27 Feb 10 UTC Autumn, 1906: BTW, I think the Med is officially stopped up.
27 Feb 10 UTC Autumn, 1906: This is going to end up as a 3-way draw.
27 Feb 10 UTC Autumn, 1906: I hope.
27 Feb 10 UTC Autumn, 1906: ditto, I can't see why a 3-way couldn't happen.
27 Feb 10 UTC Autumn, 1906: as long as we all just keep support holding each other in the meds nothing will ever happen.
27 Feb 10 UTC Autumn, 1906: we just need to prevent england from taking 3 more centers, should he take st petersburg, sweden, and berlin this year the game will be his.
27 Feb 10 UTC Autumn, 1906: Russia. I will support you from Liv to St. Pete. If England takes it, we all lose.
27 Feb 10 UTC Autumn, 1906: we still get what we're worth in points right?
27 Feb 10 UTC Autumn, 1906: Yeah, but we get more with a draw, with the exception of England, of course.
27 Feb 10 UTC Autumn, 1906: Russia I am sure will retreat to STP. He will be disbanding though thanks to you guys.
27 Feb 10 UTC Autumn, 1906: Thanks to us? That coming from the guy who is lining up to wipe him off the map and win the game? Nice.
27 Feb 10 UTC Autumn, 1906: I can do nothing but laugh at the moment.
27 Feb 10 UTC Autumn, 1906: A/T... I wasn't about to let you guys completely overrun Russia. I could have easily taken Berlin this past year or Sweden if that was my intent.

Russia...I do want to move further into continent but I do have concerns about the fleet in Berlin. I think we need an army there.
28 Feb 10 UTC Spring, 1907: Russia...so what do we do with the fleet since you didn't want to disband it? Just some general idea that I can work with would be appreciated.
28 Feb 10 UTC Spring, 1907: Turkey, I have naples set to convoy greece to rome, I'll be taking venice this turn.
28 Feb 10 UTC Spring, 1907: Ooops, looks like convoy isn't an option. In that case I'll move to rome and you can take naples.
28 Feb 10 UTC Spring, 1907: Ok.
28 Feb 10 UTC Spring, 1907: England, move Baltic-Liv and North Sea to Baltic. I did not want to leave Prussia empty right now.
28 Feb 10 UTC Autumn, 1907: oh man, what a surprise, england coup-de-grace'd.
What a hurp-de-durp moment for us all.
28 Feb 10 UTC Autumn, 1907: Hey turkey, lets just do a clusterfuck of support holds down south.
28 Feb 10 UTC Autumn, 1907: Ok. I will support you in rome from Tus adn I will use Nap to support Ion. Support me in Tus with Rom and Ven. Bring Vie to Tyr with support.
28 Feb 10 UTC Autumn, 1907: Sorry Russia...I really was looking to try to leave you Sweden or STP and try for WAR but keeping the fleet killed that. I believe I can't be stopped for the win at this point. I don't think I am premature in wishing everyone a good game. It will be next year before I can complete the victory.
28 Feb 10 UTC Autumn, 1907: Dont put the blame on me. You went for the win, as is your want, as I was trying for the draw, so dont try to justify yourself...there is no need.
28 Feb 10 UTC Autumn, 1907: Well I was always playing for the win. But I had hoped for your survival.
28 Feb 10 UTC Autumn, 1907: Aus - hit Mun with Boh. Then, hit Ber with Pru and support from Sil. Move War to Liv and I will support you in there. Bring Gal in behind to War.
28 Feb 10 UTC Autumn, 1907: Prussia is under Russian control, and I can't hit berlin at any point except from just Silesia.
28 Feb 10 UTC Autumn, 1907: You hearing this, Russia? Hit Ber with Pru. It may be our only chance.
28 Feb 10 UTC Autumn, 1907: Don't throw the game russia, we need your help.
28 Feb 10 UTC Autumn, 1907: Throw the game? It is everyone's only chance of keeping England from a solo. Trust me, the last SC he needs is St. Pete and he is coming for it. He can't get any others.
28 Feb 10 UTC Autumn, 1907: I will move Pru-Ber, but I fear that England has Germany under total control. But we can only try =)
28 Feb 10 UTC Autumn, 1907: I know. This may only stave off the inevitable for another year, but we have to try. Thanks.
01 Mar 10 UTC Autumn, 1907: Prussia, keep hitting Berlin with support from Sil. Hoh has to hit Mun. Livonia and Mos have to support St. Pete. Ven needs to hit pie with support of Tyr. Rome can hit Tyr with support of Ion and Tus.
01 Mar 10 UTC Autumn, 1907: No more guys in prussia.
01 Mar 10 UTC Autumn, 1907: The army is prussia will explode this year, then a turn must be wasted to get into prussia.

Turkey, lets make a mad dash for marseilles. Turkey, I need you to hit GoL with Tuscany, and I'll move my armies to piedmont to force him into marseilles. Meanwhile I'll support the ionian sea into the tyrrhenian sea via Rome, and you do the same with Naples.

With the Tyrr Sea, we can then take the GoL and maybe Marseilles if we can just hold off st. petersburg long enough.
01 Mar 10 UTC Autumn, 1907: You don't want to support that move with Naples...not until you can support Ionian.
01 Mar 10 UTC Spring, 1908: It will take one turn before the Ion will be safe. I will have two fleets backing it up after the spring.
01 Mar 10 UTC Spring, 1908: War has to go to Prussia. Support it with Liv and Sil. Still hit Mun. Ven to Pie with Support. I will knock down Gulf Lyon. We have to hold the fleets until I move Con and Smy into position this turn, then we clear TYR in the fall.
01 Mar 10 UTC Spring, 1908: We have to hit tyrr now, if the MAO comes we're stuck.just move to the aeg and the eastern, and have an army cover smyrna. That way you can bounce greece.
01 Mar 10 UTC okay... we gotta steal a point now or its gg.
01 Mar 10 UTC okay gg england
01 Mar 10 UTC was good
01 Mar 10 UTC I enjoyed it as well. Special thanks to Turkey for picking up the game and keeping us going.
01 Mar 10 UTC It's not over yet, but good game England.
01 Mar 10 UTC Liv needs to support St. Pete. Pru can hit Ber with support from Sil. Have Boh attack Mun with support from Tyr.
01 Mar 10 UTC Ion to Tyr with everyone supporting.
01 Mar 10 UTC If we do this, the game does not end this turn.
01 Mar 10 UTC My bad. Sil to Ber with support of Prussia. Baltic can only knock down one support.
01 Mar 10 UTC On the contrary, bothnia moves to st petersburg with support from finland, norway, and the barents sea. Thats 4, we have livonia and moscow supporting st. petersburg. Thats 3.
01 Mar 10 UTC Oh. Crap. Missed the army in Nor.
02 Mar 10 UTC Good game Spell
