18 Aug 19 UTC Spring, 1901: GameMaster: Game was extended due to at least 1 member failing to enter orders and having an excused missed turn available. This has un-readied all orders.
18 Aug 19 UTC ggs to everyone, but especially to Turkey who gets 26 points while risking zero ;)
18 Aug 19 UTC Good game
18 Aug 19 UTC gg
18 Aug 19 UTC I would've eliminated Turkey soon, but the going got tough.
18 Aug 19 UTC Turkey could have been excluded very easily if you would have attacked Germany with your full power. Then it would have been more easy for to eliminate Turkey and Russia...
18 Aug 19 UTC Though I suppose I had a stalemate line against England now.
18 Aug 19 UTC So if I had seen this result before it was drawn, I'd have taken away my vote and conquer Rumania.
18 Aug 19 UTC Nice alliance, England! I didn't mind you taking a few centres.
18 Aug 19 UTC Interesting fight, Austria! You held on really well there.
18 Aug 19 UTC special shout out to my best friend Germany, sorry that I wouldn't let you solo :P was it weird that I did the whole "walking you back slowly" thing?

@Austria, I'm very glad that you survived, felt like you earned it, but I just couldn't figure out how to communicate to G that I wanted you alive

@France whenever you see this, why did you build F BRE way back in W02? I took it as a sign of war and so I was fine with Germany dismantling you. But did I miss a sign of friendship from you?
18 Aug 19 UTC @England: No, it was very clear that you were preventing my solo while keeping the alliance intact. Not everyone might've seen it, but many people on this site appear to be blind..
18 Aug 19 UTC yeah Austria if anything I owe you lots of explanations, most of which come down to me looking at the board and thinking well, Germany can't solo yet, so I can just keep them in check

of course this means that you were stressed and fighting for your like for a decade while I strolled around the west with less units than I have fingers on one hand :/ so I understand any frustration towards me
18 Aug 19 UTC For me it was only tring to keep alive since the start. Maybe I should not have built the fleet in 1905.
18 Aug 19 UTC *for your life for a decade
18 Aug 19 UTC No, Austria, that fleet was greedy. I immediately decided to stab you.
18 Aug 19 UTC fwiw I think that fleet was an alright call, you saw weakened Turkey and Italy which means the med was all yours
18 Aug 19 UTC I am not really frustrated, because I knew what you was looking for. I was pretty sure you wanted to reach a 3 way draw including me. So I was fine. I just would have wished a bit more pressure in the early years of the stab, so I would have got it a bit more easier.
18 Aug 19 UTC Unfortunately, my moves in Spring 1905 were subpar. I tried to retreat to Galicia but that failed because I messed up my orders.
18 Aug 19 UTC to be clear with the fleet build, the stab was warranted, I'm just saying that sometimes being greedy pays off and I like the risk
18 Aug 19 UTC I knew this fleet was greedy, but it was my chance to get through Italy really fast, with the one fleet advantage.
18 Aug 19 UTC gg all
