30 Apr 14 UTC Spring, 2012: [Oz]:Near East, What did you have in mind for the Indian Ocean?
30 Apr 14 UTC Spring, 2012: [China]:Cant you just leave me alone?
30 Apr 14 UTC Spring, 2012: [Oz]:To whom are you referring? I am certainly leaving you alone; and have done so all game. You have very little exposure on the Indian Ocean.
30 Apr 14 UTC Spring, 2012: [China]:NE and WC
30 Apr 14 UTC Spring, 2012: [Oz]:Okay. Thanks. Is it time to draw yet?
30 Apr 14 UTC Spring, 2012: [China]:96 divided by 5, fine by me.
01 May 14 UTC Autumn, 2012: [Near-East]:Oz, I don't want any of your SCs in Oceania or Antarctica. I respect your sovereignty there. I would like to use the Indian Ocean as a launching point into Africa, since Ghana is currently the strongest and it's important to limit his growth. I'll support your hold in Southwest Indian if you would like.
01 May 14 UTC Autumn, 2012: [Ghana]:Hey, I'm biggest but I have fought off the African Hordes well. Getting out of Africa is a bitch! :)
07 May 14 UTC Spring, 2014: [Near-East]:Ghana, it seems we may need to cooperate soon. I have mentioned before that it would be very hard for either of us to profit over the other. Perhaps we should stop? I think otherwise we'll both end up losing. My moves this turn will hopefully be a good gesture to start us off on a 'reset' of relations.

Oz, please also let me know how I may help you out.
07 May 14 UTC Spring, 2014: [Ghana]:That pesky Canada is a worry. I say the rest of us declare JIHAD on him until he learns his place! :)
07 May 14 UTC Spring, 2014: [Oz]:Dear Neighbors Ghana and Near East, Please know that I wish only cordial relations with both of you; and I have no designs on Africa or Asia. I am happy to join both of you in containing Canada. Toward that end, I do need free passage of my fleets through the bodies of water under Africa; and off the Eastern Coast of Asia. I request that you not enter West Atlantic of NE Indian or Southern Indian Oceans. Thank you.
07 May 14 UTC Spring, 2014: [Quebec]:If I may suggest you each take a line, Oz moves up the Pacific and Western side of Brazil, Ghana goes across the Atlantic and Eastern side of Brazil If the two of you dmz Southwest and Southeast Indian you can create a nice little bit of space between each other.
If Near East focusses on killing of the noob that is China and retakes Asia while rotating fleets through Egypt (which you can do without worrying about Ghana stopping you) you could also create some space in the Indian Ocean which if all three of you dmz the North Indian Oceans you would all be able to make the most of your wars.
But that's just my unbiased opinion
07 May 14 UTC Spring, 2014: [Quebec]:of course if Ghana rotated his fleets out of the North and replaced them with army's and eventually the Mediterranean and the Red Sea become dmzs then that would only help strengthen things. Plus you can always go back to your stalemate lines once you have contained your problem.
08 May 14 UTC Autumn, 2014: [Oz]:Agreed; but I need passage through SE Atlantic.
08 May 14 UTC Autumn, 2014: [Near-East]:I agree to everything previously said by Oz and Ghana.

Ghana, what do you think about QB's suggestions? Clearly, our fleets are not being put to best use at the moment.
08 May 14 UTC Autumn, 2014: [Ghana]:Passage through the SE Atlantic is troublesome for obvious reasons for me. I say OZ, you attack via the Pacific, I will attack via the South Atlantic, NE, you take the North Atlantic. That way we don't have to 'assume the position' and can get on with the taming of Canada in our own ways until he is under control.
08 May 14 UTC Autumn, 2014: [Near-East]:Let's do it. We have to stick together.
08 May 14 UTC Autumn, 2014: [Ghana]:Yes, he's getting very powerful.
09 May 14 UTC Autumn, 2014: [Near-East]:Oz, let me know how my fleets in southeast Asia can support you.
09 May 14 UTC Autumn, 2014: [Oz]:How about if you gave my fleet NE Indian Ocean 2 supports into South China Sea? Alternatively, I could give one of your fleets several supports in. What's your pleasure?
10 May 14 UTC Autumn, 2014: [Western-Canada]:While you guys plan against me, I good for a 4-way draw
10 May 14 UTC Autumn, 2014: [Ghana]:I'm OK with that too. Draw guys?
10 May 14 UTC Autumn, 2014: [Ghana]:Need to take China out first.
10 May 14 UTC Autumn, 2014: [Western-Canada]:exactly 4way draw
10 May 14 UTC Autumn, 2014: [Quebec]:he's just scared cause you'll wreck him XD but a 4 way draws not bad in world dip
10 May 14 UTC Autumn, 2014: [Western-Canada]:Big talk for someone who got eliminated pretty quickly
10 May 14 UTC Autumn, 2014: [China]:WC can easily solo this, but okay
10 May 14 UTC Autumn, 2014: [China]:It was a good game guys
10 May 14 UTC Autumn, 2014: [Ghana]:Thanks China. :)
10 May 14 UTC Autumn, 2014: [Oz]:I voted for a draw.
10 May 14 UTC Autumn, 2014: [Ghana]:Lets kill China first Guys :)
10 May 14 UTC Autumn, 2014: [China]:No need :$
10 May 14 UTC Spring, 2015: [Quebec]:I said a four way draw is good for world diplomacy... but its true there is no way you can take on 3 other countries when they're not even that far behind you
10 May 14 UTC Spring, 2015: [Near-East]:Oz, I will support you into South China Sea. I feel like it's a more naturally Australian territory than a Near East One.

I would also be ok with a four way draw. One more year and we can call it complete.
12 May 14 UTC Autumn, 2015: [Oz]:Ghana, Play nice. No fair picking on my Antarctic holdings.
12 May 14 UTC Autumn, 2015: [Oz]:Near East, Would you be willing to support South China Sea to Guangzhou this turn? Moving your fleet Thailand to SCS behind my fleet would probably be a good idea. Also, please take Lanzhou. We can the roll up the Canadian possessions in East Asia, if he fails to go along with the draw. Let me know what you think.
13 May 14 UTC Autumn, 2015: [Near-East]:Sorry about missing the last turn. Let me know what your suggestions are for the next turn Oz.
13 May 14 UTC Autumn, 2015: [Quebec]:lol ghana
13 May 14 UTC Autumn, 2015: [Ghana]::) Lets take down China and wrap this up soon :)
13 May 14 UTC Spring, 2016: [Near-East]:Oz, support to Guanzhou from South China Sea is in.
13 May 14 UTC Spring, 2016: [Oz]:Thank you. I suggest that you follow me in.
14 May 14 UTC Spring, 2016: [Near-East]:Sure. Thailand will attempt to move to the South China Sea.
14 May 14 UTC Spring, 2016: [Quebec]:CHINA WILL SURVIVE!!!
15 May 14 UTC Autumn, 2016: [Oz]:Near East, I am supporting you into Shanghai from Lanzhou. Please use it. Please also support my fleet Philippines to Yellow Sea. Thank you.
15 May 14 UTC Autumn, 2016: [Near-East]:Will do.
16 May 14 UTC Autumn, 2016: [Western-Canada]:Let's draw now, near east
16 May 14 UTC Autumn, 2016: [Near-East]:That's my plan. We just need China to be defeated.
16 May 14 UTC Autumn, 2016: [Near-East]:Thank you for the support last turn Oz.
17 May 14 UTC [Near-East]:Good game folks.
18 May 14 UTC [Ghana]:Thanks Guys. I enjoyed the Camaraderie.
