Game drawn
27 Dec 16 UTC Spring, 1904: I want to see the Austrian fleet get to Norway
27 Dec 16 UTC Spring, 1904: I always love an underdog.
27 Dec 16 UTC Autumn, 1904: i get that italy would lose a build if i keep him out of marseilles, but germany will also lose one if i keep him out of paris since he is about to lose berlin. difficult choices.
27 Dec 16 UTC Autumn, 1904: *french parachutists hit Berlin*
*world amazed*
*president accused of abducting Wright brothers*
27 Dec 16 UTC Autumn, 1904: he's not losing berlin to me. he's losing it to the russian fleet in the baltic.
27 Dec 16 UTC Autumn, 1904: Ah, yes, because the invisible wall between Munich and Berlin will stop him bouncing him out.
27 Dec 16 UTC Autumn, 1904: oops, you're right. though he might lose denmark or kiel. not enough to cove all three.
27 Dec 16 UTC Autumn, 1904: Kiel can be covered by fleets, and there are two adjacent, so unless Germany is bull-rushing me this turn, he should be able to spare the troops.
27 Dec 16 UTC Autumn, 1904: right. probably still losing warsaw though.
28 Dec 16 UTC Autumn, 1904: what a world, what a world..
28 Dec 16 UTC Autumn, 1904: Yes - that was annoying. I, meanwhile, appear to have attacked one ally whilst being stabbed by the other. Bum!
Germany - can we make friends?
28 Dec 16 UTC Autumn, 1904: told you you should have built a couple fleets
28 Dec 16 UTC Autumn, 1904: Yes - you did mention that
28 Dec 16 UTC Autumn, 1904: i assumed that italy taking buda was pre-arranged between the two of you though to be honest. it's not like he can keep it if you want to take it back.
28 Dec 16 UTC Autumn, 1904: I like the way you think
29 Dec 16 UTC Autumn, 1904: I don't know... Vienna is feeling pretty lucking with the upcoming bounces...
31 Dec 16 UTC Autumn, 1905: Game looks pretty interesting. Good luck folks... I shall lurk in the shadows..
01 Jan 17 UTC Autumn, 1905: Aha damn, I was clinging on to Turkey's loyalty so far... It seems I have been played
01 Jan 17 UTC Autumn, 1905: I even made a mistake with the Rome move!
01 Jan 17 UTC Autumn, 1905: Why would you trust Turkey to not go for the solo? I'm just curious. He wasn't going anywhere against our 3 way front, and all of us were too big to be eliminated from the equation before Turkey took the game down.
01 Jan 17 UTC Autumn, 1905: Because he still needs 6 SCs
01 Jan 17 UTC Autumn, 1905: Don't blame Italy - hell, I trusted Turkey not to go for the solo up until this afternoon.
01 Jan 17 UTC Autumn, 1905: You were the only one who could be eliminated, you were in the middle of three large-ish powers
01 Jan 17 UTC Autumn, 1905: But anyway, had I made the right moves and eliminated Austria, I think we would have had a strong chance of stopping him
01 Jan 17 UTC Autumn, 1905: The question really is: Why did you think you had a chance at a 3 way with either Turkey or England Germany?
01 Jan 17 UTC Autumn, 1905: I didn't. I was prepared for the 4 way, which I said all along sir.
01 Jan 17 UTC Autumn, 1905: The question really is: Why did you think you had a chance at a 3 way with either Turkey or England Germany?
02 Jan 17 UTC Spring, 1906: Austria is a legend.
03 Jan 17 UTC Autumn, 1906: How long do I have to hold on to be part of a draw?
03 Jan 17 UTC Autumn, 1906: they will knock me out this turn. then it's just a question of whether turkey agrees to a draw before germany or italy decides to just take rome back from you. the points system here, which forces an even split between all survivors, incentives them to minimize the number of survivors though...
04 Jan 17 UTC Autumn, 1906: Fwiw I've had a draw vote up for a couple turns now, not that I thought it would happen.
04 Jan 17 UTC Autumn, 1906: England, you were right, Austria is a legend.
04 Jan 17 UTC Autumn, 1906: Meanwhile, I can't even remember to change my orders.
05 Jan 17 UTC Just a reminder, I'm currently voting draw, feel free to join me, any/all of you.
06 Jan 17 UTC Well done all - my timing was a little off and you were well organized.
06 Jan 17 UTC Good game guys, Austria I'm pleased you were able to get a piece since you fought hard and well. Of course I would have thrown you under the bus if necessary, but I'm glad it went the other way.
06 Jan 17 UTC The Austrian dream lives!
Good Game everyone, I'm glad to have played with you all.
06 Jan 17 UTC No way! I did not expect that!
06 Jan 17 UTC Enjoyed that game, highest stakes I've been in so it was definitely interesting to see how that ramps up the pressure.
06 Jan 17 UTC I was certain that there was a secret alliance with Turkey Germany and England that would secretly eliminate me and Austria
06 Jan 17 UTC i'm a little surprised that turkey went for it.
07 Jan 17 UTC He had to...his move to Livonia sank him. Moscow was open, he's bounced there and the Livonia army destroyed. His whole flank would collapse.
07 Jan 17 UTC Nah - Armenia comes through in time. Problem is that with Austria back on the Italian's side and England in the Med I'm never going to break through the fleet wall.
07 Jan 17 UTC You wouldn't need to, you could just walk down Italy with two armies probably and then kick out Austria and get through the fleet wall on that move?
07 Jan 17 UTC Only 17
07 Jan 17 UTC Need StP, Berlin, Munich, Marseilles or Spain - none of which are going to happen.
07 Jan 17 UTC Once you had fleets in the med I think Mar/ Spain was possible... In any case, could have wiped out me and Austria...
07 Jan 17 UTC MAO,NAO,Por,Spa,Mar,Gas is unbeatable as a defensive line - could have eliminated you and Austria but I like you both and don't hold with thinning draws
07 Jan 17 UTC Good game all
07 Jan 17 UTC I agree with MAO...
