19 Sep 17 UTC Autumn, 1902: Well said France.
Hoping for good cooperation with you soon. If you need anything from me just ask, I am all yours agains German pirates.
19 Sep 17 UTC Autumn, 1902: Italy, my people just want to try Hungarian wines in Budapest. No intension to fight against such great leader as you. I am going to focus on Baltic Sea area.
19 Sep 17 UTC Autumn, 1902: Italy: Sure my friend! I am protect my home water only. No intention to be aggressive there.
Russia: Sure Russian friend, I will move Bulgaria to Serbia. I will help you back by next year to get Budapest.
19 Sep 17 UTC Autumn, 1902: Russia and Turkey, So then the three of us meet at the triangle of Serbia,Budapest and Trieste to celebrate with the hungarians theire freedom.
20 Sep 17 UTC Autumn, 1902: Cheers :)
20 Sep 17 UTC Autumn, 1902: What the plan now guys? I would like to focus on German leader, as he is obviously not to be trusted.
Not like my southern friends.
20 Sep 17 UTC Autumn, 1902: Well I didn't pay attention to it, but it definitely looks like a juggernaut is forming in the east. Italy can't stand up to it alone and it looks like Rus/Tur are going to leave black sea a dmz. The only way to stop it is if England and Germany work with Italy.


Based on the last turn I highly dount that is going to happen but if we keep fighting in the west here, this game is going to go to Russia and Turkey in a two way draw or Russia in a solo.
20 Sep 17 UTC Autumn, 1902: Dear Russia: Thanks for eplicite giving your direction. The german leader has not send any press as far as i can remember. It is hard to send diplomats who allways return without success sending theire messages. I could imagine to send out some troops to find out whats wrong over theire.

But an open point will be how Turkey ould be part of that.
The fear France has outspoken i do have understanding. If the turkish leader wants to grow he has to go through one of us or even both. I would be happy if you and me could arrange a defence pact to ensure our security.

France: Unfortunately you are under pressure by 2 nations. If you need assistance just call me. I also offer to you a Defence pact.

Germany: Are you interested in diplomates?
20 Sep 17 UTC Autumn, 1902: I share your concerns Italy. That's why I am waiting with my troops to prepare for peace.
Army in Warsaw and Fleet in St.P are must. But what I should do with last on to go?
21 Sep 17 UTC Autumn, 1902: Oh i am curious if your fleet will be SC or NC. The third build you need to know by yourself.
21 Sep 17 UTC Autumn, 1902: Well, If only I could one in NC and second SC there would be no problem at all :) Right now it is coin flip, as both Germany and England are rather not responsive.
21 Sep 17 UTC Autumn, 1902: Again Italy, you seem to be most experienced player around the table.
I would really like to hear your long term plan for Austrian triangle resolution.
21 Sep 17 UTC Autumn, 1902: France's concern is understandable. But Anglo-German is more threatening than us.
21 Sep 17 UTC Autumn, 1902: Let's see after this winter build. But I do hope that I can continue to cooperate with my allies.
21 Sep 17 UTC Autumn, 1902: Also counting on it. Therefore I have decided to bring army in Moscow, not pointing to any of my allias south :)
21 Sep 17 UTC Spring, 1903: The Green, Yellow an Brown army's should stay together against the imperialist Violet Guy. Let us coordinate our moves.
Best Regards Kaíser Wilhelm.
21 Sep 17 UTC Spring, 1903: Is was thinking rather of making 3 pairs, E+F G+I and R+T. And fight in such alliances.
22 Sep 17 UTC Spring, 1903: Nicely done my Turkish friend. I knew I can put my trust in you and not build in Sev. Are we rolling west?
If so I think we should strike Triest from Serbia and put Italy in guessing game. What do you think about it?
22 Sep 17 UTC Spring, 1903: You are speaking with two tongues....
22 Sep 17 UTC Spring, 1903: Is everyone ignoring the obvious juggernaut in play. If we all don't work together against Russia and turkey we are going to get overrun.

England, let's stop fighting. Russia's coming your way so I'll back off and let you defend yourself from him.
22 Sep 17 UTC Spring, 1903: france i do see the forming. and now russia confirmed it even officially. i hope germany starts to conversate stronger.

germany i welcome you defending your eastern border. even in Bohemia.
22 Sep 17 UTC Spring, 1903: I will
22 Sep 17 UTC Spring, 1903: Hard to have an alliance with non responsive player. Maybe some switch Italy?
23 Sep 17 UTC Autumn, 1903: Nope! What is the point of attacking Russian friend? I just moved move to Con. I didnt intended to attack you. Hopefully we can continue our cooperation.
23 Sep 17 UTC Autumn, 1903: England, you need to stop focusing on me and focus on Russia. Once he moves into North Sea you're going to lose your centers....

We each have two fleets so your not going to be able to break through...I didn't attack you in Liverpool. You need to drop this...
23 Sep 17 UTC Autumn, 1903: well germany your secureness for munich keptyou quiet open.


Russia you did officially call for attacking me and now you regret this? You are running strongly and an international alliance is forming. Tell me why i should join your forces after your decleration of war?

Turkey - what are your plans? A time ago i did offer a defense pack to Russia. He did not acdepted this and ofcourse this is gone for now. If you are communicative we can maybe find some more friendship?
23 Sep 17 UTC Autumn, 1903: Turkey just stabbed Russia....the move to the Black Sea along with the planned move to Rumania and Budapest.
23 Sep 17 UTC Autumn, 1903: France, Yeah thats right. What is the purpose of the army in marseilles? Wouldnt it be more practical to keep it in back of Bur and Pic?
24 Sep 17 UTC Autumn, 1903: I moved it there in case I needed to help defend you. I didn't honestly know a better place to put it. I'll move it back. Again, I don't think England comprehends the situation hes in.
24 Sep 17 UTC Autumn, 1903: Fine. You can keep it theire if you want. Maybe germany lets your Bur unit move to Ruhr and Marseilles follows to Bur to give a better position?

It seems England does want to fight with you undeoendent from the point that you offer peace again and again.
24 Sep 17 UTC Autumn, 1903: Well Italy, seems Turkey is not communicative player. Maybe we should place some offer on a table?
24 Sep 17 UTC Autumn, 1903: As you see I have not attacked you :)
25 Sep 17 UTC Spring, 1904: Really?
25 Sep 17 UTC Spring, 1904: Here you are :) Still supporting you. You can check my order history. Also DMZ in Bla is in place. Sorry for moving back to Mos. Just wanted to secure all the options.
25 Sep 17 UTC Spring, 1904: France, just for you info I have ordered A Den S Ruhr-Kiel. Use it if you want.
25 Sep 17 UTC Spring, 1904: So it seems England went off the game.

Dear France and Germany: The Juggernaut is running. You see i tries to stop russia. Unfortunately it seems that Turkey wants to stuck in the corner and watch Russia overcome him for the profit of a slow gain. We three should work together.
25 Sep 17 UTC Spring, 1904: I am voting draw, as most talking is done by two guys. Let's rather start a gunboat game. It will have much more sense.
26 Sep 17 UTC Spring, 1904: The only true alliance is Russia, France, and Turkey. Clearly, Germany and Italy are untrustworthy.
26 Sep 17 UTC Spring, 1904: I want to see this Russia and turkey alliance over with. If you guys are blatantly juggernauting you are forcing the test of the board to team up on you. We won't stop until one of you stabs the other, otherwise you'll overrun us.
26 Sep 17 UTC Turkey i was offering you an alliance. I did not Break my words against you or Russia up to the point that russia offically ask you to roll me down. You preworked your units to fight me and you ttacked me in Ionian Sea. We never made up an alliance, so how can you call me untrustworthy.

germany your will to revenge is unbroken. without any big press you give up xour country.

Russia i follow your example and vote for draw.
26 Sep 17 UTC so the lesson is that public msg. game is no good?
26 Sep 17 UTC Welcome new English player.
Public message games can be very nice. But it needs some intention of strong communication.
26 Sep 17 UTC France you are the only left not vote for draw. Maybe we can afterwards recognise and invite each other to future Public games for those who want it.
26 Sep 17 UTC Got it
26 Sep 17 UTC So since it's a New England maybe you will listen to reason. The previous one didn't...
26 Sep 17 UTC Or France maybe you just draw. There is no sense to play the game if no one is really communicating.
I am really keen on woodrow wilson variant. But normally when I am back after few hours there are like 3-4 pages of chat in archive. Here it is just a gunboat with some chat.
Up to you napoleon.
26 Sep 17 UTC Didn't see the votes. Will draw.
26 Sep 17 UTC Russia: woodrow wilson variant? whats that?
26 Sep 17 UTC The one we were playing. At least 10 years ago it was called like this in live games.
All negotations around the table.
26 Sep 17 UTC that sounds fun
