Meanwhile we reached quarters in Guiromahttps://www.warzone.com/MultiPlayer?GameID=21800138
NL Philippe beats Bruce Yang
Picks : N picks 7 and not bad except for the 3rd, B clusters for real but he gets rewarded with a good start.
turn4 : Philippe decides to invest both in Egypt and in Greece. Moreover he takes Numidia instead of securing carthage. Game over
turn5 : Bruce do not exploit the advange but decides to park a couple army in Narbonensis and lose Carthage. Why use transfer only when you can send Caralis troops to suicide ? Game non over
turn6 : P has taken Egypt prevented Mauritania and has Greece to complete. Game quite over
turn8 : P wastes armies in south. Game even
turn9 : B is unlucky in Italy but gains Carthage. Bastard game
turn10 : B is lucky in Africa, now has bigger income. P keeps wasting armies in south. Karmic game.
turn11 : balanced game
turn13 : B critical error, Yes I know P usually suicides armies in south but B you had italy Egypt and Carthage why 25 in MAURITANIA ???!!! Game gone
turn14 : again P suicides armies in Italy. To be even B makes a small blockade in Caralis. Bad game
A blockade in Mauritania 2 turns before would have won him the game. https://www.warzone.com/MultiPlayer?GameID=21854027
Bluebrain beats KonamiCode
Picks : B picks 5 with no Thracia. he doesn't need Dacia ( uncontested ftb to win this game)
K has a bit of respect for the combo but prefers to downgrade his pick with UK at 1.
turn2 income 9vs5. B will get Egypt, K Greece, B decides to make some 1vs2 attacks.
turn3 K has taken Uk and Greece. B has more income but with a 1vs2 in Alexandria indicates B presence
turn4 K decides that alexandria is not interesting nor that northern border should merit some defence. Better to invest 6 in gaul that can be taken in just 2 turns.
turn5 Greece is lost, but the thing to see are FIVE 1vs1 attacks from both.
CONGRATULATION BlueBrain, the first clanless to make it to the semi-finals.
