25 Jun 17 UTC Great fucking job italy, are you happy now? this is not sum-of-squares scoring, in case you haven't noticed
25 Jun 17 UTC haha.
25 Jun 17 UTC well played, tugster! congratz!
25 Jun 17 UTC Even if a sum-of-squares scoring, the winner gets all credit, not just the sc's he captured. Let's review the flow of the game. I was trying to go for Austria, but you blocked me from doing that. You let Russia do whatever he wants. If I attack France, then Russia would have taken over the East long ago. There was only one way forward for me in this game, and that's to attack you. But you and Austria have proven to be difficult to deal with indeed. I'm not happy, but I don't see how I could have made a different move.
25 Jun 17 UTC are you kidding me? When I hit about 12, you had to completely WITHDRAW all your forces from Austria and Turkey, and let them retake what you had taken, then Austria and Turkey would have fought Russia, but no, you stubbornly kept attacking them.

Italy handed Russia the win, obvious to everyone except Italy
25 Jun 17 UTC incredibly poor play by Italy, unbelievably BAD, attacking Turkey even on the last move...
25 Jun 17 UTC you had to evacuate Austria and turkey, and give them back all your gains, then they would have used their new builds to fight me. So very obvious..
25 Jun 17 UTC they couldn't fight me, because you were attacking them. I was even helping them hold against you, for most of the game I was supporting their defense against YOU. You gave them no choice on what to do.
25 Jun 17 UTC 1907/1908, when it became obvious that I was going to overrun England, you needed to evacuate ALL areas against Turkey and Austria. I only had three armies on their norther border and they were still strong enough to push me back. I had 12 SC, and a weak front against Turkey and Austria. You convoy your forces BACK to Italy, give up all the SC you had taken from them and let Turkey and Austria build new units. You pull back to only Italy, eat a bunch of disbands and sit there in Italy and do nothing but watch Turkey and Austria drive into Russia. That is what I would have done as Italy.
25 Jun 17 UTC Spring of 1908, to be precise, you needed to pull back all forces from Austria and Turkey, but instead you took Serbia, while I pummeled England, the writing was on the wall... solo was assured from that point forward.
25 Jun 17 UTC Thank you Russia for saving me the explanation, totally agree with your analysis. I ain't mad, but Italy needs to understand that ne played awfully and it is totally his fault
25 Jun 17 UTC don't forget to give Germany some credit as well... he played poorly as well.

1904/1905 Really bad moves by Germany, he collapsed in very short order.

A Russian fleet in the med? From the West??? Seriously? Not France's fault, France got pinned down first by Germany, then by the Russian armies that took over Germany, and after I took England there was nothing France could do at that point but watch Russian fleets sail past on their way to the med. He is having support from Marseilles cut from Russia from GOL. No counter possible to that.
