02 Jan 19 UTC Well done, rdrivera !
02 Jan 19 UTC Sorry for Warsaw, Valis. I expected Russia would take what he was given each time. Finally he became angry...
02 Jan 19 UTC Sorry to have nibbled you step by step, Peter... But that's the game.
02 Jan 19 UTC I will never understand what happened between France and Germany...
02 Jan 19 UTC Gg all. I think I had a small shot at a solo but I misorded a convoy and then it was over.

I swear I have entered my draw vote when everybody was still alive. I thought someone want me to eliminate Germany but it still didn't draw, so I guessed people want some more blood....
02 Jan 19 UTC I believe that’s the first time I’ve ever played a game that’s lasted to 1920 (as Austria)! Good game all.
02 Jan 19 UTC It is at least me. I have drawn only starting 1916. I wanted to get more from Russia. You missed a convoy from Den to Pru but it would not have given you a shot for a solo. We were holding a stalemate on the whole front.
02 Jan 19 UTC If it is after 1916, then it is not me.
02 Jan 19 UTC I mistakenly moved out of Bal in Spring 11. I should have armies on Sil and Pru in Fall 11, but instead I had on Den and Kie. At this point you didn't have a line. But I am happy with the outcome, considering that I was at three centers with a German army on Lyp on 1904.
02 Jan 19 UTC Well as to what happened with France and Germany, it seems Germany had plans to take Paris from the start, which is fine. So I fought back at Germany with English help... and I think if Peter/Russia hadn't tapped Ber when he did and/or I defended Munich the following turn instead of venting with an attack on Silesia... very likely that would have been end of Germany shortly after and I would have been able to put up a sizeable force against England. As it was those two sets of moves set up a series of losses that I dont think I could have stopped. Also after a failed war against France Germany decided to throw in favor of England for unknown reasons despite what I think was an obvious attempt to reconcile. I dont think I ever did anything to Germany other than defend myself and get lucky that England worked with me. Maybe it would have been better to not wrap my armies on his backside, which probably made peace difficult...
03 Jan 19 UTC But still once the transition was made where I focused on England, I was disappointed Germany still chose to attack France. Either way, superb sets of moves by Germany. I chose between a number of roughly 50/50 move options and Germany picked the perfect counter every single time.
03 Jan 19 UTC Also Valis I think there were a few chances where you could have eliminsted France and forced Spain/Marseilles for yourself. Glad you didn't :)
03 Jan 19 UTC Also brutal, but well done Turkey forcing Russia out of the game- I was worried you/Russia/Austria would make a mistake and lose the game, but you got it done (sorry Peter!).
03 Jan 19 UTC More of the same?

03 Jan 19 UTC Finally... congrats rdrivera!
03 Jan 19 UTC I should have tapped Ukraine when England pulled back :-(
