14 Sep 15 UTC Autumn, 2013: Agreed!
15 Sep 15 UTC Autumn, 2013: Now Andalusia is open. No trust.
15 Sep 15 UTC Autumn, 2013: Sorry SpAin I need that one but I will stay put now
15 Sep 15 UTC Autumn, 2013: Spain, why retreat to Barca? Now you cannot build there.
16 Sep 15 UTC Spring, 2014: Haha its a stale mate
16 Sep 15 UTC Spring, 2014: It is.
At least it should be so we can deny Egypt the "W".
16 Sep 15 UTC Spring, 2014: And more armies isn't going to lock this game down. Fleets in the Med is the only chance to save the game.
16 Sep 15 UTC Spring, 2014: Spain, move to Gibraltar with your MAO fleet. I will take MAO and support you in SoG. That's critical to the stalemate.
16 Sep 15 UTC Spring, 2014: I mean, Spain:
SAO -> Gib
16 Sep 15 UTC Spring, 2014: Finally having a responsive Spain should change things.
18 Sep 15 UTC Spring, 2014: So much for a responsive Spain
18 Sep 15 UTC Spring, 2014: You may as well finish off Italy. The more chance of him missing a turn, the less chance of you forcing me into a draw.
18 Sep 15 UTC Spring, 2014: No way. With Spain being completely unreliable, Italy becomes the key to a draw.

Poland, if you have any ideas how to break the stalemate vs Egypt in the east, let me know!
18 Sep 15 UTC Spring, 2014: Were you to finish Spain and Italy, you'd find me much closer to agreeing to a draw.
18 Sep 15 UTC Spring, 2014: If Spain were actually playing, you and I wouldn't be racing to eat up his SCs and the game would be forced into stalemate right now.
18 Sep 15 UTC Spring, 2014: Well, I guess we'll see what happens.
21 Sep 15 UTC Spring, 2015: Germany support me into Bordeaux plz
21 Sep 15 UTC Spring, 2015: Italy, I will support you into Paris, same as last turn.
21 Sep 15 UTC Spring, 2015: Ok thank you
21 Sep 15 UTC Spring, 2015: I just joined as Spain, it seems you are not too big friends of my predesessor. What do we do ??
21 Sep 15 UTC Spring, 2015: How can I help ?
21 Sep 15 UTC Spring, 2015: New new new Spain, are you here for the long haul? I hope so. Since I joined this game, we lost two Spains.
21 Sep 15 UTC Spring, 2015: We can easily work out a 5-way draw. I'm the only one other than Egypt who would lose out wrt webDip points. That doesn't matter to me. AFAIC, a draw is better than a loss at any cost.
21 Sep 15 UTC Spring, 2015: yes I am. I have played much more civil disorders than new games, for practice reasons and I do not mind the pain (and sometimes they turn out really nicely in fact).
21 Sep 15 UTC Spring, 2015: It seems Egypt needs to want, but winning and drawing does not really make a lot of difference to him it seems ....
21 Sep 15 UTC Spring, 2015: Egypt will only draw with a forced stalemate. He is only 5 SCs from victory and those could easily come from Spain or Italy.
22 Sep 15 UTC Spring, 2015: Spain has 4 also open...
23 Sep 15 UTC Autumn, 2015: Spain, I want to help you but need some guidance.. Lots of things happening this season.
23 Sep 15 UTC Autumn, 2015: yes, tell me ?
23 Sep 15 UTC Autumn, 2015: It seems to me Barcelona, Seville and Gibraltar are all vulnerable. Any move recommendations for me so we can coordinate?
23 Sep 15 UTC Autumn, 2015: Spain are you playing or not!!!
24 Sep 15 UTC Autumn, 2015: Spain, WTF? You needed to keep Barcelona. You didn't even try.
24 Sep 15 UTC Autumn, 2015: Look at my last two to three turns I haven't entered any Spanish SCs except Switzerland. You are giving your territories away to the true aggressor--Egypt.
24 Sep 15 UTC Autumn, 2015: I do not understand your 'WTF".I just joined, this game is a lost game, and YOU GUYS have lost it. So please understand that I could not make it into a major priority.
24 Sep 15 UTC Autumn, 2015: If you thought it was a lost game , why'd you bother joining?
24 Sep 15 UTC Autumn, 2015: end of discussion if you do not understand it is to help you play normally idiot
24 Sep 15 UTC Autumn, 2015: stop screaming at me
24 Sep 15 UTC Autumn, 2015: Well Spain, you could always help me out instead.
25 Sep 15 UTC Autumn, 2015: If that's help, we don't need your help.
26 Sep 15 UTC Spring, 2016: What about everyone supportng Madrid to Barcelona?
26 Sep 15 UTC Spring, 2016: and I can support SAO to WestMed to slow down two of his fleets
26 Sep 15 UTC Spring, 2016: sorry SAO to SOG
26 Sep 15 UTC Spring, 2016: Good luck with this guy, team Germany.
28 Sep 15 UTC ok so in fact you all do not give a shit, no cooperation at all. Well, what was all that hassle about then ? After all YOU GUYS are respnsable that Egypt grew so big. I was not here.
28 Sep 15 UTC i think me and egypt are the only originals left
28 Sep 15 UTC Wow, this game has been going on several months.
28 Sep 15 UTC And we used to work together, Poland. I am still OK with working together again. This game will end much faster and be more fun if you hit Germany.
29 Sep 15 UTC GG
29 Sep 15 UTC You don't really mean that.
