24 Nov 17 UTC Spring, 1901: Hello England,

We may be far away, but I think we can still be useful to each other. Any chance you want to be information sharing partners until we can physically work together?
24 Nov 17 UTC Spring, 1901: Hahahahahaha, rookie mistake...whoops. just so all you know too, I would love to be information partners with everyone :P lol
25 Nov 17 UTC Spring, 1901: LOL
27 Nov 17 UTC Spring, 1902: Apologies to all for the NMR :-(
I hope that it doesn't ruin the game too much.
04 Dec 17 UTC Autumn, 1905: Seems like we are facing a Juggernaut.
Maybe we should all recalculate our strategy...
04 Dec 17 UTC Autumn, 1905: France thinks you and he can handle it alone. He actually told me that.
07 Dec 17 UTC Spring, 1908: Spite = Strategy apparently
07 Dec 17 UTC Spring, 1908: Spite? I tried to work with you as well and you betrayed me on 3 consecutive turns, and Italy tried to make up an imaginary alliance they had with you. I went with the person I could trust, and unfortunately the only person I could trust was Germany. When Austria and Italy just hand them everything with basically no opposition it gives them the upper hand very quickly.
07 Dec 17 UTC Spring, 1908: Totally I meant Germany destroying a unit in Kiel to keep the north sea because I made fun of him.
07 Dec 17 UTC Spring, 1908: I'm not saying you should trust me at this point. That would be ridiculous.
07 Dec 17 UTC Spring, 1908: Yeah, the game was over when Austria decided they would rather screw me out of my half of Italy and leave their backend totally undefended. He took 3 of italy's centers in 1 year, then lost all of his home centers that same year, essentially eliminating both themselves and Italy from the game all at once and clearing a path for Russia and Turkey. Had he been willing to split it we could have slowly eliminated Italy together and not allowed Russia and Turkey to grow too large, but that one decision turned the game clearly into their favor. Otherwise I think it would have still been interesting.
07 Dec 17 UTC Spring, 1908: Now its just a waiting game for when they decide to either turn on eachother, turn on you, or call it a draw. Because even if we all team up, its 14 against 20. They determine the outcome of this game at this point.
07 Dec 17 UTC Spring, 1908: Well that's kind of the thing that always gets me, whenever there's even the vaguest hint that Russia and Turkey might co-operate even the tiniest bit, everyone panics and just "We all need to team up NOW!" and then it's just a draw of however many players were left in the game at that point. I'm just trying to see another way forward other than just the usual Juggernaut Panic. It hasn't come out quite like I'd hoped, but like, oh well, that's life I guess?
09 Dec 17 UTC Spring, 1909: Wow.
09 Dec 17 UTC Autumn, 1909: It's not Panic. it's (actually, very simple) logic. Seriously, what did YOU think would happen?
10 Dec 17 UTC Spring, 1910: I didn't think it was panic. I think it's spite.
10 Dec 17 UTC Spring, 1910: You were talking about "The usual Juggernaut panic".
10 Dec 17 UTC Spring, 1910: Oh yes I see. In any event it doesn't really matter. It's still frustrating to play a game where about 30 -40 percent of the time basically the same thing happens and the only thing you can do is basically set in stone.
10 Dec 17 UTC Spring, 1910: Yes, that's true.
11 Dec 17 UTC Damn it. Should have hit Munich instead. Thought you’d support from Bohemia.

Can’t believe I believed Russia for so long. Not my best game for sure.
11 Dec 17 UTC Good game Russia.
11 Dec 17 UTC But, good game to Russia. You really strung me along and made all the right decisions in the end game.
11 Dec 17 UTC Thanks - good game - I really wasn't thinking about a solo until the last 2 years, when everyone's retreats and disbands really fell my way.
And yes, I got very lucky that last move because both MUN or Bud were vulnerable to a supported attack.
11 Dec 17 UTC And that's why Turkey should never go for a Juggernaut...
11 Dec 17 UTC GG all
