15 Jul 10 UTC Spring, 1909: For the time being; use tyrian to rome anyway; it will brevent a bounce line on tyrian during autumn. I'll just move there in autumn. Support from apulia, naples, and tunis still guarantee ionian supremacy.

Then just disband tunis as your fleet in ionian remains supported by the same strength.
15 Jul 10 UTC Spring, 1909: Also, Turkey, your land units are spread far more thin, and far more vulnerable than you appear to portray; even if you can secure the black sea regions you are still vulnerable on your main flank since you must divert precious land armies to stall my main attack.
15 Jul 10 UTC Spring, 1909: excellent :)
15 Jul 10 UTC Spring, 1909: ITALY: What is your problem dude? Go back and read through the message archives! You are delusional my friend. You have made yourself believe that I had no intention of drawing earlier and that was never the case. I gave you a better deal than England offered. I said you, me and Germany would draw and the only reason I would neglect that deal was if England was going to be nearing 18, at which point, I would have no other choice but to try and beat him to it. His deal for you is let me win and you may survive. He has played you (both the first and second time you aligned with him). Remember, I only turned on you after you had supported him on the board and moved into Serbia. I didn't even make a move for Trieste, like you had asked, except to cut support for Budapest.

Read the archives and you will see that you committed the first aggression against our alliance, not me.
15 Jul 10 UTC Autumn, 1909: Beautiful set of moves, I must admit.
15 Jul 10 UTC Autumn, 1909: Russia: You're losing this game for yourself. You'll get a survive, but you could be drawing.
15 Jul 10 UTC Autumn, 1909: TUS-VEN this turn?
15 Jul 10 UTC Autumn, 1909: I'll hold the ION
15 Jul 10 UTC Autumn, 1909: yup, i was expecting turkey to convoy to venice and move trieste to tyrolia. That would have been worst case.
15 Jul 10 UTC Autumn, 1909: ...that would have been way too clever...missed the boat on that one...sorry, had to slip that one in :)
16 Jul 10 UTC Autumn, 1909: oh, you may have noticed I've assumed the role of antagonist :p
16 Jul 10 UTC Autumn, 1909: I must admit that those moves were very nice indeed. I was thinking about the convoy but I had to make sure I had the units to support back into Rumania in case Russia took it.
16 Jul 10 UTC Autumn, 1909: italy; we can just bounce in venice. there is no need for me to take it seeing as Turkey's failure to take venice last turn was essentially the failure to ever stop the ionian blockade. I'll just steamroll through austria together with Russia.

Not sure how the CP count will comem from, but lets keep it liquid for now.
16 Jul 10 UTC Autumn, 1909: sounds good to me...just let me know if/when you need anything.
16 Jul 10 UTC Autumn, 1909: E: Do you want to support yourself into TYR next move...or would you prefer I kill off something else (suggestion?).
16 Jul 10 UTC Autumn, 1909: I: When was the last time you made a decision for yourself in this game? England might as well be playing with a multi.
16 Jul 10 UTC Autumn, 1909: This game is over anyway so I don't know why I'm overly concerned...lol
17 Jul 10 UTC Autumn, 1909: "It was allready over when Italia and Germany falled under the charm spell of the witch -queen" (voice from below)
17 Jul 10 UTC Autumn, 1909: I'm not sure charm is the appropriote description...but we get the point.
17 Jul 10 UTC Autumn, 1909: Turkey...why don't you agree to hold your position - you still get 100+ points! E can get his sc's from G/R or me if he needs them.
17 Jul 10 UTC Autumn, 1909: England hurry up and win. I want to survive.
17 Jul 10 UTC Autumn, 1909: lol at the classic "multi-account accusation when things don't turn out well"
17 Jul 10 UTC Autumn, 1909: assuming I don't lose venice, St. Pete, Marseilles, and Berlin should end the game and not process retreats, granting technical survies to both Germany and Russia (due to a flaw in how the web-diplomacy arbitration system works) even if they lose all their SCs.
17 Jul 10 UTC Autumn, 1909: England, I was not accusing you of having a multi. I was saying that Italy might as well have been your multi since he wouldn't decide anything on his own...lol I definitely don't think anybody has cheated.
17 Jul 10 UTC Autumn, 1909: I can see how it could be misconstrued. I'm sorry for the confusion.
17 Jul 10 UTC Autumn, 1909: ...the decision on my part was to work with my ally, that meant cooperation and coordination of moves, something of a foreign concept to you Turkey. You can bleet about losing because of me but it was actually because of your own ineptitude to appreciate the situation in which you still needed more than yourself to win.
17 Jul 10 UTC Autumn, 1909: We already went over that part. Look at my record after the game and you will see I have no problem drawing.

How are you allies? You are letting him devour you for the win. Why aren't you mad he isn't drawing with you? You are being hypocritical in your view of my gameplay and your defense of England's.
17 Jul 10 UTC Autumn, 1909: ...perhaps - I'm just bitter that I stabbed my allies France and Austria to join your alliance only to be immediately turned on...as soon as I realized that the best I was getting was a survive I chose the side most likely to provide that. Nothing personal - kind of :)
17 Jul 10 UTC Autumn, 1909: I didn't turn on you. I just needed to take an SC so I could knock out Russia while you held back England. If I took Trieste from you, the only unit you would need to disband is the one in Trieste. That way, I could have finished Russia and we would be drawing right now.
17 Jul 10 UTC Autumn, 1909: Italy: Turkey really didn't turn on you. You expected him to, so you preemptively attacked him and then got mad when he defended himself. While he was acting pretty shady, you have no evidence that he actually stabbed you so you are being kind of irrational in your bitterness.
17 Jul 10 UTC Autumn, 1909: best defense. :) .and I am kidding about being bitter - it's a game! :)
17 Jul 10 UTC Autumn, 1909: So Turkey, am I to understand that you indeed do not intend to take venice so that i'll hit 18 and the game will end?
17 Jul 10 UTC Autumn, 1909: ...just retreat to ROM if he does.
18 Jul 10 UTC Autumn, 1909: Turkey: Will you support me to Moscow and cut Russian support in Ukraine? You could have Warsaw if you want.
18 Jul 10 UTC Spring, 1910: I can do that Germany.
19 Jul 10 UTC Spring, 1910: Interesting; but I don't understand why you want to eliminate russia. If you all just enter all holds everyone survives; if you impede me then certaain factions get eliminated. I just don't see what you have to gain from that.
19 Jul 10 UTC Spring, 1910: You are so much more benevolent now that you are on the verge of winning.
19 Jul 10 UTC Spring, 1910: lol
19 Jul 10 UTC Spring, 1910: E - can you want to support APU into VEN??? That would be awesome!
I hope you are retreating to ROM so we can wrap this puppy up.
19 Jul 10 UTC Spring, 1910: Good Lord - seriously! ~are we going to have to drag this out for another round...I think not! E- move to TUN and I will support you there.
19 Jul 10 UTC Spring, 1910: Yes, that poor old witch-queen is really going light-hearthed with time. O days where she was really evil and dreadful! What a superb ennemy it was in the glorious times! No, just an imperialist-as-usual ;)
19 Jul 10 UTC Spring, 1910: I can't wait to find out who you are France...In our next game I might even let you stab me! :)
19 Jul 10 UTC Spring, 1910: Come on fried Turkey don't attack me.
20 Jul 10 UTC Turkey: Sorry about last year, I guess I forgot to enter moves or click submit or something silly. Anyhow, you can't get both Moscow and Warsaw this year, so could you please just support me from Prussia to Warsaw? You would otherwise be cutting support there, and if there is another year you will easily take it. This doesn't affect you at all.
20 Jul 10 UTC And I have actually submitted moves this time, so it should work.
20 Jul 10 UTC Italy, I've complied with your request.
21 Jul 10 UTC Well, I was wondering where was Cujo on the map. Hello, dear Numberzero. Nice too meet you here as well :)
21 Jul 10 UTC Haha. Yeah.

I recently started playing 18 games at once; I'm waiting for those to end so I can start playing max 1 or 2 at a time so I can concentrate on them fully. Your roleplay was really inspiring this game though. Ugh. I keep mounting losses on every other front.
21 Jul 10 UTC I thought that was you over there in France Snorri :) Who here would be interested in joining General Assembly VI?
21 Jul 10 UTC GG everyone!
