I've posted the beginning of my AAR and hopefully at some point will be able to post my reflections on the rest of the game.

Jeez "Another", I hate to say, but your avatar has gone from bad to worse. Were you in a car accident or something?

I know, I know, I'm no charmer either.

LoL

In what sense?

Maybe I should write more about it on the AAR thread, or perhaps I should save it for the possible PDL AAR since whatever I write might affect my future games. But there's something weird going on when, like Jay wrote, in 6 D1 games there has been 4 solos. Perhaps it's the scoring system that has a small component of points per supply center that drives people to be more selfish, or perhaps it's having a few players in every game who more or less don't communicate at all (not in a meaningful way at least), but the games have been incredibly lopsided.

Not ranked may have something to do with it. People trying unorthodox moves. Many variables I spose.
