Game drawn
12 Feb 14 UTC Autumn, 4: Maybe Egypt will change its mind on occupying Leptis when its no longer feeling blue. :)
15 Feb 14 UTC Autumn, 5: See, over thought that one. Thought Egypt might try and cut Leptis' support..
19 Feb 14 UTC Autumn, 6: Uhm... Persia?
19 Feb 14 UTC Spring, 7: Yea, that didn't go how I expected. I'll move back out. However, this has turned into one big mess, shall we call it a draw gents?
19 Feb 14 UTC Spring, 7: After Greece demise, why not?
19 Feb 14 UTC Spring, 7: Well the little factor of you guys trying to destroy us 3-2... and failing. :)
19 Feb 14 UTC Spring, 7: But if Persia agrees, I will.
19 Feb 14 UTC Spring, 7: I vote to keep the game going.
19 Feb 14 UTC Spring, 7: Well then, maybe you'll have a taste of a 3-1 against you Egypt :)
19 Feb 14 UTC Autumn, 7: lol well if everyone wants a draw then I can cast my vote.
20 Feb 14 UTC Spring, 8: Come on fellows are you sure?
20 Feb 14 UTC Spring, 8: Rome has no reason to draw.
20 Feb 14 UTC Spring, 8: My reason to draw is Persia wants to draw.. While we didn't set out to become allies, the 3-2 made it so.
20 Feb 14 UTC Spring, 8: The main problem is that due to the flow of the game, the only people we can all attack at this point are our original allies...
20 Feb 14 UTC Spring, 8: Cathage would you still be interested in a draw if I sent you as much support as I possably could?
20 Feb 14 UTC Spring, 8: The real question for you Egypt is - would you like your chances in a 3 on 1 situation?
20 Feb 14 UTC Spring, 8: Persia your reason for drawing is your losing. Rome is your ally and so he is being kind and drawing for you.
20 Feb 14 UTC Spring, 8: Give me 2 more years and you would be crushed.
20 Feb 14 UTC Spring, 8: I am indeed drawing b/c I have nowhere to go except at my ally, Rome. In 1 more year, his backup would arrive and along with carthage, the 3 of us would wipe you out for holding up the draw...
20 Feb 14 UTC Spring, 8: I'm still waiting word on Carthage before I vote. He and I can still take both of you if we work together. I've been letting them fight it out. With Rome barely ahead my help would push him back. Carthage what say you? Shall we rule the world together? O
21 Feb 14 UTC Spring, 8: I'm pretty sure that if Persia maintains pressure on you, you can't offer enough help to Carthage. What you forget, Egypt, is that while you have been beating Persia with only Cyrene sitting there on your other border, I have been beating off Carthage on one side, and Greece on the other (With Persia's help). With Greece now gone, you and Carthage are looking as 3-6 additional troops arrayed against you than you faced previously.
21 Feb 14 UTC Spring, 8: The only way I fall, is if Rome turns against me.
21 Feb 14 UTC Spring, 8: Er... Persia. Heh... Typed too fast there.
21 Feb 14 UTC Spring, 8: Or of course, I screw up badly. Heh. Always a possibility.
21 Feb 14 UTC Spring, 8: Well, Egypt, from my point of view, while you can win against Persia, I am hard-pressed against Rome here.
Until now, our alliance has 17 SC each and this could drag a long way battle with Persia and me losing ground.

We may win or we may not, but there is higher chance that we would Draw anyway.
If you want to continue this game until let's say 2 years, then I will supporting you, Egypt.
In 2 years, we could see whether we still could win this or not.
21 Feb 14 UTC Spring, 8: Persia has a very big problem though. They only have 3 ships to my 6. And at the begining of next year I'm pritty sure I could get a build from them. As for their armies they are pritty usless where they sit now. If I move to Aegaen sea it would tie down most if not all of his troops in that district. As for giving support to my ally I think I could spare him 2 ships up front and of course my land unit in Cyrine. I would then send whatever extra I could as times goes on.
21 Feb 14 UTC Spring, 8: I missed part of your message as I did not refresh. But I would like to continue for another 2 years anyway.
21 Feb 14 UTC Spring, 8: Ok, I will support you then.
21 Feb 14 UTC Spring, 8: You have my thanks :)
21 Feb 14 UTC Spring, 8: Persia has 3 fleets... but I have some extra. :)
21 Feb 14 UTC Autumn, 8: This is a fun guessing game, Carthage, no?
21 Feb 14 UTC Autumn, 8: Yes, indeed, Rome.
22 Feb 14 UTC Autumn, 8: Good guess
26 Feb 14 UTC Spring, 10: Oh well, internet goes down, I lose.
26 Feb 14 UTC Yep, your internet goes down, I lose as well :/
26 Feb 14 UTC Although Egypt has now already broken his word I believe. It has been 3 years now, and he agreed to draw after 2 lol. You should put him in his place Carthage ;)
26 Feb 14 UTC Sorry Persia :(
26 Feb 14 UTC I never broke my word. Cathage said he would support me for 2 years and since then I have heard nothing from him. So I assumed he is continuing to support me.
26 Feb 14 UTC What say you Carthage? Its been more than 2 years. Granted, the gods have seen fit to grant you the advantage... what will you do with your luck?
27 Feb 14 UTC First of all, I want to hear from you about End Game, Egypt.
Will we Draw? And with how many people?
Because I definitely don't want to see you or anyone Solo.
27 Feb 14 UTC Well if your up for a draw then I say draw now. What say you?
27 Feb 14 UTC We Draw then.
At least we have proven that we have good strategy.
If only Greece can keep up with us, our alliance has already won this game.
27 Feb 14 UTC Good game guys. :)
27 Feb 14 UTC Good Game all.
27 Feb 14 UTC Well played all!
28 Feb 14 UTC Good game all.
28 Feb 14 UTC Good game all.
28 Feb 14 UTC Huh... Xildur and Dagabs... seems we meet again!
07 Mar 14 UTC Hahaha. Yeah, Yakoska.
07 Mar 14 UTC No wonder Rome has good strategy.
