23 Jan 18 UTC Autumn, 1908: It's pretty trivial for me to back enough for you to do it, which got generally positive feedback as an idea when I proposed it in private.
24 Jan 18 UTC Autumn, 1908: The problem I see is that while backing off may be a great idea in practice, it is the opposite of what you are doing right now. Besides, I am currently inviting England to help join the defense which would make them near impossible to cut out without ramifications.
24 Jan 18 UTC Autumn, 1908: Yes, abandoning his home centers will make him much more difficult to eliminate.
24 Jan 18 UTC Autumn, 1908: Can I just say how refreshing it is for the global page to be used to discuss the game instead of someone repeatedly posting the full script for X-men as vengeance?
24 Jan 18 UTC Autumn, 1908: This isn't the X-Men fan forum?
24 Jan 18 UTC Autumn, 1908: No, I'm talking about just during a game. Some guy just started posting the script over and over. Made it pretty much impossible to do anything in global chat
24 Jan 18 UTC Autumn, 1908: Sounds like a party.
24 Jan 18 UTC Autumn, 1908: England -- join the defense, please. Neither France nor I see a path to an endgame without you.
24 Jan 18 UTC Autumn, 1908: Without your centers*
24 Jan 18 UTC Autumn, 1908: Yes, you see all the units that I can currently move towards your centers.
24 Jan 18 UTC Autumn, 1908: Good game, Austria.
29 Jan 18 UTC Just a casual heads up. Turkey can take Tunis, Naples, Rome, Trieste, and Munich this turn if people do not work together and recognize the threat. While most of you have turned a blind eye to the problem, it will not go away. We must stand and fight.
29 Jan 18 UTC Italy, turn and fight. I understand your motivation to this point. Continuing further is simply throwing.
29 Jan 18 UTC It's all well and good to support an ally in this game, Italy. But also, try and see it from your citizens perspective.

Rome will fall, and it's museums, and archaeological treasures will be under the control of some Turkish dignitary. Naples, Tunis... Venice, with the David, the holy relics...

The Holy See will fall to Muslim hands.

You are the leader of the Italian people. But you don't care. You told me in press that your loyalty to the Sultan is supreme. You're fine with being a vassal state. And your play has been true to your word.

You are no Italian.Even if the Sultan lives up to his word, your nation will survive by his grace.

You have yielded your country's autonomy, sir. It is despicable.
29 Jan 18 UTC Join the free nations of the world to reach a stable peace, if it's not too late already. That's what the game is about.
29 Jan 18 UTC Y'all are fun.
30 Jan 18 UTC Good game, all.
30 Jan 18 UTC Good game.
30 Jan 18 UTC @Turkey, you did a great job working the global propaganda and I am glad to see you chose to end my suffering quickly.
@Russia, valiant fight in the east. I am sorry that I did not get to work with you more.
@Italy, I have to say that you approach, while new and interesting, was quite annoying to play against. Can't say I did not warn you.
@England, sorry that I had to end our relationship so early on. It left you in an awkward position for the rest of the game.
@Germany, it was a pleasure to work with you while I could, but after your perplexing stab attempt, I felt that you were strategically unsound.
@Austria, sorry that your time drew to a close prematurely.
30 Jan 18 UTC Honestly, I'm fine with how it worked out, and after yesterday, well let's say I've got a better lease on life in general. Sorry for the rest of y'all though, I must've been infuriating to deal with
