02 Jul 15 UTC GG. Well played Turkey.

France, why did you attack Kiel in Fall 1908? You let Turkey into Munich.
02 Jul 15 UTC Trust me, I have many questions about Italian's play in this game!!!
02 Jul 15 UTC France you might possibly be the worst player I've ever played with.

Turkey, nice win... at least it would have been if it weren't for the lucky cd from italy for you after he attacked me for no reason, completely ruining the balance of the game in your favor.
02 Jul 15 UTC Buggering off for a yer and a half didnt help lol
02 Jul 15 UTC Well played Turkey.
02 Jul 15 UTC Russia, I tried to make peace with you, I kept support holding your units as you walked into my sc. Please click the large map button each turn, in gunboats players often gives signs through support holds.
02 Jul 15 UTC Ask them. I feel I played solidly. You were the one taking all your units away from the statlemate line, delayed taking Liverpool in order to convoy onto the British Isles, and cut my support from Kiel.
02 Jul 15 UTC Nice compliment there Germany. And the issue was exactly?
02 Jul 15 UTC France you literally gave the game to Turkey.
02 Jul 15 UTC The Kiel move was an error, I agree. I just had to deal with the English fleets who came after me and left their backside open.
02 Jul 15 UTC It baffles me that you tried to attack Italy, your only hope at holding a stalemate line, and in the early stages of the game as I was supporting you and planing to work with you against England, you walked right into Holland. Then in the end game focuses so many units on the British Isles?? You do realize in a WTA game you don't get any more points from having more sc's?
02 Jul 15 UTC France you played solidly but stupidly and with stubborn ignorance.
02 Jul 15 UTC Even in the last phase, I had orderd support for Bur-Mun, which would have staltemated the game.

But no. Attacking Kiel is more important.
02 Jul 15 UTC I gave the game to Turkey? How so exactly, from your PoV? I hardly had any contact with Turkey.
02 Jul 15 UTC Attacking Italy and me at the same time as Turkey was on 14 SCs cruising to a solo is solidly stupid.

My draw vote was up and when you put yours up you should have started working with the rest of us to actually, you know, draw the game. Why on earth did you put a draw vote up otherwise?
02 Jul 15 UTC You threw the game by ruining my hold on Munich, which is where he got across the line.
02 Jul 15 UTC France you needed to look at the big picture. By not having any contact with Turkey you handed them the win. At a certain point you need to focus on stopping the solo than your own endeavours.
02 Jul 15 UTC Explain your rationale for your moves on Kiel.
02 Jul 15 UTC "I hardly had any contact with Turkey."

This is exactly why you gave the game to Turkey.

Because you were pointlessly trying to claim London while instead you should have been forming a line against Turkey in Italy.
02 Jul 15 UTC Also France/Turkey, not cool for not voting draw/cancel with italy's CD. Turkey, it makes your solo a lot less meaningfull :/
02 Jul 15 UTC Well I am still learning the 5 min game. I could have pressed draw but we play so many draws and I had some time so I thought we should play on.
02 Jul 15 UTC Turkey had draw up at one point.

Stubie, you have played quite a bit of gunboat, you should know to set up statlemate lines, lol.
02 Jul 15 UTC There was a point when it was just you who hadn't voted draw and it would have been a 6 way draw and the CD game would end. Instead, we all get nothing besides Turkey. You lost by now drawing when you could.
02 Jul 15 UTC This game was such a sh1t show I'm happy to have to survived till the end.
02 Jul 15 UTC I was wrong about Munich. Definitely a wrong move.
But how England can claim any sense of justice when he went for MAO instead of defending his Isles I do not know. Seems rather hyporcritical surely?
02 Jul 15 UTC I am sorry Germany that Italy came up from the South and then buggered off. I did not appreciate a new Italy showed up, and not the same old one. That is news to me.
02 Jul 15 UTC England was doing what I did - trying to get into a position to be crucial for the statlemate line. Portugal is incredibly important to holding the Med.

Just remember for future games -when there is a solo threat, stop him
02 Jul 15 UTC Well that is all very well Italy, but once in Portugal did he order a support?
02 Jul 15 UTC I understand that. But that takes teamwork. I need to learn how to do that when you cannot see supports that are cut.
