24 Jan 19 UTC Spring, 1901: Appreciate it is late in the phase - but good luck everyone!
24 Jan 19 UTC Spring, 1901: Has anyone heard from Italy at all?

If they (or anyone I suppose) NMR do we continue until we get a joiner, or pause until we get a joiner?
24 Jan 19 UTC Spring, 1901: I have not heard from Italy. I would rather pause.
24 Jan 19 UTC Spring, 1901: I'm willing to support a pause as well. Pause vote in - but suspect it will need to be raised with the mods given how close we are to the end of the phase length.
24 Jan 19 UTC Autumn, 1901: Just voted to pause, didn’t see it before the end of the phase
24 Jan 19 UTC Autumn, 1901: I’m voting to pause, but I’m not sure it will do anything anyway cuz everyone has to pause.
24 Jan 19 UTC Autumn, 1901: My vote's with Pause
24 Jan 19 UTC Autumn, 1901: I've sent an email to the site mods asking for a pause, let's see if that materializes
24 Jan 19 UTC Autumn, 1901: Moderator: (Claesar): Game paused to prevent an NMR. I'll email Italy to see whether they intend to enter orders, though that seems a formality here.
24 Jan 19 UTC Autumn, 1901: Moderator: (Claesar): Actually, I take that back. I think Italy will return.
25 Jan 19 UTC Autumn, 1901: Moderator: (Claesar): Unless they don't do so within a few hours.. I've emailed them a day ago.
26 Jan 19 UTC Autumn, 1901: sorry all i was travelling and missed the start but back and ready to play now
27 Jan 19 UTC Autumn, 1901: Moderator: (Claesar): Ah, forgot to remove you, but all is well I guess :-) Game unpaused.
06 Feb 19 UTC Autumn, 1903: We paused for Italy not being present, do we pause for France departing us?
06 Feb 19 UTC Autumn, 1903: Frances replacement is here and pondering on how to rebuild
06 Feb 19 UTC Autumn, 1903: Glad to see the Third Republic living up to it's name

welcome
20 Feb 19 UTC Spring, 1906: Thanks to replacement France - appreciate you picked up a position that was already in a mess.
20 Feb 19 UTC Spring, 1906: Yea, doing God's work France2
20 Feb 19 UTC Spring, 1906: As to everyone else, England is obviously going for a solo, and is well on his way there. I'm going to do whatever I can to stop him, but I'd appreciate and may need any help/cooperation you all are willing to give in furtherance of not losing the game yourselves.
20 Feb 19 UTC Spring, 1906: I’m not normally one for public chat arguments, but I would note it is a long way to 18 from 12, and our German/Italian friends are actually well matched to take me on in terms of size at 13 combined (and of course still occupying natural Austrian, Russian and Turkish centres)...
20 Feb 19 UTC Spring, 1906: I'm sure Germany would appreciate any help. Just as I would've when I asked him for help and got an attack in response.
21 Feb 19 UTC Spring, 1906: Not an unfair point comrade, though disappointing.

Italy and I may be well sized to oppose you but we are poorly positioned. You may have a ways yet to go, but whether you eat my SCs fast or slow, when you've finished your meal you will be in a position almost unassailable.
21 Feb 19 UTC Autumn, 1906: i propose a 5 way draw after austria is eliminated - england will try to get russia and turk to stab but if they do germany and i will let england win rather than be eliminated and allow a 3 way draw - so really up to rationality of turk and russia
21 Feb 19 UTC Autumn, 1906: I'm pretty confident our Russian and Turkish friends can think and make decisions for themselves - so I'm not going to try to lecture them on what is or is not rational ;)
But for the record, I'm on 12 at the moment, one of you is in Belgium and you are attacking St Petes. Threats to throw a solo to me are not particularly credible at this point.
22 Feb 19 UTC Autumn, 1906: Poor Austria, always the bridesmaid, never the bride
22 Feb 19 UTC Autumn, 1906: England already has St. P and Tunis, along with all of France in their possession. Without help he will take all or nearly all of my SCs. Either we work together to stop him now or he solos.

We need to get St. P and Tunis back into continental hands ASAP.
22 Feb 19 UTC Autumn, 1906: Or we won't be able to reach/hold a Stalemate line with England.
22 Feb 19 UTC Autumn, 1906: To state the obvious, the reason I have no hope of holding a stalemate line will be insufficient armies to hold in the middle. Holding the corners isn’t enough on its own!
22 Feb 19 UTC Autumn, 1906: especially when Germany can build fleets
23 Feb 19 UTC Spring, 1907: Et tu Russia ;)
23 Feb 19 UTC Spring, 1907: Sorry to see you go Austria - red blocks are a hard draw
07 Mar 19 UTC Brilliant Germany!
08 Mar 19 UTC Happy to have eked out a Survive! Wish we could've managed a draw but no one was willing to unit against England while it was still helpful to me or likely to prevent the solo.

Congrats to England!
08 Mar 19 UTC GG
08 Mar 19 UTC Well played eng
I thought Germany and I would hold you at one point but too hard to coordinate 4 countries to get a defense
08 Mar 19 UTC GGv
08 Mar 19 UTC Yep - good game all. This was a high quality, high press game and you have my complete respect for the continent wide defence that I also thought for a while looked like it was going to hold me.
12 Mar 19 UTC Great diplomat Napoleon. This was fun
