28 Mar 16 UTC Spring, 2001: So was Hitler.
04 Apr 16 UTC Autumn, 2003: Draw soon?
05 Apr 16 UTC Autumn, 2003: looks like it.
06 Apr 16 UTC Autumn, 2004: Turkey, you can't win, We've got a stalemate line.
06 Apr 16 UTC Autumn, 2004: Woohoo...a dead player gets to say "I told you so!" (not that anyone really cares). Had two seasons with perfect opportunities for Turkey to have turned the corner with my help, but nooooooo.....

Congrats to Spain on being there at the end.....honestly didn't think that could happen.
06 Apr 16 UTC Autumn, 2004: Me neither.
06 Apr 16 UTC Autumn, 2004: I don't think you're actually dead. I expect you're just wasting away in a Berlin jail.
06 Apr 16 UTC Autumn, 2004: In a cell together with about a dozen repeat sexual offenders.
06 Apr 16 UTC Autumn, 2004: Fled to Sicily....my people will hide me there until I can emigrate to the New World.
06 Apr 16 UTC Autumn, 2004: The New World is probably under Turkish rule at this point. You're probably better off with the sex offenders.
06 Apr 16 UTC Autumn, 2004: Come to the dark side, we have falafel
06 Apr 16 UTC Autumn, 2004: Quit falafelling about, and draw already.
07 Apr 16 UTC Autumn, 2004: Everyone deserve a chance to have falafel. The spainiards liked it last time the Turks offered it.
07 Apr 16 UTC Autumn, 2004: Yes, but we now breed selectively for maximum survival advantage; we had those poor, misguided souls who liked falafel sterilised. They all died out. We ate them. They tasted better than falafel. Draw, already.
07 Apr 16 UTC Autumn, 2004: Everyone deserve a chance to have falafel. The spainiards liked it last time the Turks offered it.
07 Apr 16 UTC Autumn, 2004: Oh dear. I think the Turk might be a robot. There's no reasoning with those bastards.
07 Apr 16 UTC Autumn, 2004: meep meep. Falafel coming through.
07 Apr 16 UTC Autumn, 2004: Thanks Britain, much appreciated.
07 Apr 16 UTC Autumn, 2004: There goes the neighbourhood.
08 Apr 16 UTC Autumn, 2004: *robot voice* "Falafel for all"
08 Apr 16 UTC Autumn, 2004: Alright, alright. Spain, for one, welcomes our new robot overlords, and accepts the terms of your falafel.
08 Apr 16 UTC Spring, 2005: Germany is not so eager to abandon sauerkraut.
08 Apr 16 UTC Spring, 2005: El alemán ES un Kraut amargo .
08 Apr 16 UTC Spring, 2005: Turkey what are your draw conditions? The way I see it you're not able to proceed in the South, nor in the North.
08 Apr 16 UTC Spring, 2005: He's waiting for one of you to get married, have a kid, get sick...ie miss a season.
08 Apr 16 UTC Spring, 2005: well that's at least another year for me.
08 Apr 16 UTC Spring, 2005: I can hold out until June 2039, IRL time, but then I have to get old and die.
08 Apr 16 UTC Spring, 2005: Oh, wait...
08 Apr 16 UTC Spring, 2005: It's ok, I've got a sitter.
08 Apr 16 UTC Spring, 2005: If that's what you're going for Turkey, you messed with the wrong man.

Even when I have a family and my kids are killing each other and burning the house down, even if my wife is screaming my head off for being a negligent husband I'm still gonna submit my orders.
08 Apr 16 UTC Spring, 2005: That sounds like fun. I'm coming round your house with popcorn.
08 Apr 16 UTC Spring, 2005: I was going to call his wife....
09 Apr 16 UTC Spring, 2005: Seriously, Britain, your only hope is that Turkey draws before you're eliminated. If you support him and he wins that's literally the same as elimination. If you help the Western coalition instead there's a chance.
09 Apr 16 UTC Germany: For those that play for record, a survive is better than a death. Both losses, but counted differently.
09 Apr 16 UTC I'm aware that some players (beginners, mostly) consider them as two different things, and this results in some really messed up play in extreme cases. I think this is one of the main reasons of the recent reforms in the scoring system.
09 Apr 16 UTC I messaged germany and poland some turns ago in order to fight Turkey. Germany refused. Poland didn't even answered me. I think Turkey is a better player and deserves to win, so I will help him from now on.
09 Apr 16 UTC And...btw, I'm not a beginner at all and I don't care to survive or to get any point.
09 Apr 16 UTC That sounds perfectly reasonable to me.
If Volga supports Gorky to Urals in spring, and then Moscow supports Volga to Gorky in autumn, that will help him a bit.
09 Apr 16 UTC Well in a game with this much luck involved I can hardly agree with your statement. Don't get me wrong, Turkey is having a great game but to state he deserves to win because he's a superior player?

And BTW I refused you bc I think Turkey'll be more inclined to draw once you're out.
09 Apr 16 UTC Turkey, lets cut the crap and draw
09 Apr 16 UTC Which half do we get, the cr or the ap?
09 Apr 16 UTC That he is not.....if he meant to solo he needed to take down Poland when England I could help. He dithered himself into this draw. Once Belgium shows up in the Urals, followed by Hamburg, things change fast.
10 Apr 16 UTC gg
10 Apr 16 UTC Personally, I hated every minute of it, but it all worked out quite well.
10 Apr 16 UTC Great game
11 Apr 16 UTC GG tributary states ;)
11 Apr 16 UTC Well played folks.
11 Apr 16 UTC GG. I cann't believe I survived this game :)
11 Apr 16 UTC I can't believe you survived this game, and I can't believe I survived both the former Anglo-German alliance and the draw.
11 Apr 16 UTC Yeah. Me too. After I lost Moscow, I thought it was game over
