13 Oct 09 UTC Spring, 1901: Hi all :)
I hope you enjoy this game!
13 Oct 09 UTC Spring, 1901: Congratulations on your 5000 points!
13 Oct 09 UTC Spring, 1901: Sooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo

Who listens to Radiohead?
13 Oct 09 UTC Spring, 1901: They're from England. (I'm looking at your the_archduke)
13 Oct 09 UTC Spring, 1901: uh, well, who doesn't listen to radiohead?
13 Oct 09 UTC Spring, 1901: There are people who don't.
13 Oct 09 UTC Spring, 1901: i don't believe you.
13 Oct 09 UTC Spring, 1901: Strange but true.
15 Oct 09 UTC Spring, 1902: Wow, I just saw a typo.

(I'm looking at YOU the_archduke)**
19 Oct 09 UTC Spring, 1904: Can you retreat France? To speed the game a little?
21 Oct 09 UTC Autumn, 1905: And Austria lives!
21 Oct 09 UTC Autumn, 1905: HOO-RAH
21 Oct 09 UTC Autumn, 1905: Come on France.
22 Oct 09 UTC Autumn, 1905: And that English stab should be coming in sometime soon...
22 Oct 09 UTC Autumn, 1905: I think russia will die first ;)
22 Oct 09 UTC Spring, 1906: ta-da! what now?
22 Oct 09 UTC Spring, 1906: Now we dance.
23 Oct 09 UTC Spring, 1906: Sooo......

Why don't we just draw?

I mean...come on...
25 Oct 09 UTC Spring, 1907: There's the stab!

I think...
25 Oct 09 UTC Spring, 1907: Fleet Kiel! OH SNAAAAAAAAP!
29 Oct 09 UTC Autumn, 1909: Why is Turkey finalizing orders where he doesn't move?
29 Oct 09 UTC Autumn, 1909: I'm going to lose, I figured that out pretty quickly. However, I dislike whenever people just update orders without finalizing, and force everyone else to, by extension wait out the entire time because they want to drag out their inevitable loss. So, if I've accepted my defeat, I move to a situation that allows easy access to my SCs, and I simply hold my units and finalize it. This moves it just a little quicker than it would otherwise.
29 Oct 09 UTC Autumn, 1909: Wow that sucks for me...
29 Oct 09 UTC Autumn, 1909: My stab of Germany was predicated on there actually being conflict in the south...
29 Oct 09 UTC Autumn, 1909: There is some conflict in the south. Check Spain ;)
29 Oct 09 UTC Autumn, 1909: Southeast...
30 Oct 09 UTC Autumn, 1910: Turkey, you are a coward
30 Oct 09 UTC Autumn, 1910: and your cowardice directly benefits those who defeated you
30 Oct 09 UTC Autumn, 1910: You could have fought, and maybe survived... but even if you had lost you could have felt good about the attempt
30 Oct 09 UTC Autumn, 1910: rolling over and letting someone completely take you over with no effort but moving into empty supply centers is the worst thing that I have ever seen in this game
30 Oct 09 UTC Autumn, 1910: The worst I have seen was a guy that made a stab thinking his former ally was an idiot...
30 Oct 09 UTC Autumn, 1910: Haha
30 Oct 09 UTC Autumn, 1910: But stabbing is part of the game, and I honestly thought that you were moving to stab me. Who knows, maybe if I had waited a turn or two, you would have stabbed me first. Abandoning your SCs so an invader can take them unopposed has no place in this game.
30 Oct 09 UTC Autumn, 1910: I was going to keep my word :)
And now, if all went well, you will get nothing.

A bad deal, don´t you think? ;)
30 Oct 09 UTC Autumn, 1910: i must agree about turkey even though i've benefited from it. i'd rather fight for those sc's left since i had the upper hand.
31 Oct 09 UTC Autumn, 1910: Oh well.
31 Oct 09 UTC Autumn, 1910: I saw no reason to kept playing. I could have taken Sevastopol, but I didn't want to betray the alliance I was attempting to form with Germany, especially given my rather precarious position against Italy. He probably would have, given the opportunity, taken back the land, but that's something I would have dealt with as the time came.

I certainly apologize for making the experience of the game less enjoyable, as that wasn't my intent by any means. I had gotten no more joy out of it, and instead of, as I said, allowing my country to fall into CD, I decided to just allow it to be added to whichever countries decided to take it. In all honesty, I would have preferred if Germany had taken it.

Again, apologies and so on.
31 Oct 09 UTC Autumn, 1910: Anyone for a draw?
31 Oct 09 UTC Autumn, 1910: After you are destroyed, yes I will be avaiable for a draw ;)
31 Oct 09 UTC Autumn, 1910: One of you will solo before that happens
31 Oct 09 UTC Autumn, 1910: That won't happen.
01 Nov 09 UTC thanks for the game both of you. it was a good one.
