14 Jun 19 UTC GG's all
14 Jun 19 UTC wanted to work with you Russia but you turned on me
14 Jun 19 UTC Why not help me knock Turkey out to thin the draw, Italy?
14 Jun 19 UTC @Italy - I wanted to work together as well, but you never committed units to fighting Turkey OR heading west. You just had your armies sit in the Venice/Trieste/Albania area threatening me...
14 Jun 19 UTC GG, folks. Tense pretty much all the way through down in my corner...
14 Jun 19 UTC I was fighting Turkey the whole time, I actually had supported you into Bulgaria and others a few times but it backfired on me. You couldn't decide between helping me or Turkey. I wasn't threatening, just wanted my fair share
14 Jun 19 UTC Good game, I didn't understand the German stab. It makes no sence for me. You just got one build while I still had a massive fleet advantage which makes it easy for me to defend. Otherwise we probably would have eliminated Russia
14 Jun 19 UTC I had a couple bad guesses right at the start, but well played russia and italy. I think the issue was if either of you got my centers it would've given you enough of a boost to push for a solo with england held up and holding up most of germany.
14 Jun 19 UTC @England - that stab was so obviously coming. You probably should have been the one to attack him, really - he had little defense against your fleets. You had limited growth potential from me (Germany could likely claim Warsaw and Moscow first) and then you've basically just paved the way for a German solo.

Germany definitely did the right thing.
14 Jun 19 UTC And Russia why do you started attacking Sweden before? Based on our both openings, especially yours I thought we had an alliance.
14 Jun 19 UTC England, Yeah, I thought you two were going to crush when france fell and everyone was still focusing on lil' ol' me.
14 Jun 19 UTC I would have done that if you not had attack Sweden since a few turns. Furthermore I saw that two German army builds and was pretty sure he wouldn't be so stupid to attack both of us simultaneously.
14 Jun 19 UTC @England - having an army sitting in Sweden all game was super threatening to me. You shouldn't sit an army there all game and not use it.
14 Jun 19 UTC I just was waiting for the right time to take Denmark but your attacks made it impossible for me and that army wasn't really threatening you...
14 Jun 19 UTC I mean, my fleet wasn't threatening either, really.
14 Jun 19 UTC Yes but I don't understand the attacks. How I said it made my stab on Germany impossible
First it would have cut support for my opening move
Second I did not know what you would have done then
So I decided to go on with Germany.
14 Jun 19 UTC I guess that's fair. I haven't played Russia lately so I really wasn't sure what to do.
14 Jun 19 UTC Any tips for my end of the game?
14 Jun 19 UTC Eh, my decisions largely had to do with no Austria being present. I'd normally not attack you so early. You played well.
14 Jun 19 UTC @Theo - I didn't want to stab you when I did, but with one army in the north and that huge mass of fleets, I felt that you would have taken StP and then immediately attacked me. Most players would probably have done so in that situation.
