20 Jan 21 UTC gg. Italy, why the early stab? Turkey covered their flank well in the start but I thought we would have been able to slowly push through. Afterwards, Tur played us both like a fiddle.
20 Jan 21 UTC Sorry all for the misguided attack on Brest in Autumn 1911. Seven dots doesn't mean anything when they're hopelessly indefensible. Ultimately, it handed the game to Russia, who capitalized well on the chaos.

My logic was that France had two fleets and a completely safe Southern flank while Russia had only one fleet and the potential of a Turkish stab to worry about. Siding with France would be a guaranteed knife in the back while Russia had at least some chance of staying true, I thought. Taking MAO should have been the limit of how far I went under this line of thinking.
20 Jan 21 UTC I have no regrets about 1916-17, though. France, why were you attacking Tunis? Why didn't you stop Russia's retreat with ENG-WAL in Autumn 1915?
20 Jan 21 UTC Gg all. Apologies to Turkey who was a great ally and deserved better. I honestly went back and forth about it, the Spring 1914 moves tipped me over the edge.
20 Jan 21 UTC To the untrained eye France threw the game to Russia. Not sure why. Experienced player so I am sure there is a reason I am missing. (No worries russia, first time in a while I’ve even got the Juggernaut going - and you gotta do what you gotta do- we should have stopped you).
