26 Sep 13 UTC Cool, I won!
26 Sep 13 UTC Good job all!
26 Sep 13 UTC Russia - good game, congrats. France, England, good game as well. Mich, it's been a while, too bad it had to go this way....
26 Sep 13 UTC Michigan... man. I couldn't stop Russia because you blitzed me in the mid game.
26 Sep 13 UTC Russia - good game, congrats. France, England, good game as well. Mich, it's been a while, too bad it had to go this way....
26 Sep 13 UTC dang that was a long game
26 Sep 13 UTC Well that was a good game
26 Sep 13 UTC if only france/austria/italy werent fighting
26 Sep 13 UTC I tried to fight Russia... Italy fucked it up.
26 Sep 13 UTC Italy had the power in his hands that game, chose to spend his time fighting France, than me. That was a manageable stalemate squandered.
26 Sep 13 UTC Yes, I only won because Austria/Italy didn't focus me earlier on...
26 Sep 13 UTC exactly, that was verrrrrrrrry frusterating. I was happy france wisened up when he did
26 Sep 13 UTC Wait, Austria, attacking France was better than his other option: attacking you or Turkey who were fighting me.
26 Sep 13 UTC Wait, Austria, attacking France was better than his other option: attacking you or Turkey who were fighting me.
26 Sep 13 UTC Sorry, ditto.
26 Sep 13 UTC He should have focused on the Turkish front and pushing into Germany.
26 Sep 13 UTC I wish I hadn't missed Spring 1901. Got caught up in something else and when I realized I had joined this game it was already Autumn.
26 Sep 13 UTC I had nowhere to go, then pulled away.
26 Sep 13 UTC Right, I started versus AH, lost Trieste cuz my wifi went on and in NMRed, then turned west. Then, saw Russia winning and turned away. I stabbed Austria only cuz it was obviously over
26 Sep 13 UTC gotta say smart move by russia, to go with the 2 units north seeing germanys nmr. However, not exactly ethical...
26 Sep 13 UTC Neither was France refusing to vote to end the game -- of course not, he's the major beneficiary of Germany absence.
26 Sep 13 UTC yeam the game should have been drawed/canceled in the beginning
26 Sep 13 UTC I didn't attack Germany at all. I didn't put in votes because I saw not everyone else had votes in, and when I decided I would, Germany came back.
26 Sep 13 UTC Well, I'm no sore loser but I do think that since I CD'd (sorry about that) and there were a few occasions where other people missed turns that this game probably should have been a cancel.
26 Sep 13 UTC Ja, ja. Very borked game.
26 Sep 13 UTC In my defense, I was the first to put up "Draw," "Cancel" and had it up for three years. If anyone had wanted to stop the game, they could have done it then...
26 Sep 13 UTC Also, I made the mistake of fighting on non-traditional stalemate lines, which made it a enormous pain to defend.
26 Sep 13 UTC Also, @England, two north is a viable strategy. I was planning on using it even before Germany NMRed.
