Well there's an overly prominent ftb in SEA, so Probably counter/use that with Malaysia, Scand seems good for a safe income but not much expansion choice, and S America and Antartica have some expansion options and a fairly safe place.

Probably:
1. Malaysia
2. Scand.
3. S. America
4. East China
5. Tibet
6. Ant.

(Take into account I'm not really good at 1v1, but trying to improve. Please tell me any flaws! >.<)

I think SA is better than antarctica because of the possible western africa combo

1 EChina, 2 SA, 3 Scan, 4 Ant, 5 SEA, 6 Wchina

EDIT: this sort of shows why it's better to not go 1st move in on the 1st turn. Yes he missed card piece but he had 4 stack advantage going into turn 2.

thanks for all the opinions so far :)

South America, Antarctica, east china, scandinavia, west china, west africa?


you could end up without a foot in the FTB, but in retrospect seems better then what i picked

Antarctica, South America, East China, West China, Scandinavia, Central Russia


seems legit

I think SA is better than antarctica because of the possible western africa combo


considering you will have to storm SA from antartica anyways, i think it's better to have antartica, you can keep storming into africa and break it (or finish SA) if he has gone for the combo there.

SA, Ant, WC, Scand, CR, 6th pick unlikely. Maybe ER


seems like the best option in retrospect

1 EChina, 2 SA, 3 Scan, 4 Ant, 5 SEA, 6 Wchina


i think you would end up without any pick in SA (very likely opponent picks 1 2 there)

hedja: yeah i didn't like that outcome much, almost wish i hadn't gotten first action. wonder if 0% SR would have made it worse, better or pretty much the same. anyone has opinions on that btw?

0% SR you have 7 troops there if you moved in first, he hits with 8, 8 kills 5, 7 kills 5, he has 1 more army but you have territory. That can't be right, luck got you so bad though, 3 stack swing in the other way... Can someone else think about the numbers?

If I don't get a foot in SA I have 2 around FTB + safe scan. You were the only person to pick cauc, so assume I get SEA + Echina + scan vs ant, SA, wchina (the most likely from what everyone said) I can clear wchina before he gets SA, so i end up with asia and scan and he has samerica with worse expansion in the long term no?

you're assuming you'll be able to wipe your opponent's counter from Asia while having only Scandinavia (without any decent expansion possibilities) and 2 picks in SEA? While they have a combo in SA providing sustainable income and minimum expansion, i don't think you would manage to pull off a wipe out from asia. Unless you managed to actually get SEA without being countered. I don't think that's very likely to happen against a skilled player.

@hedja, if your opponent full deploys to Tibet and takes Argentina with 3v2s from both Siple and Brazil, I don't see how you ever clear Asia.

1= SEA
2= EC
3= AA
4= Indo
5= W Af.
6= SA

I picked this because I'd have liked to get the FTB and if that failed I'd have possibly had the counter and a safe-spot with decent expansion possibilities. Please, feel free to criticize these picks.

Just to emphasize my point about skill level, this game started right after I saw this thread.

https://www.warlight.net/MultiPlayer?GameID=9701106

Same FTB, fewer counters, doesn't get 1-2 picked.

Its an unconventional late counter to ANT+unexpected+ you should get to Ant before the opponent does this way you counter him, and take your bonus at the same time (in an ideal situation ofc). Also going for SA and Ant is a bit too reliant on luck and pick order based: my picks are a lot less luck based, except for the EC one.

Show up on SA's doorstep turn 4 while opponent tiptoes around Asia looking for you. Your opponent would not have expected it :)
