Sorry for holding out on the draw for so long. I didn't want to reward Italy with a draw for his NMRing.
04 Oct 16 UTC Lol good game guys.
Russia in gunboat is a mystery yet to be solved for me.
04 Oct 16 UTC good game.
All the NMRs recently made me want to cancel. I agree about not rewarding someone that stops playing.
04 Oct 16 UTC Moscow - in general, I'd advise always opening to Galicia as Russia. Austria will more often than not go there too and when he's in Galicia he's in a great position to attack you.

Also - convoying to Sweden is a great move if you're confident England is onside and you want to go for Germany, but since England will not often be onside in gunboat it's not generally a good idea, especially if England's opened north like he did here.

I think those were the two major mistakes. You played the rest about as well as you could have done.
04 Oct 16 UTC Thanks for the advice - I'll keep it mind for next time.
