Thread: [Stainless Steel 6.4] SS All Factions 2

    Alright so there is kind of a problem from my perspective here...

    I can already make a move that would be very strong against Egypt... However they were subbed.. I do not doubt the skills from Cpt.Norway but subbing always is done less serious so idk how to feel about this.. Straight up not doing it would be very disadvantageous for me(tho ill look very carefully into it as it has obvious downsides)

    If someone is late and thus subbed/skipped, it's his fault and his faction might suffer. Similarly, a person could lack time, spend only 5 minutes on their turn and thus miss something and get beaten. Would you hold back in that case? IMO it's perfectly fine to fully use the situation to your advantage. And I'm saying it even though I don't wish you well (I don't want any faction to just grow powerful for free).

    Skipping and fast-subbing factions is bad (especially if someone is or might be at war) because it makes a hotseat unbalanced and less fun. The solution is that allies should sub (it's their interest, right?) and also we should try to get a new person quickly. If someone didn't even make alliances, it makes his fault even greater.

    To be honest the issue is that one should never sub the first turn. I have said this countless times and every time it happens this same scenario happens. When will people learn to listen

    Wouldnt feel bad about it if it was just cuz someone didnt play his turn without letting us know, but he did say this:

    I repeat what I said we need to go over who is active and who is not immediately and I agree its the own person's fault for not being up to the task to do their turn if they can't do it its their own fault but of course losing on purpose and not taking care of it is the whole hot seat's fault so yeah.

    Due to the turn being overall played really good I went for it anyway, not a mistake one would notice easily anyway lol.

    Sadly ill need an extension for pics, the turn took me several hours to do and I have a crazy amount of pics, here being the last half, still have more: https://drive.google.com/open?id=0By...XFscmE4bFJVeHM

    Basicly what I did was defeat multiple armies near Gaza, as Gaza was with a fullstack the armies kept retreating next to Gaza which allowed me to defeat the armies within Gaza several times aswell. Pics will be up tomorrow when sorted out...

    FYI, Egypt still has 3 fullstacks on my borders while I dont even reach 20 units total anymore. Yeah I got better units but its far from over.

    Yeah it puts me in a better position I guess but Egypt still seems heavily favored. Aside from that I feel like Greystark may have made a similair mistake . All recruitment was done well, siege weapons, spies, troops, ships.. Just the poor position of a few units screwed up one stack.

    There is no dishonor in taking the opportunities which are given to you, whether they come via the player or a subber. Admins tend to be experienced players also, so often I find that admins make better moves when subbing than the players would make themselves. Opponents must deal with that regularly, so IMO they shouldn't feel badly about taking advantage when maybe it swings the other way. Obviously, no guarantee that Greystark would have made better moves anyway.

    No, I got my free time now, those pics are about half of all the pics I need to sort out and place in the right order, will be on it now, was too much to do last night.

    Apologies for some of the numbers, due to the extreme amount of times of reloads I made so much pictures its too hard to get em all togheter, I am also missing one odds screen of I believe the 2nd battle in which the odds were 2:1.

    Most of these pics are the same battle but with different result, I basicly made a pic half the times I replayed so lots of pics are duplicates.
