17 Sep 19 UTC Turkey, bruh
17 Sep 19 UTC And italy, why the stab in autumn 1903?? We had him and we couldve turned West..
17 Sep 19 UTC @Italy and Turkey -

You guys did absolutely nothing but turtle and vote for draws. You also kept slamming into Austria instead of actually trying to pressure France in the south. I was constantly having to retreat because France could throw all his might into me while I had to finish Russia off.

And then the stab for Moscow from Turkey sealed it - I decided to say screw it and ensure France got the solo.
17 Sep 19 UTC Terrible play from Italy/Turkey. Absolutely terrible

17 Sep 19 UTC Yes, blame Turkey, one of two countries furthest to the east, on not stopping France, one of two counties furthest to the west. Blaming Italy, sure. I never had a chance to get out west to pressure France.
17 Sep 19 UTC I blame you for taking Moscow from me like an idiot. Why would you lower my SC count when you were trying to get a draw?
17 Sep 19 UTC And how you were playing with Austria/Italy was not conducive to allowing them to move west. You should've been allowing them to move west to start doing something instead of slamming into them constantly.
17 Sep 19 UTC Seriously, look @ A1912 - if you would've not snapped Moscow I could've bunkered in on Berlin and Munich, but you made me have to destroy 2 units.
17 Sep 19 UTC Austria, I don't know if it was really considered a stab in 03, I telegraphed my wanting Greece in the spring, I didn't think it was unreasonable to get a piece of the Balkans especially since you had the rest and it would have taken me a while to crack Turkey (considering I probably wouldn't have gotten another piece of turkey at all if I didn't destroy your fleet).

After that when you had the 2 builds I was worried you'd just decide to get rid of me after my attempt on Greece (which you didn't do, obviously but oops. thats my bad) so thats when I moved back in 04.

At that point kinda hit the point of no return. But I am sorry, I do wish I went about it in a different way

@Germany, not to say I played well this game, but I don't know at what point I could have successfully turned West and not committed suicide by doing so. But yes it would have helped you against France I'm sure that is true.
17 Sep 19 UTC Though to be fair I wasn't doing much for my chances anyway, guess I could have done something good and stopped/slowed the solo before my demise.
17 Sep 19 UTC I supported your move into Constantinople. I literally offered you the entirety of Turkey
17 Sep 19 UTC Spring 1903 The fleet at Aegean Sea support move to Constantinople from Smyrna. (fail) (dislodged)
17 Sep 19 UTC You are right of course, I am not saying what I did was right. With hindsight you were obviously only helping me until I attacked you fully in 04(and I am sorry for ruining that).

Was just too paranoid for my own good, not used to A/I running ahead so fast
17 Sep 19 UTC @Italy - 1906 is when the stalemate of you three started and any sort of movement west could have allowed you to take Spain.

It is what it is, I was annoyed for quite some time watching you three down there, but then Turkey just sealed the solo by taking Moscow for his own gain.
17 Sep 19 UTC Just to be clear Germany, I was not to engage Austria and Italy to my west, but then also leave you alone in the north? Yes, taking Moscow was an oversight. I didn't realize how many SC france had at that point, but it's unrealistic to expect Turkey to sit pat, especially with Austria and Italy attacking me on two fronts.
17 Sep 19 UTC I wasnt attacking you?
17 Sep 19 UTC Spring 1910, was moving to stop an obviously incoming solo. You took Rumania and Bulgaria. I even let you have Sevastopol while I couldve taken it
17 Sep 19 UTC You just admitted to trying to assist italy in taking Con. Even if you weren't directly attacking me, you were assisting in attacking me.
17 Sep 19 UTC 1902 xDDDDD
vs 1910. Plans change.
17 Sep 19 UTC Dude, when someone is going for the solo and you have a draw vote submitted, don't be a dipshit and keep taking the SC's from the people who CAN do something. That should go without saying.

You could've moved fleets through the Med to try to reinforce Italy to allow France to not be able to take back any territories.
17 Sep 19 UTC And it isn't unrealistic for you to 'sit pat' if someone is going for the solo. Everyone else has to try to shore up and make a wall to stop the solo, which usually happens unless someone like you screws it up.

17 Sep 19 UTC And again, to reinforce this for you, if you weren't such a tool and focusing on growing, we (Austria and I) could've walled in Berlin and Munich and stopped him at 17 SCs.
