    COD and Strategy <for fun>



      I have been a chess player for many years and its not an easy game nor is it for the weak. I tend to compare COD to chess in the following <inadvertently> it just happens and I wanted share some favorite quotes on these positions:

      1- Opening: The shortcoming of hanging pawns <cough rushers> is that they present a convenient target for attack. As the exchange of men proceeds, their potential strength lessens and during the endgame they turn out, as a rule, to be weak

      2- Middlegame: "Your only task in the opening is to reach a playable middlegame"

      3- Endgame:  Even in the heat of a middlegame battle the master still has to bear in mind the outlines of a possible future ending.

      Again, I post this for fun, just merely comparisons.
