07 Feb 19 UTC Autumn, 2004: Poland, your moves all scream "going for solo". Unless you move out of a bunch of territories immediately, I'm going to assume that's your goal and respond as such.
07 Feb 19 UTC Autumn, 2004: Germany, make sure your build is in Berlin.
07 Feb 19 UTC Autumn, 2004: Poland if you don't actually intend to solo then I ask you to skip your builds as a sign of good faith.
07 Feb 19 UTC Autumn, 2004: I´ll do that. I can just agree, Italy, I don´t like the moves to Finland and Norwegian Sea. If you build next to our front lines, I feel forced to bring me into defensive position.
07 Feb 19 UTC Autumn, 2004: If I was hoping to solo I would have started a couple of years ago. I would prefer not to make Spain's predictions come true.
I may have some fun with you but we can finish once Spain is out.
08 Feb 19 UTC Spring, 2005: Germany: I will support Madrid to Seville.
09 Feb 19 UTC Spring, 2005: Will be interesting to see if Poland can pull off the solo here. Kind of an odd warning “have some fun with you,” beforehand. Might have been able to lull Germany into a sense of security for a little longer if not for that.
09 Feb 19 UTC Spring, 2005: Think it's not a realistic chance.
09 Feb 19 UTC Spring, 2005: No, probably not. This map is especially hard to solo just because of the sheer density of the provinces. You can see someone obviously setting up for a solo long before they're ready to, as Italy and Germany did here.
09 Feb 19 UTC Spring, 2005: Your best chance is pulling off some really creative orders. I came very close to a solo on this map with lots of tactical retreats, unit shuffling, educated guesses based on my opponents movement patterns, and a healthy amount of luck. That last center is always a pain to get.
09 Feb 19 UTC Spring, 2005: I have a friend who plays this map frequently has come within one center of a solo around 6 or 7 times now, but wasn't able to pull any of them off.
10 Feb 19 UTC Autumn, 2005: Can I get support to Gibraltar, Germany?
11 Feb 19 UTC Autumn, 2005: Italy: Well done.
Germany: Recommend you don't leave yourself too exposed to Italy. (Appreciate that that advice may seem a little self serving.)
11 Feb 19 UTC Autumn, 2005: Sorry, Gibraltar for me makes more sence.
11 Feb 19 UTC Autumn, 2005: It was more to hasten the end of Spain than anything else
11 Feb 19 UTC Autumn, 2005: Attacking Germany would be extremely foolish at this point for me. A solid focus on one front will save this game, nothing else.
11 Feb 19 UTC Autumn, 2005: Poland has a really weak front line in the balkans, and you’ve already broke through. Barring a miracle, I’d say this is a comfortable three way draw game.
11 Feb 19 UTC Autumn, 2005: You do need to be wary about Poland gaining naval control of the eastern med this turn though. They have the option to build enough fleets there to break through.
11 Feb 19 UTC Autumn, 2005: ? dude, have you no real life? Nothing better to do? Seriously?
12 Feb 19 UTC Autumn, 2005: Well now that you mention it, I could go back to harassing you. I was enjoying just analyzing the game though.
12 Feb 19 UTC Autumn, 2005: I would love to chat about it actually, Turkey, but I cannot as it might tip my hand.
12 Feb 19 UTC Spring, 2006: As I suspected, Poland opted to block the mainland rather than try to force the Med more.
12 Feb 19 UTC Spring, 2006: I see, understanble. Plenty of time for analysis after the game anyways.
So spain, hows the weather in Morocco? Bright and sunny? You’re soon to join me in losersville!
12 Feb 19 UTC Spring, 2006: Spain: Can you support me to Eastern Med
12 Feb 19 UTC Spring, 2006: sure, but it will certainly be cut.
12 Feb 19 UTC Spring, 2006: and therefore worthless.
13 Feb 19 UTC Spring, 2006: Ironically, Spain, I would have found the fleet in Algeria more of a bother than the Libyan sea. Libyan sea won't get in my way, whereas Algeria would have forced me to leave two fleets on guard duty until it was destroyed.
13 Feb 19 UTC Spring, 2006: While Spain was playing 4th dimensional risk, Italy was playing 13th Hyper-dimension quantum diplomacy.
13 Feb 19 UTC Spring, 2006: And Russia is up there, playing dress-up, pretending to be north Poland.
14 Feb 19 UTC Autumn, 2006: Missed that Baltic could escape to Lithuania!
14 Feb 19 UTC Autumn, 2006: Latvia
14 Feb 19 UTC Autumn, 2006: Italy Spain can you fix this on one go !
14 Feb 19 UTC Autumn, 2006: Sorry. Italy/ Germany.
15 Feb 19 UTC Autumn, 2006: Nicely done, Britain!
15 Feb 19 UTC Autumn, 2006: Lol. Germany**
Dunno why Poland and I BOTH got your name wrong xD
15 Feb 19 UTC Autumn, 2006: Uhh not to break up the party but can we eliminate the wretched war criminal that goes by the name of “Spain?”
15 Feb 19 UTC Autumn, 2006: we? you mean the three guys about to draw, or the dead guy?
15 Feb 19 UTC Autumn, 2006: Uhhhhhh excuse me but I still control Bosnia and Macedonia fool
15 Feb 19 UTC Autumn, 2006: I can still win it baby
15 Feb 19 UTC Autumn, 2006: Turkey, you are a very odd sort of guy.
15 Feb 19 UTC Autumn, 2006: I keep on mistaking where the fleet in Gibraltar is. It looks on the map like it is in SoG. I was thinking you could have eliminated Spain last turn.
16 Feb 19 UTC Autumn, 2007: I'm going for Morocco, Germany.
16 Feb 19 UTC Autumn, 2007: Do that.
16 Feb 19 UTC Autumn, 2007: Dab on Spain’s miserable existence.
18 Feb 19 UTC Autumn, 2007: My draw vote is in.
18 Feb 19 UTC Autumn, 2007: GLORY HALLELUJAH
18 Feb 19 UTC Autumn, 2007: End this miserable match. Italy, Germany, very well played this game. GG.
18 Feb 19 UTC Autumn, 2007: Mine is also in. Happy not to be beaten up any further.
Well played.
18 Feb 19 UTC GG All!
