12 Aug 20 UTC Great game all. That was a lot of fun :)
12 Aug 20 UTC GG everyone! Well played to you England; you nearly got the solo. Good thing Italy didn't hold a grudge :D
12 Aug 20 UTC And Italy, man, I really thought I had you, but you read me like a book with that hostile support in Autumn 1908. Very well done.
12 Aug 20 UTC Haha, I have no choice France! It is all my lucky!
12 Aug 20 UTC Anyway, We was too lucky when we was protecting from MAO, It is closed. That is our last chance!
12 Aug 20 UTC @Turkey play too well ahhh
12 Aug 20 UTC For sure! Great game everyone! I was hoping I would be able to break through england somewhere or do like a decisive strike on Italy or France to make it a 3-way draw. But I just knew that any attack on France or Italy would induce a suicide move to give the win to England (that's what I would do in that position anyway).

Good job England on making such a well defended line!
12 Aug 20 UTC @Italy you played really well to man! I was really nervous around Autumn 07/spring 08. I'm really happy my move to Vienna in 07 worked out so well and honestly that France came to my rescue massivly
13 Aug 20 UTC Oh, talk about Au07, I think that it is my end. No more home SCs will make sure that i will lost the game!
13 Aug 20 UTC But really lucky 2 thing came in same time, 1st is my really lucky in keeping home SCs, and the second is England is coming to France!
13 Aug 20 UTC But really lucky 2 thing came in same time, 1st is my really lucky in keeping home SCs, and the second is England is coming to France!
13 Aug 20 UTC Thanks France for a game, it is too close for me!
13 Aug 20 UTC Thanks England for saving me :)).
13 Aug 20 UTC I was going to pull back and see if turkey pushed for a two way draw but I could not see that happen in gunboat. Good job uniting. I really thought I would have 1 more year before you all worked together.
14 Aug 20 UTC If we hadn't teamed up when we had, you probably would have won! Italy was very generous in letting me hold on to Rome so I could set up the stalemate line.

Great game to you as well, Italy. You deserved to survive, given how well you played :D
15 Aug 20 UTC thanks, It is a big lucky for me
15 Aug 20 UTC Honestly with the support holds England was giving me I was like ... are these hints I should attack Italy to go for a 2-way or a 3-way draw? I was very tempted to do just that for the last year or so. But I just couldn't risk England taking 2 or 3 more centres while I was fighting Italy and England ending up with the solo ;p
15 Aug 20 UTC But yes, Italy, your instant demilitarization around our border and your moves toward england helped us immensly to stop England. You played very well man. Also before that you made it really difficult for me. Was a good game!
15 Aug 20 UTC I expect France fleet will move back to his home land and protect it!
15 Aug 20 UTC If France is not there, I think i can finish the game more than this.
15 Aug 20 UTC But, nothing start with "if". In the game, i tried my luck. So lucky that Turkey and France is united in same time.
15 Aug 20 UTC Anyway, If Britain attack more from Munich, Warsaw, He may get a solo!
15 Aug 20 UTC Yes if I had an army in Berlin not a fleet I agree. I was trying to set it up that I could not advance anywhere but against France. So turkey could feel more secure to attack Italy.

Well played, you three Really allied at the exact right time. I really thought I had another year, or at least season. I should not have went for the joyride through Russia :) but that was fun.
