19 Oct 18 UTC Good game France and Germany. Turkey, I hold my sword upright and salute you. I really had a hard time breaking your defense.
19 Oct 18 UTC well, when Italy decides to do a Lepanto in 1906 with Austria at 9 SC, i mean really, seriously?

Sure, Lepanto in 1902 or 1903 when Russia is still a viable fighting force to counter balance out Austria, but in 1906 when Russia is already dead was just idiotic. And then of course, you cut him off and left him their to die in Syria, such a brutal and well deserved crippling of Italy, duh, just a plain dumb move by Italy. Prior to that, we had a chance had Italy recognized the obvious threat.

Oh well.
19 Oct 18 UTC Even worse, Austria had already built a second fleet and was in the Adriatic sea when Italy decides to do a Lepanto??? Complete lunacy.
19 Oct 18 UTC Normally Valis plays a good game, can't imagine what he was thinking then. But I do acknowledge that my game was facilitated by Italy's 'friendship'.
19 Oct 18 UTC Italy was in a pickle with my going back and forth between him and Italy. He was afraid to commit and when he did it was very late.

But to be honest if he went sooner I would have hit him instead of England.
19 Oct 18 UTC *England
19 Oct 18 UTC 1) I was just having fun
2) England switched paths as soon as I committed making it EGI vs F to I vs F, and guess what I don't win that. What do you want me to do in that circumstance?!
19 Oct 18 UTC Sorry, maybe Germany stabbed England first, same difference for my game
19 Oct 18 UTC um... you went for France spring 1901...
19 Oct 18 UTC Helped me get a no build 1901. Much appreciated
19 Oct 18 UTC yes, that's the point. I went after France S01, and so did Germany and England, so I thought it would be fine, and then one of them decided to stab the other, so it was just me, and I couldn't win that fight, so I had to change directions. Don't know why you're making me repeat myself.
19 Oct 18 UTC and then full blast Italian attack on France , which almost never works early on, then a few turns later full retreat away, I mean, whats the point of all that?
19 Oct 18 UTC I wanted to try it out, sue me.
19 Oct 18 UTC and so then how does this all lead to the decision to Lepanto in 1906? More random fun that got you killed?
19 Oct 18 UTC I'm not interested in engaging with someone who won't read what I wrote.

Feel free to leave me advice on what I should have done in 1906 and I'll make sure to print it out and put it through my shredder.
19 Oct 18 UTC Yes great game everyone. Glad we could work together France.
19 Oct 18 UTC No need Italy, Austria already provided the supreme "Shredder" when he took Ionian Sea and left two of your units hopelessly cut off away from the defense of your home SC. consider the shredding already complete!
19 Oct 18 UTC Agreed Germany. It was a great alliance for sure. Especially for a gunboat.
