01 Aug 20 UTC [Kenya]:Good game everyone!
01 Aug 20 UTC [Kenya]:Haha 3 of the 4 of us took over for someone
01 Aug 20 UTC [India]:Good game. Kenya - Thanks for trusting me when I took over the last five or so years :).

Quebec - I think we would have had a fun battle if this went longer :).
02 Aug 20 UTC [Quebec]:Good game all !
Yes i did not want to push too much and did not really know how to go against you without making me vulnerable to someone else
02 Aug 20 UTC [Brazil]:Gg, wp all. Was a long game for me!
02 Aug 20 UTC [Kenya]:Yes it would have been nice to continue a gigantic 4 way war, but no one wants to be the odd man out.
02 Aug 20 UTC [India]:Kenya - For kicks and giggles, who would you have gone after?
02 Aug 20 UTC [Kenya]:I was debating a lot, I really didn't want to attack you, but I figured it might be the best course of option long term. We share a lot of borders, I wouldn't get bottlenecked trying to get to you, and I had an existing advantage. That being said, I also didn't want to leave myself exposed to Brazil, who was running out of places to expand as well.
02 Aug 20 UTC [Kenya]:What about you? Always curious on thought processes after gunboat games
02 Aug 20 UTC [India]:Logistically it did not make sense for me to attack you.

I most likely would have gone Arctic Circle and pushed on Quebec some more. My hope would have been if I pushed north on Quebec, you and Brazil would jump on and push from the south. With you and I pushing Quebec out of Europe the hope would be that would have lasted a little while.

I am curious where Brazil would have gone next.
02 Aug 20 UTC [India]:Given this was no press....it would have easily lasted another ten years or more until down to the final three.
02 Aug 20 UTC [Kenya]:Yeah Brazil was too much of the wildcard for me, so I was very content with a draw
02 Aug 20 UTC [Kenya]:I would have liked to continue and maybe even go for the win but didn't want to take the risk
02 Aug 20 UTC [Brazil]:I didn't feel like there was an easy or obvious next target for me. India and Kenya's closest borders seemed pretty well defended. I would have most likely played defensively and waited to see who became vulnerable if we played on.

I was reluctant to commit against Quebec because I felt most of the gains would have gone to India/Kenya, leading to one or both of you getting closer to solo.
