Game drawn
26 Sep 16 UTC [Oz]:Good job Kenya and US in first blocking me, and then rolling me back. Couldn't tell if you were voting to draw but based on wait and see pattern of Kenya (by the way I was quite flummoxed by the retreat to Africa, as I had not realized it could be held without controlling key surrounding maritime zones) and what I can only interpret as an exasperated move by the US to coax me into a draw, including that spectacular beachhead in Siberia, I thought I shouldn't take my chances and spend years stabilizing a front to then draw. Then again, we'll never know how things would have turned out if I had not messed up twice by mixed up east Siberia and east Siberian sea in my orders.

So long story short, kudos.
26 Sep 16 UTC [USA]:Hey! GG Everyone. Oz, I saw your eyes getting really big when you decided to contest me in Europe instead of ending the game, so I thought I'd shut the door on you before you wasted too much time. Which meant I had to kill all your fleets in the north and lock you out. Every else was a pretty secure stalemate line.

I kinda did the same thing with Kenya earlier this game in South America, so don't take it personally.

I don't like rolling over easily, as everyone who touched North America with any units learned...

Kenya, that was the most beautiful move on Argentina mid/late game that I've had the chance of watching.
26 Sep 16 UTC [USA]:My convoy to Spring 2023from Guyana to Yakutsk was really fun.
26 Sep 16 UTC [Russia]:Yeah go guys, I came in when there were only 5 or6 as Russia, and loved every second but decided to let you guys have the big W seeming as it was only a matter of time before I fell, I just admired how much time it must have taken to get this far and knew I didn't deserve it for coming in so late. But great game regardless
