Bulgaria (RIPPE) vs Aquitainte (Myopia)
Judge (Ghost) Ulster
Turn 1 The map is littered with +1 devs RIPPE has at least 4 in the close area to Myopia's 3 but he does have a +2 Gascony
Turn 3 Alot of countries begin on armies. RIPPE has a good start taking 6 lands by now to myopia's 3
Turn 4 Myopia talks of a restart after RIPPE has twice as many lands, he also has bad luck. They do however play on.
Turn 6 Many of Myopia's lands have 4 or more armies plus 5 forted armies in genoa.
Turn 9 RIPPE advances and Myopia is fair behind I beleive. As well as advancing faster RIPPE also has a lead in all catergories except gold.
Turn 10 Like normal i am wrong, Myopia advances. A 40k +1 dev austria falls into RIPPE's hand and is by far the best land in central Europe.
Turn 11 A quick note, Myopia seems to suffer from bad luck early on. Provence is still not take after 4 only kill 1. However, many of the 30k lands have just deved totaling up to 5 for myopia.
Turn 14 RIPPE still leads but myopia has better developed lands now although less overall, also he is taking good advantage of a good UK and french coast.
Turn 15 First contact is at lux, helv both make 1 army per turn.
Turn 17 RIPPE's good start is beginning to show, all his front lands are mostly 50k dev and he has more armies, however myopia is catchig up by having the only other advanced lands except caps in gascony.
Turn 19 RIPPE now has almost double the pop of Myopia which is helped by the local leaders which seem to now mostly farm his lands.
Turn 22 Both lose armeis in winter but myopia loses less and has 20 more armies, a first move to genoa could change the game since it's keep will add good protection.
Turn 23 3 of the 4 forts are now under pressure by myopia, all could fall giving myopia the chance to get 6 more armies per turn from 3 provences.
Turn 24 Myopia loses 22 v 11 in 1 fort but gets the other 8 v 5
Turn 26 Battles rage at lux - rhine, helv - burgundy and genoa - venetia as well as down south in tunis - algiers.
Turn 30 Myopia has been pushed out of all except lux. RIPPE has 15 more lands as well as 75 more pop and 36 culture. Looks over from my perpective.
Turn 35 RIPPE still has 13 more lands and a great pop lead but still myopia does not give in, he throws everything at RIPPE to try and just take the next land
Turn 40 RIPPE is far in the lead now, with 15 more lands and 109 more pop and 41 more culture as well as 112 more armies.
Turn 42 Myopia concedes since there is no chance or winning for him. Was a gg and maybe could have been differnet if not for myopia's start, but RIPPE did play very well and deserved the win.
