28 May 20 UTC Turkey were you trying to get me to stab Germany at the end or were you really worried about Galicia?
29 May 20 UTC Nah I don't think you really could've stabbed Germany by the time we got to that point. I was genuinely worried about both you and Germany from about 1903 on, because it was clear your alliance was going to sweep the board, which I think made things pretty ripe for a solo attempt. And that move in Gal was not reassuring!
29 May 20 UTC Heh yeah if I'd gotten to Tunis you better believe I was going for it
29 May 20 UTC How many fleets do you guys think Germany need to have in such configuration to prevent England's solo? And alternatively, what would have been the path to Germany soloing in this game?
29 May 20 UTC Most of Eastern stalemate lines require control of three to five fleets and control of Scandinavia, this would be a bit tough to achieve without England noticing.

The best way for anyone to solo is to convince an ally that a second place is a better result than a draw and will not at all result in him being utterly conquered after your solo victory. This would secure you from a stab by either Turkey or England, and you would be able to take the remaining SCs from the other.
