01 Mar 20 UTC Spring, 1901: I’m currently traveling so I may not be as responsive as I would like, but I’ll do my best to keep comms up
02 Mar 20 UTC Spring, 1901: oooops, i didn't realize the game had started
good luck everybody!
02 Mar 20 UTC Autumn, 1901: lol.....guess i'm it!
05 Mar 20 UTC Spring, 1902: Cheerio! It seems strange to wait 24 hours for two Armies to retreat off the board.
05 Mar 20 UTC Spring, 1902: Yeah thats a big flaw with web dip.. it gives retreat turns even if there arent actually any choices being made.. which is unfortunate..
09 Mar 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.
09 Mar 20 UTC Spring, 1903: Disappointing

16 Mar 20 UTC Spring, 1904: Big sigh
22 Mar 20 UTC Autumn, 1905: Cheerio! I am relieved to see that I still control Iceland. I wonder if the BEF can swim there?
24 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.
24 Mar 20 UTC Autumn, 1906: Cheerio! Still wasn't me.
26 Mar 20 UTC Autumn, 1906: Cheerio! I find it interesting that webdip gives folks time to retreat, even wgen there is no option but off the board, yet I don't get to waive my build.
27 Mar 20 UTC Spring, 1907: Hey everyone,

I'm writing this because I think in no uncertain terms that this game is going to end in a French solo. I'm mostly writing this to inform Austria/Russia as I've already spoken in private with Germany, Italy, and England about it. England has been working with me since 1905 to help me cross the finish line. I recently reached out to both I/G in an attempt to bring them on board to help end this game as quickly as we possibly can. Although Italy is not going to directly help me into Venice, he is not going to make any efforts to stop the as indicated by his builds. I've also request that Germany disband Denmark to make it easier for me to scoop up the remaining SC's I need to end the game.

I'm personally itching to get seated into a new game, and redirect my focus there. I know that England feels the same, and I'm sure that I/G would like to as well. This turn I am capable of taking Sweden, Rome, and Port unopposed. Den/Kiel are strong contenders to fall under French control as well, and Liverpool is up for grabs from England once the solo is clear-cut. In the ideal scenario I scoop these 6 SC's, the game ends in 1907, and we can all move on to the next one.

If you feel as though my analysis is wrong then of course I would encourage you to fight back, but it is in the interest of EGI for the game to end in a French solo. Concentrating the score onto one player grants an easier entry point into the final game as there are less possible contenders fighting for that spot (1 as opposed to 2). Not only that, but the time to do so was in 1905 and 1906. Rallying together now would only delay the inevitable.

Austria, this is obviously not the desired result, but I've already crossed stalemate lines in the Med and in the middle. I don't believe there is a moveset that allows you to seize control of the Med while also stalemating me in Berlin. There is simply not enough time to do so. I implore you to find it if you can, but in the interest of everyone left in the game let's move on and do our best in the next one :)

Best,
France
27 Mar 20 UTC Spring, 1907: Cheerio! I support the French proposal. He can solo this year without opposition, and even coordinated opposition would just delay the result. Let's Ready Orders, and move on to new games.
28 Mar 20 UTC Spring, 1907: I’m for that.
28 Mar 20 UTC Cheerio! My order is in and ready.
28 Mar 20 UTC Mine as well.

29 Mar 20 UTC Readied once more
29 Mar 20 UTC Ready.
29 Mar 20 UTC Yes
29 Mar 20 UTC Great job, France, and thanks to everybody... even to my naive Austrian ex-ally :D :D
29 Mar 20 UTC Thank you!
This game was a pleasure to play. Good luck to everyone in their remaining games of the tournament!
