07 Mar 16 UTC [Russia]:GG Frollo.
Feldron, why were you his patsy the entire second half of the game when it was clear he was going to Solo?
07 Mar 16 UTC [Quebec]:Yeah, i wonder that too.
07 Mar 16 UTC [Libya]:Me too - he was firm in holding West Africa SCs.
07 Mar 16 UTC [Near-East]:Annoying game for me. Russia was a real pain! Well done oz...
07 Mar 16 UTC [Russia]:You did manage a survive with 0 SCs. That's some cause for happiness.

Europe was a real pain for me early, and then Quebec tried to follow up as Europe retreated. If Quebec had left me alone, I would have left you alone, N-E. You were my only realistic expansion path. :/
07 Mar 16 UTC [Russia]:I kind of felt that Quebec was leaving Argentina alone, expecting Arg would turn against Oz. Never happened. :P
07 Mar 16 UTC [Quebec]:Yeah, sorry Russia, I should have continued to work with you, but my impatience got the best of me.

On the other hand, Lybia had done the same to me, opprtunistically seizing something and betraying an active alliance. Why, Lybia?

But, of course, all the mistakes are my own, and I have missed a chance to face Oz earlier. I was too obsessed with attacking Argentina.
07 Mar 16 UTC [Libya]:Because I needed everything available on the front line vs. Oz. Arg was no help - see above.
07 Mar 16 UTC [Europe]:Yeah, twas unfortunate you and I had to but heads early Jeff. Made it tricky for either of us to gain a foothold.
07 Mar 16 UTC [Oz]:Good game, guys. It seems that one of the most difficult moments for me was the starting battle with Frozen Antarctica (it's always a war between FA and Oz on this map). After a long fight that I was no more than a regional player. An alliance with Argentina in Antarctica leaved me with no opponents and allowed to choose the strategy. I tried Africa but this was difficult. Luckily, an exhausting war between India and China allowed to attack India when the Indostan was empty. After that the invasion in Asia was easy.
07 Mar 16 UTC [Oz]:By that time I became the third power after Quebec and Argentina. However, they attacked each other and I was able to maintain a peace with both of them. For them, there were no reasons to attack me at that time since the outcome of 2 vs 1 is rather predictable. It allowed me to attack weaker opponents and become stronger.
07 Mar 16 UTC [Oz]:I made a mistake by offering an alliance to Libya who refused it. If I took Ethiopia in 2013 instead, it could be much easier for me in Africa.
07 Mar 16 UTC [Oz]:At that time I was afraid that Quebec and Argentina will sign a peace treaty. Luckily, that never realized. Quebec proposed it to Arg for the first time and attacked me in 2015 when I was already strong enough and reached Bering Straight and Arctic Circle. I could have serious problems if Argentina joined a coalition against me right in 2015 but once again this did not happen.
