29 Apr 15 UTC Spring, 1909: You guys realize that I was the only chance we had at beating Ted
29 Apr 15 UTC Spring, 1909: That is really upsetting
29 Apr 15 UTC Spring, 1909: Not true. You and Germany needed to work together. Either that or y'all could have gone to the link I posted at the get-go of the game and created the Sealion alliance. Then you would have wrecked me.
The key turning point of the game was when I stabbed France obviously, but I only was able to do so because France was indecisive. France would not straight up attack me, nor would they attack Italy. This meant that they just lukewarmly attacked Germany and sent a few units south. But, in order for England and France to be able partners, England HAS to be able to take the northern centers while France HAS to take the southern centers. This is the same for all games as England, however, since no matter what England is required to move Southeast once it gets Scandinavia. France, the best country on the map, can build fleets in the North and the South which gives them he liberty to pick where to grow. This gives France all of the power in the alliance of France/England. They know that England will be bottled up if France controls from Kiel to Brest. If France occupies MAO and the Eng Channel, then this should guarantee them a defeat over England since they can attack all sides of England's territory.
So, if you remember when England took Kiel in this game, you will realize that that exact move changed the game. France went from a guaranteed victory, to an up for grabs fight.
Hopefully this helps y'all in future games! :D
