27 Jun 12 UTC Autumn, 1903: England is attacking France now?Make you're mind up mate
29 Jun 12 UTC Spring, 1904: Well, Italy, that attack on me sure panned out for you didn't it? (as often is the case when Italy attacks Austria early). Seems to have worked out for Tur
01 Jul 12 UTC Autumn, 1904: Why when Tunis attack ion sea he was still abble to do his convoy to apulia???
01 Jul 12 UTC Autumn, 1904: You have to dislodge a fleet in order to stop a convoy.
01 Jul 12 UTC Autumn, 1904: PosterboyPatriot is a lame lame player. He starts off by attacking me (Austria) which, generally, is a bad move on Italy's part. Then when things aren't going his way, he quits.

01 Jul 12 UTC Autumn, 1904: He's actually won one game which I find amazing.
14 Jul 12 UTC Autumn, 1908: Hey Austria. Did you realize you haven't expand since the first year. In 8 years you took Greece.
14 Jul 12 UTC Autumn, 1908: Hey France, did you know that in 2 out of every 3 games played, Austria is'nt even around in 1909? I think I'm doing okay
14 Jul 12 UTC Autumn, 1908: Yeah but at least they try. The only thing you did was giving the game to turkey
14 Jul 12 UTC Autumn, 1908: I am back! after a radiosilence caused by my holidays
14 Jul 12 UTC Autumn, 1908: What was I supposed to do, France, when Russia and Italy both attacked me in 1901? I had little choice but to work with Turkey. And at what point was I going to turn on him? I'd get killed; he's got way more centers than I do. It would be suicide.
14 Jul 12 UTC Autumn, 1908: I don't know why you are so bitter.
14 Jul 12 UTC Spring, 1909: If you want to blame someone for Turkey being as big as he is now blame Italy. The moron stabbed me in Spring '01. Italy pulling that stunt is almost always bad for both Austria and Italy and always good for Turkey.
15 Jul 12 UTC Spring, 1909: I forgot to mentioned to France that I am offering to draw the game. So Austria is not giving the game away...
15 Jul 12 UTC Spring, 1909: France, if you have paid attention to what happened between Austria and Turkey, you should not have felt so bitter. I have the incentive to keep Austria around because I need to leapfrog to Italy quick and try to seize the Mediterranean (I screwed up with a couple of misorders, but that plan could have worked). Austria had the incentive to work with me because I could away recoil my force and swallow him up if he tried to be naughty. This is one rare scenario that Austria and Turkey can work together, but it was totally rational.

Honestly, this is the only meaningful thing about this game which has a frequency of communication of a gunboat level and ridiculous civil disorders.
15 Jul 12 UTC Spring, 1909: Ok guys i'm not mad. Turkey you are a great player. I just found it sad that turkey hasn't got bigger. The fact the you guys are being loyale is amazing. I just think that the Italy part should belong to austria. I don't understand why you give it to turkey
15 Jul 12 UTC Spring, 1909: As far for the draw I'm okay with that because the game will block pretty soon
15 Jul 12 UTC I gave Italy to Turkey because pretty much, at any given time in the past seven game years, he could have eliminated me from the game.
15 Jul 12 UTC "He" being Turkey. In any case, I might get a part of a draw out of this. We'll see.
15 Jul 12 UTC England are youy fine with the draw??
16 Jul 12 UTC I have a public warning to France. The only reason England may not want to draw is because he thinks he has a shot to victory. And the only way he may have a shot is to stab you with his beautiful navy in MAO, which means he can choose one of the three unguarded provinces from you.
16 Jul 12 UTC Good Point
16 Jul 12 UTC France is a bit of a rookie; good to point these things out to him
16 Jul 12 UTC Yes I'm a rookie but what's the difference between Brest, Spain and portugal unprotected and serbie and Budapest who are also unprotected???
16 Jul 12 UTC The difference is that, I have voted draw. England has not
16 Jul 12 UTC thanx for playing. i will draw. i am on holidays so the wifi was not covered everywhere. so that is why i missed a turn. it was an interesting game.
