13 Dec 20 UTC Autumn, 1904: GameMaster: Game was extended due to at least 1 member failing to enter orders and having an excused missed turn available. This has un-readied all orders.

06 Jan 21 UTC Good game everyone! This game was by far the most waited of my current games.

Austria, you should've predicted the danger coming from your former ally. Consequences of your carelessness were obvious. But you've shown you are not a fool, so I let you share a draw with us.

France, you have many draws on your count, let me guess? You should be a bit less friendly. You're lucky you managed to survive.

Italy, just well done. But provably you had to attack Austria in spring, not autumn. Maybe you could reach the stalemate line faster.

I like how Russia was a terrorist Austrian fleet on his own, before Austria decided to disband it, in order to make peace, hehe
06 Jan 21 UTC Thanks for the game all. Started so well but huge error by me spring 1903 to let england into mid Atlantic. Opened the door for Germany as I was in retreat not moving forward. Fortunately saw the opportunity for the stalemate line in plenty of time - mildly worried it got manoeuvred to a 2-way but very hard to do that.

Don’t like sum of squares scoring tho! It’s a draw but actually a loss of points. I suppose it allows things like Germany giving Austria a share of the draw without much cost.
06 Jan 21 UTC Thanks for allowing my government-in-exile to survive in Warsaw, haha. Good game, all, and yes, I'll carry my lessons about my own carelessness into future games.
06 Jan 21 UTC Well played all!

I couldn’t really attack in spring as I needed to reposition to ensure I could force it in autumn.

@France, why were you so timid of me when I moved my units east at the end to hold yours. Admittedly it stopped me soloing but was a little surprising.

Austria, well fought, the few moves post Lepanto are always precarious but it’s just unlucky that I was able to get two SCs in the first stab.

In essence I was really lucky that France had just started to push Germany back when the stab came as I don’t think I could have done if they didn’t.
06 Jan 21 UTC I was as worried about an italy solo as German. I knew I couldn’t hold Germany without totally exposing the south so I was already plotting for a slow fall back to a familiar stalemate line
06 Jan 21 UTC You would have taken the solo for sure if you could ;-)
06 Jan 21 UTC I still have no idea why you went for me after my totally anti-Germany opening France. That error should've killed you.
06 Jan 21 UTC 100% I just didn’t expect it especially when both Germany and I were effectively keeping you and Austria in the game.

Also Germany, if you took the free Austrian centres when you could you would have soloed, you would have expanded too fast for the rest of us to deal with.
07 Jan 21 UTC What time are you talking about, Italy? I was pressed by Austria right till you stabbed him. After that, I had no chance even to take Sevastopol. So I don't get it
