27 Jan 18 UTC well played good game
27 Jan 18 UTC Only by you, and maybe me. England and Russia basically made sure you won.
29 Jan 18 UTC GG.

Except for the missed orders (sorry about that, was away for the weekend and totally forgot) in the final year, I don't really see what I should have done differently.

England abandoning his homecenters and hoping to survive (?) in Den/Swe was unfortunate for you and very helpfull for France.

I identified Fra as threat as early as 1905, moved to norwegian sea with my fleet in hopes to pressure Fra from the north and moved my southern front to pressure Austria because Italy needed to be able to defend against France as well.

In my opinion Turkey is more or less to blame for giving France the win. Taking all my centers so I could not defend Berlin and support Munich and at the sametime letting France take Italy & Tunis.
If Turkey would have focused more on the Med and Austria we would have gotten to a stalemate I think. Now Turkey maximized his centres and lost as a result.

Also, I don't understand you leaving Munich in 08. That was the only center you could hope to survive with.

It remains very difficult to communicate well in gunboat. Didn't have any understanding with any of my neighbours at any time.

Still a good game, I enjoyed it.

Congrats to Lord Wolf.

Cya around
29 Jan 18 UTC Your attack on me in 1903 and England basically let France roam freely. You might have seen the threat in 04, but you made it so in 03. Taking Berlin only helped you shortly. It helped France from the moment you moved to Silesia.
