10 Nov 18 UTC why Russia or France would vote draw in this situation is beyond me, but whatever.
10 Nov 18 UTC yep should've waited a bit, but oh well
10 Nov 18 UTC gg, thanks for playing!
10 Nov 18 UTC Perhaps I should've removed my vote now that Turkey was attacking Russia, but I'm losing in the north as it is. If you look closely, there's no solid enough defence I can put up. Every single centre of mine will fall and Russia scores a solo.
I know, because I've agonised over it for an hour or so..
10 Nov 18 UTC Once your fleet in MAO reached the north, you could have pretty much held me off up there. Turkey was going to start making gains against me, and I didn't have enough units south to hold him off. I also wouldn't have been able to take any centers from France to compensate for those lost. So a draw was pretty inevitable.
10 Nov 18 UTC According to my calculations even that fleet in MAO couldn't save me. Next turn I'd lose North Sea guaranteed, after which Holland is lost. Then I'd be aunit short to hold Belgium etc.
It would've been a slog, but inevitable. Unless Turkey would force you to disband on the northern front, so I should indeed probably have waited a bit more.
10 Nov 18 UTC if you say so Russia.
