PDL - Round 1 Viewers Lounge

Postby mjparrett » 13 Jan 2018, 21:52

Finally! All 9 games in Round 1 are go!

For those interested in keeping an eye on things; links below. For those not involved feel free to comment on the games and strategies etc. Will be interesting to see if the strategies employed differ across the leagues and I'll be posting some stats as we go about opening, and successful countries etc:

League 1

The "top" players (apparently!) Sadly there was a lack of signup from the top 25 or so players on site, although 1 or 2 have (thankfully) shown their face.

In League 1...

Game 1 has just got started. Yawn. Game 2 doesn't look great for France. An interesting board and the current position of Germany as well. Game 3 is my game :) So no comment there!

Over in League 2...

Game 1 not long started but a very unusual look already. Germany is under the kosh with Italy in Munich and Russia advancing. Game 2 hasn't got moving yet. Booo. Game 3 is our early leader (1904 already!) Austria looks healthy, France under pressure.

League 3...

Game 1 is our only mover here. Finally some good news for France as he has 3 builds. Risky. Italy loving life as he snaffles Greece.

GAME ON!

Not to be a wet blanket, but--do be careful how much you discuss strategies in a future context, because there is a rule about the forum influencing games. Obviously I'm not saying don't talk, just be careful about where that line is.

I jest :) Obviously I agree and I won't- my comments are purely observational one liners about what has happened so far. I won't be breaking any rules. I'll be waiting for games to finish before proper AARs are up and running and I start my stats about opening moves, who allies with who, and which countries are the best and worst to play (will it be France - Italy?)

No no, that wasn't aimed at you! Your comments were fine (I actually wrote that before I saw your second post). It was just a general reminder, cause it's easy to get caught up in the excitement sometimes :)

The other top players are evidently afraid of us :D
