17 Aug 17 UTC Spring, 1901: Encouraging, for a game that is meant to be looking for dedicated players, that we are well on course for an NMR in Spring '01...
17 Aug 17 UTC Spring, 1901: That's how we weed them out haha.
17 Aug 17 UTC Spring, 1901: Its silly, but I actually dreamed this night of missing out my first turn in this game and about how ironic this was in this setup.
17 Aug 17 UTC Spring, 1901: Haha hilarious.
17 Aug 17 UTC Autumn, 1901: Germany, nice moves. I haven't seen that done by Germany often, but let's see how it works out for you.
17 Aug 17 UTC Autumn, 1901: Just going to call it out so everyone knows. There's an Austria-Turkey Alliance
17 Aug 17 UTC Autumn, 1901: Are you getting desperate comrade?
17 Aug 17 UTC Autumn, 1901: Nah, just calling you out so everyone knows.
18 Aug 17 UTC Autumn, 1901: Ruh roh.
18 Aug 17 UTC Autumn, 1901: And here I thoguht russia and germany had an alliance. Now germany is trying to take sweden out from under him.
25 Aug 17 UTC Autumn, 1903: Long live the Austro-Turkish alliance.
25 Aug 17 UTC Autumn, 1903: ;)
25 Aug 17 UTC Autumn, 1903: Good Bye! I enjoyed this game despite being Austria and despite being destroyed. Thanks BloodyItaly and Uljanow for a fun time!
25 Aug 17 UTC Autumn, 1903: Oh, and Kench to!
25 Aug 17 UTC Autumn, 1903: It was my very pleasure, ubercacher, to stab you in round one and onwards, didnt think it would play out this smoothely though
25 Aug 17 UTC Autumn, 1903: you call this smoothly? You have a powerful France on one side and a powerful Turkey on the other. What do you think their next target will be?
25 Aug 17 UTC Autumn, 1903: You are forgetting the powerful Germany! Mh, maybe we can just live on happily ever after? That would be my best case scenario.
But honestly, I did not have many games with Italy where I was so firmly established in Austria after Builds 1903. None, to be exact.
25 Aug 17 UTC Autumn, 1903: Germany will not be powerful much longer. Do you see the French units poised on his border?
28 Aug 17 UTC Autumn, 1904: See? No more "powerful" Germany.
30 Aug 17 UTC Autumn, 1904: BloodyItaly? Did you just NMR? I was hoping that you could have gotten into the league.
30 Aug 17 UTC Autumn, 1904: Very disappointing... Mostly because it gives Italy options now ;)
30 Aug 17 UTC Autumn, 1904: Yessss indeed very disappointing. A shame to loose an ally this way. And a shame to loose the other one another way.

Anyhow, I got a proposal to make that might very well sound ridiculous to Kench: Germany and I came to the insight that a coordinated fight against you would be very much benefitial, and not as a lost cause as it might look if Bloody really drops out. Anyhow, if we manage to establish solid defenses before you reach the sweet 18, would you be willing to draw?
30 Aug 17 UTC Autumn, 1904: NEVER SURRENDER (*cough* England *cough*)
30 Aug 17 UTC Autumn, 1904: In fact, both England and, it would seem, Turkey have a lot to learn from Austria, who kept fighting despite their impending and inescapable death... Muchos kudos to uber
30 Aug 17 UTC Autumn, 1904: Thank you!
04 Sep 17 UTC Spring, 1906: Nice builds you got there...
Would be a shame if something..
Blocked your home SC.
Damn!
04 Sep 17 UTC Spring, 1906: #gutted
05 Sep 17 UTC Spring, 1906: Sneaky Italian badger. Now how am I going to take Rome back?
05 Sep 17 UTC Autumn, 1906: Italy firmly protests this outrageous attack on Italian territorial integrity!
06 Sep 17 UTC Autumn, 1906: You still have 18 France.
06 Sep 17 UTC Autumn, 1906: I don't think it do Austria, not yet...
06 Sep 17 UTC Autumn, 1906: *I don't think I do
06 Sep 17 UTC Autumn, 1906: You do.
06 Sep 17 UTC Autumn, 1906: Don't count your chickens before the fat lady sings!
06 Sep 17 UTC Autumn, 1906: Yeah, I guess so.
08 Sep 17 UTC Spring, 1907: If Kench does not miss the next round, this game looks decided to me. Congrats.
08 Sep 17 UTC Spring, 1907: And that (I think) is that. Cheers for the game ladies and gents, it's been a lot of fun!
08 Sep 17 UTC Spring, 1907: It really was. Too bad that we had two civil disorders
08 Sep 17 UTC Spring, 1907: Cheeky final push by Turkey to get rid of Germany in case of a draw ;)
08 Sep 17 UTC Spring, 1907: Yeah, England giving up definitely helped give me a bump. I have to say, I don't think it was the deciding factor, but I'll admit that it was fortuitous!
08 Sep 17 UTC gg, and congrats. I called it.
08 Sep 17 UTC In 1903
08 Sep 17 UTC Sure you did, but I don't like saying it until it's certain ;)
08 Sep 17 UTC I understand completely, I would have done the same in your position.
09 Sep 17 UTC gg
09 Sep 17 UTC :D Why though, Turkey?
09 Sep 17 UTC Cheers ladies and gents, well played!
09 Sep 17 UTC Yeah GG Kench, good stabbing you die there
09 Sep 17 UTC Admiral, what is the State of the Imperatorum league?
09 Sep 17 UTC Good game. The Admiral quit a few of the tryout games, I don't know if it's going anywhere.
