18 May 18 UTC Spring, 1901: Same, prefer 36 to 25!
18 May 18 UTC Spring, 1901: Perhaps we can even extend this phase already?

Always think it's too short for the amount of talking that needs to be done.
18 May 18 UTC Spring, 1901: Could someone message damian. I am currently at work so i do not have the time.
18 May 18 UTC Spring, 1901: France and Germany did not agree yet and I think the decision has to be unanimous.
18 May 18 UTC Spring, 1901: Damn.
18 May 18 UTC Autumn, 1901: That's my bad, guys. Wasn't looking at the global chat. I would have been fine with it, but oh well.
18 May 18 UTC Autumn, 1901: We can still ask him. I think france ia the only one who has not given his go ahead
19 May 18 UTC Autumn, 1901: King cyrus do you think we should have 36 hour phases
19 May 18 UTC Autumn, 1901: Would you please state your view on this. I do not mind 25 hours but i would like a definate answer
19 May 18 UTC Autumn, 1901: Someone make sure to contact a mod if russia does not have moves locked in 30m before the turn phase.
19 May 18 UTC Autumn, 1901: I think we are playing in wait for orders mode so NMR won't happen.
19 May 18 UTC Autumn, 1901: Sorry, haven’t been checking global! I’m fine with 36 hours
19 May 18 UTC Autumn, 1901: Moderator: (damian): Phase length changed.
19 May 18 UTC Autumn, 1901: Sorry about the delay/reset guys, we had to send a family member over the rainbow bridge today :(
21 May 18 UTC Autumn, 1901: Sorry to hear that Demon.
21 May 18 UTC Autumn, 1901: Indeed, my sincere condolences.

Further, if you want a pause please don't hesitate to request it!
23 May 18 UTC Spring, 1902: I would quickly like to request a pause. I will also be contacting a mod to help me solve this problem. I will most likely have to be replace. I am sorry for the inconvenience by the device i was using to message and play Web Dip has just broken and i can no longer reliably message or move.
24 May 18 UTC Spring, 1902: I am messaged Damian and i hope to fix this problem Asap or get a replacement so that you can continue the game. I am sorry for the inconveniences that this has caused all of you. Currently i am using a computer that is not mine to send this message and i will not have regular access to it. I just thought i would give you all a heads up as to why i have not submitted my orders or talked for the last 12ish hours.
24 May 18 UTC Spring, 1902: I will not be submitting my moves this phase to allow Damian to pause and get a replacement without me forcing a position on the replacement.
24 May 18 UTC Spring, 1902: I thank you all for your patience.
24 May 18 UTC Spring, 1902: I have fixed praise the world.
24 May 18 UTC Spring, 1902: I have fixed it. Took most of the day but i should be good.
24 May 18 UTC Spring, 1902: Well that was exciting.
10 Jun 18 UTC Autumn, 1904: I’m really appreciating the fact that it is this far in the game and still no one has taken Sweden. Can we just leave it alone? Have it be a preserve or something?
10 Jun 18 UTC Autumn, 1904: I agree
12 Jun 18 UTC Autumn, 1905: Guys, sorry I was off and late this turn. I appreciate your patience.

Oh, and France, I impolitely faaaahrt in your general direction.
17 Jun 18 UTC Spring, 1906: Is the game currently running or not?
21 Jun 18 UTC Autumn, 1906: I am going to not lock in for this phase so feel free to take a break
23 Jun 18 UTC Autumn, 1906: Everybody,

I will be spending the next three weeks backpacking in the mountains and will be unable to check on the internet. I have gotten a sub who will be filling in. Thank you for understanding.
23 Jun 18 UTC Autumn, 1906: Good luck and have fun with that. It is what life is all about.
23 Jun 18 UTC Autumn, 1906: Have a good time man!
03 Jul 18 UTC Spring, 1908: Everyone is so quite this phase. Perhaps everything is about to go bad for me.
05 Jul 18 UTC Autumn, 1908: Hello everyone. I have an apology to make. Throughout this game I have only expanded by backstabbing my allies. I understand that this is not good for me. My moves for quite a few of these phases have been sub-par at best when in concern of my alliances.

I would like to apologise to every player that I have done this to. This is not my normal playstyle. I do not like that I have broken promises with people over paranoia during this game.

Whilst it is no excuse, my life have been very hectic throughout the entirety of this game I have made rushed judgements on the board last minute. I have tried to devote at much time as I could to this match but I feel as if I rushed through this game.

I believe that I have made the game less enjoyable for the rest of everyone here because of my rushed board press and moveset. So I would like to openly apologise for doing that to everyone.

Anyway good luck in the game.
05 Jul 18 UTC Autumn, 1908: Thank you, very thoughtful. And we appreciate it.

And in the spirit of this backstabbing Diplomacy game full of lies, deceit and subterfuge, good try!

Crush him guys!
08 Jul 18 UTC Spring, 1909: Is this the turn that ends it all?
09 Jul 18 UTC Autumn, 1909: Moderator: (damian): Nope you have one year left after this turn. Game ends at the end of 1910
09 Jul 18 UTC Autumn, 1909: Was talking figuratively but yeah. I knew 1910 already.
11 Jul 18 UTC Autumn, 1909: I think that damian's message has refreshed the memory of a few players (including me) and that changed the final results of the game.
11 Jul 18 UTC Autumn, 1909: I already knew. And I was going to use it to end the game in my favourable outcome. But i don't think that's an option now :)
11 Jul 18 UTC Autumn, 1909: If you'd stop fighting Turkey, we can definitely parlay this into a draw haha.
11 Jul 18 UTC Autumn, 1909: That's true.
12 Jul 18 UTC Autumn, 1909: I'll take everyone up in that offer. I would like to draw this turn who is with me?
12 Jul 18 UTC Autumn, 1909: In
14 Jul 18 UTC Spring, 1910: Sorry guys, really busy. Okay if I fill orders in a few hours?
14 Jul 18 UTC Spring, 1910: Sure
14 Jul 18 UTC Spring, 1910: Wow that was quite a time ago. Is everything alright Tim?
16 Jul 18 UTC Thanks guys. Gg, and congrats mcbride on your 1st place!
16 Jul 18 UTC Well played everyone. I still apologise for being an was this whole game.

Are we going to do EOG statements or just let the game end.
16 Jul 18 UTC An ass* for my message before the last one.
17 Jul 18 UTC Moderator: (damian): Thats the game. Official post and awards to follow later tonight.
