03 Feb 17 UTC Spring, 2: Wtf? The game didnt warn me about the buiod phase...
10 Feb 17 UTC Autumn, 4: Nice, I didn't see that coming...
The great Darius against the whole world.
What about a draw once Egypt and Greece are eliminated?
10 Feb 17 UTC Autumn, 4: haha, thanks. Yeah a draw sounds ok. Although depending on how powerful and aggressive Carthage gets, I wouldn't mind stabbing them?
11 Feb 17 UTC Autumn, 4: ooohhhh public message, ha...
11 Feb 17 UTC Autumn, 4: kk draw draw draw, doing it now
11 Feb 17 UTC Autumn, 4: Because it's sum of square scoring, could I get Macedonia and Sparta in return for giving Persia Chersonesus? That way me and Carthage will both have 11scs at the end of the game, and Persia on 12, split as evenly as possible
13 Feb 17 UTC Autumn, 5: so much for a draw. Now the Punic wars have begun, and it looks surprisingly historically accurate for the start of them
15 Feb 17 UTC Spring, 6: why are we honestly not trying for a draw though? No one is fucking talking atm
15 Feb 17 UTC Spring, 6: I want to take some SC's before draw.
15 Feb 17 UTC Spring, 6: how many? We were equal before, even if I had the chance to go through Greece. Now we can't defeat Greece before the drae
16 Feb 17 UTC Autumn, 6: I concede defeat, can we not draw now??? ffs...
18 Feb 17 UTC Spring, 7: take some of Persia's SCs!
18 Feb 17 UTC Spring, 7: I am the only one who clicked on draw. That's what you want, isn't it?
18 Feb 17 UTC Spring, 7: I clicked Draw before, don't ask me, ask Carthage...
20 Feb 17 UTC Autumn, 7: Shall we draw now?
20 Feb 17 UTC Autumn, 7: If Carthage is. Seeming it's sum of squares (scs) scoring, we could draw now, because Greece has no scs this turn anyway
20 Feb 17 UTC Spring, 8: Carthage, if you don't draw very soon, I can still prevent you from soloing, and giving the solo to Persia instead
20 Feb 17 UTC Spring, 8: Rome, please show some good sportsmanship and play the game as it is meant to played - Don't throw the game purely to spite me
21 Feb 17 UTC Autumn, 8: I'm not? I'm the one who's voted to draw along with Persia. I'm going to lose otherwise, so I have every right to choose who I want to win
21 Feb 17 UTC Autumn, 8: ok, can we draw now? Because even if you defeat me, with Carthage getting Ravenna and Persia getting Vindobona, no one will be able to solo either...
21 Feb 17 UTC Gg Persia, you got the best of me in that South-Eastern bottleneck
21 Feb 17 UTC Thanks, that was a good game. You had to accept draw. And yeah, you had not too much troops in Egypt
21 Feb 17 UTC I realized I had only a slight chance at a solo with so few troops in Egypt, but I was hoping to overpower you in the North - Gg
22 Feb 17 UTC I told you I was able to help Persia get a solo instead.
22 Feb 17 UTC I didn't doubt you Rome, I was just hoping for a solo anyways :D
03 Mar 17 UTC a draw would've looked better on your record though, instead of survived. That's why you should've drawn after Greece was about to be defeated...
