25 Aug 12 UTC Autumn, 1901: Yeaaaaaaaaaah.
29 Aug 12 UTC Autumn, 1902: So I guess Germany and England just plan to hand the game to Russia.
29 Aug 12 UTC Autumn, 1902: France, you've been a joy to play with.
29 Aug 12 UTC Autumn, 1902: you've been a fucking burden.
31 Aug 12 UTC Spring, 1903: Let's keep this civil, France.
31 Aug 12 UTC Spring, 1903: Because when someone uses a swear word, what they actually meant to do was throw a chair.
04 Sep 12 UTC Spring, 1904: Austria, I hope you enjoy losing to Russia
05 Sep 12 UTC Spring, 1904: Germany's destroys are a bit sketchy
05 Sep 12 UTC Spring, 1904: Всем надо учиться русским.
05 Sep 12 UTC Spring, 1904: Это не так уж плохо, по крайней мере, я люблю водку
05 Sep 12 UTC Spring, 1904: :-) мнө хочөтся водочко дорогое.
05 Sep 12 UTC Spring, 1904: позволяет пить водку во Франции
05 Sep 12 UTC Spring, 1904: Согласно. Но дела том что мы опоздаем.
05 Sep 12 UTC Spring, 1904: дела в том
05 Sep 12 UTC Spring, 1904: I'll be drinking in England.
05 Sep 12 UTC Spring, 1904: Is that where you live? ;)
06 Sep 12 UTC Spring, 1904: Looks like there is a shipload of Russian vodka on the way for your drinking pleasure.
06 Sep 12 UTC Spring, 1904: Who would have thought that the Kingdom of Denmark would have a chance to outlive two great powers?
06 Sep 12 UTC Spring, 1904: Open letter to France & England. Russia has been a good ally and a very competent tactician. He now is on the way to 12+ centers and an almost sure win. Any chance the two of you can quit squabbling and present a united front? With a little luck, we might at least force a 4-way draw.
06 Sep 12 UTC Spring, 1904: I'd love to but hee's been persistent to to attack throughout my previous offers of peace
06 Sep 12 UTC Spring, 1904: Right. Such a saint you are, with your genuine attempts at peace way back in the first couple of turns, and and your high praise and kind words when I didn't bend over for you - all delivered with such intellect, wit, and maturity! I mean, I see it now: Shame on me! Shame for trying to keep you out of my supply centers that clearly are rightfully yours, when I should be just letting you in so that we can present a united front! Va te faire foutre.
06 Sep 12 UTC Spring, 1904: Or, you could keep bickering and learn Russia. Мне всё равно.
06 Sep 12 UTC Spring, 1904: I shall bring vodka to all the lovely German-speaking people, and we shall party like it's 1899!
06 Sep 12 UTC Spring, 1904: Squabbling and bickering don't make moves on the map. Tell me how my moves over the past several turns have been anything other than trying to keep France out of my SCs? This is not me trying to attack him while Russia consumes all, this is me trying to stay afloat against an enemy that has persistently continued to attack despite making no progress. What SCs of his have I been threatening? What am I supposed to do, throw all my forces against Russia while France takes me over?
06 Sep 12 UTC Spring, 1904: Your first move was to the Channel, not great start to make any France happy.
06 Sep 12 UTC Spring, 1904: I'll PM you, so the rest don't need to keep listening to this crap.
06 Sep 12 UTC Spring, 1904: He's made it clear that he wants Russia to win with little opposition from him.
06 Sep 12 UTC Spring, 1904: What %*#$% opposition can I have put up without you taking me over? I moved the only unit I could spare against Russia to no avail, because you've been sitting in Irish Sea since Autumn '01. And Austria, who was it that provided support and alliance to Russia until this last turn? And all of a sudden it's my fault? Russia is ahead, so let's all bitch that it's not us and find someone to blame. Get a grip.
06 Sep 12 UTC Spring, 1904: Glad to see you are enjoying the "game", England.
06 Sep 12 UTC Spring, 1904: yeah, well I have to agree, I think you screwed this one Austria...Russia ran away with the game, and you gave it to them. England wasn't pushing russia from the north, it seemed like germany and russia had some kind of a deal, so rather than presenting a unified front in the south, you screwed me and let them run away with the game. It was fun, but not as fun as it could have been (at least for me). Of course, England and France unbalanced things pretty well, esp when they kept at it even after russia started to pull away.
06 Sep 12 UTC Spring, 1904: Germany just let Russia in, its very sketchy on his part.
09 Sep 12 UTC Autumn, 1904: So England is a faggot.
10 Sep 12 UTC Spring, 1905: I understand your perspective Turkey, but you will recall that Russia was already adjacent to my undefended home SC's when we discussed moving against him. Having him retreat into BUD after a stab did not seem wise.
10 Sep 12 UTC Spring, 1905: And England -- I'm not sure I like France's attitude, but the fact remains that France was willing to back off in order to give you a chance to turn the tide against Russia. Instead, you continue to make aggressive moves against France while essentially granting Russia your home SC's. Really quite unbelievable. Russia has played well, but the competition has not been the best.
10 Sep 12 UTC Spring, 1905: I continued the moves I began prior to finally try to push him out of Irish, etc. I haven't "continued" any moves since he backed off - there haven't been any. He was "willing" to back off at this point? How nice of him. If I knew he was willing to back off this past turn I wouldn't have believed him, and until now why would I? I have him on mute anyway because I was having a hard time resisting stooping to his level. You made your moves as you've seen fit, you've played your game...now stop trying to play mine. This ain't an alliance that's going to work this game, which can't end soon enough as far as I'm concerned.
11 Sep 12 UTC Spring, 1905: England is a Faggot.
11 Sep 12 UTC Spring, 1905: So that was his plan. To Suck Russia's Dick so survive. I bet he learned that from his mother.
11 Sep 12 UTC Spring, 1905: All in favor of collectively muting France?
11 Sep 12 UTC Spring, 1905: was your mother a whore like England's?
14 Sep 12 UTC Autumn, 1905: I'll take the silence as a yes ;)
18 Sep 12 UTC Spring, 1906: GameMaster: thatonekid was banned: multi. The time until the next phase has been extended by one phase length to give an opportunity to replace the player.
Remember to finalize your orders if you don't want to wait, so the game isn't held up unnecessarily!
18 Sep 12 UTC Spring, 1906: So ... two options here. 1. We quickly declare a three-way draw before France is replaced. 2. We essentially concede the win to Russia, which I think will happen if Russia completes and "readies" his orders (though we also have to play through the fall). I think we could even prevail upon the GameMaster to facilitate that somehow if necessary.
18 Sep 12 UTC Spring, 1906: And by the way, by "concede" I do not mean that Russia did not earn the win ... I mean that we are recognizing the fact that he did and simply hastening the end.
18 Sep 12 UTC Spring, 1906: Wow. I guess if I could have picked one player on the site that I'd have liked to see go.....
Seems fitting.

Yes, this is Russia's game, so I'm good with whatever.
19 Sep 12 UTC Spring, 1906: I can take Paris as my last supply center, and we can be done with this game.

Austria, I'll give you the support you'd need next turn for taking Marseilles, so you'll get a few more points.
England, you cant take Brest this turn and then Spain next without any problem.
This way, you guys get some extra points. What do you all think?

I'll wait a little bit for people to update orders. I'll then change mine from my original plan, so we can get out with the biggest pie possible. What do you all think?
19 Sep 12 UTC Spring, 1906: Awesome. Thanks. For a behemoth looming over me, you've been great.
19 Sep 12 UTC Spring, 1906: Ready any time.
19 Sep 12 UTC Thanks, England.

I just put in my orders for this round. I'm supporting Piedmont to Marseilles, and the rest will be a complicated support hold network.

Sorry that it wasn't competitive until the bitter end, and that we had France spoil some of the fun, but I hope you guys had fun otherwise.
19 Sep 12 UTC I am not attacking except for MAR
19 Sep 12 UTC Solid.
