15 Jul 15 UTC Spring, 1905: Germany's biggest mistake WAS attacking everyone. Regardless of whether or not he would have done this though, he would inevitably be taken down by the juggernaut unless he had helped me and Austria against them.
15 Jul 15 UTC Spring, 1905: Why does everyone always assume that id take him down just cuz I am able to? I believe Loyalty and helpfulness should be repaid in kind. If he hadn't turned on me I'd have been able to show that.
15 Jul 15 UTC Spring, 1905: Because they assume when you are given the choice between win by crushing your next best target and sticking to the alliance with them even though it is pretty tough to get around them at your other targets, they think you will choose the "smart" option.
15 Jul 15 UTC Spring, 1905: One of the beauties of this game is that humans play it, and we sure as heck don't always play it efficiently. Might as well be playing machines in that case.
15 Jul 15 UTC Spring, 1905: Truth!
15 Jul 15 UTC Spring, 1905: I share your appreciation for repaying loyalty with loyalty. But surely you must understand that it is in my interest to agitate suspicions between allies :) In any case, Germany was indeed the next logical choice for Russia after Austria was finished, so it is natural to raise that warning. Russia would have had to betray either Germany, Britain, or Turkey to continue expanding at all.
Of course, Germany pretty much caused his own problems. To start with, he shouldn't have invaded Austria, because it deprived him of a stable, friendly southern neighbor. And once he did, he shouldn't have then launched a new, unsuccessful attempt against Russia's Sweden. Not to mention attempting an attack on Belgium as well.
15 Jul 15 UTC Spring, 1905: Turkey, yes, I would be interested in a draw. However, expect me to do my best to save Italy.
15 Jul 15 UTC Spring, 1905: Expectation noted. It is a joy to play with such a professional.
15 Jul 15 UTC Spring, 1905: Russia, we request Vie and Budapest support Serbia to Trieste.
15 Jul 15 UTC Autumn, 1905: Turkey: Of course my friend.
16 Jul 15 UTC Autumn, 1905: the spectators of Austria watch from their tiny corner of Albania...
17 Jul 15 UTC Autumn, 1905: France is quite ripe and juicy looking
19 Jul 15 UTC Autumn, 1905: France's bounty overflows, and they are smart enough to get their fleet across the stalemate line in the med!
21 Jul 15 UTC Spring, 1906: Italy, it's a tight spot for you. Do you have a preferred strategy for this turn?
21 Jul 15 UTC Spring, 1906: I would recommend Italy convoy Tunis to Rom supported by Ven.
21 Jul 15 UTC Spring, 1906: I don't know what I should do... any ideas France?
21 Jul 15 UTC Spring, 1906: Venice move to Rome. Ionian Sea hold. Tunis move to North Africa. When Ionian is forced to retreat, retreat to Tunis. I hate putting this out there so explicitly, but I am confident it will work. Confirm when you've updated your orders, it is important.
21 Jul 15 UTC Spring, 1906: Got it.
21 Jul 15 UTC Spring, 1906: Turkey: I am moving to tyrolia.
21 Jul 15 UTC Spring, 1906: Germany, if you communicate with me, I am willing to coordinate moves with you.
22 Jul 15 UTC Autumn, 1906: Italy: Please use Tunis to support hold my fleet in the Tyrrhenian Sea. That will buy us enough time to set up a stalemate line in the south, where I can protect you indefinitely in Tunis.

Turkey: Soon you shall have nowhere to go but North :)

Russia: French lands will not be taken so easily!
22 Jul 15 UTC Autumn, 1906: Done.
23 Jul 15 UTC Autumn, 1906: Friends, family, strangers, lovers, enemies, estranged siblings, I just want you all to please keep in mind one critical fact. Admiral Hackbar only needs six measly centers to win this game with a SOLO victory. I assure you, anything he says, anything he suggests, any thing he does.......
is a trap.

25 Jul 15 UTC Autumn, 1906: Yikes Russia, that was scary! It was like watching a Lion rip apart a Wildebeast.
26 Jul 15 UTC Spring, 1907: Grrr baby, very very grrr! (Austin powers quote)
26 Jul 15 UTC Spring, 1907: Turkey: Should tyrolia support Venice to Piedmont?
27 Jul 15 UTC Spring, 1907: Italy, we're in excellent shape. I'm convoying Spain to North Africa to support hold Tunis.
27 Jul 15 UTC Spring, 1907: Sure.
30 Jul 15 UTC Autumn, 1907: 3 way draw?
30 Jul 15 UTC Spring, 1908: It is not a three way with little Italy surviving down there.
30 Jul 15 UTC Spring, 1908: Russia, support Tus into Pie please.
30 Jul 15 UTC Spring, 1908: As a valuable partner and ally, the legitimate government of occupied Italy will have a seat at the table in any peace-talks.
30 Jul 15 UTC Spring, 1908: Turkey, perhaps a quick trip into Budapest and Rumania?
30 Jul 15 UTC Spring, 1908: :)
30 Jul 15 UTC Autumn, 1908: Thank you France.
03 Aug 15 UTC Autumn, 1909: I will be out of town and won't have internet access for a week. Can we pause?
03 Aug 15 UTC Autumn, 1909: I'm okay with pausing, provided we all agree on a guaranteed restart date. That way, if the agreed date passes we can get a moderator to unpause it for us.
03 Aug 15 UTC Autumn, 1909: What is the agreed day you will be back, Italy?
03 Aug 15 UTC Autumn, 1909: I can't believe this game is still going on...
03 Aug 15 UTC Autumn, 1909: The 10th!
04 Aug 15 UTC Autumn, 1909: Funny thing is, we actually don't need to pause for Italy, they don't need to enter orders anyway.
04 Aug 15 UTC Autumn, 1909: Yeah, but he could go into Civil Disorder, right?
04 Aug 15 UTC Autumn, 1909: Oh yeah, good point.
04 Aug 15 UTC Autumn, 1909: We could just draw now?
04 Aug 15 UTC Autumn, 1909: That's fine with me.
04 Aug 15 UTC Autumn, 1909: Russia? Not to be cocky, but there's really no chance you'll break through my lines.
06 Aug 15 UTC Autumn, 1909: I know.
07 Aug 15 UTC Well played, all
07 Aug 15 UTC Yes, good game.
