29 Nov 14 UTC Should have known France was the one crying in the forums.

GG everyone else.
Italy, why keep attacking France?
29 Nov 14 UTC I had a key Internet failure at one point but I don't think it really mattered.
29 Nov 14 UTC Sorry about that one NMR Austria but I didn't feel it called for a cancellation/draw at that point and you got back in the chair afterwords.
29 Nov 14 UTC I had a key Internet failure at one point but I don't think it really mattered.
29 Nov 14 UTC I even looked and I SAW Smyrna in my order box. WTF Happened.
29 Nov 14 UTC To bring fleets to MAO. The decision happens in east?
29 Nov 14 UTC Syria and Smyrna look really close, sorry about that Turkey, you put up a very valiant defense normally.
29 Nov 14 UTC Last time I try to be friends with Russia in gunboat. Fuck that noise.
29 Nov 14 UTC If that had not happened, at best, it would have delayed you from winning by 1 game year.
29 Nov 14 UTC I think what happened is I scrolled while still selecting the box (scroll wheel is the death of me).
29 Nov 14 UTC I mean fair enough. But could you put fleets in MAO without taking MAR/SPA?
29 Nov 14 UTC To bring fleets to MAO. The decision happens in east?
29 Nov 14 UTC Strauss you have played over 700 games now, why are you still so poor, did you not notice Russia ..... what a disappointing player.
I assume England & Germany are noobs but really Strauss grow up because you ruin these games by not even trying. What a waste of time
29 Nov 14 UTC Russia got lucky. EVERYONE moved away from him in 1901-1902, and then Austria CD, E/F/G got too tied up to stop him, and I was way out of position after not getting 5th SC from Austria.
29 Nov 14 UTC England is very new.
29 Nov 14 UTC Yes, this was my very first game
29 Nov 14 UTC Strauss very often tries very hard and does very well in my PODTAKU (non live WTA gunboat series) games.
29 Nov 14 UTC I'm not saying he played well this game...but it's unfair to characterize his playing overall as poor.
29 Nov 14 UTC This was an atypical game for Strauss. I think he got overwhelmed (as I did) by the sheer incompetence in the west.
29 Nov 14 UTC You didn't have to give up the north because of Mar and Spa, whether draw or survive, you in it. What was with Brest? Shit happens.
29 Nov 14 UTC Thought process:
Russia has 14 units
Everyone else has voted DRAW
What to do ..... attack France (OBVIOUSLY)
How many brain cells are in that head of yours?
29 Nov 14 UTC Yes Strauss shit does happen when you play but why not play better than run away and be a dick, if you vote draw support other countries that have voted to draw, try it once, you may like it
29 Nov 14 UTC I guess the decision was east.
29 Nov 14 UTC If you vote DRAW people think you want to DRAW the game and they make an assumption you will at least try even if you are a shit player, when you don't even try it just spoils the game ..... man up mate.
29 Nov 14 UTC NigeeBaby is a whiny baby
29 Nov 14 UTC I'm noob, but I don't bitch about it
29 Nov 14 UTC Maybe better I took the way to MAO without an attacked, but I guess we won only a few phases.
29 Nov 14 UTC Sorry.
29 Nov 14 UTC Yes but played shit England and gave the win to Russia, nobody expects any more from you than to play shit, I play to win the game
29 Nov 14 UTC But Strauss after 700 games you must at least look at the map and think, we need to attack Russia or he will solo, did that enter your head at any time?
29 Nov 14 UTC Sure, I'll teleporting over Austria or Russia. You kidding? Why you're raged about me - I could only go to west without to disturb A-T in there defense with an offensive move to east.
29 Nov 14 UTC To be fair I could have used a fleet in Aegean to hold Smyrna.
29 Nov 14 UTC ...and you SHOULD hold Belgium. Huh, England is the nice guy?
29 Nov 14 UTC Okay, further you all could fill out a form paper and reach it to my secretary. Oh God, I should in the staff...
29 Nov 14 UTC Strauss I'll need that in triplicate.
29 Nov 14 UTC After 700 games you still don't get the game, do you have an IQ of 80?
You didn't need to attack Russia directly, you could have supported Turkey, you could have stopped attacking me so I could fight against Russia in the North rather than have to defend against you in the South, the point of clicking the DRAW button is to signal to your fellow players that you want to DRAW the game, why the fuck would you do that if you had no intention to DRAW, do you know Valis in real life?
29 Nov 14 UTC Austrian late NMR was the beginning of the end. I hear nothing...
29 Nov 14 UTC <- IQ ~70

I still learn by your arguments...
29 Nov 14 UTC Strauss rather than all of your bullshit why not just play better because you ruin the games, forget England he was a noob just making random moves, he obviously had no clue how to play the game.
29 Nov 14 UTC FUBA
29 Nov 14 UTC NigeeBaby, you took over one of my supply centers after I clicked DRAW, which made it impossible for me to protect myself from Russia. Did you have no intention to DRAW?
29 Nov 14 UTC ... Touché!
29 Nov 14 UTC Nigee don't make meta accusations. It's against the rules and insulting to me, Strauss, and your character.
29 Nov 14 UTC England you were obviously incapable of defending your own centres and had no strategy, that was why Russia got so big because of your poor play, you did not deserve to be in the draw and I could have defended better with your supply centres, understand now?
29 Nov 14 UTC Shut up Valis, don't put words into my mouth. I have asked a straight forward question which you are avoiding ..... why?
29 Nov 14 UTC It's very true that minimizing the amount of players

1) Makes the major power slightly more convinced to draw if things don't look like they can solo

2) In gunboat, extremely useful to have less defenders than more defenders due to how hard coordination is.
Not that you have to let yourself be eliminated in order to hope to stop a solo because it's the same result to you. But it's important to consider.
29 Nov 14 UTC In a 5 point game I don't care how many people are in the draw but I just felt England was clueless from the beginning so would not help to create a stalemate line
29 Nov 14 UTC I can write a handful of facts, why this game was lost, the deciding ones aren't to be found by me. What have France lost in west? Belgium! I wouldn't like to start a discuss about the mistakes of other they allow to stand badly there - it was a sum of all mistakes. The NMR in Austria was the solo, every idiot would have solo finished it. I can't understand, why you have yourself such a focus to me? It's very ridiculous and not fair. Sometimes I'm angry too and loud, but calm down without arguments about this game.
29 Nov 14 UTC Chaqa,

I have thought a minute to go to AegS and to give support. However, I didn't want to provoke a reaction by an offensive order in the Turkish Empire in your back which weakens your defensive readiness. You were annoy, if I had known that you are the player, I would have moved absolutely there. But honestly that wasn't the reason why Russia has won as like as my attack on Mar and Spa, because T and A would collapsed next phases with or without my lonely fleet or more. Also the fleet Triest was a tactical disadvantage and can't involve to mainland to give support to Vie and Ser. Of course, after the heavy hit (NMR) Austria stood on lost posts and under big pressure to regroup his units, the back to the wall. Maybe he had got connecting problems, it has already happened to me and is especially annoying. But a short "Excuse me for NMR" with this consequences is common sense. Germany hadn't the right desire to fights serious and pushed Russia to a great power. We could intercept this I guess. Also the attack by Turkey to ION wasn't helpfully. A sum of mistakes, wasn't it? That's gunboat, many factors play a role. I've learned once again that Gunboat also can be a game of misunderstanding and didn't run perfectly all the time. The Russian solo wasn't the end of the world by my side and we should also not negate completely the achievement of Valis. He has just made everything right and the price is a solo. Luck must be earn!
29 Nov 14 UTC My point to you Strauss was a lot simpler than that, you indicated you wanted to DRAW so you must have pressed the DRAW button. To actually get a draw you have to work as a team with other people who have also pressed the DRAW button to fight the person trying to solo, surely you understand this very simple thing. There is every chance that Russia would have won because Germany & England are noobs but you did not even try to draw, I could see you were supporting Austria which was encouraging but if you don't want to work for a draw then why press the DRAW button, that is just stupidity and confusing in gunboat where we are all trying to use non-written communications.
You should know this by now, the fact that I am explaining this to someone who has played over 700 games is so disappointing......
