japanj played a strong and honourable game, thanks for playing! Im not quite sure what happened with his final move, was he not quite able to gain Sami's Scop and not quite able to muster a defense at the hq you took?
I had taken many t-copter attacks, which helped put my power bar higher. For his last move he went all out and attacked me, but then maybe he simply realized that in doing so, I could use my SCOP? After my power bar was full, I don't think he could have defended the capital even if he had tried, while using his SCOP at the end of the turn. I could have destroyed an inf on his capital with 2 of my inf, or I could have destroyed an air unit with my fighter (and after the unit on the capital is destoryed, one of my inf captures it to win the game).
Rather than attacking me, he should have either retreated, or not attacked with his copters to try to stop me from using my SCOP, since I was so close to one of his capitals.
Just think about all the awful things that could happen if you were to stop worrying.
