Yeah the smaller the ship, the smaller the hole has to be to sink it. I counted up the total hexes across the top, and figured I had another turn or two before we even met. I didnt consider that the capital city on both sides was going to be 8 or 9 hexes from the edge of the map and that it was going to be a knife fight. I did my usual pump PPs and engineers for the first turn or so, checked the force graph, wasnt very far behind, built the factory that put me ahead in production. I was just lazily expanding, planing on bumping into your trains...then its all like...those arent trains?! Scramble to build ACs, realize I forgot to upgrade my raw in my haste, and that my airplane factory used them all up making fighters! My encirclements didnt scare you much since there wasnt anything behind the front line lol. Once i had to fall back and my entrenchment was ruined, there was no recoving. Would have been a matter of sticking MGs and SMGs in cities and simply waiting for inevitable.
And yeah im always down for a game :) Considering joining SGs no water game. He's a good host.
I sure appreciate all the work hes put into all these games and the community. Herding cats usually, but hes a damned good sport about it.
And im one of those people who has just as much fun losing as winning. After all the Dwarf Fortress and Aurora, ive learned to lose quite gracefully...my War in the East games have hammered that lesson home as well lol.
ATG is a bit more my speed.
