28 May 20 UTC Spring, 1907: Moderator: (goldfinger0303): About to be another NMR. I'll get in touch with the player
28 May 20 UTC Spring, 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.
29 May 20 UTC Spring, 1907: Moderator: (goldfinger0303): Paused until Monday
01 Jun 20 UTC Spring, 1907: Moderator: (goldfinger0303): Unpaused
04 Jun 20 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.
04 Jun 20 UTC Autumn, 1907: Ah come on, naughty Russia.
05 Jun 20 UTC Autumn, 1907: Are we getting a replacement Russia? Or does it not matter due to the position he is in now?
05 Jun 20 UTC Autumn, 1907: Russia can still have some impact on the next few turns perhaps.
05 Jun 20 UTC Autumn, 1907: Moderator: (goldfinger0303): Apologies I didn't catch this everyone. There will be a replacement.
07 Jun 20 UTC Autumn, 1907: Moderator: (goldfinger0303): Hi all. Sub will be coming in tomorrow.
07 Jun 20 UTC Autumn, 1907: Moderator: (goldfinger0303): Hi all, sub is in. Thank you for your patience.
07 Jun 20 UTC Autumn, 1907: Implying we have been patient :P
07 Jun 20 UTC Autumn, 1907: Anyone that touches Prussia will invoke the undying hatred of all Russians for the next twenty generations.
16 Jun 20 UTC Autumn, 1908: I'll need to think long and hard about what and where I should build. Very difficult choice for me. Might take the whole 36 hours to decide
/s
16 Jun 20 UTC Autumn, 1908: You monster!
16 Jun 20 UTC Autumn, 1908: Monster? No, that is a very important decision, he must take his time.
16 Jun 20 UTC Autumn, 1908: I ended up spending a grand total of 4 seconds on it. Less time than I expected.
16 Jun 20 UTC Autumn, 1908: Such tactical mastery! How can we ever win a game against this genius?
16 Jun 20 UTC Autumn, 1908: I agree, France. Time for everyone to surrender!
17 Jun 20 UTC Autumn, 1908: Fleet Budapest is the obvious choice here
17 Jun 20 UTC Autumn, 1908: I'll have my Austrians pick it up and THROW it into the Med xD
17 Jun 20 UTC Autumn, 1908: We'll never see it coming!
17 Jun 20 UTC Autumn, 1908: You could always waive the build, and save it for later.
23 Jun 20 UTC Autumn, 1909: Now the whole game comes down to stopping the solo. If Turkey solos, they get a point. Make sure that doesn't happen or we lower all our own standing.
23 Jun 20 UTC Autumn, 1909: Also, there is the secondary goal of leaving Prussia purple.
23 Jun 20 UTC Autumn, 1909: Yes.

Goal 1: Stop the solo

Goal 2: Keep Prussia purple.
05 Jul 20 UTC Spring, 1912: Hello. I am voting for a draw as I have neither a tactical nor a diplomatic opportunity to win. This has been an interesting game, and this is a good time to draw as it allows my good friend Austria to survive. Thanks for playing.
06 Jul 20 UTC Spring, 1912: I’m all in favor of keeping Austria alive. No point in dragging this thing out given the (only-a-)winner-takes-all tournament format.
06 Jul 20 UTC Spring, 1912: Moderator: (goldfinger0303): Unpaused. Sorry for the delay. I had thought Kestas was going to unpause everything in one go this morning, so held off.
07 Jul 20 UTC Spring, 1912: Turkey made their solo attempt, it failed, but I don't think anyone has the ability to take board top from them. Curious to see Germany and France refusing to draw...
08 Jul 20 UTC Spring, 1912: 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.
08 Jul 20 UTC Spring, 1912: Moderator: (goldfinger0303): Well, this is your Mulligan for the early unpause.
10 Jul 20 UTC Autumn, 1912: Throwing out there that Turkey took down his draw vote. He's making a run for it.
10 Jul 20 UTC Autumn, 1912: He had one up. You and France are the reason the game is still going...
12 Jul 20 UTC Autumn, 1912: I hope he wins, though I think it’s doubtful that he makes it past the stalemate line.
13 Jul 20 UTC Do you think you can make it past the line, Turkey?
13 Jul 20 UTC Well he thinks it's worth extending the game to try at least.
14 Jul 20 UTC Nothing stopping you from putting up a draw vote, France.
14 Jul 20 UTC He's had a draw vote up for a while now iirc. Everyone has a draw up but Turkey, now.
14 Jul 20 UTC Nothing stopping you from checking who has draw votes in, Italy.
14 Jul 20 UTC Let's play this turn and then we'll call it a day if no progress is made. Sounds fair?
14 Jul 20 UTC Lmao that’s my bad. Glad I said something and you pointed out the obvious to me. I don’t know how I missed your draw vote. Well I’ll switch back to trying to stay alive then instead of throwing to Turkey.
14 Jul 20 UTC Supporting Piedmont to Venice
14 Jul 20 UTC There we go! And we're back.
15 Jul 20 UTC Okay, that's enough.
15 Jul 20 UTC Good game!
15 Jul 20 UTC Good game folks.
15 Jul 20 UTC Good game everyone. Thought there was a moment I could try to finish top board with something, but good on Turkey for keeping the solo push open to get the top finish.
15 Jul 20 UTC Gg
15 Jul 20 UTC Good game! I was hoping I could push through, but clearly didn't think it through properly. Thing is, there was very little that could go wrong for me or Germany, so I figured it was worth a shot.
