    Karl felt that going for the capital was too high risk.

    Nuking 4 aa guns + a major factory, and grabbing 4 IPCS that Italy can’t get back. Doesn’t seem all that bad as an alternative.

    What were you expecting?

  • Liaison TripleA '11 '10

    Hey bold it’s been like an hour since the last move And a week since anyone has heard from Seth, how come you’re not jumping up and down about schedule???

    haha…  well, seth was already shell-shocked BEFORE you annihilated java.  it will be a miracle if he’s still breathing now.  losing northern italy and 4 aa guns may have been the last straw.

    at least his cruiser killed an american bomber in z92.  gotta look on the bright side.

    Yeah, and that damn cruiser got my French fighter too!

    Dice rape.

  • Liaison TripleA '11 '10

    This is a very interesting turn for Italy.  A lot of strategic decisions to make, and a lot of variables.

    Tough to say for sure what I would do.

  • 2022 '20 '19 '18 '17 '16 '15 '14 '12

    The wisest course of action would be for Italy to declare war on the neutrals.  It will really open things up…. lots of possibilities there…

    Wisdom. 🙂

    Fortune favors the bold UNLESS your name is Bold.


  • I think I have a good idea of what I’m going to do, just waiting on input from my partner. He’s busy right now, but he should be coming back to me later, so expect Italy to post sometime tonight.

    And man oh man . . . Java was just simply . . . wow those were some DICE! I’ve sacrificied a lamb to the dice gods and performed a ritual cleansing in order to appease their wrath … . hopefully it has an effect.

    Gents, I am traveling with my family, so getting some quality minutes to look over the map is rough, and obviously I need more than a few minutes given the situation as it is.  So, I asked Seth to hold off for a bit so we can get on the same page.

    Wisdom…  and you have earned right to take some extra time.

  • Liaison TripleA '11 '10

    Take your time.  My only fear is that seth will disappear for another week again! 😞

    The planners plan but planning won’t do you any good when DOOM has arrived…  :evil:
