Remember to finalize your orders if you don't want to wait, so the game isn't held up unnecessarily!
10 Feb 20 UTC Spring, 1903: New France hear
12 Feb 20 UTC Autumn, 1903: Turns out Austria does pretty well if Russia does nothing!
12 Feb 20 UTC Autumn, 1903: Turns out that only Russia is to blame for German problems. Not Turkey. Or Italy.

08 Mar 20 UTC Autumn, 1910: Hello All,

After what appears to be about 3 to 4 turns of what appears to me to be little progress, I find it necessary to write what you might call the "State of the Austria" address.

Given the current state of affairs, I am quite suprised at the utter lack of cohesion in working towards an efficient draw. I do not believe I can solo, for it appears everyone thinks me to be the major threat, and without fleets I really can't expect to make any progress. Furthermore, England, given the current situation, cannot solo, since I hold Berlin and Munich.

However, from the complete silence of England, I fear  an English solo victory. Consider that I am not even the board leader: I have 12 centers to England's 13. Furthermore, Marseilles and St. Petersburg are England's whenever he/she chooses to take them. Effectively, England is only Tunis, Berlin, and Munich away from the solo win.

Because of what appears to be a coordinated attack on me, my border with England is now collapsing. I will almost certainly lose Berlin and Munich within the next few turns. It is even possible England may take Warsaw or Moscow. The attack by Turkey means I can't divert units north to defend those centers.

What all of this means is that Tunis is realistically our only hope to prevent an English solo. To Italy: you must divert fleets westwards this turn if we are to have any hope of preventing an English solo. I am willing to pull out of Venice to allow you to make this happen.

I hope that this long message was not too inconvient for you all to read. However, I implore you to consider what I have said carefully; the outcome of the game may depend on it.
08 Mar 20 UTC Autumn, 1910: You just didn't get me, Austria. I'm still not going to spell it out to you. Use that smart noggin' of yours.
09 Mar 20 UTC Autumn, 1910: I have voted draw so that's fine with me
09 Mar 20 UTC Autumn, 1910: I am not at 10, england is now at 14. Is this what people actually want?
09 Mar 20 UTC Autumn, 1910: *now
09 Mar 20 UTC Autumn, 1910: A 6 way draw should be unthinkable, but since everyone seems to not care about England soloing I'm voting draw.
09 Mar 20 UTC Autumn, 1910: I have also voted draw. I am nowhere near England anyway.
09 Mar 20 UTC Autumn, 1910: I am not interested in who can solo as long as I can hold Munich.
09 Mar 20 UTC Autumn, 1910: You wont be holding Munich for long...
09 Mar 20 UTC Autumn, 1910: Turkey, attacking my border, so that I have less rescources to fight the English, isn't helping.
09 Mar 20 UTC Autumn, 1910: The game is lost amyway though.
09 Mar 20 UTC Autumn, 1910: *anyway
09 Mar 20 UTC Autumn, 1910: Our only hope is Italy holding on to Tunis for dear life.
09 Mar 20 UTC Autumn, 1910: Austria, I can see your point, but there is no one else within reach whom I can fight.
10 Mar 20 UTC Autumn, 1910: Have you considered not doing anything?
10 Mar 20 UTC Autumn, 1910: Even better, you could send a fleet into the Med to help defend Tunis
10 Mar 20 UTC Autumn, 1910: Diplomacy is not inherently about "fighting," it's about survival, and in this case survival nesscitates cooperation.
10 Mar 20 UTC Autumn, 1910: You where not very helpful in the early stages of the game, like when you tork Bul in Spring 1902 in sheer greed. I do not care much who wins. If you want something from me, you need to offer something. Like Bul or Sev. You would lose an SC but it would allow you to concentrate your resources North/West.
11 Mar 20 UTC Spring, 1911: I am offering you a share of the points. If England wins, you lose. If England doesnt win, you'll get a share of the draw.
11 Mar 20 UTC Spring, 1911: Yes, I ger that :)
11 Mar 20 UTC Spring, 1911: Get

17 Mar 20 UTC Autumn, 1912: Russia, why aren't you voting draw?
17 Mar 20 UTC Autumn, 1912: New England here.
17 Mar 20 UTC Autumn, 1912: Hello!
17 Mar 20 UTC Autumn, 1912: Some of us are ready for a draw.
22 Mar 20 UTC I am curious why England doesn't try to solo.
22 Mar 20 UTC Didn't feel like it and left Berlin open
Also waiting for a different game to start up and didn't want to play two games at once.
22 Mar 20 UTC GG!
