04 Apr 14 UTC Autumn, 1903: I'm surprised germany is still alive! At least Austria was trying to stay alive.
04 Apr 14 UTC Autumn, 1903: Who says I wasn't trying to stay alive. I was working my angles, thought England might help out with that.
04 Apr 14 UTC Spring, 1904: Leaving all of your major supply centers open to one country while running a suicide blitz campaign against another hardly seems like self-preservation. It also throws the balance off the game.
04 Apr 14 UTC Spring, 1904: And the reason why you're in this mess is because England betrayed you a few seasons ago!You Germans really need a lesson on who to trust.
04 Apr 14 UTC Spring, 1904: England denounces these accusations of treacherous activity. We would never. Hey France, I'm ready to make the English Channel a DMZ now. 3rd times a charm, right?
04 Apr 14 UTC Spring, 1904: So leaving supply centers that you can't hold onto and going after other ones is hardly suicide. It is risky. But with both Russia and England coming after me I had only one choice which was to go on the offensive in hopes that I could pick up a few supply centers to keep me in the game. I am not going to play if it is just going to sit and try to hold on to countries that will be taken anyway in the next few seasons, I am actually going to do something and hopefully try to convince people to help me out. It didn't work, but did I have another option? The French, always not minding their own business, yet never having the balls to take anything besides Canada. A bunch of frogs.
04 Apr 14 UTC Spring, 1904: Supporting England into Berlin and Sweden doesn't count as picking up a few supply centers to survive! anyway, if there is one thing I have learned about sharing a border with Germany, is that I have no idea what he is ever going to do
04 Apr 14 UTC Spring, 1904: also, why can't England keep his hands off of France's Brest? (sorry someone had to do it)
04 Apr 14 UTC Spring, 1904: haha! seriously! Although, to be fair, it was kinda sticking out there in the channel.
04 Apr 14 UTC Spring, 1904: Supporting England into Berlin does mean surviving when it means that Holland and Kiel would have still been open for at least a season and I would have only lost Berlin. And that means I would have had more time to take some supplies centers from your communist ass. For Christ sake people do I need to tell everyone everything I am thinking. Next time I will just sit in my countries and wait until I get pushed out because then it will be completely obvious for you and then completely boring for me.

05 Apr 14 UTC Spring, 1904: Boring and obvious is what it means to be Deutsch! Take some pride, Mein Herr!
05 Apr 14 UTC Spring, 1904: Seriously though, I didn't mean to comment on play styles, just voicing what it looks like from the outside. Obviously in this game there are always hidden motives, secret plans, double-triple-dog-dare backstabs with a communist cherry on top.
05 Apr 14 UTC Spring, 1904: Are you calling me a Douche? How rude!!!! I hope you and humpty dumpty over there in England fall off the Berlin Wall.
05 Apr 14 UTC Spring, 1904: my apologies Germany, didn't mean to fuel the fire of international controversy. Your units in the end are yours and I was not trying to demand explanation.
05 Apr 14 UTC Spring, 1904: (also, unpredictability is mind-wracking to play against)
05 Apr 14 UTC Spring, 1904: Oh yeah? Well go shove an icicle up your butt!!! I paid Rasputin to slowly poison you.
05 Apr 14 UTC Spring, 1904: Whoa did anyone realize that Putin is part of Rasputin? And the legend is that Rasputin can't be killed - no wonder Putin can wrestle bears!!!
05 Apr 14 UTC Spring, 1904: By the way I am not really upset. I am the first person to tell you that I messed up and played it poorly in the end, and then made desperate, risky moves in the end, only to have it punch me in the face. You guys all played a good game, especially Russia and England.
05 Apr 14 UTC Spring, 1904: You can tell Rasputin to find me at the Brandenburg Gate, and to bring plenty of poison, I take it as a chaser with my vodka regularly.
05 Apr 14 UTC Spring, 1904: ok thats good, I always worry about this game, because I know even with the best intentions, things can go to crap lol
05 Apr 14 UTC Spring, 1904: also

05 Apr 14 UTC Spring, 1904: Bah! Our former governator would have wrestled the bear to the ground and be smoking a cigar over it's skinned corpse. (By the way, Arnold's an Austrian patriot, so watch out)
FF
07 Apr 14 UTC Spring, 1904: I never know what the heck is going on in The Balkans
08 Apr 14 UTC Spring, 1904: All in all, a most satisfactory move in the Balkans.
FF
12 Apr 14 UTC Autumn, 1904: anyone reconsidering their moves?
12 Apr 14 UTC Autumn, 1904: I think the servers went down for awhile, so turns got delayed
12 Apr 14 UTC Autumn, 1904: This map sure is turning purple fast!
13 Apr 14 UTC Autumn, 1904: I seem to recall sometime around the first turn warning against the perils of the Northern alliance (Russia/England). Nobody listened. I admit I collaborated with Russia last turn, but he offered me something and nobody else did, and I took a chance to gain a supply center. Unfortunately (for me) it didn't work out. Now, I die-parting is such sweet sorrow, etc. But Russia is your problem now.
FF
15 Apr 14 UTC Spring, 1905: Ah, it's beautiful in Belgrade this time of year. I was sad to lose my hunting lodges in Hungary-I had 41414 trophies in it. Oh well, had a fine shoot in the country-shot 13579 deer, and one coelocanth (odd!). Well, must run-I have an eclipse to watch. I hear they're good luck.
FF
17 Apr 14 UTC Spring, 1905: Wait, you got a coelocanth while hunting? Or was it fishing?
17 Apr 14 UTC Spring, 1905: Bagged it swimming in a fountain; unfortunately fountain also destroyed.
FF
18 Apr 14 UTC Autumn, 1905: Word of advice to England: Please don't start fighting a war amongst yourself! You'll get nowhere competing for your own territory!
18 Apr 14 UTC Autumn, 1905: I think Holland wants to secede
18 Apr 14 UTC Autumn, 1905: I am curious what the Bohemian soldiers are thinking right now
18 Apr 14 UTC Autumn, 1905: lol I just saw that... oh the English, what a bunch of silly blokes!
21 Apr 14 UTC Autumn, 1905: oh man, things just got hot in here
21 Apr 14 UTC Autumn, 1905: I am beginning to think the English mis-convoy was all a ruse!
07 May 14 UTC Spring, 1907: well, that was indeed an interesting round!time for my thinking cap
12 May 14 UTC Autumn, 1907: Just visiting my friend and fellow monarch, King Zog, when I came across all these Russians. Odd.
FF
23 May 14 UTC Autumn, 1908: Ok, do we want to draw now or let Jonny pick one more up?
23 May 14 UTC Autumn, 1908: No difference to me, if we want to finish it out, we can ready up orders pretty quick, don't need to take 3 days for each phase. Not that it is a huge deal, but any idea how webdiplomacy counts draws? do they award points based on current worth? and will "survival" be counted? or does the game have to reach a victory condition for those?
23 May 14 UTC Autumn, 1908: If you're concerned about the points we should finish out. I think in the case of a draw the points are split evenly among the surviving countries, so we would each get a third of the 70 point pot.

23 May 14 UTC Autumn, 1908: I don't think they count it as survival, just drawn.
23 May 14 UTC Autumn, 1908: ah ok, I can go either way no big, not too concerned with points. Just want to make sure I honor my deals with players
23 May 14 UTC Autumn, 1908: yeah, no difference to me. i just wanted to finish this up before i start to forget to put orders in.
23 May 14 UTC Autumn, 1908: think we are making a motion to make this a draw. Do turkey and italy need to vote too since they are not technically eliminated yet?
23 May 14 UTC Autumn, 1908: Yeah, it seems that way.
23 May 14 UTC Autumn, 1908: well, i know adam is away at a wedding, so probably no resolution until he gets back
