Game drawn
06 Nov 18 UTC Autumn, 1998: You really want play a boring 4:1?
06 Nov 18 UTC Autumn, 1998: As France said. Lets' play until we are 5 and then see.
06 Nov 18 UTC Autumn, 1998: But by that time, Russia will have formed a stalemate line. I would want to wait as well but what would that change to be honest? And it would give Russia an advantage to form a line.
06 Nov 18 UTC Autumn, 1998: In this case, with my appologises, you should have been more direct in your speech agreeing with England before... , because, in my opinion, I though you wanted to draw some "messages" ago.
06 Nov 18 UTC Autumn, 1998: Do you want to know why the game went so fast? The reason for it is the existing of a Western Triple which grew very fast because of it's strength. So if you want to turn on maybe something should happen there and not a boring 4 vs 1 which is against the spirit of the game.
06 Nov 18 UTC Autumn, 1998: "against the spirit of the game", where a 3-way alliance (plus Egypt) works together, and works successfully to take on other powerful nations.

I really don't mind. I feel a draw would be a waste of the game, considering that there's 5 people left and the potential it has to go down maybe even less than 4 people. But I was in another global press modern game where it all went to s*** because just before a draw where there was a similar situation, a 3v4, and stalemate lines were formed and the SC count was about 35 (3) -20 (4) and the line was successful, but one country got bored and attacked, which resulted in my defeat as well as 3 others', including the defeat of the person (in the 4, with me) that attacked. So I want to be cautious and the draw may be (and probably is) the more logical option.
06 Nov 18 UTC Spring, 1999: The first army of England...and goes to Morocco... Good decision.
06 Nov 18 UTC Spring, 1999: France, where is Bay of Biscay heading to?
06 Nov 18 UTC Spring, 1999: Egypt: Request bounce in Algeria.
06 Nov 18 UTC Spring, 1999: France: I will block all Spanish retreats from Madrid
06 Nov 18 UTC Spring, 1999: Egypt, would you like to demiliterise Kazakhstan, Aze, Arm, Iran and Iraq?
06 Nov 18 UTC Spring, 1999: France: Egypt now has 7 fleets in the med, his builds were super friendly to Russia and not friendly to us at all.
06 Nov 18 UTC Spring, 1999: strongly suggest that we quickly finish Spain and Italy and set up a defensive line of fleet all across the western side of the med.
06 Nov 18 UTC Spring, 1999: These words, as usual in you England, are quite offensive.
06 Nov 18 UTC Spring, 1999: As was your army in Morocco.
06 Nov 18 UTC Spring, 1999: Do you suggest I had to build an Army in Libya instead of a fleet? Had it being more friendly to Russia?
06 Nov 18 UTC Spring, 1999: I have 8 units defending my territories against Russia, and only three free in the Mediterranean. Don't look very treating against France.
06 Nov 18 UTC Spring, 1999: I merely suggested that we set up a border defense, which of course is normal, not offensive in any way.
06 Nov 18 UTC Spring, 1999: You say "not friendly to us at all"... As I said, quite offensive, because you told this to France, when he has more to threaten from you than from me.
06 Nov 18 UTC Spring, 1999: I, m not going to move my army in Tunnis. No need to bounce. I haven't move it yet and not going to do now.
06 Nov 18 UTC Spring, 1999: If I enter in Algeria or Sahara then you can treat me as a backstabber, but not yet.
07 Nov 18 UTC Spring, 1999: Russia, I contemplated attacking you, and it might not get me very far but I would gain a few SCs. I want to fight, but I would rather draw. I will on one condition. You give me Warsaw.
07 Nov 18 UTC Spring, 1999: Nice, that we have spoken so early about it. If it is your desperately wish to get Warsaw, you can have it. But in return you really not going to attack me which includes three points:
(1) no further demands of centers
(2) I get permission to occuppy Podolia
(3) demilitarisation of Bhm Sea
Please confirm that you have read my message.
07 Nov 18 UTC Spring, 1999: France: Where is Bay of Biscay moving to?
07 Nov 18 UTC Spring, 1999: And why did it leave port in Bordeaux at all?
07 Nov 18 UTC Spring, 1999: Confirmed
07 Nov 18 UTC Spring, 1999: I have no answer from the same question posed 15 hours ago.
07 Nov 18 UTC Spring, 1999: And I am going offline and may have to block the possible sea movements.
07 Nov 18 UTC Spring, 1999: Ok I will withdraw.
07 Nov 18 UTC Spring, 1999: Hi England sorry, it moved there to help with the effort with Spain, I’m not equipped to fight you and have no desire to no worries sir. I have it holding this turn
07 Nov 18 UTC Spring, 1999: Hi England kindly disengage your fleets from our dmz spaces. Sorry for the slow reply but there was really nothing to be paranoid in the first place. I think everyone can agree you seem a little carried away
07 Nov 18 UTC Spring, 1999: Yup
07 Nov 18 UTC Spring, 1999: Agree with France.
@France, holding my fleets.
@Russia, thanks for DMZ Armenia. I retreat this turn from Iraq. My fleet in Iran can not worry you: where it is can not advance more and at the same time prevents the creation of an army there.
07 Nov 18 UTC Spring, 1999: Ok, that works for me.
07 Nov 18 UTC Spring, 1999: France, I will move my fleets back away immediately
08 Nov 18 UTC Autumn, 1999: Podolia. Best evert supported unit. LOL.
Draw?
08 Nov 18 UTC Autumn, 1999: cannot vote draw until after Spanish unit is destroyed
08 Nov 18 UTC Autumn, 1999: Spain is worth 0.
08 Nov 18 UTC Autumn, 1999: But we can wait.
08 Nov 18 UTC Autumn, 1999: I don't want to do anything against the rules but can I propose to join another game trough this chat? Or it is forbidden?
08 Nov 18 UTC Autumn, 1999: You can propose, just send the link in global, do not say your user name
08 Nov 18 UTC Autumn, 1999: It is also an anonimous game, but 5 minutes phase, without chat. I wanted to try.
08 Nov 18 UTC Autumn, 1999: you can post the game anywhere you want, just do not post your user name.
08 Nov 18 UTC Autumn, 1999: but if it's modern, do 7 minutes, not 5, 5 is crazy towards the end.
08 Nov 18 UTC Let's draw Germany.
08 Nov 18 UTC Join: Thanks giving III
09 Nov 18 UTC Good draw all!

09 Nov 18 UTC Ridiculous
