22 Oct 18 UTC I guess I'll take it. gg
22 Oct 18 UTC Italy, I would advise against half-hearted attacks on Austria. Turkey is typically the one to profit while you come up empty-handed. Especially from 1903 and onwards, I struggle to see what you were hoping to achieve other than a speedy demise of us both. I might be biased though.
22 Oct 18 UTC Good game all. We fought england.
Italy, I think if you followed your venice army w another army in 1901, instead of convoying it to Tunis, you could have held against Austria better.
22 Oct 18 UTC Well* fought england.
22 Oct 18 UTC Good game all. I enjoyed the battle with France, although as an interested spectator, my highlight was Russia's suicide attack on Germany.
22 Oct 18 UTC Thank you. Good gane all. Well done to England and France for reaching a timely alliance.

Well done to Austria. Thanks for all of your help.

As to me.... I made some very silly mistakes
22 Oct 18 UTC Haha, yeah, he annoyed me by offering support into Sweden and then immediately attacking me, so I decided what the hell, bring him down with me :p
22 Oct 18 UTC Haha yeah that wasn't fun! I probably shouldn't have let you into swe to begin with, but then after I did I rashly overreacted to your apparent alliance with Turkey and the apparent pile on of Austria and thought I needed to knock you down a peg, and thought you wouldn't really be in a position to immediately respond with England also attacking. I think I still would have been ok actually, was hanging tight for a bit, then I screwed up big time when I gambled by trying to blow up your fleet in ska and then inadvertently let you into Den. Then it was curtains for me.
22 Oct 18 UTC Really though as Germany in gunboat I'm often at a loss of what you do when your natural allies Austria and Italy fight.
22 Oct 18 UTC Team up with either France or England against the other.
Germany going after Russia is usually the last thing I want to do. At least early on in the game I avoid it
23 Oct 18 UTC Yeah, I agree, it's too messy early on. Fun though :p
