18 Apr 15 UTC Sorry, I had to try ! I was going for the draw once Italy was out, but I did have to give it a try..
18 Apr 15 UTC I had no idea you were in the game Ham...
18 Apr 15 UTC MVP goes to Russia and Austria.
18 Apr 15 UTC Sorry, Italy, but after you didn't support Rome in Spring 1907, I had no choice but to abandon you - you broke our stalemate line. Sorry! :(
18 Apr 15 UTC And England, the next time you see EVERYONE voting Draw except the one player with 15 SCs, you should:

a) Check if it is WTA before you ignore him
b) Ensure you are not having a stroke (I was worried that was the case here)
c) If neither a or b, then attack the 15 SC player before he attacks you.
18 Apr 15 UTC Turkey, yes my mistake. I thought you were going to convoy with your build in Smyrna (why you didn't build in Ankara, for clarity, confused me) and that you might therefore need the support hold in Ionian.
18 Apr 15 UTC England was shocking me throughout the game. Why all the fleets stuck in the North East corner with nothing to do...
18 Apr 15 UTC Oh. I am sorry. :( I only put it there in case you did something silly and went back to attacking me. My apologies, bud. Also, sorry I scared you in Spring 06, I didn't have time to support hold you to show I meant no harm
18 Apr 15 UTC Austria Reliability Rating: 22%

Wow....
18 Apr 15 UTC But getting a draw too early is a drag -- if england had attacked me earlier, I would have vpted draw with more players. With them holding off, you got more points turkey..
18 Apr 15 UTC Russia: 38%...
18 Apr 15 UTC Yea, worked out in the end, but it was scary. All it would have taken was one miss-step (or England not guessing correctly about your move to IRI and it could have fallen apart.
18 Apr 15 UTC No worries at all.
I guess this is the nature of gunboats. I didn't expect much success from Italy anyway.

Fun playing with you all!
18 Apr 15 UTC Yeah, I was surprised Austria bailed so early. That was the only reason I had a shot at the solo
18 Apr 15 UTC I was surprised you even took advantage of Austria leaving like that, rather than drawing at that moment, especially after German abandoned the game to let you walk right through.
18 Apr 15 UTC I was waiting until Italy was dead. And =the game was very much open (except that Austria left).
