23 Dec 16 UTC What a strange game. We probably should have cancelled with two players missing but in the end it was a fun and interesting game.

Well played to England and Austria - I think there were a few unlucky guesses for each of you and a few missed opportunities.

To Germany and Italy... why would you pinch centres off me? Just because it's gunboat doesn't mean strategic play doesn't matter... that theft of Bulgaria in particular was just horrible :(

In any case, see you all again sometime :)
23 Dec 16 UTC Yeah, it was certainly interesting. Also some good experience too, seeing as I've never actually survived to a stalemate line.
23 Dec 16 UTC Sorry all for missing that first phase - probably helped springboard England a bit early. Still enjoyed holding on to Paris until the bitter end
23 Dec 16 UTC Sad that Germany went into CD. They were a great ally before that.
23 Dec 16 UTC First of all, let me apologize for missing phases. My Uber Eats came and I got distracted :)

Russia: I turned south and started poaching centers in an attempt to both hasten England's growth and plant myself along the stalemate line. If I fought England for too long, I was afraid I would get wiped out and you guys would form the line without me. I thought I'd have a better chance of hanging on with one unit in either Berlin or Warsaw. I could have done it better if I'd had longer to think about my moves, but I stand by my strategy
23 Dec 16 UTC Yeah England, we had a good thing going
23 Dec 16 UTC Germany I supported you several times to Kie and supported your hold in Kie. Learn to read the orders after moves so you know who is helping you.
23 Dec 16 UTC Russia, I was in the same boat as Germany. I wanted England's growth to be promoted quickly, and felt I should try to disrupt the east enough to make England think he had a shot, and force us to stalemate him. Also, if I remember correctly, there was a less than zero chance that might have given me a build, which would have been very, very nice. Sadly, that didn't pan out.
23 Dec 16 UTC I saw it Germany, but I didn't want to be in Kiel. You had only one army bordering that center and I didn't think you'd commit more forces to holding me there. I thought I'd have a better chance of surviving in Berlin or Warsaw.
23 Dec 16 UTC Austria*

I'm Germany
23 Dec 16 UTC Fair enough, Italy. I think there were only ever going to be two people holding the line but you obviously saw it differently. I thought before Bulgaria it would be you and I... afterwards it was obviously Austria and someone - at least from my perspective.
23 Dec 16 UTC Oh, my chances of getting into any draw were always horrible. My best shot was to barricade myself in the Turkish centers, and hold to block everyone off, and just not mess with anyone. I just figured I would play for the scenario that gives me a small chance, as opposed to not chance whatsoever.
