19 Jan 18 UTC [Oz]:Congrats on the solo, Quebec.

Libya, I'm curious to know, what was your goal in this game, and did you achieve it?
19 Jan 18 UTC [Quebec]:GG all, I enjoyed the competition. Yes, Oz, the moves by Libya certainly aided the solo.
19 Jan 18 UTC [South-Africa]:I could have sworn we'd have a draw in this game much earlier on, but the stalemate line never got put up properly. gg Quebec
20 Jan 18 UTC [Ghana]:Congratulations to Sweetwatersam.
A well deserved outright win.
It could have been prevented & really should have been prevented, but I fear some players are not yet experienced enough to focus on the big picture & were overly concerned with protecting their own corner or increasing their share of supply centers, which was not condusive to preventing an outright win.
20 Jan 18 UTC [Russia]:ghana was in a prime position to resist quebec as they quickly devoured their second continent, but they were too focused on increasing their share of my supply centers. so take what they say about the big picture with a grain of salt. ;)

also, congrats quebec!
20 Jan 18 UTC [Russia]:of course, ghana also fell victim to someone else's NMRs and a opportunistic sub so take what i say with a grain of salt too.
20 Jan 18 UTC [Oz]:Ghana had one or two key NMRs of their own.

Peace and cooperation between Ghana and South Africa surely would have made a draw more viable.

And my failure to fully finish off the original India didn't help matters. I skirmished in the Pacific as long as I could but with my strategic errors in Africa and India a line wasn't possible.
20 Jan 18 UTC [Quebec]:Thanks Lord Duke!
