06 Nov 13 UTC SO MANY BONES TO PICK

1st off, good game Russia and presumably Austria. Russia, you took great advantage of the many, many opportunities gifted to you. Austria, you were fucked by fate. Too bad none of your neighbors chose to work with you.

2nd off, Germany, mostly good game. Although i question the decision to go after England when France and Russia were. Where do you think they're going next?

3rd off, Italy, what the hell were you thinking this game? No one ever attacked you, and yet you maxed out at 5 SCs. You basically just laid there and did pretty much nothing. What was the point of hitting Spain for what, six straight years? Please check out the strategy archive at http://www.diplomacy-archive.com/resources/strategy/italy.htm

Turkey, I'd advise you to check out the strategy archive as well, if I thought you were literate. But honestly, you probably aren't. That was the worst played Turkey I've ever seen. As a hint, in the future, instead of banging fruitlessly away at Serbia with two armies when you're never going to take it, maybe you want to put an army in Albania at some point?

Finally, France. Yeeesh. Yeah, the best move when you're trying to get a draw is attacking the border powers that are trying to contain the power that is going for the victory. Your terrible play, when coupled with Turkey's, put a bow on the present of the game to Russia.
06 Nov 13 UTC Wow this is the longest written text, i've ever seen here!
06 Nov 13 UTC By the way: gg russia and grats on vic :-)
06 Nov 13 UTC I tried! He stirred.
06 Nov 13 UTC Seriously France, autumn 1909, why did you attack Kiel? Or Autumn 1908, why London?
06 Nov 13 UTC Bob I agree with most of what you said, yet their "unique" style of playing the game had me wondering what their next move would be for like half the game.
06 Nov 13 UTC That's very diplomatic of you, Russia.
06 Nov 13 UTC Leg of the analysis has forgotten England of course which it was which helped, in the end, Russia to solo. France did be the remaining. The Turk was silly and Italy without idea. But England was a disaster, terrible!
06 Nov 13 UTC OK, if you think that, Germany. I disagree, but que sera, sera. in my defense, I'd point out that you were helping Russia attack me when France was attacking me. This means that I'm likely dead. If I'm dead, I like to cripple someone with me, and usually, I'll try to cripple the player who I felt most arbitrarily attacked me. I understood France and Russia's decision to attack me, but yours was puzzling, especially when I think about what would happen next after I was killed or mortally wounded. it seems pretty obvious to me that if France, Germany, and Russia take down England, the next power to be hit will be Germany.
