12 Apr 20 UTC Spring, 1901: Moderator: (goldfinger0303): Hi everyone, this is all set to go.

As a reminder, the only way to score points in this tournament is through solos or board tops.
Solos = 1 point
Non-solo board tops = 0.1 points
Draws (for everyone but the SC leader) = 0 points

Updated scores for the tournament can be found on my latest forum post.
12 Apr 20 UTC Spring, 1901: We declare war on the English!
12 Apr 20 UTC Spring, 1901: Well, I'm no History Professor. But I've been told that wars against England rarely go well. Far be it from me to be a party pooper, though! So you go right ahead and do what you gotta do, Austria! You can count on me to...sit and watch while eating some popcorn.
13 Apr 20 UTC Spring, 1901: Yes but there are no Americans to fly in this time! Only joking, i am a proud Brit myself!!

12 May 20 UTC Autumn, 1906: Lol. Fucks sake russia, wp germany
12 May 20 UTC Autumn, 1906: Sorry for that France! Germany helped me too much at Scandinavia, when he was asking me to help I felt I need to do that.
I wish you good luck!

Maybe this means we could break finally Italy. :) Or not. :)
16 Jun 20 UTC Spring, 1910: Who's to say that I'm not already broken?
18 Jun 20 UTC Spring, 1910: Moderator: (goldfinger0303): Hi all. Replacement is in. Have a user-requested pause through Friday, so this will be on hold a little longer.

06 Jul 20 UTC Spring, 1912: Moderator: (goldfinger0303): Unpaused. Sorry for the delay, I had thought Kestas would unpause everything in one go this morning.
11 Jul 20 UTC Autumn, 1912: Hi all!
What do you think if we would draw here? @Italy: my congratulation to you, you played very-very well, I felt you find out everytime what I have in mind, and you find the best move against it. And our cooperation with France wasn't very smooth, but as I see we could form a stalemateline in the very last position. We can defend Mos-War-Sil-Mun after my build in StP and also Bur-Gas-MAO-Por as we did in this turn.
If you all think that is clear we can defend this line we could draw even now.
11 Jul 20 UTC Spring, 1913: My draw vote is in.
12 Jul 20 UTC Spring, 1913: 17 that’s close!

13 Jul 20 UTC Spring, 1913: Moderator: (goldfinger0303): I'll check on the player

14 Jul 20 UTC Spring, 1913: Sorry everyone
14 Jul 20 UTC Spring, 1913: Moderator: (goldfinger0303): Pushing this forward then
14 Jul 20 UTC No, problem. Welcome back! :)
I hope everything is okey with You!
14 Jul 20 UTC @Germany, France: I think we should do this again.
@Italy: if you don't have idea how to break this defense, I think we should go for the draw.
16 Jul 20 UTC Hey there everyone. I tore at this every way I could, and I can't solo. I'm stalemated here and can't break it.

Tournament or no, I have to say that this was a really fun game played against quality people. You guys are all aces in my book! Thanks for a fun one!
16 Jul 20 UTC Good game everyone. Congrats on topping the board Italy.
16 Jul 20 UTC Congratulation to You, Yigg! It was a great win for sure. I was afraid it will be You, but this way there is no question You deserve the 1st position, You played so good here. And as I see You could topboard also in Round 7, so you fully gained the 1st position.
16 Jul 20 UTC From you, kissemo, that's high praise! Thank you! :)
