A/T and I/T aren’t two way draw alliances, but they can still be strong alliances. They’re 3 way or solo alliances, high risk/high reward in other words. That doesn’t make them bad or weak alliances, it just means they’re going to be more suited to players that are OK with high risk/high reward alliances rather than safer options with higher floors but often lower ceilings.

True. I have never seen a G/R alliance.

It's actually more impossible imo


Check out 158599.

A very successful G/R, imo...

G/R can work together very effectively against England, and then Germany circles around to kill France while Russia pushes southward. It's definitely awkward long-term, but neither really *NEEDS* the other to be dead in order to prosper. Toss in Italy 3rd wheel and they can carve the board up pretty easily, all the more so if they're not obvious about it for a little while.
