29 Jan 19 UTC Spring, 2000: [USA]:GLHF!
29 Jan 19 UTC Spring, 2000: [South-Africa]:Whoop whoop! Awesome. South Africa is open to comms! Post Apartheid....right!? ;)
30 Jan 19 UTC Autumn, 2000: [USA]:So many people missed the last phase...
30 Jan 19 UTC Autumn, 2000: [Brazil]:I’m both happy and sad about that. No one around me though.
30 Jan 19 UTC Autumn, 2000: [South-Africa]:Yikes
01 Feb 19 UTC Spring, 2001: [Western-Canada]:New Western Canada here. Soooo what’s going on?
01 Feb 19 UTC Spring, 2001: [Brazil]:Not much.
01 Feb 19 UTC Spring, 2001: [India]:The new Indian leader is much much better than the old one i've heard. for instance, I plan on moving some units this turn.
01 Feb 19 UTC Spring, 2001: [Brazil]:Ah. That sounds like a solid strategic plan.
06 Feb 19 UTC Spring, 2002: Moderator: (TrPrado): This game has been paused as part of an ongoing cheating investigation. Please do not draw, unpause, or cancel this game. Doing so may result in point deduction. Apologies for the inconvenience.
14 Feb 19 UTC Spring, 2002: Moderator: (TrPrado): The investigation is now complete. I'm going to unpause the game and reset the phase length.
14 Feb 19 UTC Autumn, 2002: [Near-East]:Awesome, I border 3 of them!....and so does/did Libya
14 Feb 19 UTC Autumn, 2002: [South-Africa]:Oh my goodness. Just happy to be back in play at this point.
14 Feb 19 UTC Autumn, 2002: [Europe]:Welcome all, I am the first replacement player of three as it seems. Good luck to you all.
15 Feb 19 UTC Autumn, 2002: [Russia]:Good day Comrades. This is Lenin. The tyranny of the Tsar is no more.
21 Feb 19 UTC Spring, 2004: [India]:Hey I’m selling my services. Whoever wants me to help them kill Near East message me and I’ll be your sworn soldier to the death.
21 Feb 19 UTC Spring, 2004: [Kenya]:Hi just joined hope to be of assistance to y'all
16 Mar 19 UTC Autumn, 2010: [South-Africa]:I'm for the draw when ya'll are. ;)
17 Mar 19 UTC [China]:Don't you want a draw Brazil?
17 Mar 19 UTC [Brazil]:To be honest, I hadn’t seen it. Why does everyone what to draw?
17 Mar 19 UTC [South-Africa]:Because it's going to take a long time to whittle anyone out (unless we all cooperate), and we expose ourselves if we try to whittle by ourselves.
17 Mar 19 UTC [Quebec]:Brazil looks quite exposed already.
17 Mar 19 UTC [South-Africa]:He does doesn't he? But I'm not interested in draw whittling now that Oz is gone.
17 Mar 19 UTC [Near-East]:Well I am not gonna stop the draw if y’all want it. (I’m an interloper in the game and have nothing to lose)
17 Mar 19 UTC [Europe]:^^
17 Mar 19 UTC [Russia]:C'mon Brazil just draw.
17 Mar 19 UTC [Brazil]:Alright, alright. Like I said, I had just noticed it. I was having fun.
17 Mar 19 UTC [Russia]:That was a tad tongue in cheek. I just don't like getting all those global messages from a game that's basically done.;)
18 Mar 19 UTC [Western-Canada]:Fun game. Well played. Thank you.
18 Mar 19 UTC [Europe]:I remember looking at Near-East on the joinable tab, thinking long and hard about whether to join as them, and clicked on it. But by then, Hauta had taken the position.

And a great job Hauta did! I really appreciated the partnership we had, and I was never worried after Russia's fall of a backstab. It just wasn't practical. I think it would've taken 3-5 years, but China would've fallen, but South-Africa was a totally different beast.
But everyone here deserved the draw, because everyone accomplished hegemony over a region, or worked together with a close ally to achieve that hegemony.
18 Mar 19 UTC [Near-East]:You were a great ally magnetic. I look forward to meeting you again in the future! China and SA, I enjoyed our back and forth. Y’all are tenacious!
18 Mar 19 UTC [Quebec]:Cheers all. Well played
18 Mar 19 UTC [South-Africa]:That was a fun game! Thanks all! I majorly messed up when I attacked both China and Brazil in the same year, hoping Europe and the Near East would be content with just leaving me as a neighbor. Luckily for me, things were smoothed over with China and Brazil, and a defense was thrown together to fend off Europe and N.East.
18 Mar 19 UTC [South-Africa]:I really enjoyed playing S.Africa too, because I live here.
18 Mar 19 UTC [China]:Thanks everyone for a fun game
