01 Feb 20 UTC Autumn, 1901: Have fun boys. i am out of this one.
02 Feb 20 UTC Autumn, 1901: ..
02 Feb 20 UTC Autumn, 1901: "I am loosing, lets leave year 1"
02 Feb 20 UTC Autumn, 1901: Boo
Should we wait for a replacement? Is that a thing we can do?
03 Feb 20 UTC Spring, 1902: Spring, 1901: Greetings Russian Emperor, I have entered a truce with Austria and Italy until further notice, we would appreciate if we kept Prussia and Silesia as Neutral zones while your deal with the Balkans situation and we deal with the France/England situation
03 Feb 20 UTC Spring, 1902: I hope we can find peace between our countries as we both begin the infancy stage of European conquest. I am hopeful that we can leave Galicia unoccupied while moving toward the Balkans. I have not heard from Turkey yet, but I hope you and I can find a way to work together through the game. I've often seen great Russian/Austrian alliances that work much better than Austrian/Turkish ones, so I would prefer to ally with you over Turkey since nothing has happened in the game yet. What are your initial thoughts to what I've suggested? I would help you gain Rumania and hold it, and could potentially help you into Bulgaria as well to get 2 builds in the south within the first 2 years if you are agreeable.
03 Feb 20 UTC Spring, 1902: @all: Germany and Austria are not to be trusted in the least.
03 Feb 20 UTC Spring, 1902: First they came for Russia. Next they go for Turkey.
So like Woody Guthrie says: Take those fascists down :)
03 Feb 20 UTC Spring, 1902: oh and Italy is on it too i suppose:
Spring, 1901: I am mostly planning on teaming with Austria against Turkey. Unless you have something else in mind?
03 Feb 20 UTC Spring, 1902: Have you played this game before?
03 Feb 20 UTC Spring, 1902: Have you?
03 Feb 20 UTC Spring, 1902: How do you expect people to react when youre being a pushy dick from turn 1
03 Feb 20 UTC Spring, 1902: How do you expect people to react when youre being a pushy dick from turn 1
03 Feb 20 UTC Spring, 1902: Take a chill pill, queue for another game if you arent enjoying this one
03 Feb 20 UTC Spring, 1902: have fun finding an ally.
03 Feb 20 UTC Spring, 1902: Coming from a guy who got turned on by 3 people in the first turn
03 Feb 20 UTC Spring, 1902: Well i cannot prevent you and Turkey from acting against selfinterest. but i did prevent you both from getting anything out of it thus far.
Maybe people see some reason now and act accordingly.
06 Feb 20 UTC Spring, 1902: hello all, I am the new russia in the game
06 Feb 20 UTC Spring, 1902: Hey
06 Feb 20 UTC Spring, 1902: Wait it doesn't say a player has left..
06 Feb 20 UTC Spring, 1902: maybe I joined too quick after the last player left. you can see that I have 0 bet
12 Feb 20 UTC Autumn, 1902: 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.

14 Feb 20 UTC Autumn, 1902: Hi all, new UK here.
14 Feb 20 UTC Autumn, 1902: o/
14 Feb 20 UTC Autumn, 1902: Semms the situation sucks, so I will just try not to delay the game and if anyone wants to make a deal, feel free to reach out. I guess the only question is whether France or Germany get the island :)
18 Feb 20 UTC Spring, 1903: When you think the game can't get any more annoying after waiting for a new England for 2 weeks
07 Mar 20 UTC Go france, claim the solo win

12 Mar 20 UTC May i join the game?
12 Mar 20 UTC I’m going to vote draw everyone. I’ll play it out but to have one of 2 countries that have 10 SC go into civil disorder and a new person take over isn’t right. On a personal note I hate to see this happen cause France was very invested and on top of it with orders, so I hope nothings happened to them IRL that’s caused them to miss like this.
12 Mar 20 UTC As long as Austria stop attack me i am fine. We all see what such attack will lead to
12 Mar 20 UTC I see the same thing with Aus, I do not assume to replace the old person! I am searching for a good way to finish the game and everyone accepts it!
12 Mar 20 UTC Wake up Austria. France is winning solo
12 Mar 20 UTC No way :)). I am not expecting a solo win!
12 Mar 20 UTC Oh i agree. Turkey and england just draw up
12 Mar 20 UTC Done :)
13 Mar 20 UTC @ Eric1984: brother, why do you want to draw so fast :)).
13 Mar 20 UTC @ nguyenmt, thats because it is clear that you can win solo easily : )
13 Mar 20 UTC Not really, Recently i will not solo. It make no fun!
13 Mar 20 UTC Oh what is the fun you are looking for?
13 Mar 20 UTC Recently I just try to be a pleasure replacement. Who will try to finish the game as it should be!
13 Mar 20 UTC I will spend time to see the map as the original one.
13 Mar 20 UTC Mercyful and friendly nguyenmt!!!
