23 Aug 19 UTC Spring, 1906: @Italy: hang in there vs Turkey, he'll be gone by year end

@England: we can work together, don't block me from taking SEV
23 Aug 19 UTC Spring, 1906: France, I’m very keen to have that fleet stay far away. But it’s also going to take a year before it even has an impact so maybe I should just chill out and wait until it shows up in three IRL days. That’s how long it’s doing nothing. It would be faster to keep MAR open and just build a new fleet there after this year.
23 Aug 19 UTC Spring, 1906: Sev is yours Austria. I hear Turkey has great crab claws. Perhaps you should try some.
23 Aug 19 UTC Spring, 1906: Ahh you tricked me. I thought you wanted the germans to survive. Turns out you wanted them all to yourself.
23 Aug 19 UTC Autumn, 1906: You should get revenge by moving to Sevastopol in the autumn!
23 Aug 19 UTC Autumn, 1906: "Ahh you tricked me. I thought you wanted the germans to survive."
Sounds like you tricked yourself.

"Turns out you wanted them all to yourself."
Not sure how you worked that out.
23 Aug 19 UTC Autumn, 1906: I want survive! If anyone help me I will be his servant
23 Aug 19 UTC Autumn, 1906: @France I have ruhr supported for Munich.

However @Austria I would be open to you joining our coalition.
23 Aug 19 UTC Autumn, 1906: Autumn, 1905: Austria, I do what I can for Germany. -- I thoulght that meant you were going to support them my mistake. I often trick myself.
24 Aug 19 UTC Autumn, 1906: Help...
24 Aug 19 UTC Autumn, 1906: @England, I see your reasoning, I might even have been thinking of supporting him at the time. But, when push came to shove, I took the opportunity.
24 Aug 19 UTC Spring, 1907: GG
24 Aug 19 UTC Spring, 1907: gg Turkey
24 Aug 19 UTC Spring, 1907: (and Germany)
24 Aug 19 UTC Spring, 1907: @France, what did I say about the fleet doing nothing for a year? And now GoL has gone and respawned in Brest? Can't wait for it to waste another year coming down to fight me. But once Russia's dead and WAR is in Austrian hands, maybe we'll just draw :| so it might super not matter :D
26 Aug 19 UTC -------------
In the channel....again, England? And pulling back the fleet from Barents?
26 Aug 19 UTC Fleet moving to denmark and I need to fill at Nsea
26 Aug 19 UTC NTH could have moved to DEN last turn. So you could have filled NTH from LON last turn. But now it's in the channel.
26 Aug 19 UTC Well im moving out this turn
26 Aug 19 UTC Im not the most elegant player of this game obviously
26 Aug 19 UTC ...now I feel bad for bothering you about it :/
26 Aug 19 UTC @Italy - if F GRE can be of use, let me know
26 Aug 19 UTC I appreciate the offer, but I'm not sure I can think of anything atm. I guess just chill in GRE? I'm moving CON to SMY this turn. If in the future you want me to displace it so that you can disband it, just let me know.
26 Aug 19 UTC Fair enough.

My thoughts were move to AEG to help convoy A SMY home, if that is your intention.

Beyond that through CON (spring turn obviously) to provide support for SEV.

Otherwise, I will issue support ION.
26 Aug 19 UTC England can you support Munich with Berlin?
26 Aug 19 UTC What's wrong with BUR and KIE?
26 Aug 19 UTC Understood france. I see the issue.
26 Aug 19 UTC I don't see the issue? SPA has nothing to do except support MAR's hold? So BUR is free to support MUN.
26 Aug 19 UTC If you don't see it Im not going to tell you.
26 Aug 19 UTC Im not the most intelligent player of this game obviously
26 Aug 19 UTC so I wouldn't mind a hint
26 Aug 19 UTC Now I feel bad.
26 Aug 19 UTC we have a winner :)
26 Aug 19 UTC bah, I got outplayed, I couldn't risk you double supporting TUN into Western Med with MAO and NAF and having it cancel out with me double supporting into TUN with TYN and ION :/ nice call France

and rip Russia
26 Aug 19 UTC and so the stalemate developed ...
26 Aug 19 UTC … shall we call it now, or dance around for a bit?
26 Aug 19 UTC Well you could turn on Italy and make it a 3way ;).
26 Aug 19 UTC yeah Austria it's pretty viable for you to turn on me, but then I'll just throw to France and suicide into you :) also we've been such good friendsssssssss
26 Aug 19 UTC Iv already voted.
26 Aug 19 UTC @Italy - I have no intention of turning on you
26 Aug 19 UTC I have voted too, over to France ...
26 Aug 19 UTC Good game all!
26 Aug 19 UTC Good game!
26 Aug 19 UTC Good game guys, and nice to see that we had no NMRs.
26 Aug 19 UTC Gg all! Oh and Austria, my bad, I had night mode on my screen for my computer so it looked like you had sent the message about turning on me >.< in the light of day, now I can see the truth
28 Aug 19 UTC Italy if burgundy had not supported Marseilles the fleet you had in west med could have cut spain's support. Then lyon could have supported piedmont to Marseilles.
28 Aug 19 UTC Oh yeah sorry England, I was feigning ignorance on that one, haha sorry >.<
28 Aug 19 UTC Lol you win again
28 Aug 19 UTC *dies of embarrassment*
28 Aug 19 UTC Ill get you next time!! *shakes fist
