21 Dec 12 UTC Autumn, 1904: I am officially pulling out of the war against Russia. Clearly Italy wants to pick a fight with me. He's getting one.
21 Dec 12 UTC Autumn, 1904: you can't leave an SC open and just wish that I don't take it....
21 Dec 12 UTC Autumn, 1904: You can't just take an SC, open or not, and wish I don't wage a war on you.
21 Dec 12 UTC Spring, 1905: I'm not wishing for nothing....
21 Dec 12 UTC Spring, 1905: Ready up Germany?
21 Dec 12 UTC Spring, 1905: I like taking my time talking to people. 5 mins is short enough as is.
21 Dec 12 UTC Spring, 1905: I like taking my time talking to people. 5 mins is short enough as is.
21 Dec 12 UTC Autumn, 1905: Ok
22 Dec 12 UTC Spring, 1906: And thus I am second out of the game. ;D
22 Dec 12 UTC Spring, 1906: And thus I am second out of the game. ;D
22 Dec 12 UTC Autumn, 1907: Still have red on the board! :DDD
22 Dec 12 UTC Autumn, 1907: lol
22 Dec 12 UTC Autumn, 1907: that will change this round, I'm guessing... right Italy?
22 Dec 12 UTC Autumn, 1907: want to draw this guys?
22 Dec 12 UTC Autumn, 1907: I'm fine with a draw.
22 Dec 12 UTC Autumn, 1907: the rest?
22 Dec 12 UTC Autumn, 1907: Ready up turkey
22 Dec 12 UTC Autumn, 1907: 5 way draw?!? Really?!?
22 Dec 12 UTC Autumn, 1907: i'm obviously not thrilled about it, but otherwise this will be endless
22 Dec 12 UTC Autumn, 1907: England, draw
22 Dec 12 UTC Autumn, 1907: pardon?
22 Dec 12 UTC Autumn, 1907: Endless? The game is getting good
22 Dec 12 UTC Autumn, 1907: the game's been good for a while actually.
22 Dec 12 UTC Spring, 1908: It's 1907 still early
22 Dec 12 UTC Spring, 1908: I suspect Italy wants a draw as his fortunes have tuned a bit
22 Dec 12 UTC Spring, 1908: I suspect Italy wants a draw as his fortunes have tuned a bit
22 Dec 12 UTC Autumn, 1908: i actually have to go... so i was hoping for a draw
22 Dec 12 UTC Autumn, 1908: No, he's actually doing well against me.
22 Dec 12 UTC Autumn, 1908: The game is young 08 only... You should stay
22 Dec 12 UTC Autumn, 1908: could we draw now?
22 Dec 12 UTC Autumn, 1908: Why?
22 Dec 12 UTC Autumn, 1908: 5 way draws are lame
22 Dec 12 UTC Autumn, 1909: Italy ideally wants to draw since E/F is going to break through his lines in Italy faster than he can beat Turkey. Russia and Turkey clearly want to draw since they're weak powers. England wants to go for a solo so he's against the draw. France I'm not sure. On one hand, chances are England stabs him for a solo. On the other hand, he can still end in a better position by pressing Italy
22 Dec 12 UTC Autumn, 1909: So says the ghost of the Kaiser!
22 Dec 12 UTC Spring, 1910: Basically everything Germany is saying is true
22 Dec 12 UTC Spring, 1910: I think what Italy might be trying to do is eliminate Russia and Turkey and hope that he can help the weaker power in the 3 way fight at the end to hold a draw
22 Dec 12 UTC Spring, 1910: if i do get turkey and russia, I won't go for the draw....
22 Dec 12 UTC Spring, 1910: If you do get us both your lines are going to be broken and England and France will destroy you
22 Dec 12 UTC Autumn, 1910: not so sure about that alliance...
22 Dec 12 UTC Autumn, 1910: The Afterlife gives you a surprisingly impartial and honest view of the board, what with all ulterior motives wiped clean since you no longer play. Consider me an observer of sorts.

Italy, if you get Russia and Turkey, you probably won't have any home SCs to build from leaving you in a precarious position.

France, you are clearly at a disadvantage to england, numerically and geographically. He'll probably stab 2-3 years at the at least unless thigns go horribly wrong for him.
22 Dec 12 UTC Autumn, 1910: I stand correct. Solo push.
22 Dec 12 UTC Spring, 1911: warsaw vienna paris is lost. Only hope is a stalemate line.
22 Dec 12 UTC Spring, 1911: France can hold Spain. Russia the north with italy supporting. Italy has to hold the middle. Turkey - just don't be a pest.
22 Dec 12 UTC Spring, 1911: it's clearly england's game to lose right now
22 Dec 12 UTC Spring, 1911: but if france can pull his own, he doesn't have an easy win
22 Dec 12 UTC Spring, 1911: why would france do that????
22 Dec 12 UTC good game all
22 Dec 12 UTC Nice game everyone! Merry Xmas and happy new year!
22 Dec 12 UTC I think he hopes to use it to tie down multiple fleets and harass england. The move back to Tunis was stupid. Tyrr and Nap holding equally dumb. Italy should ahve moved Sev to ukr.

Now warssaw is a sure loss. Turkey wants england to win lol
22 Dec 12 UTC The point of working together is clearly lost upon you people. England nice game. Well played.
