01 Oct 18 UTC So, that didn't work out so well. GG, England! I had you on the run, but klugded my orders at just the wrong time. Great comeback!
01 Oct 18 UTC Whoa, well done Theoneandonly! I feared you most from the beginning of the game, having played 1v1s against you too...
01 Oct 18 UTC If I can ask about something way back in the beginning of the game: Austria, why did you turn against me out of the blue in 1907? Was it something I did, or was I just a peace offering to Turkey?...
01 Oct 18 UTC Thanks and good game! I didn't expsect that I would come back.
01 Oct 18 UTC I don’t really play very much gunboat so don’t read too much into it. I don’t really get all the small subtleties...

I just wanted to get big enough to have a shot at a draw tbh. I also didn’t look far enough ahead to realise I’d get totally stuck at around 12 centres. Plus I judged Turkey as being too strong for me to take at that time.
01 Oct 18 UTC Really impressive game from Theoneandonly, completely wrote you off once France landed in England.
01 Oct 18 UTC GG
01 Oct 18 UTC Austria gave victory to England, I must tell
01 Oct 18 UTC Yeah, that probably wasn't the wisest course. There was no way for you to defeat Turkey even if England left you alone; you didn't have the fleets to force the Bosporus. All you had to do was hold the line in Germany while England and Turkey squeezed me out of the draw.
01 Oct 18 UTC I felt I was very very vulnerable to Turkey in the western med and Italy and vulnerable to England around the Ruhr honestly I just didn’t know what else to do. Around 1913-1915 I totally ran out of ideas.
01 Oct 18 UTC Maybe I should have tried to hold as you say.
02 Oct 18 UTC OK, was a GG, I liked it
02 Oct 18 UTC Me too, lots of back and forth. GG all
