Game drawn
19 Dec 14 UTC Autumn, 1998: Sorry..
24 Dec 14 UTC Spring, 1999: Damn sorry sorry sorry..
24 Dec 14 UTC Autumn, 1999: Not to worry - at least it proved that Ukraine and his best buddy Egypt are noting but duplicitous and not to be trusted.
24 Dec 14 UTC Autumn, 1999: Merry Christmas all! May my allies and enemies all have a delicious feast and lots of cool STUFF!
25 Dec 14 UTC Autumn, 1999: I hope everyone has a Merry Christmas, and make certain to enjoy yourselves.
07 Jan 15 UTC Autumn, 2001: Bye Italy - Well played, I hope sacrificing your ambitions for the sake of Egypt was worth it.
07 Jan 15 UTC Autumn, 2001: LONG LIVE THE GREEN!!!
08 Jan 15 UTC Autumn, 2001: Well damn me again, so busy..
13 Jan 15 UTC Autumn, 2002: I missed the deadline by minutes..
Sorry again guys! Loads of tests, loads of catching up..
14 Jan 15 UTC Autumn, 2002: The good news is noone gives enough of a shit about this game to take advantage of it.
14 Jan 15 UTC Autumn, 2002: At least you do Russia!
14 Jan 15 UTC Autumn, 2002: Well, he's got a point. I for one wouldn't mind drawing after Italy, Germany and Britain have been eliminated.
15 Jan 15 UTC Spring, 2003: I can't really disagree, though I'm thankful of Italy's support and would like them survive, I can't really bank on that happening if no one else does.
15 Jan 15 UTC Spring, 2003: I'll be down for that if its the consensus
15 Jan 15 UTC Spring, 2003: I guess France can make the call then.
15 Jan 15 UTC Spring, 2003: Oh and Ukraine, sorry Ukraine :-)
15 Jan 15 UTC Spring, 2003: ?
15 Jan 15 UTC Spring, 2003: What are you apologizing for now?
15 Jan 15 UTC Spring, 2003: Well I forgot you hadn't agreed to the plan yet either, so it's up to you and France rather than just France.
15 Jan 15 UTC Spring, 2003: I'm fine with wiping out Germany and Britain before moving on. Italy, while an under represented nation, has been rather helpful in the Mediterranean, so I'd be fine with seeing them survive.
19 Jan 15 UTC Autumn, 2003: Are people happy with a draw at this point? Since most of the board is fairly stalemated, I'd prefer to wind this game uuuup.
19 Jan 15 UTC Autumn, 2003: After Italy is dead we can end
19 Jan 15 UTC Autumn, 2003: no worries, I'm content to draw. I won't try to hold you all up :)
21 Jan 15 UTC Spring, 2004: So, are we drawing now?
21 Jan 15 UTC Spring, 2004: France is presumably waiting for Italy to be defeated, which I guess I would prefer too.
21 Jan 15 UTC Spring, 2004: Well, that's unfortunate.
21 Jan 15 UTC Spring, 2004: I'd rather we finish off Italy. No such thing as a free lunch.
21 Jan 15 UTC Spring, 2004: Fair enough. I understand your thought process. No hard feelings Italy, but I think I'm going to have to side with the other powers that be.
21 Jan 15 UTC Spring, 2004: But I didn't get a "free lunch" I worked to keep my survival. Pledging assistance to the sole country who cared to help me.
21 Jan 15 UTC Spring, 2004: And if it wasn't for some misplaced orders by Egypt, we would still have a stronger held position. Even now, if Egypt chooses, he can keep me alive.
21 Jan 15 UTC Spring, 2004: needing him to keep you alive is Frances point. I will simply go with the flow though
22 Jan 15 UTC Spring, 2004: Saying 'oh well, you should be defeated but you tried hard so we'll keep you in the draw' is rather against the spirit of the game.
22 Jan 15 UTC Spring, 2004: Should be over in a tick or two once he's dead.
22 Jan 15 UTC Spring, 2004: This game could be over now. France is the only one who wants to drag this out, and for minimal gains. Seems a little suspicious.
22 Jan 15 UTC Spring, 2004: I'm happy to draw now, if France really wants to keep pressing the issue, I guess we can drag it out...
22 Jan 15 UTC Spring, 2004: It's not dragging it out. I don't feel a 1 SC power should get the draw, and Poland seems to agree.
22 Jan 15 UTC Spring, 2004: If we hit ready we can have this drawn soon.
22 Jan 15 UTC Have to just get holds entered in for this phase, since Italy got taken out in Spring. (Sorry Italy, you did do a good job fighting, but in the end I had to agree with France).
22 Jan 15 UTC France and Spain did a good job holding the line with the added good fortune of a couple Polish NMRs, whether Italy survives or not is pretty moot, they helped me, but could not cement themselves. Well played everyone.
22 Jan 15 UTC Truth be told I was about ready to stab Poland several times when he NMR'd. It got a bit ridiculous there...

Wish Britain had stuck around, but he was a bit useless.
22 Jan 15 UTC If all remaining world powers would hurry up with this phase, we can skip straight ahead to the next Spring, and have the draw process.
22 Jan 15 UTC ^ Same here on the Poland issue, he got lucky that Egypt did a solid job reigning me in.
22 Jan 15 UTC Yeah well, depends on what you call luck since RL completely ruined my solo chances :)
22 Jan 15 UTC Well, hopefully we can just get everyone to ready up a hold bunch of holds/support holds and get through these next two phases before too long?
22 Jan 15 UTC Also: Thanks for cleaning up Iceland there France, that discolored spot was beginning to bug me.
22 Jan 15 UTC Yeah that's why I did it.
24 Jan 15 UTC Good game guys - thank you.
25 Jan 15 UTC GG
27 Jan 15 UTC Yup, GG.
28 Jan 15 UTC Good game indeed, defensive and long, but good :)
