22 Mar 18 UTC Spring, 1901: Hello all. Sorry for late arrival. That new message app is less than great
22 Mar 18 UTC Spring, 1901: Italy. Shall we keep our areas clear. Pie. Gol. Western med?
22 Mar 18 UTC Spring, 1901: Hey all! Good luck and have fun.

France, we may be reshuffled soon. No need for diplomacy yet.
22 Mar 18 UTC Spring, 1901: Since this is the first game we have played, I doubt shuffling will be necessary... but we should wait for Goldie to nudge us.
22 Mar 18 UTC Spring, 1901: Also... the private press will be turned on when we start. :-) So the deal France and I make can be more secretive.
22 Mar 18 UTC Spring, 1901: Moderator: (goldfinger0303): Apologies. This should've been gunboated to begin with. I believe these games will be shuffled, yes.
24 Mar 18 UTC Spring, 1901: Moderator: (goldfinger0303): Good luck everyone! If you need a pause, let me and your captain know.
25 Mar 18 UTC Spring, 1901: "Full" press needs some global, right?
USUALLY I despise NMR's this early. But in The Tournament (hereafter referred to as TT,) I don't mind. Come on, Germany! Remain sleeping!!!
(Although I wouldn't mind of someone else NMR'd instead of Germany...)
25 Mar 18 UTC Autumn, 1901: I'm so sorry, everybody! I slept through my alarm. Hope y'all can forgive me!
02 Apr 18 UTC Autumn, 1902: I'm asking goldfinger0303 for a 60h pause. Sorry for the inconvenience.
02 Apr 18 UTC Autumn, 1902: No worries, if you need it take your time.
02 Apr 18 UTC Spring, 1903: Moderator: (goldfinger0303): This game will be paused by request until Thursday
04 Apr 18 UTC Spring, 1903: Moderator: (goldfinger0303): The player in question has requested their pause end early, so I am unpausing now.
10 Apr 18 UTC Spring, 1904: Moderator: (goldfinger0303): Pausing for a day by player request
10 Apr 18 UTC Spring, 1904: Moderator: (Claesar): I guess I'll be back same time tomorrow.
10 Apr 18 UTC Spring, 1904: Moderator: (goldfinger0303): Unpausing a little early since I'm not sure if I'll be around tonight. But I reset the whole phase, so that should leave plenty of time.
10 Apr 18 UTC Spring, 1904: Really? The whole phase again...?

France has readied up. Everyone tells me that they are my friend, so what do I have to fear?
10 Apr 18 UTC Spring, 1904: Moderator: (goldfinger0303): Fear an angry TD who doesn't like to be questioned. Mwuahhahaha.

(I don't like unpausing with only like an hour left, and have been resetting the phases in all other pauses. Consistency is key)
10 Apr 18 UTC Spring, 1904: I'm not sure how safe I feel now that there's maniacal laughter...
24 Apr 18 UTC Spring, 1906: just an FYI My electric went out for about 18 hours I dont play from the phone cuz i just have nothing but trouble, so i apologize for that everyone
26 Apr 18 UTC Spring, 1906: Moderator: (goldfinger0303): Russia if you needed a pause you could always just ask.
26 Apr 18 UTC Autumn, 1906: My electric went out...lol i didnt think 18 hours was gonna happen
03 May 18 UTC Autumn, 1907: Good Game, Austria!
10 May 18 UTC Spring, 1909: Phew!
I was worried there, but it's over now.
13 May 18 UTC Autumn, 1909: My vote is in. Anyone who doesn't want to draw is fooling themselves.
13 May 18 UTC Spring, 1910: Draw it is then.
13 May 18 UTC Spring, 1910: I will certainly not argue with that
14 May 18 UTC Spring, 1910: It's come to light that Italy and Turkey have been lying to me through their teeth. Since they plan to fuck me, my team and I have decided to throw the game to France since I'm going to be eliminated regardless. The Turkish attempt on Moscow last turn, coupled with the mass retreat in the Med by Italy are indicative of their plans to eliminate me. I played along to see if the 4wd was possible but I no longer think that will happen. Since that's the case, I'm going to make y'all pay for not helping me stop France when we had the chance. France, take Warsaw and Munich now, they cannot stop both if I tap Ukraine and Silesia.
If Warsaw is stopped, you can March your armies through Munich to Silesia, on to Warsaw.
If they block Munich, then you will have Warsaw and I can give you Moscow or Munich soon thereafter.

If I'm going down I'll take both Italy and Turkey with me!
14 May 18 UTC Spring, 1910: Nice speech!
14 May 18 UTC Spring, 1910: Turkey and I are voting to draw. We'd like a 4-way. The stalemate is locked.
If your team would prefer a French solo over a 4-way draw, then there's nothing Turkey and I can do to prevent that. You'll have your way.
14 May 18 UTC Spring, 1910: When this phase processes, you'll see that Turkey supports you to hold Moscow, while I defend Moscow and Munich from France again. You decide the outcome of this game; a French solo or a 4-way draw.
14 May 18 UTC Spring, 1910: (or you could all realize what mistakes you had stabbing ME, and we can start over.) :-)
15 May 18 UTC Spring, 1910: Yeah England, wish I had worked with you in the first place lol
15 May 18 UTC I am going to go ahead and ready up my orders. Obviously, you can all feel free to take all the time you want. But because there has not been a lot of communication for the past few turns, I’m happy to speed this along as fast as you would like.
15 May 18 UTC Thank you, gentlemen, for the game, especially Italy for the cooperation, as it turns out we've never met before.
Germany I hope you're happy with the aftermath of your own making.
15 May 18 UTC You certainly had a hand in the way this played our Turkey! Good game everyone
15 May 18 UTC What a crew.
Good game.
And I hate most of you, now. :-) But in the best possible way.
15 May 18 UTC Nice game all -- this was a fun group. Good luck to all of your teams in qualifying for the final. Hope to see you there.
15 May 18 UTC WOW... this tank was full of sharks...
some great names in here.
I enjoyed playing with you.
Hope to see you all around one of these days.
16 May 18 UTC Thanks for playing! I enjoyed large parts of this game. France and Austria, you played a great game here.
Some of us (including me) should reconsider their participation in this tournament though..

This was my first team tournament (probably for everyone but most). To be honest, I didn't like every aspect of the team part. While their tactical advice saved me a couple of times, the strategic tips made me feel like a schizophrenic..
