Supremacy 1914: Campaign Diaries - Day 89
I have the feeling that this is going to be the last day. After after today, the world will be mine - "technically".
To be honest, this game has really gone on for a long time. I don't know how long the longest game ever has been, but this one is close to it I suspect.
Let's get into it, and I can tell you my theory as to why this game has lasted.
I suspect the reason this game has been going on so long is because there have been new players joining, and old ones leaving. The timing has been quite quick, too. Which of course means, the AI hasn't been in control long. AI is always a target for many reasons. The main one is that it does not hold grudges and does not have the power of deception - for defense or for attack.
The US and Poland are really going at it. They both have captured land - and of course, that means, lost land. I cannot say who the victor in this war might be. If they made peace and hit me with everything they have got, they could stop me from winning. But they wont.
Poland has 300 odd troops sailing to the US. The US is pretty much undefended so.. they will take land in the US. This is meaningless really as I sit on 995 points.. 5 Points, and I win. I have taken three or for pieces of land in the last day and lost none. I should only gain points and the US and Poland's points will just shift between each other.
I suspect that I will have to stay at 1000 points for a day though and the game will notify the other players of this. Day 90 will no doubt be a bloody day if this is true.
The US seems set on sending ALL of it's troops overseas.. Still!
They have also contacted me asking for weapons. Mainly a railgun that would only do minimal damage to Poland - mainly due to there being no troops there - and would not be able to capture any land and I would see it destroyed. So I said "no, sorry"
If it would have done a lot of damaged. I would have said, "sure thing, Bud!"
As you can see, I have a fair amount of land. Sounds good, eh?
Well, it sort of is. But it makes me a target as I have to cover all borders. I also have to make sure resources balance. People want all resources regardless of what they produce in their province.
Let us see how tomorrow plays out and perhaps, this will be the last day!
