16 Oct 16 UTC Autumn, 2: Sounds good to me.
17 Oct 16 UTC Spring, 3: Egypt. I wanna be buddies with you
17 Oct 16 UTC Spring, 3: I'm sorry Carthage, but you're too powerful.
17 Oct 16 UTC Spring, 3: Well, that is *one* stance to take. attack the big fish cause he's big. It's worked out in prison movies!

I was offering you friendship though.
17 Oct 16 UTC Spring, 3: Persia, what would it take to get you onto Team Carthage-Persia? effectively renamed, Carthsia?
17 Oct 16 UTC Spring, 3: Well considering that Egypt and I are both focusing on other enemies and I need all my strength to fight Greece I can't say that I'm interested, thank you for the offer.
17 Oct 16 UTC Autumn, 3: Sure thing. I just hate having two fronts.

Which its so hard to not do on this map if you can't make friends.
17 Oct 16 UTC Autumn, 3: Yeah, I understand. But you are also the dominant player so it's tough to do that. Damnit, just realized that I messed up a move order and I'm kinda frustrated.
18 Oct 16 UTC Autumn, 3: Egypt can you support me into Egyptian Sea from Syrian Sea with Cyprus? I'm not sure if you'd be comfortable with that, but if you do that Greece can't stop my fleet.
18 Oct 16 UTC Autumn, 3: Sure Persia, I can do that for you. I'm not terribly comfortable with you keeping a fleet there for too long for my own safety, but for temporary stay I will support you.
18 Oct 16 UTC Autumn, 3: Thank you Egypt, I promise it won't be there for long, especially since it's an important space for you.
18 Oct 16 UTC Autumn, 3: Carthage, with the fall of rome very near, I'd like to point out the eastern alliance, Alone I will be destroyed, and you will then face a combined effort too large to take on alone, If I attack persia and you attack egypt, we will come out as the dominant force, as we together control more supply centers, what do you say?
18 Oct 16 UTC Autumn, 3: Persia, ready up please
18 Oct 16 UTC Autumn, 3: See the fear at my proposition
18 Oct 16 UTC Autumn, 3: Just trying to keep the game moving. Greece, I have no qualms with you. If you want to partner with Carthage, go ahead, but he is already too strong, and if you help him defeat me then he will undoubtedly get to 18 centers.
18 Oct 16 UTC Autumn, 3: Sorry about that!
19 Oct 16 UTC Spring, 4: Greece, you have my word here: if you don't attack me, I'll be happy to let you handle Persia, and myself with Egypt.

As I said before, I hate fighting two fronts. Egypt is being pissy cause he didn't grow as much as he should have early game (although I find it particularly difficult to play egypt. Not that I have much experience in the Ancient Med anyway.)

In short Greece, I propose a non aggression pact. Lets talk before Attacking centers so We don't bounce each other in Rome. ... and soon we can build forces up to head east. not necessarily an alliance, but I don't wanna go to war.
22 Oct 16 UTC Autumn, 4: Hey Egypt, I want to thank you for being understanding and let you know that if I continue to advance against Greece I'm happy to allow you help with my fleets.
22 Oct 16 UTC Autumn, 4: Greece, what are we gonna do about Naples?
22 Oct 16 UTC Spring, 5: Let to me?
22 Oct 16 UTC Spring, 5: you take it, i cant sacrifice 2 units to get it
22 Oct 16 UTC Spring, 5: Persia, I want to move out of Cyprus. Would you prefer I go cilician or Syrian Sea
23 Oct 16 UTC Spring, 5: Sorry about that! I would have preferred Syrian, but if you could move there this turn that would be great.
24 Oct 16 UTC Autumn, 5: Persia, how about now?
24 Oct 16 UTC Autumn, 5: How about what?
24 Oct 16 UTC Autumn, 5: Care to help against Egypt now?
24 Oct 16 UTC Autumn, 5: No. Why would I betray someone who has been on perfectly friendly terms with me? We would both lose as you and Greece swallow us up.
24 Oct 16 UTC Autumn, 5: Also thank you for moving out Egypt.
26 Oct 16 UTC Autumn, 6: Carthage, could messian sea support the unit in crete, If I can hold for another turn I can turn the tide
26 Oct 16 UTC Autumn, 6: Messenian sea support holds Crete.
26 Oct 16 UTC Autumn, 6: Persia, can you support my fleet into Egyptian Sea?
26 Oct 16 UTC Autumn, 6: Yes of course!
26 Oct 16 UTC Autumn, 6: Well I managed to recover from that turn I missed thankfully. Greece, this is really annoying.
26 Oct 16 UTC Autumn, 6: Is it time for a draw?
26 Oct 16 UTC Autumn, 6: I'd agree to one. You and I are stalemating pretty hard here, and I have too many games going as is.
26 Oct 16 UTC Autumn, 6: I'm fine with a draw as well.
26 Oct 16 UTC Autumn, 6: Greece?
26 Oct 16 UTC Autumn, 6: Voting draw.
27 Oct 16 UTC Autumn, 6: Carthage, how many games you got going right now? I try not to get into more than 3 at a time
27 Oct 16 UTC Something like 20.
27 Oct 16 UTC GREECE!
27 Oct 16 UTC Just got on, pleasure drawing with you all
27 Oct 16 UTC Good game.
27 Oct 16 UTC That said Egypt, I like to play a lot of different game modes, that's why.

... I will be slowly phasing out of that many though, as I got battlefield 1, and hopefully, that will become life.
27 Oct 16 UTC Oh geez, that's gonna take up a lot of your time. Good game all!
27 Oct 16 UTC Wow, sounds like a lot. Good game everyone, I enjoyed it
27 Oct 16 UTC Also I have a quick question. What happens if you lose all your coin things?
27 Oct 16 UTC No idea, I hope it never comes to that
27 Oct 16 UTC I dunno... I am better than that. :p ... I guess you could remake your account and do that.
27 Oct 16 UTC Oh I'm not worried about it haha, just was curious
