25 Jun 19 UTC Good game, all.
25 Jun 19 UTC England you're a big mean dumdum
25 Jun 19 UTC WTF was Austria doing.

Russia... gah.

I should have built two fleets in the 1901 builds.
25 Jun 19 UTC Thank you to The Czech for taking over Germany's position.
25 Jun 19 UTC Wow, I finally played a game with some real legends!
Kind of.
Not really.
I don't think this counts.
25 Jun 19 UTC Austria's moves made no sense...
25 Jun 19 UTC Original Austria, at least
25 Jun 19 UTC I do think England should've called off the war against you, France, once it was clear I was barreling toward a solo. I'm not sure what happened there.
25 Jun 19 UTC Russia was simply unlucky, England going for Scand plus bounced out of Swe on the same turn
25 Jun 19 UTC and yeah, original Austria pretty much showed he doesn't know the game
25 Jun 19 UTC I also didn't think original Austria's moves were that crazy. That initial gambit for Rumania would've looked like a genius play if it worked out.
25 Jun 19 UTC Yeah, that endgame was odd, where it was obvious Italy was going to solo if England didn't let up the attack and try to stalemate. Good game from YHN though.
25 Jun 19 UTC Not moving to Serbia was stupid though, yeah.
25 Jun 19 UTC Thank you, Bob.
25 Jun 19 UTC I wanted to go after England when I saw that, but Germany going all in on me forced me on the long defensive, then he got stabbed since he had zero fleet builds
25 Jun 19 UTC I disagree. His moves, in a normal situation, would have had Russia in Galicia, Ukraine, and Sev, and Russia easily takes Rumania back, maybe even luckily takes Vienna or Budapest.
25 Jun 19 UTC If the fleet had moved to Albania, maybe it's better, but... eh.

If I had built two fleets, whole different game. I didn't consider the logical implications of Austria's 1902 plan.
25 Jun 19 UTC I suppose you're right, Chaqa. I have to agree that Austria's moves did not, in fact, make any sense.
25 Jun 19 UTC yeah honestly england you could have had a possibility at a draw common
25 Jun 19 UTC When I took Wales I was sure he would convoy that army back to defend but no, he keeps holding it right up til the end. Seems like his plan was to eat Germany up and then take on Italy for either a two way draw
25 Jun 19 UTC *france you could have
25 Jun 19 UTC Those early Austrian moves were odd. If the S01 moves had worked out, it would have been brilliant, but after that, their moves were pretty poor.
25 Jun 19 UTC my plan was to draw with you and germany then germany left
25 Jun 19 UTC I figured you were hoping for a 3-way draw, England, but you should've seen that you needed France to keep me from hitting 18 centers. Oh well, it worked out for me so I'm not complaining.
25 Jun 19 UTC I suppose I should either have given up the Black Sea earlier, or attacked Russia earlier. One of these *may* have given me enough strength to fight off Italy, but floundering didn't do anything.
25 Jun 19 UTC that's why i never attacked france after taking brest, just took back liverpool and then was working for a draw
25 Jun 19 UTC Draw with me and Germany? no way, then why were you so adamant on keeping Brest? I was practically begging in tears for it to hold against Italy
25 Jun 19 UTC you didn't need it to hold against italy, I wasn't going to give up supply centers to you but I also was in no way being aggressie
25 Jun 19 UTC you should have sent everything to the Iberian peninsula
25 Jun 19 UTC Also, to Turkey, the problem with Austria opening by taking Rum is that he can't hold it, and any savvy Turkish player will bounce Serbia after he gets pushed out
25 Jun 19 UTC The entire R/A interplay at the beginning there was strange. It's as though neither of them really knew what they were doing. Many odd things happened this game though.
25 Jun 19 UTC I'd say that taking back Liverpool was aggressive given that France was trying desperately to hold the line in the mediterranean.

Once I got into MAO, though, I think it was lights out either way.
25 Jun 19 UTC yeah I had fleets being built to try to kick you out but instead of destroying irish sea france for no apparent reason destroyed portugal and just invited the solo
25 Jun 19 UTC Indeed. MAO is a territory that needs to be held for any possibility of a successful stalemate against southerners.
25 Jun 19 UTC England, you were being quite aggressive. If you wanted to stop a solo, you should have laid off as much as possible to try and say "Hey, I'm not trying to attack you at all, go stalemate him."
25 Jun 19 UTC I couldn't hold on to it anymore and by that point it was honestly over
25 Jun 19 UTC Yeah Portugal was going to be lost either way. Germany would've been able to cut support to Spain from Marseilles, but there were a few coin flip options for me while I support held MAO until I got into Spain successfully. And once I would've gotten a unit in Spain, Portugal couldn't be held.
25 Jun 19 UTC i mean I took a bunch of french sc's long before the italian solo was clear, once it was I did not attack france except to secure my home sc's that he took. Don't know how much more pacifist I could be
25 Jun 19 UTC In 1901 I debated between my army in Serbia or Greece, but I couldn't imagine ANY situation where Austria doesn't take Serbia from Budapest... What was he doing, I'll never know.
25 Jun 19 UTC Hahaha Turkey, yeah, I briefly contemplated trying for Greece, but I figured you would assuredly be going there since you surely anticipated Austria would be taking Serbia.
25 Jun 19 UTC It is true, the threat needed to be adressed much earlier. It was clear by A06 that Italy was the biggest threat.
