23 Aug 14 UTC Autumn, 1901: No France and no Italy....this is fun. :(
23 Aug 14 UTC Autumn, 1901: I know, It gives the West a big advantage.
24 Aug 14 UTC Autumn, 1901: Lol, NOW Italy decides to show back up. :)
24 Aug 14 UTC Autumn, 1901: Unlucky, but still no France.
28 Aug 14 UTC Autumn, 1902: Sorry, but I just had to share this gem that I just got in a PM from Russia: "Germany is being very aggresive towards me...."
Every single one of Germany's armies and fleets are on the other front, nowhere near Russia. Guess that's considered "aggressive".....lol.
28 Aug 14 UTC Autumn, 1902: lolol
28 Aug 14 UTC Autumn, 1902: Haha. No German troops in the German homeland? Must be a pretense for an invasion of Russia.
28 Aug 14 UTC Autumn, 1902: I would like to clarify. I meant in the chat Germany suggested abandonning the attack on England, just to attack me.
28 Aug 14 UTC Autumn, 1902: Well, I have told both Russia that I shall spend all my forces on fighting Russia (even at the expense of losing to England) because Russia broke an explicit agreement about a 4-year DMZ in Sil and Pru. So, brothers and sisters all, don't trust anything that Russia promises you.
His excuse is that Turkey instructed him to do it. So watch out, everyone, the R/T juggernaut is on its way to a convenient supply centre near your home.
29 Aug 14 UTC Spring, 1903: I don't know why people are getting mad or posting any of this on global- deceit is part of the game verbal DMZ's dont mean anything just gentleman's agreements- you should still put up barries from allowing 4 troops coming in your backside
29 Aug 14 UTC Spring, 1903: Yes deceit is part of the game....as is intimidation, bluffing, and publicly condemning people to try to sway others' opinions, hence the posting to global.
29 Aug 14 UTC Spring, 1903: nothing inaccurate, though.
29 Aug 14 UTC Spring, 1903: NMR? Must be the time-zone difference between Moscow Time and Central European Time!
04 Sep 14 UTC Autumn, 1904: Why are you all picking on me? What have I done to you?
04 Sep 14 UTC Autumn, 1904: The curse of NoMovRec be upon you. (It worked with my previous assailants.)
04 Sep 14 UTC Autumn, 1904: I'm only attacking you because Turkey told me to. And I do everything Turkey says.
04 Sep 14 UTC Autumn, 1904: (That's a joke)
09 Sep 14 UTC Spring, 1906: Well I'm done for. Clearance sale for my remaining SC's. Who wants 'em? lol
09 Sep 14 UTC Spring, 1906: Turkey's having you for Christmas?
11 Sep 14 UTC Autumn, 1906: Germany: Think. Why did the Russians attempt to invade you? Because Turkey demanded it. Why did the Austrians sack Berlin? Because they were displaced refugees, running from the death and destruction caused by Turkey. Why did England stab you? Because the only way to contain Turkey is with a strong navy, which can only be built with the sturdy trees of France. And why have I invaded you? Because the only way to destroy the Turks is with a strong army, which can only be built with reliable German iron.
Now, as you struggle to muster some sort of final defense, I beg that you instead step aside with dignity and acknowledge that your role has come to an untimely end.
You may find reason to accuse every one of your neighbors of betraying you this game, but truly there was only one traitor: Turkey. Every action against you was caused by this beast. Turkey has forced us all to sacrifice our integrity on his terrible alter, but you will be the first true mortality. Rest well, my weary friend, as in your unspeakable death the seeds of a new righteousness will be planted.

To the rest of my Christian countrymen: The time has come to renew our holy Crusade and unite! The Turk knocks his dirty hand on the doors of Vienna, just as he did centuries ago! Just as our forefathers did, we must cast aside our quibbles and rush to the aid of Austria! Yes, even you, England, with your heretical Anglicans. All are needed in such a dire hour as this! I, leader of the great and sovereign Italy and Pope of the One True Church, declare: We shall FIGHT. And WE... SHALL… PREVAIL!!!
11 Sep 14 UTC Autumn, 1906: Quite a speech to justify your perfidy!
The oddity of your position is that, despite your calls to head south-east to see off the Turkish threat, you continue to head north-west. This is, however, a strategy well known to Italian commanders: retreat your way to victory. You will receive what you deserve, an ottoman knife where the leg of Italy joins the body of Europe.
12 Sep 14 UTC Spring, 1907: Lol Italy
12 Sep 14 UTC Spring, 1907: wtf is hapenning
13 Sep 14 UTC Autumn, 1907: Possible NMR for Turkey? Since he knows we've ganged up against him?
13 Sep 14 UTC Autumn, 1907: If you give no orders for retreats, the units are just disbanded, right? Although Vienna would've been disbanded anyway
13 Sep 14 UTC Autumn, 1907: Wow. I might win this yet.
13 Sep 14 UTC Autumn, 1907: Lol
14 Sep 14 UTC Spring, 1908: Thanks for the game everyone. It seems I am riding off into glory.
14 Sep 14 UTC Autumn, 1908: Bah, I screwed the pooch with Warsaw. Sorry
16 Sep 14 UTC Spring, 1909: Victory at the Battle of Vienna--The Battle for the SOUL of Europe--is within reach, my compatriots!
19 Sep 14 UTC Spring, 1910: thats an intense convoy
22 Sep 14 UTC Spring, 1911: ....and Turkey abandoned the game. Man, I must be the only one who ever sticks around in games even when I'm being killed.
23 Sep 14 UTC Spring, 1911: I have the sneaking feeling that this is where you guys turn on me, since you've readied moves without talking to me for the first time in many many turns. Oh well, I suppose a three-way draw was always too much to hope for since I've barely been clinging to life the whole game. My only wish would be to survive longer than Turkey.
23 Sep 14 UTC Autumn, 1911: Guess not :( Best of luck to you both. It'll be interesting to see who turns on the other first to get to 18. I can't believe I lived as long as I did
23 Sep 14 UTC Autumn, 1911: But true to my word there will be no NMR's from me! I shall submit orders to the end!!!
23 Sep 14 UTC Autumn, 1911: Darn it.
And I would have gotten away with it too, if it wasn't for your meddling Eastern Med fleet!
24 Sep 14 UTC Autumn, 1911: Well perhaps England has gone awol and you'll end up winning anyway, lol.
24 Sep 14 UTC Spring, 1912: Dammit England! You missed our chance for a draw! Where were you?!?!

:P
26 Sep 14 UTC Good game. Since Turkey and England both took off and didn't even bother to finish the game, I am hereby declaring that I finished in 2nd place :).
26 Sep 14 UTC I think that is fair :-)
27 Sep 14 UTC Does that mean I can be third? :-)
27 Sep 14 UTC Thanks for the game.
27 Sep 14 UTC Sorry. France already called dibs on being third.
27 Sep 14 UTC Congratulations, cbuback (sounds of weeping from the German bunkers).
