13 Dec 16 UTC Thanks for ending this finally
13 Dec 16 UTC Should have been a 4-way draw.
13 Dec 16 UTC Maybe 3-way if you guys could figure out a way to eliminate me.
13 Dec 16 UTC Really fun game!

France, after your second stab I'd made up my mind to pick away at your backside rather than help you force a stalemate. I actually did have a lot of fun facing off with you though.

Russia, I was actually trying to help you at the end there but I guess that last poke at Moscow was one time too many ;). Can't say I blame you lol.

Congrats on the win Turkey, although we definitely could have stalemated you if I'd played along.
13 Dec 16 UTC I hope you had fun England, because nobody else did
13 Dec 16 UTC How the fuck were you trying to help by taking MOS? Are you serious? I had the ability to slow turkey Way down. He could have taken BUD, but it would have been a long slog for him to get any more from me. By taking MOS, you forced a disband that was going to completely break open the line no matter what I did, so I decided I was going to get a survive rather than a defeat by running straight North.
13 Dec 16 UTC Well I was trying to bounce you back to Ukraine, but there wasn't really a way to communicate that. If you look at the big map on the next phase, you'll see I tried to support you. Probably not the best plan, and in a non-live game I probably would have made a different decision.
13 Dec 16 UTC I pretty much already knew that I was going to let Turkey solo though
13 Dec 16 UTC Why? Why would you throw away a draw?
13 Dec 16 UTC Again an "I could have stopped everything if I wanted to but I just didn't feel like it..." crap. Yeah good, great diplomacy pro move England
13 Dec 16 UTC I mostly meant AFTER taking Mos though. I agree that wasn't the best move, but there was still a chance for a stalemate even after that. I figured even if I ended up taking Mos, the result would probably be turkey grabbing a bunch of centers and France being forced to completely abandon our front
13 Dec 16 UTC Wait England, You're seriously saying you expected me to move UKR to bounce you from MOS, after you were in StP for three years and hadn't attack MOS? Why would I know magically that THIS was the turn you were going to attack MOS.

13 Dec 16 UTC Objectives change throughout a game. It normally follows a solo->draw->survive progression, but sometimes something else jumps in. My objective path throughout the game ended up being solo->any draw->two way with France->solo->screwing with France

So I mean, I achieved my remaining objective of screwing with France which I'd long ago placed above drawing.
13 Dec 16 UTC I really did enjoy this game, but I suppose I understand if you guys are slightly salty
13 Dec 16 UTC So Turkey finally pulled it out, I see.
13 Dec 16 UTC Really enjoyed playing with italy, really good player, i have been lucky when i took budapest with the retreat that was a real sliding doors moment
