26 Oct 18 UTC Well played Turk!
26 Oct 18 UTC That was fun. But I got to say, Britain, you're a dingus. When you can't win and the other guy who can't win gives you back your stuff at the end of the game, you don't attack them. You attack the one who is winning.

Anyway. Still fun, still exciting. Congrats to Tug.
26 Oct 18 UTC well, that's why Austria was such a pain to beat... No wonder

France, You could have so very easily stopped that solo. England was setting up in Russia nicely to stop me, all you had to do was set up in Iberia and Germany, piece of cake.

Italian opening, seriously? Suicide on Austria at all costs when there isn't even a Russian player...?
26 Oct 18 UTC are you kidding me France that was all totally on you, all. You single handedly gave me the solo at the end. It's your job to setup your lines, England set up his, you didn't.

England set up his lines in Russia with professionalism, and disbanded with authority and repeatedly near you. And you just kept stealing his SC and you abandoned the stalemate lien to do it, dumb.

All you had to do was to stop against Britain and set up your lines. Did Britain write your orders? no, you did.
26 Oct 18 UTC GG guys was fun to play even if I got destroyed early on.
26 Oct 18 UTC well, Germany, there was no Russia, that gave England a massive advantage on you.
26 Oct 18 UTC he had Norway, Sweden and stp all in 1902, what could you do at that point?
26 Oct 18 UTC France. I'm the dingus? Once you stabbed me in '05 you wnted to continue that tic for tac game and let Turkey run free. You never turned to stop them. You RAN FROM TURKEY!
26 Oct 18 UTC Germany, you were in a tough spot
26 Oct 18 UTC agree 100% with England. Marseilles and MAO left totally unprotected in the face of obvious Turkish solo. I didn't cross the stalemate line in British held lands, I crossed it in French territory.
26 Oct 18 UTC Yeah I felt like I had very little option very quickly and it was largely out of my control since it is a gunboat game. Once my initial attack on France fell through and it was obvious that England wasn't going to support me but rather attack me as well I knew my game was going to be over quickly.
26 Oct 18 UTC Oh, I never said I wasn't a dingus too.
