29 Jan 16 UTC I am sorry France. I know there must be something terrible going on in your life. Is your dog dying of cancer? Did you favorite lawn mower break? Perhaps you just saw Lassie for the first time and are just a wreck. I know, that movie is tough. Orrr…puberty? Hmm. I am very sympathetic. There must be an INCREDIBLE explanation for how you are feeling right now. Please tell me, I would honestly love to hear it. Because otherwise, there really is no possible way to explain the ASTRONOMICALLY MIND-BLOWING BEHEMOTH AMOUNT OF STUPIDITY WAFTING FROM THE FRENCH SIDE OF THE BOARD RIGHT NOW. I have no words. I gave you every possible chance. Literally every one I could give. The part of me that has hope for humanity needs a spa day right now.
29 Jan 16 UTC Turkey: Good job. You successfully capitalized on stupidity. Can't fault you there, with competition like we were, you deserve it. Thanks France.
29 Jan 16 UTC Gg Turkey. Germany chill out.
29 Jan 16 UTC France, if you are willing to hear it: I see now that you haven't played many games and are likely new to the game. Apologies for naturally assuming stupidity where it was likely just inexperience. The reason I am frustrated is because we had a draw locked up for sure against Turkey. He was clearly in the best position to win if we stopped working together.
29 Jan 16 UTC And then, there were multiple points after that where I tried to give you the chance to stop attacking me so that we could regain position and stop him, but you weren't willing to take them. It is a little silly to turn on the 'Draw' button while actively helping someone else win.
29 Jan 16 UTC Finally, I understand you wanted to stab me, but it might help to look at some stabs from really good players (like The Czech). It is still an element of the game I am terrible at, but I have learned when NOT to stab (ie when it will give someone else the win). Best of luck.
29 Jan 16 UTC so the unholy alliance of france and germany did break down eventually... you guys really kicked my ass, i was impressed by how long you kept going together
