10 Nov 13 UTC Autumn, 1901: Yes, unbalanced, less fun.

16 Nov 13 UTC Spring, 1903: England is called away from the game, returning Sunday evening, 11-17-2013
17 Nov 13 UTC Autumn, 1903: I hope we could all pause for 12 hours to accomodate England
17 Nov 13 UTC Autumn, 1903: OK, paused.
17 Nov 13 UTC Autumn, 1903: Thanks, Russia. England said he would be back late tonight but it is cutting it close.

17 Nov 13 UTC Autumn, 1903: England has returned. Thanks for patience

02 Dec 13 UTC Autumn, 1907: flash...
Trench warfare in Germany has hit all sides hard with a lack of rations and disease causing toll as great as the shelling.
"When the broken battered trenches,
Are like the bloody butchers' benches,
And the air is thick with stenches,
Carry on." -a cheery WWI poem
02 Dec 13 UTC Autumn, 1907: lol
02 Dec 13 UTC Autumn, 1907: Hi germany -

Nice of you to help the newbie. I don't like your fleet in NAO but I trust it is going to Russia.
I will continue to help you and keep the alliance.
I will hit teh Hel
02 Dec 13 UTC Autumn, 1907: Welcome aboard! My fleet is headed to Russia. The newbie leaving hurt. And he left you a unit down.
02 Dec 13 UTC Autumn, 1907: I'm having a tough time against the Russian and Austrian. Tough to fight them both.
03 Dec 13 UTC Autumn, 1907: Convoy your army to Nwy. I will support it. You will be able to take StP, and I will move into Nwy. I will move Nwy to Swe and you can have Nwy later.

17 Dec 13 UTC (2ndWhiteLine): Dear members,

This game has been paused for an ongoing metagaming investigation. It will be cancelled when the investigation is done. Please do not vote to unpause, cancel, or draw in the meantime. Thank you for your patience while this situation is resolved.

17 Dec 13 UTC (2ndWhiteLine): Correction - this game will likely not be cancelled. Apologizes for the confusion.
18 Dec 13 UTC it better not be cancelled lol
18 Dec 13 UTC Thanks for the correction. I didn't know if "It will be cancelled" meant the pause or the game.
18 Dec 13 UTC What's the problem? Has this ever happened to people before?
18 Dec 13 UTC I've been in several games where this has happened. Some people feel they have to cheat to get an advantage. It is against the rules to have multiple accounts, or to team up with another player outside the game, or make promises of support in future games. This cheating is worse than NMRs. You will often see people make seemingly illogical moves that really disrupt the game.
18 Dec 13 UTC so how long does it take to get going again?
18 Dec 13 UTC I've only been in five games, and two have had people removed for having two or more accounts. It's usually pretty quick and then someone gets banned for "multi".
18 Dec 13 UTC well its not quick this time lol
19 Dec 13 UTC Weird.
20 Dec 13 UTC Any update on this game?
20 Dec 13 UTC guess not :/
22 Dec 13 UTC cmon!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Q
23 Dec 13 UTC It does say it's a "an ongoing metagaming investigation". So, its either complicated, hard to decide, or close to Christmas.
Relax and eat some Christmas turkey. With gravy and stuffing.
24 Dec 13 UTC I think we've gotten Ho-Ho-Hosed!
24 Dec 13 UTC Heh.
27 Dec 13 UTC ...and Happy New Year, too.
27 Dec 13 UTC Happy New Year all!
28 Dec 13 UTC (2ndWhiteLine): Hello again, I apologize for the delay. Here's now this will proceed. I am going to cancel this game due to cheating, which I will do at some point over the next day or two. If anybody disagrees with my decision, please email me at Thanks for your patience and understanding.
28 Dec 13 UTC GameMaster: Starside was banned: multi.
28 Dec 13 UTC GameMaster: BLP1234 was banned: multi.
28 Dec 13 UTC we need to email him!!
28 Dec 13 UTC Just going to do that now.
28 Dec 13 UTC Just doing that now.
28 Dec 13 UTC if he does cancel this, I would like to say now that it was an honor working with u turkey and have never met a more loyal ally! u too Russia, once you finally betrayed Germany lol
28 Dec 13 UTC (2ndWhiteLine): I received Theodosius' email and he made a very good point regarding the inevitable elimination of England and Germany. I will draw this game.
28 Dec 13 UTC liquorcricket was extremely loyal and effective. If he hadn't doubled back and protected Austria, the game would have been vastly different. He forced me to change sides or be moved to the sidelines. That made the game a lot more interesting, too...
ERAUfan97, you also had plenty of opportunity to stab me while attacking Germany, but kept your eye on the ball. Thanks for that.
A good game, up to now.

Starside was an experienced player. He should have known better.
28 Dec 13 UTC Thanks, 2ndWhiteLine.
28 Dec 13 UTC yes, thanks 2ndWhiteLine. MAY U BOTH HAVE A HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!
28 Dec 13 UTC Just getting back to this. This is how I would have liked to end this anyway, so congrats to the three of us remaining! ERAUfan97 - from the outset you were a trusted ally, which is not easy to do with Austria and Turkey. Theodosius, we had a rough beginning - but I appreciate you giving me a second chance and wanted to make sure your trust in us was repaid.

Happy New Year!!
