Impaller Defeats BP.... yet again: 4/14/2011 20:01:08

I made Impaller promise that he wouldn't post another thread, but I'm reneging on my own pact. Surely this is embarrassing but I felt the need to reiterate to everyone what they already knew: Don't take anything for granted against this guy!

No need to point out my mistakes, turn 17 was a lazy mistake made in "real-time," my last order should have been my Hawaii attack and it wasn't. And yes, it cost me dearly. Turn 19, just a great play by him... but again, me trying to induce a surrender within a few turns instead of playing it safe, grinding out a victory, and controlling the chokepoints.

These mistakes I shall not repeat (yes, I've said this before but I really mean it this time). Anyway, point being, I deserve to give him more praise rather then shuffling the game under the rug as if it didn't exist.

Watch carefully and you can learn a lot from this game - I know I did.

As a closing statement, I look forward to the day where I finally close one of these. When that day occurs expect a long posting or perhaps a hiatus from the site so that I can publish a memoir, entitled "The day I exploited Impaller's Incompetence." A best seller to be sure. And if the demand is there, perhaps one can be included with each new membership package :)

Haha. I like posting the threads because our games are always really long and tough battles and generally quite good games. I think really good ladder games should be posted, regardless of the outcome.

I was pretty pleased with how I played in this one. With you knocking me out of Africa early and threatening my Scandinavia, I thought it was going to be a quick loss. To be honest, I'm still not sure exactly how it all changed in my favor. I think you may have been too preoccupied with expansion and not enough with ramming your armies into mine. Turn 17 definitely worked out in my favor. Turn 19 was the perfect scenario in East China, I couldn't ask for anything more there, and turn 21 was the point I realized I might actually have a shot at winning the game after I got back Scandinavia and West Russia.

I will write the forward for your book. I can include many more personalized stories of my incompetence :). Anyway, good game BP. Now if I can avoid playing you for a while so I don't have to go through yet another long grueling game :).
