Game drawn
01 Mar 11 UTC Autumn, 1902: Very much so. Eliminated in 1902
01 Mar 11 UTC Autumn, 1902: Ha - don't think I suffered that even in my early days here...
01 Mar 11 UTC Autumn, 1902: Heh, sorry....
01 Mar 11 UTC Autumn, 1902: Yeah sorry from me as well. (Though I will add it would have been a different game entirely had you opened differently. )
02 Mar 11 UTC Autumn, 1902: I know - pretty much self inflicted, this one...
02 Mar 11 UTC Autumn, 1902: Ah well who knows we might regret our attack on you yet. Which I imagine would be nice revenge. xD
03 Mar 11 UTC Autumn, 1902: My internet connection is not guaranteed till sunday...
Would you guys mind a pause?
03 Mar 11 UTC Autumn, 1902: Nah I'm okay with a pause.
03 Mar 11 UTC Autumn, 1902: sure
03 Mar 11 UTC Autumn, 1902: As Russia has submitted build order I will not enter pause as I will be out of this game very soon.
06 Mar 11 UTC Spring, 1903: thanks guys!
06 Mar 11 UTC Spring, 1903: No worries you'd have done the same for any of us =)
06 Mar 11 UTC Spring, 1903: Woops sorry guys. Unpaused...
13 Mar 11 UTC Spring, 1904: No one will be my friend... :(
13 Mar 11 UTC Spring, 1904: I'll be your friend!
13 Mar 11 UTC Spring, 1904: Woohoo I got a friend!
14 Mar 11 UTC Spring, 1904: I'll be your friend too - just a little bit dead at the moment...
14 Mar 11 UTC Spring, 1904: dead friends are cool too. as long as I don't see them :).
17 Mar 11 UTC Autumn, 1904: I have word that Russia went CD in another game and missed a turn here so is being replaced.
17 Mar 11 UTC Autumn, 1904: That makes sense. Too bad.
17 Mar 11 UTC Autumn, 1904: Anyone up for some Vodka?
New replacement Russia, here. Unfortunately, I will be busy later this afternoon, and I know you have all been waiting for this game to start, but I hope you can give me a little bit to acquaint myself with what has gone on in this game?

Also, since I am a new player and each player plays the game differently, All previous alliances, grudges, relationships, affairs, and lies of the previous russia are null and void. It doesn't mean we can't re-create them all over again, but I'd like to start from a clean slate, especially when I start out already in a precocious situation (from first glance).

Everyone ok with all of that?
17 Mar 11 UTC Autumn, 1904: yup. i've voted unpause. hit it when you're ready.
19 Mar 11 UTC Autumn, 1904: Typical - Russia Mk I wipes me out then does a runner...
Good luck Russia Mk II :-)
21 Mar 11 UTC Autumn, 1904: Sorry, was a hectic week and was waiting for a couple people to respond. Game on!
21 Mar 11 UTC Autumn, 1904: Sorry, was a hectic week and was waiting for a couple people to respond. Game on!
24 Mar 11 UTC Autumn, 1905: ok, did my best to spread my SCs out to everyone... hold the line fellas
26 Mar 11 UTC Autumn, 1905: Farewell
26 Mar 11 UTC Autumn, 1905: You as well, France. Good luck in your future games.
30 Mar 11 UTC Autumn, 1906: good luck to the rest of you.
03 Apr 11 UTC Autumn, 1907: Our center count is 7, 8, 9, 10. :)
03 Apr 11 UTC Autumn, 1907: But you all should be scared of Germany... because 7 8 9...
03 Apr 11 UTC Autumn, 1907: No no, Only england should be scared of Germany, the rest of us are fine. ;)
03 Apr 11 UTC Autumn, 1907: Well noone should be scared as long as he keeps NMR'ing. If it looks like he is going to CD, someone please send a message to webdipmasters@gmail.com to pause the game...
03 Apr 11 UTC Autumn, 1907: He was messaging leading up until the last move.
03 Apr 11 UTC Autumn, 1907: A mod will pause it in like 10 hours if germany hasn't made a move.
03 Apr 11 UTC Autumn, 1907: Sorry about that guys, I somehow managed to overlook the last phase. Also I wouldn't have gone CD today, I entered retreats once I saw my stupidity.
07 Apr 11 UTC Autumn, 1908: I vote draw
07 Apr 11 UTC Autumn, 1908: Kill Germany and I'd be down for a three way draw
07 Apr 11 UTC Autumn, 1908: I'm all for a draw now!
07 Apr 11 UTC Autumn, 1908: 3 way, 4 way. . . the difference is negligible! :)
13 Apr 11 UTC Spring, 1909: Hey all -- its TrustMe -- Turkey asked me to sub him, so I am pausing the game. The new player should be joining shortly. So, feel free to unpause once Turkey has been filled.
13 Apr 11 UTC Spring, 1909: Okay.
13 Apr 11 UTC Spring, 1909: Greetings everyone. My vote for unpause is in.
In the near future I will read some of the past coorespondence to help me act as stand-in diplomat, but if you prefer to leave me a "state-of-the-union" so to speak based on our current relationship the all the better.

It does seem like this game is wrapping up nicely, with plans for a draw eh?
13 Apr 11 UTC Spring, 1909: Btw, before I put Turkey in CD he had a vote to draw.
14 Apr 11 UTC Spring, 1909: Don't forget we have to unpause to get the game going again.
15 Apr 11 UTC Spring, 1909: It's just England now.
16 Apr 11 UTC Sorry guys, I forgot about this. My bad!
17 Apr 11 UTC I really wanted to try for a win but with everyone else pushing for a draw is was looking hard and harder to achieve by the turn.

So drawn.
17 Apr 11 UTC Familiar faces all around. Interesting game. And lots of fun. Thanks guys.

I kind wanted to play on as well. I was away and my sitter was taking care of this for me. I think some interesting stuff might have happened here but seeing who was playing i don't think we would have had anyone solo. I, for one, am sure I had no chance for tunis or Moscow and would have been hard pressed to even get Munich.

And Turkey controlling Spain so long was making me very nervous.
18 Apr 11 UTC As I look at this more closely I kind of wish I did play on. Too bad I voted draw before I left.

I still think it is unlikely I should have won - I just think I shouldn't have drawn at 14 with the two of you having not yet shown the ability to work together.
