E/T Alliance

So in the last issue of the Briefing, Enriador wrote an article on the E/T alliance: https://mailchi.mp/5bd8f12006c1/lion-and-the-crescent

Curious on what you guys would add to it. What other ways can they help each other in the early and mid-game?

E/T is one of my favorite alliances when the other player is communicative. It's tons of fun scheming in your corners and plotting together.

One thing to consider is that it's easier for Turkey to solo when there's a strong England in the mid and late game.

The main challenge to a Turkish solo is getting the 18th center from France or Germany. Centers such as Munich, Marseille and Iberia are very difficult to take but if in the late game the E/G or E/F turn on each other it becomes much easier to grab one of these centers.

It would also be easier for England to stab France for the solo if their fleets are busy fighting Turkey's in the Med.

While there might be fewer opportunities for direct cooperation in the early game there certainly will be plenty in the late game. Since you need to eventually destroy all your neighbors to solo you could say the power in the opposite corner is your only real long term ally.
