16 Apr 19 UTC you are the DUMBEST
16 Apr 19 UTC player on this site
16 Apr 19 UTC gg Italy, you tried but you got no help whatsoever
16 Apr 19 UTC literally just threw the solo to england
16 Apr 19 UTC Turkey you suck. You should have realized the solo threat years ago and quit attacking Italy. You blew this game.
16 Apr 19 UTC Normally I wouldn't be mean but when you singlehandedly shit the bed for your whole team and your first instinct is to blame others I'm gonna humble you.
16 Apr 19 UTC Damn I was so close to surviving
16 Apr 19 UTC I tried to support hold Italy's units but they wouldn't stop attacking me so u couldn't even see them unless u looked at the actual oprders
16 Apr 19 UTC GG England, hell of a battle... I probably stretched myself out too thin going after Italy before I had defense shred up against you
16 Apr 19 UTC Yeah we know. In 1914. About five years too late. You missed all the warning signs until it was way too late.
16 Apr 19 UTC its Italy whos been attacking me, not the other way around
16 Apr 19 UTC gg France thought you left lol. You played fine but you just got tangled up on your builds and couldn't get fleets out when you needed them.
16 Apr 19 UTC Turkey--Thanks for the compliment, but England is right. when I made peace and went west, you kept attacking. It would have been easy for you to move through Warsaw and have gotten to Germany so we could have set up a stalemate line. England hadn't crossed the Med yet, but ...

In the end it is what it is.
16 Apr 19 UTC u never let up...
16 Apr 19 UTC Turkey quit making excuses. Italy had a Draw vote up for years. If you had any situational awareness whatsoever you would have also hit Draw and been the first person to stop fighting. Italy would have turned around to stop me.
16 Apr 19 UTC I got defensive and thought you would attack Brest, so I would move their hoping for a bounce but you didn’t bounce me out, so no fleets
16 Apr 19 UTC I didn't wanna draw until it was a 3 way...
16 Apr 19 UTC I’ve there*
16 Apr 19 UTC What England said. You and he were the only two who didn't have draws up.
16 Apr 19 UTC Right that was my read after how you covered yourself in 1902. You make very safe plays to ensure your centers don't get grabbed, which is probably reasonable but was pretty exploitable this game. Not a big deal, it's usually going to be right to cover. Maybe look to waive builds sometimes and set up?
16 Apr 19 UTC Yah, because a 3 way is so much easier than a 4 way.
16 Apr 19 UTC Interesting thought, thanks for the input
16 Apr 19 UTC My constructive advice on that, because it's fair not to want to draw before a 3-way: put a Cancel vote up late as a fake draw. No one is actually going to cancel but it shows you want the game to end. That's what I usually do.
Or just fall back and don't vote draw and trust your teammate. Either one.
16 Apr 19 UTC I just don't like gunboat
16 Apr 19 UTC But the important thing is that you have to recognize when you're not going to solo and take the appropriate steps to let people stop the solo. Sometimes that involves self-sacrifice and even disbands caused by your long-term enemies. Sometimes they'll just fuck you over and blow it (I had a really frustrating game yesterday that went like that). But most of the time they'll get the message.
