      remember my goal is not letting you win so france gaining vps is a plus for me

      • Actually the only reason you would feed France is to force a allaince against them.

        I'll comment on the current turn once I'm done directing the Navies, but it ain't over yet.

          Nope an alliance of whom

          I wont work with Austria

          Already allied with Russia

          You will never attack France

          Prussia about to get wiped out in three months when it enforced peace expires.

          As I keep saying France won the game when Austria attacked me and Russia.

            It would be asinine for me to do so, but who can say that France would never attack Spain?
            Historically speaking... well, we all know what happened there, so don't assume I'm nothing but a willing patsy, okay?

            If Prussia and Austria don't pick up half a dozen new provinces this Summer, each, then they just aren't trying.

            For 1807 perhaps, and it was a lot of work to do so, but 1815 is a long way off.
            And 1807 is far from over, how do you know Spain won't be the big winner?

                You really think that they can take 12 provinces from me this summer?

                  So loaned troops could act in the same way as reinforcements - they could show up but that`s not obligatory. In that case I think it`s fine for everybody.

                    Seems to me your goal is to simply win this game via the no-one-gets-100%-so-Britain-wins-rule.

                    We'll see how much you still like France once they reach 95% or so

                    I'll think you'll find the record shows I never attacked you, I didn't even declare war on you.

                    Even now the Emperor doesn't consider Britain an enemy, he's convinced she's just temporary bedazzled by an insane PM, and will soon come to her senses.

                    Of course poor Joseph doesn't know what I know

                      when your actions cause the loss of troops for a country that is an act of war.

                      nope keeping you down is more important that winning

                      remember I am not about winning anymore it all about being a spoiler for you.

                      Should of thought of that before getting English troops killed.

                        I meant 12 hexes, that should add up to about 3 or 4 of what we are calling Provinces, or whatever.

                        So.... the RN won without the help of the Russians.
                        So much for the myth that the RN isn't able to win battles.

                        The ones I just won (yes, I have taken the lead roll at sea for a while) were the result of carefully planned moves that brough superior numbers to bear in sequence. It wasn't a fluke.

                          Sort of,... my worry is that the glitch can actual teleport things around or of the map (where they would need to be re-deployed).

                              That's what you keep saying, and for a while I actually believed it - now I know better.

                              Not France, Russia or Austria, but Britain will win this game unless a coalition is formed to prevent it.

                              Luckily most of that coalition is already in place - we just need to readjust the focus a bit and convince the Russians to join us
