15 Mar 16 UTC Autumn, 3: Greece, I'll support you in
16 Mar 16 UTC Autumn, 3: Cheers..
16 Mar 16 UTC Autumn, 3: This has too be the most level playing field I have seen in ancient after this long..

so cool...
16 Mar 16 UTC Autumn, 3: PS .. I am taking bets on Romes disband.

I bet VIND as he cant hold it.


and a big thanks to Persia as well...( a statue is being build at the Parthenon honouring Trust and it looks just like you :-) .

There is a toilet out the back we call Rome ..
19 Mar 16 UTC Autumn, 4: Persia do you want support into VIN this move..??
19 Mar 16 UTC Autumn, 4: If it is not too late now , yes please!
19 Mar 16 UTC Autumn, 4: Carthage ..that should hurt Rome enough for you to gain quickly..We need to be strong for the end game..
25 Mar 16 UTC Spring, 6: i cant leave u greece more free persia :)
25 Mar 16 UTC Spring, 6: GameMaster: Wolfceltic was banned: Multi/no reply. The time until the next phase has been extended by one phase length to give an opportunity to replace the player.
Remember to finalize your orders if you don't want to wait, so the game isn't held up unnecessarily!
25 Mar 16 UTC Spring, 6: So I have been fighting a multi all this time..
26 Mar 16 UTC Autumn, 6: Wow can anyone explain me what happened wirh Rome? Why was he banned? Well guys well played my time its over
26 Mar 16 UTC Autumn, 6: What is multi/no reply?
27 Mar 16 UTC Autumn, 6: in some game he was playing somone questioned if he had multi accounts ..Mods email the person if they get no reply in 3 days you are banned..

It breaks the rules of the site to have multi accounts ..so its fair for all players..

Hence my Draw vote..
28 Mar 16 UTC Autumn, 6: Howdy folks, new Persia here. Greece and Rome are playing the weirdest Med game I've ever seen...
29 Mar 16 UTC Autumn, 6: Ring a ring a rosy..

2nd Rome player as well.
29 Mar 16 UTC Autumn, 6: Hey Greece, if you want my army in Neapolis to do anything for you (like convoy over to your side of the Adriatic, for example), let me know.
29 Mar 16 UTC Autumn, 6: cool will do..
31 Mar 16 UTC Autumn, 7: Fair well dear Egypt ..you will be missed..
01 Apr 16 UTC Spring, 8: are we rolling over for a Persian win or do we now try to stop him ??

can he be stopped..
01 Apr 16 UTC Spring, 8: I'm not rolling over. Let's steamroll him.
01 Apr 16 UTC Spring, 8: I suugest

Carthage you support hold me in Crete I will Support MESS to Aegean ??

Rome can I convoy MACE if it moves to EPIRU back to Rome and you get TARR back to your home land so you can build ?? Carthage not to kill you off in the mean time ??
01 Apr 16 UTC Spring, 8: Quite the puzzle you fellas have to sort out.
03 Apr 16 UTC Autumn, 8: Greece, what is my fleet doing in the Aegean?
03 Apr 16 UTC Autumn, 8: Hahaha sounds like you must've had fun last night
03 Apr 16 UTC Autumn, 8: Mace ??
03 Apr 16 UTC Autumn, 8: I ma supholdingit at the moment.
03 Apr 16 UTC Spring, 9: please support Bith to BYZ..
03 Apr 16 UTC Spring, 9: or move on BYZ from Aegean..
03 Apr 16 UTC Spring, 9: Supporting
04 Apr 16 UTC Spring, 9: Greece and Rome, I think it's time to consider the possibility that Carthage doesn't have your best interests in mind. It would be such a shame if you helped him solo by attacking me. I could probably be convinced that a draw is a good idea, but maybe that would be a tough sell for Carthage...
04 Apr 16 UTC Spring, 9: ya rekon lol.
04 Apr 16 UTC Autumn, 9: I'm open to a draw, but only if we kill Rome first.
04 Apr 16 UTC Autumn, 9: can you support VEn to RAV.

Persia go to Roma kills rome.
04 Apr 16 UTC Autumn, 9: Maybe I should let you do your own dirty work.
05 Apr 16 UTC Up to you guys if you keep me then there is a draw chance which is my end game ..but if you want a solo then you may need to chat with me to make sure its you ?
05 Apr 16 UTC I should've helped eliminate Rome, apparently I was just in a bad mood last night when I did that. I'm voting draw now. The draw should be pretty straightforward to enforce - if someone takes a shot at a solo, Greece fights them.
05 Apr 16 UTC Thanks Persia I will set alarm and wait for Rome and Carthage to draw if they don't ..well we will see.
05 Apr 16 UTC Persia bounce DAL please. and supports to RAV :

SAM is heading to RHAE.
05 Apr 16 UTC I thought I had a shot at soloing when I took over the CD, but the position I got was just too weird and I wasn't able to grab new territory quickly enough. Then Carthage started gaining ground in Egypt and I thought I'd probably lost my opportunity.
05 Apr 16 UTC Nah, I didn't think i'd be that successful against you
05 Apr 16 UTC Well, maybe we both overestimated each other.
06 Apr 16 UTC Worked out nicely though
