10 Jun 20 UTC @Russia, sorry for fucking this up. I just didn't understand why you kept tapping Trieste through spring 1911, and assumed that you were going to attack me in fall 1911 with support from Vienna. I knew I didn't have the fleets to hold off Germany without Turkey lending a hand, so I perceived the repeated tapping off Trieste as a signal to Turkey to eliminate me for a 3 way G/T/R draw.

So then I figured me best action was to either cut Vienna in fall 1991, or take Vienna while you took Trieste, disband the army in TRI, rebuild it as a fleet, and then maybe we could have worked together for a stalement with only one turkish fleet helping out, which would have been much easier.
10 Jun 20 UTC I think I played quite well, but I was really lucky in these last turns.
And it was great playing with you, gg to everyone!

Great collaboration @Russia, until it lasted: I don't like betraying, but it was the right moment, with France stuck and Austria resisting, so I gave it a shot
11 Jun 20 UTC @Italy: This game was salvagable till the very end. (just go to Pie in Spring or take Munich in Fall) I tried to leave Bud empty at first. That was very much on purpose. But you not only decided to use your armys to surround me but you also did not move your fleets towards west. That too me said you wanted to attack so i prevented that via tapping Triest.
At no point i had any intention to attack you. I might have attacked Turkey to reduce the draw but your overall play did not encourage too much trust.
@Germany: no hard feelings. I expected it sooner tbh but i was a bit unlucky with guesses vs Austria so i was too slow up north.
