11 Nov 16 UTC rip i'm bad sorry
11 Nov 16 UTC gg turkey
11 Nov 16 UTC phew, last second decision but phew that was close. gg wp
11 Nov 16 UTC Gg turkey.
11 Nov 16 UTC This is why you dont invade austria as italy.
11 Nov 16 UTC Thank Fra for your win Turkey
11 Nov 16 UTC I held back Turkey for ages with no help at all lol
11 Nov 16 UTC uh, brain, you were austria. Sorry to do that to you but since it was my first time I came so close I just HAD to try this solo.
11 Nov 16 UTC i punted hard in the last year.

i see the other game with the salty title. i think my strategic decisions were fine, but i fucked up tactics w/turkey in the last 3 turns that lost it. i will defend pressuring germany and trying for the solo as long as was feasible though
11 Nov 16 UTC Thats why you don't stab your ally when there's a looming threat of a solo from Turkey.
11 Nov 16 UTC I should have stuck with England.
11 Nov 16 UTC yeah, I was wondering "why don't they all just come to fight me"
11 Nov 16 UTC Because there was an idiot thats why
11 Nov 16 UTC Seriously poor play from France. You really thought you could get a solo lol?
11 Nov 16 UTC i would have helped you BB, but i was under attack from england, turkey and germany. i'm just sorry i couldn't bury germany as england was
11 Nov 16 UTC You play for the solo as long as possible while making sure you can fall back to a stalemate line if needed. I did that. I defend that.

My mistake was tactical. I misplayed very badly from A11-A12 and let Turkey get and retain Spain when I didn't need to.

But trying to play for a solo when it doesn't affect the ability to draw correctly is always correct.
11 Nov 16 UTC yeah I'm sorry about that too Brad
11 Nov 16 UTC but it did affect the ability to draw
11 Nov 16 UTC Other mistake was definitely being wishy washy the first 2 years. Not wanting to provoke anybody and just playing the "strongest defense leaving option open" then making a poor attack on Italy the same turn E/G decided I was fence-sitting too long. Need to be more decisive early
11 Nov 16 UTC at the beginning, I was looking "who could I ally with, oh, everyone attacks me" and then I just said to myself that I try it alone for once. It helped that austria and italy bashed together too (more like italy into austria).
11 Nov 16 UTC Congrats Turkey.
11 Nov 16 UTC I held back Turkey for ages with no help at all lol
11 Nov 16 UTC No, if I had played right in the Med, the rest didn't matter. For the purpose of drawing our units were just changing color in Germany. You had StP locked up.

If I don't play scared and hold in MAO and instead move to Port to maximize pressure on Spain (which was going to fall) we take it back this autumn and hold a line at 17
11 Nov 16 UTC Daniel left the game
11 Nov 16 UTC If
11 Nov 16 UTC Idk wtf Italy was doing but it definitely fucked everybody else up
11 Nov 16 UTC I tried to help you Austria but was busy fighting my 'ally' most of the time.
11 Nov 16 UTC When Turkey is in warsaw and in Italy... houston we have a problem
11 Nov 16 UTC Lol
11 Nov 16 UTC We didn't need to help Austria. 3-way was fine
11 Nov 16 UTC gl to those who are involved in the next game.
11 Nov 16 UTC my goal was to create choas sorry about having to leave my friend got into a car accident
11 Nov 16 UTC Worked out great, didn't it Fra?
11 Nov 16 UTC You are not being objective. Please try to step back and view the game less emotionally.
11 Nov 16 UTC I believe anyone who watched this game would objectively say you handed the game to Turkey/ over and out
11 Nov 16 UTC Again, not being objective. I've acknowledged my mistakes. You keep arguing, incorrectly, that because we lost every decision I made was wrong. You aren't going to learn anything from behavior like this.
11 Nov 16 UTC let it go we are playing another game
11 Nov 16 UTC No Italy lost us this game
11 Nov 16 UTC We had contain
