21 Mar 21 UTC Spring, 1911: Wow. Russia gets a clear path to a solo win now.
Disappointed in you Italy and Germany. Your hubris and lack of cooperation is your own undoing, and like me you’ll get “zero” points. Coffee is for winners after all.
21 Mar 21 UTC Spring, 1911: The finger wagging and back seat driving is much appreciated, first out, but try to keep in mind it's not over until it's over.
21 Mar 21 UTC Spring, 1911: Austria was first out tbh, and was also the one that sandbagged my existence by reeking for Russia. But cest la vie.
And don’t dodge, you deserve the finger wagging. :). Russia will grab two from you and then just needs two more.
22 Mar 21 UTC Spring, 1911: Nope, Turkey, you went out before me. I was second out.
22 Mar 21 UTC Spring, 1911: Only victors get to rewrite history. I literally got kicked from the game for inactivity and still had a unit after you had zero!
22 Mar 21 UTC Spring, 1911: Oh you two!! You were both finished off autumn of ‘06. Haha
22 Mar 21 UTC Spring, 1911: Austria, you are wrong. We were both logged as defeated on 7th March. You were kicked prior to that as the tie breaker. :)
22 Mar 21 UTC Spring, 1911: lol idk I think you've both earned it.

But look, either way, you're completely wrong. Russia betrayed me too early, they are screwed and Germany is going to win. Russia was able to betray me not because of 'hubris' but because they seemed smart enough to not jump the gun like this.
22 Mar 21 UTC Spring, 1911: Russia never betrays too early or too late. Russia betrays precisely when they mean to.
22 Mar 21 UTC Spring, 1911: Idk, you fleet just got sunk Russia. You were always a jumpy diplomat.
23 Mar 21 UTC Spring, 1911: you turned on me a little early. gave italy his chance to grow
23 Mar 21 UTC Spring, 1911: Just sitting here, surrounded by a Greek chorus of betrayed former allies.
23 Mar 21 UTC Autumn, 1911: accurate
23 Mar 21 UTC Autumn, 1911: I am proud of everyone still checking this though. Anyone know who England was? He was hilarious
23 Mar 21 UTC Autumn, 1911: He enjoyed chaos and unpredictability. I have my guesses
24 Mar 21 UTC Autumn, 1911: Iiiiiinteresting.
24 Mar 21 UTC Autumn, 1911: No matter how this finishes out, this is going to be one of my all time favorite games.
24 Mar 21 UTC Autumn, 1911: You played well, glad you enjoyed it!
24 Mar 21 UTC Autumn, 1911: Too well, I’m still salty as balls over the way I was treated in the corner. :)
In seriousness though, it has been a game to remember (sobs gently)
24 Mar 21 UTC Autumn, 1911: Hark! It is I, ENGLAND. Nobody puts Turkey in the corner!...no wait, Russia and Austria did. Your tanks were pulled back and forth, BACK AND FORTH, by Goats!...yes, GOATS! Those poor, poor gangly goats! and your fleets...you had a row boat at one point, I think? No wonder thou weren’t victorious, thus abdicating the Throne.

Best,
ENGLAND, Still ENGLESS and No LAND.
24 Mar 21 UTC Autumn, 1911: Wooowww England...you speak like a Tory, with pockets of cultural insensitivities shamelessly in your remarks.
I could have prevailed, save Austria’s loyal servitude of the vodka king.
You still have pink land up there. As I have Armenia and Syria to this day.
24 Mar 21 UTC Autumn, 1911: Pish, posh, Turkey! PISH POSH! I am merely talking Turkey about Turkey to Turkey! Squabbling in the darkness shall yield nothing profitable. The birds have flocked afar from Turkey, fearing they will become the next thanksgiving FEAST.

On another note...Italy, Italy...ITALY! What happened? I supplied you with the finest brown ale from Britannia, yet your once-mighty empire has succumb to the squalor from rotten tomatoes?

Best,
ENGLESSNOLAND
24 Mar 21 UTC Autumn, 1911: LOL, Classic turkey. always blaming Austria and he attacked me with Italy sealing my doom and his. Then he wanted me to back him as he was dead in the water so I could die faster. I took my statistical best chance which was resetting my relationship with Russia. I never had an opportunity to grow after that. My mistake was agreeing to work with Turkey and attacking Russia as they asked on the turn they betrayed me instead of accepting Russia's offer to get 2/3rds of turkey
24 Mar 21 UTC Autumn, 1911: I have no idea who Austria is, but they are stubbornly wrong. We’ll have to go hang out and..I dunno...golf... and hash it out when identities are revealed.
25 Mar 21 UTC Spring, 1912: From an outside perspective- it always looked like Austria and turkey were in battle. And then Russia helped destroy turkey and Italy helped destroy Austria...leaving no turkey nor Austria. The ol’ lose-lose situation
26 Mar 21 UTC Spring, 1912: Well played gentlemen. It appears that this is our final year together, and I have enjoyed this game immensely.
26 Mar 21 UTC Spring, 1912: This was wild; super fun game throughout.
26 Mar 21 UTC Autumn, 1912: Does the chat log remain after the game is over? If not I need to screencap some things for the post-game debrief.
26 Mar 21 UTC Autumn, 1912: This was a fun game. What should we do for the post game? I feel like there should be a new tradition that when a game finishes we all grab lunch or something and debrief
26 Mar 21 UTC Autumn, 1912: I like that Italy. For the four (that I know) who are in Shawnee this should definitely happen. For the rest let’s see. :)
26 Mar 21 UTC Autumn, 1912: Oh and how I cannot wait for the debrief. Indulging in unlimited BREADSTICKS for hours at the Shawnee Olive Garden, we will reminisce of glorious times past, laughing, rejoicing, wailing, crying, sadness, ire, betrayal, defeat. All over the course of 8-9 hours, but the breadsticks endure, mending broken relationships and strengthening good ones. That, my friends,...and Fr*nce, is the Power of Breadsticks.

Best,
ENGLESSNOLAND
26 Mar 21 UTC Autumn, 1912: I’m dying. Hilarious England.
But alas you played your hand, shawnee doesn’t have an Olive Garden. One would have to trudge over to even more boring Overland Park for that.
26 Mar 21 UTC Autumn, 1912: And the team(s) who dies first have to buy the drinks!!
26 Mar 21 UTC Autumn, 1912: my friends and fr*ance... hahahahahah what a perfect sign off :D :D
26 Mar 21 UTC Autumn, 1912: @Russia - I just checked another previous game, I can still see my chats. looks like I persists for at least a month
26 Mar 21 UTC Autumn, 1912: I shall bring the last of the BROWN ALE.
26 Mar 21 UTC Autumn, 1912: *it persists
29 Mar 21 UTC Spring, 1913: Is it oveR?
29 Mar 21 UTC Spring, 1913: *shakes head slowly*
If Germany holds and goes +1 then yes.
29 Mar 21 UTC Spring, 1913: To the peanut gallery, who should I defend: Munich or Berlin?

30 Mar 21 UTC Could this be the end?!
30 Mar 21 UTC Unless...maybe...Italy and I have been allied the whole time, and my "betrayal" was a ruse!
30 Mar 21 UTC Ready up the moves? I may not make it to 11 tonight. Who am I kidding? I’ll be up
30 Mar 21 UTC lol
30 Mar 21 UTC Gg
30 Mar 21 UTC Good game all!
30 Mar 21 UTC Great game. Despite screwing up early, which greatly hurt my chances of winning, I really enjoyed playing in this one.
30 Mar 21 UTC i fcuked up so hard. it hurt but good game all. should have just taken turkey down early and went after russia while they were weak.
