13 Jul 20 UTC Austria still attacking Italy way after it was clear Germany was likely to solo was fun
13 Jul 20 UTC Yep, very frustrating. It was a bizarre move to attack me in the first place in 1902, with the Juggernaut looking likely. But we had so many chances to form the stalemate line before Germany crossed the border.

Frustrations aside, good game all and well played Germany.
13 Jul 20 UTC England attacked me for way too long before realizing germany would solo
13 Jul 20 UTC Yeah, I would’ve been pretty frustrated in your position Turkey and Italy. You already had the stalemate line in the center in A08, and probably could’ve rolled me out of Warsaw and/or Moscow, but Austria was just not playing ball.

@France, I’m not sure I agree that England attacked you for *way* too long. But I do agree that England let me get too strong the last couple years we were allied. Not sure if England was thinking the same, but even if they were, it’s a tough message to send in Gunboat, and I’m not sure which center(s) England could’ve reasonably fought harder for or kept me out of, except Moscow (that one seems like a clearer mistake).
13 Jul 20 UTC When they started heading towards tunis, it was too far. Once I had spain locked up, they should have realized that brest was going to be your next target and helped me. Especially since russia wasn't doing well.
13 Jul 20 UTC I tried to send messages that they needed to attack you, but I didn't have much leeway.
13 Jul 20 UTC On the last turn we could have staved off your win with spain>marseilles doubly supported. I thought you missing gascony cutting support from spain was more likely than turkey seeing that doubly supporting spain>marseilles was necessary
13 Jul 20 UTC Tunis was too far for sure. I thought they were going to keep playing along and pushing fleets in to take Spain for themselves, and it might've worked if they were one or two points stronger relative to me, but as it was stabbing them was too good of a move.

Attacking Marseilles the other way wouldn't have worked either--you'll notice that I ordered Tyr to Pie as well. If the game went on, maybe I would get kicked out of Tyr or Gas eventually, but you only need to hold 18 on one turn, heh.
13 Jul 20 UTC Yeah, as Germany said, there was no way we could take Mar at the end. If Austria would have supported me to Tyr in Spring 1902 however, I'd have bounced Germany's army, meaning they would not have been able to cut support from Piedmont. That would have enabled us to take Mar if we were all on the same page, which I'm sure we would have been. But alas, Austria elected to offer extra support to Budapest for some unknown reason.
13 Jul 20 UTC *Spring 1912
13 Jul 20 UTC And to give England the benefit of the doubt, it's possible they didn't intend to take Tunis originally. They could have been manoeuvring for an attack on Iberia, but having seen Germany's fleets move West after Spring 1906, taking Tunis could have been a desperate attempt at not losing a unit having foreseen the stab.
13 Jul 20 UTC That’s fair. My stab was not especially well disguised haha
13 Jul 20 UTC By the way Germany, nice move delaying the build in 1905 to ensure you could build two fleets the next year after stabbing England.
13 Jul 20 UTC Thanks—that was exactly my intention, in addition to making myself appear less threatening.
