Great! Morroco's infiltration was a complete success. Now my best bet would be to destroy everything at ease, not leave a single troop in no city, until reaching the French capital. There, your troops are too exposed, and they will be an easy target. If you start moving them and conquering the territories, it will start their nightmare!

Oh, and I think that the 77 troops should start a counter attack, and start re-taking cities, now more than ever since everyone went to France.

If I can get some guidance on what troops are where I think we can turn this around *really* quickly if we all attack intelligently and in a coordinated manner since they've all got heavy losses. I won't move my troops out until I know it's safe though since I just rebuilt my capital (huzzah!) and am fortifying it at the moment. I desperately need materials though, since i am losing them pretty steadily (and cash, I'm almost broke). I hope this goes well though, since it would make for an amazing comeback.

Hum, Morroco's army will be a trouble. Even when it has lost tons of morale and now it have only 50 force, if he sends it to reinforce, we will be in quite a trouble. Let's hope I can get that RoW quick and make an all in attack.

*Edit* Perhaps raiding would be a goood idea. If the cities rebel, there is a high chance it rebels to one of us, or to a neutral with which we have RoW, and that way we won't loose any morale from leaving the troops protecting a 25% morale city. That can turn the things around, if we don't stay still.

I'm sending what I can Alex. I know it isn't much, but with all the factories/arty I'm building I really don't have any more to spare... No cash either.

I hope ntcp gets on in time to abort the attack because he is going to be butchered.

I will be striking Lille (again) tomorrow. Unfortunately my desperate attempts to turn the tide have cost me many men. After this wave arrives I will be building up for the next couple days since I will finally have some arty support.

Wrong Game?

Post  Zeek33 on Sat Jan 14, 2012 7:31 pm

You said Morocco's army will be trouble. They're on our side. I'm sending troops around to harass, the French, distracting their troops are striking their weak points. Let's see where this take us.

hold off on the counter-attack in France; push on Germany

Post  ntcp on Sat Jan 14, 2012 8:29 pm

From what I've seen, efforts to counter-attack have been drastically punished. The Swedes were slaughtered at Lille, the Moroccans have had to pull out of Marseilles, and the Brits are about to lose Brest. It's simply to easy too easy for our enemy, coordinating from the center, to respond to our attacks, however much brief success we may have. Push the counter-attack in Germany, now that their armies have been recalled back to the Channel and Mediterranean.

I plan to wage a war of island conquest if their garrisons have been withdrawn, and if not, to fall back to North Africa and either take out Tunisia once I have artillery, or not go to war with them and attempt a turning movement against Spain through Portugal once I get ROW. I'm lagging in the weapons race, so chances are Spain will have artillery before I will. I'll still be able to meet him on the beaches. But if we both have artillery it will make a beach assault difficult for both of us.

Also, Alex, I would encourage you to counter-attack in Germany. Your 80 troops would be extremely useful, and Britain, Sweden, and Russia have shown that the land can be retaken. Now is the time to restore the natural borders, if practicable.

I have some food if you need it Zeek and since my stocks of coal are decent but at -257/hr I wouldn't mind more.

I agree 100% with what you're saying ntcp. (Btw what does your name stand for so I can use an actual name rather than an acronym haha.)

I would add however that Russia needs to make some sort of move. I know your waiting for successful spy operations or arty or even a RoW but you have to at least /pressure/ A-H in the meantime. They can see your 42 troops in Kiev so they probably have almost no garrison in Lemberg. That is why I'm looking at so many troops in Stuttgart and them pushing to Frankfort right now would be disastrous.

I lagged on the artillery race on this one. My fault entirely. I will fake an attack toward A-H, and when my troops either defeat or make the enemy run in the north, I will send my troops to help Germany, against A-H. I have plenty of oil to spare. If anyone need, just send the order. Lumber would be appreciated, but if someone lacks of it also, have no trouble sending me the order for oil without anything in exchange.

Stupid Belgians randomly turned on me... more bad luck for me in this game... Like I said, I'll be recuperating for at least another day. On the bright side I'll be bringing some heavy guns with me.

I don't need any oil... actually my economy is pretty balanced, just pumping out arty and factories. We will need a late game push it looks like.

Got my first one. Now I can piss off France by bombarding their shoreline.

I won't attack yet the city, they are waiting me to try for that, and get me with the double of the troops (Watch that AH isn't fully retreating to other city, only out of range of my artillery) so I will wait for some reinforcements, and I will try to get them by surprise.

Well, my guess was right, he is counter attacking now but it will be in vain. Now, about the north: What if Alex fakes a retreat, and while they are conquering your city, we attack, you with your 5 troops that will divert the artillery, and I with my 44, to finish off that army, and hopefully that artillery? If not, they will have more land to send an attack to Sweden, and you will loose yet another territory. And if we stop them, I will have it more easy to conquer AH.

Zab, sending what little resources I have to spare. Currently I'm churning out building and arty. Iron is much more rare however... I can probably float you enough wood though so that you can put iron production to full. I have to imagine Zeek has iron to trade for oil and/or food.

My arty will be able to keep them back (for awhile) but I will be crush morale-wise sitting in German lands.

If I may be perfectly blunt? I believe that the fact 3 out of 5 of us had to cross bodies of water to fight (Sweden, Britain, and Morocco) likely led to this disasters, but also the fact that I think that despite my hugely positive kill to death ratio I've had to fight troops from /every/ enemy nation without end. I specifically address Morocco and Britain. Without arty flying across the channel and aero planes raining death from the skies you will never cross the water. Not crossing the water (successfully) in 24-48 hours will mean defeat in this game. Our only remaining advantage is that we have (nearly) all the oil.

Food

Post  Zeek33 on Wed Jan 18, 2012 1:28 am

I'm running really low on food. Anybody got any they can share? Btw, people negative on energy, make yourself negative on coal and take mine. I have 50k+ and rising.

Trade on the way zeek. I can't exactly be a major food exporter, but I've got your back.

Alex you need to trade away what resources you have. If it becomes possible we can tag you back in, but for now I think we probably all need everything we have.

If things stalemate I might have to take Finland to keep pumping out materials...
