Game drawn
25 Mar 20 UTC Autumn, 2008: Arkansas looks good this time of year
25 Mar 20 UTC Autumn, 2008: Maybe I'll meet the Clintons! A solid enough place to spend my last 6 months.
26 Mar 20 UTC Autumn, 2008: Good game everyone. A shame Mexico couldn't put our differences aside and work together, thereby costing both of us our lives. I'd love to see Cuba and co pull off an upset against the BC/Heartland juggernaut.
26 Mar 20 UTC Autumn, 2008: You mean the Cali/Heartland juggernaut?
26 Mar 20 UTC Autumn, 2008: ohh yup that's Cali. I think in all the other games I've played on this map Cali has done terribly so I just assumed
26 Mar 20 UTC Autumn, 2008: I used to think Cuba was a terrible faction, but I've seen it do well in almost every Empire game I've played.
26 Mar 20 UTC Autumn, 2008: I think it's because Florida almost always goes for the easy triple build with Georgia, North Carolina, and Tennessee and never bothers Cuba
26 Mar 20 UTC Autumn, 2008: First time I played this map was with Cuba and I made the mistake of allying with Peru
26 Mar 20 UTC Autumn, 2008: If you attack Peru immediately and win you're gonna do well
26 Mar 20 UTC Autumn, 2008: The thing that makes Texas potentially the weakest faction is that they need to hold west coast SCs without being able to build a west coast navy
26 Mar 20 UTC Autumn, 2008: The only way an alliance with Peru works is if you get them to cede you Venezuela in year 2
26 Mar 20 UTC Autumn, 2008: But Peru and Cuba are almost axiomatic enemies
27 Mar 20 UTC Autumn, 2008: Peru has the best starting spot without a question. Agree with everything you’re saying @cuba
27 Mar 20 UTC Autumn, 2008: Peru does very well in gunboat, I haven't seen them do great in traditional games though because they don't really have natural allies
28 Mar 20 UTC Autumn, 2008: 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.

01 Apr 20 UTC Autumn, 2009: Dear governors of the American states, here is the state of New York, I wanted to annuccano that I am the new leader of this nation, I wanted to wish everyone a good continuation of the game

Remember to finalize your orders if you don't want to wait, so the game isn't held up unnecessarily!
15 Apr 20 UTC Spring, 2012: Hi folks

new NYC here
18 Apr 20 UTC Autumn, 2012: And there it is.
23 Apr 20 UTC Autumn, 2013: To all : if you stop attacking me and just focus on killing Heartlands, then i'll draw. If you progress against me (NY) i'll throw the game to Cuba. We can't work to a draw when i face all other players. Or we draw now but it is sad that Heartlands is part of the draw
23 Apr 20 UTC Autumn, 2013: sorry heartland but that makes sense to me
23 Apr 20 UTC Autumn, 2013: i promised heartland i'd stop attacking him, and so i shall.

i also told him i could make no promises about my allies.
23 Apr 20 UTC Autumn, 2013: That is very true.
24 Apr 20 UTC Autumn, 2013: Looks like I'm done for...
25 Apr 20 UTC Spring, 2014: because florida has decided to attack me and not help drive towards the draw....

cali, im all yours to help solo

idiocy from florida
27 Apr 20 UTC Autumn, 2014: I may be wrong, But I am not an idiot.
27 Apr 20 UTC Autumn, 2014: i mean, if cali would just play nice
27 Apr 20 UTC Autumn, 2014: or we could just 4-way draw once heartland is gone. (sorry man)
27 Apr 20 UTC Autumn, 2014: What do you mean play nice ? Who is sending so many fleets my way, who is so close to my home centers. All i do is defending myself against you. I am poor old Cali...
27 Apr 20 UTC Autumn, 2014: the entire time i've only insisted on parity of forces. you had 2 fleets and i had 1. you have 3 fleets and i had 2. so i sent fleets to establish parity. then you tried to break through the pacific.
27 Apr 20 UTC Autumn, 2014: anyways, i'd be fine with a 4-way.
27 Apr 20 UTC Autumn, 2014: I'd be fine with a draw without you haha, not sure it is possible though ;)
27 Apr 20 UTC Autumn, 2014: :D
27 Apr 20 UTC Autumn, 2014: my draw vote is in....

will keep going as long as i can with these knives in my back

15 May 20 UTC Autumn, 2017: 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.
21 May 20 UTC Calling for a draw, I think it is enough for us!
21 May 20 UTC Sadly i agree... ;)
21 May 20 UTC Thanks all for the good game ! :)
Was there a way for me to win solo ? (I mean except for rushing towards Gulf of Mexico earlier ?)
22 May 20 UTC This map is different with all other map I have played. I believe that there is some chance there, but it also depends on mistake.
22 May 20 UTC what a joke
22 May 20 UTC What is your idea? New york?
