30 Sep 19 UTC All nations except for Britain, Poland, and Turkey have voted draw. I will assume that Turkey would be happy with a draw, but just has not clicked the button. This leaves Britain and Poland.

I believe that Italy and I have effectively created a stalemate line along our shared border with Poland/Britain. The only remaining active combat zone is that involving Turkey/Ukraine/Italy in the south. So, neither Poland or Britain can grow unless they begin cannibalizing each other or Ukraine. That seems unlikely.

So I'm left with the question: what do Britain and Poland want? Where do you see the game going? Are you just waiting to see if Turkey can be eliminated before voting draw? Are you hoping that Ukraine will break through Italy's lines and compromise the stalemate line? Something else?

I am interested in your thoughts.
30 Sep 19 UTC My guess is the elimination of Turkey

01 Oct 19 UTC Because a replacement leader has been found, the Polish people are happy to draw. Britain, it is up to you.
01 Oct 19 UTC Good game all.

Shout out to Britain for great tactical play that really kept me on my toes despite my early advantage in the SC count.

Thanks to Italy for being a good partner throughout the game. I couldn’t have set up the stalemate line with Britain and Poland without your good play.
01 Oct 19 UTC gg all
01 Oct 19 UTC gg and Thanks to france :)
01 Oct 19 UTC I unfortunately didn't see a way to break France (well done France), hence the draw immediately after I joined
