09 Feb 14 UTC WTF was up with pulling the draw votes all of the sudden?
09 Feb 14 UTC One second I saw 4 other votes and I clicked mine, and when it went through both France and Austria had pulled their votes.
09 Feb 14 UTC Well we were hoping to make you pay for stabbing me.
09 Feb 14 UTC but then England stabbed France so we put them back up.
09 Feb 14 UTC Sorry dipper. Thought you were going for solo.
09 Feb 14 UTC At least thats what I interpreted it as.
09 Feb 14 UTC GG, all.
09 Feb 14 UTC The draw votes were up long after the stab.
09 Feb 14 UTC had fun, thanks.
09 Feb 14 UTC Chaqa if you hadn't stabbed me we would have at least gotten a 3-way draw, or you possibly could have gotten a solo. Terrible stab imo.
09 Feb 14 UTC Had to stab, otherwise grace would have marched over G. Was concerned that pulling the draw vote was because of the cd.
09 Feb 14 UTC I only stabbed you because you took Constantinople. That's clearly Italian territory in a Lepanto.
09 Feb 14 UTC My bad, I meant we took them down when France came for you Chaqa.
09 Feb 14 UTC Yea I was going to give it to you, but needed to get my fleet in to black sea against Russia.
09 Feb 14 UTC Yeah I interpreted it that France saw a CD and thought solo, especially with England weak and me committed to the east.

Initially I left my vote down because I was hoping Russia could be knocked out.
09 Feb 14 UTC Could have stabbed you in 02 and 03 when you had no defense on Venice besides a measly army.
09 Feb 14 UTC I wasn't going to solo, V. No chance. Besides, ready for bed.
09 Feb 14 UTC Overall I really did enjoy that game though.
09 Feb 14 UTC I thought Russia could be knocked out as well, but the German was random and never supporting other powers.
09 Feb 14 UTC Italy, first I wanted to make you draw. Then I thought I'd have a little fun. No big deal.
09 Feb 14 UTC My stab may not have been the most wise course of action.
09 Feb 14 UTC That fleet in the Black Sea is what saved you. Made me over-commit to Turkey.
09 Feb 14 UTC I don't know, you'd have picked up all German centers and had three build against my none if I had just sat back. Well played all and a good game, if an annoying ending.
09 Feb 14 UTC I thought you played great.
Same with Austria.
09 Feb 14 UTC Germany's CD is what threw everything off.
09 Feb 14 UTC Everyone, really, except G/T and me. I should have had Munich early and again later. But that damn forcefield kept me out, I guess.
09 Feb 14 UTC Thanks France, and thanks for coming in to stop Italy when you did.
09 Feb 14 UTC I had a feeling you were in this game, ccga. You messaging me over at vDip all night.
09 Feb 14 UTC niters.
09 Feb 14 UTC I was thrilled when Germany CD'd because france was going to get huge and crush you italy! ;)
09 Feb 14 UTC hey what can i say? Gotta do something inbetween turns ;)
09 Feb 14 UTC If the game had continued... you wouldn't be able to break my line in Turkey (ever) without another army in Armenia. With Russia coming down hard it seems like it's likely that wouldn't happen. And France withdrew, so I think I would have been okay. Until France came back at least.
09 Feb 14 UTC night France, well played
09 Feb 14 UTC I do hate eng in gunboat
09 Feb 14 UTC Well I was planning on a convoy to Armenia this turn actually. Wasn't sure about Russia, but I thought he was playing friendly since I was letting him take back his centers.
09 Feb 14 UTC I wouldn't think that. His moves to me were clearly "hey fuck you"
09 Feb 14 UTC woah virtuslex was in this game too? hey buddy!
09 Feb 14 UTC Well he avoided Sevastopol so idk.
09 Feb 14 UTC Anyway I've had CD in all games I've played this week. I'm getting sick of it.

We need that RR system.
09 Feb 14 UTC I would have suspected you to cover Sevastopol. I believed you would do Armenia->Smyrna and Black Sea->Sevastopol with Romania bouncing or SH Bulg.
09 Feb 14 UTC Agreed on rr system. And hi Ccga.
09 Feb 14 UTC gameID=135377
09 Feb 14 UTC If anyone's up for another. Strauss is in, I'll see who else I can get.
09 Feb 14 UTC Definitely agree on rr as well. Hows SOW going Virtuslex?
09 Feb 14 UTC Bed time for me!
09 Feb 14 UTC Oh yeah ccga, how's your TA role been in Gunboat SoW?
09 Feb 14 UTC Better then my TA role in the main SoW :P
09 Feb 14 UTC Hopefully my student does better than I did in this game though
09 Feb 14 UTC Good but had another kid so not as much time as I'd like.
09 Feb 14 UTC Woah congrats!!
