10 Dec 19 UTC Autumn, 1902: GameMaster: Game was extended due to at least 1 member failing to enter orders and having an excused missed turn available. This has un-readied all orders.
07 Jan 20 UTC GG all. The last SC is too far :-(
07 Jan 20 UTC Good game everyone specifically Austria!
07 Jan 20 UTC Austria, BACK UP, away from Germany, and we would have gladly killed him, to make a smaller draw.
07 Jan 20 UTC supporting France into Munich is not going to cut it, he's not going to take the bait, because as son as he goes into Munich, Germany starts moving Berlin to throw and you win the solo. but to actually get France and England to kill Germany, you have to move all your armies back about two provinces, which is totally safe for you to do, as Germany will not pursue you, with you back far enough, then England and France easily kill Germany and set up a new stalemate line, without him, and we all get more points.
07 Jan 20 UTC Hey, not everyone would have gotten more points! England is right, though. I'm thanking my lucky stars to have been left alive.
07 Jan 20 UTC Yeah, Austria, bruh, why not just back off? I was signalling to you I wanted to cooperate, but as England said I'm not dumb enough to take the bait.

That said, WP to Germany for making it to the draw!
07 Jan 20 UTC Italy, can I ask why you insisted on attacking me all game while Austria grew out of control?
07 Jan 20 UTC another option is to give us Tunis. That would make it much safer for us to kill Germany.
07 Jan 20 UTC And @england, can you explain your naval strategy (specifically around keeping MAO and English)?
07 Jan 20 UTC I'd be down for another another sweetwater game!
07 Jan 20 UTC Ill form another game but I’ve been getting killed lately, lol!
07 Jan 20 UTC ah, that's my favorite thing to do as England, take MAO and keep it for the entire game, prevents any possibility of a french convoy into the British isles, very effective indeed. I take Brest only to take MAO.
07 Jan 20 UTC Forces France to do nothing or get so frustrated that France eventually attacks Germany to desperately get a new fleet build, which is what you ended up doing
07 Jan 20 UTC kind of makes France into an English vassal state.
