Unfortunately this is false. Very false.

I am not aware of a stalemate line that will stop a group at 18. I know of some smaller ones - such as around the Black Sea... Has my memory gotten so fuzzy that I’ve completely forgotten one?

Mos-Ukr-Gal-Boh-Tyr-Pie-GoL-Wes-NAf can stalemate 16 centers from the south against a coalition that holds 18.

Replace Mos with Sev, and it stalemates 15 against 19.

There are smaller ones that can stalemate northern centers against coalitions that can't get fleets out of the Med (based around Por and MAO). Some are as small as 4 centers. Basically there are TONS of positions like that, where a coalition of greater than 18 centers literally can't kill someone off.
