29 Nov 19 UTC Italy, just support me into Brest. It's a perfectly safe 17-17 draw, zero risk, more points. Dumb ass.
29 Nov 19 UTC No thanks.
29 Nov 19 UTC Fuck you
29 Nov 19 UTC This is why I have 9000 points and you don't
29 Nov 19 UTC Into Portugal, I meant.
29 Nov 19 UTC 140 more points for both of us, with absolutely zero risk, none.
29 Nov 19 UTC Besides, France played like shit and deserved to die.
29 Nov 19 UTC Great game! I really enjoyed it
29 Nov 19 UTC I assumed you got so many points from your obviously prolific diplomatic skills.
29 Nov 19 UTC It's gunboat, douchebag.
29 Nov 19 UTC Smaller draw = more points.
29 Nov 19 UTC Hope Austria learned why Lepanto can backfire for them...

Well done Italy, you played well.
29 Nov 19 UTC Thanks Turkey, was a good game.
29 Nov 19 UTC Not that you deserve an actual answer for acting like an asshole, but I this was my last active game before I take a break for the holidays. France played fine and I didn't care to cut him out and would rather have ended the game earlier. And then it was just to spite you...
30 Nov 19 UTC Italy god bless you. I was going to compliment england on how he played, but never mind.
30 Nov 19 UTC Because France was utterly defeated in 1901?
30 Nov 19 UTC No, because its you. If you werent so god damn arrogant you wouldve been able to see people trying to be nice to you.
30 Nov 19 UTC Your moves were good and you did indeed shut me down. But my mentor adviced me to just keep trying to break through the MAO. Turning to Italy wasnt useful and attacking germany wouldve helped you.
30 Nov 19 UTC Well the first thing is, in gunboat, as France, always go to the channel.
30 Nov 19 UTC Secondly, if you are stuck with a 2 v 2 Mao scenario, the only way out is to steal a supply Center from Italy or Germany to get a 3rd fleet. But I know that also, so I saw it coming when you stole Tunis. And with Russia and Munich grabbing that was impossible
30 Nov 19 UTC So, always go to the channel, an English fleet in Mao is death for France
30 Nov 19 UTC Thank you, that was actual useful feedback. Like I said, you played that well but to I dont think its really fair to say I 'played like shit'.
30 Nov 19 UTC No, that's true.
30 Nov 19 UTC The best way to win in gunboat as France is to first take Belgium, as a distraction, then convoy from Belgium to Wales, give up Belgium to Germany while you conquer England, and outflank Germany at Sea and kill Germany later.
30 Nov 19 UTC An initial frontal assault on land only against Germany never works
30 Nov 19 UTC Reverse is true for Germany against France direct assault rarely works, always win the seas and outflank
30 Nov 19 UTC Is there any way to win as Russia?
30 Nov 19 UTC Yes
