22 Jun 20 UTC GGs, thank you everyone for making moves quickly and readying up, you didn't have to do that, but it mad the game much more enjoyable.

@Russia, The R/A alliance was lovely while it lasted. You were a great friend. I attacked because I assumed you would attack me for the solo, which I would have understood.

About the Munich in 1920 situation, I assumed that Kiel meant to support hold Munich? But I saw that StP support held Moscow the same turn. Either way, it didn't feel right to take a win in that manner, and I was much more invested in figuring out if breaking the stalemate line in the south was possible, since it's rare to get situations like this. I hope this didn't come across as arrogant or rude or toying with you, those were not my intentions, and I'm sorry if this annoyed anyone.

@Italy, also decent alliance with you :) sorry to steal Venice in 1905, I didn't realize how scary Russia was going to look the next year, that's my mistake.

One question, is there a year where you wish you had eliminated Germany? In my opinion it was reasonable to keep them alive, they were basically free centers for you at any time, pushing north against Russia was more important, and killing them off would probably have led to settling for a 3-way draw when you had a decent solo chance.
22 Jun 20 UTC No, I want to keep Germany alive always. I made a lot of mistakes.
22 Jun 20 UTC I wanted the 3-way, because Russia has a hard time getting those last few SCs without any of the Austrian SCs. Unfortunately, I had to take the northern route because of Italy's gains in the Atlantic. I tried to signal what was coming by eliminating A Smy, but Italy kept pushing to the point where I couldn't maintain both fronts. By the time the Atlantic was stable, Austria was loose.
Austria, normally you wouldn't break through the Med line, but because neither Italy or I had any home centers to build in, we couldn't effectively fight back. I couldn't get my last fleet into position because moving to Spa or Mar would have cost Italy an SC, and I couldn't build a unit to offset. Maybe if Italy had the two more SCs from Germany, but too little, too late.
Although that blind convoy from Belgium to Gascony was sweet...
22 Jun 20 UTC Oh yeah that convoy was awesome! And yes I was helped a lot by your disbands even though Italy didn't react in time to them.

"I couldn't get my last fleet into position because moving to Spa or Mar would have cost Italy an SC"
Italy had less centers than units for a while though, you could have taken/retreated to SPA or something and they would have been fine. But it's hard to notice this if you're not already looking for it. And I was intentionally disbanding units because of clogging/capturing all the home centers.
