12 Nov 13 UTC I wasn’t gonna do it… wasn’t gonna take over the Power… but then the feeling was on me. Tendmotivation. I had to get in there. You have no idea. PIECE NOW. My merciless attack. Tendmote style. Get a piece at the peace conference. How can I not? Should them units lie fallow? Or harvest Austria for no reason? Answer: harvest. Check me out. Check it.
12 Nov 13 UTC GG guys. Sorry Italy. I usually don't stab but you were too committed west to resist.
12 Nov 13 UTC England you could have forced the draw if you would have put in army in st. Pete during 1908. Fail...
12 Nov 13 UTC Yeah I was expecting to see a northern army to pressure me. None came, so I pressed on.
12 Nov 13 UTC You're an asshole Austria
12 Nov 13 UTC Why?
12 Nov 13 UTC Because you could have won the game without a stab
12 Nov 13 UTC I could? How? You miscalculated dude. You left nobody home protecting yourself.
12 Nov 13 UTC It happens, we've all done it.
12 Nov 13 UTC If England would've been smart, then I wouldn't have joined. But England failed and I was bored so I joined. At the point in the game where I joined in, there was no chance of stopping Austria. I just hastened the inevitable. I don't mind another survive in my stats.
12 Nov 13 UTC Don't be mad Italy.
12 Nov 13 UTC how is this loss going to be but on me? and this game shouldnt even have made it this far but austria wanted points
12 Nov 13 UTC Yeah, I agree with England. Gunboat should end with 3-4 way draws after a few powers fall.
12 Nov 13 UTC Why? I wasn't even close to the CD ... Italy didn't vote to end the game either and he was a major beneficiary of France not show ing up.
12 Nov 13 UTC Nobody ever draws when I'm the one getting screwed. Turkey quit when surrounded and Russia similarly quit after taking losses
12 Nov 13 UTC The power once removed from the CD benefits a lot. So don't give me that bullshit. The game was pretty even. The balance wasn't that bad, except that Austria didn't die in 1903.
12 Nov 13 UTC Yeah, the Turkey and Russia CDs were bad form by those guys. That's not on you.
12 Nov 13 UTC Austria was horribly exposed in northern Russia. If you would have convoyed one or two armies to St. Petersburg at anytime even up to 1908, you would have punched a huge hole in his borders and probably made him draw the game. Because you failed to do this however, yes the loss is on you...
12 Nov 13 UTC To England ^
12 Nov 13 UTC If Italy would have hit draw or cancel early I would have. I seem to remember England didn't either. Both wanted the easy advantage. I got none of that
12 Nov 13 UTC To some extent, I agree with France. England needed to get more armies on the mainland when he saw that Austria stabbed me.
12 Nov 13 UTC You got a peaceful Italy that didn't hit you in 1902
12 Nov 13 UTC In retrospect, my biggest mistake given the greed
12 Nov 13 UTC You did nothing wrong Austria, gg.
12 Nov 13 UTC Yep. You went whole hog toward the easy SCs France left. I was content to have peace and you were too. When you had no defense though and I was handling Russia and turkey quit, you were easy pickins and I knew you couldn't fight back effectively
12 Nov 13 UTC i took one french sc because i had germany and russia gunning for me and i had my draw vote up the entire time so dont give me any of this
12 Nov 13 UTC Short memory man. You hit me when I engaged England. France was already down.
