18 Oct 19 UTC Autumn, 1903: Please don’t have the turn not go through.
20 Oct 19 UTC Spring, 1904: I’ll support Ukraine into Moscow
20 Oct 19 UTC Spring, 1904: Damn homie, you’re not even gonna put it in private.
20 Oct 19 UTC Spring, 1904: That’s just evil
20 Oct 19 UTC Autumn, 1904: Well I can see that my time has come. So it is time for my death speech.
20 Oct 19 UTC Autumn, 1904: There was a time when country’s were kind
When their treaties were strong
And their words trustworthy.
There was a time when borders was fine
And the world was at war
And the war was still just starting
There was a time
Then it all went wrong
I dreamed a dream in times gone by
When borders were real and treaties worth keeping.
I dreamed, that alliances would never die
I dreamed that Italy would be trustworthy
Then I was young and uninformed.
And treaties were made and used and broken.
There was no reason to invade.
No borders crossed, no treaties broken.
But the Germans came in spring,
With their army’s soft as thunder
As they tour or land apart
As they turned our love to shame
They spent a few turns by my side
They filled my turns with endless fear
They took my friendship in their stride
But they where here when autumn came
And still I dream they’d leave from me
That they will leave my people here forever
But there are dreams that cannot be
And there are treaties that cannot stand here
I had a dream my game would be
So different from this hell I'm playing
So different now from what it is
Now diplomacy has killed the dream
I dreamed.
Screw you all.
I’m done with the crappy game forever.
20 Oct 19 UTC Autumn, 1904: Well shoot

24 Oct 19 UTC Autumn, 1905: If anyone could find a replacement, it would be nice, though, it is a failing position so it might not be easy.

31 Oct 19 UTC Autumn, 1907: May the land flow with German and Italian blood as my warnings become prophetic
There is a red, winged beast left unclipped, spoiled by negligence.
01 Nov 19 UTC Spring, 1908: I'm willing to draw before Austria solos ( ͠° ͟ʖ ͡°)
01 Nov 19 UTC Spring, 1908: He's over the stalemate line and can easily take Italy as it stands.
02 Nov 19 UTC Spring, 1908: I trust the axis of Germany, Austria, and Italy twists in this immaculate clock of Europe with grace, precision, and the trust that it may continue turning. You, England, are a squeaking cog in need of replacing... Goodbye.
02 Nov 19 UTC Spring, 1908: Great. Now I feel like I have to say something dramatic on the subject of eliminating England...

I have never been a fan of tea
Nor do I approve of your vanity
Spare us of all your profanity
So that we might keep our sanity
You played well, but time does tell
Your empire fell while our glory swells
The triad is final, so let that be that
Peace will rise at the drop of your hat
Leave the strategy and planning
To the three champions standing
Erased with haste, let there be no lingering taste nor misplaced states of yours pasted on this pure game board.
The apple never falls far from the tree
Your fleets never sailed far from safety
It's plain to see, to Italy, Austria, and me
That your game is over, and that's the tea

Don't let the door hit you on the way out, my friend.
02 Nov 19 UTC Autumn, 1908: As the sun sets on the imperialist dreams of England, the free peoples of Italy, Germany, and Austria-Hungary rejoice.

Even as war ravaged much of the continent, the provinces of these three stalwart allies went untouched (except for one unfortunate Russian incursion into Galicia back in 1901, and we saw how that turned out). And now we can look forward to peace in our time.
02 Nov 19 UTC Autumn, 1908: Well said, friends. Now, from the look of things, we should be ready for a draw in roughly 3-4 turns. With that out of the way, I wish to thank you two for your loyalty to our cause and trust in the plans set forth in the beginning of this long war. Without the cooperation we see now, the map would look much different. Well done boys/girls/others, well done indeed
02 Nov 19 UTC Autumn, 1908: So if Austria is so pure of heart. Why are fleets moving west? Why are armies advancing north? Why is it that if I simply tap Norwegian Sea, Norway will be gone? Austria is no friend. We all get 14 now or we all lose 10 in 2 years while Austria gets all the spoils.
02 Nov 19 UTC Autumn, 1908: 18*
05 Nov 19 UTC Spring, 1910: And so the sun sets on the British Empire.
05 Nov 19 UTC Spring, 1910: For us, the storm has passed... the war is over. But let us never forget those who journeyed into the howling dark and did not return. For their decision required courage beyond measure; sacrifice, and unshakable conviction that their fight... our fight, was elsewhere. As we start to rebuild, this hillside will remain barren, a memorial to heroes fallen. They ennobled all of us, and they shall not be forgotten.
05 Nov 19 UTC Autumn, 1910: But... Austria could solo! You don’t know what you’re doing! Umm.. look at him..

He’s just standing there... menacingly!
05 Nov 19 UTC Autumn, 1910: Y'all hear something?
05 Nov 19 UTC Autumn, 1910: *Raises one eyebrow menacingly*
*Twirls mustache menacingly*
*Wonders if his units can spell "menacingly" using Support arrows*
05 Nov 19 UTC Autumn, 1910: Well boys, I suppose by next turn. We shall call it a draw. Well played to all of you, victors and fallen alike.
05 Nov 19 UTC Autumn, 1910: DAMN IT ENGLAND, JUST DIE ALREADY!
05 Nov 19 UTC Autumn, 1910: b r u h
06 Nov 19 UTC Spring, 1911: OK, it's next turn. Time for draw.
06 Nov 19 UTC Spring, 1911: Valiant effort, England, but an effort put towards a prolonged defeat. Well played, sir.
06 Nov 19 UTC Spring, 1911: Valiant effort, England, but an effort put towards a prolonged defeat. Well played, sir.
06 Nov 19 UTC Spring, 1911: Do we still want to convoy a unit from Syria to St. Petersburg just for the fun of it?
06 Nov 19 UTC Spring, 1911: Yes. You will need my fleet to do that. Wink, wink.
06 Nov 19 UTC Spring, 1911: Nah, I've got an order for a fleet to be shipped to Kiel directly from Jeff Bezos' penthouse. It should arrive once I take Liverpool.
06 Nov 19 UTC Spring, 1911: Honestly, from the look of dear ally Austria, the security risk for all joining parties would be, well, risky.
06 Nov 19 UTC Spring, 1911: Geez, Italy, it's about time you garrisoned Tunis. It had been tempting me for so long.
06 Nov 19 UTC Spring, 1911: Yeah, it was getting a bit tense and I finally had the needed reinforcements, so I though, “eh, why not?”. Nonetheless, I suppose we are all ready for a draw?
06 Nov 19 UTC Autumn, 1911: Will PayPal $10 US dollars for Liverpool
06 Nov 19 UTC Autumn, 1911: Will Paypal $11 US dollars for Liverpool
07 Nov 19 UTC Boom.
07 Nov 19 UTC And thus ends the European conflict. Well done Ladies and Gentlemen! Gg
07 Nov 19 UTC GG everyone, a beautiful game!
07 Nov 19 UTC BUT WHAT IF HE STABS
07 Nov 19 UTC YOU NEED ME
07 Nov 19 UTC Ain't nobody getting through the Iron Curtain
08 Nov 19 UTC It was a very good game haha, I’m glad that we could have it and I’d be down to start another one if you all wanted to, we could fill it with bots if we didn’t have enough people, unless, of course, you all wanted to play a game for higher stakes.
08 Nov 19 UTC Hmmm... That sounds rather tempting
08 Nov 19 UTC I'd be up for that.
10 Nov 19 UTC Sounds good to me
