22 Feb 18 UTC Thank you England. I was gonna be a little upset haha. Very classy move of you.
22 Feb 18 UTC I was really upset at France, but it turns out it was just his first game :/. Sorry man, that couldn't have been a fun first game.

For future reference, etiquette is that you cancel the game if something like that happens (2 players being afk from the beginning).
22 Feb 18 UTC Sorry to make you nervous Turkey, I just wanted to wait two phases after Austria went afk so that he wouldn't end up included in the draw.
22 Feb 18 UTC Yeah. I submitted draw once those player CD'd. I figured at least get a few points from their lack of consideration.
22 Feb 18 UTC Understandable. Honestly, you should have solo'd the turn before this while Austria was still playing. You might have only been at 17, but you should have been able to take Tunis last year.
22 Feb 18 UTC I was disappointed with Austria's ability to help me set up a proper stalemate. I guess he didn't want to look like he was stabbing me by moving through Naples, but I needed him to support hold Tyr with his fleet.
22 Feb 18 UTC Heh, the 5-minute phases were making me really nervous. I was afraid that you'd just outguess me forever in the south, but I considered Austria a worse player and decided to just throw armies at him until he made a mistake.
22 Feb 18 UTC Yup. Apulia to Naples was what was sounding alarm bells in my head.
22 Feb 18 UTC Yeah. I'm guessing that's the case. No offense Austria. You played well early in the Balkans. However, it soon became clear that we needed to set aside hostilities and stop the English solo. You didn't position your armies fast enough/well enough.

I recommend you read up on stalemate lines to improve your play. That should be the primary thing on your mind from start to finish. How do I set up a stalemate line if in a losing position, how do I break through a stalemate line if in a winning position.
22 Feb 18 UTC Imo Spring '07, you should have cut Tun support from NA and move West Med or GoL to Tyr with Spain trailing them. You didn't need to get into Pie.

And Austria should have taken Munich in Spring '07. When that didn't happen, the game was over.
22 Feb 18 UTC Fuck.
22 Feb 18 UTC Is that you Condescension? I have trouble telling the difference between Austria and Germany's colors in the messages sometimes.
22 Feb 18 UTC Indeed
22 Feb 18 UTC Lol I was surprised to see you in the immediate NMRers. I don't know you, really, just have seen you around on the forum
22 Feb 18 UTC I forgot I joined and started playing Stellaris.
22 Feb 18 UTC Lol well you missed a real thriller as you can tell...
