08 Mar 17 UTC Autumn, 2000: I'm going to lose because Germany got replaced. That's a great thought.
08 Mar 17 UTC Autumn, 2000: :(
08 Mar 17 UTC Autumn, 2000: Well that and you ignored the obvious signs that the new german player was going after you and in turn you made some pretty bad moves that have most likely screwed you.
09 Mar 17 UTC Autumn, 2000: Like attacking me...
09 Mar 17 UTC Autumn, 2000: Very true, France. I tried making it work, and it just didn't play out for me.
09 Mar 17 UTC Autumn, 2000: Former Germany was naive. Russia stabbed Ukraine and he was organising his stab of Germany. I decided to go against him because he tried to sell me he had moved Gda to Baltic to support me against England :D. And when he was asked to go back he "made a mistake" and sent it to Lit instead of Gda... Last but not least: Russia is far away from having lost. Ukraine is in a very bad position.
10 Mar 17 UTC Spring, 2001: Once again, the move to Gda was truly a mistake. I did not lie there, it was a mistake. And former Germany was not naive. I trusted him and was loyal to him. I would have never gone after old Germany, so that's what really sucks about this.
11 Mar 17 UTC Autumn, 2001: That's life, honey.
11 Mar 17 UTC Autumn, 2001: I agree with you, Turkey. Nothing I can do about it.
11 Mar 17 UTC Autumn, 2001: It is always distabilizing when a player leaves a game and it may kill someone's whole plan... It is sad that it happens so often...
11 Mar 17 UTC Autumn, 2001: For sure, but it definitely happens. You played your position well and practically will take me out in three years of your arrival. For that, I must applaud you. No hard feelings there whatsoever.
11 Mar 17 UTC Autumn, 2001: Yeah just missing turns can mess up your allies plans pretty good
14 Mar 17 UTC Autumn, 2002: This is getting ridiculous, I swear you guys are just throwing the game to germany at this point.
14 Mar 17 UTC Autumn, 2002: Was wondering for a while there if you left too
16 Mar 17 UTC Spring, 2003: I agree France. I propose that England, France, Ukraine and Egypt team to stalemate Germany. But France you need to enter moves! Egypt/France, please communicate to stop German's progress in Mon/Mar.
Russia is finished, Sorry Spain, but your sc are better used for England/France. England takes Por, France Madrid supported by And, G-Ly can cover Mar this year.
With Ukraine we can hold our corner, Egypt please pour into Italy, Liguria, Adriatic.
16 Mar 17 UTC Spring, 2003: Instead of finishing this game at 6, I'd rather suggest that Egypt and Ukraine eliminate Turkey (with my support if needed) and that England and Germany eliminate France.
16 Mar 17 UTC Spring, 2003: Haha, good proposition, but that's too much opening for your solo.
16 Mar 17 UTC Spring, 2003: For France, that's done. I may be easy to convince that we do it for Turkey too if I step back a little bit. Egypt seems to play in close combination with you but in that case we will take care of you and Egypt ;-)

Any comment ?
17 Mar 17 UTC Autumn, 2003: With France NMR and Britain's offensive... I thing you'll get a solo, Germany.
18 Mar 17 UTC Spring, 2004: Good luck everyone!
20 Mar 17 UTC Autumn, 2004: Great, egypts missed phase has fucked the rest of us.
20 Mar 17 UTC Autumn, 2004: We are done anyway, you missed crucial phases too, France. Russia and Britain were two open houses...
20 Mar 17 UTC Autumn, 2004: Yeah I messed up too but I committed myself to stopping germany and we still had a chance if egypt didnt miss.
20 Mar 17 UTC Autumn, 2004: Marseille, Croatia, London, Lvp. The last one to fall for the Turkish solo will probably be Ukrainian.
20 Mar 17 UTC Autumn, 2004: If egypt doesnt miss then we still have mar, he moves to adr sea so we stop germany from taking cro. As for lon, liv and ire I told england that his position was untenable and that he should pull back to brittany, BoB, MAO and SAP but he ignored me and said that he thought he could still block germany from taking them. So now hes overextended and germany is behind his defenses and is in the channel. Also if spain wasnt in navarra trying to fuck me over by taking bor I couldve support held mar along with egypt if he had stuck around and thats how we wouldve kept mar.
20 Mar 17 UTC Autumn, 2004: Also even with spain fucking the rest of us over we still couldve held mar or traded mar for ven if egypt had played.
20 Mar 17 UTC Autumn, 2004: @Turkey: you have written "Turkish solo"... ;-) That said, well done with Volda. I had not seen this...
20 Mar 17 UTC Autumn, 2004: @Germany : oops old habit of thinking solo.... ;-)
20 Mar 17 UTC Autumn, 2004: @all: I warned you that Turkey was the real danger. He has posted messages against a peaceful Germany in a situation of high tension; he has generated fear and doubt in your minds... And all this escalated. Congress had no other choice than declaring war and establishing a security area around our lands... Yeah: he is the only one to blame here!
20 Mar 17 UTC Autumn, 2004: In lieu of Egypts missed phase and Germanys declaration of non aggression I propose that we all celebrate with a draw voting party and end this pointless conflict once and for all. Who's with me!
20 Mar 17 UTC Autumn, 2004: I'll have whatever the Frenchmen is drinking but twice as much. Good to keep you sense oh humor about you. If Egypt plays and no one else misses a turn maybe we can give that peace loving German a friendly hug.
20 Mar 17 UTC Autumn, 2004: I'll accept with high pleasure to share a good drink with you all my friends, whether to celebrate a victory or the Peace of the Braves. But first scenario still has my preference despite that it may be harder to achieve if Egypt gives orders.
20 Mar 17 UTC Autumn, 2004: Sorry about missing that turn, I don't know how I let that happen. Germany, really thought I had you on a couple of SC's before then!
22 Mar 17 UTC High chances that it is the last turn... Let's see and good luck, guys.
22 Mar 17 UTC London Paris Venezia that's a nice trio.
Gg Germany
23 Mar 17 UTC Gg
23 Mar 17 UTC Whelp that was shit...
23 Mar 17 UTC I hesitated to attack simultaneously England, Ukraine and France after Russia's collapse... The opportunity to make a solo was real and concrete. I was lucky that it took some time to coordinate on your side, but that's always the case. GG.
23 Mar 17 UTC Congrats to germany on the free 300 points. Very well played in focusing everyones attention on russia before swooping in and grabbing all of his scs for yourself. Im still baffled by some of the moves made (and not made) by egypt and england though.
23 Mar 17 UTC Looking at their profiles, England and Egypt have just discovered the game... They lack experience on ending games...
23 Mar 17 UTC Yeah you played a great game. I still think that we could have forced a draw if egypt hadnt missed since we still would have had venice. Also if england took my advice and pulled back from lon, liv and ire and set up a stalemate line at mao, bob, brit and pic we would still have par and lyon. So we would have stopped you at 31.
23 Mar 17 UTC Yes. It was at the edge.
23 Mar 17 UTC Yes. It was at the edge.
23 Mar 17 UTC Yes. It was at the edge.
23 Mar 17 UTC France, I could say the same for you. But I'll admit to being inexperienced.
23 Mar 17 UTC But yeah, definitely made a couple of moves I wish I could take back. Thanks for a good game everyone
23 Mar 17 UTC Gg
23 Mar 17 UTC France, you let Germany grow too strong. You could/should have rallied Russia, Ukraine, England much sooner. Egy and me were out of actions, I tried to let Russia alone to no avail.
