03 Mar 18 UTC Spring, 1907: it's because I'm not ready Italy
03 Mar 18 UTC Spring, 1907: fair enough
04 Mar 18 UTC Spring, 1907: Wtf? If England stayed in St. Petersburg there’d Have been no way for Russia to get it. But Russia can easily bounce England off of Edinburgh, so England just gave up a supply center.
04 Mar 18 UTC Spring, 1907: does England even know how to play lol
04 Mar 18 UTC Spring, 1907: actually, i could make it in time to push the fleet out of st. petersburg. so in england's defense they actually avoided a scenario where i lock them in barents sea. not sure if they thought that far though.
04 Mar 18 UTC Spring, 1907: where is that english fleet that was at mid atlantic
04 Mar 18 UTC Spring, 1907: seems like it got pushed back by italy's fleet so it needs to decide where to retreat
04 Mar 18 UTC Autumn, 1907: Nah, they traded at least zero supply centers for zero supply centers. It’d have made sense if they’d sent the fleet now in Berlin west, but instead they seem to be greedy and decided to attack Austria when they’re down.
04 Mar 18 UTC Autumn, 1907: If they were going to abandon Belgium and Holland to Russia anyways, they could have actually committed to something and had the fleet now in Berlin help them in. They could have traded support with Austria, who also is in Scandinavia.
04 Mar 18 UTC Autumn, 1907: Instead, they decided to do hw one course of action that alienates *literally every player* except Russia, who will have no incentive to share a draw with them. Seriously, attacking Italy and France and Austria in one turn?
04 Mar 18 UTC Autumn, 1907: SOON THE SUN WILL NEVER RISE IN THE BRITISH EMPIRE
04 Mar 18 UTC Autumn, 1907: but just to clarify Russia's stance: there is no collaboration between England and Russia. Edinburgh and threatening to take Liverpool is just a very good bargaining chip.
04 Mar 18 UTC Autumn, 1907: and england, you can only convoy if both the army and the fleet agree to do so :(
04 Mar 18 UTC Autumn, 1907: That’s precisely what’s bewildering about all of this. England is not even allied with Russia (and had no reason to believe so) but decided to make enemies of everyone else.
04 Mar 18 UTC Autumn, 1907: GG Russia.
04 Mar 18 UTC Autumn, 1907: yup congrats
04 Mar 18 UTC Autumn, 1907: wait england tried to use russian ship to convoy from london to edinburgh LOL
04 Mar 18 UTC Spring, 1908: wtf lol
04 Mar 18 UTC Spring, 1908: let us hope the imbalance of England’s continued existence will be presently rectified
04 Mar 18 UTC Spring, 1908: If Turkey is wiped off the face of the Earth, it’s only regret will be that it failed to destroy England itself
04 Mar 18 UTC Spring, 1908: gg Russia. We shall fight to the end!
05 Mar 18 UTC Spring, 1908: idk if this is intentional, but Russia and Turkey, you need to click the ready button. if you're actually still mulling over your orders, ignore this message
05 Mar 18 UTC Spring, 1908: Nice one Turkey. :O
05 Mar 18 UTC Autumn, 1908: game would've been so much better if i've not been afk the first like 5 turns
05 Mar 18 UTC Autumn, 1908: That’s solely your fault, lol.
05 Mar 18 UTC Autumn, 1908: It’s respect for the time and effort of others, simple as that, when the obligation for a person is only at most ten minutes every thirty six hours.
06 Mar 18 UTC Autumn, 1908: i know lmao
06 Mar 18 UTC Autumn, 1908: also I was germany when the game started, i was pretty sure
06 Mar 18 UTC Autumn, 1908: it was super weird
06 Mar 18 UTC Autumn, 1908: I am certain that was not the case.
06 Mar 18 UTC Autumn, 1908: then i must have misread it
06 Mar 18 UTC Autumn, 1908: but, i thought i was germany originally
06 Mar 18 UTC Autumn, 1908: my apologies to everyone
06 Mar 18 UTC Autumn, 1908: Not sure why you are trying to make bizarre excuses. No one is holding it against you personally; it is the first game for almost all of us. Making up strange stories, however, does yourself a disservice. Simply be an adult and accept responsibility.
06 Mar 18 UTC Autumn, 1908: It is not a strange story. The name I created in the game was Otto Von Bismarck. Now I thought it was because I was Germany, but now look at it, it's more like this name clouded my memory.
06 Mar 18 UTC Autumn, 1908: Tho it was no excuse, and I never intended that to be an excuse. Again, I'm sorry for not being more engaged to everyone who waited for my turn
06 Mar 18 UTC Spring, 1909: we can consider this game a trial run anyhow since most of us probably haven't played before
06 Mar 18 UTC Spring, 1909: yep
06 Mar 18 UTC Spring, 1909: not salty about losing guys haha
06 Mar 18 UTC Spring, 1909: anyways, sorry about compromising everyone's gaming experience, I'm the only one in the wrong here
06 Mar 18 UTC Spring, 1909: np, first game for almost everyone
06 Mar 18 UTC Autumn, 1909: just commenting to remind Russia about the ready button (unless you're still negotiating ofc)
07 Mar 18 UTC Autumn, 1909: I think Russia knows about the ready button :P Can probably hold off reminding them in the future. Good reminders in general though.
07 Mar 18 UTC Autumn, 1909: sometimes you just forget to click the dang button
07 Mar 18 UTC Autumn, 1909: hahaha
12 Mar 18 UTC Autumn, 1911: GG! I'd resign, but there's no option available here :(
12 Mar 18 UTC Autumn, 1911: be resilient like me! there are still major parts you can play
12 Mar 18 UTC Autumn, 1911: game will end by autumn 1912
12 Mar 18 UTC Autumn, 1911: works for me. at least it'll be over quick
12 Mar 18 UTC Autumn, 1911: lol russia doesn't have space to build its 4 new troops
