03 Jul 15 UTC Spring, 1901: yeah have a good game people
03 Jul 15 UTC Spring, 1901: hmm really wondering if france is actually gonna miss the first turn after typing aplenty :/
03 Jul 15 UTC Autumn, 1901: well, he would rather play Austria....
but I'd agree that a france that doesn't put in moves is over rated ;-)
03 Jul 15 UTC Autumn, 1901: Uhg, its been so long, I got out of my routine of checking turns :/
07 Jul 15 UTC Spring, 1902: France :[ don't miss another
07 Jul 15 UTC Autumn, 1902: *sob* I even thought I put in orders :'(
07 Jul 15 UTC Autumn, 1902: Killin' me, smalls.
11 Jul 15 UTC Autumn, 1903: I declare I/A Meta gaming
11 Jul 15 UTC Autumn, 1903: based on ....??
11 Jul 15 UTC Autumn, 1903: Oh, never mind, I see what was going on.Yeah, he got scrood.
11 Jul 15 UTC Autumn, 1903: Okay Italy. You aren't winning this game. I'll make sure of that
11 Jul 15 UTC Autumn, 1903: ready it up please england :p
11 Jul 15 UTC Autumn, 1903: these retreats phases lasting 24hrs is kinda pointless
11 Jul 15 UTC Autumn, 1903: true

all phases here should be 5 min...not sure why it was set to 24 hours
11 Jul 15 UTC Autumn, 1903: as for who is winning - clearly Russia and Germany are strongly allied, and will easily take all of my centres

in the meantime, everyone else in the south is bickering amongst themselves while G/R divvy up the north between them

so you are right Austria - Italy won't win this game
11 Jul 15 UTC Autumn, 1903: Still not too late to send me a message, England! I almost feel obliged to work with Germany if he or she's the only western power that'll send as much as a how-d'ye-do once a year.
12 Jul 15 UTC Autumn, 1903: England, there are three places you can retreat to...
14 Jul 15 UTC Spring, 1904: I'm growing a bit tired of this England not putting in moves thing.
18 Jul 15 UTC Autumn, 1905: 2 more SCs to go Italy and I'll be happy :)
19 Jul 15 UTC Autumn, 1905: LOL Russia!! Yeah fuck both you and Italy. :)
19 Jul 15 UTC Autumn, 1905: We could've made it work guys. All we needed to do was kill the Turkey...
20 Jul 15 UTC Autumn, 1905: Relax homie.
20 Jul 15 UTC Autumn, 1905: Damn, France bein' a real letdown.
20 Jul 15 UTC Spring, 1906: This is a new France. All past alliances, arrangements, deals, negotiations, etc. of any sort are now null and void. I look forward to speaking with you all.
22 Jul 15 UTC Autumn, 1906: ugh worst possible timing ever for an nmr. couldve sworn i entered the move before going to sleep. combining this with vacation is tricky for sure
26 Jul 15 UTC Autumn, 1907: GameMaster: mywebdip was banned: repeat multi . The time until the next phase has been extended by one phase length to give an opportunity to replace the player.
Remember to finalize your orders if you don't want to wait, so the game isn't held up unnecessarily!
26 Jul 15 UTC Autumn, 1907: lol so typical
27 Jul 15 UTC Autumn, 1907: Hello All! France has been replaced. I'm the new roy de soleil. Oh wait different era ;) Anyway, I'm completely open to talk to anyone and everyone! There are five hours left. Such a high reliability rating in this game and still so many NMRs, lets change that!
27 Jul 15 UTC Autumn, 1907: I've put in votes to draw and cancel

I don't know if we've had a single season where no one nmr'd
27 Jul 15 UTC Autumn, 1907: Additionally, I guess you're gonna keep us 'retreat hostage'? ;)
28 Jul 15 UTC Autumn, 1907: 24 hour phase
no sense whining about it once you agree to it
05 Aug 15 UTC Autumn, 1909: Austria and Turkey, Considering the board don't think you and Turkey will walk away with anything but a survive if you don't stop fighting. This is a public plea to bring you together!
Love,
The French
05 Aug 15 UTC Autumn, 1909: Perhaps you haven't noticed, but I'm the victim, not a co-equal perpetrator.
05 Aug 15 UTC Autumn, 1909: I have noticed and I am pleading with Austria as we speak.
12 Aug 15 UTC Autumn, 1912: well that seems like a stalemate line to me, wp
12 Aug 15 UTC Autumn, 1912: my draw vote is in, gg
12 Aug 15 UTC Autumn, 1912: Very well played Germany, I'm still hurting from your stab :) We got that stalemate just in the nick of time..

I have also put in my draw vote. GG.
12 Aug 15 UTC Autumn, 1912: Mine is in as well, nice leadership France.
14 Aug 15 UTC Spring, 1913: mine is in too
14 Aug 15 UTC Spring, 1913: it has been for years - i am not the holdout - ger ?
14 Aug 15 UTC Spring, 1913: yeah I cancelled mine after france came to me with the plan to eliminate you first for a bigger part of the pie :) not sure if im the only one at the moment though
14 Aug 15 UTC Spring, 1913: That was before the drawing situation. My draw vote is still in and will stay in. If we try to eliminate Italy our stalemate line will fall. Certainly now Turkey build an army instead of a boat.
14 Aug 15 UTC Spring, 1913: yeah that was a somewhat odd move, no need for that extra thing to hold that line
14 Aug 15 UTC Spring, 1913: So austria have you put draw in?
14 Aug 15 UTC Spring, 1913: And germnay did you reput draw in?
14 Aug 15 UTC Autumn, 1913: well im sure you can spot why my draw isnt in yet :)
14 Aug 15 UTC Autumn, 1913: theres still a sliver of hope for me
15 Aug 15 UTC well played everyone. finally a worthy replacement for france I guess. excellent set of last moves there
15 Aug 15 UTC Well played Germany! You made it a pretty exciting game.
16 Aug 15 UTC Well played folks. And a special thanks to Marcus.....you earned that draw for all of us.
