26 Feb 19 UTC Oh hi everyone.

I couldn't decide whether I wanted my draw vote or not. Worse, I didn't realize until the last 24 hours or so that the draw votes were visible, and then wondered why Germany always knew when I was planning to work with him or attack him.
26 Feb 19 UTC Good game y'all!
26 Feb 19 UTC ahahah.
Good game!
I was angling to get Turkey out but then I realized that this was sum of squares anyway...

Anyway I few frustrating mistakes, but good job on Germany for staying in there! I Was hoping France would keep attacking you and you would just throw it to me at one point :)
26 Feb 19 UTC This was exciting to watch
26 Feb 19 UTC You weren't the only one making mistakes Russia. There were a few years when I was sure I could solo, then a few where I was sure you were going to, and then it was just a big mess.
26 Feb 19 UTC Woah! I'm certain this is a French solo, and I thought France was just being nice. I couldn't figure out why Russia wouldn't draw.

But thinking it wasn't SoS would do it :)

WP all.

26 Feb 19 UTC Wait, Durga’s a mod?
26 Feb 19 UTC Technically she's a td with mod powers.
26 Feb 19 UTC I'm not a mod
26 Feb 19 UTC I kinda didn't realise this wasn't unranked until pretty near the end :D
after all the stuff that happened with France in the earlygame I was thinking 'how cool would it be if an FG came out of this'

...yeah, I would probably not have made the moves I made in F05 if I'd known it was ranked. Sorry WL!

but looking back I'm glad that I did because that was one hell of an endgame. I'm still not sure who had this. My orders this round had Mun-Kie, Ber S Mun-Kie, Sil-Pru because I was fairly sure France was going to try to take over that front, but it would be a delaying tactic more than anything because there's no way I could hold that for long.
26 Feb 19 UTC Oh yeah! I actually forgot about that Germany, but when I was those moves I was really really surprised/sad. The whole southern part of the map also just fell into my lap before I was ready for it which was nice in a way, but also completely indefensible .

I would have liked to see that order go through Germany! But oh well :P
