28 Jul 20 UTC I think that's game. Wish I had taken Bohemia/Silesia sooner, or secured Marseilles when I had the chance. But you guys have a line, nicely done. Gg.
29 Jul 20 UTC This was a great game in my opinion, thank you all! Well played!

A lot of 50-50s against you Italy which could decide the game, Autumn 1911 (weather to move MAO to WM or NA), Autumn 1912 (weather to retreat to NA or destroy the unit, if I missed this one you would win the game), Spring 1914 (weather to protect Silesia or Warsaw).

And Russia, I was truly hoping you will take St.Pet (before Italy came to Ukr and Sev) and build army in Moscow (that is why I was moving constantly between Prus and Liv, not knowing what you and Italy are going to do). That would save me a loooot of time to transport my own unit north to protect Moscow. Also, another way was to secure Bohemia. For 3 turns Warsaw was just standing there and not cutting support from Galicia bringing Italy very close to the victory.
29 Jul 20 UTC Good game, thanks all. Glad to be a part of the draw - I spent ages agonising over some decisions towards the end, including some of the things you mentioned England.

I obviously considered moving to StP. Autumn 1912 was the turn to do it if I was going to. I just couldn't be certain that you wouldn't try for Warsaw that turn, and I felt keeping Warsaw was my best shot of making the draw. Ultimately I hedged on you getting an army to StP before Italy broke through, which you did. Both choices had their risks.

And regarding Warsaw cutting support, again I never felt that Warsaw would be safe enough to do that. I thought it a bigger risk to leave Warsaw vulnerable than to concede Silesia/Bohemia to Italy. I also had in the back of my mind the thought that if you broke through against Italy in that area, you might be more in a position to safely take War/Mos for yourself for a duo. Could have gone either way, but I basically went for what I felt was the less risky option each time.
