12 Feb 17 UTC Spring, 1999: Texas is awfully quiet.
12 Feb 17 UTC Spring, 1999: What happened? Why did that repeat?
12 Feb 17 UTC Spring, 1999: Isn't Brad that quarterback from american football?
12 Feb 17 UTC Spring, 1999: Anyone want to fess up? This game can go quickly if so
12 Feb 17 UTC Spring, 1999: It must be New York. He is asking me some funny questions.
12 Feb 17 UTC Spring, 1999: Is there something here I am missing?
12 Feb 17 UTC Spring, 1999: I feel like I walked in on a cult gathering.
12 Feb 17 UTC Spring, 1999: No Brad in Florida. You are not missing anything.
12 Feb 17 UTC Spring, 1999: potato
13 Feb 17 UTC Autumn, 1999: Interesting civil disorder
13 Feb 17 UTC Autumn, 1999: Interesting civil disorder
13 Feb 17 UTC Autumn, 1999: maybe that was Brad. you guys scared him off
24 Feb 17 UTC Autumn, 2002: The thirst some people have on this game is real
24 Feb 17 UTC Autumn, 2002: leave me alone :c
03 Mar 17 UTC Spring, 2004: I can't wait for this BC-HL showdown. BC doesn't speak English well and HL has stabbed 3 people in this game. LOL
07 Mar 17 UTC Spring, 2005: Do you remember this comment?

I can't wait for this BC-HL showdown. BC doesn't speak English well and HL has stabbed 3 people in this game. LOL

I do not know English to talk to you.
If you want to talk to me, be it in Spanish or Portuguese.
07 Mar 17 UTC Spring, 2005: Mais oui
07 Mar 17 UTC Spring, 2005: k
10 Mar 17 UTC Autumn, 2005: Thanks Florida. Great ally
10 Mar 17 UTC Autumn, 2005: Oh just messed up an order...mass should be mine -.-

Sorry
10 Mar 17 UTC Autumn, 2005: Oh just messed up an order...mass should be mine -.-

Sorry
10 Mar 17 UTC Autumn, 2005: :(
14 Mar 17 UTC Autumn, 2006: Sorry, my fault on orders
14 Mar 17 UTC Autumn, 2006: Left for a couple of days but didn't realize that I wouldn't have internet
14 Mar 17 UTC Autumn, 2006: Take all the time you need.
19 Mar 17 UTC Spring, 2008: You know what this game really demonstrates. How unbalanced the game can be without California. I mean, it was exploited extremely well by BC which demonstrated really good play. They played well and their alliance with Heartland combined with some pretty poor play on Quebec's part led to a large amount of their success however the map, without california, leaves a huge area of SCs to be taken without any threat. The fighting in the Caribbean was pretty normal though Cuba clearly came out strong. However without the balance between BC and California which also forces Texas, Mexico and the Heartland to make difficult decisions early it left the west with a a couple of powers that were able to expand with little pressure while increasing pressure on the east.
19 Mar 17 UTC Spring, 2008: Fair assessment
19 Mar 17 UTC Spring, 2008: I think that me and New York also failed to respond to the situation fast enough though I recognized it quite early but thought that i would have more time. I don't know what New York knew or didn't know throughout the game
20 Mar 17 UTC Spring, 2008: I suggest with NY now gone and Florida's days numbered we think about calling a draw once Peru and Florida are gone.
20 Mar 17 UTC Spring, 2008: So rude
21 Mar 17 UTC Spring, 2008: Why? BC can win. They have the inevitable upper hand in any fight between you two and cuba sure can't break through any more. BC controls mexican coast and hence, mexico. They also have pretty good access to the north east and the ability to fight you troop for troop on land. Also, my days aren't that numbered. I certainly won't survive this game but I'll last for a year or two unless Cuba turns on me.
21 Mar 17 UTC Spring, 2008: lol I like this Florida guy
21 Mar 17 UTC Autumn, 2008: Clearly, Florida is a strong player, prob wise that I attacked him fore he attacked me. However, Its just as easy and faster to go for a Draw ..Esp if Cuba does attack florida quickly to end this. Winning sometimes is best when shared, dont you know?
21 Mar 17 UTC Autumn, 2008: Lol nah not when it's with stabbers
21 Mar 17 UTC Autumn, 2008: ouch
21 Mar 17 UTC Autumn, 2008: I am fine with the stabbing that went on and even the heartlands decision to attack me. I just don't understand why BC would ever accept anything short of a victory at this point
27 Mar 17 UTC Autumn, 2011: Are we thinking about ending this? I'm pretty sure BC can't win. And Heartland, please respond to my messages. I want to get this game over with.
27 Mar 17 UTC Autumn, 2011: I am sorry long weekend. Yes, I know and its my understand once Florida is down we draw it.
28 Mar 17 UTC Autumn, 2012: Whelp this game is going into over time...sadly
30 Mar 17 UTC Autumn, 2013: BC vote for the draw...
30 Mar 17 UTC Autumn, 2013: BC probs wants to solo still
30 Mar 17 UTC Autumn, 2013: Clearly, but its a backwards way of thinking. I mean this is a draw size so he would be better off ending it as a draw than going for a solo and dragging it on.
31 Mar 17 UTC Thank you for Drawing BC, good game all esp Florida and BC. NY you deserved to die :)
31 Mar 17 UTC Good game, I guess we saw this result coming years ago. I am pretty surprised Florida survived. Thanks for the loyal partnership Florida.
31 Mar 17 UTC Thanks for remaining loyal to me too.
31 Mar 17 UTC Florida is really an insanely defensive position. You need two ships to break it.
31 Mar 17 UTC It was never my intention to win alone and I always respected my alliance with Heartland, but when I saw that he was not going to play with me because he wanted a tie with Cuba I decided to attack him to see if he changed his mind.
I did not think it would be good to propose an alliance to Cuba, where we would surely have gained tranquility.
Good game. Thank you
31 Mar 17 UTC WOOHOO I SUCCESSFULLY KILLED BRAD
31 Mar 17 UTC Whose Brad?
31 Mar 17 UTC Though, well played everyone. Especially you Heartland. You made decisions I thought were idiotic but it worked out well. You played your hand better than I think I would have and were quite successful due to it
