Game drawn
03 Oct 14 UTC Autumn, 2002: Or more.
03 Oct 14 UTC Autumn, 2002: But then, I don't know what strategy they are pursuing now. I'm offering to help achieve those goals, but Britain needs to articulate them.
03 Oct 14 UTC Autumn, 2002: What is my goal? To survive, but I'm not going to betray my friend, Germany.
03 Oct 14 UTC Autumn, 2002: Your friend just took your SC.
03 Oct 14 UTC Autumn, 2002: I guess they put an infant in the throne of Turkey.
03 Oct 14 UTC Autumn, 2002: Britain: Germany, the friend who kicked out out of Scandinavia? The friend who promised you StP but took it away without warning, without offering recompense? With friends like those, who needs enemies. What are you getting out of your relationship with Germany? Honest question.
03 Oct 14 UTC Autumn, 2002: Right now, I am in a peaceful relationship with all of the powers. If keeping that peace means that I have to give up St. Petersburg, I'm fine with that
03 Oct 14 UTC Autumn, 2002: He's getting to survive, and more than that. I very much appreciate your calm and mature attitude GB (much more than can be said for the Yellow Sultan). I obviously needed to get an army in there.
I will happily give you the build back next year GB - feel free to take Holland or Denmark (and destroy the unit in Estonia after moving to Latvia this turn).
Poland- tap Moscow again.
03 Oct 14 UTC Autumn, 2002: Britain: You do realize that Germany is playing you for a patsy, right? By "calm and mature" he means "passive and willing to do whatever I command."
03 Oct 14 UTC Autumn, 2002: I am trying to appeal to your self-interest. You can grow strong. It is there. TAKE IT.
03 Oct 14 UTC Autumn, 2002: Poland, what do you want out of this game? Are you trying to win, or play kingmaker?
03 Oct 14 UTC Autumn, 2002: I am Just jerking around.
Secretly wishing that you win as you inherited my empire.
But what i want out of this game now is for an Italian-egypcian Victory!
03 Oct 14 UTC Autumn, 2002: Actually.
My goal is to fuck you off.
Because even if i fuck you off and you win, means you inherited the best fucking empire ever.
Don't forget we missed 2 turns Turkey.
03 Oct 14 UTC Autumn, 2002: It is a pretty sweet empire, I must say.
04 Oct 14 UTC Spring, 2003: Go Germany go!
04 Oct 14 UTC Spring, 2003: Germany, if you want you can have lituania.
Just let me have Gdansk and i will help you with my unit on the front.
04 Oct 14 UTC Spring, 2003: That way you can put an army instead of a fleet in Lituania.
05 Oct 14 UTC Spring, 2003: That might be a good idea to try in the fall, but let's experiment this turn... leave Lithuania where it is, but move Latvia to St. Pete. I want to see how Turkey reacts. We're making progress.

And Italy/Egypt, if you coordinate together, you can and should take the Ionian Sea.
05 Oct 14 UTC Spring, 2003: And GB, as promised, feel free to take Norway if you like.
05 Oct 14 UTC Spring, 2003: I think we might have a stalemate around the Ionian, but if there's a way to break it I will of course lend my support.
05 Oct 14 UTC Spring, 2003: There is no way to break the stalemate around the Ionian unless someone makes a mistake. As I have said repeatedly, Germany is counting on this stalemate in the south--he is actively encouraging it--so he can try to make very small inroads in the north. He is the only one who benefits.
07 Oct 14 UTC Autumn, 2003: This game will not end in a draw as long as I am still playing. If you want to end it, ally with me.
07 Oct 14 UTC Autumn, 2003: My terms have not changed.
08 Oct 14 UTC Spring, 2004: Poland - move to St. Pete.
08 Oct 14 UTC Spring, 2004: done
09 Oct 14 UTC Autumn, 2004: Poland - same move if you please.
GB - move norway to norwegian sea, liverpool to clyde, and yorkshire to edinburgh. We're mobilizing against the enemy.
Both of you please confirm that you received this message.
10 Oct 14 UTC Autumn, 2004: Britain: Norway to Sweden, Yorkshire to North Sea, and Liverpool to Yorkshire would benefit you much more.
10 Oct 14 UTC Autumn, 2004: As the only one holding up the draw, is it a surprise we're all going to work together to attack you?
10 Oct 14 UTC Autumn, 2004: Germany, if you're going to move out of Slovakia, I'm going to move in. Just FYI...
10 Oct 14 UTC Autumn, 2004: If any single nation wants to ally with me, we can take this board without drawing. This game shouldn't end in a stalemate.

Britain, Egypt? POLAND? How about it?
10 Oct 14 UTC Autumn, 2004: This isn't WTA. PPSC means take all the SCs you can get.
10 Oct 14 UTC Autumn, 2004: I'm all good with a draw
10 Oct 14 UTC Autumn, 2004: If you play for a draw, you shouldn't be playing.
10 Oct 14 UTC Autumn, 2004: Italy, I *still* haven't attacked your SCs. Even though you have Ionian for the time being, all that did was move the stalemate line one sea space.

All the action is going to be happening up north. You won't benefit at all from Germany's gains there. Ain't gonna happen.

Germany just set up Britain for a stab. London is utterly unprotected. Get ready for it Britain. F North Sea C A Hol -> London. The only way for Germany to break through me is to get more SCs. AND THOSE ARE YOURS.
10 Oct 14 UTC Autumn, 2004: To be more clear, Germany needs to take Britain's supply centers in order to try and break me.

Anyone want a guaranteed top 2 finish with me? Or are you trusting Germany to let you share in his solo?
10 Oct 14 UTC Autumn, 2004: Because once he gets a few more SCs, that Draw button is going off.
10 Oct 14 UTC Autumn, 2004: Britain, the ring is yours, if you only reach out to grab it.
10 Oct 14 UTC Autumn, 2004: Great job taking Ionian Italy! Now we've got him running scared, look at him begging. As a matter of fact Turkey - maybe you're right about the draw... I'll give you a year or two to be fair to everyone else, but if you don't agree by then, maybe I will take away my draw vote so that you can be taken apart, piece by piece, until you have nothing left. Then imagine how you'll feel, having wasted such a golden opportunity :)
10 Oct 14 UTC Spring, 2005: Right now, you can sit like a Cheshire cat and grin all you want Germany. I don't know why the others are supporting you because you are the only one who benefits.

I know Italy sees what is going on. But his long-term plan is no longer viable. If Germany defeats me in the north, he and Egypt will not be strong enough to beat you. And heck, Germany just admitted he'll go for the solo once the tides have turned.

Play for the win people. The easiest way to expand for *everyone* is at Germany's expense.
10 Oct 14 UTC Spring, 2005: Alright guys, he's sweating bullets now. Let's crush this buffoon.

GB - I'm moving to White Sea, come in behind me (Nor Sea to Barents and Edin. to Nor Sea).

Italy - I like your idea. Take Slovakia.

Poland - Hit either Moscow or Bielorussia this turn, either one. We'll keep it a surprise for Turkey so he has to defend both eaqually :)
11 Oct 14 UTC Spring, 2005: Hey, I got into the Ionian! Yay! :D
11 Oct 14 UTC Spring, 2005: Egypt, please have at least one unit support holding the Ionian :).
11 Oct 14 UTC Spring, 2005: Germany, do you mind if I support my move to Slovakia next turn?
11 Oct 14 UTC Spring, 2005: Please do, even if it squishes me out, no problem.
11 Oct 14 UTC Spring, 2005: You have the support, Italy!
12 Oct 14 UTC Spring, 2005: Didn't quite trust me there, eh Britain? Haha, no worries. You and I and everyone else only has one common enemy now, but no harm done with those moves. I do want to convoy your army up to help us in the north next year, so move it to Edinburgh now, and I'll move to the Nor Sea.

This upcoming turn - support me to Urals from Murmansk.
12 Oct 14 UTC Germany, is there any way you can hit Podolia for me?
12 Oct 14 UTC Another victory for the forces of mediocrity.
12 Oct 14 UTC good
21 Oct 14 UTC Yes turkey!
You where Mediocre
