08 Mar 10 UTC Autumn, 5: I guess we have to wait for Greece's answer as to what he's doing in Ausonian Sea, then.
08 Mar 10 UTC Autumn, 5: I was just driving Rome away. You get a build thanks to Neapoli to protect your homeland. No threat for you.
I retreat if we declare it DMZ. Okay with that?
08 Mar 10 UTC Autumn, 5: I meant Ausonian Sea to be DMZ just to clarify.
08 Mar 10 UTC Autumn, 5: That's fine with me.
08 Mar 10 UTC Spring, 6: So what the hell was up with Rome? I've never seen anyone just NOT TALK for a whole game.
08 Mar 10 UTC Spring, 6: I have no idea. I was wondering about that too. Very strange.
08 Mar 10 UTC Spring, 6: I mean, he must have known we were allowed to talk. Weird. I'm not overly sad about it, but it's just strange, you know? Was he trying to be awesome and win on his own?
08 Mar 10 UTC Spring, 6: Can't win on your own. Never works. And he saw that we were talking...
08 Mar 10 UTC Spring, 6: I actually managed a gunboat victory on my own once on the classic map. But when other people can talk? That's just shooting yourself in the foot. I mean, both his neighbors had peace treaties with their neighbors. There was only one place we were gonna go.
08 Mar 10 UTC Autumn, 6: You know, I think it's detrimental to invade neutral territories you don't have to. You look so much bigger on the World Map than you really are. Look how intimidating all that Blue is. : (
08 Mar 10 UTC Autumn, 6: You are right with comment that all that blue is quite intimidating. I believe specifically in the world map games that works to your disadvantage.
08 Mar 10 UTC Autumn, 6: I would like it if the army in Tarraco stays there, do not move it to Gaul please.
08 Mar 10 UTC Autumn, 6: Sorry, got your request while sleeping. It was 4:20am my time when it arrived.
08 Mar 10 UTC Spring, 7: I'll take Thebes from Egypt, Persia. You just need to kick him out of Cyprus and Damascus.
08 Mar 10 UTC Spring, 7: I'm gonna hold my move orders. Let me know what I can do to help against Egypt.
08 Mar 10 UTC Spring, 7: And Greece, I moved there to stop any moves around. If it really makes you that nervous, I can move it back to Tarraco.
08 Mar 10 UTC Spring, 7: I am fine.
09 Mar 10 UTC Spring, 7: You know, I think Egypt is the most competent player in this game.
09 Mar 10 UTC Spring, 7: I like his game
09 Mar 10 UTC Autumn, 7: In any case, Greece move you army to the border with Carthage. Seemly he plans to attack you and me
09 Mar 10 UTC Autumn, 7: Curses! Never in a million years did I suspect anyone would figure out my plan! Noooo! I have been bested by Persia's intelligence!
09 Mar 10 UTC Autumn, 7: Perisa. It is you and me together.
09 Mar 10 UTC Autumn, 7: Egypt, it's you and me together against them! I'll stop invading your SCs now. If I can help it. Let's win this together! Yaaaaa teamwork!
09 Mar 10 UTC Autumn, 7: This is going to be close but we might be able to fend Carthage off.
Ceterum censeo, Carthago delendum esse! (sowhat like this.)
09 Mar 10 UTC Autumn, 7: Roma delenda est! Magnissima urbs est Carthago, et Carthago duceo mundum! Videbo in infernis, Roma! Hahaha!
09 Mar 10 UTC Autumn, 7: Crap, maxima urbs* Damn irregular adjectives...
09 Mar 10 UTC Autumn, 7: Will see my friend. We will see.
09 Mar 10 UTC Autumn, 7: It'll be a close one... It's a shame for Persia he doesn't have more armies.
09 Mar 10 UTC Autumn, 7: Greece, aren't you worried about losing SCs? You should grab Sinope so you can stop me.
09 Mar 10 UTC Autumn, 7: If you draw, it doesn't hurt anyone, if you lose, you'll get more points. Why not do it?
09 Mar 10 UTC Autumn, 7: Persia, are you going to let me play for the draw with you and Greece?
09 Mar 10 UTC Autumn, 7: Hm. Do you have exact strategy?
09 Mar 10 UTC Autumn, 7: Where do you think they're going to get extra SCs, Egypt? Persia wants a draw, but if things go poorly, do you think he'll stand by?
09 Mar 10 UTC Autumn, 7: If you help me win, Egypt, I can guarantee you a survival. If we stalemate and the war draws on, Persia will probably take you out.
09 Mar 10 UTC Autumn, 7: Persia's being evasive and he hasn't unfinalized his move orders. He's just trying to get you to let down your guard so he can grab your SCs for himself. Side with me and I'll do my best to help you take as many SCs from Persia as I can, and I'll take my final SCs from Greece.
10 Mar 10 UTC Autumn, 7: Go for Miletus and Byzantium, Persia! I only need one more SC and then the game ends. Do you want to lose points or gain them?
10 Mar 10 UTC Autumn, 7: Hey Egypt, is there anything I can do to convince you to enter Armenia and go for Chersonesus.
10 Mar 10 UTC Spring, 8: Egypt I offer you a draw if you join us against Carthage. Carthage almost won it but we have a small chance if we stay united.
Oh, fyi, 1 Sc is worth 2+ points, so this is really not about winning points...
10 Mar 10 UTC Spring, 8: I'll stop attacking Persia so he can defend himself from Carthage. Got any moves you want to coordinate?
10 Mar 10 UTC Spring, 8: Boooo!
10 Mar 10 UTC Spring, 8: Aren't you guys worried that Greece just wants to solo? He still hasn't put in a draw order.
10 Mar 10 UTC Spring, 8: I will put in a draw order only for three: Persia, Egypt and myself.
(No offense. Good game with good fun!)
10 Mar 10 UTC Spring, 8: He's aiming for his own solo. He already has 9 SCs. He'll have won before I'm gone.
10 Mar 10 UTC Spring, 8: Nice try buddy.
10 Mar 10 UTC Spring, 8: As it comes to coordinating moves I will try to hold the line and counterattack from Messenian Sea north. The two of you need to get Egypt back.
10 Mar 10 UTC Spring, 8: Actually the most likely outcome seems to be a stalemate, we will see. I will travel over the next three days and will only be sporadically able to check-in and comment.
10 Mar 10 UTC Spring, 8: So, Egypt go to the border with Car. Let's try to make draw
12 Mar 10 UTC Oh come on, Miletus and Antioch are both wide open.
12 Mar 10 UTC Wouldn't it be great if Egypt won this game?
12 Mar 10 UTC Egypt is clever player. He knows price of your words!
