29 Aug 14 UTC Autumn, 1902: Agreed.
29 Aug 14 UTC Autumn, 1902: This is my first game on this system. Albeit I have been playing for years. The arrows are nice to show the moves, but distracting when trying to see the map clearly.
29 Aug 14 UTC Autumn, 1902: Why didn't my fleet bounce Russia out of the Black Sea?
29 Aug 14 UTC Spring, 1903: I am confused...Didn't my orders get processed?
29 Aug 14 UTC Spring, 1903: You didn't have any support. To force a unit to retreat, you need to attack it with support.
29 Aug 14 UTC Spring, 1903: I think I just got robbed by the system.
29 Aug 14 UTC Spring, 1903: My orders...f ankara - black sea should bounce russia's order f sevastopol - black sea
29 Aug 14 UTC Spring, 1903: I am already in the black sea
29 Aug 14 UTC Spring, 1903: No, you didn't. You ordered ank-bla. Russia ordered bla H. That results in a 1-1 tie. His unit does not retreat. If you had, a fleet in con or bul, you could have ordered F con S ank-bla, and then you would have gotten in.
29 Aug 14 UTC Spring, 1903: you missed a phase and I went into the black sea
29 Aug 14 UTC Spring, 1903: My orders...f ankara - black sea should bounce russia's order f sevastopol - black sea
29 Aug 14 UTC Spring, 1903: You missed a phase turkey.
29 Aug 14 UTC Autumn, 1903: He didn't order f sev-bla. He was already in bla. You can go back and look.
29 Aug 14 UTC Autumn, 1903: This sucks
29 Aug 14 UTC Autumn, 1903: My map isn't getting automatically updated
29 Aug 14 UTC Autumn, 1903: When it says NOW in beg red letters up in the top right, you should refresh or hit a new tab, so that the map updates for you.
29 Aug 14 UTC Autumn, 1903: How do I get the map to update without doing a refresh in the browser?
29 Aug 14 UTC Autumn, 1903: Thanks
29 Aug 14 UTC Autumn, 1903: Click on a different chat tab. Like if you are looking at the global, just switch to chat with Russia or Germany or something.
29 Aug 14 UTC Autumn, 1903: Thanks
29 Aug 14 UTC Autumn, 1903: I like the speed of the game. But I don't like the arrows and I don't like that I missed a move!!!! But it is still fun.
29 Aug 14 UTC Autumn, 1903: Yeah. Once you get used to the interface, you should be fine. Missing that one phase really did hurt you, though :(
29 Aug 14 UTC Spring, 1904: ITALY: Why the move to Bohemia?
29 Aug 14 UTC Spring, 1904: Germany declares war upon the traitors in Italy.
29 Aug 14 UTC Spring, 1904: A very real pre-emptive military response to your shadowy tactics.
29 Aug 14 UTC Autumn, 1904: smoke if you got 'em
29 Aug 14 UTC Autumn, 1905: Well, I'll play a defensive match, although it tends to seem that everyone is more or less committed to a three-way. C'est la vie.
29 Aug 14 UTC Spring, 1906: Dunno about that.
29 Aug 14 UTC Spring, 1906: Good game England!
29 Aug 14 UTC Spring, 1906: Well played england, thanks for staying in the game!
29 Aug 14 UTC Spring, 1906: Oh man don't be mad, it's just a game =-(
29 Aug 14 UTC Autumn, 1906: Thanks for the match, guys.
29 Aug 14 UTC Autumn, 1906: Good game germany! Best of luck
29 Aug 14 UTC Autumn, 1906: Good game, mate
29 Aug 14 UTC Autumn, 1907: apparently my serbian unit didn't want to help lol
29 Aug 14 UTC Autumn, 1907: Yeah that's what I figured lol. Was trying to avoid this with my pre-emptive stab on russia, didn't work as well as i hoped.
29 Aug 14 UTC Autumn, 1907: Well, I figured you were pressing hard for the solo. I felt like, for the integrity of the game, I had to prevent a solo.
29 Aug 14 UTC Spring, 1908: Wow, Russia left?
29 Aug 14 UTC Spring, 1908: yeah that's actually so dumb.
29 Aug 14 UTC Spring, 1908: Well, if he misses the next phase and resigns, we could draw, and I don't think he would be credited with one.
29 Aug 14 UTC Spring, 1908: look at my beautiful tactical retreat through austria... for nothing :(
29 Aug 14 UTC Spring, 1908: I'd be ok with a two way draw if that happens.
29 Aug 14 UTC Spring, 1908: yup.. and i was planning on him moving from finland to stp, and i was gonna get finland..
29 Aug 14 UTC Autumn, 1908: How bout this.. I take Berlin. You take warsaw/moscow, and we draw like champs. We could fight till a winner if you want, or we could draw.
29 Aug 14 UTC Autumn, 1908: Your plan sounds good. Draw like champs, shake hands, and for once the french and italians get along to their mutual benefit.
29 Aug 14 UTC Autumn, 1908: doesn't mean I'm not going to "aggressively defend" though
29 Aug 14 UTC Autumn, 1908: Absolutely. As will i.
29 Aug 14 UTC Great! Shall we draw! Great game, sir!
29 Aug 14 UTC Good game, my friend. Well played too.
29 Aug 14 UTC See you around, best of luck in the future
