30 Sep 17 UTC Historic British defense of rarely seen Italian invasion, eh? Guessed right like three times in a row... :)
30 Sep 17 UTC twice in a row rather

30 Sep 17 UTC Good game, that was fun.
30 Sep 17 UTC why did you draw Austria?
30 Sep 17 UTC i wonder the same thing, I would not have voted draw yet as Austria.
30 Sep 17 UTC Well, I figured I was bound to lose at least Greece this turn and I didn't see a breakthrough happening up north, so it didn't seem realistic to keep working for the solo.
30 Sep 17 UTC (I mean, let me know if I misread things. I still haven't played a ton of these).
30 Sep 17 UTC it's nearly impossible to solo as Austria without first eliminating completely, turkey. I would not have hit anyone else until AFTER turkey was totally dead.
30 Sep 17 UTC so immediately after you took Sevastopol, it's a mistake to go north towards stp, better to swing the corner via Armenia and kill turkey first.
30 Sep 17 UTC better still to have never fought Italy until AFTER turkey was dead.
30 Sep 17 UTC Yeah, hitting venice was a mistake. Even worse not giving it back. I was trying to make peace, but on the condition of getting benoce back
30 Sep 17 UTC Well there was a simple solution, Move sevastopol to armenia and you could have taken back bulgaria
30 Sep 17 UTC true, certainly go to Armenia and do not press in the impossible to take Stp.
30 Sep 17 UTC Another thing: It is very rare for Italy to be able to launch attacks on England, and it's sort of a dream fun thing to do. Very likely Italy was enjoying it and looking forward to taking England and even Scan, why? Because it's fun. Given that, you likely could have ignored Italy totally, and he would not have stabbed you, at least not for a long while down the road.
30 Sep 17 UTC It is even possible that Italian and Austrian forces would have met in Scan! wouldn't that have been a sight to see? I bet that Italy had thought of that.
01 Oct 17 UTC i doubt it becuase Italy had only one fleet in the English Channel (which i admit is rarer becuase most English players wouldnt allow Italy to get that far) but its not like he would have ever been able to make it to Norway or edi
01 Oct 17 UTC If austria and Germany had left me alone I would had loved to venture into Scand
01 Oct 17 UTC I made two very good guesses for two turns in a row, and had I guessed wrong, England would have been conquered by Italy. If not fr that, and for Austria's shift when he did, yes, indeed, we would have seen an Italian naval overrun of England and yes, even Scan.
18 Oct 17 UTC guys, we need five more people for this huge EPIC game of OPEN PRESS World Dip, will be hilarious fun!
