Yes. I much prefer playing players at or somewhat below my skill level. I don't like playing way below my skill level (no challenge, waste of time), and I don't like playing above my skill level (war is more fun when you're winning). Got a problem with that?
Last night I scanned over your G1 against TDJ. It was extremely fortunate. As I said before, it doesn't prove anything to play anyone other than TDJ after G1, because you made your G1 moves knowing it was TDJ. You have to prove you would try it against me. If you get really lucky again, then so be it, I'll just have to deal with it.
No, sorry, I don't play Triple A and I'm not going to put the time into figuring out which version to download and getting it working and learning all of its idiosyncracies just to play one game with you. So it will have to be ABattlemap.
Yes, I'm swamped right now (6 games) and it seems like half a year since I just voluntarily started a new game (most are tournaments, championships, and rematches). But I think I can start this new one with you within a month or less. Always interesting to play someone new, and interesting to play a themed game.
Again, just to be clear, you're going to give me a standard bid (say 10 or 11) and I will put it in a standard place but not Karelia or Egypt. (Say a destroyer to 12, and 2 IPC's to Russia or an infantry somewhere else, like India or something) Then we'll play however we want, but you will attack Karelia and Egypt on G1. I also want it to be a league game 2012 so that it counts, and I'm glad you do too.
And for the record, I only said I have never seen anyone attack Egypt and Karelia on G1 at the same time, implying that it was too risky, or reckless, or a bad strategy, or whatever. And you came along and said that you had just recently done just that against TDJ (which you had) and succeeded. And I said basically, that's nice, but you did it knowing you had inferior competition. Then you said if that's the case, then take me on after G1 with that save file. I said that's ridiculous, because you made those moves knowing it was TDJ and not Gamerman01 across the table from you. You called me a coward. So then it's game on.
This will be fun. Heck go ahead and start it, just know that I might not be able to move frequently for a few weeks as I wrap up other games I'm tied up with.
Sorry you don't like ABattlemap typing. It's not a problem for me because I type really fast.
