12 Jun 14 UTC End-of-game statement:
Congratulations to Ukraine for a well-played game, and I would like to thank everyone for playing! First of all, I really want to apologize to the player of Egypt--to be honest, I really feel bad about stabbing you since you helped me into Tunisia and Italy. It was a very tough choice because after I took southern Italy, the only two people who I could attack (France and Egypt) had both been helpful so far. In hindsight it probably would have been a good idea to de-escalate in North Africa like Egypt had suggested, but I did not see Egypt's message calling for a cease-fire until after the build phase of 1999 was over, when I had built an army in Morocco. Also, I was reluctant to stab France, who had respected all of our mutual agreements so far, especially without an immediate commitment from Poland. For this reason, I must share some of the blame for causing Egypt to go AFK, which significantly influenced the outcome of the game.

I also regret that I did not inform Poland of the possibility of a Ukrainian stab. After Ukraine had made it clear that he was not interested in going after Egypt, it should have been a red flag that Poland would be the next target, but somehow I failed to inform Poland of this because it seemed so remote from my territory. On a positive note, I am glad that my relationship with France ended up working so well--I had expected to stab him earlier, but as the Ukrainian menace grew I realized that it would not be a wise decision to do so.

Also, this is random, but for the last turn I made a chart to compare my four possible defenses in Egypt with the four possible Ukrainian attacks, and I picked one that would hold against 75% of Ukrainian attacks. Of course, Ukraine managed to guess the right attack :P
12 Jun 14 UTC (Also, I am a bit disappointed that Russia did not cooperate with taking Sweden--it would have held off a Ukrainian victory by one turn. But then again it wouldn't have affected the outcome...)
12 Jun 14 UTC gg. And we almost held the Ukrainian empire off to!
12 Jun 14 UTC Well in fairness I cannot really take credit for the winning attack - I received significant advice that tipped the scale; thanks very much to that person :). I will also note that I was very hesitant to move against Poland initially, since he was both a good ally and a strong opponent, but ultimately it became an obvious campaign to wage. I also feel bad for stabs against Russia and Italy, who were reliable allies that I failed to save (although I think it would have been difficult to help them much more than I did). Finally, I would like to add that Spain and France were very good at halting (and in the case of Venice, reversing) my advances, and I will be more careful when playing with either of them in the future XD
