30 Sep 19 UTC gg France. If that first Russian player had had any sense, this could have been very different. I opened with all the "I'm on your side" moves I could and Russia still went full bore after me.
30 Sep 19 UTC I am the replacement of russia after spring 1905. I had the same question regarding germany
30 Sep 19 UTC But maybe the first russia readied up. Why is it not enought turkey? :)
30 Sep 19 UTC Sorry for Germany, you were great ally but the opportunity was too juicy :(
30 Sep 19 UTC Gg everyone. Congrats France. Game well won.
I will remember this one for some time. I joined in 1902 and managed to fend off England and Russia, while staying in good terms with France. When things were looking good, I left myself totally open for a stab in 1908. It was the right moment for France and was completely crippling for me. I convinced myself the stab was not coming and that was a fatal mistake. After that it was a matter of time, even with some much needed help from Italy.
Thx for the game everyone
30 Sep 19 UTC Gg shame about the 3 way murder of austria :(
30 Sep 19 UTC Yeah, probably if you leave anything on guard which seemed to be reasonable then I would go for easy 3way Fra - Ger - Ita and game would end like 1912 :P
