26 May 18 UTC Brilliantly awful play Russia, geez, I was the only one that was even trying to stop him... still fighting Austria to the end, eh, for what?

Good Game England.
26 May 18 UTC obvious threat of English solo as far back as 1905.... and dozens of turns of Russia doing nothing about it.
26 May 18 UTC Gg
26 May 18 UTC Pity we couldn't work together Germany.
26 May 18 UTC i tried to help you France... Just didn't have the manpower or support from my back lines against poachers...
26 May 18 UTC No worries, 2 v 1 screwed me anyway. My spring 1903 move was a poor gamble on my end and I wasn't expecting Germany to join in against me. Still. Gg
26 May 18 UTC Good game all. Not sure why the Russian did not address me as a solo threat. But thank you i guess
26 May 18 UTC I don't know why he didn't either. It was obvious, especially at the end when he built in Mos and headed south.
26 May 18 UTC it was long lost by then. Once England breached the med, i needed a fourth fleet, I needed an Austrian fleet to reinforce me. Four fleets are needed to defend Gibraltar and Tunis, I only had three. It was obvious Germany was going to fall, also obvious that Scan and Stp would eventually fall.

But Austria could not send me a fleet facing a constant Russian onslaught...

And Russia, by the way, taking Smyrna was a dumb move, as Italian forces were the only thing that stood between England and his solo, poaching my SC from the back is a dumb move. Just caused you to lose.
26 May 18 UTC but Austria, in 1907 you could have just sent me the fleet I needed and ignored turkey for a bit, and we could have held Tunis.
26 May 18 UTC in 1907 it was already crystal clear that we were facing an English solo.
26 May 18 UTC I waited on te north because the Russian never moved. I knew i could get st Pete. My concern was Tunis. But no one help the Italian in the med.
when Kiel fell i thought both Austria and Russia would move to defend Munich.
26 May 18 UTC I hope the Russian takes some time to answer why he let me win
26 May 18 UTC of course, stp is undefendable from the south, you can always wait until the end to grab it.

Notice that in the spring of 1905, yes 1905, and English fleet entered the med, this is a giant RED FLAG => English solo coming, alert, alert...

Italy, knowing this sent EVERY unit from that point on to try to get him out of the med, but three fleets is not enough...

Both France and Germany were fractured and clearly going to lose long term. Tunis was the only hope...
27 May 18 UTC congrats and yes strange why russia kept on fighting...for me it was over when austria decided to move against me
27 May 18 UTC Austria hit on Munich was a terrible idea. Handed England massive power. France was already crippled, Russia was ignoring England and the hit on Munich crippled and broke Germany. England had a free hand from that point on.
27 May 18 UTC If Austria wanted Russia as an ally he should have stopped the fighting himself way earlier then Munich
27 May 18 UTC that's true as well.
