LNO (Grenada) vs EmpError (Nicaea)

Judge: DirtyHarry (Hanover)


With 40k in byzans and 30+1 in greece EmpError chose to develop a bit early, while LNO expanded with his 30k +1 dev in aragon. In the start LNO had more lands, but the population was still even. LNO rushed forward towards the center fast, and chose to keep his lands around cap on gold to buy the front (provence, aquetauine) while emperror just developed. Although dalmatia vas dev from the start EmpError took it very late, and afterwards he also pointed out that it was a mistake from his part. After LNO had secured the center around a vital Rhineland (70k +1 dev when he got it) the game was decided, although Emp tried to recover by taking the rest of Russia.

EmpError conceded in turn 41, and wished LNO good luck in the rest of the tournament.

Perhaps Ghost should replace dray, as sovereign has not been heard from in quite some time, and I have not seen him online either.

I don't think taking Dalm late was such a problem: Serbia and Hungary were just easier to take, and I didn't want to waste moves on not taking Dalm. The problem was rather that I advanced it late, because I spent several turns moving my armies from Dalm to Austria, in hopes of getting to Rhineland. With LNO in Venetia, it was too risky to advance Dalm. In hindsight, I had better advanced Dalm, and only then try to get to Rhineland.

Of course I also buy dev and adv, just not as much as LNO. I don't want to delay Asia's becoming supportive because of reaping money from it. Basically, I only used Crete for money, and the rest only after advancing (with the exception of winter urgencies).

Also, for the record, LNO and me were pretty even in the score up till turn 20 or so. But I had only a +2 in Bulgaria. I'm sure LNO had more than that. And that is not considered for the score. If it would be counted, LNO would have some (minor) advantage from quite early on.

DANNYRAY, since sovereign didnt showed up so far i think you should battle ghost for the seat in the first round. you really shouldnt pass out since you are such a experienced 1 vs 1 player. i am very sure that all WARRIORS will be quite disappointed with you staying out of this, but in the end its your decision.

If dannyray really doesn't want to play perhaps I could take his place and battle ghost for a spot?

for inactivity i disqualify SOVEREIGN. since ghost asked to late join first, he will get the chance to fight dannyray for a seat in round 1!

ghost: castile
dannyray: nicaea

after 42 turns the game started to lag while on top of the battle. ghost had a slow start but managed through clever gameplay to catch up. dannyray expanded fast but wasnt able to take use of his early advantage. the game got unplayable due to extreme lagging and was decided draw by the judge (me), leading to a rematch for a final decision.

123456 (that's the kind of combination an idiot would put on his luggage), I'm calling you out!

My times is a bit limited at the moment, but I should be here Tuesday evening around 8:00 EST and possibly Wednesday and/or Thursday all evening (probably 1 of the days, not both... not sure which yet). The weekend is probably no good.

Prepare to get Squeegified!
