20 Jan 19 UTC gg Bob, although I would love to hear the basis for Turkey's strategy of harming my ability (and Austria's) to stop you from soloing. Maybe for Turkey, coming in 2nd is pretty cool. We'll find out. Regardless Bob, you did a great job of knocking out the North!
20 Jan 19 UTC I just realised it was SoS. I am used to play Winner takes it all. By this new perspective, I can't say Turkey is wrong, but I wouldn't play for a second place this way never, this is against the logic of the original game.
21 Jan 19 UTC Good game everyone! While I do have bones to pick with Turkey’s strat of going for second rather than stopping Germany and Italy’s back and forth every two seasons, it was pretty enjoyable and some good gunboat experience.
21 Jan 19 UTC Cheers, all. Good game. To be honest, with it being SoS scoring, I was inclined to draw a couple of years ago, until I appreciated the full extent of instability in the centre and the Med.
21 Jan 19 UTC Austria, my intention was to poke you just enough for Turkey/Russia to decide that breaking jug was feasible. But then you seemed to have a vendetta against me (kinda understandable). My hope was to get on same page as you sooner or later. Unfortunately, it was too late.
21 Jan 19 UTC I’m a little confused by what you mean when you say breaking jug, but yeah we got into a bad cycle. You hit me, I move against you while you try to make peace, you have to defend yourself, I try to make peace, and it all goes downhill. Unfortunate but common in gunboat.
21 Jan 19 UTC Agh I was so annoyed, just when I got the upper hand vs. England Italy and Germany pounced. GG all.
21 Jan 19 UTC Sorry France but once I saw that it was between Germany and Turkey, I realized that my only chance at a draw was to be at the frontier between the two near a prospective stalemate line. But that was where you were!
