The reason why I think the large USA ffa is impressive is because:
Currently, i'm also working on playing successful ffas. I find that your starting position is essential in winning. Since in this particular ffa, picks are manual. Thus the reason why warrior started all by him/herself is due to excellent picks. Picking is part of the strategy in winning. Also, Warrior made outstanding decisions when he/she eventually met the enemy, thus garanteeing the win.
Therefore, I think the win is very impressive indeed.
mitler's picks were better.. Imho, if he had realized about MA, it would of bent in his favor, difficult to tell though due to his lack of knowledge.
from what I can tell going through the turns *not watching each individually* he just went through capturing states.. the fact that other players there was a slight notice.. moving neutrals at best, in relative size..
t's not Impressive when a Goliath can defeat a David.. It's just embarrassing when the Goliath loses
