Remember to finalize your orders if you don't want to wait, so the game isn't held up unnecessarily!
04 Dec 18 UTC Spring, 1995: hi new poland joined
07 Dec 18 UTC Spring, 1996: Ok, someone has got to start fighting Turkey or Ukraine. These two are about to grow quickly and Russia and I don't really stand a chance as of now.
07 Dec 18 UTC Spring, 1996: hey calm egypt, you started this war playing very aggressive against turkey, quiet, relax, enjoy life
18 Dec 18 UTC Autumn, 1998: New Egypt here sooooo what’s going on?
21 Dec 18 UTC Spring, 1999: new Germany here to defend my one supply center in Frankfurt. This should go swimmingly.
23 Dec 18 UTC Autumn, 1999: Willing to Draw in this position
01 Jan 19 UTC Autumn, 2002: I’m willing to draw too
02 Jan 19 UTC Spring, 2003: Ok, so Poland, here's the deal. I've talked to the other major powers (Turkey, Spain, and Britain) and the consensus is we want to Draw. They can back me up by actually voting Draw. Probably you would like to continue for a while because you can boost your score by taking more centers. But with the sum-of-squares scoring system none of us can really boost our scores as long as you are gaining centers. I hope you also accept a Draw. 17/50 points is not bad after taking over a country in civil disorder. If you don't agree to Draw, I intend to join Britain and Turkey in fighting against you.
02 Jan 19 UTC Spring, 2003: I can draw
03 Jan 19 UTC Autumn, 2003: Hey guys, sorry for the delay. I’m gonna have to wait until I can get on my computer so I can draw. It doesn’t let me press the draw button when playing on my phone
04 Jan 19 UTC Autumn, 2003: Goddamn it Poland
04 Jan 19 UTC Autumn, 2003: Ok, full court press on Poland until he clicks Draw...else he can solo
04 Jan 19 UTC Autumn, 2003: Poland, if you draw now you get 25 points. You might not get this chance again.
04 Jan 19 UTC Autumn, 2003: anyone else impressed by how long I held out?
05 Jan 19 UTC Autumn, 2003: I am
05 Jan 19 UTC Happily accepted draw. Good game guys
05 Jan 19 UTC Hmmm, maybe next time you should go for it Eric...Italy was a little weak near Venice. I was locked down. Britain couldn't stop you, especially with Spain functionally counting as your ally. It would have been interesting. Regardless, well-played until now. gg.
05 Jan 19 UTC Yea i should have, but 25 is good enough. There is a chance if you guys coorindate really well and i can be destroyed
05 Jan 19 UTC France would have stopped him
05 Jan 19 UTC Oh hauta thats you. You just solo won another game as russia and me being egypt
05 Jan 19 UTC I suppose there's certain amount of pride in being the cancer that weakened Britain. But Italy...such mistrust of me! We could have been great together but you support Egypt FOREVER against me and then still kept me down. Imagine if we had harnessed that energy for mutual expansion!
05 Jan 19 UTC Eric, yup, that's why I'm so sure you could've had a real good chance! I look forward to playing again in your games.
05 Jan 19 UTC I think my mistrust of you Turkey was well-founded and kept me alive. In the first year I offered you Greece for Serbia. You said that would be fine but then supported Ukraine into Serbia. That solidified my alliance with Egypt against you. Later in the game, I pitched friendship and working together and offered you a number of opportunities to win back trust but you never quite lived up to it. Let's be honest finally. All those fleets of yours after Egypt was gone had nowhere to go but against me. The only way you weren't going to harass me is if we needed to work together against a solo which finally almost happened.

I came very close at one point to making an alliance with Britain against Spain and Poland but that was at a time I nearly trusted Turkey to focus northward. I realized soon Turkey was not doing that. If you had only built army in Georgia instead of Greece.
05 Jan 19 UTC Yeah this was kind of an awkward game, I had to make gains on the mainland but couldn’t build many armies at a time. Poland and I went back and forth until he just overpowered me
05 Jan 19 UTC Are you sure it wasn’t France that messed you up? A lot of ppl are talking about France!
05 Jan 19 UTC tales of my misdeeds are sung from Ireland to Cathay
05 Jan 19 UTC Yeah France was apart of my woes aswell
