1 excused missed turn
Game won by LogicCure (494 D)
29 Dec 14 UTC Autumn, 9: I'd like to propose a draw between the three biggest powers. If this is agreeable I will make no more moves against Greece or Rome. If Rome refuses (and bearing in mind he is 3 SCs from a win - counting Numidia and Leptis as his already) I would like to quickly go to peaceful relations with Greece and Egypt to prevent his win.
29 Dec 14 UTC Autumn, 9: I would prefer Rome win. I'll disband Memphis and support Marmarica into Memphis from Bayuda.
30 Dec 14 UTC Autumn, 9: I'd go for a draw. I don't deserve it because of my missed phase but I'll take it over a loss.
01 Jan 15 UTC Spring, 10: Okay, Greece I'll support you from now and and we can move this towards a draw. What say you Rome?
01 Jan 15 UTC Spring, 10: I won't draw until Persia is defeated.
02 Jan 15 UTC Spring, 10: Great, it looks like we are agreed. I'm moving Alexandria to Memphis this turn, if it succeeds we can draw next spring.
02 Jan 15 UTC Spring, 10: I think you misread that.
02 Jan 15 UTC Spring, 10: Oh, yes. You're right I did.
02 Jan 15 UTC Spring, 10: But you know it's much more likely that you will solo win before I am defeated. That's pretty much unavoidable in your position if you insist on a 'draw' without Persia.
02 Jan 15 UTC Spring, 10: Greece, Egypt - in this situation, with Rome going for the win, Persia will now conduct war with the aim of preserving Greece and Egypt.
02 Jan 15 UTC Spring, 10: Persia hopes you also take defensive measures now Imperial Rome has been uncloaked and clearly has his dick out, in the wind, and is waving it in your faces.
02 Jan 15 UTC Spring, 10: At least my dick is clean. After waving yours put and around for so long I imagine it's quite nauseating to behold.
02 Jan 15 UTC Spring, 10: Quite, although the current Persian Monarch sports a bejewelled bobby dazzler. Mine, on the other hand, causes women to wretch at 500 yards. Have you got a picture?
02 Jan 15 UTC Spring, 10: You can see it just a little bit further down from this box jutting out into the Mediterranean.
02 Jan 15 UTC Spring, 10: It's a beaut! Mine, comparably, is a bit like the Sinai.
03 Jan 15 UTC Autumn, 10: My orders are the same as last round.
03 Jan 15 UTC Autumn, 10: Egypt, my old pal, if you move to Memphis I will support you into Cyrene in the Spring.
04 Jan 15 UTC Autumn, 10: My orders are still the same.
04 Jan 15 UTC Autumn, 10: You would have made a good Kamikazee pilot!! Pull up pull up!
04 Jan 15 UTC Autumn, 10: Egypt we need you in the fight!! Swerve!
04 Jan 15 UTC Autumn, 10: Well persia, it looks like i'm on your side if you'll have me.
04 Jan 15 UTC Autumn, 10: Sure. Imperial rome is two SC's from a win. But he's still quite a distance from getting those 2. We need to defend Greece and Egypt like mad dogs shiting fire.
04 Jan 15 UTC Autumn, 10: Sorry, I thought he wouldn't put in orders and I could end the game.
05 Jan 15 UTC Autumn, 10: Greece perhaps disband Epirus.
07 Jan 15 UTC Spring, 11: Egypt would you mind changing your tactics and joining us?
07 Jan 15 UTC Spring, 11: I'm actually not sure why Greece is siding with you since the only way you can grow is through him.
07 Jan 15 UTC Spring, 11: Well it's the whole balls up against a cold steel cage in mexican prison type thing. What I mean by that is Rome is 2 away from a solo, and he won't draw, why would he?, so alining with Persia is about self preservation.
07 Jan 15 UTC Spring, 11: Aye, the aim here is to not be defeated and destroyed. That's what our mutual aim is. Rome is 2 away from a win (not a draw). Greece can you support Egyptian Sea into Libyan sea with Crete (I'll support Crete with Minoan)? Egypt can you move into your province of Memphis so we can assault Cyrene shortly after. If we do this we can at least force a draw.
07 Jan 15 UTC Spring, 11: Self preservation? Get eaten by the Romans or the Persians. I've made my choice.
07 Jan 15 UTC Spring, 11: Supporting Bayuda to Memphis just in case Persia tries to take Memphis himself to sweeten his own portion of the draw pot.
08 Jan 15 UTC Spring, 11: You're supporting me? Okay, I'll go on the attack then.
08 Jan 15 UTC Spring, 11: Well, the reverse wasn't getting anyone anywhere so time to change it up a bit.
08 Jan 15 UTC Autumn, 11: Well i'm an idiot Persia, I reversed the support, Libyan s to Egyptian. Thats what happens when you submit orders on a packed bus. Sorry.
08 Jan 15 UTC Autumn, 11: Worked out well for your side anyway.
09 Jan 15 UTC Autumn, 11: Egypt let's play for a draw. It seems you are in a position to decide our fates. Draw or lose?
10 Jan 15 UTC Autumn, 11: Greece - i can cover Macedonia if you like.
10 Jan 15 UTC Autumn, 11: Well, since you have no hope of withstanding Persia's repeated treachery on one side and my inevitable advance on the other, why not just let me have Sparta and Athens to steal the win from him?
11 Jan 15 UTC Autumn, 11: Well, it's been another shitty game on my part. Good luck Rome.
11 Jan 15 UTC Autumn, 11: Thank you, good luck elsewhere.
11 Jan 15 UTC Autumn, 11: Rome, haha, how does that logic work? Surely if you wanted Greece to agree with you you would be proposing a draw?
11 Jan 15 UTC Autumn, 11: Greece, apologies about taking Macedonia, I expected a bounce.
11 Jan 15 UTC Autumn, 11: He's clearly not going to be included in any draws. You're gobbling up his undefeated east while I push in from the west. If he thinks you'll actually draw with him and not just pinch him out, then he's a fool. It's now just up to him whether I beat you outright or the two of us draw.
11 Jan 15 UTC Autumn, 11: But I would prefer a draw to being beaten, so I'll click the old draw button.
11 Jan 15 UTC Autumn, 11: That's irrelevant to whether or not you'll snuff out Greece. If your goal is to draw then it's in your best interest to conquer what's left of Greece to make sure I don't get it. Unless we're just making irrational decisions now.
11 Jan 15 UTC Autumn, 11: Or I can support Greece and prevent your win. Not sure I understand your position, really.
15 Jan 15 UTC Spring, 12: FUCK!
15 Jan 15 UTC Spring, 12: Is that the opinion of the oracles you've consulted?
15 Jan 15 UTC I lol'd.
17 Jan 15 UTC Well done logiccure. I f-ed up my convoy order and accidentally gave you Alexandria :(
18 Jan 15 UTC Thank you. Sometimes all it takes is a little luck.
