25 Feb 19 UTC First off, congrats to Italy!

Then... England, I'm just completely dumbstruck to see that you have 249(!) games on your profile. I was thinking, I'll forgive the player, probably first time he plays no biggie.

To pass primary school and play Gunboat Diplomacy you at least need to have mastered basic arithmetic. In spring 1909, Italy was already at 11 sc's and we couldn't stop him from taking 6 sc's more. 11+6 = 17. You win the game at 18, that means we couldn't give him any sc's (like StP, Ber, Mar, Mun, Kie etc). So I thought to myself: "you know what, I'll dislodge England in MAO so he can take Tunis and I'll start setting up the stalemate line > spring 1909. So far so good.

Then.. England, you kept attacking me in autumn 1909 and then 1910, while I was moving away from you FOR THREE TURNS STRAIGHT with everything I got, trying to set up the stalemate line. You keep attacking me.. WHY? To top everything off, you even LEAVE Tunis again during that time for Italy to take. This could have been such an easy 3-way (or 4-way with G). Now we have nothing, why.. why?!?

I really couldn't believe my eyes when I saw on your profile 249 games played. Are you a bot or something? Or a toddler, missing tutelage in arithmetic? Amazing play, and not in a good way.
25 Feb 19 UTC 249 games played and only 200 points. that pretty much says it all, what would you like to bet that most of his wins are "1 v 1" which of course do no count for anything.

But France, you are guilty of the same thing. many times I tried to retake some of my own SC, so that I could set up my part of the line, but at every chance, you selfishly went for it yourself.
25 Feb 19 UTC so, it was crystal clear that you would not have kept me in the draw, so at the end, i cut the obvious support of Kiel to make sure that both England and France lost with me.
25 Feb 19 UTC I admit. It was an easy game. I think I was rear to not attack France and Germany to the end. Of course when France start a run in my direction, it was the green light that I was waiting for.
25 Feb 19 UTC Yeah G, totally get your cut of Kiel would have done the same thing. Make sure italy wins. I did the same thing by not defending Paris. I thought when England also takes that, while I'm clearly not defending, I won't hold and destroy such that Italy easily wins.

I absolutely do not agree with you that I did the same thing as England. England and I were 8 vs 9 scs in spring 1909, with England occupying Tunis at the end of that year. Italy had 1 army next to Mun at the end of that year. 100% safe to eliminate your 1 sc at that point. Not so much when England for no logical reason leaves Tunis. Then I see Italy countered me in spring 1910, so I start support holding Mun and not attacking you of course. But instead of filling Ruhr to hold the line, England taps Kiel.. wtf.
25 Feb 19 UTC To a much smaller degree of course. The only way I make it to the draw, is with 2sc, so even had England played properly, without you're giving me 2 s c I would have thrown to Italy anyways
25 Feb 19 UTC If England played properly, you couldn't have thrown. Your action wouldn't have mattered.
25 Feb 19 UTC well, that's probably true.
25 Feb 19 UTC I blame Russia for stabbing me in '01
