15 Oct 20 UTC Good game. Thought Germany might be NEFS, and I KNEW Matticus was Russia lol
15 Oct 20 UTC Yeah, well I suck donuts at gunboat, so...
15 Oct 20 UTC Easy to spot
15 Oct 20 UTC Good game. I made a stupid by going for Moscow in S1907 instead of going to Prussia. If I do that instead I probably solo as I absolutely could have taken either Munich or Berlin and eventually have forced the other. What a shame.
15 Oct 20 UTC Stupid mistake *
15 Oct 20 UTC I always assume Austria will push West if Russia goes at Turkey... Never works.
15 Oct 20 UTC Yeah, I was quite worried about Germany and Italy's bad positions, but part of that was on me for how I was deploying.
15 Oct 20 UTC I don't remember why I ended up turning on you instead of Italy. I remember thinking I was definitely going after him and then I didn't. I wish I kept the journal I planned on keeping before I got bent over by work
15 Oct 20 UTC I think it was probably because of how low tempo Italy felt. If they were in Syria the turn I stabbed you I probably go for them.
15 Oct 20 UTC I also got into the Aegean which made me happier to work with Italy so that probably had something to do with it
15 Oct 20 UTC I also wish you had taken some German territory in 1908, Austria! England may then have been forced to support my positions in Tun/Nap/Rom. The fruitless war with France really kept me on my heels and made resistance to the inevitable Austrian stab futile.
15 Oct 20 UTC GG
15 Oct 20 UTC Gg all
15 Oct 20 UTC @Russia I think I know why I chose to kill you. I thought you were dead to rights because I assumed the EG was going to roll you and I wanted to get to Moscow before Germany and also take Warsaw. Little did I know the very next turn that France would get greedy and try to fight a two front war against EG and save you. If I had known you would have lived in probably ready to take Italy down and help with Germany to some degree
15 Oct 20 UTC Logic is usually downfall, so that makes sense.
15 Oct 20 UTC GGs! I tried to predict the Russian attack in A02, can't believe you actually just convoyed to Ankara...but really trying to bounce what would have been a supported move to ARM is kinda dumb. Probably should just stay put. I feel like I'm garbage at Turkey in gunboat :/

"I always assume Austria will push West if Russia goes at Turkey... Never works."
Looks like I have nothing to add here ;)
15 Oct 20 UTC GG’s bros, well played TFB and Chaqa
15 Oct 20 UTC Turkey has become my least favorite country to play in Gunboat now that the kill Austria meta of like a billion years ago is dead. Now it's RAI against T best case (you die fast) or RT vs AI (you die slowly)
