21 Nov 18 UTC Well done, Russia. We should've rallied to try to stop you sooner.
21 Nov 18 UTC Congrats to Russia
21 Nov 18 UTC gg
21 Nov 18 UTC I was genuinely surprised by france going after berlin instead of russia. Infighting between you two meant he had the game in hand.
21 Nov 18 UTC I realised way too late. Sorry.
21 Nov 18 UTC Yes, even at the end there wasn't much of a rally to stop me.
21 Nov 18 UTC And I probably shouldn't have taken Belgium from England early on, but I saw it as necessary for my survival. Sorry about that, England.
21 Nov 18 UTC I realised way too late. Sorry.
21 Nov 18 UTC It's 3AM here, so I'll talk to you all later :-)
21 Nov 18 UTC That's alright, France, happens to the best of us. 5 minutes isn't a whole lot of time to think.
21 Nov 18 UTC Goodnight!
21 Nov 18 UTC I did what I could, but good learning experience for all
21 Nov 18 UTC I realised way too late. Sorry.
21 Nov 18 UTC Goodnight. 2am here
21 Nov 18 UTC Well played Russia! Germany, respect also, but I did not understand the invasion of France in '04 with an obvious jugg on board and a CD Italy... and Russia had already landed an army in England. What was your plan there?
21 Nov 18 UTC gg, night all
21 Nov 18 UTC What was up with Germany supporting France to Berlin? That was weird.
21 Nov 18 UTC Good question, Austria. That was probably a mistake on my part. As I recall, I figured France's foray into Warsaw would keep Russia distracted for a while, and I wanted to give England a shot at surviving so that he could turn around and do something about Russia before Russia circled around me. Miscalculated.
21 Nov 18 UTC That's fair. I saw the support into Berlin and was "yesss maybe i make a draw" lol. Well played. :)
21 Nov 18 UTC Oh, I supported him to Berlin because I was gambling that he'd go for Warsaw or maybe Munich instead, but I knew there was a good chance he'd try for Berlin, and I wanted to take the gamble on taking Belgium and hoping he didn't move into Munich. And because I had nothing else to do with Munich that turn, I figured it would make for a good laugh to support him into my own home SC.
21 Nov 18 UTC hoping he didn't move into Berlin* I mean
21 Nov 18 UTC In retrospect the right move was probably to send Munich to Berlin to bounce, but there would still have been the possibility of Burgundy having a go at Munich that turn.
21 Nov 18 UTC What the heck did I accidentally sign up for a live game...? I’m so sorry!!
21 Nov 18 UTC I had no idea. Probably ruined my RR... :(
21 Nov 18 UTC Lol... i needed you italy!! They gave ol austria the ol deathcrush
21 Nov 18 UTC I got distracted by the easy Italian centres. That's my excuse anyway.
21 Nov 18 UTC Sorry Austria. Completely my bad. Was just looking for some gunboats to join didn’t realize the phase length
21 Nov 18 UTC No worries, Italy, I'm sure most of us have made a similar mistake, completely understandable.

On a separate note, Happy Thanksgiving to everyone celebrating it!
21 Nov 18 UTC Happy Thanksgiving from Canada! Cheers everyone
