One 2 vs 2 I remember vividly from months ago:
King_Kent (Ulster) vs ncklol (Transylvania)
FlashGordon (Aquitaine) vs empError (Nicaea)
This game lasted for ages. I think we passed turn 80, before west conceded. But progress for east was very, very slow. Had we played until a cap fell, we would have been playing all night (and I believe we played until 3 at night, European time)
I had a tremendous start, but this was annihilated when I lost a fort in Rome to Flash, and for at least 10 turns I tried to get it back, gambling on first turn, but every time Flash was first, shattering my troops. After that, it seemed I would have to slowly retreat, but ncklol was winning over Kent, and spent some huge forces on Flash, eventually getting me back in the saddle. Even then, Flash managed to cut some 30 armies off, and I realised that progress in central Europe would be slow. Instead I made a slow progress in Africa, up till Spain, while ncklol pushed Kent out of Germany. At this point, it was clear that east would win eventually, and west conceded.
