04 Oct 18 UTC Spring, 1903: Turkey is behaving with the sensitivity of a sex-starved boa-constrictor.
04 Oct 18 UTC Spring, 1903: I think that's an apt description.
09 Oct 18 UTC Autumn, 1906: I'm assuming we don't wanna draw once Russia's out?
09 Oct 18 UTC Spring, 1907: Are you instisting a 3-way draw? I want Italy to be included, either way.
09 Oct 18 UTC Spring, 1907: Thank you, England.
09 Oct 18 UTC Spring, 1907: For the sake of transparency: I don't intend to go solo. But at this point I suggest a 3-way draw after Germany is out.
10 Oct 18 UTC Autumn, 1908: Turkish Iceland is a reality at last...
10 Oct 18 UTC Autumn, 1908: Erdogan: *jizz in pants
10 Oct 18 UTC Autumn, 1908: If I can be perfectly frank, I thought Germany had just given up, so I thought I needed to seize the solo.

But, damn, foiled at every turn. Alright, three-way draw once Germany's gone.
10 Oct 18 UTC Autumn, 1908: Yep, I’ve seen it coming but we’d be able to push you back I think. Let’s have that draw when Germany is out.
10 Oct 18 UTC Spring, 1909: Disappointing too. Why the NMR, Germany? I think we had a real shot.
11 Oct 18 UTC Autumn, 1909: Wow, I'm so tired of this game.
11 Oct 18 UTC Spring, 1910: I see a solo possibility... But what a grind it would be to get there.
11 Oct 18 UTC Spring, 1910: please do it
13 Oct 18 UTC Autumn, 1911: Just one away...
13 Oct 18 UTC Autumn, 1911: Snitches get stitches
13 Oct 18 UTC Spring, 1912: GO SULTAN!
14 Oct 18 UTC Spring, 1913: Oh damn it I just needed Tunis.
14 Oct 18 UTC Spring, 1913: Also NO TURKISH ICELAND!!!
14 Oct 18 UTC Spring, 1913: I’m just happy to see England loosing, it all happened because he snitched so shame on him
14 Oct 18 UTC If this is what makes you happy, then I honestly feel sorry for you. It's a game buddy. ;)
14 Oct 18 UTC Congrats Turkey, nice game!
14 Oct 18 UTC Thank you England. Couldn't have made it without you giving me heat most of the way!

In conclusion, I'd have to say that you're a damn good player, and really scared me before Germany's collapse. It seemed you were playing everybody like fiddles. I think you could be a little too overt about your intentions though, as I remember feelingva little bitter myselfvabout how much you promised vs how much you delivered. Probably what drove me to the solo, in the end. But your strategy and tactics were sharp! GG.

Italy, I felt bad for how I treated you. I think I stabbed you three times? Lying to you were practically the stepping stones by which I grew. You played a damn good tactical game, and I think England and Germany feuding was what damned you, which is sad. GG!

Germany, I don't know vc what happened exactly between you and England still, but I get being frustrated. Still, you should never get mad enough to throw, though I think some of the error was England's stab. Though, IDK what was happening in the press, so I can't say. Still, you made some strange choices but they were ones that worked out usually. I would have given more to England as Russia was eliminated, as it might've meant he'd stab Italy instead. Either way, GG.

Russia, you got sucker-punched by an E-G that had an easy time with France, and the hopes of a Juggernaut with a Turkey too hungry for anybody's good! I think you should've readied yourself more, but like I said, unlucky circumstances. Still, you were a good ally, which I respect. GG.
14 Oct 18 UTC Sorry if that's longwinded but I think these AARs or what have you are fun. Discussing the game is always food for thought!
14 Oct 18 UTC Cheers, sharp-eyed observations! Sadly I had a lot going on these last few days and I even missed a couple turns. That was unfortunate as - by my calculations, I believe - we could have readied a stalemate between us.
Next time. Good game indeed, I enjoyed the cooperation, the necessary stab less so.
14 Oct 18 UTC Yeah, I was wondering about the full-holds. Shame RL got in the way, but hope it's been smoothed out.

As for the stalemate, yeah, I think between getting a fleet into the Mediterranean and if you had beaten me in the Prussia race, I think I could've been starved off. I will say Turkish Iceland's fleet did a good job of diverting you. What brave sailors.
14 Oct 18 UTC Gg after all I had fun
15 Oct 18 UTC congrats turkey
15 Oct 18 UTC Yes that fleet was a brilliant idea. ;)

I also wanted to mention the possibility for a solo from my perspective. The sad irony is that it would only have been a real possibility for me if I had gone against Italy. But even then, having had only fleets, it was a thin chance and I was never actually going for it. The unreasonability of Germany also pushed me towards cooperating with Italy.
