24 Mar 20 UTC Autumn, 1910: England and Russia are helping Italy to solo.
26 Mar 20 UTC Autumn, 1910: gg
27 Mar 20 UTC Autumn, 1910: Tournament Director: (goldfinger0303): Incoming NMR. I've already pinged the player
27 Mar 20 UTC Autumn, 1910: 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.
27 Mar 20 UTC Autumn, 1910: Hope whoever missed the turn is OK. I've readied up, in case others want to skip the wait.
27 Mar 20 UTC Autumn, 1910: That was my fault this time, thought I had more time, sorry.
27 Mar 20 UTC Autumn, 1910: And thanks to Goldfinger for contacting me
27 Mar 20 UTC Autumn, 1910: I readied up
28 Mar 20 UTC Spring, 1911: Might as well put this in the global chat. We need to firm up the stalemate line and then draw. Best way I see to do that is to make sure I take back Marseilles right after Piedmont or GoL takes it, and make sure that Italy is pushed out and kept out of Munich. Moscow and Warsaw can be help without too much trouble. I'm ordering the following:

F MAO convoy A Lon-Gas
A Bur support A Berlin-Mun
A Ruhr support A Berlin-Mun

Everything else I'll figure something sensible out but I think those are the important ones for the rest of you to know.

England, please send your army London to Gascony. Please have Kiel support Berlin to Munich. Russia, I guess you can go ahead and take Berlin, but I trust your judgment.

Next season, with armies in Gascony and Burgundy, Italy kicked out of Munich, and a fleet in Spain (sc), I think I'll either be reasonably well assured of kicking Italy out of Marseilles or else being able to hold him at that point.

If you guys prefer to persist in trying to eliminate Germany, I'm comfortable throwing the game to Italy, though it may not even be necessary as I suspect he'd have a good chance of winning in that scenario without my deliberate intervention. We should just wrap this thing up.

If there's anything I'm missing here, please let me know.
29 Mar 20 UTC Spring, 1911: Update: I forgot Marseilles needs somewhere to retreat, woops. Forget about the convoy to Gascony, England, this is less complicated than I thought. My other orders are the same, though.
29 Mar 20 UTC Autumn, 1911: I’m order support of Berlin to Munich again
29 Mar 20 UTC Autumn, 1911: North Sea should go to channel for when I need to destroy one of my fleets (probably) after losing Marseilles.
31 Mar 20 UTC Autumn, 1911: The people of Munich rejoice in their hour of liberation.
03 Apr 20 UTC Autumn, 1911: 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 Apr 20 UTC Spring, 1912: Well that’s it, then, I think Italy wins?
05 Apr 20 UTC Spring, 1912: Not quite but very likely.
05 Apr 20 UTC Spring, 1912: Ah never mind, we can take back Moscow. Though that Sev unit was an army at first.
05 Apr 20 UTC Spring, 1912: But we probably can’t do that without losing Warsaw at the same time.
05 Apr 20 UTC Spring, 1912: If I have a line to guarantee Marseilles and Spain, I’d be very grateful to hear about it!
05 Apr 20 UTC Spring, 1912: Looks like I really did blow it with that misorder of mine.
05 Apr 20 UTC Spring, 1912: Egg Italy. A win for you.
08 Apr 20 UTC Autumn, 1912: Nicely done, all. Maybe we can still do this.
08 Apr 20 UTC Autumn, 1912: Oh no! This is looking bad for me now. Readied up in case people want to get this done faster (but no pressure, obviously).
08 Apr 20 UTC Autumn, 1912: Is this sarcasm?
08 Apr 20 UTC Autumn, 1912: No - I definitely thought my best hope of winning was winning the coinflip and taking Spain there.
08 Apr 20 UTC Autumn, 1912: Well by my estimation you've got at least one more coin flip you might win. But I think I'll keep guessing correctly, letting my little Spanish fleet do its best impression of Horatius on the bridge for as long as it takes.
08 Apr 20 UTC Autumn, 1912: Excuse me, Horatius "at" the bridge
08 Apr 20 UTC Autumn, 1912: I had to search for that reference, but it was worth it. I hope that, like Horatius, you are provided as much of the public land as you yourself can plow around in one day with a yoke of oxen.
11 Apr 20 UTC Spring, 1913: What the fuck is going on... England and France what are you doing?
11 Apr 20 UTC Spring, 1913: France guessed wrong in Iberia. That's all
11 Apr 20 UTC Spring, 1913: Why are you attacking him?
11 Apr 20 UTC Spring, 1913: I'm not. Since Portugal was crucial for defending Spain a unit had to go there. Since I took one of his SCs, he took one of mine. It was prearranged. Mun is secure as is War and Berlin. It was Spain that was the gamble. We lost.
11 Apr 20 UTC Spring, 1913: maybe
11 Apr 20 UTC Spring, 1913: I guessed wrong and I misordered yet again too. Gascony was supposed to support Burgundy’s move into Marseilles, not support hold Marseilles. It doesn’t matter because Pie was SHing it anyway, but sorry again for my sloppy play. I’m distracted lately I guess.
11 Apr 20 UTC Spring, 1913: I think what probably happened was I meant to switch Gas to SH Spain but I only changed the order from “support move” to “support hold”. So in theory I guessed correctly but still managed to screw it up.
11 Apr 20 UTC Now all that being said I think we can still possibly take back Spain.
11 Apr 20 UTC Ah... never mind we probably can’t
11 Apr 20 UTC I've readied up. GG all. Way to pull out the win Italy.
11 Apr 20 UTC Good game everyone. I'm readying up a very boring set of defensive moves.
11 Apr 20 UTC Just checking, nobody sees a way to displace Italy, right?
11 Apr 20 UTC I've readied up in any event.
11 Apr 20 UTC Good game all (and to the extent that parts of it were NOT good, I take full responsibility), and congratulations Italy.
11 Apr 20 UTC Pretty sure it's a nice simple one... I have GoL and WMS to hold Spain, Piedmont to hold Marseilles, and Ukraine and SEV to hold Moscow.
11 Apr 20 UTC I've readied.
11 Apr 20 UTC I've readied
12 Apr 20 UTC Moderator: (goldfinger0303): With forgiveness from Russia, I am going to go ahead and process this turn. Writing a big update on the tournament page and want to give an accurate score
12 Apr 20 UTC I declare this game invalid due to mod interference. Italy still had time to decide he didn’t want to win.

(Nice job, Teccles)
12 Apr 20 UTC Congrats!
12 Apr 20 UTC Very surprised that England was such a notable player like The Czech.

A pleasure to play with the rest of you.
12 Apr 20 UTC Thanks everyone! It's my first solo, so I'm quite happy. It was a very fun game. I was particularly impressed by how everyone stayed engaged and tried to make it into the draw (which was also useful for my solo charge!).
