14 Mar 19 UTC Nice, this game sure is hard
14 Mar 19 UTC My move to Sev in Spring 09 was not an attack against you, Russia. I thought it was obvious that I planned to move through to Ukraine where maybe my army could be of use. The South was stalemated with 4 units. I think Italy was unstoppable at that point anyway, though.
14 Mar 19 UTC Italy your alt account or something?
14 Mar 19 UTC Earlier, there were so many missed opportunities for us to take Serbia :(
14 Mar 19 UTC Turkey you played a good game. No I didn't expect your army to move to Ukraine, maybe I should have thought about it more thoroughly.

Not sure why England decided to go full bore on atracking me when there was no way any of us would get eliminated without Italy soloing. I could have built more fleets in the north if I was trying to eliminate you. Zero possible gain from attacking me and leaving yourself open to Italy.
14 Mar 19 UTC hello
im gonna make another gunboat
italy wow gg
i died first
gj everyone
fun gme
14 Mar 19 UTC I wasnt really crazy for you to get serbia when you had black sea. assumed france and then england would keep Italy at least partially in check
14 Mar 19 UTC I meant Autumn 08 and Spring 09 with regard to Serbia. "So many" was an overstatement, my bad.
14 Mar 19 UTC I was bad this game :/
14 Mar 19 UTC I attacked you because at that point there was no way I could hold off Italy coming in from the east, and with Germany and Austria getting done in, I would've been caught between. Decided to get some easy SCs from scand and by then I lost the home SCs
14 Mar 19 UTC sigh
14 Mar 19 UTC someone created a new gunboat i think i still have time for 1 more today
14 Mar 19 UTC Sorry mate, I know you wanted to ally but Italy was pumping out fleets. Not like Gunboat makes it easy to propose alliances lol
14 Mar 19 UTC England, you could have held off Italy for quite some time. If he committed enough units to overwhelm you, Russia and I would have been able to gain ground against his weakened South. Running away from the threat is only a good strategy if you're aiming for a survive as opposed to a draw. You're right about gunboat, though. Full press and this is a 4 way draw for sure.
