Solo alert, Solo alert! Italian hits home run in PDL1.2.3. So much for the “only draws” naysayers brigade. Congratulations & very well played, Italy.

Someone decided to king make him? I hate it when that happens. :D

Italy wrote:Massive public apology to Russia who I just lied hugely to throughout this past turn. You’ll get blamed because ‘obviously’ I was pushing for solo. But that would be very unfair on you. Any casual observer will have no idea of the many aspects to this game, especially the last couple of years.
I’ll explain fully in AARs and elaborate more on the comms to drive wedges in what should have been a successful anti-solo alliance that would’ve left me on 17.

Hmm, it seems like there might be more to it than that.

Anyway, congratulations!


Meanwhile, England is ALMOST there in PDL 3. Round 2, #1. I guess he could still be stopped though.

Yep, England looks as good as there.
Sample size of 18 games & 4 (+?) solos (over 25%) in the first two rounds of PDL, with risk taking likely to grow towards the end of the season. Doesn’t much look like there is an issue deterring bold play, needing dire attention for next season. :)

Congrats, WarSmith (and happy birthday), congrats... England?

PDL 3 is HARSH, soon you need a solo to even have a chance of getting promoted. :D
