Agan, re-posting arguments here:

AardvarkArmy wrote:Whereas, the smaller powers now stand at: Berlin - 2, Copenhagen - 2, Brussels - 1 & Ankara - 1; and

Wheras, the Big Three continue to demonstrate complete harmony and unity of purpose; and

Whereas, therefore, any rational uncertainty regarding the inevitable outcome of this game should be mute;

Therefore, I once again propose a draw to include:

Vienna (presser84), Madrid (kerrmit) and Dublin (AardvarkArmy)

you've got to be kidding.... now it really is just silly!

Let's all get orders in asap and work those "speed deadlines" to complete these last 2 pointless sets of orders.

Eh, maybe lecrae's hoping somebody will show some ambition? Though the result is likely to be the same for him regardless.

Nah, I got it wrong. It's VERY serious. I am bolstering my defenses against the Berliner onslaught now!

"ambition" is simply a completely unrealistic option in this game - the "Big Three" are too nearly equal - any one that made any effort to bludgeon forward would be immediately crushed by the other two...

Lecrae, the only leverage the smaller powers this year was to have been to banded together and offered to king-maker one of the larger powers. That didn't happen. At this point I do not see any of the sub 3 center powers factoring into the end-game because now they lack to fire power to have an impact.

unrelated...I have no idea why London agreed to work with Dublin against Brest in 1904. That I'd be interested to hear about in the AAR.
