Game drawn
15 Jun 19 UTC Autumn, 1902: Actually I am moving to attack you, England. I have no intentions of attacking Germany
22 Jun 19 UTC Spring, 1904: GameMaster: Game was extended due to at least 1 member failing to enter orders and having an excused missed turn available. This has un-readied all orders.
22 Jun 19 UTC Spring, 1904: Sigh
22 Jun 19 UTC Spring, 1904: Wack
22 Jun 19 UTC Spring, 1904: This game is such a disappointment.
22 Jun 19 UTC Spring, 1904: Though I’ll admit I haven’t been holding up my end in the chat, as of late.
22 Jun 19 UTC Spring, 1904: What's there to say when we have to wait so long? Lol
25 Jun 19 UTC Autumn, 1904: Hahaha goddamnit Italy.
26 Jun 19 UTC Autumn, 1904: France, I will help you against the british by capturing edinburgh. This will distract them in the north and reduce their force count
26 Jun 19 UTC Autumn, 1904: Sounds good to me
26 Jun 19 UTC Spring, 1905: germany want to help a bro out?
26 Jun 19 UTC Spring, 1905: What do you propose?
26 Jun 19 UTC Spring, 1905: help out with France and I let you get the lion share of his SCs and help you with the rest of the game as a puppet
26 Jun 19 UTC Spring, 1905: @Germany it seems like it would be much easier for you to go up against your neighbors to the south rather than west. Besides, do you really want to break our alliance for a 3 SC country getting attacked on all sides?
30 Jun 19 UTC Autumn, 1906: Italy, it’s your lucky day. I’m gonna support you in Trieste, Budapest to keep Germany from moving any further easy. I can also support Naples if you want.
30 Jun 19 UTC Autumn, 1906: sure, Thanks
30 Jun 19 UTC Autumn, 1906: France, I would like to knock out Russia. Would you mind moving north sea into London so I can do that next year?
30 Jun 19 UTC Autumn, 1906: No problem
01 Jul 19 UTC Autumn, 1906: Or, France, you allow me to live and I will work with you against the massive german empire. I will eventually move out of uk and give it all to you. If you work with Germany, they will overpower you
01 Jul 19 UTC Autumn, 1906: The most likely outcome of this game is a draw, so having one fewer player makes it a better deal for everyone else. Sorry Russia
01 Jul 19 UTC Autumn, 1906: Hey France, it might be time to start considering the threat of a German solo. They’ll have trouble going much further in my direction, but if they manage to leak into NAO and the Channel (which I suspect they might try after taking Edi), it could spell trouble. Though it might go without saying, I’d also caution that going after Italy could fatally undermine my position here and allow Germany to spill into the Balkans and reach 18 centers.

@Italy: As long as we continue to cooperate, Sevastopol should be the last eastern center lost to Germany. I will hit Apulia, so you can move as you see fit to take back Rome.
01 Jul 19 UTC Autumn, 1906: Well darn \(o.o)/
01 Jul 19 UTC Autumn, 1906: I'm open to the possibility of a draw with France and Turkey. Turkey is very correct in saying it would be quite difficult to move further in that direction. I don't plan on moving past Edinburgh. France has a been a good ally and shouldn't be penalized for that.
03 Jul 19 UTC Spring, 1907: @Germany, are you saying that you would not want a draw including Italy?
03 Jul 19 UTC Spring, 1907: Probably not unless you and Turkey are insistent.
03 Jul 19 UTC Spring, 1907: I wouldn’t say I’m insistent (after all, Italy has said like two words this entire game), but perhaps a bit skeptical. I’d rather not see you get any bigger, Germany and I’d rather not muck up my own position with a reckless attack on Budapest and/or Trieste.
03 Jul 19 UTC Spring, 1907: Ideally Germany shouldn't be bigger than Turkey and I combined. Considering that he's getting somewhat close to that (his 12 vs our 14) it seems reasonable to ask for some assurances so that we can work toward a three way draw
03 Jul 19 UTC Spring, 1907: I'm all ears
04 Jul 19 UTC Autumn, 1907: If there's a way for Turkey and I to split Italy without getting attacked by you, it seems like a three way draw is very doable. Only thing is, I don't know how to ensure that
05 Jul 19 UTC Autumn, 1907: GameMaster: Game was extended due to at least 1 member failing to enter orders and having an excused missed turn available. This has un-readied all orders.
05 Jul 19 UTC Autumn, 1907: New France. Ill suppprt a three way draw anyway I can.
07 Jul 19 UTC Spring, 1908: @France: You’re welcome to take Tunis, I won’t contest it.
08 Jul 19 UTC Spring, 1908: Thanks!
08 Jul 19 UTC Autumn, 1908: @France: Mind supporting Aegean to Ionian this turn?
08 Jul 19 UTC Autumn, 1908: I'll stop advancing after securing Venice. Once Italy and Austria are gone I'll put in my draw vote.
08 Jul 19 UTC Autumn, 1908: Ok ill hold.
08 Jul 19 UTC Spring, 1909: Disappointing to see a fleet in Ankara
09 Jul 19 UTC Spring, 1909: Just a bit of insurance against funny business in Italy or the Balkans.
09 Jul 19 UTC Spring, 1909: Please dont contest piedmont. I'd like to turn it blue.
09 Jul 19 UTC Spring, 1909: I think we can wrap up the game this year if we play our cards right.

@Germany: I’m happy to keep F Ank in port as long as there’s no problems. I’d appreciate it if you could cut Italian support in Rome this Spring.

@France: If you want Rome, it’s yours. Otherwise I’ll take it in the fall.
09 Jul 19 UTC Spring, 1909: Will do
09 Jul 19 UTC Spring, 1909: Thanks
09 Jul 19 UTC Support for TYS-Rom is set.
09 Jul 19 UTC Same
09 Jul 19 UTC Thanks!
09 Jul 19 UTC GG Italy

I’ll put up my draw vote as soon as retreats go through.
10 Jul 19 UTC GG all. I think I had an opportunity to move for the solo a year or two ago, but wasn't quite comfortable with being able to defend all fronts. This works too though.
10 Jul 19 UTC Ayyy Steve! I was France in that Classic Dip, No Excuses game. Nice playing with you again. And I didn’t bounce myself out of a Center this time!

I think I saw that chance for a German solo too. I knew we were in trouble as soon as you took Vienna. That’s part of why I was so reluctant about getting rid of Italy. I knew I could hold you back if they were kept alive, but wasn’t sure I could take Trieste and Budapest without giving you an opportunity to solo.

You and New France were bright spots in an otherwise kind of shitty game. I’m happy with how I did, but nobody talked and it was just kind of a bore until the last few years. No more 5-10 pt games for me, I think.
10 Jul 19 UTC Glad I could help. Even though I didnt do much.
10 Jul 19 UTC Haha, yeah I remember that. Definitely a better result for you this time. Good gig for you Silverblaze, taking over and pulling a draw.
