02 Apr 18 UTC Autumn, 1902: ooft, there's the stab

This is probably my spiciest game as a Russian player, we'll see how it goes.
08 Apr 18 UTC Spring, 1903: R.I.P me.

This was a really brutal one for me.
10 Apr 18 UTC Autumn, 1903: Gg Russia, you didn't have a chance on this one.
11 Apr 18 UTC Autumn, 1903: Yeah not really, that's probably the worst opening year I've had in a game. Interested to see if Ita, Aus, Ger and Eng will draw or if sides will form, the latter of which seems most likely.
12 Apr 18 UTC Spring, 1904: Moderator: (goldfinger0303): This game will be paused until Sunday on player request
16 Apr 18 UTC Spring, 1904: Moderator: (goldfinger0303): You're all set
17 Apr 18 UTC Autumn, 1904: Argh! I pooched it!
26 Apr 18 UTC Spring, 1906: Sorry about that guys, didn't expect to be gone that long
28 Apr 18 UTC Spring, 1906: Moderator: (goldfinger0303): England has been docked a day's pause for the NMR. One more and he will be removed from the tournament.
02 May 18 UTC Autumn, 1906: I love France's tenacity and perseverance.
03 May 18 UTC Autumn, 1906: Thanks, it's the one thing you can always have in spades
03 May 18 UTC Autumn, 1906: No one's conquered Finland...

HUZZAH!
07 May 18 UTC Autumn, 1907: Moderator: (goldfinger0303): I'll be contacting England's captain about this NMR.
07 May 18 UTC Autumn, 1907: Well, England will achieve his goal.
07 May 18 UTC Autumn, 1907: Seems like it. If England hadn't been so obstinate about not letting me into Portugal...
07 May 18 UTC Autumn, 1907: Moderator: (goldfinger0303): Germany, could you unready please. Just in case that causes something weird to happen.
07 May 18 UTC Autumn, 1907: Done.
08 May 18 UTC Autumn, 1907: Ready to rock and roll. Cheers!
12 May 18 UTC Autumn, 1908: Au revoir mes amis, au revoir!
13 May 18 UTC Autumn, 1908: Au revoir mon ami.
14 May 18 UTC Autumn, 1908: Moderator: (goldfinger0303): Paused for 48 hours
15 May 18 UTC Autumn, 1908: Moderator: (goldfinger0303): Unpaused
19 May 18 UTC Spring, 1909: Can I request a pause; I'm in spotty wifi for the long weekend and I don't want to lose out on any negotiating, etc. Thank you!
19 May 18 UTC Spring, 1909: Moderator: (goldfinger0303): Done
21 May 18 UTC Spring, 1909: Moderator: (goldfinger0303): All set
24 May 18 UTC Autumn, 1909: I am guessing we lost Italy?
24 May 18 UTC Autumn, 1909: Ah, crap! Forgot what time it was.
24 May 18 UTC Autumn, 1909: Ah, and frickin'' misordered under pressure. Greece to Bul, Aegean to ION, Tunis support Greece to ION. Idiot Idiot Idiot!!!
30 May 18 UTC Autumn, 1911: You can still put your draw flag up, Austria!
31 May 18 UTC Autumn, 1911: I think there is a clear stalemate line, but Austria can try to push against it or try to fool someone with the 3-way falacy.
01 Jun 18 UTC Autumn, 1911: I've received press from Austria acknowledging their solo attempt is done. However, a finger is being pointed at England about them now making a shot for it. Yet, there is one draw vote unaccounted for.
01 Jun 18 UTC Autumn, 1911: Austria keeps threatening to move back so England can eliminate me if I don't help him to solo.
01 Jun 18 UTC Autumn, 1911: That's a damned shame.
01 Jun 18 UTC Autumn, 1911: As I believe I have told everyone individually, as soon as we are at 3, I will draw.
06 Jun 18 UTC Spring, 1913: Um, England...you took that draw vote down.
08 Jun 18 UTC Autumn, 1913: Looks to be the time to say it, but good game Germany. You were really stymied but made a good go of it to get this far.
08 Jun 18 UTC Autumn, 1913: Good game, Germany.
08 Jun 18 UTC Autumn, 1913: Thank you Italy and England.
09 Jun 18 UTC Spring, 1914: Alright Austria, draw up.
10 Jun 18 UTC Spring, 1914: I’m not one to take stuff to global but this needs to be public. From Austria: “England has asked me about a two-way draw. I don't think he is serious but I want to see what he does and for you to see what he does.”. So I’m calling bullshit, and calling you out Austria.
11 Jun 18 UTC Thanks for the good game.
11 Jun 18 UTC This was a good group. I feel like I misplayed a couple of spots that could have led to a solo, but it would have taken flawless play to get there.
11 Jun 18 UTC Moderator: (goldfinger0303): Man, I totally thought HB was gonna get cut out
11 Jun 18 UTC I was frustrated at the progress and I know Germany definitely was. You don't know how many times we touched base and the thought of turning on you came up. But, we kept hanging on...hoping for some real central triple.
11 Jun 18 UTC Good game all.
11 Jun 18 UTC I think Austria played a really good game and he were really close to the solo at some point. England did a good job getting into position to cut me, but in a regular game it will have backfired as I would have thrown the game to Austria. This is one of the drawbacks of a team
tournament.
14 Jun 18 UTC Moderator: (Ezio): Gg everyone. Sorry about my nmrs slowing down the game and causing me to get replaced.

@rd I was banking on that when I pushed to kill you earlier. I thought my team needed a great result and the difference between me getting soloed on and a big draw wasn't significant so I could afford to game but your team cared more about the marginal score.
I figured it was you from press timing and your posts in mafia.
14 Jun 18 UTC Interesting. If Ezio hadn't been replaced, I don't think the prevent of the solo would have happened. If I hadn't been able to get Portugal, then I think it would have fallen apart pretty quickly because I was pretty vulnerable.
14 Jun 18 UTC Probably not, I was committed to throw to Austria because I knew Ezio was going to cut me.
14 Jun 18 UTC That bastard Ezio, trying to cut everyone...
