05 Jul 18 UTC Autumn, 2007: [China]:Russia - where are you taking Armenia from? Moscow again?
05 Jul 18 UTC Autumn, 2007: [Europe]:NEAR EAST I AM SUPPORTING TURKEY TO HOLD. RISE AND RESIST THE FIRST WORLD OPPRESSORS.
05 Jul 18 UTC Autumn, 2007: [Europe]:Wait Egypt will tap me let me find something else
05 Jul 18 UTC Autumn, 2007: [Russia]:Yes, China
05 Jul 18 UTC Autumn, 2007: [USA]:let me know if you need anything, Russia
the move to Barents was in anticipation of you getting into stp to help build you a wall
05 Jul 18 UTC Autumn, 2007: [Russia]:I think I’m good, USA
05 Jul 18 UTC Autumn, 2007: [Kenya]:Europe NE did not move last turn , it’s why I said I would support you into Syria and pull out of alg . You can suvive . I was going to move into the med to help secure the North African coast
05 Jul 18 UTC Autumn, 2007: [Europe]:Don't attack the free folk of Morocco, they are good folk, they deserve to live in peaceful subjugation to Europe forevermore
05 Jul 18 UTC Autumn, 2007: [Kenya]:Europe what about move into syria
05 Jul 18 UTC Autumn, 2007: [Kenya]:Europe what about move into syria
06 Jul 18 UTC Autumn, 2007: [South-Africa]:Do people just want to go ahead and draw? I just noticed that a lot of people are, it's basically just me, Russia, Near East, and China that haven't voted. I don't mind calling it here, I could probably catch up to USA but the days of playtime to get there aren't really worth it for the 2-3 extra points. What do you guys think? This way Oz, Europe,
and Near East survive as well.
06 Jul 18 UTC Autumn, 2007: [Russia]:No. Europe just lost the war
06 Jul 18 UTC Autumn, 2007: [Russia]:I care little about points. I care more about enemies
06 Jul 18 UTC Autumn, 2007: [China]:I would be happy to draw. I don't think I will finish on more than the number of centres I currently have.
06 Jul 18 UTC Autumn, 2007: [Europe]:I made you what you are, Russia. Don't do this to me. I love you.
06 Jul 18 UTC Autumn, 2007: [China]:Hahahaha - desperate times call for desperate measures. Love the commitment, Europe!
06 Jul 18 UTC Autumn, 2007: [Kenya]:Happy to draw but see russias point so how about draw once Europe , NE and Oz have gone
06 Jul 18 UTC Autumn, 2007: [USA]:sorry, lost internet to a storm

well played, china
08 Jul 18 UTC Spring, 2008: [Kenya]:Looks like the oceans are about to get very busy
08 Jul 18 UTC Spring, 2008: [Kenya]:Hi Russia . Are we still splitting NE . Can we agree to the med being a DMZ
08 Jul 18 UTC Spring, 2008: [Kenya]:USA would also like to agree MED a DMZ with you
08 Jul 18 UTC Spring, 2008: [Kenya]:SA fleet TAN is moving to MOZ channel this turn . It can then move to MAD if you prefer in the fall . It is to supply support to other fleets in the Indian Ocean in case China is not friendly
08 Jul 18 UTC Spring, 2008: [Kenya]:Hi China . I hope we can agree our current positions
08 Jul 18 UTC Spring, 2008: [China]:Hi Kenya. I have zero intent to intervene in your ocean space no worries :) Would hope that you and Saffy allow me to occupy northeast Indian though. It borders 3 of my centres plus bay of bengal
08 Jul 18 UTC Spring, 2008: [China]:USA you will see that I have started leaving NWP empty. Would be grateful if you could start reciprocating in NPO
08 Jul 18 UTC Spring, 2008: [Kenya]:China happy with that as long as no more fleets appear along the Arabian Sea from which would threaten my position
08 Jul 18 UTC Spring, 2008: [Russia]:Kenya, the remaining NE supply centers are yours. I will not enter the Med
08 Jul 18 UTC Spring, 2008: [Kenya]:Thanks .
09 Jul 18 UTC Spring, 2008: [South-Africa]:Sorry I was away for most of the day. I'm fine with you in MCh if you are fine with me in Moz Kenya. I'll move back from Con as well. I trust you, but there is no reason to be silly when I have units sitting around anyway.
09 Jul 18 UTC Spring, 2008: [USA]:did china just stab Russia?
09 Jul 18 UTC Spring, 2008: [South-Africa]:Not yet? No centers were lost, although that would be fitting for delaying the draw to kill Europe that he would be killed as well. Although it could just be China's way of getting up to 17 like the two of us.
09 Jul 18 UTC Spring, 2008: [Russia]:China, imma cry.
09 Jul 18 UTC Spring, 2008: [USA]:looks like there may be a new solo threat we all need to ally against
09 Jul 18 UTC Spring, 2008: [Kenya]:SA fine . At this point stabbing each other will only open us other to others
09 Jul 18 UTC Spring, 2008: [South-Africa]:@Kenya As I said I trust you, but at the same time there is no reason to invite a stab when I have unit's there already. Do you need any help in the Indian Ocean? Oz is almost wrapped up and I can use a couple of fleets to help you.
09 Jul 18 UTC [China]:USA - feel free to join :)
09 Jul 18 UTC [Kenya]:I agree SA . Never leave the door wide open.
09 Jul 18 UTC [China]:Figured we were getting nowhere looking south. Sorry - my bad for that rubbish strategy. Your original one was correct.
09 Jul 18 UTC [China]:Do you want a support to Barents sea?
09 Jul 18 UTC [USA]:I knew you were a stabber, could tell from your early posts and the fact that you kept sneaking fleets into sea zones along my coastline.

Should have moved against you instead of brazil years ago.

Learning moment.

SO

SAf, Kenya, we should talk.

All 3 of us are in great position to attack china, who clearly wants a solo, and as the only Asian power, he can get one if we let him get into position to stab us. He's patient, will wait years, talking the talk and saying whatever he needs to say.

All 3 of us can attack him, all 3 of us benefit from attacking him, and we cannot say that about any other player here.

Think it over, he is a real solo threat; no on else is.
09 Jul 18 UTC [Europe]:USA you can just vote draw and end the game right now. Better not to risk a solo by China.
09 Jul 18 UTC [South-Africa]:>Solo threat
>China has 15 centers
>Spends an entire day insisting USA isn't even close to winning because to win you need like 45 centers

Ok

Just vote draw then.
09 Jul 18 UTC [USA]:Good game folks!
09 Jul 18 UTC [South-Africa]:GG, this was an interesting one with a lot of ups and downs!
09 Jul 18 UTC [Kenya]:Good game
09 Jul 18 UTC [Europe]:Such sweet survival!
09 Jul 18 UTC [Europe]:Good game, well played all!
09 Jul 18 UTC [China]:Looks like I was lucky to survive! Well played everyone!
09 Jul 18 UTC [Russia]:Good game.
10 Jul 18 UTC [Near-East]:GG everyone.
