29 Jul 12 UTC Autumn, 1904: This is a public letter from Turkey addressing England.

Dear England,

As everyone still alive in this game knows (or should be able to expect so), you have repeatedly requested me to turn my back on Russia. And as everyone still alive in this game can observe, I have been delaying any kind of decisive actions.

But now, I can openly respond to your request -- given France's greedy and aggressive behaviour, I shall have no choice but to stand allied with Russia for the rest of this game.

With four remaining forces quite balanced, it is clear that nobody is going to solo here. You and I, as the corner forces, should have the least worry to be eliminated and are in the driving seat if we want to eliminate one more player, let it be France or Russia.

With Turkey and Russia allied, it would be quite impossible to eliminate either of us. So, if you also decide to stand with France forever, I would suggest we draw this game after this year when Austria is offically dead.

However, in the last few rounds, France has proved to be an unreliable, greedy and aggressive player. He is a nuisance, if not a danger to anyone else. The picture is clear -- if you also join in the French assault, France is outright defenceless, and you can gain the most from the French soil. This would lead to a marginally more profitable 3-way draw.

So, 3-way or 4-way, the call is yours. Since there is little secret with four of us remaining, I am going for a public press here. I am OK with whatever you decide, though emotionally I am eager to eliminate the malicious and untrustworthy.
29 Jul 12 UTC Autumn, 1904: If I turned on france, that would open me up to an assault by russia, as well as eventually leading to turkish fleets breaking free of the med. And that simply will not fly. I get the feeling that this message, this "desperate plea" is simply a statement born of desperation with the french quickly about to capitalise on your position. Now, if france does, in fact betray me, as you seem to be saying he invariably will, I will cease hostilities with your russian comrade. But, barring that, I will continue in my current course of action until the time comes that a draw becomes necessary.
29 Jul 12 UTC Autumn, 1904: I agree with you guys. I think we have to strong alliance and I thing that's good. We can still continue for couple of years or draw now. For me it's the same
30 Jul 12 UTC Yeah I see these lines pretty locked up... Draw? Excellent game on all sides, for sure.
30 Jul 12 UTC I'm just in no mood to continue this game. I'm voting draw.
30 Jul 12 UTC I agree France. Great game to all
30 Jul 12 UTC Ironic, that turkey, the one who first came to us with the idea, is the last to vote for it.
31 Jul 12 UTC I have just woke up (I live in Hong Kong, which means I am off phase with most of you in communication),. I shall draw it now. great game to all
