01 Jan 14 UTC Spring, 1901: Good Luck, Everyone.
01 Jan 14 UTC Autumn, 1902: I'm back totally forgot about this
01 Jan 14 UTC Autumn, 1902: yay
01 Jan 14 UTC Autumn, 1902: Welcome to the game, England...
01 Jan 14 UTC Autumn, 1902: I guess I am still pretty fucked though..
01 Jan 14 UTC Spring, 1903: In a tight spot, yes.
01 Jan 14 UTC Autumn, 1904: Glad I'm a fast typist...
01 Jan 14 UTC Autumn, 1905: back, but too late
01 Jan 14 UTC Autumn, 1905: Oui, oui, monsieur.
01 Jan 14 UTC Autumn, 1905: time to draw or will R and A let Germany solo?
01 Jan 14 UTC Spring, 1906: Happy New Year from East Coast
01 Jan 14 UTC Autumn, 1906: Thanks! 2 hours away in the Mountain zone.
01 Jan 14 UTC Autumn, 1906: wow, you are behind, our new years in Oz was 15 hours ago.
01 Jan 14 UTC Autumn, 1906: damn time zone, scientist still can't prove it
01 Jan 14 UTC Autumn, 1906: can we just draw? with all teh CDs it really is a waste of any more time.
01 Jan 14 UTC Autumn, 1906: Gotta visit Oz one of these days.
01 Jan 14 UTC Autumn, 1907: Dang...sure hope I know what I'm doing!
01 Jan 14 UTC Autumn, 1907: Time to draw,
01 Jan 14 UTC Autumn, 1907: Really...not up for just a little bit more fighting....
01 Jan 14 UTC Autumn, 1907: Lot of draw votes on the board....
01 Jan 14 UTC Autumn, 1907: Unfortunately, Germany, you made your move for solo one year too early.
01 Jan 14 UTC Autumn, 1907: On the other hand...I could Really use a smoke...
01 Jan 14 UTC One year too early...you might be exactly right...all about the timing...these 3 minute turns are tough...
01 Jan 14 UTC five minute turns...
01 Jan 14 UTC Good Game Lads...
01 Jan 14 UTC So...postmortem...do you think if I had let the Russo-Austrian war against the Ottoman go on one more year THEN attacked it would have all worked out? I know I got greedy...but, gosh, I've never pulled off a solo in a WTA.
01 Jan 14 UTC Back in a bit...I hear a cigarette calling me...
01 Jan 14 UTC this is one i haven't been overly doublecrossed and rape while pillagers laugh at my stupidity. I still haven't learn not to truss you ass-hats
01 Jan 14 UTC Glad you got some points out of it. Yeah...if I see the chance for a solo I'll usually take it...all about the timing. Because of the brevity of the turns, I didn't have much time for analysis. Here is the metaphor I like...if the people you want to stab (in this case the Honorable Arch Duke and the Great Czar) are in a war with someone else (in this case the Sultan) and their Fists are bumped up against one another, it is a Bad time to stab...the belligerents can make peace and unite against the ass-hat. When your allies are at war and their fingers are all intertwined, THAT is the time to stab...the situation is too complex for the belligerents to work out a peace...in this case, you were just fist bumping, saber rattling...your units weren't sufficiently messed up with each other.
01 Jan 14 UTC Btw, I never laugh at "stupidity" (inexperience, really). I always feel bad about a stab...but I do love a solo.
01 Jan 14 UTC Wow! Look at that score the Ottoman has!
