1 days /phase (normal)
Pot: 10 D - Autumn, 1906, Finished
Game won by Mercy (1121 D)
07 Oct 17 UTC Autumn, 1902: Well, that's what I get for changing my orders right before phase turn. I shouldn't doubt myself
13 Oct 17 UTC Spring, 1904: That went bad for me in Germany.
13 Oct 17 UTC Autumn, 1904: You've been crushing me everywhere else in both games, so I guess I earned myself a lucky break haha
14 Oct 17 UTC Autumn, 1904: Oh thats so ballsy
16 Oct 17 UTC Spring, 1906: You know, I thought you readied because you saw the guaranteed win. Convoy Holland to Edi, Ionian to take Smyrna, all support holds on Venice and you're guaranteed the victory
16 Oct 17 UTC Spring, 1906: But, regardless, this game is yours. I'll let you into Greece and Warsaw
16 Oct 17 UTC Spring, 1906: Please do me a favor this time and actually beat xorxes. It would be so depressing if we both lost twice in a row to the same people
17 Oct 17 UTC GG. Well played! :)

No, I didn't see that I had a guaranteed win. It was a bit more complicated than you said though, because you could've moved Trieste to Adriatic Sea and an army into Trieste, which I had to take into account.
To be honest, I basically stopped thinking in this game once I saw that I had 13 and you 8 supply centers. This was the reason for my early readying as well; I didn't take the time to think too much about it anymore anyway. :p
Thank you for being honest about conceding and not giving me the same treatment you gave that poor Ezio in gameID=198794.

Uhu, I will try to beat xorxes... twice. No pressure or anything here, right? :p
17 Oct 17 UTC Heheh, gotta be honest with people enough that they'll believe you when you fake it :)
17 Oct 17 UTC There was really no need to fake it here. I was soundly beaten no matter what
17 Oct 17 UTC I lost in autumn 1902
