ModEx: Fall 2028 and farewell to Poland / Spain

Postby joe92 » 31 Oct 2016, 12:19

The gears of war are moving again. Germany takes no less than 5 centres, even with a few dodgy orders, while Egypt, Iran and W. Africa take one apiece. Meanwhile it seems like the smaller powers are setting up rebel encampments. Poland in the land-of-stolen-Mercedes Albania, Spain in the mountains of Andorra and Algeria on the beautiful island of Sardinia. Turkey outwits Iran and manages to hold Greece, but Italy finally loses his stalemate position with the German fleet in the Ligurian Sea cutting support. A couple of quick retreats needed.

Retreats:
Italy - 2

The new agreed 3/1/2 deadlines are now in affect. Retreats are due ASAP, no later than 24 hours from now, 05:00 EST / 10:00 GMT Tuesday 1st November

At this juncture 2 more players have been eliminated, Poland and Spain. Don Juan, you have shown in the opening game just how much potential Poland has. I genuinely thought back in 2018 you were going to make it to the end game, but the Italian stab proved fatal. Thank you for sticking it through to the very end, and being a reliable player! Likewise, Gnaah, you proved the same with Spain. A country with a low average of bids which similarly in 2023 I thought had a good chance of making it to the end. Losing the MAO however was a mistake that turned out to be impossible to recover from. Thank you for sticking it to the very end, and with the exception of one NMR, being a reliable player!

Thanks for the game Joe! It was really fun while it lasted. :)
Now that I've perished, and that its the thing to take islands, do you wanna color Iceland blue for me? :P
(Also, I'm just wondering, was Cyprus Nuked?)

I can't colour Iceland blue for you as you didn't make it that far! ;)

I thought about adding Cyprus as a territory much like the Balearic Islands but was left with a bit of a predicament as to which territory it should get recoloured with. Northern Cyprus is currently illegally occupied by Turkey. Turkey should have withdrawn troops after defeating the Greek coup on the island returning sovereignty back to those who had only just reclaimed it from the British 14 years prior, but instead moved over 100,000 Turkish citizens to settle on occupied Northern Cyprus. It's particularly bad that we British are not helping a former colonial territory while we retain two huge military bases there, even if only helping with a trade embargo against Turkey. I stand firmly on the side with the Cypriots in the ongoing struggle for reunification so don't want to recolour it with Adana or Antaly. It's too small to split into two on the map to show the ongoing struggle and it can't really be recoloured with Syria. So I left it out.

I could add Cyprus as a territory on the map. The territory encompassing the land and sea around it, with a border stretching from the middle of Antalya to the middle of Lebanon. It would create a buffer between Egypt and Turkey and would considerably influence the opening of the game. In fact, it would likely give Turkey more confidence in attacking Iran in the opening year which could be a good thing... Hmm, one to think about.

Well perhaps it could be colored in two, but still be impassable. I dunno....though, I think it would be cool if it were there.

Farewell indeed. It was a fun game while it lasted. I had a slow start followed by a great mid game with high hopes of being arounf when the game ends, but i failed to stab Germany at the right time and that cost me the game.

Lesson learned. Next time i am going to stab Asu as soon as i can reach him. If not earlier :twisted:
... and the crowd goes wild!

To be fair...this is the second game in a row I remember playing you that I had to stab you. The first one didn't work out much better for me...this one may though.
