30 Nov 14 UTC Autumn, 1906: You said you'd support to Ven.

Regardless, I am willing to accept Ionian as a DMZ, but not to have Turkish forces poised to strike at two of my SCs.
30 Nov 14 UTC Autumn, 1906: France, i will move Eng Channel to Bel, thanks. You have no fear from the English. We are focused on our natural enemies now.
30 Nov 14 UTC Autumn, 1906: Excellent! Let us fight together!
01 Dec 14 UTC Autumn, 1906: England, you will not survive your alliance with France. I would stop working with him.
01 Dec 14 UTC Autumn, 1906: My apologies regarding Venice, I mistakenly misread the request for support. I simply thought you were requesting that I not impede your attack. I will be more careful going forward.
01 Dec 14 UTC Autumn, 1906: Regarding forces in the med, I am very fearful of the 4 fleets you have positioned in the med that would overwhelm any Turkish defense. If you can back 2 of those fleets to west med and gol, I'd certainly DMZ the Ionian.
01 Dec 14 UTC Autumn, 1906: Hey Russia, any way I can help?
03 Dec 14 UTC Spring, 1907: Turkey -- that is agreeable. In hindsight, I seem to have overbuilt fleets. But I will maneuver them to a more defensive position. After that's done, I'll expect Ionian Sea to withdraw as well.
03 Dec 14 UTC Spring, 1907: England -- seems we need to focus down Germany now that Russia and Italy are on the ropes. Would you be okay with me moving a fleet into position to help? Happy to essentially put it under your control if you tell me where you want it.
03 Dec 14 UTC Spring, 1907: England -- seems we need to focus down Germany now that Russia and Italy are on the ropes. Would you be okay with me moving a fleet into position to help? Happy to essentially put it under your control if you tell me where you want it.
03 Dec 14 UTC Spring, 1907: I still don't think you should have anything to do with him.
03 Dec 14 UTC Spring, 1907: Rodger that france, dmz ion on your moves
03 Dec 14 UTC Spring, 1907: France, thanks, it may come to that but for the moment i think putting pressure on him from the land is what we need to do. Maintain the fleet in the Mid Atlantic if you would just in case?
03 Dec 14 UTC Spring, 1907: Can do!
04 Dec 14 UTC Spring, 1907: I guess given that you, France, moved exactly opposite of your promise our DMZ isn't gonna happen. Looks like you're preparing for a naval assault. England should be watching carefully your moves versus your promises
04 Dec 14 UTC Spring, 1907: Sorry Turkey; was the plan just to quietly solo with no real opposition?
04 Dec 14 UTC Spring, 1907: Anyone want to be my friend? Anyone? Bueller?
04 Dec 14 UTC Spring, 1907: I'm down. Non-aggression pact so we can take on Turkey? I'm not willing to join you in fighting England, but I will cease hostilities (aside from evicting Bur, naturally).
04 Dec 14 UTC Spring, 1907: Sounds good to me. I only moved to bur to get Belgium, so would you care to support me there from bur?
04 Dec 14 UTC Spring, 1907: Did you not just see me say I wouldn't support you in fighting England? Withdraw that unit this next turn if you want peace, but don't insult me.
04 Dec 14 UTC Spring, 1907: Woops, mea culpa. My brain chose to ignore the word 'not'. I will withdraw.
04 Dec 14 UTC Spring, 1907: Lol. Ty.
04 Dec 14 UTC Spring, 1907: Hey, can I get in on that pact? Mainly meaning, can you not kill me yet?
04 Dec 14 UTC Spring, 1907: Well, if you had asked that last year...
04 Dec 14 UTC Spring, 1907: How long was this offer on the table?
04 Dec 14 UTC Spring, 1907: Not long, so you didn't miss anything. I was just kidding.
04 Dec 14 UTC Spring, 1907: OK have it your way. Remember that attacking me so close to my home SC's mean that I can re-supply faster than you. If you still war let's go, there is still time to reconsider and take some low lying fruit north of you. One feel swoop into the irish sea and France gets big quick
04 Dec 14 UTC Spring, 1907: Wait, I'm allowed to not fight you? Was THAT ever an option?
07 Dec 14 UTC Autumn, 1907: England -- I'll support you back to Bel.
07 Dec 14 UTC Autumn, 1907: Germany -- you should really stop fighting England and help me against Turkey.
07 Dec 14 UTC Autumn, 1907: Is italy going to make us wait 23 hours to disband silesia? Please don't its bad karma and bad form, not to mention juvenile and rude
07 Dec 14 UTC Autumn, 1907: I'd love to stop fighting GB and help you against Turkey, but you're not helping the situation by supporting his fight against me while asking for my help at the same time lol
07 Dec 14 UTC Autumn, 1907: Fair point. From now on, I am officially neutral as to England and Germany. We need to stop Turkey. That's all there is to it.
07 Dec 14 UTC Autumn, 1907: My German and French neighbors, I propose we eliminate the Turks and see what the board looks like afterwards. Germany, I will vacate Holland, if you trade me Sweden. I will bring pressure from North Russia while you strike through the heart of Austria. France continues to pressure from the south. Hard to fight everyone. What say you all?
07 Dec 14 UTC Autumn, 1907: Sounds like a plan to me GB. I agree to the swap.
07 Dec 14 UTC Autumn, 1907: Agreed! A western triple; better late then never! Please move Eng Channel north as well so I don't have to leave a fleet there.
07 Dec 14 UTC Autumn, 1907: And you might as well convoy Holland to St. Pete. I'll reorganize myself to start convoying troops east as well.
07 Dec 14 UTC Spring, 1908: OH! I didn't do that on purpose. Apologies.
07 Dec 14 UTC Spring, 1908: No prob. Gg Italy!
07 Dec 14 UTC Spring, 1908: Thanks italy. Sorry if I sounded like a dick, no insult meant
09 Dec 14 UTC Autumn, 1908: The south is reasonably well locked up, so it's up to you two to hold the draw line. I'll bring the army in Bre into the mix ASAP.
09 Dec 14 UTC Autumn, 1908: I think we can do it. Tap Tyrolia for me if you could. Thanks.
09 Dec 14 UTC Will do.
09 Dec 14 UTC May I suggest that all peace-loving nations input draw orders, such that Turkey may honorably exit the game at any point.
10 Dec 14 UTC Well, if you think you all are of a same mind I'm willing to call off my hounds. The thing is, I think England or Germany aren't quite through with pecking at each other, or at you. Also, I can certainly offer a 2 way which would be a bit more fair given the current state of affairs. I hate to agree to a draw with powers that simply hung on, I would rather separate the better players and then decide who is in the draw. If you 3 can work together and not accept my help, then I won't have a choice. Right now I do have a choice and we'll just have to wait and see if anything develops.
10 Dec 14 UTC The three of us have draw orders in, so I'd say that yes, we are of the same mind...
10 Dec 14 UTC And really, none of us "hung on" -- we recognized your threat and mobilized to meet it.
10 Dec 14 UTC Good game all of you. Thanks for the competition
10 Dec 14 UTC Gg!
10 Dec 14 UTC Well played gents.
