24 Nov 17 UTC My apologies for dragging this out. I thought I still had a solo shot as your defenses were incorrectly positioned, but apparently it wasn't even close.
24 Nov 17 UTC gg
24 Nov 17 UTC I played just too bad as Italy. I geot completely lost.
I don't want to hit austria from start, and going after france is suicide
On gunboat, I don't like the key lepanto for italy, though i should have invested on it.
I love gunboat for any power but Italy; I love Italy *with press* :)
24 Nov 17 UTC I did horribly setting the stalemate line in the North because I erroneously thought we would draw rather than fight it out. Should always know it aint over till its over.

GGWP guys - thank you.
24 Nov 17 UTC I was hoping Russia could break through in the North, so we could go for a 2 way draw, -if that's even a thing in gunboat. I never had a solo shot.

Also learned that I should time my moves better. A Pie - Tyr in spring was a bad idea, as France could free up Mar for a new build. It was pretty obvious, the support move from France was rather funny.

ggwp
24 Nov 17 UTC Which support move? What year are we talking about?
24 Nov 17 UTC autumn 1909
F Tus - Pie
24 Nov 17 UTC I was still under the impression I could break through untill then.
24 Nov 17 UTC Yes, I was very happy with that move! When I was able to secure my line there with 5 units (holding back 9 of yours), I felt like I could solo.
24 Nov 17 UTC I tried to give you the solo France. I felt like you didn’t want it for some reason
24 Nov 17 UTC I'm just not good enough to grab it :-( I'm working on it with my mentor, I think.
24 Nov 17 UTC I really wanted it, and I noticed that you were helping me to some extent. Even just by being present.
24 Nov 17 UTC Thanks, but I let you down.
24 Nov 17 UTC Whats the logic there Yoyo? Why france but not Russia?
24 Nov 17 UTC Because you were playing for a draw and trying to cut me out of it??? I'm not sure how you expected me to react.
24 Nov 17 UTC In that position the task is to make it too risky for either side to kill you off - I probably would've flip flopped to send a message, but thats a fair call too.
25 Nov 17 UTC Flip flopped?
25 Nov 17 UTC Helped one then the other ;)
25 Nov 17 UTC Right :)
