03 Jan 15 UTC Sorry Ben ... I totally fucked up my moves and was supposed to go to the Aegean ... I never wanted to attack you ... but since i was there, I thought I'd try
03 Jan 15 UTC Bobua, that was pretty lame
03 Jan 15 UTC agreed
03 Jan 15 UTC Meh, I've done worse.
03 Jan 15 UTC team play ? thats like a noob
03 Jan 15 UTC An apology and good play from MM It's a New Year miracle

Talk about a tough sell to Turkey and Germany...

Austria good play and good gunboat-sense

England why not go NWG-NTH, NTH-HELIO once obvious he wasn't attacking NTH with me attacking SWE?
03 Jan 15 UTC agreed
03 Jan 15 UTC Bobua for 146 games over a year your RR and points and play demeanor seem to be lacking.
03 Jan 15 UTC england must north sea - denmark
03 Jan 15 UTC What are you talking about Valis?!? If I am at fault, and others deserve recognition, I give it ...
03 Jan 15 UTC sry valis for repeatedly failing to break the support from denmark. I was always thinking germany might just w8 for it in order to get into the North Sea
03 Jan 15 UTC russia really lucky guy, you played very worse
03 Jan 15 UTC others ( but not turkey) nice round , good night
03 Jan 15 UTC It's ok. I understand why you did it, I just feel it was the wrong choice. I don't mean to sound harsh about it; I favor aggressive play against run-away leads as seen by my moves anyway and not everyone does
03 Jan 15 UTC I was pondering about these moves all the time. But I really chickened out.
03 Jan 15 UTC *@England
03 Jan 15 UTC worse? you're only in the lead because France quit ... don't break your arm patting yourself on the back
03 Jan 15 UTC @MM just giving you a hard time you played fine and you deserve recognition.
03 Jan 15 UTC Not to self-pat myself too much but with Turkey still trying to get SC, leaving SEV/RUM open to go to STP to force you back took some balls...

not to mention correctly playing the attack on MUN/BER
03 Jan 15 UTC In general I favour aggressive play too. I was just to wary right away. The same goes for me not moving into Sweden in 1902. I first put in this choice but then again hoped Germany would assist when it seemed you were in for a juggernaut.
03 Jan 15 UTC not really ... I played terribly ... I meant to move to the Aegean, but mistakenly moved to the Adriatic (those damn A's) and then was in a weird position where it appeared I was attacking AH -- which I wasn't intending to do.
03 Jan 15 UTC @MM I really want to join the praise you got. Real good team play! I wish I was as helpful.
03 Jan 15 UTC I tend to default to Jugg in GB due to harder coordination by the west to stop it. It's a fair assumption especially when I made those moves in the beginning. Although Turkey never really signalled reciprocity to me and then Germany happened and Austria was both smart and willing to play ball after I gave a massive friendship signal of WAR s VIE-GAL and SEV-ARM and RUM s SER-BUL.
03 Jan 15 UTC Turkey was bit anxious to just make some moves, I guess… Damn, I hate this kind of NMR.
03 Jan 15 UTC I would do the juggernaut too in GB. That is why I hoped Germany would understand my signals that I were in for a WT. Then France left and Germany tried to mischievously to solo on it.
