29 Sep 17 UTC Thanks for the Draw. That was unexpected facing the JUG.
29 Sep 17 UTC No problem. As soon I noticed that effectively we were the only ones still playing and everyone else had the draw vote on, I stopped as there no point to continue just for another 6 points.
29 Sep 17 UTC I was playing, to stop a Turkish solo. it worked also.
29 Sep 17 UTC :-)
29 Sep 17 UTC France you should SUPPORT Tys in this situation, NOT take Tunis...
29 Sep 17 UTC Support Italy's defenses, instead of poaching his SC.
29 Sep 17 UTC Fro that mater France your 1901 build and attack on Italy is a big mistake, he was set up to Lepanto. and would have, the only reason we had a dangerous turkey is because you attacked Italy early in the game, it is always a big mistake.
29 Sep 17 UTC @Germany- Cool, thanks for the lecture.
29 Sep 17 UTC You're welcome, you need more my friend. Early attacks on Italy by France have about a 95% failure rate. It's just a fact, and it almost always leads to an overly powerful turkey, nearly every time.

You did escape the Ruhr trap in 1903 with a fighting retreat, so there's hope you can learn!
29 Sep 17 UTC Lol, love the lecturing sessions! Germany, you are absolutely spot on and I would have given everything to Turkey to spite France had this not drawn. Hope we all can meet in another game!
29 Sep 17 UTC To be honest I never really saw the solo emerging as there was not enough chaos elsewhere. I was planning to have a little test run with paths around Switzerland, but the draw vote was only a matter of time
29 Sep 17 UTC Unfortunately, with Germany, France and England cooperating, I couldn't get any more SCs without attacking Turkey. SInce he could have held France at bay with his fleets, he could have built two more armies from Italian SCs and rolled me up through Armenia. 6 way draws suck, but you can't do much without active allies.
29 Sep 17 UTC At least no one is lecturing me ...
29 Sep 17 UTC I'm just surprised it went to a draw so fast, but once Germany gave up in '04, there wasn't much traction to be had.
30 Sep 17 UTC Yeh a 6 draw is unusual, but once we got together we actually had 18 units against your 16
30 Sep 17 UTC gave up? Show me any viable attack path in 1904. There were none other than for something else to break somewhere else.
30 Sep 17 UTC Agreed, Ger did not give up
30 Sep 17 UTC You voluntarily gave up the North Sea to set up a draw defense in 1903. Ger, Eng and Fra basically never left their 1901 build positions, and set up a stalemate line. I'm not disputing that it worked, I just don't get the mindset that makes someone play for a draw starting in 1903, much less three all at the same time.
