03 Mar 19 UTC Good game.
03 Mar 19 UTC gg all,

such an unusual game.
03 Mar 19 UTC Austria still at only 4 SC in 1909 and then in the final draw.
03 Mar 19 UTC I was prepared to go for the draw early on and only tried for the win when Italy attacked me so I attacked back.
03 Mar 19 UTC Germany, if you are wondering why I hit Munich, it was to make England stronger in order to make Russia weaker. I knew that without MAO, I could never hold Paris and Munich long term.

England, I only attacked you later to slow you down a bit to buy time for us in the east to gets things set up.
03 Mar 19 UTC gg.

Tugster, you have done a brilliant job. Some lucky guesses in the beginning helped a lot. I feel myself rewarded for have stopped Russia and Turkey such a long time and for have not fought Italy after losing Greece.
03 Mar 19 UTC well, thank you, you stayed calm after I took Greece, to me, that was the biggest thing. I could see that in many of your moves you were nervous, but you stayed calm. I been developing my strategy as Italy to where it has now become: Contain Turkey, harass France, influence the board in subtle ways to get to the final draw. I've been dissatisfied with all of the following Italian strategies: Blitz Austria (makes Turkey too powerful), Lepanto, invites Austrian stab at the critical moment of weakness.. Full blast on France, gives away Ionian to Turkey, bad news.

So, now I am doing this => Help Austria, but just a little, to contain turkey, but not a full blown attack on Turkey, and then I harass France, not expecting to actually beat France, but with the right help, France can be beaten, but the objective is actually to set up either Germany or England to be dominant in the west. A little of all of this worked in this game.
03 Mar 19 UTC And everybody gangs up on Sweetwater
03 Mar 19 UTC I committed just one fleet to help Austria through about 1904, then a second fleet, and just that little bit of help was enough for Austria hold back both Turkey and Russia, and eventually to even beat them.
03 Mar 19 UTC of course, because we can see it's you by your style of play... You're a marked man.
03 Mar 19 UTC Lol
03 Mar 19 UTC Well played
03 Mar 19 UTC well, first off, when the name "sweetwater" is in the game title, we presume you are here, so then we look for you... lol

Although, i played once in a game, with sweetwater in the title, because I made it, and I invited you, but others must have joined faster than you did so I spent that entire game trying to figure out who you were only at the end to see that you were not in the game. Now THAT was advanced trickery!!
04 Mar 19 UTC Haha
