• I think in the long term you may have me. I took way too long to get a coherent strategy going and losing the British fleet in the Atlantic may have cost me the game. I’m not entirely confident Russia will hold out despite the fact that the Pacific is more or less a stand still right now. I know the victory conditions pretty much requires all of one side’s VC despite the fact I’m confident you’ll never take London, I don’t think I can take Germany if Russia falls. I planned on playing till Russia falls. I’m at least pleased with the outcome of my second game.


  • @mr_stucifer Yeah I know, but maybe you want to do it for posterity’s sake!
