26 Jun 20 UTC Wow, gg everyone but particularly to you two, France and Austria! You were really amazing and it was really really difficult trying to stop you. Austria I really thought you would have supported me into Con this turn, Italy would have destroyed and I would have helped you in the Med, but that's OK.

@Turkey, in spring 1902 I was supporting you to Serbia, really don't understand why you helped Austria the following turn. Even because you didn't open going into Armenia, so I really thought we were allied.

@Germany why didn't you retreat to Edinburgh in autumn 1908? It was our chance to make France destroy a unit! I didn't defend you in purpose! Honestly, for a moment I really thought of build in Munich and attack you, luckily I finally followed the original plan.
26 Jun 20 UTC @Russia Good points, thanks and good cooperation. although we talked...well, moved past each other many times. Yes, a retreat to Den may have been a mistake. Lon also was an option. But my primary concern was that in a longer perspective of -I.e of 1909, I/we could not have hold it. In press/correspondence game we surely could have.
Gg everyone.
26 Jun 20 UTC @Germany I thought of Edinburgh rather than London, you could have build another fleet, moved to Den while supporting me to NorthSea from Norway in spring. It seemed quite linear to me, I was really disappointed when I saw that retreat :D but hey, well done anyway, we did a great job
26 Jun 20 UTC All went very well for me until Italy decided to attack Con what I didn´t understand at all. There have been two possible explanations for me. Either he wanted to destroy my fleet or he wanted to get controll of Turkey which is never good for the Austrian player, because from that moment Italy controlls the whole south and can wait for the right moment to stab Austria. As a result of that I felt forced to rebuild my fleet.
That wasn´t meant as a declaration of war but it seems Italy interpreted it in such a way. From that moment I had to play really defensive and tried to make peace with Russia which luckily has been possible. I could even interprete that attack on Rumania right. But I didn´t felt comfortable with supporting you to Con, altough I had that in mind. But as well as I didn´t want Italy to controll Turkey, I didn´t want Russia to controll Turkey. Whoever has controll over the seas is the one with the better position. I would have been surrounded my Russian forces just waiting for the moment to make their moves on me. So my only chance has been waiting for the moment that I could gain centers from Italy.
26 Jun 20 UTC I totally agree with you Austria. I hoped seeing me moving away from Galicia would have pushed you to support me into Con, since I needed one more fleet north and couldn't break through Turkish Italy alone.
26 Jun 20 UTC I appreciated that move out of Galicia, but long term it is a high risk to have a Turkey controlling Russia all around me. So better play safe and sorry in such a high level game...
