17 Oct 14 UTC Spring, 1901: Privyet, everybody. Good luck!
18 Oct 14 UTC Spring, 1901: Guten tag allem! May the victory be sweet and the defeat not too bitter, wherever it shall fall.
19 Oct 14 UTC Autumn, 1901: Get those orders submitted kids!
22 Oct 14 UTC Autumn, 1902: Oh sure, pick on the big bad Russian just because he has 7 centers. England will have the same number as I very soon and France will follow soon after. How am I more powerful than they are? Especially when I have two fronts to worry about.
22 Oct 14 UTC Autumn, 1902: To be fair, you were the first to do it.
22 Oct 14 UTC Autumn, 1902: So you would prefer that we sit back and let you just take our lands - last I looked Austria and Germany border you. Are you just going to sit and wait if the western powers fight it out?
22 Oct 14 UTC Autumn, 1902: I didn't touch your land. I even held St. Petersburg as a show of good faith. That was despite the fact that your benevolent English overlord was urging me to launch a full scale attack on you since 1901.

You stand to gain what from this exactly? Warsaw? That won't do you much good in a couple of turns, when English fleets take in Holland and Denmark. Look at the board. Once I'm out of St. Petersburg, he's going to bury the knife in your spine. Nobody can help you then. Austria and I will be near dead and France will be too busy pissing around in the med to do anything.

Western Triples always end badly for Germany. This one will be over as soon as England takes St. Petersburg and has nowhere to expand except inTo one of his allies. You're the soft target, not France. England is playing with you like an action figure.
23 Oct 14 UTC Autumn, 1902: The only reason I'm near dead Russia, is because you and Turkey decided to gang up and shut me out of negotiations. You can lie to my and take my lands, but if you try to fight england, Austria and Germany at the same time, you're clearly going to fail. I'm not sure how much diplomacy you've played before, but you can't just take the RT juggernaut and expect it to carry you to victory. You still need to cooperate with other players from time to time.
26 Oct 14 UTC Autumn, 1903: It'll be cool to see a Turkish solo, they don't happen enough.
26 Oct 14 UTC Autumn, 1903: Hi all. New gov in Russia. I will try to keep it interesting.
27 Oct 14 UTC Autumn, 1903: Welcome to the game
27 Oct 14 UTC Autumn, 1903: Haha. Can't believe Russia left the game. Lost interest I guess :) Or maybe I was too mean to him...
29 Oct 14 UTC Autumn, 1904: Looks like Turkey is going for the solo :)
29 Oct 14 UTC Autumn, 1904: Spicy.
30 Oct 14 UTC Autumn, 1904: I'd rather not go for the solo if it means I'm going to get killed by everyone :P So Germany, England, France, I'm happy with a draw once it's us 4 left :)
30 Oct 14 UTC Autumn, 1904: What about enduring Austria who's survived so much?
31 Oct 14 UTC Autumn, 1905: If I'm the only one who thinks so I won't hold up the draw vote, but I'd prefer not to draw until it is an actual stalemate.
31 Oct 14 UTC Autumn, 1905: Well I would prefer the draw for what it's worth
01 Nov 14 UTC Autumn, 1905: I personally don't see the point in drawing if the game still has places to go, but I hardly have a ton of influence at this point, so I'll just go with what everyone wants.
01 Nov 14 UTC Autumn, 1905: The draw vote would be ideal once there are only 3 or 4 players left
01 Nov 14 UTC Autumn, 1905: Turkey makes a good point, LET'S WIPE HIM OUT! :p
05 Nov 14 UTC Spring, 1907: Good game, all. :)
05 Nov 14 UTC Spring, 1907: You too! Good luck next time!
15 Nov 14 UTC Autumn, 1910: Sorry about that missed turn everyone
15 Nov 14 UTC Autumn, 1910: yes how unfortunate
20 Nov 14 UTC Autumn, 1912: I expect no one to trust me about my last moves so I'm going to let this year finish to show through action.
21 Nov 14 UTC Autumn, 1912: I'm up for a draw at this point.
22 Nov 14 UTC Autumn, 1912: The only one who hasn't accepted a draw is France, so we'll see what they want.
22 Nov 14 UTC An entire turn has passed without France voting draw. I will keep my draw vote in place, but will return to moving against France and coordinating with others to do so. Thus if France votes draw, the moves well never be enacted, and if they delay in voting draw they will be brought to heel forcibly or destroyed so the rest of us can get on with the draw.
22 Nov 14 UTC Thank you France.
