14 Mar 20 UTC Autumn, 1907: Also France is a lying dog faced pony soldier cuz there’s no way he intends to split with everyone except Russia, both of them are 7 SCs from a solo, the only way me Italy and Austria are getting a cut is if we team
14 Mar 20 UTC Autumn, 1907: Together we have the same number of SCs as either of them and we are clustered together so we can’t just get picked off, the best path for us is to unite and throw a Hail Mary
14 Mar 20 UTC Autumn, 1907: I think you’ll find I’ve stayed true to my word with both you and Italy - even Russia for a time. Except for one unfortunate incident, a necessary evil, I haven’t lied to anyone who considers themselves my ally.
14 Mar 20 UTC Autumn, 1907: It was very necessary
14 Mar 20 UTC Autumn, 1907: The move to Vienna was done with Austria's permission
14 Mar 20 UTC Autumn, 1907: The same Austria that called England my lapdog?
14 Mar 20 UTC Autumn, 1907: lol!!
14 Mar 20 UTC Autumn, 1907: Lol
14 Mar 20 UTC Autumn, 1907: Except that you ate England as I said you would.
14 Mar 20 UTC Autumn, 1907: Oof
14 Mar 20 UTC Autumn, 1907: I guess unless you want to go the way of England, you should heed the warning.
14 Mar 20 UTC Autumn, 1907: OOF
14 Mar 20 UTC Autumn, 1907: I was backstabbed by the Russians and at this point even I prefer them to the French
14 Mar 20 UTC Autumn, 1907: All anyone needs to do is look at the board - France has a path to a solo right now, Russia does not.
14 Mar 20 UTC Autumn, 1907: The breakout begins!
14 Mar 20 UTC Autumn, 1907: I’d like to see how you figure Russia doesn’t have a path to a solo. They’re already across the stalemate line.
14 Mar 20 UTC Spring, 1908: Both clearly have a path
14 Mar 20 UTC Spring, 1908: Yeah - it's basically France and Italy vs Russia and Austria
14 Mar 20 UTC Spring, 1908: Russia cannot hold the north with just one fleet. It is a matter of inevitability that Den, Swe, Stp will be lost and committing three units to defending Stp is counter productive. Berlin and Munich are tougher nuts to crack but are not easily defended if the Baltic is not possessed AND StP requires defense.

France needs to stop playing footsie with England.
14 Mar 20 UTC Spring, 1908: Don’t forget Turkey, Russia! As much as his words wounded me, his alliance with Italy makes him worthy of my support too.
15 Mar 20 UTC Spring, 1908: Bite me France
15 Mar 20 UTC Spring, 1908: Why can’t we be friends, why can’t we be friends...
15 Mar 20 UTC Spring, 1908: Because we are self respecting people who don’t like being spoken to as if we’re children
15 Mar 20 UTC Spring, 1908: I think you’re just being a bit of a killjoy. Who doesn’t like a bit of roleplaying and grandstanding?
15 Mar 20 UTC Spring, 1908: I like how my comment about holding the north with one fleet went by without so much a peep. Show us how Russia can defend Den, Swe, Stp with one fleet. I would love to see it.
15 Mar 20 UTC Spring, 1908: Oh I just like being spiteful
15 Mar 20 UTC Spring, 1908: Go England!
15 Mar 20 UTC Spring, 1908: Well fought Turkey
15 Mar 20 UTC Spring, 1908: England, we all see where this is going. Why do you continue to make things difficult?
15 Mar 20 UTC Spring, 1908: If we wanted easy we would have all voted to draw on the first turn, I didn't see you telling Turkey to give up and let Russia take them
15 Mar 20 UTC Spring, 1908: Preach it England
15 Mar 20 UTC Spring, 1908: Good game everyone
15 Mar 20 UTC Autumn, 1908: I have no response, England. I guess we'll see how long you can last.
15 Mar 20 UTC Autumn, 1908: I'm guessing not long gg all
15 Mar 20 UTC Autumn, 1908: Another two or three turns at least! I believe! If you manage to survive France you can draw with Austria and I if we make it.
15 Mar 20 UTC Spring, 1909: RIP England, gone but not forgotten
16 Mar 20 UTC Spring, 1909: Time for a draw surely?
16 Mar 20 UTC Spring, 1909: I am already set to draw.
16 Mar 20 UTC Spring, 1909: Alright... I'll draw as well
16 Mar 20 UTC Spring, 1909: I'll concede that if we keep playing it will likely be a french victory
16 Mar 20 UTC Spring, 1909: in that case... why would I draw?
16 Mar 20 UTC Spring, 1909: To start another game?
16 Mar 20 UTC Spring, 1909: Austria and I flubbed on setting orders to ready to try and move the game along a few times now. We're down 2-3 SCs from it. Oh well, it happens learning the UI
16 Mar 20 UTC Spring, 1909: you know you can play multiple games at a time
16 Mar 20 UTC Spring, 1909: Not a huge fan of more than a game at a time and there's no forfeit option :P Playing out the string is tedious
22 Mar 20 UTC Autumn, 1911: 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.
25 Mar 20 UTC GG everyone, thanks for sticking it out to the end
25 Mar 20 UTC Nicely done in not taking the easy victory, France. I salute you.
26 Mar 20 UTC Good job France
26 Mar 20 UTC Thank you. Good luck in your next games!
