26 Jan 15 UTC Autumn, 1906: Haha well indeed Germany. Maybe a bluff :). Seriously though, Ger/Fra you need to stop fighting now, we need to respond.
26 Jan 15 UTC Autumn, 1906: Turkey - do you really believe that you will survive by trying to drum everyone against me?? No one is buying into this relax :)
Just die peacefully :) I'll try and make it quick and painless :P
27 Jan 15 UTC Autumn, 1906: Thank you Austria, finally you have said something I can trust. Would be a good achievement to get a Win in a WTA starting as Austria. I don't think I have ever done that before.
27 Jan 15 UTC Autumn, 1906: For the record Turkey, I've never lied to you in this entire game. That is an objective fact. I told you that Aegean was non negotiable and that if you moved there, it would have consequences.
And secondly, this talk of me winning is ridiculous. I understand that you have to try and drum it up to find a way to survive somehow but I don't think anyone is buying into it.
One turn ago, you were talking of 3-way drawing with me - now all of a sudden, Austria is soloing everyone - Europe unite!
As I said, no one is buying it :)
27 Jan 15 UTC Spring, 1907: It's ok, Austria. I was soloing a turn ago and now look at me...
27 Jan 15 UTC Spring, 1907: Austria is beginning to sound like a politician :)
27 Jan 15 UTC Spring, 1907: p.s. 4 years, game over, Austria win. I doubt I will see it though, be lucky to last 1 year :)
27 Jan 15 UTC Spring, 1907: He is effectively on 15, if you count Ank, Smy, Rome, Nap and Tunis; which are fairly easy targets. Just needs War, Mun and maybe Mars...
28 Jan 15 UTC Spring, 1907: I think Turkey has a crush on MM. MM is not in this game as far as I know, but Turkey's press to me in the last 3 days has been exclusively about MM :)
28 Jan 15 UTC Spring, 1907: Its quite adorable. Haha
28 Jan 15 UTC Spring, 1907: Yes we are very close.
29 Jan 15 UTC Spring, 1907: Stab me once, shame on you.
Stab me twice, shame on me.
Stab me thrice, Sh@dow is a bloody fool.
29 Jan 15 UTC Spring, 1907: Aw, jeez buddy. I just want to be your friend.
And I think it was only twice.
01 Feb 15 UTC Autumn, 1907: Call it a draw, my Silver Tongued friend Austria?
01 Feb 15 UTC Autumn, 1907: That has got to be the worst set of moves I have ever made in my entire life.
I'm wondering whether there is anything that I could have done that was worse than what I did
01 Feb 15 UTC Autumn, 1907: well, you are not having to destroy anything, so yeah. It could had been worse
02 Feb 15 UTC Autumn, 1907: It is a sign. The Gods are telling you to DRAW.
06 Feb 15 UTC Spring, 1908: I will be out of town this weekend so my press will drop and I could need more time to answer to you guys.
07 Feb 15 UTC Spring, 1908: Don't know which nation here is Sh@dow but kudos for your latest post in the Chris Kelly thread.
07 Feb 15 UTC Spring, 1908: Haha. Well done Germany.
Nice way to simultaenously praise yourself while trying and convincing me that you aren't Sh@dow :P
07 Feb 15 UTC Spring, 1908: Since when did this Shadow's (pardon me for not stretching my hand for that absurd character in the name) name start to carry so much water. Aren't we supposed to be witch hunting for MM or did that lose cache when he dropped from first place?
07 Feb 15 UTC Spring, 1908: Is MM in this game? Turkey was convinced he is and I would love to witchhunt MM.
07 Feb 15 UTC Spring, 1908: I honestly can't remember. I think this was organized through private messages and it doesn't let you scroll back that far.
07 Feb 15 UTC Spring, 1908: I suppose that's what the 'notes' section is for.
07 Feb 15 UTC Spring, 1908: As far as I can remember, we had yonni, guak, rdrivera, ckroberts, shadow, KingJohn and someone else. I dunno who the 7th person is. Pretty good bunch though.
07 Feb 15 UTC Autumn, 1908: Would you guys grant me a pause until Monday? My internet access here it's even worst then I thought and I am not able to enter orders (I am using an anonymous browser where JavaScript does not work).
07 Feb 15 UTC Autumn, 1908: If someone is genuinely unable to negotiate properly or enter orders, the pause is the only fair measure. My vote is in.
France, if all the pauses do not flow in before the deadline, try emailing the mods.
07 Feb 15 UTC Autumn, 1908: I just pressed draw instead of pause by mistake. Thank god for the confirmation message which pops up!! haha.
07 Feb 15 UTC Autumn, 1908: You should draw while you still have the chance. Soon we will remove this option for you, and you will not be part of our draw. Stranger things have happened.
07 Feb 15 UTC Autumn, 1908: Well, I finally discovered a way to enter some provisory orders, so maybe the pause it's not needed.
08 Feb 15 UTC Autumn, 1908: Should we ask the mods to force pause for italy?
08 Feb 15 UTC Autumn, 1908: sorry about that. was away,
08 Feb 15 UTC Autumn, 1908: Good bye all.
08 Feb 15 UTC Autumn, 1908: i finally go out to an NMR, says it all really :). It is quite finely balanced, but I predict Ger, Fra, Eng will force a stalemate with Austria. Will be interesting to watch.
10 Feb 15 UTC Autumn, 1908: I am back home and don't need a pause. Does anyone else asked for a pause?
10 Feb 15 UTC Autumn, 1908: Yes could I pause forever please?
11 Feb 15 UTC Spring, 1909: Hey guys,
I've got people staying with me for the next few weeks so I'm going to be playing almost completely from my phone. Sorry for the short messages.
17 Feb 15 UTC Autumn, 1910: So, I think we're at a draw here.

Whether Italy does or doesn't make it to the draw is pretty much Austria's decision but I don't think we're getting less than a 4WD.
17 Feb 15 UTC Autumn, 1910: Agree with Germany. This game has ended, we just need to decide if it's a 4-way or a 5-way.
18 Feb 15 UTC Autumn, 1910: I also agree that a four-way is fine.
18 Feb 15 UTC Autumn, 1910: I am not 4WDing. I find it quite a sad state of affairs and a complete waste of time to invest this much energy and time into a game to come out of it with just a 4 way.
Go ahead and eliminate me and 3-way draw if you'll want.
18 Feb 15 UTC Autumn, 1910: If a 4-way is an unacceptable result what you will accept? Everybody agree to let you solo?
18 Feb 15 UTC Autumn, 1910: Have already outline what I will accept
18 Feb 15 UTC Autumn, 1910: Austria, I don´t know what do you really expect from us. It´s clear that neither me, England or Germany will stab the others. We have a solid stalemate line and you can´t break it. We can try to eliminate you, sure, but what´s the point? You have a solid stalemate line in the Med and also on the middle europe, so what´s the point? You tried a lot to convince someone to get greedy and make a move, but it didn´t work. Accept this and let´s finish this game.
18 Feb 15 UTC Autumn, 1910: If you're terribly excited to be eliminated, Austria, I suggest pulling back and gifting a few centres to us.
18 Feb 15 UTC Autumn, 1910: Good bye cruel world
19 Feb 15 UTC Bloody pissed to not be soloing in this game. Should have taken War, Mos earlier when I had the chance and then made a go for Mun, Berlin. At one point - Marseilles was horribly exposed too and a sure shot kill but I didn't pull the trigger. I did this mostly thinking that it would be better to hang back and take it slow. But if I had gone for Moscow and Marseilles and blitzed, I stood a somewhat chance at that time.
Everyone should really thank Italy though because his antics slowed me down an unimaginable extent and prevented me from making a go at crossing stalemate lines.

I'm also quite shocked that none of you would want to reduce a draw - I expected more people to see great value in reducing the draw. There really was no risk if you'll managed it well and a 4WD just is not a satisfactory result to me.

Anyway - thanks for taking my invites everyone. My first time with each of you - Been a pleasure playing you'll.
19 Feb 15 UTC I'll put up an EOG thread if you'll want to talk about it.
19 Feb 15 UTC Fun game guys. I can try make some time for an EOG but it may have to wait a couple of weeks.

The only 3WD I would have liked at this point would have been EFG ; ). A shame that England ruined my plans in 1905, I get pretty excited at how that might have played out by well done by Roberts.
19 Feb 15 UTC Good game guys. After that 3 x1 at start any draw is a great result. And Austria, I don't really think you had a solo chance. You was never close enough to Mars and Germany have the Mun/Ber line pretty closed.
