Game drawn
21 Oct 16 UTC GG everyone
21 Oct 16 UTC Except Germany, of course.
21 Oct 16 UTC Good game, everybody! Darn...I was looking forward to supporting Austria into Moscow next turn...then Italy again...then Austria again...:D
21 Oct 16 UTC ze germans
21 Oct 16 UTC Lol red lion.
21 Oct 16 UTC You didnt care who dat there
21 Oct 16 UTC I kept trying to support Germany's Ruhr army into Munich but he never took it. :/
21 Oct 16 UTC gg wp all ... austria, we could've made a 2 or 3 way draw, but then again I guess the solo was too appealing xD
21 Oct 16 UTC lol Austria....I was trying hard to get you and Italy to turn on each other, starting with letting Italy walk into Moscow unopposed and holding you back in Warsaw and Ukraine. :D
21 Oct 16 UTC Germany never wanted Munich. He liked Iberia way more.
21 Oct 16 UTC I planned to stab eventually. But you guys were all too keen to stop me from winning lol
21 Oct 16 UTC I tossed a coin that Iberia was more likely to be part of the stalemate than Munich. It didn't land the right way, seemingly.
21 Oct 16 UTC yeah, Iberia changed quite a lot
21 Oct 16 UTC HR, why stab me after we took out England and when I showed a fleet build? There was minimal gain for you to stab me then as I had a good defensive position.
21 Oct 16 UTC lol Austria....I was trying hard to get you and Italy to turn on each other, starting with letting Italy walk into Moscow unopposed and holding you back in Warsaw and Ukraine. :D
21 Oct 16 UTC Your move to Picardy and the build of A-Par meant I'd have to keep half my units guarding my border from you. Way too militarised.
21 Oct 16 UTC France, I have a question: If the game had continued and Italy and Austria attacked each other, how would you have viewed a move from Baltic to Denmark followed by a build in a (hopefully) vacant St Pete? Would you have viewed that as a hostile act, a defensive act, or would you have attacked me anyway?
21 Oct 16 UTC Lol @Italian fleet in norwegian.
21 Oct 16 UTC Well played, I definitely wasn't ready for that Russia-Germany alliance at the beginning :P
21 Oct 16 UTC England, at least you have Finland. :D
21 Oct 16 UTC @ HR, Fair enough.

@Red, I wasn't in a position to attack you but it would have annoyed me. I would have moved Hol to North anyways and then focused on you once I secured Munich and Mar.
21 Oct 16 UTC yeah bb, that's why I was asking myself, why you would stab right now. I made a breakthrough and could pound on france/russia from there while we march north with our troops. we could duke it out afterwards too. but maybe I'm missing something you'd have considered.
21 Oct 16 UTC If anyone else wants to share what they would do in France's shoes, regarding my question above, I'd appreciate it.
21 Oct 16 UTC I just figured the map loves red. Theyd want red to win. Lol
21 Oct 16 UTC I don't get why you militarised the border so much anyway. I was already committing troops in another direction and then you start massing them on my border. Alas, that's life.
21 Oct 16 UTC Thanks for the answer, Pomagos. So I was probably your target anyway. That was my guess.
21 Oct 16 UTC What choo talkin' 'bout, Austria? I was on 4 units all gam-....oh...that's not what you meant.
21 Oct 16 UTC I wanted to make a line in pic and Bur to balance your units in Bel and Mun. My build in Mar and the supports I was giving you, along with moving Eng to Lon so that Bel wasn't threatened was supposed to show I had no intention of coming after you.
21 Oct 16 UTC So if the game had continued, my best move might have been...take Denmark and help Austria hold Munich lololol
21 Oct 16 UTC phew, russia, tough question. I think that would depend on how the troop behaved afterwards, since I think there would be a bigger threat from A/I at that time. But I too think that it wouldn't be appreciated, if I were france in that situation.
21 Oct 16 UTC @Red, only if I was safe from Italy. In this situation I had no intention of coming after you. I was going to move to North and then Push down to Iberia to secure a stalemate or get rid of the Italian fleet.
21 Oct 16 UTC I didn't see any reason you'd build in Paris instead of going with two fleets there unless you were coming after me.
21 Oct 16 UTC Italy, I breathed a huge sigh of relief when the game ended - really wasn't sure what I was going to do.
21 Oct 16 UTC @Pomagos so your next few moves would have taken a "wait and see" approach. I'd already forgotten the Italian fleet roaming around in the Norwegian Sea.
21 Oct 16 UTC I could say the same about army Mun instead of army Ber.
21 Oct 16 UTC With France on 9 SCs, he's not far behind Austria and Italy...which is why I thought hard about taking Denmark soonish.
21 Oct 16 UTC I was attacking Austria. Mun was going to go to Bohemia. I had no interest in weakening Russia when there was already a dangerous AI.
21 Oct 16 UTC yeah, after austrias stab I was too in thinking mode, what I need to do now to draw this game. I too was relieved that it didn't drag on for too long.
21 Oct 16 UTC I wanted to take back Iberia and Mar. That Italian fleet would have been a nuisance but it would have most likely been disbanded after he lost a center. After that, if the chance for a solo was there, I would have gone for Tunis or stabbed you, or both.
21 Oct 16 UTC Probably the balance of power would have swung back and forth several times...with my eventual elimination perhaps.
21 Oct 16 UTC Thanks for the answers, France. Much appreciated.
21 Oct 16 UTC @HR, would an army in Bre been less threatening? I only put it in Par since I didnt want another fleet but I see why you would think it was an aggressive move. In hindsight I should have built a fleet.
21 Oct 16 UTC @Red, no worries :)
21 Oct 16 UTC well, my next move would've been norwegian into edinborough, so disbanding wouldn't have been a too great issue, especially since I was in the position to take bulgaria. so hard to say what would've come out of it.
21 Oct 16 UTC A-Bre would be better, but I really didn't understand why you didn't go with two fleets tbh.
21 Oct 16 UTC na, red, I wouldn't have gone at you, you were in the position to defend norway and you helped me, so I would've gone against austria and a bit against france, but mostly austria. so you would't need to fear something from me.
21 Oct 16 UTC I wanted to do a convoy to North Africa from MAO so another army on the continent is always nice to have. I didnt see the need for another fleet as England was done and I could have built another one later on in Mar.
21 Oct 16 UTC Also, apologies to Turkey...I wanted to help him against the AI early on, but had no clue on how to do so. This was only my second game as Russia. :(
