20 Feb 15 UTC Autumn, 1906: If you could help aegean sea going in bulgaria that would be great
20 Feb 15 UTC Autumn, 1906: Russia, I moved out of Rumania and you tried to move into Galicia. I am certain you wish to take me out. Do you really wish for war?
20 Feb 15 UTC Autumn, 1906: Russia, I moved out of Rumania and you tried to move into Galicia. I am certain you wish to take me out. Do you really wish for war?
20 Feb 15 UTC Autumn, 1906: Germany, any move I make against Russia is not against you.
22 Feb 15 UTC Autumn, 1906: Well, I'm fucked. GG
23 Feb 15 UTC Spring, 1907: Russia, I needed fleets in order to defend my newly-acquired territories in the West. Do not feel threatened by me.
23 Feb 15 UTC Spring, 1907: ok think you for information.
23 Feb 15 UTC Spring, 1907: defend from France and England (1 army each) ?
23 Feb 15 UTC Spring, 1907: Austria: everyone makes mistakes. i will offer you peace, agree?
23 Feb 15 UTC Spring, 1907: and also have some proposition
23 Feb 15 UTC Spring, 1907: Peace would be appreciated. What is your proposition?
23 Feb 15 UTC Spring, 1907: As I also think a war between us would be futile and punitive. We would always come to stalemate. I am eager to hear your proposition.
23 Feb 15 UTC Spring, 1907: As I also think a war between us would be futile and punitive. We would always come to stalemate. I am eager to hear your proposition.
24 Feb 15 UTC Spring, 1907: Interesting developments. Austria, I mean you no harm. I moved to Tyrolia to attack the French supply centre. Seeing that you have this covered, I will be moving back to Munich. You don't have to take my word for it now; I'll show you next phase when I move back.

Russia, I see you anticipated me. That's all well, I suppose.

Good move, France.
24 Feb 15 UTC Spring, 1907: Austria and Turkey: The three of us can easily clean up Russia. He can't fight a war on three fronts and expect to last long. I suggest a coordinated assault.
24 Feb 15 UTC Spring, 1907: @Austria:
as u see Germany is simply a traitor!!! so i will not attack you any more and offer deep alliance against Germany!
i will support your move from Albania to Greece, ok?

@Germany: last call... remove your army from BalticSea
24 Feb 15 UTC Autumn, 1907: Austria, I am not attacking you. I have had ample opportunity before now to attack you, and I have not done so. I am mobilising against the Russian menace, and I think the rest of us should too.
24 Feb 15 UTC Autumn, 1907: Austria is not stupid... if he helps you this game will end soon...
24 Feb 15 UTC Autumn, 1907: My fellow powers, due to the fact that one, I am in school, and two your nation's armies are on the borders of my home supply centers, I wish to remain neutral in this conflict of yours. At least for this cycle. This is a really difficult decision, and I'll have to think about it. I hope we can agree to this, for anyone who invades, I will immediatly side with that nation's adversary. Please heed my request and the choice is yours.
24 Feb 15 UTC Autumn, 1907: But i proposed you cooparation against turkey. What about it?
25 Feb 15 UTC Autumn, 1907: I think you should worry more about Germany than me, Austria you won't find harm in me for the next turns, i just wanna survive
25 Feb 15 UTC Autumn, 1907: I wish to stay out of the German/Russia conflict for this turn, And will act upon my own desires for now. Russia, thank you for the offer but I wish to not make allegiances with either Germnay and or you this turn. Good luck to you all
25 Feb 15 UTC Autumn, 1907: Turkey: you fight for survived so you can say everythink:P

Austria: ok i respect your decidion. not engage in our conflict. but cooparation against Turkey to back your land and get new is independent case. so?

Germany: is it true that we are in conflict? is it possible to cooparate or war is a foregone conclusion.
25 Feb 15 UTC Autumn, 1907: Ok Russia, I accept your offer to take Greece. However, Germany this does not make me an ally of Russia
25 Feb 15 UTC Autumn, 1907: Yeah i can say everything but the facts are that Germany is 4 four away of victory
25 Feb 15 UTC Autumn, 1907: Germany I moved the unit to Tyrolia as a buffer against any potential moves you would have made against me. Do not fear, my intentions are not hostile.
25 Feb 15 UTC Autumn, 1907: Austria, I understand your movements, and I do not see any reason for me to attack you. As I said before: Germany and Austria should not be at war.

Russia, war is never a foregone conclusion, although you seem to be trying to make it so! Your armies in Livonia and Silesia sadden me greatly.
25 Feb 15 UTC Autumn, 1907: Germany you are funny... you attacked and took denmark... and now you are writing about my movements in Silesia? So?
26 Feb 15 UTC Autumn, 1907: @Austria: Germany has 14 SC. he needs only 3 to win this game. if you dont help me immediately, this game will end in 1 or maybe 2 years.

if you help me i offer you 2way draw! (we both have 8 SC so i think it is good proposition) but we must cooparate now. or let germany win
26 Feb 15 UTC Spring, 1908: Austria, I would rather that you attack Russia. Any victory for me is far in the future because I do not have access to the requisite resources. I offer you a two way draw between us.
26 Feb 15 UTC Spring, 1908: Austria, as a sign off good faith, let's bounce Piedmont this turn.
27 Feb 15 UTC Spring, 1908: @Germany: if you take only 3 SC this game will end... so you can promise everything, because you will not need to vote draw:P
@Austria: i hope you understand this situation.
27 Feb 15 UTC Spring, 1908: It actually takes four more supply centres, and I think that's a bit too far out of my reach. I'm perfectly happy to draw with Austria, though.
27 Feb 15 UTC Spring, 1908: you could also draw with me... you should admit that you want to win... WITHOUT AUSTRIA
27 Feb 15 UTC Spring, 1908: Tbh I want to vote draw now. Next phase that's what I'm doing.
27 Feb 15 UTC Spring, 1908: Tbh I want to vote draw now. Next phase that's what I'm doing.
27 Feb 15 UTC Spring, 1908: @Germany: If you deny a draw this turn. I have a proposition. If you truly wish to have a two way draw between us, and do not plan on victory for yourself, support me into Warsaw next turn. It would prove to me and Russia, that you do not plan on a solo.
27 Feb 15 UTC Autumn, 1908: Austria, I will gladly support you into Warsaw. However, Russia will cut my support. If he cuts both Prussia and Silesia, you will be able to enter Warsaw unchallenged, though.

I suggest, additionally, that you take Rumania and Bulgaria.
28 Feb 15 UTC Autumn, 1908: I will handle that part. Just support me.
28 Feb 15 UTC Autumn, 1908: I have entered double supports.
28 Feb 15 UTC Autumn, 1908: Austria: Germany takes Skandynawia for free. He wins. .. it is good for me to give Germany free lands in this case.... Austria i dont Understand you.
28 Feb 15 UTC Autumn, 1908: Good game Germany but with this naive austria it was easy:)
01 Mar 15 UTC Autumn, 1908: Good game to you to. I was actually fully aware of Germany the entire time Russia. Problem was, I couldn't invade Germnay while engaging Italy, you, and Turkey all at the same time, And given the choice to attack you or him, he was too well defended.
In other words, if you can't beat em, join em.

But nonetheless GG.
01 Mar 15 UTC Spring, 1909: And You are aware that Germany will not vote draw?
01 Mar 15 UTC Spring, 1909: Of course I am! That's what this game is all about: saying one thing but meaning another! I could've done things differently in this game, yes, but **** happens and plans changed.
01 Mar 15 UTC Spring, 1909: Especially considering the fact that I had you and turkey right at my home centers almost the entire game. Why would I focus on Germany when I had more important problems to deal with.
02 Mar 15 UTC Spring, 1909: Austria: you are so naive...
02 Mar 15 UTC Ok buddy whatever you say:)
02 Mar 15 UTC Good game Germany. I begrudgingly admit that you did manipulate me into not attacking you, While Instead dealing with Russia/Turkey... haha oh well.
02 Mar 15 UTC Good game, everyone! I admit I couldn't have done it without the CDs. :P
