15 Jul 20 UTC Good game, guys. Well played, Austria!
15 Jul 20 UTC ggs, I'm sitting here wondering if I could have done anything better to prevent the solo...but being dog piled as France left me with few choices (not a complaint, anti-France meta is good imo)

I will complain that Germany, buddy, you didn't really help the defense :( bouncing me in MAR to prevent Italy from losing it, and thus weakening them too greatly to fight back against Austria, _doesn't matter_ if you take Venice anyway :)

not to mention completely abandoning the east and losing Berlin because of it :( and then taking Rome too instead of taking Trieste :(((((((

England, you're not innocent in my eyes either, taking SPA in 1908 meant that I couldn't go and fight Austria for another year :'(

From a more tactical side, taking DEN with an army in 1908 really screwed up your attempt to invade Germany and then prevented you from getting a fleet in BAL for defense. If you still wanted to build that army and use it, taking BEL from Italy would probably have been the better choice.
15 Jul 20 UTC GG all.

Yeah, sorry, I wasn't at all focused on Austria until F08, especially because Italy and England had taken Bel and Hol.
15 Jul 20 UTC It's okay <3 you were also under a lot of pressure yeah
15 Jul 20 UTC @France yeah, I can acknowledge that. I spent a couple of turns too long focused on retaking what I lost from Germany's attack (and retaliating against Germany), only to suddenly realize that Austria had grown huge and that I wasn't in position to do anything to contribute to holding the line.
15 Jul 20 UTC All about acknowledgement and growth here! The more I look at this, the more I should have realized in S09 that Munich would fall and that I needed to abandon SPA to defend ROM until MUN/BER could be retaken, and just hope nobody killed me off.
15 Jul 20 UTC Yeah, I usually rush to defend against the solo threat as soon as it's obvious (hopefully to everyone). I find that people are usually pretty good at not getting in the way of that, and if not then I figure there was nothing I could have done anyways.
