01 Oct 18 UTC Good game all, many thanks.
01 Oct 18 UTC GG man, I never could convince Poland to go against you till it was too late. But I've been in both of your positions too so that's just how it goes sometimes. May have had something to do with me moving as if I were attacking him. Really was just trying to eliminate any support for Germany.
01 Oct 18 UTC My hope was that you'd see Italy as the threat, and leave germany alone so he could help vs Italy instead of wasting his efforts fighting you.

Didn't work.

So - I thought in sum-of-squares, the points were divided ppsc...but that's only in a draw?

Is there any scoring system that divides points ppsc any more?
01 Oct 18 UTC Not on this site, but on the sister site vdiplomacy there is.
01 Oct 18 UTC Yes, in SoS the points are only divided on a draw.
01 Oct 18 UTC GG, well played. Congrats Italy!
01 Oct 18 UTC I would say I had plenty of time to KO Germany. No reason to keep him in the draw. I think Poland would have been better served to aid my progress through Germany before Italy could secure the area, and press south and east. We simply spent too much time before there was any trust. Such is the nature of gunboat games. Well played all around, and we'll done by Italy. Very tough to come out of a central position and take it down.
