers within two turkish moves are Venice and Munich, but it is the same units facing both.
So the only realistic gains for turkey in 1907 is +1c. So barring massive luck and or NMRs this will definately last into 1908 if not 1909 depending on france.
