Thanks for doing all the work to set up and run this tournament Sinnybee!

I'll look over the new data and update my earlier post.

Sorry to sort-of disagree with you, but congratulations to everyone who secured a solo or a two-way or three-way draw in Phase 1 (those with a four-way draw and nothing else do not have a high enough score to reach Phase 2).
I don't think it can be accurately implied that it's harder to win with "Germany, Poland, and Turkey", especially as the 3 major powers currently have an average of just over 7 supply centers (each, per game) in the two remaining Phase 1 games, being 43 supply centers total between them, not including the minor power supply centers controlled by the players.

Nothing to be sorry for. I sort of agree with you but I can't congratulate everyone when I'm one of the everyone.

True. the sample size is too small and too restricted to draw any credible conclusions. There was some discussion in one of my AARs about the relative advantages of different major powers and that is why I looked through the game results - to see if there were potential trends worth reporting. Before I included those last two games I thought there might be since Poland in particular lagged far behind the rest with only three wins. Germany had four and Turkey had five. But Poland was a winner in both of the last two and Germany won in one of them, so the last three all evened out to five.
