06 Oct 17 UTC Autumn, 1997: Win sooner then =D
06 Oct 17 UTC Autumn, 1997: Two weeks, it's too much, you'd better find a temporary replacement, a friend to sit over your account? Alert the moderator team before doing so!
06 Oct 17 UTC Autumn, 1997: Yeah, I'm just out till Monday at the latest, probably back Sunday evening though.
08 Oct 17 UTC Spring, 1998: I'm back y'all.
21 Oct 17 UTC Autumn, 2001: It is honestly amazing that the first elimination has finally occurred. Sorry Germany, you fought well.
21 Oct 17 UTC Autumn, 2001: I'm about to go now to
21 Oct 17 UTC Autumn, 2001: Sorry that was meant to be too
22 Oct 17 UTC Autumn, 2001: Breaking News: Turkish army bungles bombardment, attacks itself in confusion!
23 Oct 17 UTC Autumn, 2001: Egypt narrowly holds onto Aswan, thousands of Turks dead in the friendly fire, turns out territory was abandoned.
23 Oct 17 UTC Spring, 2002: I know - WTF? lol
23 Oct 17 UTC Spring, 2002: Meanwhile Germany is still alive.
23 Oct 17 UTC Spring, 2002: I know right? What a clusterfuck of a year. Haha
26 Oct 17 UTC Autumn, 2002: To be clear I never actually believed France and Poland. But I had nothing to lose.
26 Oct 17 UTC Autumn, 2002: :(
26 Oct 17 UTC Autumn, 2002: You should have believed me in Spring 1997...
26 Oct 17 UTC Autumn, 2002: It's true. We did ask for your help a long time ago and you never responded.
27 Oct 17 UTC Autumn, 2002: New Russia
27 Oct 17 UTC Autumn, 2002: Looking for allies
27 Oct 17 UTC Autumn, 2002: Old Egypt
27 Oct 17 UTC Autumn, 2002: Looking for Pharaohs
27 Oct 17 UTC Autumn, 2002: :C RIP Egypt.
27 Oct 17 UTC Autumn, 2002: Hey guys, I'll be able to get on in the afternoon tomorrow, but after that I'll be camping this weekend, are you guys cool with pausing until Sunday afternoon? I really like this game and I'm excited to see what happens with it.
27 Oct 17 UTC Autumn, 2002: @France @Poland you're absolutely right, I should have.
27 Oct 17 UTC Autumn, 2002: @Italy, my vote for pause is in my friend.
29 Oct 17 UTC Autumn, 2003: I cancelled my pause as the weekend is over :(
30 Oct 17 UTC Autumn, 2003: Likewise.
30 Oct 17 UTC Autumn, 2003: Well, thank you to everyone who did vote pause.
03 Nov 17 UTC Autumn, 2004: Well played guys. GG
05 Nov 17 UTC Autumn, 2005: I'd say good game, Russia, but you attacked me even when I wanted peace. Justice was swift and cruel.
05 Nov 17 UTC Autumn, 2005: Eh, Russia was never destined to survive anyways. Figured I'd give it a go and see how long I could hold out. Made our last stand on the high plateaus with dignity
08 Nov 17 UTC Autumn, 2006: Thank you Britain, it is a pity we could not coordinate earlier ;)
08 Nov 17 UTC Autumn, 2006: Congratulations to Italy, you are the heart of the winning alliance.
08 Nov 17 UTC Autumn, 2006: Compliments to Poland, a trustworthy partner.
08 Nov 17 UTC Autumn, 2006: Oh sorry it is not over yet!
Turkey, my ottoman friend, you're trying hard to deliver the game, but it is utterly impossible to break through central europe. You fought with honor, now it's time to give up with honor.
09 Nov 17 UTC Spring, 2007: I mean, even if it's not over yet, it's still some very nice sentiments to hear. :)
15 Nov 17 UTC Autumn, 2008: If P NMR's again - 10 minutes from now - then it goes CD...
Italy could set draw asap - before a new player joins - and we 3-way as FIT...
15 Nov 17 UTC Autumn, 2008: Hi! New Poland here.
15 Nov 17 UTC Autumn, 2008: Welcome in, uber. Let's finish this off?? ;)
15 Nov 17 UTC Autumn, 2008: Sorry to ruin your plan France.
15 Nov 17 UTC Autumn, 2008: Good things come to those who wait CCR.
15 Nov 17 UTC Autumn, 2008: My draw vote will be in as soon as Turkey is dead.
15 Nov 17 UTC Autumn, 2008: Hey - I'm turkey
15 Nov 17 UTC Autumn, 2008: Oh, hey Turkey, forgot you were there.
17 Nov 17 UTC Autumn, 2009: Hey, I'm out of town, can we pause for a few days? I'll be back home in three or so days, and have more of a routine of checking on my games.
02 Dec 17 UTC Autumn, 2010: Come on Poland, we have the stalemate line under our hands, we just cannot dare NMR'ing. Again. So please draw it. Play with honor.
02 Dec 17 UTC Autumn, 2010: No.
02 Dec 17 UTC Autumn, 2010: Italy, it depends solely on you!!
03 Dec 17 UTC Autumn, 2010: Good luck with that.
12 Dec 17 UTC Good fight guys.
12 Dec 17 UTC Nice touch T being part of the draw!

I took over a small France, first thing I did was looking for partnership with Britain against Spain, for no results. At the same time, I tried to make a deal with I&P for a peaceful central europe, and it worked as they both supported me to Mun, and then G was lost. Meanwhile Spain gained ground, he won Tun from Ital and Ire from Brit, but never a center from me; the turn of the tide for France against Spain was (1) the polish agreement to stop harassing the northern seas, allowing the british to redeem and fight solely Spain; and (2) the italian playing double agent and coming to my aid - note the first Italy was allied to everyone, except Turkey.

Since Poland and Italy were the big guys, I was happy to have a three way draw with them, since they needed a third party to control each other. I went smoothly and the game was about to end by 2008 when P disappeared. Italy played weird and also disappeared two years later. The rest is recent history you all know.
