15 Jan 17 UTC Moderator: (bo_sox48): Germany, if you have a plan to solo this game, please PM it to me. If you do not have one, games in a stalemate for 2+ years are required to be drawn. Waiting for other players to drop out or quit the game is not a reason to continue. If you do not have a plan, please draw.
15 Jan 17 UTC Thanks mod
gg folks
15 Jan 17 UTC gg, great play Italy
15 Jan 17 UTC It was impressive coordination by all of you without messaging!
15 Jan 17 UTC I watched the match from the beginning, was a good match to spectate. well played all
15 Jan 17 UTC I kept thinking one of you would turn on the others--especially when Austria starting moving his fleets west.
15 Jan 17 UTC yeah thought that might come over as bad ;) just not much they could have done about it
15 Jan 17 UTC Yes at that point I also thought Austria was going to eliminate Italy, which would have been a great shame, since he was basically the one setting the stalemate in place by consistently supporting me, even though I was stealing some of his stuff at his home
15 Jan 17 UTC I kept thinking one of you would turn on the others--especially when Austria starting moving his fleets west.
15 Jan 17 UTC messaging would have been handy, I figured during this last round that it would be tactical to get Napels into Tunis. Only took four rounds to figure that out
15 Jan 17 UTC Yes, it was a very fragile alliance--at least without messaging.
15 Jan 17 UTC Yes I actually think that if you would have figured that out a few rounds sooner, we could have broken the stalemate, since germany's fleets were far away
15 Jan 17 UTC I'm sorry I came a bit late and left early, but at least my early departure didn't ruin the resistance or anything.
15 Jan 17 UTC Without messaging it's just so hard, you just keep doing the same stuff over and over until you get support :)
15 Jan 17 UTC yeah my bad. would have gotten it the next round ;)
15 Jan 17 UTC I hoped my support from naples into tyrrhenian gave you a hint, that you should let him pass ;)
15 Jan 17 UTC but yeah, it's almost impossible to coordinate well
15 Jan 17 UTC And it's not like we could have eliminated Germany completely :)
15 Jan 17 UTC I just want to know what you were thinking with
a) holding when I was cutting support from StP
b) supporting yourself instead of moving to Tuscany when I clearly desired to move to Tyrr
15 Jan 17 UTC my fleets were quit useless in hindsight
15 Jan 17 UTC I wasnt holding. I attacked but Germany defended Moscow from Warsaw.

And B was my mistake. Realized to late what was going on
15 Jan 17 UTC Yes, but you could have cut support from warsaw with galicia
15 Jan 17 UTC Though I think we couldn't have gotten further than moscow anyway
15 Jan 17 UTC Warsaw was being supported from Prussia. Or am I mistaken in that the support hold order would still be in effect when Warsaw itself was being supported?
15 Jan 17 UTC You are mistaken
Ah well, not a big deal. Good night guys
15 Jan 17 UTC Support is always cut when you attack that territory, no matter how much support it has
15 Jan 17 UTC good night
15 Jan 17 UTC another mistake on my account. I learn something every day. Thanks and good night
