19 Feb 14 UTC Spring, 1906: @France to show my trust in your potential, despite your attacks last turn, i will not attack you this turn.
19 Feb 14 UTC Spring, 1906: OK then France, let's see how it goes. I would definitely welcome a bit of stability in the west.
19 Feb 14 UTC Spring, 1906: Appreciate it Austria.
19 Feb 14 UTC Spring, 1906: England and Germany- you guys are awesome. Trust is restored in the west.
20 Feb 14 UTC Spring, 1906: @engjand. You judge me too hastily. I just fear you'll waltz into Berlin. As soon as I agree!
20 Feb 14 UTC Spring, 1906: I'm not sure what that means but I am in no position to attack you.
20 Feb 14 UTC Spring, 1906: I think he accidently re-posted an old comment.
20 Feb 14 UTC Autumn, 1906: This game's been kind of crazy and it seems just about everyone is here to stay. All we're doing is trading centers and since Turkey's just given up and left that kind of gives an unfair advantage here in the east (if only a small one). What do you say we just call this one a draw?
21 Feb 14 UTC Autumn, 1906: I'll put in a draw too. I was willing to give the whole East vs. West thing a go, and just see what happened, but it doesn't look like that's going ahead now. Although, I'm definitely up for redefining 'East' to be everyone but France and still doing it!
21 Feb 14 UTC Autumn, 1906: France, didn't you just sue for peace a turn or two ago...?
21 Feb 14 UTC Autumn, 1906: My bad Austria, that was a miss-communication on my part.
23 Feb 14 UTC Spring, 1907: Germany, I know it's probably a bit late now, but are you moving to North Sea or shall I?
23 Feb 14 UTC Spring, 1907: Russia, go for Rumania this turn if you want.
23 Feb 14 UTC Spring, 1907: @england my move is set to North Sea. Can change.
23 Feb 14 UTC Spring, 1907: Keep it that way. I'll give you support
23 Feb 14 UTC Spring, 1907: Will do Austria, I trust you'll be going for Budapest. Make sure there isn't anywhere for Italy to slip through and escape. He's been quite good at that this game.
23 Feb 14 UTC Spring, 1907: England, I will let you keep St. Petersburg for now. You could use the extra unit to fight France.
24 Feb 14 UTC Autumn, 1907: Thank you, Russia. If I ever manage to gain anything back from France I shall gladly give it back to you. Unfortunately, I have no allies in the west, so that may never happen.
24 Feb 14 UTC Autumn, 1907: I can make due so long as France is kept at bay.
24 Feb 14 UTC Autumn, 1907: Let's get real here. A six way draw is lame. Italy will soon be out of the game leaving 5 of us. A little help from Rissia and Germany and we can finish off England. A four-way draw and everybody is happy.
26 Feb 14 UTC Spring, 1908: i'll help you France - but you need to promise to not attack me...
26 Feb 14 UTC Spring, 1908: I think it's worth me pointing out that Germany actually has fewer centres than me, so if you're looking to finish someone off that would be a good way to go, France. I can support you into Holland and cut Kiel's support. Meanwhile Munich is open so if Germany trusts you you've got another centre there.
26 Feb 14 UTC Spring, 1908: England, if you outlast Germany then I'll vote for a draw as well.
28 Feb 14 UTC Autumn, 1909: Okay, although it might sound like I'm only saying this because I missed last phase and am now on the back foot I think it's about time we all realised France is going to walk in this game.
01 Mar 14 UTC Autumn, 1909: Ya, sorry about that Austria. I literally changed my orders in the last 5 minutes when I saw you were going to miss. I was worried I'd get stuck behind you while France grabbed your centers.
03 Mar 14 UTC Spring, 1910: Russia and Germany I hope you see my disband in Vienna as an act of peace as I look to see off the immediate threat of France. I hope you understand that in attacking me you will only end up losing the long game.
03 Mar 14 UTC Spring, 1910: I'm not going to attack you any further Austria. I'll support your line so France can't move any further.
Germany, I'm going to move a single unit into Silesia to support Munich's position.

Attacking either of you at this point would be counterproductive so I will merely assist in holding your defensive lines.
04 Mar 14 UTC Spring, 1910: I'm glad we're all in agreement about supporting Greece
05 Mar 14 UTC Autumn, 1910: Germany, what was that? I told you I was going to help you and you attacked me while completely exposing yourself to France. Now Kiel is as good as gone.
05 Mar 14 UTC Autumn, 1910: oops
07 Mar 14 UTC Autumn, 1911: Alright, we all need to work together now
Russia, we need to set up some sort of containment line to prevent the French expansion.
Perhaps it would be wise to move to Bohemia? Maybe even Warsaw to Prussia? That way you could support Munich.
Additionally you could maybe do the same up North, move to Finland and move Moscow up to St.P.
Germany and Sweden you need to do your best to survive...
We have nothing to lose now.
07 Mar 14 UTC Autumn, 1911: Venice, Munich, Kiel, Denmark, and/or Sweden. There are the last SCs I can get and get the win. Russia, you may as well take all the SCs you can and get your points. The fewer players there are in the game the more likely I am to draw.
07 Mar 14 UTC Autumn, 1911: Germany, Denmark is set to support Berlin to Kiel.
07 Mar 14 UTC Autumn, 1911: I doubt that France. If I go after the weaker players that just makes it easier for you to win. If you win you win, but don't think I'll make it easy on you for the sake of points. I have plenty already.
07 Mar 14 UTC Autumn, 1911: Nice of you to call your allies "weaker players"
07 Mar 14 UTC Autumn, 1911: It's not an insult, merely an observation. Their forces are smaller. This is a game of numbers. If you have a small force you are weaker than someone with a larger force. Simple as that.
07 Mar 14 UTC Autumn, 1911: Also, the fact that you are trying to turn us against one another says a lot. You doubt your chances of success if the rest of us work together.

I trust England and Germany are on board with me and Austria?
07 Mar 14 UTC Autumn, 1911: I am indeed, Russia. Let me know if my few remaining forces can be of any use; I may be able to help you break into Norway or something later on.
08 Mar 14 UTC Autumn, 1911: I shouldn't be able to win this based on the numbers. It will only happen if you all make mistakes. But England and Germany only have 2 SCs and one of them needs to go before I'll draw.
08 Mar 14 UTC Autumn, 1911: Looks like that might be Germany. I can't really help him at this point.
08 Mar 14 UTC Autumn, 1911: It'll be easier for you to knock over England mate.
08 Mar 14 UTC Autumn, 1911: Germany, you had an opportunity to help me take on England earlier on the game but then you bailed on me.
08 Mar 14 UTC Spring, 1912: Germany, have Berlin attack Kiel this turn so France can't take it. I'll move behind Munich into Silesia to back you up. If France gets Munich it's over so it's crucial that you trust me on this one.
08 Mar 14 UTC Spring, 1912: *so France can't take Munich. My bad the sentence got cut off before I finished.
08 Mar 14 UTC Spring, 1912: Russia, I believe now may be a good time to try moving St. Petersburg to Norway, with support from Finland and Sweden. I'll put in the support order, but there's no need to comfirm whether you're making the move or not. It might be better to keep France guessing a bit.
09 Mar 14 UTC Spring, 1912: Looks like France has got this game. Well done. Several of your maneuvers were quite impressive.
11 Mar 14 UTC Autumn, 1912: Perhaps I spoke too soon. That was an interesting choice of moves France.
13 Mar 14 UTC I knew you'd do the right thing Russia.
13 Mar 14 UTC Well I don't know if it was the right thing, but you would have won anyway so I figured it was the smart thing to do. Good game. Well played all around.
14 Mar 14 UTC Sorry I missed that last phase
Well played France, you made Germany and England look like fools tbh.
