09 May 20 UTC Spring, 1901: Hi all, hope you’re all safe and well wherever you are and I look forward to a fun game :)

24 May 20 UTC Spring, 1905: New France here...it'll take me a bit to read all the press and catch up. It'd be nice to get your take on the game so far if you have time for a note. Thanks

29 May 20 UTC Autumn, 1905: Here we go again...
01 Jun 20 UTC Autumn, 1906: I never thought that this chat would be useful but here we come... Russia and Austria (and also Italy), the time has come to forget past animosity and direct all our efforts towards France. No matter what they will promise to you, it will be a lie. They are at 2 SCs from winning, and they will not accept a three way deal. Do not let them fool you as they fooled me before.
01 Jun 20 UTC Autumn, 1906: Four SCs, but I fully agree about all else. If France can make us fight each other, they can easily take what they need to solo, and none of us stands a chance to solo ourselves.
Funnily enough, the idea of writing a rallying speech in global chat never came to me, either.
05 Jun 20 UTC Spring, 1908: Here's the draft of the ultimatum, I want to hear if you or Russia have any thoughts on it:

Ultimatum

Hereby issued by the governments of Russia, Austria and Germany to France.
We have a stalemate line in place and wish to inform you of the futility of any further aggression against us. Hence we request the following:
1. You must accept a four-way draw composed of Russia, Austria, Germany and France.
2. In order to achieve such a draw, the powers will work together to eliminate Italy. In the current situation, this can be done within two seasons with A(Ven)-(Rom) and F(TYS)-(Nap), with the assistance of F(ION). If there are any worries about the fate of Venice, the move A(Pie)-(Ven) is acceptable.
3. As a sign of accepting the ultimatum, France must vote for a draw; Russia, Austria and Germany will do the same upon the completion of 2).

Signed by: Russia, Austria, Germany.
Season

I also want to add something along the lines of "all offensive actions north of Switzerland ought to be stopped", but I don't have a good idea on how to put it, especially because this might give France an idea our defenses are actually weak (this is not the case, but we still better not take the extra risk). We can issue the ultimatum on this or next turn. This is evening now in my timezone, I will review your suggestions, if any, in the morning.
05 Jun 20 UTC Spring, 1908: um, you forgot the "or else" part I think... :-)
05 Jun 20 UTC Spring, 1908: Sorry, this was supposed to go to Germany. I'll be back with a revised version once we agree upon it.
P.S. Second time I send a message to the wrong country, and somehow it is France both times.
05 Jun 20 UTC Spring, 1908: Lol
05 Jun 20 UTC Spring, 1908: Oh, it was global... I think the only thing worse would be to write "Hey guys here there be a Juggernaut" in Spring 1901 as Russia. Alright, since I did that anyways let's pretend we issued properly issued the ultimatum already.

The "or else" part was in the beginning. We've got a stalemate line in place, so you can't conquer us and we can't conquer you.
07 Jun 20 UTC To France, reminder on the stalemate line:
Fin & StP S Nwy; SKA & BAL S Den; Ber H; Sil & Boh S Mun; Vie S Tyr; Bud S Tri; Gre S Alb; AEG & EAS H (we have a fleet in ION instead of EAS, but it can retreat to proper position even if you manage to push into ION).
We hold 19 SCs total, so you can't solo no matter how much you wish to. Let's just get done with Italy to decrease draw size and vote for draw already.
07 Jun 20 UTC I've set draw...
07 Jun 20 UTC I assume that some or all of us might have received suggestions of setting up a three-way draw. I want to remind everyone that France is well positioned to stab us for a win should infighting arise in our alliance, so accepting such an offer would be utterly harmful to any one of us.
To France: we can support you with F(ION) into Naples, just tell us where and when to do so.
08 Jun 20 UTC I have no intention of whittling Italy, hence my setting draw.
08 Jun 20 UTC I would like to hear the opinions of Germany and Russia, but I won't protest against a five-way draw if they won't.
08 Jun 20 UTC I voted draw, if someone wants to eliminate Italy first you are welcome to withhold your vote.
08 Jun 20 UTC Honestly I don’t mind
08 Jun 20 UTC I obviously voted draw.
08 Jun 20 UTC :)
08 Jun 20 UTC Good game everyone, and good luck in your future games.
08 Jun 20 UTC Gg!
08 Jun 20 UTC Gg all.
