Game won by Manwe Sulimo (630 D)
14 Jun 16 UTC Autumn, 1903: New England here, hate to see games die because of poor sportsmanship. I'm here until the end.
23 Jun 16 UTC Autumn, 1906: Eliminate Turkey and France and I'll draw
23 Jun 16 UTC Autumn, 1906: Constantinople is support moving the fleet in Black Sea to Ankara. Please use that support.
23 Jun 16 UTC Autumn, 1906: Works for me. Germany?
23 Jun 16 UTC Autumn, 1906: Yes, that's fine with me.
25 Jun 16 UTC Spring, 1907: Mid Atlantic will move to North Atlantic. If you move Wnglish Channel to the Irish Se and Belgium to the English Channel while Russia moves Norway to te Norwegian Sea, he will lose at least one center this year.
25 Jun 16 UTC Spring, 1907: Or the next year I suppose. We just have to keep closing in with the fleets.
25 Jun 16 UTC Spring, 1907: Ah the Wnglish Channel, the lesser known issue of the Brexit vote
26 Jun 16 UTC Spring, 1907: Oh yeah, no one knows what's going to happen to that. Better send markets down another 10%
26 Jun 16 UTC France left, so it's the three of us left, but I doubt Italy is going to click that draw button. ^^
26 Jun 16 UTC Don't see much incentive to when its pretty much impossible to stop me from soloing.
26 Jun 16 UTC I was hoping you'd go for the solo, just to teach Russia a lesson.
26 Jun 16 UTC Not really. Italy going for a solo has been the likely outcome for the last few years. I made a move to change that. It didn't work. You gave up and helped expedite his winning. Not sure I learned the "lesson" you hoped I would. I stand by my decision making and think it was sound. Yours however was petty and short sided.
26 Jun 16 UTC So you're saying that in 1904 you had to move into Berlin to avoid Italy from winning the game? Weakening the only player that could contest Italy over the Mediterranean areas?

What else could I do except giving up on a three-way draw and ensuring my survival?
26 Jun 16 UTC By giving up you had 0 chance at a favorable outcome for yourself meaning a draw.
26 Jun 16 UTC And I also made certain I'd avoid the worst outcome.

I had France fighting me like a trapped animal on my western flank, and you joined him by attacking my eastern flank. If I hadn't exposed my southern border by moving to Burgundy, Munich and Kiel would've fallen quickly.

And also, I made a threat (giving the solo to Italy if you'd attack me), so I had to keep my word. :-)
26 Jun 16 UTC Fair enough :)
26 Jun 16 UTC Good game everyone, I thought it would be a draw but was able to sneak into Rumania :)
