26 Aug 20 UTC That was an entertaining one. Well played.
26 Aug 20 UTC it was really hard to ever get a good stab in on England. The second I did, I knew Austria would come for me. GG
26 Aug 20 UTC I think maybe I should have taken Sweden in 1904
26 Aug 20 UTC I knew England was Valis when everyone on the board was attacking me and letting him run wild in the Med. Nobody else can somehow everyone to work for them in a gunboat game.
26 Aug 20 UTC Or attacked England in 1909ish
26 Aug 20 UTC <3 GG everyone.
26 Aug 20 UTC I couldn’t do anything to stop it. I once again got gang banged by Chaqa and Valis lol...
26 Aug 20 UTC I think y'all would've had better solo chances if you had kept me alive longer. :)

But seriously. Bo, I tried signalling to you when I first joined in 1910 I was willing to help you through the med. You insisted on continuing to attack me while England was progressing into the western half. I think the game might've played out very different for you if you had taken me up on my offer.

Valis, I can see why you thought you needed the builds after Chaqa built the fleet, (Although I think you went to fight Germany too early) but in the med you actually *gave up* good positions simply to take my centres. The fact you eventually got kicked out of your Med holdings doesn't surprise me one bit. Austria simply had nothing else to worry about except removing your very outnumbered units.

But anyway, it was a good game, as always! I was glad to be able to pop into another one of these.
26 Aug 20 UTC ggs, I was alright for a bit there, then collapsed like a house of cards, because I didn't think Russia would really drag me down with them ;)
26 Aug 20 UTC Sorry PF. If it wasn't gunboat I'd absolutely keep you there, but the coordination was too difficult, among the other reasons like you already mentioned. It did indeed fail quickly.
26 Aug 20 UTC PF, I was trying to back off of you and get out of your centers for a year and you kept blocking me. Then you tried to throw the game. I have no idea what you were thinking. If you won’t disband my armies, I have to move them, and you were stopping me.
26 Aug 20 UTC Hahahaha. Trying to back off in 1913 was wayyy too late. Remember that I was fighting for my life against you until then?

Do you really think I would just let England walk into my centres if I had any other choice? It was either get crushed between you and England or hope that England sees the tactical advantage of advance Med fleets.
26 Aug 20 UTC You would have been in the draw since I had no fleets. I acknowledge that I made a mistake attacking you, but you killed yourself for no reason man.
26 Aug 20 UTC Yeah, I made the calculus that I had a better chance of surviving with England, but it might've been the wrong one. Still, I wasn't at all convinced you wouldn't have just killed me off at the first chance. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
