    Move infantry, armor from Japan to Hawaii instead of to Amur
    Instead of infantry, artillery from Japan to Phillipines, take 1 infantry from Japan and 1 from Midway to Hawaii
    Move tac from Buyant-Uhaa to Japan instead of to Chahar

    Sorry, I should get in the habit of saving the map right before non-combat movement I guess.
    Sorry also about the destroyed fleet…. maybe you didn’t realize everything that could get there.

    Are we continuing?

  • '19 '18 '17 '16 '15

    Yeah, I did not calculate all that could reach 45, I think I cannot revert this, inferior economy and army. Thank you for another great lesson!

  • 2022 '15 '11 '10 Official Q&A Moderator

    You got it, Juan

    I am actually looking to start another game since my other 2 are wrapping up and round 2 of playoffs might be a bit in the future… You had enough of me, or want to play first 2015 game against me?

    I need to take care of your “elite” status  😉
    Totally up to you - no pressure

  • '19 '18 '17 '16 '15

    Jaja, I wanted to play you for learning mainly, because winning you was not in my hand but that was not an issue because I was not worried about my Tier last year. Now it would be great continuing playing you, but if I loose the league lead and I will loose chances to reach the play-offs, and I think I am near them allthough it is just December.

    In terms of the league games, I have 5-0, a not reported win (I am saving it to see the Tier of that player when league advances) and 2 games on-going with JWW and Gargantua who should be Tier 1/2 at the end. I think I will concentrate on those 2 for now, it is difficult but if I win both I would have chances to lead the league for the full year.

    Of course I would be happy to play for fun, but I beleive you are looking for an easy win vs a Tier 1… jeje

  • 2022 '15 '11 '10 Official Q&A Moderator

    You gamer, you

    No problem - as many games as you play, I’m sure your PPG will settle down where it should be. 
    And I’m afraid 4.8 will not be high enough to lead the league anyway…
    You do know there’s an elite tier now?  People can start earning 7 points, and you will earn 3 even for losing against an elite.

    Then again a lot of the leading players of the previous league are having a rather rough start. Wheatbeer isn’t even t1 at the moment.

  • 2022 '15 '11 '10 Official Q&A Moderator

    Believe it or not, I’m not interested in harvesting points from you.  I think you’ll end up at tier 2 eventually.  I was just looking for a fun game against a decent player who is a good sport and who plays quickly.  You’re an ideal person to play.

    But that’s fine, thanks for the 2 games!  🙂

    Good observation - I am sure that they all will return to where they were.  I don’t know how Karl is so low, but he will be back to at least high tier 3 before long.

    It’s only been 1 month.  All standings look weird only 1/12 of the way into the season.  MLB, NFL, NBA, whatever sport you choose.  Small sample size.  It is fun to watch though, isn’t it, blighter?

  • 2022 '15 '11 '10 Official Q&A Moderator

    You can keep on fantasizing about #1, Juan, but when I get to 4 games I will be #1  :mrgreen:

    As an European who isn’t interested in baseball e.t.c. I wouldn’t know if it is fun to watch :D. I have friends who watch NBA tho. So I do know a little about what goes on in that sport, but that is mostly from the sidelines.

    As for Karl. I think this season he will hit rock bottom. I don’t think he has found his way back up just yet. Then again his ppg should rise if gargantua reaches tier 1 status, but it will drop a little when juanspain loses his elite status :P. So whatever you do juanspain don’t lose again. Do it for karl :D.

  • 2022 '15 '11 '10 Official Q&A Moderator

    🙂  It’s all fun

    Blighter, sorry about the American references, my point was just if you take any season of any game/sport you will often have strange records in the first 1/12 of the season.

  • '19 '18 '17 '16 '15

    I think my real level, is around upper Tier 2, so you are basically right Gamer in all what you say, but that PPG reduction that you mention would happen if I play a lot (and not taking a lot of care of my moves, as I did last year when I completed 66 games and finished lower Tier 2).

    I was lucky at the beginning and have wins vs Wheat, Roboto, Karl, MrCunego and Artofwar. All can be Tier1/2 later in the league, and that means PPG>5. ). I can take advantage of the league rules if I play little this year.

    I know it is very difficult for me to win vs JWW and Gargantua, but they can be Tier 1 also, so if those wins happen, I think my final PPG with 8 games could be above 5, and even if I loose one, I could reach the playoffs, so may be my best strategy for now is play little in this league and a lot outside. Given my real level (I agree with you on where it is), it may be almost impossible reaching a similar position in a league, ever.

    I did not intend to say you are opportunistic, I was just kidding, truly, it is a real pitty for me not taking the chance to play a master like you some more now, but those almost secure losses would not help my current strategy.

    If I loose those 2 games, I may declare a lot of wars again…

    It has been nice anyway leading the league for 1 month now and reaching that elite status…

    Something different would be…, if you accepted taking Allies with no bid, that would be an even game I think, but I would not take that unnecessary risk in your case.

    Thank you for the 2 games also, it was just great for me, I hope playing a lot more with you soon.

    Juan

    Jajajaja, thanks for your words Sir, I will do my best for me and for Karl for sure!! He is one of the greatest guys I have played, last year was real fun, we played 5 times in the league!!, and he tought me a lot of the basics. Thank you Karl and return where you deserve man!!! KILL KILL KILL!!!

    Indeed it was a pleasure, and I will just look forward to playing with you again whenever that may be.
    Good luck in your quest, and happy gaming
