Yay, it's back. Seriously, this is a highlight of my day (well, one of).
The only reason why I went to read John's AAR was because I was curious about the extent of the "disaster" (furious air quotation, hands going up and down vigoroously).
Once I saw the extent of losses, I laughed.
Unfortunately, since I peeked at John's AAR I cannot give you any of my game-"wisdom" (errr, furious air quotes here also, ahem).
John has been so far aggressive and he lives to raid, attack, pillage, and hear the lamentation of (pixelated) women.
That's what makes this a great game.
I can say this, without any opsec breach.
The funniest thing is that when reading this AAR, the CIC is scoring brilliant victory one after another, his complicated, obtuse plans always come to fruition, and the game is one long series of triumphs achieved by, lets face it, a genius level player.
Imagine my shock (just imagine!!!) when I peeked at John's AAR and.... I saw the same thing!

Makes one think about historical books and narratives by generals from previous wars..... say, german generals who were always oh-so-brilliant, massacring those pesky soviets with one hand tied behind their back, easily, and would have won the war except for that pesky, mad austrian house-painter who spoiled everything.......
Actually, ANY war memoir and historical book.... makes one think....
