04 Apr 20 UTC Autumn, 1902: About what Germany?
04 Apr 20 UTC Autumn, 1902: good turkish, soft turkish
little ball of fur
happy turkish, stay calm turkish
purr, purr, purr
04 Apr 20 UTC Autumn, 1902: @England - Turkey was right - the army in St. P makes more sense. I'll try to get a fleet in and also move my armies so that the support is cut.
04 Apr 20 UTC Autumn, 1902: OH was "05:34 PM Italy, I'd like to visit the Acropolis." supposed to be directed at Turkey?
04 Apr 20 UTC Autumn, 1902: Great!
04 Apr 20 UTC Autumn, 1902: I'm so sorry now I understand.
04 Apr 20 UTC Autumn, 1902: @Italy changing F SMY to A SMY as show of good faith now
04 Apr 20 UTC Spring, 1903: @France - any way to work this out? Obviously Brest needs to be returned. DMZ should be honored
04 Apr 20 UTC Spring, 1903: @Turkey Much appreciated!
04 Apr 20 UTC Spring, 1903: I mean I feel like you just built army Kiel to attack me and end the triple.
04 Apr 20 UTC Spring, 1903: I wasn't born yesterday
04 Apr 20 UTC Spring, 1903: @Italy GRE and CON are bouncing in AEG, unless you ask for GRE to follow into ION. But only on your say so.
SER can offer you a support, but hard to make progress with TYR disband. Can you let me know what you'd prefer in terms of medium term strategy direction? Here to help.

Russia thanks for show of faith. I will not be attacking RUM or SEV.
04 Apr 20 UTC Spring, 1903: I was worried you'd think that. Looks. I'm not going to move against you, I'm going to hope that you and England can work something out. I was hoping to support you in the south with that army.
04 Apr 20 UTC Spring, 1903: England isn't going to work anything out. If you're sincere, we need to take him out and work together from there.
04 Apr 20 UTC Spring, 1903: Turkey, take Aeg with Con. Support me into Trieste just for grins.
04 Apr 20 UTC Spring, 1903: @England - any hope of that?
04 Apr 20 UTC Spring, 1903: England hasn't responded to a message I've sent since spring 01, FYI
04 Apr 20 UTC Spring, 1903: @Italy roger roger.
04 Apr 20 UTC Spring, 1903: Pretty obvious he was gunning for me the whole time
04 Apr 20 UTC Spring, 1903: @Italy doing you even one more better, GRE-ALB to support in Fall
04 Apr 20 UTC Spring, 1903: I do not like your suggestion italy
04 Apr 20 UTC @Germany very happy to keep working with you, but If I only attack russia I have no room for expansion
04 Apr 20 UTC GameMaster: Game was drawn due to at all remaining members failing to enter orders.
04 Apr 20 UTC Oof.
04 Apr 20 UTC big oof
04 Apr 20 UTC Well looks like a technical issue.
04 Apr 20 UTC Back when I was a mod I'd never let this happen /s
Don't know what happened. I emailed the mods.
04 Apr 20 UTC Italy - way to get some free points! Thanks for joining when old italy dropped out
04 Apr 20 UTC Good game though all. It was entertaining. Also I would have won.
04 Apr 20 UTC I just made a forum post and took some screenshots of the error message.
04 Apr 20 UTC Germany were you going to attack me?
04 Apr 20 UTC Sorry, all.
04 Apr 20 UTC Italy I can't believe England attacked. I pulled the whole "no fleet build in Marseilles" attack like a champ
04 Apr 20 UTC Sorry france, nothing personal.
04 Apr 20 UTC Fun fact: Brest and Marseilles are the same distance from Tunis. If France offers no fleet Marseilles and builds like I did it's a trap 99% if they know what they're doing.
04 Apr 20 UTC I'd like to think that the pestering from Turkey and I sucked away some of England's thinking time.
04 Apr 20 UTC @France Good point
04 Apr 20 UTC @France - I was really hoping not to. As you could see, I left Ruhr and Bur open for that reason.

Looking at the board and England's movements, I'm guessing we would not be in a position to launch a good attack on England leaving me with no option but to continue fighting Russia with England and leaving you wide open. We might have been able to do well, but when England goes for both France and Russia then you know Germany will be next.
04 Apr 20 UTC A triple is hard in a live game, but I was optimistic. Thanks Turkey for suggesting it
04 Apr 20 UTC It actually felt more feasible because it was not one of us suggesting it, but maybe that's just in my head
04 Apr 20 UTC As Turkey I have a great interest in seeing a Triple despite my cries.
04 Apr 20 UTC Can anyone confirm if that just counted against our RR?
04 Apr 20 UTC @Turkey lol I just now realized I directed my "Acropolis" message at myself. D'oh. Sorry.
04 Apr 20 UTC @France Yes, looks like it did for me.
04 Apr 20 UTC @Italy lol yeah sorry. Really wasn't trying to pull one on ya
04 Apr 20 UTC Yeah and it looks like it counts as a civil disorder too! That's BS I hope the mods can fix that.
04 Apr 20 UTC Moderator: (bo_sox48): I'll correct everyone's RR in here. A couple of you should thank me for breaking the site because you were losing but I'm giving you all 50 points anyway.
04 Apr 20 UTC Thanks
04 Apr 20 UTC Thanks mod (bo_sox48)!
04 Apr 20 UTC Moderator: (bo_sox48): If there are still issues with your reliability rating, please email the mods and we'll correct it.
