07 Dec 14 UTC Spring, 1997: I'm worse off :p
07 Dec 14 UTC Spring, 1997: I know.. A little difficult game for us it seems..
09 Dec 14 UTC Autumn, 1997: Omfg so sorry I NMRd again God damn
09 Dec 14 UTC Autumn, 1997: Seriously..
09 Dec 14 UTC Autumn, 1997: Well I suck too. not sure how that happened...
09 Dec 14 UTC Autumn, 1997: Of all the times for Poland to NMR...
09 Dec 14 UTC Autumn, 1997: Well, at least I didn't capitalize haha...
26 Dec 14 UTC Autumn, 2000: I wonder how many NMRs there will be on Xmas...
06 Jan 15 UTC Autumn, 2002: Save because fuck you, France.
06 Jan 15 UTC Autumn, 2002: That seems harsh.
06 Jan 15 UTC Autumn, 2002: Ouch... I think Egypt's harshness might have something to do with the fact I devised an elaborate plan to switch sides with him, built up his hopes, convinced him to ineffectually stab Turkey in the process... and then stuck with Team Awesome instead. Sorry Egypt!
11 Jan 15 UTC Autumn, 2003: Sorry - I dont know how I missed it god damn
13 Jan 15 UTC Autumn, 2003: Wow. I really didn't expect to get Gibraltar back.
13 Jan 15 UTC Autumn, 2003: We are the NMR Coalition ... Sigh
13 Jan 15 UTC Autumn, 2003: Britain didn't NMR. Gulf of Lyon moved to Marseilles.
13 Jan 15 UTC Autumn, 2003: Nope that was a retreat
13 Jan 15 UTC Spring, 2004: He bounced it with France. He definitely didn't NMR.
13 Jan 15 UTC Spring, 2004: I did bounce because I had entered that one in way in advance. I technically didn't NMR... I practically did though.
15 Jan 15 UTC Autumn, 2004: so what is going on now then. Turkey, Egypt, Eng v france, ger, pol??
15 Jan 15 UTC Autumn, 2004: Britain and France are clearly working together. Navarra supported Britain into Portugal, presumably so that I wouldn't bounce it.
16 Jan 15 UTC Autumn, 2004: This game is out of my understanding. Alliances which have prevailed are all natural alliances but the technique is so unique. I haven't seen such a game ever in my short diplomacy career. France Britain Germany Poland, all of them fighting turkey and Egypt and yet, the two way alliance manages to hold on against the team awesome. Well played all of you guys!!
16 Jan 15 UTC Autumn, 2004: No no no... I'd say Poland, Britain, Germany and France have taken on what looked like being a dominant Turkey-Egypt alliance because they had to. Hard to remember now but in 1998-9 they were making great progress. There might have been one or two hiccups along the way in rolling them back, but that's just because a four-way alliance is always going to be complicated. Now it's clear that Turkey and Egypt are most definitely not holding on...
16 Jan 15 UTC Autumn, 2004: Not holding on? I would've kept Monaco easy if you hadn't convinced me otherwise. And Gibraltar just as easy to defend.
16 Jan 15 UTC Autumn, 2004: I suppose we shall see about that, now won't we?
16 Jan 15 UTC Autumn, 2004: But yea, if you recall, Turkey and Egypt were definitely dominant powers earlier in this world's history. Egypt might still be retaining a large power base (equivalent to when it hit it's high point), but Turkey's power has definitely waned.

The real question I suppose is, where is the endgame, and who all is part of it?
16 Jan 15 UTC Autumn, 2004: The endgame depends entirely on Team Awesome doesn't it??
16 Jan 15 UTC Autumn, 2004: Note: Egypt-Turkey voted draw. Team Not-Actually-Awesome is stopped in the West, and they refuse to still back down.
16 Jan 15 UTC Autumn, 2004: Team Irrefutably-Awesome is certainly not stopped in the West.
16 Jan 15 UTC Autumn, 2004: But it sounds like we'll just have to prove that, won't we?
16 Jan 15 UTC Autumn, 2004: (I think this is what is technically known as 'fighting talk').... ;)
16 Jan 15 UTC Autumn, 2004: (Agree, that is known as 'fighting talk') And we are most certainly not stopped in the west. Retaking Gibraltar is only the first stepping stone in the path. We'll be making progress very soon now that forces are properly mobilized.
16 Jan 15 UTC Autumn, 2004: Retaking Gibraltar is a hilarious goal.
16 Jan 15 UTC Autumn, 2004: Team Undeniably Awesome refutes your claim on the hilarity of our goal.
16 Jan 15 UTC Autumn, 2004: Team Spain may have gone underground, but perhaps we will pop alive again in Gibraltar...
16 Jan 15 UTC Autumn, 2004: Team Spain will defend Egyptian Gibraltar.
16 Jan 15 UTC Autumn, 2004: Did I spark off a debate.. I am (not)sorry if I did lol ;-P
17 Jan 15 UTC Autumn, 2004: Bwahahaha.
17 Jan 15 UTC Autumn, 2004: Wow - that was a bad turn for you Turkey.
17 Jan 15 UTC Autumn, 2004: Umm Turkey - just so you know - you lost Rostov because you tried to hold a unit you had ordered to move, thus breaking that hold.
17 Jan 15 UTC Autumn, 2004: Ha, that's how Britain lost Seville.
17 Jan 15 UTC Autumn, 2004: Except it was French support.
24 Feb 15 UTC Autumn, 2011: Well played Egypt - good game and thanks for playing
24 Feb 15 UTC Autumn, 2011: Thanks for having me. Just found out this is the only Seasonal Variant game still going, and it's the only one, I expect, that won't end in a draw. This is a really good game.
24 Feb 15 UTC Autumn, 2011: Egypt = definitely a good player.
27 Feb 15 UTC Spring, 2012: Just worth noting: Only surviving nations are the original members of Team Awesome... not that I really consider myself surviving at this point, but you know...
27 Feb 15 UTC Spring, 2012: Haha this is true (on both counts :D)
01 Mar 15 UTC Well played Wusti! Sorry Britain and Germany, but I hate draws... At least Team Awesome made it to the end though.
01 Mar 15 UTC I have to say this is a solo I feel totally ambivalent about. It's always nice to get one but, if it's any consolation Germany, I feel terrible about the way it was achieved. After my initial stab of you, which you forgave I was determined to take you to the end - it was only your distrust of me that enabled the solo in the end - despite my warnings to you regarding France.

Once so close though - the temptation to go for the win was too much.

Thank you everyone for a great game.
02 Mar 15 UTC Cheers guys, and good game. I was just in the worst position to begin with, not a huge fan of being in the middle there lol. Great game!
02 Mar 15 UTC I agree, very good game, even if I was basically just a remnant at the end there.
