01 Apr 20 UTC Congrats Germany, you earned. Screw you Turkey. Learn how to play.
01 Apr 20 UTC No
01 Apr 20 UTC GG tho
01 Apr 20 UTC Apologies to England. Would have loved to save you and stop Germany from soloing but Turkey made it impossible. Hope that Tunis was worth it Turkey.
01 Apr 20 UTC GG WP. Sorry for attacking you, France. Turkey, you really got bogged down in the Balkans for several years there... I just supported Austria holding like six times and nothing ever happened!
01 Apr 20 UTC GG
01 Apr 20 UTC hard life playing as italy, haha
01 Apr 20 UTC Yeah, Italy is sooo dull... I have them in another game and I'm dying of boredom
01 Apr 20 UTC Well done Germany. I knew the attack was coming so I tried to by time and take Belgium, and defend England.

Also apologies to Italy for going after you so relentlessly. I didn't intend it that way
01 Apr 20 UTC France, I think you had a better chance if England and Russia didn't drop out twice. I probably wouldn't have attacked you at the time also.
01 Apr 20 UTC Italy I built my 01 fleet simply to appease Germany. I didn't want to attack you but you were wide open and G/E just left me completely untouched.
01 Apr 20 UTC England at least played excellently after filling in for the quitter. And there was nothing the new Russia could have done. So I don't blame it on them at all. It was 100% Turkey. We could have stalemated you years ago, and he just chose to go for the solo when he had no chance.
01 Apr 20 UTC ofc. no bad blood between us
01 Apr 20 UTC I honestly had no intention to attack France until after Fall 1906. But also I was delighted at Italy vs France
01 Apr 20 UTC Looking back at it, Russia kind of ruined the game by dropping out... :(
01 Apr 20 UTC I knew you were. I built no armies and didn't attack you until the very end. Pretty good gunboat truce.
01 Apr 20 UTC Russia was a veteran player with the most centers. No doubt he was watching Tiger King or something and just missed a second deadline by mistake after that bizarre attack on Silesia
01 Apr 20 UTC I was pretty friendly toward E and F after R invaded Silesia. I would've done a western triple if you guys wanted (and if E stayed in the game)
01 Apr 20 UTC Oh by the way my bizarre invasion of Albania happened because I was trying to click Apulia and hit Albania by mistake.
01 Apr 20 UTC "he was watching Tiger King or something and just missed a second deadline by mistake" LOL

"that bizarre attack on Silesia" yeah I didn't understand that... dropped my attack on England to retaliate at that point.
01 Apr 20 UTC "my bizarre invasion of Albania" yeah I was wondering why there was a French piece in Albania... this makes more sense
01 Apr 20 UTC He was in a great position prior to that and then singlehandedly wasted your Swedish support and ruined his chances even if he had stuck around for a useless jab at Berlin
01 Apr 20 UTC Turkey, you could've finished Austria a few years earlier... work on your tactics dude!
01 Apr 20 UTC Maybe he thought you and I were at war? But I built fleets in MAR and BRE so that doesn't make sense
01 Apr 20 UTC Or you know maybe just don't invade the only guy stopping the solo lol
01 Apr 20 UTC Turkey basically jumped on a dud grenade and pulled the pin just to be a martyr
01 Apr 20 UTC I also disapprove of England suiciding in 1910, but maybe I could have won anyway. Who knows
01 Apr 20 UTC Even if he didn't realize you'd solo when he invaded me, he had like 5 years to figure it out. The only two reasonable answers are that:
A, he doesn't know how to play
B, he's one of those players who never draws no matter what.
01 Apr 20 UTC I don't think he quite suicided. I think he was trying for desperate bounces knowing he had no other chance.
01 Apr 20 UTC C. he thought it was points per supply center
01 Apr 20 UTC I felt so bad about leaving England to die he had been great to mr
01 Apr 20 UTC I considered that.... But you don't get points per center in a solo. So maybe it's A and C.
01 Apr 20 UTC Good night all. GG. Of course the Germans will always take over Europe if those pesky Americans don't bail you out... bye!
01 Apr 20 UTC cg. germany. you've played greatly.
01 Apr 20 UTC france. you had too many armies. your fleet came too little, too late.
01 Apr 20 UTC it was a nice game. i enjoyed to be part of it.
01 Apr 20 UTC Too many armies? I barely had any!

My enormous fleet could have saved you if Turkey hadn't fruitlessly attacked.
01 Apr 20 UTC sorry! these comments were intended to another game i have just finished, where i am england as too!
01 Apr 20 UTC Oh haha ok
