20 Feb 20 UTC Autumn, 1901: GameMaster: I play chess was banned: multi. The time until the next phase has been extended by one phase length to give an opportunity to replace the player.
Remember to finalize your orders if you don't want to wait, so the game isn't held up unnecessarily!
24 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.
25 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.
25 Feb 20 UTC Autumn, 1902: new Germany
28 Feb 20 UTC Spring, 1903: 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 Feb 20 UTC Spring, 1903: Funny, Austria claws his way back to not being wiped out, but then misses the turn.
01 Mar 20 UTC Autumn, 1903: I’ve never played with such an emotional immature player such as England.
01 Mar 20 UTC Autumn, 1903: Italy, apparently England has some long sob story grudge against you that he tried to sell me on after trying to stab me.
01 Mar 20 UTC Autumn, 1903: Funny, you sound like you're whining to me right here.
01 Mar 20 UTC Autumn, 1903: Don’t waste my time with your grudge from 2 games ago. I’m here to play the game straight. Take your baggage up with your therapist.
01 Mar 20 UTC Autumn, 1903: What kinda child says, “do as I say or else I’ll mute you and attack you” lol
01 Mar 20 UTC Autumn, 1903: Hahaha, your a crazy guy.
01 Mar 20 UTC Autumn, 1903: you're*
01 Mar 20 UTC Autumn, 1903: Probably, I mean we’ve all decided to spend our free time playing this online strategy game (likely in person as well with friends), so none of us are “normal” by any means
01 Mar 20 UTC Autumn, 1903: THAT, my friend, we can agree. Normal is boring anyway.
01 Mar 20 UTC Autumn, 1903: Ok, lets move past this and play! It’s a Sunday, come on folks!
05 Mar 20 UTC Autumn, 1904: No bounce in Sweden? I sent you three messages!
05 Mar 20 UTC Autumn, 1904: Who are you talking to?
07 Mar 20 UTC Spring, 1905: 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.
08 Mar 20 UTC Spring, 1905: 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.
09 Mar 20 UTC Spring, 1905: new Russia
14 Mar 20 UTC Autumn, 1906: Hey Italy you know you can ready your orders so it speeds up the game right?
16 Mar 20 UTC Autumn, 1906: 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.
19 Mar 20 UTC Autumn, 1907: 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.
19 Mar 20 UTC Autumn, 1907: Shit why did I take over Austria, I’m just going to get a loss on my record :(
19 Mar 20 UTC Autumn, 1907: You earned a CD Takeover though, and good karma, IMO.

All things aside, the sportsmanship here could be better. When I'm getting my ass kicked, I still input orders and ready them as soon as I am sure that's what I want to do, i.e. as soon as possible.

If anyone has truly lost interest in the game, just get things over with quickly for everyone else still playing. I don't understand why you wouldn't input orders and choose to go into civil disorder. It looks bad. You only play when you win? You can never learn that way. I've learned way more over my poor showings than good ones.

And if you're too distracted by your other games, you may be playing too many games. Focus on the task at hand and learn.

Sorry, I'll get off my soapbox now.
19 Mar 20 UTC Autumn, 1907: Speaking of sportsmanship...who mutes people out of spite lol
19 Mar 20 UTC Autumn, 1907: Well I’ll just take one for team so that your game is delayed anymore than it has been already
19 Mar 20 UTC Autumn, 1907: Germany, that was a tactical mute, and it worked beautifully!
19 Mar 20 UTC Autumn, 1907: Thanks again, Austria! I appreciate it, and would love to play a proper game from the beginning with you for it.
19 Mar 20 UTC Autumn, 1907: no-message games are quite fun. takes the emotion out of things
19 Mar 20 UTC Spring, 1908: Good points Bark!
19 Mar 20 UTC Spring, 1908: Oh I’m not very good, I’ve only played a few games IRL I only made an account on the website because I had to self-isolate
19 Mar 20 UTC Autumn, 1908: Hahaha!

I love you guys. That's hilarious.
19 Mar 20 UTC Autumn, 1908: I'll join in too.
19 Mar 20 UTC Autumn, 1908: I'll keep checking on if the joke is no longer worth the lost time and ready last.

I don't know what you are doing for COVID-19, but I appreciate anything entertaining and will go along with however you all want. Hope you all are holding up.
20 Mar 20 UTC Autumn, 1908: Thank you for that comment. It is a bit stressful right now. But things, seem to be heading towards a new normal
20 Mar 20 UTC Autumn, 1908: Yeah I don’t know where you all live but I hope it’s on a path where it gets under control in your location. Here in Quebec authorities seems to be handling the situation very well and are ahead of the events!
20 Mar 20 UTC Autumn, 1908: And Turkey stabs for his solo!
21 Mar 20 UTC Spring, 1909: Should bobbytang-Germany fail to input orders, letting Germany go into civil disorder, I invite new Germany to unmute me and talk before inputting orders.

I'll talk about anything.

Should bobbytang-Germany unmute me to see this global message, I'll say this:

You greatly misplayed Autumn 1903. If you see weakness, exploit it. Don't shine a light on it.
21 Mar 20 UTC Spring, 1909: I knew that would compel you to move.
22 Mar 20 UTC Autumn, 1909: Good game, gentleman.
22 Mar 20 UTC Autumn, 1909: Good Game.
24 Mar 20 UTC Game over good game
