07 Jan 21 UTC Autumn, 1906: If you guys are playing please input your orders, this current position is a really interesting one and I want to see how Russia plays it out
07 Jan 21 UTC Autumn, 1906: In my unbiased opinion, I have no issue whatsoever with an AFK Austria during these final few turns ;)
08 Jan 21 UTC Autumn, 1906: Mods told me to fuck off essentially so gg russia lol
09 Jan 21 UTC Autumn, 1906: :'(
09 Jan 21 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.
09 Jan 21 UTC Autumn, 1906: oh we will have 24 hours at least, lets see if we get a taker
09 Jan 21 UTC Autumn, 1906: To all takers: please don’t take.
09 Jan 21 UTC Autumn, 1906: ;)
09 Jan 21 UTC Autumn, 1906: New Austria ready to kick butt and keep the game moving along
09 Jan 21 UTC Autumn, 1906: thank goodness!
09 Jan 21 UTC Autumn, 1906: I see the name of the game is ‘For gods sake stop Russia’

I’m willing to play
09 Jan 21 UTC Autumn, 1906: appreciate it austria! good luck russia! hopefully this is fun down to the end
09 Jan 21 UTC Autumn, 1906: Thanks Austria for taking over! Russia will have a hell of a fight!
09 Jan 21 UTC Autumn, 1906: *Activating Anti-Cossack Defence Hussar Systems*
10 Jan 21 UTC Autumn, 1906: Austria-Cyberdyne does not scare me! For the motherland!
10 Jan 21 UTC Autumn, 1906: This is getting quite spicy indeed.
10 Jan 21 UTC Autumn, 1906: Ruskies have reached the shores of the Atlantic! A sad day indeed
14 Jan 21 UTC Spring, 1907: I’ll be honest, fellas, I’m beginning to really like my odds here ;)
20 Jan 21 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.
21 Jan 21 UTC Autumn, 1907: And another Austrian falls
21 Jan 21 UTC Autumn, 1907: I'm not dead yet!
21 Jan 21 UTC Autumn, 1907: LOL, welcome new new Austria.
21 Jan 21 UTC Autumn, 1907: Hey Russia, you mind moving out of Trieste? It was kind of mean that you took it by force
21 Jan 21 UTC Autumn, 1907: I suppose I see your point. But, on the other hand, it was also kind of mean that you didn't immediately surrender when you saw my armies approaching. It's not that I WANTED to use force; it's that you forced me to use force by not surrendering. Do you see what I mean?
21 Jan 21 UTC Autumn, 1907: You know what, yeah, your right. I completely surrender all my territories to you except for Greece. Please don't attack now?
21 Jan 21 UTC Autumn, 1907: Don't worry bucko; I don't need any of your other territories. Austrian Greece can continue to exist alongside Russian Austria and Russian Hungary ;).
21 Jan 21 UTC Autumn, 1907: Can I keep my name??
21 Jan 21 UTC Autumn, 1907: Of course! The Dutch East Indies were still called the "Dutch" East Indies after a certain angry mustache man yeeted the Netherlands.
21 Jan 21 UTC Autumn, 1907: And you not call yourself Russian Austria or Hungry Russia?
21 Jan 21 UTC Autumn, 1907: I wouldn't think of calling myself Russian Austria! On the other hand, "Hungry Russia" seems to be a pretty apt description, honestly.
22 Jan 21 UTC Autumn, 1907: Italy: good moves there. It was ballsy of you not to cover Bulgaria, but your gamble paid off well.
22 Jan 21 UTC Autumn, 1907: I figured you'd bounce yourself in Sev again, you were forced to cover. Think your moves in the north may be enough for now though since you aren't under direct pressure yet
22 Jan 21 UTC Autumn, 1907: In retrospect, I should have had Black Sea tap Constantinople. Oh well.
24 Jan 21 UTC Spring, 1908: Hummm... I like what I see southward. Sevastopol should be hard to hold which would open a breech.

A draw stays possible.

England, would vote draw? So we may tempt the devil...
24 Jan 21 UTC Spring, 1908: I, for one, second the French Notion
27 Jan 21 UTC Spring, 1908: Uh oh, is this it?
27 Jan 21 UTC Spring, 1908: You know, it’s funny, the thought of moving Burgundy to Paris never even occurred to me, even though that was obviously the right move in France.

This has been a bit of a blundering solo attempt, but I think I’ve got it in the bag from here.
27 Jan 21 UTC Spring, 1908: You could just, not?
27 Jan 21 UTC Spring, 1908: I did my best, I think I screwed up with a ship in the adriatic rather than sending one more over to the aegean so I could commit to attacking the black sea, but if it had gone on for one more year I would've had you... GG
27 Jan 21 UTC Might be too few too late, even if I succeeded in throwing out Russia from Gascony,
27 Jan 21 UTC And he guessed right on Yor or Edi, while I guessed right that a convoy was coming.
28 Jan 21 UTC You guys played it well. France and England: trying to disrupt the convoy was the right move. Italy: I don't think the Adriatic was a mistake; the problem was Turkey's fleet trapped on the wrong side of Bulgaria. As long as that was there, you were never going to be able to break through to Sevastopol.
28 Jan 21 UTC nah i can get through, just not quick enough lol
28 Jan 21 UTC I don’t think you could; even if you got into Black Sea, my unit in Rumania could support-hold Sev. To break through you’d need to cut support AND attack Sev with two units, something that would be impossible with Bulgaria on the south coast.
30 Jan 21 UTC 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.
31 Jan 21 UTC gg
31 Jan 21 UTC GG all! You fought well.
31 Jan 21 UTC I think the key moment for me was 1902. Unexpectedly getting both Denmark and Berlin on the same turn instantly made me the most country on the board, while France (the second-most powerful) lost a build. It also helped that the original England and original Turkey were both content to ignore me while I consolidated power in Germany and Austria.
31 Jan 21 UTC GG all!
31 Jan 21 UTC gg, congrats Russia!
