14 Dec 23 UTC Spring, 1885: Japan best country in this mode imo
14 Dec 23 UTC Spring, 1885: I had a great 2nd place finish with China a few runs ago but Japan's navy gets scary if they play it right

23 Dec 23 UTC Spring, 1887: GameMaster: Someone has taken over Italy replacing "AKEE". Reconsider your alliances.

24 Jan 24 UTC Good game
24 Jan 24 UTC Well played everyone! @England I was hoping we could eliminate a few more players first, but I get why you moved when you did.
24 Jan 24 UTC The main reason was boredom and impatience. Things were taking too long ????
24 Jan 24 UTC I thought the Japanese player played particularly well given the hand they were dealt. They outwitted me a few times
24 Jan 24 UTC Thx for the game.
You guys built up so quick it became a bit of a race to stalemate.
24 Jan 24 UTC Er ... if UK and France 'ally' at the start it's not a game, it's a procession
24 Jan 24 UTC France, if I may ask, did you see that a British solo was coming eventually? Or is it the scoring system that still allows you to win nonetheless?

My game plan in the end was for you two to eventually fight, so I'm just curious.
24 Jan 24 UTC I was hoping for the same
24 Jan 24 UTC Yeah, I was always pretty sure England was going to solo. But given that it's ppsc, I figured taking second place as part of a virtually unassailable alliance was a safer bet than trying to fight him and potentially getting eliminated. As China points out, an Anglo-French alliance has a certain inexorability. Perhaps if we'd eliminated Germany, Turkey, and Austria without the game ending I'd have turned on him.
24 Jan 24 UTC I survived! (Thanks Austria)
24 Jan 24 UTC Ah, that does make sense France. Chances are, I'd probably do the same as you honestly. Also, I've really wanted to applaud you for that move in Spring 1892 where you supported my move into your own sealane. Seriously didn't see that coming - very well played.

Russia, I find it poetic that though we were rivals from the get-go, we ended up as allies in the last moments. Truly one of the stories of all time.
