13 Feb 12 UTC Spring, 1901: lol i think the globle messages are broken

13 Feb 12 UTC Spring, 1901: everytime the page refreshes it posts again lol
16 Feb 12 UTC Autumn, 1901: Little less than 3 hours. May want to conclude your moves.
16 Feb 12 UTC Autumn, 1901: In Soviet Russia. Moves conclude you.
16 Feb 12 UTC Autumn, 1901: In other news: the Turks can apparently see the future.
16 Feb 12 UTC Autumn, 1901: Relevant 'quote of the turn':

"It is said that if you know your enemies and know yourself, you will not be imperiled in a hundred battles; if you do not know your enemies but do know yourself, you will win one and lose one; if you do not know your enemies nor yourself, you will be imperiled in every single battle." - Sun Tzu, 'The Art of War'
16 Feb 12 UTC Autumn, 1901: UK y u enter orders but no go ready? I KILL YOU
18 Feb 12 UTC Spring, 1902: If i move to block the Bel support...shouldnt that have bounced back and stopped the move...I will remember this next time. Also shouldnt the transport at black sea should have been stopped by fleet at sev...canceling the fight at Rumania.
19 Feb 12 UTC Autumn, 1902: Nope. The move into Holland was legitimate. You can't interrupt coordinated attacks in such a way. If you had a 2nd army in the area you could have hit the support coming from Belgium and then your fleet in Holland would have been in a 1 vs 1 situation against my fleet and I would have bounced. I'm not sure what happened in Rumania. I would have guessed the same as you. Sevastopol should have interrupted the Convoy in the Black Sea. This website has a much better FAQ and tutorial then the other one, so check in there as it may be explained.
19 Feb 12 UTC Autumn, 1902: OK. So they actually address this in the FAQ and it says the fleet that is convoying must be dislodged for the Convoy to fail. So when a fleet convoys it is both a holding operation and a convoy operation. Also note if the convoy is dislodged, then the army will be redirected automatically if another convoy route exists.

Like I said this website has a very good FAQ and it can be found under the Help menu at the top-left of the page.
19 Feb 12 UTC Autumn, 1902: Alright thanks
20 Feb 12 UTC Autumn, 1902: Quote 'of the turn':

"No country can act wisely simultaneously in every part of the globe at every moment of time." - Henry Kissinger
20 Feb 12 UTC Autumn, 1902: France is officially Declaring War on the Countries of Italy and Germany.
20 Feb 12 UTC Autumn, 1902: “You all know the mission, and what is at stake. I have come to trust each of you with my life -- but I have also heard murmurs of discontent. I share your concerns. We are trained for espionage; we would be legends, but the records are sealed. Glory in battle is not our way. Think of our heroes; the Silent Step, who defeated a nation with a single shot. Or the Ever Alert, who kept armies at bay with hidden facts. These giants do not seem to give us solace here, but they are not all that we are. Before the network, there was the fleet. Before diplomacy, there were soldiers!
Our influence will stop The Italians; in the battle today, we will hold the line!”
~Captain Kirrahe, Notable French Military Official, giving a speech to the worried French masses after the official Declarations of War.
21 Feb 12 UTC Autumn, 1902: Germany? What have I done to you? It seems I am some sort of hate conductor.
23 Feb 12 UTC Spring, 1903: well i missed a turn. woops
27 Feb 12 UTC Autumn, 1903: sigh inactiveness sure makes the game.
27 Feb 12 UTC Autumn, 1903: “Of all manifestations of power, restraint impresses men the most.”
27 Feb 12 UTC Autumn, 1903: ...
28 Feb 12 UTC Autumn, 1903: To be free is not merely to cast off one's chains, but to live in a way that respects and enhances the freedom of others.
09 Mar 12 UTC Autumn, 1905: I am supporting your attack on trieste. I will support your dence in munich as well. Let me know if it will be a wasted effort
09 Mar 12 UTC Autumn, 1905: I believe i just screwed up
09 Mar 12 UTC Autumn, 1905: Or in fact you are a genius attempting to misdirect us.
09 Mar 12 UTC Autumn, 1905: ya, lets go with that.
14 Mar 12 UTC Spring, 1907: Hmm instead of creating a coalition to fight Turkey you decided to turn on each other.
14 Mar 12 UTC Spring, 1907: What you got against Turkey?
14 Mar 12 UTC Spring, 1907: Nothing really. I just don't understand why they would do that. Stabbing France in the back just sealed Turkey's Victory.
14 Mar 12 UTC Spring, 1907: This is not a winner-take-all game type.
14 Mar 12 UTC Spring, 1907: oh. I still think winning should be priority.
14 Mar 12 UTC Autumn, 1907: I was going to lose no matter what. But if I resisted longer, then England might get enough land to ask Turkey for a tie. This way I still lose but so do they.
