01 Nov 09 UTC Autumn, 1901: Well this is turning out to be a rather dissapointing game if I do say so myself...
01 Nov 09 UTC Autumn, 1901: no kidding
01 Nov 09 UTC Autumn, 1901: Yeah this is interesting, don't think I've ever seen anything like this before. What are England and Austria doing?
01 Nov 09 UTC Autumn, 1901: they left
04 Nov 09 UTC Spring, 1903: My apologies all, I have not been able to get an internet connection but I am back now. I fear it may be too late though!
05 Nov 09 UTC Autumn, 1903: thanks for coming back just before i killed you, england
05 Nov 09 UTC Autumn, 1903: Welcome back! Yes, it is certainly an uphill struggle for you from here --
13 Nov 09 UTC Autumn, 1905: well now im dead
16 Nov 09 UTC Autumn, 1906: HAHA I forgot to play this game
16 Nov 09 UTC Autumn, 1906: Haha and Austria appears.
09 Dec 09 UTC Autumn, 1913: Alright, since this is clearly headed towards a French victory, let me make this attempt to force a draw.

France, if you continue to attack Germany or myself I will turn all my energies on you and allow Turkey to consume me, turning him into a foe that you cannot beat and making him the victor.
Turkey, if you continue to attack me, I will throw all of my energies against you, allowing France to easily take the win.
In short, if either of you does something that will aid you in winning, I will make it my goal to aid someone else in winning.
With this new doctrine, perhaps we can all come together and declare a hard fought draw before the dawn of 1914. The game is still very much in the air and any slight changes in the status quo such as this will completely disrupt any semblence of balance and destroy any assuredness of victory.
09 Dec 09 UTC Autumn, 1913: well so what if turkey and i both attack you at the same time? who will you try to fend off then?
09 Dec 09 UTC Autumn, 1913: Do you really want to put the difference between victory or defeat on who can take more of Russia faster, subject to my whim? I am not arguing that one of you could win, I am merely appealing to the fact that it is largely up to me as to who that is and that it is much better for the all of us to simply draw.
09 Dec 09 UTC Autumn, 1913: first of all you are making too many assumptions. first off i dont know why you think you have all the power to decide who will win. next you are assuming that turkey and i are fighting, which we clearly aren't and third you are assuming that because you are close to losing that the other people in the game who have a chance of winning just want to quit. youre right that i might not win but i want to play it out. i already have a lot of time vested in this game and i want to at least try to win. this isnt really the typical draw scenario that you are describing...
09 Dec 09 UTC Autumn, 1913: With the center numbers at 13-11-7-3 I see very little possibility for an upset. Perhaps I'm wrong, perhaps I have absolutely no power and France and Turkey will carve me up before going at each other (which, you must admit, is an inevitability). But this is my only real chance at coming out with anything other than a survive. Ignore me if you believe that I am wrong, that does not change the fact that my threat and offer are still there.
09 Dec 09 UTC Autumn, 1913: we're not ignoring you, we are just praying for your mercy
09 Dec 09 UTC Autumn, 1913: Praying? Mercy? Please France, let's keep this game serious.
09 Dec 09 UTC Autumn, 1913: tell that to russia he's the one threatening us to make us quit. tell him to get serious
15 Dec 09 UTC Autumn, 1914: May be what some would call prudent or wise, but it is certainly a cowardly finish for the Turk...
15 Dec 09 UTC Autumn, 1914: I love you too.
15 Dec 09 UTC Autumn, 1914: tis cowardly for you germany
16 Dec 09 UTC Autumn, 1914: touche France
16 Dec 09 UTC Autumn, 1914: but honestly, good game to all -- I'm pleased we could make this fun despite the early drop outs. Hope to play with you all again!
16 Dec 09 UTC Autumn, 1914: Aye, same to you. Made the best with what we had and it was quite a bit better than some other game's I've played.
16 Dec 09 UTC Autumn, 1914: I have to admit, I had no idea what to do when Austria just up and left. Kinda added a nice element to the game, even though it was highly inconvenient at first. Same with England, I'm sure, for you up north. Good game to all.
16 Dec 09 UTC Autumn, 1914: good game everyone. it was well played from all parties
16 Dec 09 UTC Spring, 1915: or at least the remaining 4
