16 Oct 19 UTC I'm sure I could have solo'd this, but at this point, a 3 way draw is fine enough with all the CD and such that happened.
16 Oct 19 UTC Gg guys
16 Oct 19 UTC GG. Well played Germany.
16 Oct 19 UTC I almost would have let you Italy pissed me off so much. I'm not 100% sure, but I agree you had a decent shot. I am on my phone so was having a hard time getting orders in properly. Move to kile was a misorder.
16 Oct 19 UTC Some key thoughts:
1. Turkey building two armies in 1901 builds was really dumb.
2. England not taking Holland when it was open in 1906. You could have caused some serious chaos. Also - you basically committed suicide in 1907 when you had no reason to
3. Italy - oof, what a back and forth
16 Oct 19 UTC Gg. Nice defense England. Fleet London seemed agressive to me, sorry if you weren't planning on attacking me.

Italy, idk why you loved Austria so much. Also, you should check the big map/orders log if you don't. Same with original France, I kept trying to support hold that guy in mars and he would always move it.
16 Oct 19 UTC I'm confident. Having an army in Finland was huge, you were going to have a hard time rooting me out of there, and taking Berlin. My Turkish/southern armies were all free now, so t was just a matter of time and a little bit of luck.
16 Oct 19 UTC Yeah I was nervous about Holland but I figured you'd do edi so you could get your home center back. I agree with chaqa probably should have gone for the chaos. In 07 I think I just out guessed him but it was a risky moveset.
16 Oct 19 UTC Jeeze. No, I wasn't, G.
16 Oct 19 UTC Italy should never had gotten the jump on me in 1904. I had originally planned Aegean to Ionian, Trieste to Venice, but I decided to let him be the "aggresor" for hopes Germany would intervene and not attack me.
16 Oct 19 UTC I was convoying London to Denmark this turn, then stp supports North sea to Norway and I can walk you out I think. Was also supporting sil back to Berlin and then Kiel could go up to Baltic in autumn. Stp was going to Moscow this spring to bounce any shifts and Prussia to Liv so I think I could get you out no problem before it would be 18. And you didn't have the fleets to really push into Italy or take Tuscany.
16 Oct 19 UTC I thought about it but you'd been playing better than him and had too many armies for me to side with you over him. Especially when he took the port, would've been too slow for you to get a navy.
16 Oct 19 UTC From my perspective. Idk though, no challenge you're a better player than I am so if you disagree with me you're probably right.
16 Oct 19 UTC And yeah G outguessed me on my suicide turn. And 100% I should have gone for Holland. I thought Germany would back off and let me stay in Scandinavia.
16 Oct 19 UTC I'd play another.
16 Oct 19 UTC I almost did, but then France left and Italy was bumbling but Austria didn't crush him so I figured better to try and tidy up quickly before one of them sorted the other out.
16 Oct 19 UTC Nah, I need to go soon sorry
16 Oct 19 UTC https://webdiplomacy.net/board.php?gameID=252143
16 Oct 19 UTC I wish England would of held me in St. Peters :I
16 Oct 19 UTC Nope. My whole game plan was to get Austria to grow out of control, and take StP for myself.
16 Oct 19 UTC I appreciate it loo
16 Oct 19 UTC Yeah I got indecisive once I saw that both of you had a good shot at the solo I figured I would just play defensive and try to earn a draw and it worked
16 Oct 19 UTC England if you just supported me in St. Peters its unlikely Germany would of risked the Austrian solo stampeding through Scandanavia
16 Oct 19 UTC That doesn't make sense.
16 Oct 19 UTC why not lol
16 Oct 19 UTC I meant support held**
16 Oct 19 UTC How would disempowering Austria make Germany more afraid of Austria?
16 Oct 19 UTC Also, protecting you in StP would have meant I couldn't have supported myself to North Sea.

It would have been a huge mistake imo.
16 Oct 19 UTC Your mistake was not taking Holland.
16 Oct 19 UTC Yep.
16 Oct 19 UTC And letting Germany into North Sea in 1903.
16 Oct 19 UTC Preventing Austria AND Germany from getting St. Petes weakens them both, and Germany would also have to not get Norway on top of that something he probably wanted
16 Oct 19 UTC k
16 Oct 19 UTC Also you trying to get into St. Petes was just unrealistic, Germany was all over you and Austria already had defenses ready
16 Oct 19 UTC And Germany was still in open ended conflict with Italy by that point, so it would of been balancing act for him, and so he probably just would of ignored us alltogether
16 Oct 19 UTC Yes going for St Pete was definitely a mistake. There was no way I was giving that up unless necessary.
16 Oct 19 UTC I could have gotten it on my last turn. But yeah I shoulda gone for Holland, I realized it the turn after.
