15 Aug 18 UTC gg... The french invade into Warsaw is 1911 when England was at 13 centers was a bit aggravating but it was fun :P
15 Aug 18 UTC Yeah good game but frustrating at the end. Was really looking to work with turkey from 1908 on. Also, Russia never had enough armies to make a stalemate and we couldn't organize together to make it work. Nice win England you took good advantage.
15 Aug 18 UTC Yeah, tough ending there. I wasn't quite sure how to help.
I tried to signal to Russia to move to Armenia so I could pop his fleet for it to be rebuilt.

I probably needed to try move Bulgaria->Rumania->Ukraine earlier but I didn't want to spook you guys.

Any Idea what I should have done there, Lando?
16 Aug 18 UTC I'm not really sure it was all left a little late. I think you should have committed to a course of action earlier - we could have tried to move through russia, for instance. but once it got tot the end (england in gal) there was nothing left to do. Russia had too few armies, we needed something else up there. France carrying extra centres he couldn't build on was an issue.
16 Aug 18 UTC Good game all. I feel like France kind of gifted me that one a bit by continuing to press the issue against Austria rather than fully committing to me, but it feels good all the same.
16 Aug 18 UTC Sorry for being a mess there in the end, everyone. Good game regardless.

Well, that's the last game I was still alive in for the tourney. All that's left to do is wait and see.
16 Aug 18 UTC no worries, gg.
