18 Aug 18 UTC Good game all!
18 Aug 18 UTC Looks like I was the only one that hadn't voted to draw! Russia, can I ask, whyyy did you turn against me at the end there?
18 Aug 18 UTC Also, Germany, did you miss my peace offer in Spring, 1912 or did you just not want to take it?
18 Aug 18 UTC Good game all!

Sry turkey, could not let you win :-)
18 Aug 18 UTC Turkey played a mean game! Congrats! I think we would have lost eventually I think if you hadn't voted to draw...
And France, thank you for working together, and sorry we lost Italy... Also, can I ask, what happened in Spring, 1909? Were you just trying to help Germany out, or were you just trying to expand?
18 Aug 18 UTC Quite easy, I knew that I need a partner with armys to stop Turkey and turn around the game. And I saw, as long as you and Germany fight against each other, Turkey will grow. So It was the logical choise to help Germany that he can help me via land against Turkey :-)
18 Aug 18 UTC Ok then, I thought that was it! :) Once you offered peace to me I offered it to Germany too, and moved in position to help him against Turkey, but he didn't want to stop or didn't understand, unfortunately, which gave Turkey even more time to fortify...
18 Aug 18 UTC Good game, guys!
18 Aug 18 UTC Germany was in a dilemma. Being peace to England and France at the same time and using all of armies to deal with Turkey is just too risky in a long term. At the end of the day, Germany will be invaded by one of cornered armies (England, France or Turkey). Then he chose to fight with the smallest country - England. I guess
20 Aug 18 UTC That makes sense; he didn't want to accept being a "prisoner to my benevolence". In hindsight that would have still been a better choice for him, but I can see why it wouldn't be appealing.
20 Aug 18 UTC The only viable route I had was to try deal with England by some miracle then set up a stalemate line with whoever was still alive
20 Aug 18 UTC Ok! At the time I was actually very ready to work with you in the medium-long-term!...
I was satisfied with my position and actually wanted to help you hold Berlin when I inadvertently "pulled" you in. (I thought Turkey was headed for it). Going by how quickly France trusted my peace offer I expected you would too.
Earlier I'd even put out an invitation to move your fleet to your coastline (in the form a support move from Edinburgh for Norwegian-North Sea), and was even planning to trust you to cross Denmark... So I was really surprised (and kinda irrationally hurt, haha) when you went for Liverpool instead of at least going south to help France out!
