Saxony (empError) & Muscovy (myopia)
Castile (LeRes) & Napoli (IceQueen)
This map resembles one I played earlier, with Molotov in Russia, me in Hanover, King_Kent in Napoli, and Oz in Aragon. That one should be posted in the other 2 vs 2 thread, and resulted in a north win. So I expected north to win this too, as the positions seemed even more favorable for north.
Myopia moved to Moldavia early, to put pressure on Macedonia early, to prevent Ice from using Asia. I tried to get England developed quickly, so that I could use the UK. As in the other game, this did not succeed, as LeRes took England just before it developed. After that, I quickly lost my defenses at Venetia and Luxembourg, and was down to a few lands with only my cap advanced. Ice, on the other hand, had some advanced backlands and looked tough to break. Myopia tried to help by coming through Scandinavia and protecting me in Scandinavia, but it was to no avail. In turn 36 Saxony fell, and south won.
