30 Dec 16 UTC Sorry MM, I just had to have Belgium.
30 Dec 16 UTC That where your boyfriend, Serg lives?
30 Dec 16 UTC Oh hey, it's The Czech! I come back after months of not playing, and I'm still always in a game with you.

I should have lost. I panicked and couldn't remember the minimal south-eastern stalemate line. I don't remember if there even is one without Piedmont.

Germany was gracious to not break me, in which case I would have been forced to abandon the Balkans in a desperate bid to convince France to stab.
30 Dec 16 UTC I was not going to stab Germany beyond the Belgium grab. We had a great working relationship taking down England.
30 Dec 16 UTC Not bad for a two turn NMR/CD France.
30 Dec 16 UTC I noticed, and I was afraid :)

I was really surprised in that Apulia didn't bounce over Venice in Autumn 1906. Not that it would've made a difference with the not-unexpected lack of Austrian support, but getting that convoy in actually took me aback.
30 Dec 16 UTC I am grateful that gen lee attacked Spain instead of Portugal in 1902.
30 Dec 16 UTC Oh MM, Serg says hello and he misses your cute ass and asks you to squeeze your buns for him.
30 Dec 16 UTC Lol
30 Dec 16 UTC Shocked Gen Lee was England ... just suicided himself against me while France swamped him. Odd
30 Dec 16 UTC I am grateful for his madness for German SC's.
30 Dec 16 UTC All of these big guns, I am fifth in rank, and I pulled out a big reversal of fortune and was only stopped in loyalty to Germany and our alliance.
30 Dec 16 UTC Screwed over by NMR and no cancel, just wanted to be done.
30 Dec 16 UTC It's taken me 15 minutes to conclude that, indeed, the only way to get a Turkish stalemate line without pie is if you have both boh and Rom. I need to re-learn to do that faster :/.
30 Dec 16 UTC Also a travesty that France didn't solo this game. Keep working on it Capt Brad
30 Dec 16 UTC again gen lee, it was loyalty to germany that had me stop; that and i had other things to do.
30 Dec 16 UTC 1905 was my mistake. Winter 1904 double army may have been better. But Spring 1905, I should have gone with my first instinct and played the Med game passively. That would have allowed me to follow through with my original plan to move sil -> pru, gal -> boh, ukr -> War. It was obvious that France would build either F Mar or A Par in Winter 1905, Russia's playstyle indicated I could've left Moscow open and he wouldn't try for it because he wouldn't have expected it, I was running on a short timer before England died and I lost the game, etcetera.

I played for 3rd place because I stopped thinking clearly, and that's exactly where the game was headed in the end.
