10 Aug 16 UTC GG everyone.

Obviously there were two CD's which made the game a little sour.
The Germany CD helped me.
The Austria CD hurt me.

I truly think I'd win the game if neither happened. If only the Germany one, even more so. If only the Austrian one, maybe not assuming perfect play on ALL your guys parts (Italy/Turkey were SO out of position, and with not being able to communicate about the MED that was basically always lost. Combine that with the suspect and often revengeful play from EGR and I don't think that's a particularly probable assumption.). Between that and already investing so much time and the SOS scoring I decided to play it till the solo. I hope you don't hold it against me.

Thanks for the game!

10 Aug 16 UTC I dont. I think thats a valuable assessment. Once Russia turned bak towards his homeland I knew we had lost what little hope we had for forcing a draw.
10 Aug 16 UTC Austrias CD helped you in some ways. Austria was around long enough to keep Italy and I occupied and not expanding. Which made it nearly impossible for us to push back on you when you turned our direction.
10 Aug 16 UTC 2nd game and i feel lucky to have survived looking at your scores lol
10 Aug 16 UTC I turned back because Valis had the 18. Without fleets, StP falls. the rest was just time.
10 Aug 16 UTC Yeah, it makes sense. That and we had been going back and forth.
10 Aug 16 UTC I shouldn't have trusted you.
