01 Nov 18 UTC Good game. Thanks.
01 Nov 18 UTC Well played, Germany. Very deftly turned back Turkey's march and maneuvered yourself up perfectly for the late dash for the solo. I don't think there was anything I could have done about it except for attack you several years ago, which would have just handed the solo to Turkey.

Turkey you played really well too -- I thought you were going to have the solo for awhile there until Germany and I got in sync just in the nick of time. I was trying to signal you for several seasons that we should join up to stalemate Germany, but my options were pretty limited with so few units. Maybe I should have put up the draw vote sooner? Was there a move you were looking for?

France, I'm obviously a little biased here, but an opening all out assault on Italy seems...ill advised. As you can see it was easy for me to block you so neither of us could get anywhere, but in the meantime Germany (or England) and Turkey just keep growing and growing. In a press game it can work as part of a western triple, but I can't see how it could ever work in gunboat. At the very least you needed to disengage once I was able to swing around to defend, and when I kept signaling to you I wanted to make peace.
01 Nov 18 UTC Very well concluded, Italy, I can just agree. I simulate that I just want to prevent a Turkish solo. I just waited for the right time to go for a solo.
