Lucky I am a mod for this forum and can just delete posts I don't like!

All round 2 games are almost there, I'll get the links in soon.

And over in round 1, just a few stragglers left (including my game!)

Patience people! Links now in. Early days yet (and I haven't trolled through the PP), but the early movers and shakers are:

1.1 Russia and France both under the cosh here. Germany looking good, although maybe over reaching himself. Some classic Lepanto action in the south sees Turkey also face an uphill battle. It might be my computer isn't working, or the PP is empty?! WTF?

1.2 My game. No further comment. Apart from one player is devilishly handsome and should be respected above all else.

1.3 More Lepanto action! Round 2; The year of the Lepanto. Starring Val Kilmer as Austria. The rule book has already been quoted in the PP which makes me smile. People actually read that shit! Russia looks string in the north. England needs a friend.

Over to League 2. Will the race for promotion intensify....?

2.1 No Lepanto? Get out. England again possibly in trouble as Germany controls the North Sea, a very strong position for him. In reviewing the orders all looks a little SeaLion to me. Ouch

2.2. Fairly sedate opening. Russia's builds are fairly telling. England about to get it in the neck soon perhaps? Round 2; the day England got smashed. Starring Danny DeVito as England.

2.3 England prospers. No Lepanto! Russia without a build. How very sad. Someone in the PP wants to see my "fave". If you 7 way draw that people, I'll show you whatever you want to see. Now play.

3.1 Has barely got moving. Both game and PP. Yawn.

3.2 1903? Applause. Turkey is Moscow? Applause. England in Sweden and France in Tuscany? Fantastic. More applause. Russia jests in the PP. Although he must be raging. Everyone against him!

3.3 France looks in trouble. Austria in Sevastopol. More 7 way draw chat. Just before it all kicks off and people start stabbing. Nice tactic...

After a loss in round 1, and now being stabbed in round 2, we have our first surrender/quitter of the round in game 2.3.

Bear with me people - my replacement list has been messaged and I hope to have someone to step in for you before this deadline is up.

Thanks
Mike

Thanks Mike. Poor form for the participant to take his ball and go home.

That's surprising. I almost wrote something in the other thread about the first round being a trial by fire, and how after that all the withdrawals would be because of real life reasons.

Good thing I didn't write that and show everyone that I'm too naive.

It's not often that a season goes as poorly as Fall 03 did for Austria:

I have never surrendered and never NMR'd, and hope to keep that alive. Never mind, the perfect run has come to an end. Dammit, DAMMIT, DAMMIT.
