10 Nov 19 UTC Autumn, 1904: Maaan
10 Nov 19 UTC Autumn, 1904: Hello everybody, new Germany here. it's midnight now, my local time, so I'll be talking to you all tomorrow in the morning. Thanks for your patience
11 Nov 19 UTC Autumn, 1904: Moderator: (Aurelin): Unpaused. Have fun!
11 Nov 19 UTC Spring, 1905: Thanks for filling in Germany!
13 Nov 19 UTC Autumn, 1905: Alright everyone, time to get our shit together and go into full solo prevention mode!

I am pulling entirely away from Italy, or so help me I wish for all of you to smite me first in any game we ever meet again, tournament or not!

Let's work together and get at least some middling points. We can squabble in the last few years ;) remember: solos aren't earned, they're everyone else's fault!
13 Nov 19 UTC Autumn, 1905: This is like a broken record. You attacked me in the past, then promised peace so I moved defensively as a precaution to see if you meant it and yet you attacked again. I have 0 reason to believe you.

I’d love to help you all stop a Russian solo but I hope you’ll understand if survival is my first priority.
14 Nov 19 UTC Autumn, 1905: "everyone else's fault"...!
14 Nov 19 UTC Autumn, 1905: I have fixed the record player! Now let us all join forces :)
17 Nov 19 UTC Autumn, 1906: @France just gonna reply to your private message, asking where I want here, here:

Your moves, especially in the south, do not suggest you are here to help. If you take Venice and I will count the game as officially lost, and will keep all the units closest to you out of spite to make sure of it. You will get zero points if Russia solos, and you cannot stop him from soloing by taking Italy and my centres, as it only moves units away from Russia.

@Italy I hope you're onboard the spite train!
18 Nov 19 UTC Autumn, 1906: Spite is my middle name
18 Nov 19 UTC Autumn, 1906: @Austria: I told Italy I was moving there to help him years ago. He refused my help so I stayed in MAO. This time I asked again, but Italy was helping Russia so I decided to screw his offer for no help received and mentioned that he would be getting my help whether he likes it or not. I have repeatedly mentioned to him that I have no intention of attacking him, and much less do I have intention of attacking you.

However Italy's moves indicate to me that Italy wants to throw this game and I sure as hell won't let him. If he cooperates I guaranteed I would never take any of his SCs. If he does not cooperate and decides to throw toward Russia I will fight him and try to stop Russia myself.

Is that clear enough for you?
18 Nov 19 UTC Autumn, 1906: France, did you really need to send two fleets to "help" Italy? He's more than capable of keeping me out of Aegean by his own power.
18 Nov 19 UTC Autumn, 1906: Yeah, I have no intention of throwing any games. I’m not a great player but I’ll fight to the last SC. If you’ll check my most recent game you’ll see that I did just that.

I’m happy to accept your help but I need more communication from you if that’s the case. Sailing on in, supporting yourself in, not coordinating with me on moves toward Russia: that all raises red flags for me.
18 Nov 19 UTC Autumn, 1906: I should have emphasized "two" in my previous post. One maybe would have been understandable.
19 Nov 19 UTC Autumn, 1906: Guess time will tell. Sevastopol was always a French enclave!
19 Nov 19 UTC Autumn, 1906: @Russia I was sending only one to help and asked Italy to move accordingly. He started coming west, so I sent a second fleet
19 Nov 19 UTC Autumn, 1906: A bounce would have covered western med. A support in wasn’t necessary
19 Nov 19 UTC Autumn, 1906: It was necessary, you were moving West and a bounce does nothing. If you moved east it would not had been necessary.
19 Nov 19 UTC Autumn, 1906: In Spring 06, Italy moved one fleet East, one West, and one neutrally.
20 Nov 19 UTC Autumn, 1906: An agreed bounce with you is not a move east
21 Nov 19 UTC Spring, 1907: An agreed bounce doesn’t negate the fact that it’s a move east. It’s still tying up a unit.
22 Nov 19 UTC Autumn, 1907: Give up Russia, I have you surrounded!
22 Nov 19 UTC Autumn, 1907: You better listen to him! He’s crazy enough to do it!
24 Nov 19 UTC Autumn, 1908: We have a rogue Italy! Russia better cover St Petersburg!
25 Nov 19 UTC Autumn, 1908: GameMaster: Game was extended due to at least 1 member failing to enter orders and having an excused missed turn available. This has un-readied all orders.
28 Nov 19 UTC Spring, 1910: Sorry guys, I know Russia is in solo territory now, but I cannot bring myself to draw out the turns to run down the clock, as that's what's happening to me in another game! He gets his solo chance! Gotta show that teamwork now more than ever!!!
28 Nov 19 UTC Spring, 1910: It’s cool. This is the last year anyway
29 Nov 19 UTC Spring, 1910: LOL I have no chance
29 Nov 19 UTC Spring, 1910: Fair enough, good luck in your other game jimjam
29 Nov 19 UTC Spring, 1910: you can target 5 new SCs this turn. I wouldn't say that is no chance
29 Nov 19 UTC Spring, 1910: I might be able to get to 18 if you all retreat units to the West. Let's make it happen!
29 Nov 19 UTC Spring, 1910: Assuming there'll be another turn! ;) France is the only one with a move, not locked in, with 23 hours to go.
29 Nov 19 UTC Spring, 1910: France, be a good sport! Booooo!
30 Nov 19 UTC Spring, 1910: Boooooo!
01 Dec 19 UTC Just because you don't need to coordinate moves, doesn't mean the rest of us are in the same position
