Game drawn
19 Oct 14 UTC The moment you stopped, I stopped as well.
France and I stopped fighting long back to focus on Turkey. I thought you would get the hint as well.
19 Oct 14 UTC but really, shadow, how many times did you plan to retreat to yorkshire?
19 Oct 14 UTC it's a pity when people leaves the game, but it was too long
19 Oct 14 UTC Bullshit Sh@dow ... all you had to do was pay me back for supporting you into Sweden by helping me into St. Pete so I could open up Russia
19 Oct 14 UTC Dude you stabbed me in Belgium. You attacked me first. And then we just went back and forth non stop for 12 years. Haha. Anyway, I wanted peace. I was waiting for you to stop.
19 Oct 14 UTC tiagox, you played well. but you were helped by enormously stupid austria and italy
19 Oct 14 UTC I was playing at a birtyday full of people around, so it was a real challenge for me haha
19 Oct 14 UTC Exactly ... you kept fucking around in the North Sea and York, all you had to do was destroy that unit and build an army, but NO you build ANOTHER fleet to come after me. WTF?
19 Oct 14 UTC see you soon guys!
19 Oct 14 UTC I took STP for myself agreed. But you were so irritated about that that you didn't stop fighting me for 12 years?
19 Oct 14 UTC I stabbed u because you OWED me in St. Pete for Sweden... then took it ... then came back towards the North Sea ... you were NOT an ally
19 Oct 14 UTC enormously stupid Austria... I guess its what you get for missing the first turn. Thx for the insult, I appreciate...
19 Oct 14 UTC lol in fact, i had the impression germany was a little crazy, so i kept armies in pic and brest just in case
19 Oct 14 UTC Yeah, I kept fucking around because you were playing like you were baying for my blood.
If you had made even one peaceful move, I would have stopped.
Observe how I did that the moment you moved out of Denmark towards the end.
And I did the same with France as well.
19 Oct 14 UTC You shouldn't have taken St. Pete, I should have ... and you came back at me ... then you fucked around over and over all the while Turkey was growing because AH was a moron
19 Oct 14 UTC austria, you fucked up royally. turning against dead italy when turkey was gobbling you up
19 Oct 14 UTC Anyway, this was my first real gunboat. Only played press games before. So I'm sorry if I didn;t get the message sometimes.
19 Oct 14 UTC All I wanted was to go through St. Pete ... you didn't help ... that was wrong ... and worse, you kept trying to take the fucking North Sea and kept after me ... YOU were the issue, not me
19 Oct 14 UTC Russia wasnt doing anything against Turkey, there was no way I could resist. Instead of doing nothing with Sev, just by hitting Blac Sea it would still be a stalemate
19 Oct 14 UTC Russia also spent FIVE years making the same failed move into Norway and Silesia instead of hitting Turkey.
19 Oct 14 UTC well anyway it turned out well in the end
19 Oct 14 UTC Russia was active in the south, than nothing, he's the one that let Turkey expand.
19 Oct 14 UTC Your message was a big fat "FUCK YOU" when you took St. Pete AFTER I supported you into Sweden. You were greedy, and then came after me in Belgium, the North Sea, and even on my island. You were keeping me from expanding and then expected me to be your friend?
19 Oct 14 UTC England - as I said, my only mistake was maybe taking STP. But that was NOT an attack on you. That was me taking a free SC
Then YOU came after me. YOU stabbed me in Belgium. Thats when the war started. Obviously I went on the aggressive after that against you. And you never made a peaceful move so I couldn't turn off the heat ever either.
19 Oct 14 UTC and someone should congratulate me for surviving 1903-1904 while being attacked from three sides
19 Oct 14 UTC you did well indeed!
19 Oct 14 UTC Seriously. Congrats on that defence. The first two moves - especially the block in Gascony against me was awesome.
19 Oct 14 UTC why thank you! you don't seem so stupid any more
19 Oct 14 UTC Bullshit! St. Pete wasn't "free" it was the ONLY place I was going to expand and you knew (or should have known) it ... You were growing rapidly, especially after I interceded in Sweden on your behalf ... but you offered NO reciprocity ... you were greedy. I stabbed you in Belgium because it was the only place you allowed me to expand. Where else was I supposed to go?
19 Oct 14 UTC If I had taken Gascony, you were dead. But you guessed right and blocked me twice and then got the build to solidify the defence after that.
19 Oct 14 UTC Well, at that time I thought we were both attacking France together. So thats where you were going to go. But both Italy and you backed off France.
19 Oct 14 UTC I was fighting a desperate three front war against France, England and Russia for a goof 5-6 years.
19 Oct 14 UTC and germany, i was bathing in cold sweat when you moved to gulf of bothnia in the end. thankfully you knew what you were doing
19 Oct 14 UTC Just admit that you were greedy and you made no attempt to repay me for helping you grow in Sweden.
19 Oct 14 UTC lol but england, germany was right in that you should have attacked me in 1903. it was a golden opportunity
19 Oct 14 UTC @England - I agree I was greedy in taking STP Ive said that many times. But you went to war with me. The continuous never ending was started by you and the stop button was also in your hands but you never pressed it.

@France - You think I'm stupid but I was thinking the same as well. I dunno what you expected me to do. If you look at my moves from Burgundy - I stopped attacking you after the first 2 tries at Gascony. It took you a long time to get the hint and leave me alone as well.

Also, as I said - first gunboat
19 Oct 14 UTC It turned out to be ... but it was obvious to me that after he took St. Pete ... he was going to try to take Norway and to screw me
20 Oct 14 UTC So apologies for the mistakes.
20 Oct 14 UTC i'm going to sleep, good night and good game. it was interesting
20 Oct 14 UTC All you had to do was destroy your fleet and build and army and I would have backed off and gone after Russia/Turkey from the North ... but you KEPT retreating to the North Sea/Yorkshire ... YOU didn't hit the stop button especially when you built ANOTHER fleet
20 Oct 14 UTC No, I wouldn't have done that (screw you in Norway) while fighting France and Russia already. I had no intention of starting a 3 front war. I didn't expect you to get so mad over STP. I thought the French incentive was too tempting.
20 Oct 14 UTC Listen man - HOW am I to know that you would have backed off if I destroyed that fleet?
If I destroyed the fleet and you came after me, then I'd be fucked. You had shown ZERO signs of peace, so I had no choice but to fight you as hard as I could.
20 Oct 14 UTC Look at my positions for those years. I was simultaneously fighting Russia, you and France. You think I wanted to fight a 3 front war or what? I was so badly overstretched. I wanted peace with you quite desperately.
20 Oct 14 UTC and you showed zero sign that you were ever going to move against Turkey ... What incentive in france ... I had no real position ... it was one for one SC ... i gave you Sweden ... you give me St. Pete ... what's so hard about that?
20 Oct 14 UTC Your conquering of Denmark was also a damn good move. I was so mad at myself for letting that happen.
20 Oct 14 UTC You had a fleet in EC - the French incentive was to mvoe to MAO and then easily conquer Brest, Portugal and Spain while leaving Paris and Mar to me.
20 Oct 14 UTC I showed zero signs of moving against Turkey?? The only chance I had I sent a solitary army south to Tyrolia, Bohemia etc to try and help France.
Did you not see that?
20 Oct 14 UTC Anyway, lets end this. Good game, well played - Look forward to playing with you again :)
20 Oct 14 UTC Since it's your first GB game, I'll cut you some slack. But, you have to understand that I was reaching out to you with Sweden, and was expecting reciprocation. When I saw you bring up two units I thought you were sharp, when you took it, I thought you were a greedy bastard.
20 Oct 14 UTC You could have built another army, but built a fleet ... very telling
