05 Jan 19 UTC Spring, 1905: agh i have to keep playing?
05 Jan 19 UTC Spring, 1905: We can always draw
05 Jan 19 UTC Spring, 1905: #drawforvictory
05 Jan 19 UTC Spring, 1905: No, I'm just kidding, it doesn't really matter. Whatever everyone else wants to do.
05 Jan 19 UTC Spring, 1905: I would be so sad to be the only one out of this draw lol
05 Jan 19 UTC Spring, 1905: Kinda makes me want to draw more now
05 Jan 19 UTC Spring, 1905: I mean... I would be extremely happy? Clearly I was the biggest threat after all...
05 Jan 19 UTC Spring, 1905: Moderator: (Claesar): At least I didn't unpause the other one.
05 Jan 19 UTC Spring, 1905: Moderator: (Claesar): I just checked all 6 pages of Public Press for this game and there was no clear indication it had to stay paused, so deal with it.
Or ask for a pause.
05 Jan 19 UTC Spring, 1905: Hahah you're good Claesar it's fine
05 Jan 19 UTC Spring, 1905: WFO is on now.
06 Jan 19 UTC Spring, 1905: Hello all, so some responsibilities I have all converged at around the same time today and yesterday, that's why I haven't responded, I will respond more tomorrow morning and will have my orders in before the cutoff, but if not I can just rely on WFO, thank you WFO
06 Jan 19 UTC Spring, 1905: But I've never been in a WFO game before, as I've been on this site for only 9 months, does the phase just stop right before the cutoff?
06 Jan 19 UTC Spring, 1905: It effectively pauses the game until you enter orders, but please do not abuse it, and please do not send press after a phase is supposed to be processed.
06 Jan 19 UTC Autumn, 1905: christ i havent misordered in years. i'm too busy
24 Jan 19 UTC Autumn, 1906: Sad world out there for the outside powers.
24 Jan 19 UTC Autumn, 1906: It was all peaceful and great until Russia took Norway

What a different game it would've been.
24 Jan 19 UTC Autumn, 1906: It was all peaceful and great until England decided to stab me.

What a different game it would've been.
24 Jan 19 UTC Autumn, 1906: You don't get to talk. You're living and doing well.
24 Jan 19 UTC Autumn, 1906: Hey I'm with you England. If Russia decided to be my friend I feel like none of us would be in this situation right now!
24 Jan 19 UTC Autumn, 1906: Everything is Putin's fault. Everything is always Putin's fault.:-)
24 Jan 19 UTC Autumn, 1906: It was all fun and games until Spring 1901.
24 Jan 19 UTC Spring, 1907: @Russia hope you enjoy the KGB coming after you..
01 Feb 19 UTC Autumn, 1907: Hi all,

Apologies, but I'm going to have to use WFO for a short time, maybe an hour. Sorry about that!
02 Feb 19 UTC Autumn, 1907: Thanks for your patience, good to go, and sorry for abusing WFO.
02 Feb 19 UTC Autumn, 1907: Germany hasn't entered either
02 Feb 19 UTC Autumn, 1907: sometimes 3 days is not enough :/
02 Feb 19 UTC Autumn, 1907: I imagine we won't stay paused long, but I'm okay with being paused for as long as it needs to be.

Question about WFO: just to be clear, the next phase hasn't technically 'already started', right? As in, the phase was technically supposed to go 3 hours ago, so we're not 3 hours into the next phase while being still in our current phase? We don't miss any time from the retreats phase?

Sorry, that was a bit of a mess, but I think it gets my point across.
02 Feb 19 UTC Autumn, 1907: The next phase does not start until this one ends
02 Feb 19 UTC Autumn, 1907: Got it, thanks.
02 Feb 19 UTC Autumn, 1907: Sorry guys... Been insanely busy
02 Feb 19 UTC Autumn, 1907: Looks like turning on me wasn't the wisest of decisions, eh France?
02 Feb 19 UTC Autumn, 1907: I am just /shocked/ that Italy turned on Austria. Truly.
02 Feb 19 UTC Autumn, 1907: If that's what happened. And if not then I will be shocked if it happens in the future :p
02 Feb 19 UTC Autumn, 1907: It didn't happen
02 Feb 19 UTC Autumn, 1907: It didn't happen
02 Feb 19 UTC Autumn, 1907: hence my clarification
09 Feb 19 UTC My draw is up, since boring games are boring games.
09 Feb 19 UTC Same
09 Feb 19 UTC The reason the game is boring is because of your unbreakable alliance btw
09 Feb 19 UTC Thanks for playing everyone. I've had my draw vote up since I joined, so it's rewarding to be a part of it.

This was my first high-level game, so thank you for letting me be a part of it. The alliance I had with bo is probably the strongest alliance I've ever had, so I really appreciate the dedication we both had, even if it made the game boring.
09 Feb 19 UTC It wasn’t unbreakable. You prevented me from having a solo shot (not criticizing you for that), so I had no reason to attack a good ally.
09 Feb 19 UTC Okay, well, at least, I wasn't going to ever stab you. I felt like you weren't for a while, at least, but there was a little fear at times.
09 Feb 19 UTC No one is stab-proof, but you were wonderful to work with and I wouldn’t have done so lightly.
10 Feb 19 UTC I mean, realistically there was no way they would stab each other, Durga. The only way to break them up would've been to allow Bo to go on a solo run
10 Feb 19 UTC And why would I risk that? Better to just draw while I'm relatively close in standings
10 Feb 19 UTC It's much more realistic for one of them to stab the other to shift the game dynamics than for me to let one of them become a solo threat to shift game dynamics. Like, are you listening to yourself
10 Feb 19 UTC He didn't tell you to do it, just thats probably the only way it could be done.
10 Feb 19 UTC I disagree, but have no desire to continue this discussion
10 Feb 19 UTC Until the last couple of years, I expected you to be the solo threat, not me. I’m still not really sure why that never transpired.
