25 Apr 13 UTC Autumn, 21: You're such a wuss, Joey.
29 Apr 13 UTC Spring, 22: if i have to read more than 3 sentences in a joke it's automatically not funny
29 Apr 13 UTC Spring, 22: Yeah Joey you suck
30 Apr 13 UTC Spring, 22: So, at this points it's up to you on whether or not I'm a help or hindrance with only one SC. This turn I'll help however I can with Aegean though with the sea battles. Then you can decide what to do after I lose Sparta.
30 Apr 13 UTC Spring, 22: Woops, lolz.
30 Apr 13 UTC Spring, 22: That was to Dylan
01 May 13 UTC Spring, 22: My brain hurts. It would be a lot easier if you could just tell me what you are doing Dylan.
02 May 13 UTC Autumn, 22: I am the master
02 May 13 UTC Autumn, 22: I see only 50-50 chances for you to take anything.
02 May 13 UTC Autumn, 22: I am the master
06 May 13 UTC Autumn, 22: I AM THE MASTER
06 May 13 UTC Autumn, 22: http://cdn.memegenerator.net/instances/400x/36936051.jpg pretty much sums up my feelings.
06 May 13 UTC Autumn, 22: I think you broke the internet
06 May 13 UTC Autumn, 22: why is that?
06 May 13 UTC Autumn, 22: I can't use that link with my iPhone.
06 May 13 UTC Autumn, 22: maybe this game will finally be over
06 May 13 UTC Autumn, 22: Yea, it is looking like it. A few short years might yield the end.
06 May 13 UTC Autumn, 22: I AM THE MASTER
07 May 13 UTC Autumn, 22: You sound like a parrot.
07 May 13 UTC Autumn, 22: i vote we draw and say no hard feelings?
07 May 13 UTC Autumn, 22: No you didn't.
07 May 13 UTC Autumn, 22: There is a draw button near the bottom, below the map and above everyone's name.
08 May 13 UTC Autumn, 22: Although, I'm not too sure how well a draw would apply in this situation. Dylan did in fact beat us, because we were not able to stop him and force a draw. He did good this game, I'm not even sure where we, and myself in particular, went wrong. There isn't really any particular instance where I can say "That was the reason that Dylan won".
08 May 13 UTC Autumn, 22: Too bad there's no surrender button. It would save us another maybe week or two of mindless meat grinding.
08 May 13 UTC Autumn, 22: Week or two might be an exaggeration, and there might be a chance of survival.
08 May 13 UTC Spring, 23: GGWP
08 May 13 UTC Spring, 23: I don't know what that means.
08 May 13 UTC Spring, 23: Good God, you're a Whiney Player.
08 May 13 UTC Spring, 23: Joey, I don't approve of your stupid capitalization for no reason. And I think it means "good game, well played"
08 May 13 UTC Spring, 23: Wait
08 May 13 UTC Spring, 23: I'm retarded.
08 May 13 UTC Autumn, 23: i agree dylan you are retarded!
08 May 13 UTC Autumn, 23: you guys should join my game, World Style - no private messages
09 May 13 UTC Autumn, 23: Should I be embarrassed that I have learned more geography playing webdip, rather than in Social Studies class? Like seriously, I'm not confident that I could have told you that Crete and Cyprus were both islands in the Mediterranean let alone the approximate location.
09 May 13 UTC Autumn, 23: and by the last "the" I meant "their"
09 May 13 UTC Autumn, 23: I already learned this geography from Rome: Total War. Lol.
09 May 13 UTC Autumn, 23: You know, friendly fire is a real thing and you just 2v1'd your unit in Macedonia. Totally should've destroyed it.
09 May 13 UTC Autumn, 23: Lol. Well it makes more sense than just straight-up bouncing one's self. That makes literally NO sense.
09 May 13 UTC Autumn, 23: Also, as a tank I should totally be able to move into Mace from the top section with a fleet trying to stop me. Don't think the guns can reach that far accurately.
09 May 13 UTC Autumn, 23: If we're going all literal and realistic now, it's not as if the men on the boats can't leave the boats. They're fully capable of protecting a coastal territory. The just can't leave farther inland than 1 territory deep because they have to stay near the boats.
09 May 13 UTC Autumn, 23: As this game comes to a close, what are your chances of playing another game? I would prefer to take a 1 or 2 week gap before I play another game, but I enjoy playing with you guys much more than with random people that I don't know.

If you would be up for it, I was thinking about getting 2 more people so that we could do the 7-player map. I was thinking Nick Harris, if no one had any objections. He seems plenty smart enough to understand, and he knows most of us. I don't know. Hopefully someone else too. Anyways, thoughts?
09 May 13 UTC Autumn, 23: Over the summer sounds good to me. Not sure if I'd be up for playing once school starts up again though. Would rather focus my attention on that.
09 May 13 UTC Autumn, 23: It's as if you think this is a big time commitment. As if you think you need to spend 1.5 hours on this every day. You could literally use 10 minutes every 3 days.
10 May 13 UTC Autumn, 23: if you guys do another game lets make it a 1, 1.5 or 2 day phase, not three. thats too long. like dylan said it really shouldn't take that long to make your decision.
10 May 13 UTC Autumn, 23: welcome to the dark side eric.... at least i still have Lusitania
10 May 13 UTC Autumn, 23: Well yes, it doesn't take even 10 minutes to input orders, although if you plan on talking at all with other people then a 1 day phase is pushing beyond the limit. Even talking doesn't take a whole lot of time. Even a good sized paragraph takes under 4 minutes to type.

I would be fine with 2 day phases, although anything less than that is kind of pushing it for me.
10 May 13 UTC Spring, 24: I have Cor still! :D
11 May 13 UTC Spring, 24: hey eric, wana join forces to take down dylan? my super army and your fishing fleet can team up and take him down. i'll go after saguntum and you go after sar. he won't stand a chance!!!
12 May 13 UTC Alright, at 1 I sent a facebook message to Nick, at 2:50 he saw it and has not responded. I guess I'll wait 'till tmr night before I assume his answer is an implied "no". One of you guys should message him too, because peer pressure gets stuff done.
12 May 13 UTC Game over.
