25 Apr 16 UTC I am going to post an after action report on Reddit: https://www.reddit.com/r/diplomacy/comments/4gdnc0/roman_holiday2_webdiplomacy_aar_diplomatic_victory/

I would be psyched if you read it and even better responded. I will be rather frank with my motivations in the game and you might need to correct my misconceptions. I am in particular interested in what in the happened in the North West Corner early on. It seemed like there never ended up being an alliance with any of the three.
25 Apr 16 UTC I'll read it and might add in what i was thinking or atleast what i thought i was think
25 Apr 16 UTC I just finished the player summary and admit that my out of game communication is a little more critical than my in game communication. It is not flattering of anyone except Italy who was a perfect ally (though maybe could be criticized for not stabbing me when I stalled against Turkey... but I wouldn't criticize someone for not attacking me).
25 Apr 16 UTC Honestly I was going for the hit on France when I hit Marseille but realized I couldn't take you guys 2 v 1 especially with Germany not gone. My presence in the Balkans was just not strong enough. Got lucky that you guys let me backtrack
25 Apr 16 UTC Yah we pushed back harder than i thought we would. And by we I mean Germany and Russia
25 Apr 16 UTC Without someone to challenge you in the North I think a stab on you would've been very difficult to pull off. I was surprised by France's builds, not building a fleet in the Marseille when you could've was a mistake I think
25 Apr 16 UTC As it effectively meant France couldn't attack me
25 Apr 16 UTC By you I meant Russia
25 Apr 16 UTC I feel like I did misplay greatly in the beginning in turns of builds and moves. But I guess it seemed to work out in the end
25 Apr 16 UTC Perhaps i'll add a little to the reddit post but in the beginning of the game it wasn't so much as i lack a plan but more of there was a large lack of communication between Me and Germany and Me and Britain. As standard for play as france I wanted to choose one and pick on the other but I feel like i didn't completely follow through with that. This lead to me fighting Germany for Belgium and Burgundy for a year or 2 then promptly switching gears and taking advantage of Englands over extension. Now going back to that army build in Marseilles rather than a fleet build. I was under the belief that I was going to fight Germany and take central Europe. However, looking back on it. I think that build was my biggest blunder of the whole game as it let Italy mount a short but successful assault on to Mars and it also gave complete control of the Mediterranean to Italy.
25 Apr 16 UTC I'd love that put in the Reddit post, if you don't want to do it do you mind if I cut and paste it and add it as a comment from you?
25 Apr 16 UTC Oh go for it
I can't sign into my account at the moment so that would be cool
