10 Sep 16 UTC Spring, 2005: Spain speaking

Italy is grasping. I would guess they weren't trying to make new enemies but rather needed to consolidate their lines.
10 Sep 16 UTC Autumn, 2005: The army in Volga is for helping me against Egypt?
11 Sep 16 UTC Autumn, 2005: Just to inform you Egypt, the army in Kazakhstan isn't against you, but my OCD was going to go insane if I didn't fill in the gap.
11 Sep 16 UTC Autumn, 2005: I'm totally the same way! You should moved that fleet in Baltic Sea to Finland too. That is the crappy thing about Egypt not wanting it ally. Now I have to fight for Africa and it is hard to get all of those regions orange.
11 Sep 16 UTC Autumn, 2005: You might have misread my last message. I'm happyt o leave you alone now.
11 Sep 16 UTC Autumn, 2005: Spain speaking:

I did miss that! It is great news. I would be happy gift you Tun in exchange for help into Ven and a mutual DMZ of Maltese Sea and Ionian Sea.

Spain out
11 Sep 16 UTC Autumn, 2005: Russia if we don't stop Egypt, he will become too big.
12 Sep 16 UTC Autumn, 2005: Maybe we can reach a peaceful conclusion. Something like Ukraine get's the Balkans, Egypt keeps Turkey, and the Black Sea is DMZ'ed.
12 Sep 16 UTC Autumn, 2005: It could be amazing. But egypt backstabbed Turkey and me. So i think we could not put our trust in him
12 Sep 16 UTC Autumn, 2005: Egypt pontificating:

Much to Italy's ire but I don't consider every attack as a stab. Few alliances ought to be permanent but represent a cooperation for mutual benefit. My goal as an ally is to make sure that the situation continues to be mutually beneficial. If the situation is not mutually beneficial then of course I will be attacked. But this is not a betrayal; it is someone acting in their own interests, which is hardly unethical.

Diplomacy has an element of risk but this risk is mitigated by our own orchestration of events and perceptions through communicating and planning (difficult in this public forum). Turkey failed to do this and thus was absorbed.
12 Sep 16 UTC Autumn, 2005: Did i stab ukraine? I thought move to Aegean from Ukr was a little hostile. I'm practically at a stand still everywhere... response to kazkhstan building in Iran. move
12 Sep 16 UTC Autumn, 2005: I certainly wished you'd have been more stab happy. I've been fighting Italy and Germany solo for a couple of years now.
15 Sep 16 UTC Spring, 2006: Russia wanna help me against Egypt? I think he will never stop to attack me.
15 Sep 16 UTC Spring, 2006: Not to spoil anything but i don't have moves to attack either this turn. Also have a move to try for Tunisia and support into Venice. Didn't know which unit was attacking.
15 Sep 16 UTC Spring, 2006: Russia wanna help me against Egypt? I think he will never stop to attack me.
15 Sep 16 UTC Spring, 2006: have i to trust u?
15 Sep 16 UTC Autumn, 2006: Spain Speaking:

UK has been this difficult all game. They don't communicate or cooperate. This bounce in West Med is typical. Please have Morocco support my fleet to Tun to Algeria so that I can get out of Tun for you.
15 Sep 16 UTC Autumn, 2006: Thank you Ukraine. Ill support your holds, but I can't launch a full scale attack
16 Sep 16 UTC Autumn, 2006: Rome or Tus?
16 Sep 16 UTC Autumn, 2006: Rome
16 Sep 16 UTC Autumn, 2006: Np
16 Sep 16 UTC Autumn, 2006: Great
17 Sep 16 UTC Autumn, 2006: Russia after me, there is you. You decided to be neutral too much time.
17 Sep 16 UTC Autumn, 2006: Egypt sorry about the obfuscation on that one but I figured UK would do something like that. But since it worked and you got Tun so there was no harm done. I hoping that you will help me by squeezing the fleet in Apu. I can rebuild it somewhere. It is faster than moving along.
19 Sep 16 UTC Spring, 2007: Egypt- never mind about Apu I will move the slow way out of the Med.
20 Sep 16 UTC Spring, 2007: What is the goal this year? I'm kind of entertained with attacking Ukraine only because he is likely to attack me again... I don't want to attack Spain or Russia.

What I'll do is see what Russia does. If for some reason he finally stabs Ukraine I'll join. Otherwise I'm just sitting here... wondering if we are supposed to declare a 5 way draw or something.
20 Sep 16 UTC Spring, 2007: u moved to macedonia lol u were clearly preaparing an attack against me and u attacked me first.
20 Sep 16 UTC Spring, 2007: It was an interesting experiment with the Wilson style game but I didn't like it. I'm okay with just drawing from here.
20 Sep 16 UTC Spring, 2007: Though if the game continues I will keep plugging away against Germany, cooperate with Egypt in Ukraine but leaving most of the SCs for them as my borders would be indefensible if I pushed in southern Europe.
20 Sep 16 UTC Spring, 2007: I attacked first? You mean the Aegean Sea? I'm happy to stop attacking you... I've not officially attacked since I took Istanbul back.
20 Sep 16 UTC Spring, 2007: well i want greece back so.
20 Sep 16 UTC Spring, 2007: So I guess we won't be doing a draw then.
20 Sep 16 UTC Spring, 2007: This is an unranked game. There should have been a lot more bloodshed. I am not sure what Ukraine's next step could be if he took Greece. So I'll just hold on right now.
20 Sep 16 UTC Spring, 2007: If I miss any turns, it's not cause I'm being lazy. I have some mystery virus and am going to be in the hospital. I'm not crippled or anything, just gonna be monitored.
20 Sep 16 UTC Spring, 2007: That doesn't sound good at all. Get better!
20 Sep 16 UTC Spring, 2007: Should have voted draw
21 Sep 16 UTC Spring, 2007: Last 10 minutes and ukraine hasn't ordered? How aweful a person am i if i redo my moves to just attack?
21 Sep 16 UTC Spring, 2007: I was sure u would have not attack me and draw :)
21 Sep 16 UTC Bye all. Thanks, Egypt. Things were not going well for me, but you proofed to be a reliable ally.
21 Sep 16 UTC Once Italy is gone we are drawing... Ukraine I will support you back into Austria. I assume it is from Hungry.
21 Sep 16 UTC Ill do the same Ukraine.
21 Sep 16 UTC ty
23 Sep 16 UTC It's high noon in the Caucasus.
23 Sep 16 UTC Egypt, draw, you whore :)
23 Sep 16 UTC Dang it. Okay.... I push draw... Good game all!

I'd work with each of you again in the future be glad to do so!
23 Sep 16 UTC Good game
