Game drawn
23 Dec 16 UTC Autumn, 1999: Btw I mean maybe up there
23 Dec 16 UTC Autumn, 1999: I think we should leave four
23 Dec 16 UTC Autumn, 1999: Or five, no offense but Italy and Russia will be dead in three years
23 Dec 16 UTC Autumn, 1999: Then Germany or England win that war or I split them with Spain while turkey makes a mad dash for me
23 Dec 16 UTC Autumn, 1999: Let's all kill Poland now
23 Dec 16 UTC Autumn, 1999: Yeah. I was inclined to add you to the four player draw but whatever
23 Dec 16 UTC Autumn, 1999: Your up late
23 Dec 16 UTC Autumn, 1999: Plus if I fall, Spain gets all of it then Germany dies. But that would be so much time!
23 Dec 16 UTC I would like to draw now please.
23 Dec 16 UTC no keep going till everyone is dead :D
23 Dec 16 UTC fine I'll select drawer as well :D
23 Dec 16 UTC I wish I could separate my variant scores from classic dip.
23 Dec 16 UTC Well I learned my lesson: never attempt a invasion of England if you aren't France.
23 Dec 16 UTC I thought it would be quick and painless while Spain and Italy divided France.
23 Dec 16 UTC Well played, Spain. the reasoning for my draw vote was because I knew I would've had to stab either you or Poland and I knew whichever one I stabbed would've allowed the other to benefit to take me down.

I was trying to orchestrate an alliance between Germany and England to fight Spain, but that unfortunately fell through.

Overall, it was a fun game and thank you all for playing :)
23 Dec 16 UTC lol Germany
23 Dec 16 UTC Yeah, that alliance almost succeeded to. I was looking for any excuse to stop fighting England. But that would've ended with a Trukish solo for sure.
23 Dec 16 UTC My whole game was just a big skirmish between me and Germany
23 Dec 16 UTC It was boring
23 Dec 16 UTC I tried to get Poland to help me, but he didn't
23 Dec 16 UTC :') That's what I was aiming for. I was a little disappointed that we kept Russia and Italy in the draw, but you can't beat 29 points either.
23 Dec 16 UTC If we waited a little bit I would probably be dead
23 Dec 16 UTC Cuz Spain
23 Dec 16 UTC yeah, that's what I was hoping for. Spain to distract a couple of your units to allow for me to breakthrough and finally start getting some builds again.
23 Dec 16 UTC Not sure what I would have don then though. Probably start working for a draw.
23 Dec 16 UTC How was my diplomacy? Was it anywhere successful or convincing?
23 Dec 16 UTC I just agreed so me and Germany can have peace
23 Dec 16 UTC gg all, I always enjoy the modern variant.
23 Dec 16 UTC Rematch?
23 Dec 16 UTC I will
23 Dec 16 UTC Feel free to send me a PM with the game info, I'd love to play.

23 Dec 16 UTC joined. But why unranked?
23 Dec 16 UTC I prefer unranked for variants.
23 Dec 16 UTC OK
23 Dec 16 UTC Let's hope I get a country with more involvement rather than one long and unending war.
23 Dec 16 UTC With one country
23 Dec 16 UTC You gotta negotiate, it's not the country alone that gets you stuck :)

23 Dec 16 UTC @England: if either of us could have ensured Poland's support the deadlock wouldn't have occurred. It was his fickleness that kept it going. And interesting.
23 Dec 16 UTC I agree Germany. He helps me then you. I tried to get Spain and Italy to team on you but then Spain attacked Italy and got too big.
23 Dec 16 UTC Poland and I were both trying to keep the balance so you would be deadlocked intentionally.
23 Dec 16 UTC I attacked Italy to maintain that balance but also because I didn't think Italy could hold his own against Turkey. Plus centers had to come from somewhere...
23 Dec 16 UTC Yeah then I would always get behind Germany lines when he pushed me out
23 Dec 16 UTC Why did we draw?
23 Dec 16 UTC I mean I wanted to. But I would have beaten Russia and Italy quickly. I did love England and Germanys reactions to my switching sides
23 Dec 16 UTC I enjoyed playing with all of you.
23 Dec 16 UTC Personally I drew because I didn't want big points from a 3 way draw. I felt game actually had more play, but end seemed inevitable 3 way anyway...
24 Dec 16 UTC I made a forum post. Might help promote if you guys post there that you're joining.
24 Dec 16 UTC Will do.
24 Dec 16 UTC good game thoroughly enjoyed thank you :)
