comment Catan: when to buy development cards?
You hit the nail on the head that you need a third settlement location. With 3 cities and largest army, your counting on drawing two victory points. With 5 development cards out of 25, your looking at having to buy an average of 10 development cards in order to pull those two victory points. (Fate would have to be against you not to have largest army at this point) Your turning ~30 resources into 4 victory points. Two build two more settlements and turn them into cities, is only 18 resources. Your resource diversity needed is less but the number of resources needed is more.

comment Catan: when to buy development cards?
I agree. Getting an early victory point card is nice, but I usually want something else then.

comment Catan: when to buy development cards?
Yes. I only focus on development cards early on cause they can only take you so far. If you focus on development cards to early, your going to be fall behind the other players and they'll get more resources then you in the late game. I'll buy a few in the early part of the game, but in the beginning more land is what I'm after.

comment Are general 3-to-1 or specific 2-to-1 ports better in Settlers of Catan?
I've noticed that myself.

@Powertieke I like Seafarers but I'm a big fan of the map diversity.
