16 May 11 UTC Autumn, 1902: really?
16 May 11 UTC Autumn, 1902: Shush, you :-P You came out of that backstab better than me.
16 May 11 UTC Autumn, 1902: :P
18 May 11 UTC Spring, 1903: I am pretty sure the Russian will not be playing much in this game, fellow leaders. Is there anything we can do?
18 May 11 UTC Spring, 1903: I feel really rude for taking over Russia and not asking others.
27 May 11 UTC Spring, 1906: I think we might need to pause for the English. They are one of the main powers, and it seems they will miss their turn.
27 May 11 UTC Spring, 1906: Well, that messed the whole game up.
27 May 11 UTC Autumn, 1906: Fuck. I thought I put orders in...
27 May 11 UTC Autumn, 1906: lawlz
28 May 11 UTC Spring, 1907: Germany, France, and I now possess a perfect stalemate on Mid Atlantic Ocean, Kiel, and in Scandinaia. That means we can keep Austria at 16 supply permanently, which means his only choice in order to get his solo win is to backstab his ally Italy. I urge all players, Italy and Austria included, to vote for a draw, right now. If austria refuses to accept the draw, then it is plainly obvious that he intends to win this game, and the only method to do so is to turn on his own ally.

If this is the case, and he refuses to accept the draw, then I urge Italy to join the rest of us in forcing Austria to accept that we will not let him win this game.
29 May 11 UTC Spring, 1907: St. Petersburg, Moscow, Warsaw, Berlin, Munich, Seastapol, Smyrna, Ankara, Constantinople, Bulgaria, Serbia, Greece, Rumania, Budapest, \/ienna, Trieste.

Count them up, they're 16. He cannot take Kiel because it is supported by too many French armies for him to break. Italy cannot break the Mid Atlantic Ocean. I am about to put a fleet each on Norway/Sweden, which cannot be broken without fleets in the North.

This is a stalemate, and the only way Austria can break it is by attacking Italy. Therefore, I urge Italy to join us in forcing Austria to draw.
29 May 11 UTC Spring, 1907: Well he prolly can take over my shit and create a few fleets up there, but it'll take some time.
29 May 11 UTC Spring, 1907: Whose side are you on now?
29 May 11 UTC Spring, 1907: He can't create any fleets up there... the only way to get fleets up there is though the mid atlantic, which at this point is impossible. Also, to make Austria's situation even worse, I'm about to support Turkey back into St. Petersburg. This puts him down to 15 supply, and an even more unbreakable stalemate line along the North. Conveniently, he can take Italy's three and still win, though.

If italy's smart, he'll defend himself.
29 May 11 UTC Spring, 1907: I'm on neither side because I'm just that cool.
Dude, I bet Italy's a multi of Austria or a really good friend because it looks as if they're both trying to take over but not attack each other.
29 May 11 UTC Spring, 1907: Just because allies don't attack each other doesn't mean there's any meta going on >_>
29 May 11 UTC Spring, 1907: Yeah, that was a bit uncalled for. Besides, they are both experienced players, judging by their profiles, and that looks like something experienced players would do.

As is betraying each other at the right moment (hint-hint, nudge-nudge).
29 May 11 UTC Spring, 1907: I doubt Italy's a multi, but it does seem ludicrous that he refuses to accept the inevitability of the current situation. Draw or die, friend.
30 May 11 UTC Spring, 1907: I doubt you guys could take out Italy and then Austria.
Austria's prolly gonna take you out next, Italy.

Then he'll win.
30 May 11 UTC Autumn, 1907: We do not plan to attack the Italian...we do not possess the reosurces to do so. We are merely holding our ground and letting the Italian determine his own fate.
30 May 11 UTC Autumn, 1907: Well "Draw or Die" kinda sounds like you're gonna kill him if he doesn't draw.
But this is a huge stalemate. Should I draw? I feel bad for just having one supply center and siphoning points off of you guys if we draw.
30 May 11 UTC Autumn, 1907: Draw or die, as in draw, or die by austria. I am participating in no killing, and am able merely to maintain the current possession of myself, France, Germany, and Turkey's hold on St. Petersburg.
30 May 11 UTC Autumn, 1907: If austria attacks him, then you all lose.
30 May 11 UTC Autumn, 1907: Yes. But I ultimately can't do anything about it except try to get Italy to defend himself.
30 May 11 UTC Autumn, 1907: Austria is awfully silent.
30 May 11 UTC Autumn, 1907: I suppose he's hatching a plan.
30 May 11 UTC Autumn, 1907: why do i have to be hatching a plan because i dont with to entertain your speculations? i have kept the same alliance that i have had from the beginning...why would i want to draw with six out of seven powers on the board? doesnt make sense....if we wait long enough, one of you will make a mistake in this game....if you want a draw, get rid of the weaker countries and i will willingly split it at the most, 4 ways!!!
31 May 11 UTC Autumn, 1907: uh oh someone's mad.
31 May 11 UTC Autumn, 1907: Italy, is this the person you want to be allied with?
31 May 11 UTC Autumn, 1907: hehehe....not mad...just doesnt make sense not to play a game....i am game, are you???
31 May 11 UTC Autumn, 1907: Well I respect his decision, I'm pretty sure he can just win by taking over Italy right now.
31 May 11 UTC Autumn, 1907: Yeah well if Germany doesn't put in orders, it's over.
31 May 11 UTC Autumn, 1907: I say just let Germany die and call it a day
31 May 11 UTC Autumn, 1907: No its not, all Germany has to do is hold.
31 May 11 UTC Autumn, 1907: And Italy takes Greece. This is what I like to see.
31 May 11 UTC Autumn, 1907: Well we both know that Italy is next to die.
02 Jun 11 UTC Autumn, 1908: Just let Turkey and Germany die off and we can end this game....
02 Jun 11 UTC Autumn, 1908: Thanks.
03 Jun 11 UTC Autumn, 1908: Unexpected loss of internets. I'm sorry...
(Wouldn't make any difference anyway)
03 Jun 11 UTC Autumn, 1908: internets?
03 Jun 11 UTC Autumn, 1908: http://ohinternet.com/Internets
04 Jun 11 UTC Autumn, 1909: hahahahaha
06 Jun 11 UTC Spring, 1910: I publicly ask Austria to go back to Livonia, as England missed the last turn.
06 Jun 11 UTC Well Austria's gonna win soon.
07 Jun 11 UTC Well, that would have been uncertain had he not conquered St. Petersburg. Please try to move back to St. Petersburg, I hope Austria retreats.
07 Jun 11 UTC I doubt he's gonna listen. If the whole map was against me, that would piss me off a lot so I'm pretty sure I wouldn't listen to you guys.
07 Jun 11 UTC This is not about being pissed off or not, it's about fair play.

Besides, why are we discussing whether he will listen or not? We'll find out soon enough.
08 Jun 11 UTC Yay! :D
08 Jun 11 UTC lol, we probably should have drawn AFTER Turkey died >_>
08 Jun 11 UTC kinda lame that we got to 1910 just to draw 5-way....
