Gg everyone
28 Sep 19 UTC Also carl good work on keeping our alliance intact thru the entire thing

I was hoping u would give me sweden but meh
28 Sep 19 UTC I wasn’t originally planning to attack Italy when I did but seeing his move to Ionian in 1909 I felt my hand was forced.
28 Sep 19 UTC I played so badly this game. Committed to attacking France and ended up with none of the profits, and I misplayed hard with the Italian army retreating that forced me to give up Berlin too. I knew Munich was gone but I could have held Berlin and kept this from going tits up. Thankful we all got on the same page.

stressed, I should have given you Sweden in S02 but I got cute with it. In 1903 I was concerned you might just attack me and take your chances after getting Sweden, since Italy was giving France hell already. I should have just committed from the jump and made this work.
29 Sep 19 UTC @chaqa I toyed with the idea of attacking you first for a solo attempt but decided against it and instead settled with a precautionary move to ionian in case you went for me... I'm happy to have managed to hold out, I thought it was touch and go for a while. Managed to guess correctly in that last turn.
29 Sep 19 UTC Looking back, I made the first real move, but it was only because I felt like I needed to... I think it was that, or lose.
29 Sep 19 UTC You did well by taking Greece and Bulgaria. If you had left either of them, I would have been able to get one more unit, which would have been enough to turn the tide. Additionally, I did not expect the moves you and Germany were doing in the northern front, and could have grabbed Kiel if I had expected Germany to push his units further.

Was a well-played game all around. I was considering pulling back so Germany could be eliminated, but I didn't think it likely to happen.

I also was trying to figure out if I had a chance to eventually win down south, but losng Venice sealed it. I was even worried about the moves you did (Rome -> Venice) but I didn't think it super likely you'd risk it...

It was well played all around!
29 Sep 19 UTC I was pretty worried, it was close! The German move last year was great, meaning you had to use Tyrolia elsewhere and obviously didn't cover Venice. Bulgaria/Constantinople was a lucky guess as to if you were support holding Greece or supporting to Bulgaria.
29 Sep 19 UTC I'd be very interested in playing some more games. A bunch of mine are finishing up this week for some reason, so I'm down from like 15 games to like 5 haha.
29 Sep 19 UTC I believe I only left Kiel vulnerable in S12, which would have been trivial to take back in A12. I finally got my head out of my ass and started trying to turn the position instead of sitting around waiting to die lol.
29 Sep 19 UTC Big props all around gentlemen. GG
