10 Sep 17 UTC good game all!
10 Sep 17 UTC Ding, spring 1903 move on France by Italy is an error, as Italy, especially in gunboat, NEVER move on France until Turkey is dead.

did you like my bounce to block his retreat in fall of 1912? I thought it was cool

spring 1915 convoy and destruction of Apulia was the end though...
10 Sep 17 UTC And France refused to help set up the lines...
10 Sep 17 UTC Good game Tugster. I knew Turkey was you haha. Agreed re move on France. I did so because he seemed to be new given his move to North Africa.
10 Sep 17 UTC Yes 1912 we worked so well together haha
10 Sep 17 UTC Hi France, I see that you joined the site in July. A couple of tips for you if I could please:

1. When a power is close to reaching 18, then you need to help other minor powers setup a defence line to force a draw, instead of continuing to grab supplies. When you continued to go for Marseilles and failed to fight Turkey at all, I knew I could not get a draw and the game became a survival rather than draw for me.
2. Going for Italy at the start is not a very good idea. I went for you straight after as your move to NA told me that you are probably new to this game - not a good move by me either though!
10 Sep 17 UTC when did you think it was me?
10 Sep 17 UTC true, France, moving to North Africa only serves one purpose, to anger Italy, but no reason. NEVER go for Italy, as France, especially in Gunboat, until AFTER England and Germany are neutralized.
10 Sep 17 UTC the north Africa move, might have a misclick, should have been Portugal...
10 Sep 17 UTC When you started to patiently let France, Russia and I fight and gain SCs slowly to be in the best solo position I think. This game started ages ago and it was only mid game that I knew of your strong gunboat skills (when you won other games that I was in)
10 Sep 17 UTC And of course France, when this game started I was quite noob too...I learnt by playing 13-15 games at the same time since then..
10 Sep 17 UTC the France Russia fight was an epic mess, with no defined fronts, and as the fight was on Russia home soil, his build locations were blocked, so I started to kill Russian units instead of SC, as he had no place to rebuild them. France kept taking advantage which was fine by me.
10 Sep 17 UTC Thanks for the advice Ding5663. I think I've gotten better since then! Btw, N. Africa move wasn't misclick, just me being stupid.
11 Sep 17 UTC @tugster yeah killing off units was a very good tactic.
@BadSenator: no worries my friend! Good game!
