02 Jan 21 UTC Spring, 1910: 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.
07 Jan 21 UTC Everyone, I am really sorry. The reason most of you lost is because I screwed up. Huge error on my part. It was so obvious. I saw it moves in advance, but once I moved into Russia, I was toast.
07 Jan 21 UTC I didn't know what I could do to back off, and so I plowed forward, and set myself up to lose 4 SCs in one season. So stupid.
07 Jan 21 UTC nah, i was also just not paying attention to austria at all and kept fucking with germany when i should have let up. (gg austria btw!)
07 Jan 21 UTC tx everyone. GG.
07 Jan 21 UTC Sorry about that IT. I was willing to play as your ally, but while I supported you into Moscow, you kept going for Munich, not leaving me much in the way of new SCs. So, I decided to plant the dagger. Also, as you say, you were over exposed.
07 Jan 21 UTC GG. I agree with Italy and England's self criticisms :-). Germany, I wonder why you didn't put a bit more pressure on England when I took Lvp, worried about me after England? Italy, I'd love to know your thoughts on moving against me instead of Austria. Thanks
07 Jan 21 UTC I will tell you why I went against you.
To me, the first move is always to kill the Turk. Once that was done, it is either Austria or France. Austria proved a good ally. I have this fatal weakness which is if I have an ally, I overtrust them. I forget, especially in gunboat, that this is a cutthroat game. I am one of those losers who likes to win as a team. I am trying to learn to kill that impulse, but that is what did me in. Austria kept helping me.
07 Jan 21 UTC Austria, the reason I wanted Munich was to get to Burgundy. Did you notice that the move when you stabbed me (rightfully), that I moved out of Munich. I just needed that back door to kill France.
07 Jan 21 UTC Austria, you did play well. But I mostly played poorly and gave it to you.
08 Jan 21 UTC The thought of you trying to get to Burgundy did occur to me, but I think you would have been blocked and so would block my advance as well. Which led me to look at the board and see how out of position you would be if I went for the solo.
08 Jan 21 UTC you did the right thing. I did the wrong thing.
08 Jan 21 UTC and I did get to Burgundy
08 Jan 21 UTC i think this is one of the few games i’be played recently without a single drop out, so cheers all around
08 Jan 21 UTC hear, hear!
