12 Jan 19 UTC Autumn, 1902: Who’s down for stopping a juggernaut?
12 Jan 19 UTC Autumn, 1902: Oh you finally realized? Perhaps if you would step out of my backgarden and stop attacking my centers, I could try that. Until then I can only focus on staying alive against your English attack.
12 Jan 19 UTC Autumn, 1902: My boi. You’re currently sitting next to one of my home centers as well. Stop being salty and work with me here. The absence of movement to the Black Sea was fishy but the actual support proves it, and France not being able to directly attack either jug power I felt that I wouldn’t seem genuine.

Seeing as that’s true through, I can fight off England if they continue to be angry rather than smart while the rest of you stop or attempt to stop the jug. I can offer some Med support.

12 Jan 19 UTC Autumn, 1902: >France enters the Channel and attempts to take London
>England retakes Channel as France goes around the back via Irish Sea
France: "Lol England what are you doing, why you going after me when there's a bigger threat?"

Are you serious hahaha
12 Jan 19 UTC Autumn, 1902: I mean yeah. There are three other countries that are not England that can work against you as well that I want to get ahold of. I’ve got no expectations for England but we’ll see. I’d be remiss if I didn’t try.
12 Jan 19 UTC Autumn, 1902: Thank you, Russia, for taking up my role and giving the answers I would give and any normal player would give. Thus far, it has been hard making France realize that.
13 Jan 19 UTC Autumn, 1902: Yeah I've been trying to tell Italy this since the start of the game, but the Generalisimo who still hasn't taken Tunis evidently thought it wasn't a good idea to stop the might of the east
13 Jan 19 UTC Autumn, 1902: 5h left : don't forget to enter orders whoever it is.
13 Jan 19 UTC Autumn, 1902: Me sorry. Real world stuff
13 Jan 19 UTC Autumn, 1902: Intriguing network of support holds in Austria there...
13 Jan 19 UTC Autumn, 1902: Yes indeed
29 Jan 19 UTC Autumn, 1904: Sorry for the NMR peeps, real world stuff. Back now
14 Feb 19 UTC Autumn, 1907: Gents, we are nearing a draw. Couple more left to go
14 Feb 19 UTC Autumn, 1907: Most of my moves will be hold until we decide to draw, so I will be readying up faster
15 Feb 19 UTC Autumn, 1907: aight, lets ready up so we can get this done with
16 Feb 19 UTC Autumn, 1907: Can we start readying up faster? This is almost over and dragging it out isn’t gonna do much.
18 Feb 19 UTC Autumn, 1907: It's not me
18 Feb 19 UTC Spring, 1908: Last turn it was me, but hadn't been online much. I always ready up when I can.
19 Feb 19 UTC Spring, 1908: hit that ready up
19 Feb 19 UTC Spring, 1908: Not me
21 Feb 19 UTC Spring, 1909: Damn you italy!! Lol
22 Feb 19 UTC Spring, 1909: Supporting your move into Rome from Tuscany, Germany.
22 Feb 19 UTC Autumn, 1909: Don't get any bad ideas france
22 Feb 19 UTC Autumn, 1909: This triple alliance has been great btw. Finally a triple alliance that works!
22 Feb 19 UTC Autumn, 1909: I ain’t, no way I’m making up 7 centers. Just wanted the map painted pretty and to be able to convoy out of clyde if I wanted to.
22 Feb 19 UTC Autumn, 1909: I like the idea of a three navy convoy just for kicks
22 Feb 19 UTC Autumn, 1909: Yes, well played all. Enjoyed that.
Cheers

22 Feb 19 UTC GG Gentleman
22 Feb 19 UTC Or if we want to be a little crazy for the end of the game, we can try to convoy a german unit from st petes to syria, or a turkish unit from syria to st petes lol
22 Feb 19 UTC Frustrating game I’d say. But I always like the moment when everyone comes back from being anonymous. History of games help the game explain.
22 Feb 19 UTC It was a good one england. Just didn't work out in your favor this time. France's 1904 builds and threats stopped me from shooting for the solo
22 Feb 19 UTC I’d disagree but it’s fine.
23 Feb 19 UTC Trust me brother I was looking for the opportunity, but it wasn't there.
23 Feb 19 UTC I am not talking about your solo...:-)
23 Feb 19 UTC ?
23 Feb 19 UTC Germany could have gone for the solo in the final 3 turns if he wanted to. My whole frontier was unguarded at that point.
23 Feb 19 UTC That’s what I was expecting, I was pleasantly surprised that they didn’t.
23 Feb 19 UTC He told me time after time it was impossible (up to now). But it was France's stab in S05 that I consider as the most unpleasant experience I have ever been through in diplomacy. Particularly after 5y of bickering, and finally burying the hatchet.
23 Feb 19 UTC And in that respect it is nice to see who is who and to look at some history of games. That helps to explain.
23 Feb 19 UTC Yea turkey I looked at the board, had 10 units at the time and could have probably gotten-3 that turn. But if I did that you and France both would have attacked me and I was weak in the north. This would have giving the remaining surviving players a chance to stay alive by offering their services to help you guys. Best cas scenario I think I could have gotten maybe 16 total centers. Worst case scenario we draw with more than 3
23 Feb 19 UTC That's indeed how the game and going for a solo works I'd say.
23 Feb 19 UTC Like you say : it was your choice and an understandable one.
