22 Sep 20 UTC Man what is with people fighting when there should be a stalemate line formed lol
22 Sep 20 UTC Why in the hell did you keep attacking me Italy when France was obviously moving onto you and I posed no immediate threat?
22 Sep 20 UTC Also why did like 3 powers continue to attack me to their own detriment
22 Sep 20 UTC That and Germany throwing to me made it impossible to stop. GG bros
22 Sep 20 UTC This game was full of monomaniacs
22 Sep 20 UTC Honestly the opening Austria's moves were really dumb and contributed to just a complete resource sink by all three in the Balkans
22 Sep 20 UTC That was your choice to hold Bud
22 Sep 20 UTC I don't understand why Germany continued to concede to France when they were clearly going for a solo
22 Sep 20 UTC I mean you take Bud, I take Trieste and we form the line
22 Sep 20 UTC I only tried to get one German Supply center and that was simply to keep a unit, i very clearly relented to both Russia and Germany
22 Sep 20 UTC Then why didn't you destroy Liv instead of NTH lol
22 Sep 20 UTC The game was lost several years before the turn that Russia and England are commenting about.
22 Sep 20 UTC I don't understand why Italy kept going at me at all when he could have used one of those fleets to take Trieste.
22 Sep 20 UTC Turkey, I was holding Med, that was you who kept attacking. Scroll back
22 Sep 20 UTC Just looks like game throwing to me.
22 Sep 20 UTC Neither England nor Italy were making an effort to stop France, and I was no longer in any position to hold them off by myself, making NEFS' solo inevitable.
22 Sep 20 UTC I think Italy deserves the game getting thrown to France as much as Germany does TBH
22 Sep 20 UTC Why did you support Austria to hold
22 Sep 20 UTC Well, I prefer survival to defeat, if that’s what you mean Turkey
22 Sep 20 UTC At that point Germany and I had been pretty peaceful, and at that point I still wanted to keep my slavic SC (and then once I realized Germany wasn't going to do anything to stop France I couldn't get rid of darn Liv). Not the best moves on my part but I thought there would be more cooperation once France came bulldozing through
22 Sep 20 UTC France was going to kill you before he killed me
22 Sep 20 UTC If England had made an effort to hold his own homeland island (instead of prioritizing Scandanavia and Russia possession), then I would have kept fighting longer
22 Sep 20 UTC Yeah that's kind of a bad rationale England, definitely should have just blown up Liv so you could try and keep your home centers
22 Sep 20 UTC I thought the whole point of GunBoat was to read the board and to adapt to the situation
22 Sep 20 UTC Definitely some bad moves on my end, obviously. But I had thought Germany would be giving France a fairly hard time, especially since I wasn't bothering Germany.
22 Sep 20 UTC Definitely not the biggest fan of playing England
