04 Aug 20 UTC gg. One more turn and I think Italy would try for the solo. I was stretched awfully thin. You were a good ally - but I had to try.
04 Aug 20 UTC I was AMAZED at how you two kept that up. I was sure one of you (italy) was going to stab for the solo.

I threw to make Austria stronger because I thought if I fought in Scandinavia it would give Italy time to safely eliminate me or push for the solo.

Gg guys, was fun.

Question italy: why did you fall back so hard when Turkey took Naples? You only needed 2 units and could have grabbed French centers while retaking Naples. I’m curious what you’re thoughts at the time we’re.
04 Aug 20 UTC *were.
05 Aug 20 UTC Well played. Fun working with (and against) you Austria.

I figured Germany would try to throw the game to the other person if either of us (especially me) tried to solo... in terms of your question - I was concerned over Austria possibly taking advantage and stabbing me during the Turkey attack - but I can't specifically recall my plan at the time... a consequence of playing 5 games at once lol
05 Aug 20 UTC Ah, at the time I figured it was some of:

1) Overreaction because you didn't realize what was needed
2) Didn't mind giving France a break because it held me back
3) Make sure you signal you're going to survive at all costs to prevent a pile on
05 Aug 20 UTC And yeah, I was specifically trying to buff Austria up to 17 in a way that made it easy for you (Italy) and me to hold, but easy for me to hand an 18th center if Italy decided not to hold.

I did expect Austria to back off and keep playing for a while (and try to eliminate me)
