17 Sep 20 UTC Autumn, 1907: 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.
19 Oct 20 UTC GGs! Durga, do you feel better at gunboat yet?
19 Oct 20 UTC gg! ive been voting draw for at least 7 years, who was the holdout?
19 Oct 20 UTC turkey, a truly unplayable power, torturous
19 Oct 20 UTC Italy, was it my misorder that made you turn around? :(
19 Oct 20 UTC GG's!
19 Oct 20 UTC Lol I was the holdout. I just didn't realize I didn't have it up and was having fun
19 Oct 20 UTC Not sure I particularly feel better, this is still part of the training montage
19 Oct 20 UTC Gg all, tyvm for playing
19 Oct 20 UTC I'd have tried to solo this French position.
19 Oct 20 UTC Jasnah, what do you mean by "turn around"?
19 Oct 20 UTC The convoy in A07? No, I just couldn't hold my own against France so I needed a new plan.
19 Oct 20 UTC I was so annoyed when you disbanded GoL and WES. I knew it was you too. I looked and it and sighed and thought, well, fuck.

Very grateful France didn't in fact try for the solo, but there's a non negligible chance I get Ber and Stp or some other permutation if she does.
19 Oct 20 UTC should have gone for tunis
19 Oct 20 UTC I was also prepared to support hold Ber, I'd been afraid of a French solo for a while
19 Oct 20 UTC Well, I was quite annoyed you kept taking my centres.
19 Oct 20 UTC I only took tunis the first time so you couldn't build.

naples was a mistake i grant that. but to be fair, you spent the past 5 years harassing me with no chance of gain.
19 Oct 20 UTC By harassing you mean desperately trying to defend Ionian Sea so I wouldn't die?
19 Oct 20 UTC you lost Ionian in 1906 and never even had the units to get it back, every point thereafter, dead, only a matter of time.

i thought it might have been my convoy failure (combined with france taking munich, of course) that had made you decide to bet on france instead of me, for the next few years, until 1910, when, of course, france doomed you by sending MAO south instead of moving to Cly and NAO to guarantee NTH, a decision that was great for me and terrible for you. then you disliked her more as a result, very obvious the S11 moves a result of france saying 'fuck you' to italy, but, by then it was too late.
19 Oct 20 UTC And NAO not even needed, now I look at it, germany obviously writing 'support hold NTH', just shifting into Yor Lon ENG would have done it..
19 Oct 20 UTC I actually went after you so hard, part of the reason, was because we wouldn't have been able to hold tunis, if it had come to it, even if i wanted to support you, fleet can't get through to tuscany without making italy disband along the way, and that's game over
19 Oct 20 UTC You still didn't hold Tunis.
19 Oct 20 UTC yeah, i fucked up :'(((
