10 Aug 16 UTC Spring, 1995: As far as my message went, it was not a specific complaint about you, Ukraine, it was a suggestion/humble request of everyone in the game in the interest of keeping things moving efficiently.
10 Aug 16 UTC Spring, 1995: I accept your point player with Turkey, I don't know how many players hadn't confirmed orders for builds when you 2 45 am my time zone, Italy's post was about 7 15 am my time zone
10 Aug 16 UTC Spring, 1995: I was just poking fun at you Ukraine, I'm sorry if I offended you
20 Aug 16 UTC Spring, 1998: I am visiting family today, so I'll ready up as late as possible ;-)

I might not be super responsive to messages today
24 Aug 16 UTC Spring, 1999: Thanks Russia, gg
24 Aug 16 UTC Spring, 1999: Hey um has anyone ever had problems with glitches with orders in this game before? I'm like 99% my orders were different to the ones that just happened...
24 Aug 16 UTC Spring, 1999: I mean I could be a complete spaz
25 Aug 16 UTC Spring, 1999: Has happened to me before. Orders different to what I recall placing.
25 Aug 16 UTC Spring, 1999: :(
27 Aug 16 UTC Autumn, 1999: not to me I discovered it was wine intake and playing multiple games ata a time that caused the confusion..
27 Aug 16 UTC Autumn, 1999: Hahaha fair play
28 Aug 16 UTC Spring, 2000: This game goes to Poland and Ukraine. gg.
06 Sep 16 UTC Spring, 2003: Thanks Britain and France
07 Sep 16 UTC Spring, 2003: Nice work Britain ..very hard to pin you down thanks for fighting to the end.
07 Sep 16 UTC Spring, 2003: Good game and thank you.
11 Sep 16 UTC Autumn, 2004: UKR and Poland we should be able to chat in global now without too much risk. well played lets finish this off and complete the 3 way split..
11 Sep 16 UTC Autumn, 2004: I don't think we need any/many more built troops to win..

I need one last one in Lyon..
11 Sep 16 UTC Autumn, 2004: I have been waiving builds for years now, so generally open to the idea.

I am doing some building this year though
12 Sep 16 UTC Spring, 2005: that's ok..
12 Sep 16 UTC Spring, 2005: So coordinating Spanish war.

I will be moving into NAV with an army.

Supporting PIE to MAR..

If you attack his fleet in Gulf Lyon with West med or and LIG you can force a disband. Which will open him up for Autumn attacks on SC.s

I will try for SAO as well and not POR in Spring..

What are your thoughts pick holes please let me know if you have an alternate idea.
12 Sep 16 UTC Spring, 2005: ok: A Pie - Mar is ordered. I'll coordinate with UKR on the other moves and let you know if there is something else
13 Sep 16 UTC Autumn, 2005: NAV to BAR can you support ??
13 Sep 16 UTC Autumn, 2005: Change of plan.

coming from AUV..
13 Sep 16 UTC Autumn, 2005: sure
13 Sep 16 UTC Autumn, 2005: one support should do it, right?
13 Sep 16 UTC Autumn, 2005: Should do.

Have a go at SVL I'm supporting SVL to POR this phase. This hopefully will give you SVL and put a unit on POR so he cant build there.
13 Sep 16 UTC Autumn, 2005: As Muammar Gaddafi, newly installed leader of the great nation of Libya, I welcome our new Ukrainian, Polish, and German overlords.
13 Sep 16 UTC Autumn, 2005: Egypt's ruler has been executed for disloyalty to his Turkish ally
Loyalty is the single most important reason for the success of the alliance between Germany, Poland and myself
14 Sep 16 UTC Autumn, 2005: What happened to my moves ??
14 Sep 16 UTC Autumn, 2005: Russian hackers?
14 Sep 16 UTC Autumn, 2005: Yorkshire hackers maybe lol..

NAv sups AUV to BOR MAO to SAO ?/ it never happended.
14 Sep 16 UTC Autumn, 2005: Some times when you scroll down with your mouse while a box is highlighted it changes the orders.
14 Sep 16 UTC Spring, 2006: yes I am more carefull now..
16 Sep 16 UTC Supports locked in..

UKR takes out last Turkish unit solid alliance guys.
16 Sep 16 UTC Errr, no he doesn't take out the last Turkish sc, the player with Turkey made disbands in a way that favoured us and kept fighting Egypt.
With SoS scoring we can include him in a draw and the points are distributed on the basis of sc' Poland will get 140 points, Germany will get 95 points, I'll get 116 points and Turkey gets one point.
But player with Turkey gets a "survive" not a defeat on his record.

Please allow the player with Turkey to participate in the draw..the one point is coming out of "my share"
16 Sep 16 UTC Knowing my luck, when the music stops and the lights come on & player names are revealed, I'll probably find out the player with Turkey is some chap with whom I've had squabbles in forum discussions.. Bloomin' krellin or brainbombe & I'll be kicking myself... Then again he might be an Almighty Mod, someone famous and important... and I'll really be kicking myself.. ha ha ha
16 Sep 16 UTC Either way, with SoS scoring it only costs us one point to allow him to participate in the draw
16 Sep 16 UTC Im cool with that..
16 Sep 16 UTC Well fought Spain...
16 Sep 16 UTC I am ok with that as well.
16 Sep 16 UTC Trousers down and show me your draws gentlemen..
16 Sep 16 UTC Do you think Turkey will hold out for the Solo ??
16 Sep 16 UTC gg all!

Thanks Ukraine and Germany for the trust! Turkey, happy that you're part of the draw
16 Sep 16 UTC Wooohooo !!! We got one high value player...good game.
16 Sep 16 UTC Not me...allanxo..there's a top line scalp
16 Sep 16 UTC You let Turkey live?.......heheheheh....very nice!....congrats to the winners!!!
17 Sep 16 UTC YEh major galah lol
17 Sep 16 UTC Special thanks to Britain and Spain who fought to the end..
17 Sep 16 UTC With SoS scoring it's easier to include a fourth player in a draw, than DSS scoring, with SoS scoring the points division is sc based rather than equal ?
So including Saria in the draw had a "very low points cost" to Naomi with polo, or Smokey Gem with Germany or myself.
I haven't looked at Saria's player page, but he's (or she's) only got 50 points, so might be a new player to the site, so I'm glad we did it.
My crack about " executing Egypt's ruler for disloyalty " was an attempt to be funny, whilst also making a comment...but Saria had me under severe pressure in the first three years, capturing Rostov, and although I have no knowledge of what was going on in his alliance with Egypt's player allanxo, the way I interpreted events in the game, it looked like allanxo made a peace with Spain attacked Italy and moved back East, which threatened Turkey's unnocupied southern flank...because Naomi with Poland supported me, as Turkey moved units South I was as to counter attack & from being flogged was able to defeat Turkey..and Saria disbanded units in a way that made it easier for me to defeat him whilst he kept fighting Egypt.
Any way the comment behind the execution for disloyalty crack was that I was getting pounded by Saria while his alliance with allanxo was strong, but as soon as there was distrust ? in the "loyalty" within their alliance..the alliance that stayed strong in mutual loyalty....Naomi ( Poland), Smokey Gem ( Germany) & myself defeated the one that faltered

So I helped him hold Libya and close to the end of the game suggested to Naomi and Smokey Gem we include Saria in the draw, and they agreed..which was generous of means Saria gets a draw in his stats and not a defeat

if Saria is a "newby" and given that allanxo is in top 2% of players on this site in standard rankings, (wonder what his "ghost ranking" is ? ) then Saria's survival in the game is a feather in his cap
17 Sep 16 UTC @ Smokey Gem...I picked MajorMitchell as a player name because it's the name of an Australian galah, & named after an explorer who was an officer.
Time for a celebratory whisky & later... "domestic Diplomacy" with the fire breathing MemSahib, Her Indoors
