13 Oct 15 UTC Grats Xorxes, well played. :-)

Hey, uh, eastern half of the board... What happened to counting centres? German solo has been kinda obvious for maybe 4 years? Nobody wanted to try for a stalemate line? Ah well.
13 Oct 15 UTC Indeed. You had one serious tunnel vision there Ayreon - would have needed to move your fleets westwards years ago to be able to keep Germany in check.
13 Oct 15 UTC Austria you've fought me from the start allied with Germany so I cannot send west my units. I hoped that France and Russia were more resilient to Germany.
13 Oct 15 UTC More like I had to defend myself against your constant aggression.
And while I concur that my spring 1910 move certainly wasn't perfect, it would have been all too easy for you to move your fleets westwards while still being able to protect Venice if you so choose.
13 Oct 15 UTC It was obvious we weren't going to be four whole game years ago. Believe me, I wish it wasn't the case, but it was. Not like we had magic spare units to resist with.
13 Oct 15 UTC Why? All that we needed were two fleets in WesternMed and NorthAfrica, and Germany wouldn't have been able to get Portugal/Spain. There was ample time to get those fleets into position.
Furthermore, keeping Germany out of Moscow/Warsaw would have been doable too.
13 Oct 15 UTC @Maettu Oh yes. I was referring to the fact that Russia and myself weren't going to be able to resist Germany without *some* level of outside assistance. Certainly doable with an extra unit or two, that being rather the point of my complaint. :-/
13 Oct 15 UTC (Not to discount Xorxes' play, of course, but that solo was entirely predictable and stoppable from the end of 1908, and only really became truly definitely unstoppable this game year.)
13 Oct 15 UTC i, who never misorder, misordered in 1901. stupid stupid stupid. but i'm sure glad everyone else lost to germany.
13 Oct 15 UTC I think the turning point was S10 when Turkey ordered CON-BUL instead of CON-SEV, SEV-UKR. At that point I was pretty sure I would win, because I didn't see that the coordination needed to stop me was going to happen.
13 Oct 15 UTC thanks all!
14 Oct 15 UTC @Zmaj Hehe, I remember looking at that English misorder in 1901 and having a bit of a jaw drop moment. Very ouch. :-/

@Xorxes Yeah, the two powers that really needed to stop you... pretty much didn't. Ah well, your profit, our loss. :-)
14 Oct 15 UTC Congrats Germany. Well played.
