25 Nov 13 UTC GG I suppose. Sort of lucky, IMO.
25 Nov 13 UTC Well played everyone, really good game that I'm suprised to win to be honest, really thought you had me there Russia (things looked especially dour when France seemingly tried to throw you the game as well).

But yes, well played all - except maybe you France ;-) No-one's a fan of that.
25 Nov 13 UTC Could you elaborate on why I was lucky?

25 Nov 13 UTC (sorry for the double post - my computer is a bit crazy sometimes)
25 Nov 13 UTC You got lucky because you won a bunch of 50/50 calls down the stretch. You got easy SC's that afforded you the SC's to get back into position to stab. Just lucky, you damn near shot yourself in the foot. Good win anyway.
25 Nov 13 UTC I don't quite understand what you are saying, especially the 50/50 thing, there's no RNG involved in the game!

I know I probably made a couple of errors here and there but I wouldn't say any of them were quite so near fatal as you put (though the indecision of my fleet at the end was a bit silly on my part - first game with this level of time pressure, got me quite in a sweat!)

And it's quite funny talking about easy SC's when France tried to give you all of his!

I'm very interested in your opinion as I am always looking to improve and understand the game better and I see that you are quite the veteran on this website. Would it be okay to private message to discuss further? Or discussion on here? Up to you.

Many thanks,

25 Nov 13 UTC Sure
25 Nov 13 UTC GG Turkey and Russia.. that was a hell of a Juggernaut to stop!
25 Nov 13 UTC Especially since france decided to kill me so that I couldn't hold the line.
