24 Jul 15 UTC Spring, 1901: Have fun all!

24 Jul 15 UTC Spring, 1901: Good luck.
31 Jul 15 UTC Autumn, 1903: As the new Italian prime minister, I would like to officially announce that for us in Italy, the war has ended. We Italians are lovers, not fighters, and would like to spend the remainder of the war here in our homeland, licking our wounds and our lasagna. We only worry about the intentions of that pretender in Vienna. Anyone who should rid us of him will have our unending gratitude, and bottomless lasagna.
31 Jul 15 UTC Autumn, 1903: Hahaha. I'll come save you for a lifelong supply of carbonara romana.
31 Jul 15 UTC Autumn, 1903: This is unfair, there is only spring and autumn in this game. If there was winter I can tell there would not be any German in St Petersbourg. History proved it
31 Jul 15 UTC Autumn, 1903: Carbonara romana sounds like a great deal to me!

And Russia has a point. The Russian winter didn't factor into the Great War, but only because nobody made it that deep into Russia. It was a major factor in every invasion of Russia for several centuries.

Though if we want to get historical, we're still over ten years away from the war even beginning.
01 Aug 15 UTC Autumn, 1904: Austria's going on an Amalfi coast holiday. Send us a postcard Ṣalāḥ ad-Dīn Yūsuf ibn Ayyūb.
01 Aug 15 UTC Autumn, 1904: Sure thing, Caesar Marcus Aurelius Antoninus Augustus! You know, ever since I left Austria, it's been all fun and sun. I should have done this long ago!
01 Aug 15 UTC Autumn, 1904: Sure thing, Caesar Marcus Aurelius Antoninus Augustus! You know, ever since I left Austria, it's been all fun and sun. I should have done this long ago!
01 Aug 15 UTC Autumn, 1904: Ouch, I did the refresh-idiot? Oh well. I guess I haven't have much of a reputation to worry about since 1902 or so anyway.
05 Aug 15 UTC Autumn, 1905: Portugal Pirates are here and ready to scheme
05 Aug 15 UTC Autumn, 1905: England if you could just let me into Paris...
05 Aug 15 UTC Autumn, 1905: Currently I'm heading for this island called Elba, I hear it's a great place for French ex-emperors to hang out.
05 Aug 15 UTC Autumn, 1905: Bookedano tu fais honte à la France.!
05 Aug 15 UTC Autumn, 1905: Выпозор России Lannes!
05 Aug 15 UTC Autumn, 1905: Sauf que je suis vraiment Français et toi Google-traductionnais, pas Russe ;)
05 Aug 15 UTC Autumn, 1905: сосать его
05 Aug 15 UTC Autumn, 1905: bouf ma keu

Et tu pourra pas la traduire celle là
05 Aug 15 UTC Autumn, 1905: Lannes tu fais honte à la France!

How could you let your native land come to such a state? I am only just learning of this travesty, but I fear it is too late for the both of us. Keep your beef to yourself.
05 Aug 15 UTC Autumn, 1905: Nobody has really been eliminated yet, but this is really a war of three nations here.
05 Aug 15 UTC Autumn, 1905: it's 2v1 if Germany and England are smart! :)
05 Aug 15 UTC Autumn, 1905: Haha alright Bookemdano I apologize that was childish. Sorry about that I was just kidding, I hope you didn t took this too badly

In addition I agree with you, GB and Germany have think about the long term there. Hope they will or they are doomed against big Turkey
18 Aug 15 UTC Autumn, 1911: Well so much for my solo.
18 Aug 15 UTC Autumn, 1911: Lol. Can you please just chime in from time to time to delight us with your occasional analysis :)
21 Aug 15 UTC Spring, 1913: I'm sorry for my NMR turkey. I ruined this game's final phase for you.
22 Aug 15 UTC Congrats germany I can't stop you anymore. Well played!
22 Aug 15 UTC Just out of curiosity, would you have ordered Lon-Yor, or Lon H (or other)?
22 Aug 15 UTC I would have ordered Lon - Yor and Par Bur s Pic etc. Then I would have attacked either Bel or Edi, and I think it would have been a coin flip?
22 Aug 15 UTC congrats with the win wise man! You really convinced me of your intent to two way. say about my late game nMr.
22 Aug 15 UTC And your first solo. nice!
22 Aug 15 UTC Thank you <bow>
