06 Jan 14 UTC Good game. I apologize for not forcing the draw. I should have been more aggressive in the west–I only realized how close France was when it was too late.
06 Jan 14 UTC Bravo Andruha.
06 Jan 14 UTC Congrats Andruha on recovering from Englands early attack, and on a well played game throughout.

Italy, Germany - when you vote draw, play like it. We could have contained France so much earlier on in the game. But Italy you kept attack me, running away from France, and Germany Russia. Why?

MichiganMan, it was pleasant playing with you and I am sorry for the end.

Ssorenn was doomed by an anti austria Italy, but did well holding on as long as he did.

All in all, I still favor draw/cancel after an 01 NMR because it skews the game and changes strategy.
06 Jan 14 UTC And Italy, just saw your message. I figured my move to N Africa would clue you in, but you kept attacking. It happens. Wish you had realized earlier, but so it goes with live games.
06 Jan 14 UTC Nikola...you're supposed to know better. Such a lame performance from you. WTF?
06 Jan 14 UTC I hoped to get anything that will leave me across the line, but anyway other guys did nt make it. Sorry for dissapointing you, man from Michigan, I hoped that both Germany and Russia will stay alive.

Anyway, in 15 min its Christmas in my country... we are little behind the others. :)

Good game guys!
06 Jan 14 UTC I just don't understand your play. You're an experienced player, and you went all in against me when France was getting bigger and bigger.
07 Jan 14 UTC If you wanted to get across the line, why the destroy in Burgundy and leaving ST. Pets alive.

Merry Christmas Nikola -- slovak?
07 Jan 14 UTC Serbian!

I cant look back now, there was a good reason for it most probably. Thanks virtuslex, all the best to you and all around you! :)
07 Jan 14 UTC Thank you very much for very interesting game: interesting and aggressive (defense of EGI) in first part: Tsar, thank you for support! Surprised in second part.
Gents, I doesn't worry about WTA. Solo for me is more important. Italy, congratulation with 2nd place; Sultan, with 3rd!
One more? ;)
