03 Jun 18 UTC Gg. I did not realize England put up draw. Was hoping my draw vote would get Russia to move north.
03 Jun 18 UTC Wow, I am very lucky. Thanks guys!

I wasn't moving north until you moved west first though.

Not sure why England was voting to draw, but I'll take it :)
03 Jun 18 UTC I cannot believe I got points out of this game
03 Jun 18 UTC France, your moves sucked. Just saying. To move into Germany and then just start support holding yourself. What is that?
03 Jun 18 UTC Once I realized that I’d let England out maneuver me I kinda gave up (this was in 1909)
03 Jun 18 UTC Never give up. Never surrender.
03 Jun 18 UTC I was being a bit of a sore loser
03 Jun 18 UTC Yeah, i know, i really thought i had a solo shot till you gave up all that space to England.
04 Jun 18 UTC gg all
Italy - Clever support into MAR in '01.
Turkey, Glad you made the draw. An exasperating Austria.
04 Jun 18 UTC Why did you put up your draw England
04 Jun 18 UTC Firstly, for a possible (however implausible) effect on France's play. When France actually left Portugal I was shocked.
I also thought you would not draw with Turkey still alive.
Besides that, however, you were playing very well, which made a solo really difficult:
1. There was no way you were going to let me get past North Africa.
2. Thought France would ultimately have the sense to settle into POR-SPA-MAR and neither of us would allow the other to take any of these.
3. Thought the most I would get from Russia was MOS and WAR.
4. Thought I would not take anything in Austria from you after you got a few more builds from Turkey's destruction.
5. I also didn't build quite enough armies. Opportunities to hit France quickly required a couple of fleet builds I wasn't planning on.
Given 1,2,3,4,5 - I judged that I would max out at 16 SCs so I didn't feel I was giving a solo away if it ended prematurely.
