1 excused missed turn
Game drawn
28 Jul 17 UTC Autumn, 1905: Welcome to the game
27 Aug 17 UTC Spring, 1907: Eliminate one player and I will draw (Austria would be good)
27 Aug 17 UTC Spring, 1907: I'm Austria...a key player in forcing the draw
27 Aug 17 UTC Spring, 1907: Eliminate one player and you get 7 points instead of 6...
28 Aug 17 UTC Spring, 1907: rip half pint
30 Aug 17 UTC Spring, 1907: But it's a profit!

When will Ita fall into CD? He may have retreat or two soon - maybe one directly OTB...
02 Sep 17 UTC Spring, 1907: he has to miss two phases in a row, then the system kicks him into CD. Hey, you guys joined the game with 7 days deadlines, don't complain when it is painfully sloooooooow
02 Sep 17 UTC Spring, 1907: if Turkey votes DRAW, boom game over...
02 Sep 17 UTC Spring, 1907: In fact, a power must to miss two TURNS, a turn being composed by one uo to three PHASES. :)
02 Sep 17 UTC Spring, 1907: Oh, I'm used to vdip where games may have different CD politics - customized NMR's, from NMR's off to more turns until CD'ing.
02 Sep 17 UTC Spring, 1907: i think it's two phases, not 100% sure, but I think I have seen a player miss a move, then a retreat, and go into CD. I am not 100% certain however.
03 Sep 17 UTC Spring, 1907: Ok. The way that I am seeing things, it is that everyone apart from England and I will make a profit if we draw now.
03 Sep 17 UTC Spring, 1907: Although, the way that England is slowly growing, I think that there will be a profit in it real soon
04 Sep 17 UTC Spring, 1907: This is quite the world war here.
Though a bit isolated, France has been enjoying its dance with England.
Congrats to Russia for getting to add a 3rd unit in StP.
Congrats to AUSTRIA for surviving another turn.
04 Sep 17 UTC Spring, 1907: I don't see whole big deal about profit...
04 Sep 17 UTC Spring, 1907: If the game is fun and anyone thinks they can still win, then keep going
04 Sep 17 UTC Spring, 1907: Just cannot believe the deadlines are really seven days...
04 Sep 17 UTC Spring, 1907: Turkey, if you think you can still solo, keep going, if you think we've stopped you, vote draw
04 Sep 17 UTC Spring, 1907: You have stopped me but your excellent point about fun still remains. And, I like profit. When shared equally. A lot of you are replacements, which is great of you. But you are still getting some free DPoints - about 1 considering the effort that you have put in.
04 Sep 17 UTC Spring, 1907: Dude, it's a five point game...
04 Sep 17 UTC Spring, 1907: I have like 800...
04 Sep 17 UTC Spring, 1907: Doesn't really matter
05 Sep 17 UTC Spring, 1907: Doug, for some people the real rankings are these:

05 Sep 17 UTC Spring, 1907: Yes, I've seen those, but August isn't posted yet
05 Sep 17 UTC Spring, 1907: I raced up pretty high in July though!
05 Sep 17 UTC Spring, 1907: Suddenly Aug and Sep

05 Sep 17 UTC Spring, 1907: Ooh, look.at my gunboat rating, 69...
15 Sep 17 UTC Autumn, 1907: STOP THE TURKISH SOLO...
16 Sep 17 UTC Autumn, 1907: Yeah, right. How am I going to reach 18.
I want a smaller draw.
30 Sep 17 UTC Autumn, 1908: Oh when the TURKS, go marchin' in;
Oh when the TURKs go marchin' in.
Oh how I want to be in that number,
When the TURKS go marchin' in.
EVERYBODY SING!
Oh when those SCs,
start turnin' yellow;
Oh when those SCs,
Start turnin' yellow.
We know the game,
Is almost over;
when those 18 SCs,
turn to yellow.
30 Sep 17 UTC Autumn, 1908: Swing Pink, Sweet Supply Centres,
As the draw comes soon.
Swing Blue, Sweet Supply Centres,
As the draw comes soon
30 Sep 17 UTC Autumn, 1908: You're a poet
But you don't know it
But your feet show it.
They're Long Fellows...
30 Sep 17 UTC Autumn, 1908: I only did that as:
'The saints go marching in',
'Swing Low, Sweet Chariot', and
'I'm gonna sing, [sing, sing]' make a really nice round
03 Oct 17 UTC Autumn, 1908: Hi Everyone,
I will be on a 5-day trip beginning at 4am on Wednesday morning (10/4/2017) West-Coast time, and will be in wilds of British Columbia, with no internet or Wi-Fi.
I will turn in the upcoming Autumn 1908 before then, and will be out of communication until late in the evening the following Monday.
20 Oct 17 UTC Spring, 1909: it's the end for Austria.... sigh...
21 Oct 17 UTC Spring, 1909: Good bye AUSTRIA, you stayed in the game a long time with only 1 SC.
Well done.
28 Oct 17 UTC Spring, 1910: ENGLAND may be quite, but they are consistent.

TURKEY, congrats on reaching 14 SCs. Can you smell it? The sweet smell of victory!
29 Oct 17 UTC Spring, 1910: Nope.
29 Oct 17 UTC Spring, 1910: My max is 15 basically
30 Oct 17 UTC Spring, 1910: Well, Aus and Ita are both gone, you should draw :P
06 Nov 17 UTC Autumn, 1910: Woops, I misordered Mos and risked the Ukr position. Won't happen again.
There's a clear stalemate line formed, Turkey...
06 Nov 17 UTC Spring, 1911: Maybe on your side
07 Nov 17 UTC Spring, 1911: I think the stalemate is pretty clear everywhere, you dont have a way to 3 to 2 in the med
07 Nov 17 UTC Spring, 1911: Your only way in is by Getting a fleet into Pie so that you can 3 to 2 the Gulf of Lyon, but even doing that you wont be able to take the western Med due to the flee in the Mid-Atlantic. As long as France moves their army from Paris to Bur you wont be able to advance into Marseilles.
07 Nov 17 UTC Spring, 1911: So... why not Draw. Lol
08 Nov 17 UTC Spring, 1911: I vote Draw!
Yippee!
13 Nov 17 UTC Autumn, 1911: And now Turkey takes Gulf of Lyon and with it can do nothing. Can we please just draw this? lol
16 Nov 17 UTC I was going to try and draw you to take more centres
16 Nov 17 UTC You did it right. There was a chance to reduce the draw to a four-way eliminating Russia. But you would need to withdraw more units to give G enough room to make it safely. Of course I would not be happy and could try to throw the game to you in the process. ;-)
Britain and France needed foreign mediation to reach peace. Perhaps this distraction added another factor to allow the russian survival.
