22 Apr 14 UTC Sorry for joining the coalition too late, although I did get attacked...
22 Apr 14 UTC Words fail me. steephie22, you are a total moron.
22 Apr 14 UTC Well, I feel honored to have won this game, especially with the number of far more experienced players. Although, England did help me out a lot by distracting Germany.
22 Apr 14 UTC Tell me which "coalition" you joined? Did you join one in your imagination, you useless cunt.
22 Apr 14 UTC Good game, Turkey. Well played.
22 Apr 14 UTC Thank you, you played really well, and I got a little lazy around 1909 and stopped planning ahead and you caught me by surprise and even with England working against you, you still had me worried for a few phases that I might not break through but, England took to many SC's from you to hold me back. Also, Lando you played very well too, you executed the move onto the stalemate line perfectly and held me in check.
22 Apr 14 UTC congratulations sandyshu. I inherited the game in around 1908. I did everything to stop turkey, it did not work out.
22 Apr 14 UTC @Germany, like I said, I messed up, but you kept attacking me until 1910, and although I should have stopped right then, I only knew you stopped attacking me when it was too late...

I was also quite busy lately but that's a lame excuse.
22 Apr 14 UTC So, since I won this game does that mean that I am guaranteed a spot in the next round or do I have to win more than 1 game?
22 Apr 14 UTC Steeple fuck you. That was pathetic. Especially after maple made incredible moves to keep us alive by taking Warsaw. He played incredibly and you fucked us both and are acomplete moron. Fuck it sucks this can happen.
22 Apr 14 UTC @steephie22 - you know NOTHING. At the EXACT APPROPRIATE MOMENT, I worked for a stalemate line. You are an IDIOT.
22 Apr 14 UTC I want to thank steephie for helping me win because as Lando said maple defended against me beautifully but he didn't have enough units to hold me back once you started taking his SC's. Also, kudos to you too Lando, you moved against me at exactly the right moment too, the 2 of you almost single handedly stopped me from winning.
23 Apr 14 UTC Congrats sandy - you took advantage well. Had England been at all a reasonable player, however, I think we would have had you stopped. All he needed to do was order all holds. Instead, he acted moronically.
23 Apr 14 UTC At the point when he inexplicably deserted StP, I knew we were in trouble. To my exponentially increasing horror, every term that followed got worse. I continued to think, "he'll figure it out. He'll figure it out".
23 Apr 14 UTC Well, like I said, I completely admit I messed that up.
I do want to say though that if I did not make that effort to take my homeland again, I could just have been kicked out of the draw.

While Germany did stop in time to set up a stalemate line, he didn't guarantee my survival. I would have to hope he was merciful or Turkey wouldn't give him the space needed.
23 Apr 14 UTC No, plain wrong steephie. that is not how this game works.
23 Apr 14 UTC steephie22, you had StP and fleets to hold it. I couldn't risk knocking you out of there because THEN you could have reasonably thrown the game to Turkey. I took Hol and Bel from France because I determined that France could hold the southwest with one of my fleets helping, and WE needed two more German armies to hold the center. Have you read any complaints from Lando about this, either here or in the Forum?
