Game drawn
11 Jul 15 UTC Autumn, 1911: The German navy pledges to rescue any survivors of the tragic four-way collision in the Tyrrhenian Sea, regardless of their nationality.
11 Jul 15 UTC Autumn, 1911: Though many English lives were lost this day, our catastrophe is eclipsed by the Italian losses. We are deploying more forces to the area to assist in rescue efforts
14 Jul 15 UTC Spring, 1912: Here is to one of the last 4 games still running!
14 Jul 15 UTC Spring, 1912: Italy wants in dat 4 way
14 Jul 15 UTC Spring, 1912: Italy has defended itself well so far :P Italy is also a replacement player with not as much at stake.
15 Jul 15 UTC Spring, 1912: back in Autumn 04' if old Italy had stayed, this could be an entirely different game. New Italy, New Shit
15 Jul 15 UTC Spring, 1912: See, I like continuity
15 Jul 15 UTC Spring, 1912: Hey, my shit ain't too bad :P
15 Jul 15 UTC Spring, 1912: I do hope they eliminate you. They should realize a 3 way is possible and easy to do
15 Jul 15 UTC Spring, 1912: How nice of you Austria. Im glad that you care.
15 Jul 15 UTC Spring, 1912: always :P
20 Jul 15 UTC Spring, 1913: Well guys, this could be my last turn, it has been a pleasure.
20 Jul 15 UTC Spring, 1913: bye bitch! nah but gg
20 Jul 15 UTC Spring, 1913: Ohh, you're still here... We never even had a chance to meet and yet you hate me :(
20 Jul 15 UTC Spring, 1913: the axis at one point had 18 SCs, basically us having control of the board, and then old italy left, and YOU came at me, leading to the destruction of both of us.

now we're both left out of the coming 3 way draw. you idiot
20 Jul 15 UTC Spring, 1913: I am the third italy... You were gone when I joined.
20 Jul 15 UTC Spring, 1913: Oops, sorry, forgot about Tunis. But I don't see how you do so well with only tunis in your name.
20 Jul 15 UTC Spring, 1913: oh! then i like you maybe. screw 2nd italy
20 Jul 15 UTC Spring, 1913: My first turn was in Autumn 1909, You just disbanded your fleet in Eastern, France was outside of Tunis, and your army in Albania was surrounded.
20 Jul 15 UTC Spring, 1913: Just read your chat logs with old Italy. All I can say is WOW!!!
20 Jul 15 UTC Spring, 1913: that was 2nd italy

the ballad of i hate you
22 Jul 15 UTC Autumn, 1913: And again we have a missed order. Can I suggest Tuscany just holds?
22 Jul 15 UTC Autumn, 1913: Sorry guys, thought I had hit ready.
22 Jul 15 UTC Autumn, 1913: Well good game, pleasure meeting you all.
22 Jul 15 UTC Autumn, 1913: gg Italy
22 Jul 15 UTC Autumn, 1913: Good game mate.
28 Jul 15 UTC Autumn, 1914: awww, shiiiiiit I messed up the Finland move.
30 Jul 15 UTC Autumn, 1914: So we can draw this... Or I'm going to need a pause over the weekend.
30 Jul 15 UTC Autumn, 1914: Pause vote is in
30 Jul 15 UTC Autumn, 1914: I'm fine either way so I'll defer to the majority position, but this is just the opening round of the tournament and unless we draw now this game could drag on
30 Jul 15 UTC Autumn, 1914: After next weekend I'm moving to another country so that will require another pause but hopefully only a few days
30 Jul 15 UTC Autumn, 1914: Another delay? This game has been ripe with them. Why don't we just draw and call it a good game and see eachother in the next round?
30 Jul 15 UTC Autumn, 1914: I mean, Germany could just ready his disband
30 Jul 15 UTC Autumn, 1914: Haha 5 points for enthusiasm France.
31 Jul 15 UTC Autumn, 1914: Don't get me wrong, I'm loving this game and don't mind it going on for quite some time yet. A true game of Diplomacy like this one is rare. I'm just a little fed up with all the delays ;)
31 Jul 15 UTC Spring, 1915: <--- Did not cause any delays :P
31 Jul 15 UTC Spring, 1915: Didn't you miss your orders not two turns ago?
31 Jul 15 UTC Spring, 1915: Moderator: (ghug): How long are you going to need to pause for, Turkey?
31 Jul 15 UTC Spring, 1915: That was only by half an hour.
31 Jul 15 UTC Spring, 1915: Until Monday evening would be great, if that's not too long.
31 Jul 15 UTC Spring, 1915: Oh, I'm not Turkey.
04 Aug 15 UTC Spring, 1915: I'm back.
04 Aug 15 UTC Spring, 1915: Probably only a couple of days while I fly over. So it'll be from next Monday until maybe two days later? As soon as I have internet again I'm happy to unpause.
04 Aug 15 UTC Spring, 1915: Moderator: (ghug): Game unpaused.
08 Aug 15 UTC Good game all. Nice job PW on not allowing me to destroy any of your units beyond the stalemate line. Pulling back was the one thing that could get me to draw.

I will not be joining you lovely folk in the next round. It was a condition I gave to ghug upon stepping into this tournament (twice now) since the countries I took over had such an advantageous position. I feel like I haven't done enough to earn a spot to advance. Best of luck to those of you who have moved on.
08 Aug 15 UTC Thanks for playing gold. Someday I'll play a game with you where you're not England.

As for my strategy of falling back, you should have seen France's disbelief each turn as I refused to put up a fight.

Jokke, I'm glad you got into the draw. You wrote some of the best, well thought-out, most persuasive press I've seen in this tournament. Sometimes I had to ignore you so you wouldn't convince me.

Draffin, I hear you asked atc if I was any good. I hope my play at the end didn't disappoint you too much.

08 Aug 15 UTC Pleasure playing with you all!
09 Aug 15 UTC Good game everyone! As a side note I'd like to apologise for a lack of press in the later years of the game, I'm half way through moving to Europe from Australia and life got very very busy.

Peter Wiggin - Haha you didn't disappoint at all, I was mildly convinced you were leading me to my doom but figured I should just trust you to the end, I only got as far as I did because of your help.

Goldfinger - You scare me. Sorry I couldn't betray Germany for you...just didn't seem like a great idea

Jokke - Super impressed how much you clawed back at the end there
