07 Feb 19 UTC Spring, 1994: more seriously, in the description page the creator says supply count is based of population, so I guess Poland just got screwed by being smaller than the other major powers int he real world.
07 Feb 19 UTC Spring, 1994: I mean, I can't recall any of the major partitions of Poland occurring since 1994, but if you're offering...
07 Feb 19 UTC Spring, 1994: I have a sneaking suspicion Italy will be AFK this game
08 Feb 19 UTC Spring, 1994: Nah nah I am back
08 Feb 19 UTC Spring, 1994: I hadn't logged in on my phone and hadn't gotten to my laptop since I found game began. Sorry for the rush job with initial strategising, everyone.
10 Feb 19 UTC Spring, 1995: RIP Turkey.
11 Feb 19 UTC Spring, 1995: Something I just learnt that some here might not know, you can build on any center you own, that isn't occupied, in autumn. You aren't restricted to building in just home centers.
11 Feb 19 UTC Autumn, 1995: What even is the territorial integrity of Russia?
11 Feb 19 UTC Autumn, 1995: That is interesting.
12 Feb 19 UTC Autumn, 1995: To be fair to Russia, if this was real life that army would have frozen to death by now :P
17 Feb 19 UTC Autumn, 1996: Cmon Germany, you really going to obviously fumble helping your ally just to fail at stabbing me? At least try to make it subtle you were taking Switzerland off of Italy for zero returns.
17 Feb 19 UTC Autumn, 1996: I congratulate you for your commitment to maintaining Britain’s historic anti-german propaganda albeit the accusation is false. The German troops who on long service leave decided to tour the North Sea remain steadfast fans of ravioli and other fine Italian cuisine.
18 Feb 19 UTC Autumn, 1996: I was more referring to Alsace not cutting the Lyon support.
18 Feb 19 UTC Autumn, 1996: I'm perfectly aware what the accusation was but seems a bit much to construe it as an attempt to screw Italy as opposed to anticipating an eventual attack from Britain.
18 Feb 19 UTC Autumn, 1996: Guys this is global chat. I'm right here. So is France.
18 Feb 19 UTC Autumn, 1996: I mean, it's obviously both, isn't it?
18 Feb 19 UTC Autumn, 1996: If anything I believe it shows your priorities in commanding your armies.
18 Feb 19 UTC Autumn, 1996: Global chat is the place for shit-talking; not much point to it without an audience!
18 Feb 19 UTC Autumn, 1996: LOUD NOISESSS!!!!
19 Feb 19 UTC Autumn, 1996: Shit talking in global chat is best use of chat functionality, to be entirely honest.

Public press only games are hilarious.
19 Feb 19 UTC Autumn, 1996: Haven't really played public press before, is it just a gunboat with shitposting?
19 Feb 19 UTC Autumn, 1996: For real max shitposting you want the games where you can post to global chat anonymously
21 Feb 19 UTC Autumn, 1997: oh wow that sounds ridiculous
21 Feb 19 UTC Autumn, 1997: oh wow that sounds ridiculous
22 Feb 19 UTC Autumn, 1997: Mad respect for the fleet of Andalucia. The fleet that managed to troll the entire Spanish Armada
22 Feb 19 UTC Autumn, 1997: Yeah, that fleet held out impressively. RIP
28 Feb 19 UTC Spring, 1999: crap
02 Mar 19 UTC Autumn, 1999: RIP France and Turkey
03 Mar 19 UTC Autumn, 1999: Why not retreat to Izmir to troll Egypt a little?
06 Mar 19 UTC Autumn, 2000: Poland, do you really have to hold us up like that?
06 Mar 19 UTC Autumn, 2000: It's important to me that turns flip while I'm awake, and I'm not good with mornings. Sorry if I missed on hitting ready yesterday evening, though
08 Mar 19 UTC Spring, 2001: Bloody Y2K bug sent my troops into Spain ヽ(ಠ_ಠ)ノ
10 Mar 19 UTC Autumn, 2001: Two years later, another two fall at the same time.

Not really liking the look of 2003 at this rate :/
10 Mar 19 UTC Autumn, 2001: yeah, it's definitely getting to the point in the game where I wonder what the threshold number for the two big guys to agree to a draw is
10 Mar 19 UTC Autumn, 2001: As with any reasonable draw, presumably it'll be determined by stalemate lines rather than reaching an arbitrary number of remaining players..
10 Mar 19 UTC Autumn, 2001: Keeping my fingers crossed with the two of you, Russia and Poland
17 Mar 19 UTC Spring, 2003: Hey guys, I'm having a weird issue where I can't access my orders to put them in. That section just reads "loading orders", on both my phone and my desktop
17 Mar 19 UTC Spring, 2003: I'll try and fix things tomorrow morning but I might need a brief pause to fix this
17 Mar 19 UTC Spring, 2003: Go onto google settings, click on advanced settings, find the privacy and security panel, click on the 'clear browsing data' option, then clear the data on your cache
17 Mar 19 UTC Spring, 2003: Peace *fades into background*
17 Mar 19 UTC Spring, 2003: Yeah I had the same issue after a while on my mobile browser. Seems to work fine with my laptop so probably the cache
30 Mar 19 UTC Autumn, 2005: Hey everyone, I have exams coming up over the next few weeks. Pause for a while?
30 Mar 19 UTC Autumn, 2005: Or we could draw
30 Mar 19 UTC Autumn, 2005: I mean the game is pretty much done. If we fast forward several turns all that I could see changing is Russia's last base disappearing so happy to call it if we've got other stuff to do. We've got a stalemate everywhere bar the Eastern front but it'd be pretty hard to push down through anything connected to the Black/Caspian Sea
30 Mar 19 UTC Autumn, 2005: The main shame though would be removing the chance to fulfil the Brittany->Urals expedition I've been setting up
30 Mar 19 UTC I've got no problems taking a 5-way draw. The only thing likely to change in the near future is Russia losing his last centre, and even that only happens if Egypt does the killing blow.
30 Mar 19 UTC Brittany to Urals is a hilarious convoy though :)
30 Mar 19 UTC Alright buds. Good game. Thought I had it in the bag for a minute there.
30 Mar 19 UTC Great game all
30 Mar 19 UTC Thanks for the game, everyone
