I'll write a short recap only.

Lithuania vs Aragon
Master vs Rex
Judge: Me (Crete)

The map seemed fair, with a slight advantage to Rex, due to a very heavy UK.
The start also sligthly favored Rex, but Master was very aggresive and headed towards rex very early, clashing in Luxembourg. The game contuined this way, the fight being around Luxembourg, Saxony and Napoli. Population very equal, some turns Rex had many more lands. However, Master had a better advanced front towards Germany, and therefore mannaged to stress Rex enough, to not build england and france up. As the game proceded, Master got more and more control, while he also got more and more luck.

Winner is therefore Master

Rippe (Muscovy) vs XuuL (Grenada)

Rippe had a good start while advancing fast. I had an average start. When we met in the middle i could capture a fort of Rippe where he bought development. His advantage was gone at this point, so the game was kinda balanced till turn 40..

Since about turn 40, Rippe was 8-15 countries ahead with control in england and germany, whereas his frontlands were kinda poor. I could manage to hold with a rich frontrow. Sadly i could not hold Helvetica and Lux, but i could disturb Macedonia and Dalmatia all over the game.

From this point, it was clear that only luck could save me. I could hold my center frontrow while i could get control over africa. Rippe pulled back his armies turn by turn until 200 units were facing each other in Natolia and Nicaea at winter.

I did not had the 1st move to get nicaea, so i had to pay much too much, losing all my units in africa and central europe. Now, Rippe could easily catch my whole frontrow and therefor win the game.

Game was over in turn 92.

GG
