1 excused missed turn
Game drawn
20 Jul 19 UTC Spring, 1903: GameMaster: Game was extended due to at least 1 member failing to enter orders and having an excused missed turn available. This has un-readied all orders.
20 Jul 19 UTC Spring, 1903: I think you and I France should go for a friendly drink at the bar. We sit at the table. I call over the bar hop.
"Get my FRIEND a drink on me."
"Really?"
"Yes." I reply with a laugh and wink, "I'm good for it."
"Thanks man you are so nice giving me a free drink."
"Who said it was just one?"
20 Jul 19 UTC Spring, 1903: 5 hours later...
"You gave me 30 drinks... I cannot stand!"
"That was my intention." I scoff as I get up out of my bar stool. I walk to the door.
"Wait where are you going? You have to pay for those free drinks you gave me!"
I look at my French friend. "You can afford to pay for drinks if you live in Wales." I take a step outside to go to the harbour. The French in my once beautiful United Kingdom. An army of cheese loving Frenchman (they didnt even bring their pretty women those fiends) in wales. The French fleets sitting in the Irish Sea and English Channel.
"One Frenchman down one to go."

The End
20 Jul 19 UTC Spring, 1903: *Frenchmen.
20 Jul 19 UTC Spring, 1903: It is a nice posting ... would have been better to order moves instead which would have defended your isle ...
21 Jul 19 UTC Spring, 1903: "One Frenchman down one to go." Army Wales has two soldiers according to the Prime Minister.

21 Jul 19 UTC Spring, 1903: Seriously?
21 Jul 19 UTC Spring, 1903: Welcome new Italy!
21 Jul 19 UTC Spring, 1903: hey, i'm new italy. it's good to be here. i'm still reading old messages to figure out what's goin on. i'm open to talking to everyone
21 Jul 19 UTC Spring, 1903: Welcome new Italy!
21 Jul 19 UTC Spring, 1903: I feel a bit sorry for you Austria. First Germany as middle nation drops out. Then Italy stabs you and decides to quit with 5 supply centers. Just having one good news for you: hopefully after next fall you can look for a new game.
22 Jul 19 UTC Spring, 1903: I woke up slowly from the hangover and found myself sprawled on a table in the war room with a gigantic map of Europe before me. My English friend had sent me another bottle, which I took a sip from. "Hair of the dog," I muttered as I stared at the map. The units had been moved around, and I realized another turn had passed by while I was unconscious. Then I saw the little brown piece sitting in Burgundy. The Germans had broken into our borders. "No...this can't be." I staggered towards the desk and found a piece of paper with orders on it, in my own drunk handwriting. And at least England gave me drinks, I thought to myself, I don't see any frankfurter deliveries coming into Paris. I looked out the window. Paris had become the new front line with Burgundy lost. "Prime minister, I'm not paying for those drinks in money. I'm going to treat you with a bit of French wine, Germany as well, with wine straight out of Burgundy."
24 Jul 19 UTC Autumn, 1903: Haha that's fantastic. I love it!
24 Jul 19 UTC Autumn, 1903: GameMaster: Game was extended due to at least 1 member failing to enter orders and having an excused missed turn available. This has un-readied all orders.
24 Jul 19 UTC Autumn, 1903: New Italy here.
24 Jul 19 UTC Autumn, 1903: Seems there’s been some rollover in this game. I’m hoping to be more of a pillar. I look forward to conversing with everyone
24 Jul 19 UTC Autumn, 1903: Thanks for taking the replacement position Italy.
24 Jul 19 UTC Autumn, 1903: I guess if people are willing to converse with me
24 Jul 19 UTC Autumn, 1903: Welcome 2nd new Italy!
25 Jul 19 UTC Autumn, 1903: ...And the German communications are dysfunctional again.
25 Jul 19 UTC Autumn, 1903: While no one can make someone talk to you. This game is about communication. Talk to your allies , and talk to your foes. One never knows when the wings of change should happen. Never say never
25 Jul 19 UTC Autumn, 1903: I dont understand what you want to say!?
25 Jul 19 UTC Autumn, 1903: Well, Germany, I was pointing out the fact that I sent a long message to you three days ago, but you never replied when you were able to get online to enter orders. England also didn't receive anything from you ever since you betrayed him, I continue to talk with England even though I too have turned on him. As Italy points out, you shouldn't stop talking to someone, how do you expect to play this game when you are completely silent to the people you stab?
25 Jul 19 UTC Autumn, 1903: I see that you have replied, thank you.
25 Jul 19 UTC Autumn, 1903: Looks like you are twisting a lot of things.
25 Jul 19 UTC Autumn, 1903: The things in that message are the things I know of, which is only my point of view of the game, of course my message won't quite match up with what you know.
26 Jul 19 UTC Autumn, 1903: Broadcast: Give no trust to Germany for he doesn't deserve it. He violated our border agreements when I did not do a thing to him. But we all do this don't we? (Ahem sorry England) Germany lied repeatedly even after breaking the agreements, we can't let someone like this continue on to the endgame where he'll certainly stab for the solo.
26 Jul 19 UTC Autumn, 1903: Realy? xD
26 Jul 19 UTC Autumn, 1903: Yes.
AND WHY AM I SO ADDICTED TO USING GLOBAL
27 Jul 19 UTC Autumn, 1903: Two players give me meat shield offers and one tells me to play gunboat LOL
27 Jul 19 UTC Autumn, 1903: GameMaster: Game was extended due to at least 1 member failing to enter orders and having an excused missed turn available. This has un-readied all orders.
27 Jul 19 UTC Autumn, 1903: who missed?
29 Jul 19 UTC Spring, 1904: Now i understand why 2 Italy’s left before me.
29 Jul 19 UTC Spring, 1904: Dear players, my internet provider will change, and i will be without internet access a couple of days (around 9 days). I kindly request to Pause the game. Thank you. Since 9 days are quite some time with daily deadlines, i offer to draw if the remaining players without England prefer that alternative. Please inform me with private message if you wish for a draw instead to pause the game. Thanks!
29 Jul 19 UTC Spring, 1904: Planned downtime: 01.08.2019 to 09.08.2019, so we can do 2 more turns most likely.
29 Jul 19 UTC Spring, 1904: I will require a pause for a week as well, right after you.
29 Jul 19 UTC Spring, 1904: It’s my anniversary and i will be traveling
29 Jul 19 UTC Spring, 1904: In that case, I'm actually for an end of this round. To let the game rest for 2.5 weeks ruin the pleasure.
In my opinion, there will certainly be further interruptions after such a long break, cause of NMRs who don't get the restart.

What does the rest of you think about our Situation?
29 Jul 19 UTC Spring, 1904: Basically i agree with Germany, so i put up Draw as well. 2 days left until i loose my connection. If there is no majority for Draw or Pause i will most likely ask a Moderator to Pause the Game or to Replace me (is that possible at all?).
29 Jul 19 UTC Spring, 1904: That is quite honorable by Russia. Kudos to you
30 Jul 19 UTC If we go to pause. I will require till August 24. Not going to restart game for 3 days then pause again
30 Jul 19 UTC If we are pausing for a month I'd rather draw and end the game. Putting up my draw vote.
30 Jul 19 UTC Then it's just Turkey who already didn't vote for draw.
The last question is, do we draw with or without England?
30 Jul 19 UTC I love you too Germany. 0_0
30 Jul 19 UTC I am sorry.
30 Jul 19 UTC GG
