31 May 16 UTC Spring, 1901: umm... I definitely thought this was a gunboat when I joined...
31 May 16 UTC Spring, 1901: Ha. Me too.
01 Jun 16 UTC Spring, 1901: Greetings all! Hope for a good game!
02 Jun 16 UTC Autumn, 1901: Why is everybody in such a hurry?
02 Jun 16 UTC Autumn, 1901: I'm in no hurry. I'm surprised really to see Austria was ready so fast. So many decisions...
02 Jun 16 UTC Autumn, 1901: 2 more fleets for me!
02 Jun 16 UTC Autumn, 1901: Actually at this point if we did start the spring moves right now I'd be asleep during most of the diplomacy time. So I'm going back to 'not ready' just to get the extra hours.
03 Jun 16 UTC Autumn, 1902: My communication might lack for a while tonight (its a busy Friday night for me). I know there is much to figure out. Try to ping me anyway.
03 Jun 16 UTC Autumn, 1902: I saved some arbitrary prelims. Just so I don't accidentally hold all my units in place.
07 Jun 16 UTC Autumn, 1903: With French forces in Munich and London... It seems only reasonable that France should also occupy Moscow, Constantinople, Budapest, and Rome.
09 Jun 16 UTC Autumn, 1904: Nice job FG
10 Jun 16 UTC Autumn, 1904: Another tough build decision...
10 Jun 16 UTC Autumn, 1904: I'm too nice for this game.
10 Jun 16 UTC Autumn, 1904: One time I had three builds as Russia and assigned two of them to Moscow. Double checking now to make sure my builds are in different centers...
10 Jun 16 UTC Autumn, 1904: Moscow deserves the extra protection. Can't just leave it open.
10 Jun 16 UTC Autumn, 1904: Tell me about it.
11 Jun 16 UTC Autumn, 1904: Good advice. I'll be sure to protect Moscow extra well.
12 Jun 16 UTC Spring, 1905: That was supposed to go to Tuscany
17 Jun 16 UTC Autumn, 1907: Yeah big surprise
18 Jun 16 UTC Well played Germany. I saw this coming from you, very surprised France didn't see it coming
18 Jun 16 UTC I'm pretty sure we all saw it coming but France lol. Well played Germany.
18 Jun 16 UTC Good game all.

And does this mean you guys were bluffing every time you told me France was close to soloing?
18 Jun 16 UTC Really more disappointed that we aren't going to do the massive convoy I set us up for. Army in Moscow should have gone to St. Petersburg. This turn we were supposed to convoy it to Syria. Everyone send shame to Germany for killing thatidea. :-)
19 Jun 16 UTC So my question is, why did everybody decide they wanted to attack me in 1902?
19 Jun 16 UTC I convinced them to.
19 Jun 16 UTC That wasn't very nice of you.
19 Jun 16 UTC That was actually to your benefit. If it was just Russia and me you would have died. Those guys coordinated without me so I had to protect you there.
19 Jun 16 UTC Well, the arrogant part of me wants to say that if it had just been you and Russia, I would have convinced Austria, Italy, England, and Turkey to kill you guys before you could kill me. :-p

You're right though, that the part where all four of you couldn't take Munich was pretty helpful in getting your help, and then Austria's help. If it had just been you and Russia, I might have been able to survive, but I almost certainly wouldn't have come out of it stronger than before. Nevertheless, it's never a good feeling to wake up and see that all 4 of the neighbors you weren't trying to fight all decided to attack you.
19 Jun 16 UTC Congrats! It was remarkably pleasant losing to both of you. Well done!
19 Jun 16 UTC I'll take third!
