21 Aug 19 UTC GG all.
21 Aug 19 UTC This was my first real go at Italy in a high-level Lepanto setting. That was brilliant, moving into the Ionian Sea. It's shaped ever one of my Italy games now. Thanks, et!
21 Aug 19 UTC It really shows that I have so much to learn before becoming a true top 100 player, ha ha
21 Aug 19 UTC Germany, your defense in the middlegame was excellent. I'm glad that we could end our love/hate dynamic on a good note in Norway.
21 Aug 19 UTC Thanks, France! I enjoyed my convoy in Autumn 1906 the most. And agree that we ended on a high note, realizing that I started the whole thing with an unnecessary attack on London. Well played, Austria, and thanks for playing everyone.
22 Aug 19 UTC Thanks, Italy and Germany.
22 Aug 19 UTC There were very good conditions for Austria stabbing Italy.
1.Russia took Rum by fleet.

Russia was not able to attack Ser.
So I was able to ignore Russia.

2.Italy took Smy at Spring.

Turkey was weaken by Italy and Italy was not able to build unit right then.
I was able to stab Italy safely.

3.Italy opened Ven.

I thought I would take whole Italian home SC quickly.
22 Aug 19 UTC These conditions were not intentional.
I was very lucky.
22 Aug 19 UTC Well, Italy was able to get back at you by ruining my game in the end for no apparent benefit other than helping you kill him. So who got the last laugh?
22 Aug 19 UTC Balki, I wasn't *trying* to kill you after Autumn 07. In Autumn 07, I decided that in order to actually survive, I needed to try for Smy. It worked. I managed to extend my life for two years, in which I never moved aggressively against you. I am sorry for my role in your death, but by that point, it was about survival. Perhaps the more noble thing would have been just to die... but it was unlikely that you were going to survive more than a few years if I had not done that.

I should not have opened Ven. That is my mistake. I don't do that anymore.
