25 Mar 19 UTC GG. Well played, gents.
25 Mar 19 UTC Jesus Germany, I thought you were trying to hand the man the game for a sec
25 Mar 19 UTC GG
25 Mar 19 UTC i did too, turkey still could have won that game in one turn. Thank God he drew a turn early
25 Mar 19 UTC So long as you two kept working together, I didn't see a solo win happening. St. Petersburg was stale mated, and the two of you could have held Tunis for several more years, even if I was lucky enough to shuffle a fleet into Gulf of Lyons.
25 Mar 19 UTC Why didn't you pop Prussia in the Spring?
25 Mar 19 UTC I am very disappointed with this result. Austria's decision making and the original Russia's NMR clearly cost me the game even though I played well and even outguessed Turkey for way longer than I had any right to. If I hadn't stalled him for two extra years or so, he would have arrived at Spain while England was still running amok and this game never would have drawn. But because of Austria and Russia's incompetence (not you Ernst Brenner but the other Russian player), I took the brunt of Turkey's expansion and lost when I shouldn't have. And in a 30 bet game no less.
25 Mar 19 UTC Yeah-- you could've taken prussia then hit berlin and munich at the same time. I would have only been able to defend one, unless france would've had an army in burgundy.
25 Mar 19 UTC I don't blame France for eliminating me. I would have done the same at that point. Ironically, if I had played slightly worse, you might have needed to let me live, since Turkey would have been stronger and finishing me would have been riskier.
25 Mar 19 UTC Yeah that sucks Italy. Game quality goes down with NMR's. It's terrible, hate to see it
25 Mar 19 UTC If a replacement had arrived after just one Russian NMR, when Russia still and Budapest, things might have gone very differently, even in gunboat.

But despite all my excuses, Turkey of course has my respect for this draw, as does France and Germany. It's not their fault I got screwed. Turkey and France in particular played the hands they were dealt quite well.
25 Mar 19 UTC England was trying to HAND the game to Germany/Turkey I was so pissed
25 Mar 19 UTC I was surprised how much England continued to assault me even after Germany was swallowing him whole.
25 Mar 19 UTC Hi, ThatBuhlLarry. I really messed that one. After Germany didn't agree to work with me against you and Russia, I had no other option other than try to create some trouble between you two.
