I think what Cal means is more along this line. The power of one.

but i think putting them so close together is not a good idea, they are easily killed by an nuclear bomb + if they surface and one is destroyed the others are likely to die in the blast as well

My picture wasn't intended to illustrate intelligent deployments. I can think of situations where putting 12 subs in the Bay of Caribexico is a good idea, or a bad one. I'm not looking for that discussion.

The point was to illustrate that where 6 subs cannot go, 1 might be able to.

Notice I never disputed the point that a fleet of 1 can go where a fleet of 6 can't. I was pointing out that Radiant Caligula's statement of' "And no way u can jam 6 subs inside the Caribbean." is in fact not true. However, getting a fleet of 6 subs in the Gulf of Mexico is different matter. :P

yeah, sorry for not checking before claiming that. But I'm confident there are several places 6subs cant go. Gonna post my findings soon.

Well, I think this school is working. I played a 5 player game this morning before heading off to work (gotta love being 5 min from couch to desk) and while NICEGUY isn't new (he won), another player who stated this (general area of the forums) has helped with his strategy/technique. He came second. I came in third. :(

I made several minor mistakes.

By the way, I'll be available in a couple of hours to play if anyones interested or if anyone still needs to finish a duel with me and can. Only have time for one game though..

I'm available. So maybe I'll join you.

Will you create a game or simply join a pre-existent one?
