That West China triple pick hurt. I lost the game turn 3 for all intents and purposes. I did eventually turn it into a lengthy comeback that resulted in me winning in 20 turns, but I really wouldn't say I won the game so much as he threw away his winning position, I had no chance after turn 3 unless he allowed me to win.
My question therefore is what other people would have done differently turns 1-3 to avoid that situation. I don't really feel I made any blatant mistakes.
Turn 1 was a wrong guess, but I don't believe it was the wrong move. The ftb was more likely to be picked than what he did have, so countering it seems sane.
Turn 2 was obviously perfect given how I played turn 1.
Turn 3 is trickier. In hindsight, I could have won the game after turn 3 if I'd rearranged my orders and added 1 more delay, but I'm not sure that either of those moves would have been the "right" move. The delay seemed unoptimal incase I could attack Greenland turn 4.
Flipping my last two orders is questionable as well because there was a decent chance he could have been in West Africa.
Past turn 3 hardly interests me, it's just me making lemonade out of lemons. I'd prefer to not get stuck with lemons rather than perfect my lemonade making skills.
