08 Aug 17 UTC Good game guys.

I completely overstretched to St. Petersburg in my fight with Russia and you made some smart decisions when you had to disband - great comeback Startplayer!

Also thanks to France of the support hold of Munich. Of course it was mostly to prevent Russia from the solo, rather than helping me - but for a moment I thought that you were going to try the solo yourself while using me to hold off Russia.
08 Aug 17 UTC Thanks for the game everyone. Its harder to write thoughts on gunboat compared to a normal game.

I started off thinking of going for Austria and taking the remote chance I could leave BLA empty. But after Turkey opened to Armenia I had to defend there. I was also encouraged that Italy was doing a Lepanto and Austria was appearing to leave me alone. by 1905 I was so spread out I thought I would last long but I think my recovery was managing to take Turkey whilst Austria focused of Italy. Its nice to start to recognise a few of the names on this site now.

Towards the end I thought it would probably be a draw, especially once Germany started to stay still and France supported them to hold. I was last to vote for a draw but after losing StP for second time I didn't think I'm be able to make the gains I needed in the Med so voted for the draw. Thanks all for the game
08 Aug 17 UTC I shouldn't have been nice and supported you back into Sev. Huge mistake threw the game.
09 Aug 17 UTC Yes, I was overly focused on Italy, so I left Russia alone.
And then I saw a gap on Turkey defense, so I got greedy and stabbed him.

But then I was baffled by Italian counter attack with one wrong mistake in Spring 1906 which gave time for Russia to took Turkey over completely while me and Italy fought to bitter end.
09 Aug 17 UTC Yeah somehow I got Gre and didn't die right away but it wasn't enough time for you to stop the bear. I suspect you weren't thrilled that I was in Gre to begin with.
