13 Jan 19 UTC Spring, 2000: I'm not planning to take any of his SC's, I'll help him against Egypt!
i just wanted to know if you'll move to Algeria or SoG!
13 Jan 19 UTC Spring, 2000: if you move into SoG, I'll no move there!
14 Jan 19 UTC Spring, 2000: @Italy I aint fighting you bro... I just want to take Libya back. Its cool to truce... I will give you back Greece, but can you give me Rumania?
14 Jan 19 UTC Spring, 2000: Egypt, Russia would like Rostov and Georgia returned, . . . In the interest of fairness. ;). I-
14 Jan 19 UTC Spring, 2000: @Germany I can't think of anything you can do this turn other than cutting supports
14 Jan 19 UTC Spring, 2000: @Italy Don't give Egypt an inch
14 Jan 19 UTC Spring, 2000: Hold up.. Spain died. Im drawing.
14 Jan 19 UTC Autumn, 2000: My draw vote is, and has been, in.
14 Jan 19 UTC Autumn, 2000: Wait, you just now noticed I'm dead? Feel the love :(
18 Jan 19 UTC Spring, 2001: Why haven’t we drawn?
18 Jan 19 UTC Spring, 2001: That's the real question
18 Jan 19 UTC Spring, 2001: Who of you dont want to draw, right now?
What do you want for a draw vote?
18 Jan 19 UTC Spring, 2001: some one doesn't want to draw! =/
18 Jan 19 UTC Spring, 2001: @Italy, sorry for the bounce, I wanted to convoy there to move into WS in autumn, if you want to move to Algeria, I'll supp you instead of convoy!
18 Jan 19 UTC Spring, 2001: also, you can take Libya now very easy!
let me know if you move from Maltese or Tun, if you do with Maltese I can move there to add another fleet!
18 Jan 19 UTC Spring, 2001: Do i (or Italy) have to care about you, France?
18 Jan 19 UTC Spring, 2001: For my part I’m good with a draw
18 Jan 19 UTC Spring, 2001: Germany, France and Italy... Someone of you dont want a big draw. Russia and Poland are in a bad position and they can be happy when they get a draw. So i think they already voted draw. But i can also understand the one who prevent the draw.

Would you agree a 5 or 4 way draw?

If we know your conditions we can work for it, together. Its a draw size scoring game so it doesnt matter how much SCs you got at the end of the game.

Let me know your thoughts.

Best regards
19 Jan 19 UTC Spring, 2001: I have been drawn for a while. It is a big draw, but the game seems to have grown to an impasse. No one seems willing to turn on any others, so it seems time to let it go. Is there any movement anywhere that can make progress?
19 Jan 19 UTC Spring, 2001: I voted when Germany suggested long time ago!
as I see, there's 2 fights : Poland against Russia, and Italy against Egypt!
Poland has always fight with Russia as I remember, and Italy fight Egypt after Egypt betrayed him!
Germany and me are just helping them while there's no draw!
19 Jan 19 UTC Spring, 2001: No, Poland and I have been fighting since he took Bielorussia from me and I retreated into Lithuania... had I just disbanded the unit, Poland and I would've been pals. I made the wrong decision.
19 Jan 19 UTC Spring, 2001: I have had my draw vote in for a while as well. Can we have peace until the draw Egypt?
19 Jan 19 UTC Spring, 2001: Yes, i would like to stop fighting with you. I am new Egypt. Looks like some of you didn't get it that I took over Egypt.

I won't move against you Italy!
20 Jan 19 UTC Spring, 2001: I did see Egypt CD a few turns back.
20 Jan 19 UTC Autumn, 2001: Poland. I got an army into Donetsk. What do you want it to do?
20 Jan 19 UTC Autumn, 2001: @Germany i can Support A Don to Kha with A vol.
20 Jan 19 UTC Autumn, 2001: Ok, will do.
21 Jan 19 UTC Autumn, 2001: I concur with Egypt’s suggestion
21 Jan 19 UTC Autumn, 2001: well, I think the only reason for someone to not vote is that he wants to see Russia dead!
I'll assume after that he'll vote!
21 Jan 19 UTC Autumn, 2001: Yeah... thanks y’all...
21 Jan 19 UTC Autumn, 2001: I'll make things easy though
21 Jan 19 UTC Autumn, 2001: I`m Sorry for you Russia.
If you all push "Ready" we can end this way faster.
22 Jan 19 UTC Spring, 2002: Egypt, I’m repeating my last move
23 Jan 19 UTC Autumn, 2002: Good game
23 Jan 19 UTC Autumn, 2002: are we going to draw after this autumn?
23 Jan 19 UTC Autumn, 2002: I hope so. If the last one of us put his draw vote...
24 Jan 19 UTC Autumn, 2002: I am withdrawing my draw vote. I am sick of opportunistic Egypt.
24 Jan 19 UTC Autumn, 2002: Really?
24 Jan 19 UTC Autumn, 2002: sooooo, now we'll draw without Egypt!
I'd like what Italy thinks!
anyways I'll hold the rest of the game (I won't fight Germany or Italy) or I'll move south with Italy to supp him as I said it before!
24 Jan 19 UTC Autumn, 2002: I think there was no need for you @Egypt to attack Germany...
24 Jan 19 UTC Russia, I know. But I had a draw vote cast while you were still viable. But since the game wasn’t ending, I assumed we had to knock you out to finish. Now I just think Egypt has been difficult the whole time. Maybe I’ll get over it.
24 Jan 19 UTC I am sorry. I didn't think it makes a different when we draw like you said.

Did you cancel you draw vote now?

That makes no sense. If the last one voted draw now, you are the reason why we are still playing...

And again I would like to ask...
Who of you don't want to draw? There is no way to solo win this. For nobody.
So why don't you vote draw again (or check if you really voted draw) and we can finish this game.

I already voted draw years ago. I am not the reason why we are still playing. Think about it.

Best regards.
24 Jan 19 UTC And One more time. I apologise for that move, Germany. I had no evil intentions. It's a draw size scoring game and someone with 1 SC will get the same pot than someone with 25 SCs. I'm sorry.
24 Jan 19 UTC Finally! Good game, all.
24 Jan 19 UTC Good game.

Will we get the info who didn't want to draw before?
24 Jan 19 UTC good game!
25 Jan 19 UTC we'll never know Egypt! =\
gg to all, and I liked our alliance Germany and Italy! =)
25 Jan 19 UTC I didn’t want to draw with Russia still around
25 Jan 19 UTC Hmph.
25 Jan 19 UTC Understandable
