21 Jun 20 UTC Gg everyone!
21 Jun 20 UTC Good game and good win Jeb.
21 Jun 20 UTC GGs, although Egypt, I was waiting for you to stop attacking me so that we could work together to stop Germany...
21 Jun 20 UTC Eh - I thought I had a solo there but, lost momentum
22 Jun 20 UTC Sorry, I should have clarified when I expected you to stop attacking me. You're correct that you and Germany were the solo threats in 2002, and I was sandwiched in between you two :'(

After the winter of 2004, when we all saw Germany build 5 and own 25(?) centers, it should have been clear that you were no longer a solo threat and that it was time to start preparing a stalemate line. If you look at the west, France doesn't have the fleets to hold a line, so we have to assume that Germany eventually gains Paris, Lyons, Switzerland, also probably Bordeaux, Marseilles, and Monaco or Milan. That's ~6 centers + 25 already captured and 35 wins it all, so Germany would only need 4 other centers, probably from what I held. Say Odessa, Hungary, Croatia, Venice.

I tried to signal to you by support holding SEV with Odessa in spring and fall 2005, and by not attacking your other centers in both spring and fall 2005. No dice.

So I disbanded Croatia to show that continuing to attack me would lead to Germany soloing. But you kept attacking me :/ so like, yeah you 100% had a shot at a solo at one point, then the board changed, but your mindset didn't appear to change to match the board :) just something to think about for next time.
