01 Jun 15 UTC Spring, 1901: So I looked it up - the Isonzo River was the sight of some of the early fighting between the Italians (having joined Great Britain, France, and Russia nearly a year after the start of hostilities) and Austria-Hungary.
01 Jun 15 UTC Spring, 1901: Who named the game (Who formed this game)? Oh, hey, and GL all
01 Jun 15 UTC Spring, 1901: I checked the history out like you did, Italy. 50% of Italy's casualties from WWI were suffered during the 12 battles of Isonzo. The Austrians held the high ground.
02 Jun 15 UTC Spring, 1901: Nobody ever accused the Italians of being good in battle :-D
Actually, I, the Italian, formed this game, and so kind of cheated on the history...
02 Jun 15 UTC Autumn, 1901: I will look it up - does the Isonzo River start in Tyrolia?
02 Jun 15 UTC Autumn, 1901: Don't know but that's a good guess. A little more than 2 hours until deadline. Will France get orders in?
02 Jun 15 UTC Autumn, 1901: Even if he doesn't is anyone in a position to do anything about it?
02 Jun 15 UTC Autumn, 1901: Not I.
02 Jun 15 UTC Autumn, 1901: I know you will be shocked at this, but I don't think I can either ;)
02 Jun 15 UTC Autumn, 1901: Sorry, internet is down at home. Doing this from uni now
03 Jun 15 UTC Spring, 1902: Austria with no builds in 1901. And I thought Germany was looking bad.
04 Jun 15 UTC Autumn, 1902: And no orders submitted (or all holds, whatever), and no responses to my press at all. This game is challenging enough without playing no-press in a press game on top of it.
04 Jun 15 UTC Autumn, 1902: In case anyone is missing this, the juggernaut has indeed formed already.
04 Jun 15 UTC Autumn, 1902: Does anyone ever play LIVE games on this site? I'm forming a game tonight, starting at 7:30 PM Central standard time, with 10 minute deadlines. Closest thing to playing a face-to-face game you can get. Message me if interested.
04 Jun 15 UTC Autumn, 1902: Game ID=162271 if anyone is interested Starts in an hour
07 Jun 15 UTC Autumn, 1903: Tunis is very popular this time of year.
07 Jun 15 UTC Autumn, 1903: Hey, great weather, sunny for most of the year and the filming location of parts of Star Wars. What's not to love?
08 Jun 15 UTC Spring, 1904: Looking forward to when the puppet state of Russia, Germany, is eliminated from this game.
09 Jun 15 UTC Autumn, 1904: or not
10 Jun 15 UTC Autumn, 1904: Sorry for the delay folks.
I have a question into the moderator about how this software works handling builds
I hope to have an answer very soon.
I am relatively new to this site and do not know how the software works in this particular situation so please bear with me.
10 Jun 15 UTC Autumn, 1904: I got my answer from the mods. Thank you for your patience.
15 Jun 15 UTC Good game
