21 Mar 17 UTC Congrats on the win RUFF!
21 Mar 17 UTC Good game all, and nice solo Ruff.
21 Mar 17 UTC VERY nice win, Ruff... I didn't see that rogue fleet coming around... not sure what I could have done about it if i HAD seen it... but that is my excuse! Well executed.
21 Mar 17 UTC Great job, Ruff. I knew you had made it to far this way and would get it and there wasn't any stopping you.
21 Mar 17 UTC Very nice job, Ruffhaus. Once you sent that rogue fleet through SPO and over toward Shimazo in 1574, that made things inevitable for you.
21 Mar 17 UTC 28. Show off :P
21 Mar 17 UTC I'll update the scoring when you stab Germany ;)
21 Mar 17 UTC Thanks, everyone. I enjoyed the duels with Shimazu down the stretch. I felt that sending the rogue fleet was a huge risk to my right flank, but I also saw the upside as sealing to win, so i went for it.

I do feel bad for stabbing some of you, Mapu and Doc particularly. Both of you made reasonable gestures of cooperation, which might have appealed to me in other games. I chose to play ruthlessly in this one, and I guess that shows. I confess that my decisions were influenced based upon a lot of perceived indecision and concern about facing dot-grab stabs that I've been seeing a lot of lately. When you don't know how a player is it's tougher to trust. I went for 28 at the end in case there's a tiebreaker, but I'm pretty sure Bozo will smoke us all.
21 Mar 17 UTC I knew I was taking a risk by leaving the centers open near you, and given the way this map is, you need to play very aggressively to have a shot. So don't feel bad!
