09 Mar 20 UTC Autumn, 1906: The Russians soldier on!
09 Mar 20 UTC Autumn, 1906: The Welsh are rooting for you, Russia.
09 Mar 20 UTC Autumn, 1906: by royal french decree, Wales has been declared a sovereign nation, free from the tyranny of the United Kingdom, and shall remain so as long as the french army remains to defend it
09 Mar 20 UTC Autumn, 1906: We should vote for a 2-way draw between Wales and Serbia.

10 Mar 20 UTC Spring, 1907: New Turkey
13 Mar 20 UTC Autumn, 1908: Would you guys be up for a 4-way draw?
13 Mar 20 UTC Autumn, 1908: And leave the Turks on the board?
13 Mar 20 UTC Autumn, 1908: (no offense of course)
13 Mar 20 UTC Autumn, 1908: Germany gonna solo.
13 Mar 20 UTC Spring, 1909: vote is in
13 Mar 20 UTC Spring, 1909: I’m in
13 Mar 20 UTC Spring, 1909: I agree I think we should just draw
13 Mar 20 UTC Well done everyone! Banded together to stop the solo. Not sure if I made a move too soon or what. But I wasn't sure when I'd be able to make such a jump like that.
13 Mar 20 UTC Good game to all of you!
13 Mar 20 UTC I'm frankly not convinced you couldn't've kept making gains against me
13 Mar 20 UTC but also I was always playing catch up with you so I was always pretty wary of a move like that as the weaker partner in the alliance
14 Mar 20 UTC I'm not either, France. I MIGHT have been able to gain ground. But it was unlikely I could stay 100% safe in the east AND take 2 centers from you. So I played it safe since it is SoS scoring. I didn't see an easy path to more centers and thought I might lose some.

Yeah, that's the typical path to a solo. Keep close allies JUST a bit below you (but not so much that they stab you) so that you have the upperhand in an eventual or possible stab.
