09 Apr 15 UTC Spring, 1901: I am a little concerned that the sun is now rising in the west but maybe that will mean good things for the italians
10 Apr 15 UTC Spring, 1901: A very astute point made by our friend Cavour here...
11 Apr 15 UTC Spring, 1901: Hello! Really hope the remaining players get their orders in. If not, I will be voting cancel and will not submit moves after this round.
11 Apr 15 UTC Autumn, 1901: I agree cancel if Turkey Germany do not show
13 Apr 15 UTC Autumn, 1901: Turkey and Germany are officially in CD...
13 Apr 15 UTC Autumn, 1901: Hi, new turkey here! I think not much has really happened, if a germany shows up let's keep playing.
14 Apr 15 UTC Autumn, 1901: Well we have a new germany and a new turkey...will austria come back.
17 Apr 15 UTC Spring, 1902: And same question about England.
17 Apr 15 UTC Autumn, 1902: 3 missed orders time to cancel
17 Apr 15 UTC Autumn, 1902: Why not just draw it?
20 Apr 15 UTC Autumn, 1902: Looks like we've got enough people, just keep playing. It's no big deal. Plus it's only 10 points anyway so who cares if it's not a perfect game.
20 Apr 15 UTC Autumn, 1902: I don't mind either way everyone gets extra points because of all the leaving.
06 May 15 UTC Spring, 1906: Seems that France is MIA
06 May 15 UTC Spring, 1906: That's a shame. He has quite the force.
07 May 15 UTC Spring, 1906: Indeed. Need to terminate him before a random new player takes over.
01 Jun 15 UTC Autumn, 1910: Any interest in calling it a draw? I think we're pretty evenly matched. Could see how it shakes out over another year if you guys really want.
02 Jun 15 UTC Autumn, 1910: Not really. Right now the game seems pretty much to our advantage and you are not anything near a stable draw-line.
02 Jun 15 UTC Autumn, 1910: And if you would be so kind and put in orders when you can instead of at the last second so we can speed up this game.
03 Jun 15 UTC Autumn, 1910: Well I'm kind of busy in real life and don't need the attitude, so I'll put in moves whenever I can. If you want a fast game, join one with a faster turn around time. Simple as that.

Also, to what end are we playing towards? You seem upset that I went against you in taking Vienna and "intent" (I believe the word you were looking for was "intend") on keeping an alliance with Italy after you previously worked so hard to convince me to break mine with him (I did so because it was strategically convenient). Why not just take the three SCs you need to win, which are readily available to you, rather than dragging this out unnecessarily. The win is yours to take and you're being strategically ridiculous for not taking it.

I think the overall number of SCs hasn't changed hands in awhile and so I suggested a draw so that we can just move on. You're the only one holding out. If it's that important to you to take them from me, I'll just give you the SCs. I don't particularly care about the points.
03 Jun 15 UTC Spring, 1911: First of all, it was a request, not a demand, and it was put forward in a kindly manor.
It is yourself who indicates that you think this game is dragging on without purpose, and that was why I asked that you to rdy moves.

I am not "upset", I am just playing the game with a trustworthy ally, and I actually think that is quite nice. You should not have joined a PPSC game if you didn't want players to play like true allies. And if you wanted players only to think of strategy then you should have joined af gunboat game.

And "intent", I don't know when I wrote that, but hell, if you feel big because you can correct an old spell error of my, then be my guest.

And the overall SC number might not have changed - but, that is neither here nor there. The matter is that you are no way near a stable draw line. We are. And we are also able to push further. That justifies that the game goes on.

If you don't particularly care about point - well, if you feel like you wanna throw in the towel and let us have them freely, be my guest. But you're argument about me being the only one holding on is invalid. You were also the only one holding on when you thought you could win or when you thought you could get more points.

Your own actions is what kept this game going. Now, you can deal with it in your own way - but don't try to immoralize me for playing on.
07 Jun 15 UTC Autumn, 1911: Hi. New Turkey here. Just thought I'd make some quick points. :)
Actually, I don't understand why it's not already over. Germany could have taken Por, Spa, Bre already and that's the game.
07 Jun 15 UTC Autumn, 1911: Big words from someone who just comes in to steal some points in a PPSC.
08 Jun 15 UTC Autumn, 1911: Steal? WTF. The other player has left. I'm not "stealing" anything.
08 Jun 15 UTC Spring, 1912: Your intend is to end this game fast and get some free points. That's what I call stealing.
08 Jun 15 UTC Spring, 1912: Stealing is, by definition, taking something from someone else.
What do you have against ending the game fast? Why would you drag a game out that you could have already won?
08 Jun 15 UTC Spring, 1912: In my opinion the points that you would gain from me ending this game is stealing since those points no way near belongs to you. That way you are trying to steal points from someone else.

Why would I not. This game is not just about winning fast. And it is not about taking the easy way out. If that was all it was about then there would be plenty of games where it was both easier and faster to win.
08 Jun 15 UTC Spring, 1912: The other player is gone. The country was in CD. The web site offers the country to anyone who wants it. It's not stealing.
08 Jun 15 UTC Spring, 1912: Theres a diffenrence between entering a game just to get a good fight and what you have done.

You just found some game you think you can grab some easy points from.

But, I will not argue anymore with you, as it clearly won't move you to admit it.
08 Jun 15 UTC Spring, 1912: The system gives a discount on entering an existing game. Of course I did it to make some points. If you don't like how the site works, I suggest you play on another one.
08 Jun 15 UTC Spring, 1912: And, I can tell you exactly the same.
12 Jun 15 UTC Spring, 1913: I finally found out why this game starts in 1901.
17 Jun 15 UTC Spring, 1916: Now you want to vote Draw like the rest of us, right? :)
17 Jun 15 UTC Finally over. Hope you got your thrills out of taking some points from me in such a drawn-out and tedious way, Germany.
By joining the game, I added to the pot, so if anyone deserves admonition for stealing, it is you.
17 Jun 15 UTC It was your own choice to join the game.

Not mine.

You attempted to steal some easy quick points. You failed. Now go sob somewhere else.

Thanks for a good game Italy.
