13 Dec 17 UTC Spring, 1909: I'm just gonna try to secure my 18. VEN isn't likely for me to hold.
13 Dec 17 UTC oh well
13 Dec 17 UTC gg Russia
13 Dec 17 UTC I went afk! Italy lost MAO? Nice work
13 Dec 17 UTC More like Italy randomly gave up MAO...
13 Dec 17 UTC That was silly of him
13 Dec 17 UTC Well played England.

You as well, Italy. You played a great game. I blew it for us by botching a couple orders.
13 Dec 17 UTC italy gave up MAO to try to hold off yall getting into gascony one for turn. yall didnt go for it tho. i miscalculated. then it was just stall till austria finished turkey. took too long, had to speed this thing along.
13 Dec 17 UTC well played England, I wish I hadn't been boxed in so much
13 Dec 17 UTC seriously gg all. these fast chats are fucking hard
13 Dec 17 UTC GG everyone.
13 Dec 17 UTC and my congrats to england
13 Dec 17 UTC whew, i had to pee
13 Dec 17 UTC Italy, you just needed to hold the line in the West. I could never have broken you if you'd just sat there support holding MAO. That's why I kept trying to push armies into the East.
Austria could eventually have finished off Turkey and stalmated the East, or they would have found peace and Turkey would have helped stalemate the game.
13 Dec 17 UTC Austria, you played a fine game. I'm not sure why you thought my solo was your fault.
13 Dec 17 UTC wrong england. all you need is an army in gascony to cut my fleet support from spain. then fleets in brest, eng, irish, and nao can overpower mao
13 Dec 17 UTC France, I'm sorry about your mistakes in the war against Italy. I hope you've looked at those and found some ways you can improve.
Something I think you didn't know this game:
If a unit attempts to move, all attempts to support hold it will fail, even if the unit doesn't actually move.
If you look at Autumn of 1903, you tried to support hold Spain while moving it into MAR. If you'd just had your army held, which I suspect you would have done if you'd known this rule, you would only have lost one center that year and would have been in much better shape this game.
13 Dec 17 UTC Nah, I know the rule! That was a poor misorder from live game jitters. I'm used to being able to take my time! I appreciate the advice. I didn't consider the portugal defense stalemate, it's never come up in my games.

Gg!
13 Dec 17 UTC You're correct Italy, I could have taken MAO, but where do I go from there?
Even with a fleet in MAO and an army in GAS, if you're in:
North Africa, W.MED, POR, Spain, MAR, and one of GoL or PIE, I can never break that line.
You have POR support hold Spain while PIE support hold MAR. I can never progress beyond that point into the South from the West.
If you look at the board, I could have taken MAO, but then you just retreat to fill the vacant spot in the South.
I would have needed to take Tyrolia and start tapping PIE in order to break you, and that's assuming Austria doesn't get a fleet into GoL to help hold the line. If he's there while you're in PIE, I simply can never break you in the West.
