It is very likely that it does not need any further discussion and thus bumping it serves no purpose. If you feel it is necessary to make a new reply, you can still do so though.
I entered the session with the thought that I would be making continual gains on the Ottomans, however, after the original perm player left, and his co-op did not man up to face the situation he was in for two weeks in a row, Elcyion decided to take control of the nation for the session. In his mind, this was probably a good meta-game move for Elcyion (meta-gaming has never been a stranger to Elcyion). This allowed him to beat the Netherlands, something luke/Histaxin probably lacked the expertise to do, and thus remove a potential enemy for Russia from the game. Elcyion and Pilis had thus resisted playing any other country besides Russia, but when it became clear that they could as a nation benefit from doing so, Elcyion couldn't have been happier to take over the Ottomans.
However, Prussia blindsided me and gave Russia military access through their nation, forcing me to fight a two front war taking place in the Netherlands and China without a co-op, when Russia had one. This made an already hard war near impossible, and by the time I got a co-op I had already made so many mistakes due to the fact I could not focus on the war in Europe and Asia with as much care and attention as I would have liked to.
Luck. MP games generally don't involve starting edits, and holland isn't all that bad as far as MP nations go anyways.nightraider
Pewt's first screenie is of 1417, by which time you'd already formed NED. Was that owing to good luck, ie, high DIP ruler and claims on our rivals event, or was forced forming of NED pre-agreed owing to Holland being very underpowered compared to the other human controlled nations？
