I attacked 3 of his weak spots and a weak player followed by eliminating him from a section of the map. Exactly what I wanted. You can't see this at Das Chloss as an example cause the armies at any section hardly matter. Even more if it's Freestyle. At this mode the armies have no importance at all.
Yeah this is something that a lot of cooks do, they don't pay attention to how many regions an opponent has, or his locations, and will often hand free cards to another player by attacking a weak player (weak as in, low territory/army count) and making it so that someone else can eliminate them, such as taking them out of one part of the map, so that someone on the other side can finish them off and get the cards. You need to try to position yourself so that YOU are the player that gets the free cards, rather than one of your main opponents.
So if you are near a player that only has a couple territories left, but may be spread out, then you need to try to isolate that player from any cooks so that they cannot attack him and send the cards to one of your other opponents. Then you just wait patiently for someone on the other side of the board (most likely another cook) to kill them off over there so you can go for the elimination.
Or if there are no cooks on the other side, make a truce with the now isolated weak player and then just keep the cook on your side away from him so that they can fight on the other side and hopefully provoke someone to eliminate them so you can finish them off.
Basically, just pay attention to cooks around weakened players, because chances are they are going to set someone up for free cards, so it might as well be you!
