16 Aug 17 UTC GG. Interesting relation we had, England ;)
16 Aug 17 UTC Yeah, gg. I'm pretty disappointed with my performance and the end result of this game. I really thought I was poised for a better finish, but not a lot happened how I expected it to. I anticipated you and Germany having a longer fight. Instead, Germany "retreated" to Norwegian instead of Helgoland and caused chaos for me. I guessed wrong on Russia's movements. Lost too much time and had nowhere to expand.

I was glad to see how quickly we got on board to set up the stalemate line vs Austria. But then got scared just as fast when you attempted to advance your position, jeopardizing it. Would have liked to see the draw reduced to 3 instead of 5, but oh well, it's an unranked game. Pleasure playing, and good luck to all of you in your future games.
16 Aug 17 UTC I guess Germany thought going to the stalemate line would allow them to stay alive because Germany itself could not be held. I'd have been happy to mop them up with you until you built a fleet in lvp instead of edi the year Germany retreated to Norwegian. It was a constant game of 'is England stabbing me?' and that built signalled to me the time had come, even though I built a fleet in mar, fully intending to beat up on Austria.

I agree I got a bit too frisky around mun/ber and with savvier moves from Austria, could have definitely lost the line there. My reasoning at the time was that the more pressure I put on Austria, the quicker we'd get a draw. To be honest I was quite surprised it took this long and was getting a bit nervous myself because I was making gains in former Italy while my rear was quite exposed to you. If I'd continue like this, you'd probably think I might try to solo which could then allow Austria to come back again. Fortunately the NMRs in the end destroyed his fleet so that there was basically no chance anymore (hence the draw, I guess).

If it wasn't unranked, I'd have certainly eliminated Italy and wait for Austria to eliminate Turkey, but right now I just wanted Austria to draw asap.

To me it seems you defeated Russia quite quickly, though. Too quickly even, because I hadn't been able to make much headway against Germany yet. Pretty sure that if I couldn't just walk into mun the first year I would not have been alive in the end hehe.

May we meet again ;).
16 Aug 17 UTC wait for austria to eliminate turkey? sorry bud, but turkey cannot be killed!
17 Aug 17 UTC I was the last person to draw. When Austria wasn't efficiently taking out Turkey(sorry Turkey) and then actually NMR'd at the end, I threw it up because now I was worried about two people. Although if you had made further advancement than that, I had full intentions to blow up the line.
17 Aug 17 UTC Ah, never thought it would be you who put in the last vote. To be honest I kinda lost interest when I found out I had accidentally joined an unranked game. I did toy with the idea of just trying to solo when Austria NMR'd becaused I couldn't lose anything anyway, but that seemed just a waste of time. If you didn't draw at this point I would have simply support held everything or move such that I could hold the line indefinitely after.
17 Aug 17 UTC Yeah, I didn't want to run that risk. I'll settle for a 5-way and some unhappiness than running the risk of my neighbor soloing.
