29 May 19 UTC Good game Italy, France, Germany. I realized in about 1913 that my chances for a solo were sub 1% and decided to focus on getting it down to a three way draw.
29 May 19 UTC Nice game, every1.
29 May 19 UTC Infortunately, we had too much CD.
29 May 19 UTC Two moves Italy made in particular prevented me from soloing, in my view. First, he took the opportunistic move to invade Budapest way back in 1905. It wasn't a big deal back then, we weren't allied yet. But if I had held it, the extra army and positioning would have let me stab him in about 1910, while France and Italy were still gridlocking the med. Combined with my guesswork in England, I'm pretty sure I would have hit 18. But the even better strategic move Italy made that saved the game for you two was the quick decision to accept France's peace deal for the Med. I was counting on him pressing into Iberia or at least Marseilles. If he had, it would have been curtains.

I also though Germany played pretty well given the hand he was dealt. Not sure what Austria, England and especially Turkey 2.0 was doing.
29 May 19 UTC Also, Turkey 1.0's opener was brilliant. I had never considered Ankara sup Sev-BLA before... it's like a guaranteed gunboat juggernaut setup. It's a shame he NMR'd.
29 May 19 UTC I didn't really do much in this stalemate, it was all Italy. We were friends for most of it, then I decided to stab Italy for the hopeful solo, but I made too many enemies, and a solo wasn't possible anyway. I became too excited when I gained 3 builds. I enjoyed our fight though Russia. So glad it's over, though.

The Turkey opener was really wild. I think I may have to use that one day.
29 May 19 UTC Also, I counted on that peace deal. If Italy pressed, then I would have lost England without a doubt. I really appreciate that.
29 May 19 UTC It was smart of you to bank on it. Nice work playing your outs. It's tricky to do that in gunboat.
