23 Jul 11 UTC Autumn, 1903: Oh France, do you know what you do?
23 Jul 11 UTC Autumn, 1903: Italy, do we need to pause immediately? Or can we wait to see if Austria will put in orders quickly, so we can get our builds in?
23 Jul 11 UTC Autumn, 1903: I'm leaving tomorrow morning. Immediately is necesary, especially if everyone is going to hit it before I leave.
23 Jul 11 UTC Autumn, 1903: France, I see absolutely no point to what you are doing. That attack was foolish, as I was only helping you in the south. But have it be.
24 Jul 11 UTC Autumn, 1903: ok yall, I'm gone pause please
24 Jul 11 UTC Autumn, 1903: Could we have a pause please as i have been snowed in and i am losing my internet, it will be fixed by thurday
thanks
30 Jul 11 UTC Spring, 1904: we can unpause
30 Jul 11 UTC Spring, 1904: So we're just waiting for Italy to return now...?
30 Jul 11 UTC Spring, 1904: Yeah, sorry, I'm back. Ready to unpause?
31 Jul 11 UTC Spring, 1904: Austria? Russia? Would you mind unpausing?
31 Jul 11 UTC Spring, 1904: Well, I'm going to take this opportunity to talk with my allies.
I'm going to keep attacking France (I won't say how) and take Trieste. Germany takes Budapest while Tyrolia attacks Munich so France doesn't hold two German centers at once. Austria, you realize that you're dead, right? While you can cause problems to us, you can't actually keep any centers without a secret alliance, which is impossible. Turkey, I want you to move your fleet into the Ionian. France is going to take Tunis, and I'm going to support you into it so France won't get a build. Hey England, do you want to get in on the attack on France too?
Guys, what do we do if Austria or Russia don't come back?
01 Aug 11 UTC Spring, 1904: I think we can petition a mod to unpause for us.
01 Aug 11 UTC Spring, 1904: Especially since they have not conversed with anyone since the game began.
01 Aug 11 UTC Spring, 1904: it saddens me that you are soo against me Italy, i thought that perhaps we could remove germany together with the help of england, however if you must attack me then do so
02 Aug 11 UTC Spring, 1904: It's been 3 days. Let's petition a mod?
02 Aug 11 UTC Spring, 1904: ok then
03 Aug 11 UTC Spring, 1904: Yay for Russia! Now where is Austria?
04 Aug 11 UTC Spring, 1904: Hey ya'll it's moving again! Turkey, did you hear the plan? Are you in, Germany?
04 Aug 11 UTC Spring, 1904: I wish not stab my ally, but in defense, I must retain my own lands France has stolen. It's unfortunate we have come to this point.
04 Aug 11 UTC Spring, 1904: You didn't stab France, Germany. France stabbed you. He asked to be your enemy in attacking you.
04 Aug 11 UTC Spring, 1904: Turkey heard and will execute said plan!
04 Aug 11 UTC Spring, 1904: We do seem to be moving again....so we're waiting for time...ot Italy to press the "button".
04 Aug 11 UTC Spring, 1904: Wait, Germany, are you not attacking Budapest? Someone needs to attack it or I won't be able to take Trieste.
05 Aug 11 UTC Spring, 1904: Aw man, Turkey. You set yourself up for that one. I thought you had the army there in order to cover the retreat. (Sev-Arm)
I was worried about this turn apparently more than I should have been for France. What if he didn't move to Tunis? What if Brest got in the Mid-Atlantic? I guess I worry too much. Also, hello Austria! Are you really going to try for Greece?
07 Aug 11 UTC Spring, 1904: I'm guessing we're going to be waiting most of the week before the unpause is forced. Austria is surely not motivated to let us finish this game.
08 Aug 11 UTC Spring, 1904: Someone has hacked and used up all of my internet, because of this i would appreciate it if we kept the pause until the 27th or otherwise we would need to pause it every weekend
08 Aug 11 UTC Spring, 1904: The 27th? Wow. Is this game ever going to get off the ground?
I've taken off unpause.
09 Aug 11 UTC Spring, 1904: sorry about the wait
16 Aug 11 UTC Spring, 1904: but let's cut it short
17 Aug 11 UTC Spring, 1904: Is Austria gone again? Should we appeal to a mod?
17 Aug 11 UTC Spring, 1904: yes
25 Aug 11 UTC Spring, 1904: I submitted to a mod already...waiting action
26 Aug 11 UTC Autumn, 1904: Ok then. I'm supporting Turkey to Tunis, Germany is defending himself from France, Turkey from Russia, and me from Austria. Also, while I mean no offense to England, if you manage to take Moscow, Warsaw and potential victory is not far away. Turkey, I don't think you should help England to take Moscow, at least for right now. I wish I didn't have to say this publicly. Send Bulgaria back to Constantinople and use your build to push Russia out of your center.
England, are you going to help Turkey and I with France?
26 Aug 11 UTC Autumn, 1904: Why should I help with France? He's been above board with me.
27 Aug 11 UTC Autumn, 1904: Oh. I thought you were moving to attack him. No?
27 Aug 11 UTC Spring, 1905: You know what guys? We haven't played this in so long that I don't actualy remember all the board positions and alliances here. I think this game is over, and the points we're fighting over aren't that great. Classes are going to start soon and I want to limit the number of games I'm in, and besides, it's unbalanced now Germany's gone. Let's end this.
27 Aug 11 UTC Spring, 1905: england, do you want support into portugal?
27 Aug 11 UTC Spring, 1905: sorry but i must withdraw this offer as i just looked at my current position
28 Aug 11 UTC Spring, 1905: Actually, can you support me into Portugal? It could be the beginning of a wonderful friendship.
28 Aug 11 UTC Spring, 1905: i thought we already had a wonderful friendship
29 Aug 11 UTC Autumn, 1905: England, I think we should draw now. Germany is gone. France (and me probably) is going to take German builds. Also, Turkey, perhaps you should consider Tunis to North Africa. Don't say you'll definitely do it, but a maybe. I don't really think it's sporting to kill Austria before the draw, but if you won't draw now, I suppose I'll have to to end it.
29 Aug 11 UTC Autumn, 1905: Germany's not dead, he's sleeping!
29 Aug 11 UTC Autumn, 1905: He's in a coma. We should draw.
29 Aug 11 UTC Autumn, 1905: Germany is back
29 Aug 11 UTC Autumn, 1905: Finish off Austria and possibly Russia, then we can talk draw. For those of us that have stuck this thru for the last month during various delays, we deserve to the bounty.
29 Aug 11 UTC Autumn, 1905: Austria also stuck through I might add.
29 Aug 11 UTC Autumn, 1905: Actually, we had to get a mod to unpause because we waited a week for Austria.
31 Aug 11 UTC Delicious draw?
31 Aug 11 UTC Ok, I'll bow to the majority. It's sad we can't play this out after the long wait.
31 Aug 11 UTC Your Welcome Russia....
