28 Apr 16 UTC Autumn, 1901: Товарищ , швеция в вашей, норвегия моя. Если вы строите в St Pete мы будем бороться

Tovarishch , shvetsiya v vashey, norvegiya moya. Yesli vy stroite v St Pete my budem borot'sya
28 Apr 16 UTC Autumn, 1901: lol
28 Apr 16 UTC Autumn, 1901: Who you calling tzar?
28 Apr 16 UTC Autumn, 1901: Szczerze mówiąc Warszawa to nie Rosja, i nigdy nie będzie
28 Apr 16 UTC Autumn, 1901: Didn't know that Germany, I always thought that area was considered open territory for any invasion from the south, east or north. Give the number of times it's been overrun it's no surprise the inhabitants are paranoid. Especially in 1909.
28 Apr 16 UTC Autumn, 1901: So, were is Hamlet going to fall? His cousins in England are very interested in his future home
28 Apr 16 UTC Autumn, 1901: Hamlet is prey of a dilemma, to live, to die
29 Apr 16 UTC Autumn, 1901: Hmm, this is an interesting opening for year 1.
I'm inclined to go against Austria here.

@France: are you interested in a truce? I'm not interested to move your way as long as you don't build a fleet in Marseilles and don't move your existing fleet into the mediterrean.
If you do any of those, I'll be forced to defend against you. So I hope we can agree on leaving each other alone.

@Turkey, are you interested in working together?
I see you are moving against Russia, and I can help you with that by keeping Austria of your back.
If you don't build an extra fleet, we can work together. (you won't need it against Russia)
We could split Serbia and Greece if you want. I'm not sure which of the 2 you would prefer.
29 Apr 16 UTC Autumn, 1901: @Italy, I am interested. I want to take Rumania and Serbia and you can take the others. Just look out for a usual backstabb from France.
29 Apr 16 UTC Autumn, 1901: @Russia, I knew I can't trust you. Do you think I will just let the Black sea be open? This means war!
29 Apr 16 UTC Autumn, 1901: How else am I supposed to take a move into Armenia?
29 Apr 16 UTC Autumn, 1901: Hey Italy, the Mediterranean is not of my concern, I will be happy to keep our truce
29 Apr 16 UTC Autumn, 1901: England, I think we both appreciate leaving the channel as a dmz. Would you like to continue our cooperation?
29 Apr 16 UTC Autumn, 1901: I hate the chunnel, it's dark, slow and crowded. I'll never go there.
30 Apr 16 UTC Spring, 1902: that is good to know. Then I'd recommend we both keep it that way
30 Apr 16 UTC Spring, 1902: Then where are your fleet going France? If not to the English channel and not to the mediterenean?
30 Apr 16 UTC Spring, 1902: purely defensive mon ami, purely defensive!
30 Apr 16 UTC Autumn, 1902: Interesting defensive move Mr. Frog
02 May 16 UTC Autumn, 1902: So my german friend, I will help you catch frogs in any way I can. As you can see his moves into my marine channels will not net him any additional forces. It does mean that at leas 2 of his 5 forces are tied up in keeping me at bay. So, I hope to see you help crush him with my help.
02 May 16 UTC Autumn, 1902: Dear Winston, I'll take care of the baguette-eater from my side. My regards to Her Majesty
02 May 16 UTC Autumn, 1902: hello all just joined in Russia's place
02 May 16 UTC Autumn, 1902: Privet
02 May 16 UTC Autumn, 1902: I would like to welcome the new Tsar to the party!
02 May 16 UTC Spring, 1903: Scandanavia is well governed at this time. I'm looking to expand he majesty's artwork collection, Liz really likes those bold reds and golds from her overthrown cousin's collections.
04 May 16 UTC Autumn, 1903: Please let Her Majesty know that people from Rurh love fries and and and that they are a thankful nation.
04 May 16 UTC Autumn, 1903: And and and we love fries with vinegar, but not frog fries. Lord Admiral Nelson is moving fleets into position to make sure armies get to Frogland to help our Aryan pals.

How bout them Romans? Who'd of thunk? time make nice nice with them
06 May 16 UTC Autumn, 1904: Hey England I see you are interested in making friends with me? I'm actually interested as well. I can however not make friends with Germany(if he would even want to) because he is basicly primed to attack me.
As long as you are in the alliance with Germany you will not be able to grow very much Stp will probably be one of the last SC you take because you have no armies. Maybe Brest but that is already unlikely because it will probably go to Germany if you keep helping him.
However if you help me combat Germany you will probably get most of the SC because his entire north will be empty because his armies will be fighting me and France.
If you also make peace with France(which I suppose France would also like at this point) you both have the resources to stop Germany and push him back.

What do you think England?
And what do you think France?
06 May 16 UTC Autumn, 1904: France: I'll support hold MAO in case England doesn't want to ally with us but I hope it won't be needed.
I can also help you get Marseilles back if you want.
06 May 16 UTC Autumn, 1904: as you well imagined I am more then interested!
06 May 16 UTC Autumn, 1904: Let me talk to the Queen about this unusual request Cesar. I know she will have a difficult time trusty the frogs, but stranger bedmates have developed.

The thing is all our cousins are from Northern Europe and now that we've liberated St Pete the white russian relatives are gonna want some part of the plunder.

We'll be back to you soon with either a well encrypted telegram, or our moves will tell the tale.
07 May 16 UTC Autumn, 1904: italy, would you consider supporting me into marseilles from spain?
07 May 16 UTC Autumn, 1904: France I'll support you into Marseilles next turn. I had to defend Tyrolia last turn, this won't be necessary next turn. So I can support you.
I'll also support hold MAO again so soon England will have to realise he will not get through and he better starts defending against Germany
07 May 16 UTC Autumn, 1904: Her Majesty, free the English Channel, we'll use our three fleets to let you enter Mid-Atlantic Ocean. I'll take France by land, you can freely navigate the seas.
07 May 16 UTC Autumn, 1904: Oh my, the Queen is much upset by her German cousin moving into our waterways and threatening our northern province. She is determined to retaliate and cannot let this insult stand. We are trying to talk her down but not sure we can. A German sub in the N Sea is unacceptable under any condition, we need assurance it will be removed
08 May 16 UTC Spring, 1905: France, I'll support MAO again. I can support your fleet into Marseilles as well, although in the long run we might need your fleet to defend MAO, which won't work from Marseilles obv. Also having an army in Marseilles might work better because it can help support the rest of the attack on Germany.

What do you think about me taking Marseilles with my army so that I can support you in your further attack on Germany(support Par->Bur later for example) and you keeping your fleet in Spain to help the defence against England.

It is your call. If you really want Marseilles I'll support you in it with both GoL and Pie, but I think it might cost us in the long run.

Let me know what you think.
08 May 16 UTC Spring, 1905: Germany is a trustful ally. There is no intent to threat the kingdom of Her Majesty (only one fleet owned and no land troops facing the north sea) instead the fleet will sail to the English Channel, help England conquer the Atlantic Ocean and then rest the sails on the safe Harbour of Brest. Hiberia and the seas belong to Her Majesty.
08 May 16 UTC Spring, 1905: Her Majesty has reminded us that if Musslini continues as he is we will all be under his thumb in a few years. She insisted we all work against such a threat.

I will work with the frogs and try to keep them from turning back into tadpoles

09 May 16 UTC Spring, 1905: Good to your word, but we're stuck. Need ideas or Italy wins
09 May 16 UTC Autumn, 1905: Irish sea to NAO, ENG to IrishSea, NS to ENG
09 May 16 UTC Autumn, 1905: Yeah, let's try that. Although a simply mao - nao will bounce that move out. I don't see any other moves that work. Here's hoping
10 May 16 UTC Spring, 1906: Well fellow despots, it don't look good. Ankara is gone, Sevastopol is next to fall and then either Moscow or Warsaw. Spain is toast and right behind that is Portugal. That makes at least 18 and as many as 20 SC's for our Italian friend.

I'm open to any ideas that prevents a solo, I don't see any but I'm not the sharpest knife in the drawer.
10 May 16 UTC Spring, 1906: Luckely I have a sharp knife ;)
10 May 16 UTC Spring, 1906: England I think one of your commanders is drunk. Or he is scared of Romans :)
11 May 16 UTC Dammit I told boaty mcboatface to lay off the rum. I guess he wanted a piece of that cute blond iceland ass before the world ends. Maybe i should have a pint or two. Hey russia thanks for helping italy get the solo you dirt bag
11 May 16 UTC Well I perfectly understand Russia. Who attacked Russia from the beginning? Turkey, England and Germany. Who never attacked Russia and is fighting all the countries that have attacked Russia? Italy.

If it is not possible anymore to stop someone from soloing, it often is more fun to just get back at the people that destroyed your game instead of trying to get them to obtain a draw where they will be the ones getting the most points.
11 May 16 UTC That's a good point Cesar but I still decry the tactic. I know Russia hates me, I hate me too, but that's the nature of the game. I could have taken German SC's to boost my points but that would be a crummy move
11 May 16 UTC You should have worked together with France if you really wanted to stop me. That was the only way.
I don't understand that you didn't try this for real.

The only question left now is wether I take the solo in this year or the next. I hope it will be this year as I don't like games to drag on for no real reason.
12 May 16 UTC i hate to tell you guys but i'm on no sides just surviving.
12 May 16 UTC Well you did survive so congratz i guess.
I'm happy we don't have to play another year.
And Germany what was the plan with moving Kiel to Denmark, looks a bit like an odd move. Unless you wanted it to end and moved away so I would get to 18 SC, but then the move to Warsaw doesn't make sense.
