20 Oct 11 UTC Autumn, 1906: Well Germany (and others), as you can see Turkey doesn't believe in alliances and just wants the solo win. Germany attackng Austria makes absolutely no sense.....
20 Oct 11 UTC Autumn, 1906: i'm not attacking you. i'm preventing you from attacking me. you should worry about turkey...
20 Oct 11 UTC Autumn, 1906: Germany, I didn't invade Bohemia, you did. You (and others) should also worry about Turkey.
20 Oct 11 UTC Autumn, 1906: It loooks like red yellow virus is becoming just the yellow virus.
20 Oct 11 UTC Autumn, 1906: I do believe in alliances. But only in my unspoken alliance with France. Sorry, Austria, but where else was I to go?
20 Oct 11 UTC Autumn, 1906: Oh, and I am also very willing to work with Germany, who will receive no contest from me in Moscow or Vienna.
20 Oct 11 UTC Autumn, 1906: Germany if you could spare an unit to attack North Sea it would be great.
20 Oct 11 UTC Autumn, 1906: Hi Turkey - you could have found other directions to go. But I do have to commend you for how Italy was wide open for you to attack. Maybe Germany and France are buying your soda water to believe that you won't attack them!
21 Oct 11 UTC Autumn, 1906: It is so peaceful up here. I wish the world would be like this. Everyone likes my Italian sodas and we all get along. Please come join me soon.
21 Oct 11 UTC Autumn, 1906: Germany you could have told me you were willing to attack North Sea. I'm moving out of Belgium immediatly and please talk to me in the future. I don't want to fight you,I just thought I would have lost both London and Liverpool and that's why I needed Belgium temporarely...
21 Oct 11 UTC Autumn, 1906: Nice Job Austria on protection but looks like you will be joining us soon. I hope you make a comeback Russia.
22 Oct 11 UTC Spring, 1907: That Italian soda is incredible...it allows you to keep on talking even when your country no longer exists!!!
22 Oct 11 UTC Spring, 1907: I'll take one to troll people when I die: "Peteeer... it's meee... the fiiiish... thanks to that fish food from Fukushima now I can taaalk..."
22 Oct 11 UTC Spring, 1907: We're coming up on Halloween....Rise of the Living Dead, Night of the Living Dead, zombies....will have to watch more closely to see if they are drinking any soda....
22 Oct 11 UTC Spring, 1907: Halloween + World peace. That would be perfect to resurrect Italy.
22 Oct 11 UTC Spring, 1907: Maybe Italy needs to also drink more Italian sodas for resurrection...!
22 Oct 11 UTC Spring, 1907: I hear you and yes I think it may work. I will be ready for that day. It will be revenge on Turkey. I should be able to come down with special powers and stop all the fighting.
22 Oct 11 UTC Autumn, 1907: Sounds like the return of the Italian Soda Pope!!
22 Oct 11 UTC Autumn, 1907: Germany I hope you wont take Belgium and let Turkey by that move to take all the rest from me and win the solo.
22 Oct 11 UTC Autumn, 1907: I think Germany established last turn that he does not intend to play for the short run. So to both of you, I got your message. I am not getting the solo. I do not plan on extending beyond Austria and Italy's territories.
22 Oct 11 UTC Autumn, 1907: Yes,I saw that,you just want Tyrhenian and nothing further.
23 Oct 11 UTC Autumn, 1907: My experience with Turkey is that when Austria and Italy are consumed, Turkey cannot be stopped from the solo....
23 Oct 11 UTC Autumn, 1907: The solo can only be preventive through cooperation of other countries(namely Germany and FrancE) then from there maybe even dismantled.
23 Oct 11 UTC Autumn, 1907: I moved to Tyrrhenian because you built a fleet in Marseilles. And Italy is right - I'm not a threat to take it all as long as you two aren't in-fighting or making my conquering of Austria easier.
23 Oct 11 UTC Autumn, 1907: I would prepare for more cause once England is out of the way they will be heading that way.
23 Oct 11 UTC Autumn, 1907: Well, let's just do the math. Turkey is at 12 and has stated he will stop at Austria. That would be 15. Turkey is already in S. Russia, so it's pretty easy to add Warsaw and Moscow. That only leaves one more for the solo. St. Pete? Munich? Marseilles? Spain? I guess I don't buy the "I'm stopping at Austria" argument, and neither should France, Germany , England, Russia...
23 Oct 11 UTC Autumn, 1907: It's pretty easy to add Moscow and Warsaw? And what do you say about my fleets remaining steady while France pushes toward Tunis? Look at the progression of the last two years - I have been far from aggressive in the southern seas, which is the place where I should be pushing if I'm working for a solo.
24 Oct 11 UTC Spring, 1908: So Turkey, you are expecting us to believe that you will stop at 15, just like you told Italy that you would not attack Naples? What are you smoking?!
24 Oct 11 UTC Spring, 1908: france, werent you going to get out of belgium?
how can i trust your word from now on?
24 Oct 11 UTC Spring, 1908: If they leave all those centers as wide open as Italy left Naples, then yes, I will take them. All I've been saying is that an overreaction isn't necessary. Check me to make sure I don't have a wide open path, but it's not yet to the point where everyone needs to band together and use every last resource to stop me.
24 Oct 11 UTC Autumn, 1908: I think it is at that point to band together to stop Turkey....
25 Oct 11 UTC Spring, 1909: englaand why didint you just leave kiel open? you're making it easier for turkey...
25 Oct 11 UTC Spring, 1909: Germany I've been inviting you to talk but you talk only when your ass is in danger.Keep acting like this and you'll give the solo to Turkey.You can attack me in England now as well and don't allow me to build any more so Turkey could take Marseille,Spain and Portugal.Go ahead,you needed Belgium badly,more then me,it's clear.
25 Oct 11 UTC Spring, 1909: what are you talking about? i've got no intentions of attacking you. i'm trying to hold turkey back.
25 Oct 11 UTC Spring, 1909: france, stop fooling around, we are together in this. belgium was mine from the beginning.
25 Oct 11 UTC Spring, 1909: looks like England and Austria will be joining me soon. Germany I think its too late to Stop Turkey. It needed a coop from everyone so by fighting Russia and England it has left the door wide open but good luck anyway.
25 Oct 11 UTC Spring, 1909: germany what are you talking about? so what if belgium was your's once?
In this kind of game without proper messaging we'll survive and prevent Turkish solo only if we'll be on 9-9 and not on 7-11.
So forget about Belgium,you have StP and Kiel and Munich is not under attack and Marseille,Spain and Portugal are.
Open your eyes finaly or Turkey wins,I guarante it to you.
26 Oct 11 UTC Autumn, 1909: ok france you can keep belgium. now, move south. btw, good moves in med.
26 Oct 11 UTC Autumn, 1909: Austria and Russia I have Italian sodas waiting for you and England I will keep yours on Ice. See ya soon.
26 Oct 11 UTC Autumn, 1909: Thanks Germany,I needed one more fleet to prevent his break into the Mid Atlantic,he's locked now.
26 Oct 11 UTC Autumn, 1909: Yeah, looks like you guys pulled it together just in time. Barring my spotting any hole in your defense, we can call it a draw after England is gone.
Good game all.
26 Oct 11 UTC Autumn, 1909: You can draw now if you want, I don't want Italy's sodas :P
26 Oct 11 UTC Autumn, 1909: But they are so delicious and yummy. Good with Krumpets!!
Really Turkey Draw you still have the upper hand. You only need two.
27 Oct 11 UTC Spring, 1910: i'm moving to north sea and to ruhr.
27 Oct 11 UTC Spring, 1910: actually france, i only need 7 units. you can take holland this turn if you want to.
27 Oct 11 UTC Spring, 1910: Well I'm going to try, but I don't like my chances of getting anything besides Moscow
27 Oct 11 UTC Spring, 1910: you should have a chance at Moscow, Munich, Berlin, Mar and Spain
27 Oct 11 UTC Autumn, 1910: Germany I wont take Holland,I don't need it.But I prefer you stay in Norway,we have enough fleets to prevent a break through Mid Atlantic.
27 Oct 11 UTC Autumn, 1910: Germany take Prussia from Silesia with two supports and everything will be defendable.
He can't harm you anyhow even if you give Silesia to him.
28 Oct 11 UTC Turkey - come on.
Germany - North Sea goes to Belgium,Belgium goes to Burgundy.
