12 Apr 16 UTC Well done to Russia for handing the game to Italy. Nicely done.
12 Apr 16 UTC Very good game from Germany and Italy. Congratulations to masters66.
12 Apr 16 UTC England. You do realize that you won nothing right? You know that if we ended in a draw you would have received a portion of the pot.
12 Apr 16 UTC Do you understand why I left Belgium and Holland? Why I didn't protect Denmark with three armies?
12 Apr 16 UTC All that was to stop Italy from getting Warsaw, Munich or Moscow. FORCING A DRAW! Please learn how to play this game correctly.
13 Apr 16 UTC Come on Germany. I saw your Intention but it was too late. Italy won because I was no match for him in Spain. And I couldn't focus on him because you were giving me a hard time. So Italy won.
13 Apr 16 UTC No it was not too late. Go back and look at the Spring 1913 Map. I moved out of Holland, Belgium and into Prussia, Munich and Silesia. I even sent out support hold order to the North Sea in the Autumn of 1912 and Spring of 1913. If you read the orders and read my moves on the board, my intentions were obvious.

Now with an army in Livonia and an army in Prussia, Italy cannot take Warsaw or Moscow. Italy would not have been able to take Munich either because I had 3 armies protecting it. That's called a standstill. The only way Italy could have gained more centers would be from the Mid Atlantic Ocean. That was your job! You needed to move your fleets westward to create a standstill in MAO. Instead you stupidly took Denmark then Sweden and walked into Holland and Belgium. If you would have created a standstill out West the game would have ended in a draw and you would have won ~ 60 points. Please understand this or don't play non chat games because clearly you don't know how to play.
13 Apr 16 UTC Yes Master Yoda. And good luck in your next games!
13 Apr 16 UTC I agree with Germany, not that I'm complaining (obviously) but when I saw Ger had to destroy the armies in the East I knew I could get Moscow and I outnumbered you in Spain. I probably would have had to draw had you not taken all those German SCs.

GG all
13 Apr 16 UTC Thank you Italy. You took advantage of horrible play by England (as would I) and won it all. Good win.

England-Perhaps gameplay like this is why you have only 22 points. Take this opportunity to improve your gameplay and understand the how the scoring system works.

Cheers all.
