27 Apr 15 UTC Autumn, 1997: Im sure you guys are aware of the concerns which result from the three eastern nations openly allying...
27 Apr 15 UTC Autumn, 1997: I would simply suggest that the two nations with two builds attack the one which is either attacking or moving to attack you.
27 Apr 15 UTC Autumn, 1997: Russia, we have worked together well, I am not moving to attack you.
27 Apr 15 UTC Autumn, 1997: bye bye!
27 Apr 15 UTC Autumn, 1997: Nice try Ukraine
27 Apr 15 UTC Autumn, 1997: spain would you like Ireland and then you could head east in the medditerranean
28 Apr 15 UTC Spring, 1998: I find that acceptable. We could discuss france as well...
28 Apr 15 UTC Spring, 1998: I would like the capitol but the Riviera can be all yours
28 Apr 15 UTC Spring, 1998: Ukraine, should I be worried about those units you've brought to the front?
28 Apr 15 UTC Spring, 1998: And Germany, though Ukraine and I are allied, I don't condone Ukraine's attack on you.
29 Apr 15 UTC Autumn, 1998: Sorry about that Germany. I didn't know I had to take the long way around to the Mediterreanen. Giving France something to think about. Why are you heading through the English Channel?
29 Apr 15 UTC Autumn, 1998: Turkey: I want to just make it clear that I am NOT your enemy.
29 Apr 15 UTC Autumn, 1998: So to show me that we aren't enemies, you built a fleet in Rostov and then moved to Eastern black?
29 Apr 15 UTC Autumn, 1998: Meanwhile your ally asked for peace and then proceeded to attempt to get in position to take Istanbul.

I would love to believe that you're not my enemy, but you need to give me a reason.
29 Apr 15 UTC Autumn, 1998: Well, for one: I moved those units because my ally did not respond to my calls for peace. Whether he was planning to attack me or not, I don't know. But I wasn't going to allow a stab to derail me. I moved to the Eastern Black Sea because I knew that, in the event of a stab, I'd need control of his southern flank where he has vulnerable SC's. It seems that this was unfounded and I'm not going to attack. You'll notice that I didn't move against any of his territory or against any of your territory. It was only a precaution.
29 Apr 15 UTC Autumn, 1998: Ok, so what's your long-term plan then? You're friends with Germany, you're friends with Ukraine, and you're friends with me. Where are you planning to go?
29 Apr 15 UTC Autumn, 1998: Nowhere for the moment. I have so many games going on, I'm more than content to sit until one of you decides to stab me, or an opportunity arises where someone else comes into contact with me. However, know that if you stab me my entire focus will be on this game.
29 Apr 15 UTC Autumn, 1998: Russia, careful being too neutral it makes all uneasy. I am sure however that turkey and I are willing to work with you.

Spain, Eng Channel move was insurance in case you went back on our agreement and took Liverpool. Since you seem to be greatly trustworthy our agreement stands. thank you
29 Apr 15 UTC Autumn, 1998: Russia, sorry for the silence I have been busy. I think my moves sure that I did not intend to stab you
29 Apr 15 UTC Autumn, 1998: I'm willing to work with you Russia provided you propose a plan that 1) pushes back ukraine's advances on me, and 2) demilitarized our border.
30 Apr 15 UTC Autumn, 1998: Germany,

Now starting to appear as if English Channel move wasn't just "for insurance". Everything was working out so well too.
30 Apr 15 UTC Autumn, 1998: It also appears that Paris is in your sights and that you aren't moving east
30 Apr 15 UTC Autumn, 1998: I don't want to get into Paris. I will support you into there if you would like. Of course I am moving east. I can't go any farther west than I already am.
02 May 15 UTC Spring, 1999: Ukraine: I would greatly appreciate any help you could give me against Turkey.
02 May 15 UTC Spring, 1999: I would appreciate your help with that too Russia :)
02 May 15 UTC Spring, 1999: I would apologize to you Russia, had You not antagonized me into attacking you as a preventative measure. I look forward to a good fight.
02 May 15 UTC Spring, 1999: Russia I hope that feet wil be claiming Iceland yes
02 May 15 UTC Spring, 1999: That fleet is there to provide support where needed. What could I do against you with one fleet.
02 May 15 UTC Spring, 1999: Turkey, please elaborate as to what I did to antagonize you. Was it the two units I had against your entire empire? Or the units that I had offered to you to help, which I am glad you did not accept for Ukraine did not attack me.
02 May 15 UTC Spring, 1999: It was indeed your position to take Ankara. I tend not to trust people who claim they will remain peaceful with everyone they border, especially considering Ukraine had just asked me for peace and then immediately moved into attack position.
Further, I asked you to propose a plan to both puck Ukraine back and back off my border. You never responded.
And I've gone back to look at the conversation, you never offered to help me.
02 May 15 UTC Spring, 1999: Correction: Push Ukraine back*
02 May 15 UTC Spring, 1999: I'm willing to give you Georgia back in return for support against Ukraine, but I don't honestly expect you will take that offer.
02 May 15 UTC Spring, 1999: That Russian fleet in Clyde would make things interesting...
02 May 15 UTC Spring, 1999: Turkey: While I could understand that being a threat, I would also point out my armies surrounding Ukraine in the North. I would have been stupid to attack both of you. I did not respond because I am allied with Ukraine and I was thinking of another possible agreement. I would also point out that unit you moved into Armenia, which had no other possible use than to attack Georgia. I don't want to verbally fight over this, but know that any deals are off the table for the rest of the game. Good luck to you, and may the best country win.
02 May 15 UTC Spring, 1999: To any that were worried about my peacefulness, do not worry any longer. It is fairly obvious that Turkey and I are at war.
02 May 15 UTC Spring, 1999: Not that it needs to be pointed out Russia, but be weary on Kazakhstan. If you have any suggestion of how we can both free some armies up from the border I am happy to listen
02 May 15 UTC Spring, 1999: Ukraine, I can free up my borders, for the most part, easily; I'm obviously moving units down to attack Turkey. Thank you, I had noticed Kazakhstan. Thanks and feel free to give me any warnings on things I might have missed.
02 May 15 UTC Spring, 1999: Germany, I hope you continue to see the benefits of an alliance as I deal with southern interests.
03 May 15 UTC Autumn, 1999: I do Russia
03 May 15 UTC Autumn, 1999: Well this has been an unfortunate turn of events. For myself, there seems to be no outcome but defeat. I accept that, because I poked Russia with a stick one too many times. But for the rest of you, the same is true. Germany has this game on lock unless someone seriously contests him. And Spain can't do that alone. This is winner-take-all, after all. Germany will grow much faster than either of you, Russia/Ukraine, and your "alliance" will mean nothing. If one of you doesn't act before Germany starts to take the Spanish mainland, you will both lose.

If you want to squabble over Georgia and the Balkans because you're too afraid to challenge the player with the best record in this game, so be it. I can't stop you. But it's certainly not a winning strategy.
03 May 15 UTC Autumn, 1999: Although I appreciate your attempt to scare everyone turkey it should be noted that I am not una run away position yet and that Ukraine and Russia are my allies and I have no desire to stab them especially when there is a NMR Italy
03 May 15 UTC Autumn, 1999: "...no desire to stab them yet."

FTFY
03 May 15 UTC Autumn, 1999: Germany, I have that fleet in the Norwegian sea at your disposal.
03 May 15 UTC Autumn, 1999: send it to the north atlantic in prep for taking ireland
07 May 15 UTC Autumn, 2000: Remember that one time when I said Germany was going to take this game, and he accused me of fear mongering?
07 May 15 UTC Autumn, 2000: If Russia hadn't left things would look a lot different
08 May 15 UTC Autumn, 2000: You're right... You'd have 21 SCs instead of 22. Totally different.

Ukraine, do you still want to squabble over the Balkans?
08 May 15 UTC Autumn, 2000: Not particuarly, i'd rather not have a army sat in Albania though
10 May 15 UTC Autumn, 2001: I'd rather not have a stranded army either. I'll have that unit hold so you can destroy it.
15 May 15 UTC nice game guys, even if it was a little unconventional
