01 Jul 20 UTC Autumn, 1905: Thanks Germany! I knew I could count on you!
02 Jul 20 UTC Spring, 1906: France and Austria, any chance you two could hit pause? I did notify goldie but we can also handle it ourselves.
02 Jul 20 UTC Spring, 1906: https://webdiplomacy.net/contactUsDirect.php => Personal Emergency (Automatic Pause)
02 Jul 20 UTC Spring, 1906: In case you really want to pause
02 Jul 20 UTC Spring, 1906: You also can email to mod for help if you need it
02 Jul 20 UTC Spring, 1906: Yep, done.
02 Jul 20 UTC Spring, 1906: Sorry, I've missed that message. I've voted now.I will ask the mod for the pause.
02 Jul 20 UTC Spring, 1906: I already have PMd Goldie; they said to PM when I left. We’re on the road now.
02 Jul 20 UTC Spring, 1906: Moderator: (Aurelin): Paused.
02 Jul 20 UTC Spring, 1906: Sorry, I was also quicker in messaging than reading well...
02 Jul 20 UTC Spring, 1906: I vote first, and can wait for Russia as the last vote unpause!
06 Jul 20 UTC Spring, 1906: Back in to it folks; looks like there were some delays to the phases due to the server so it seems my absence was fortuitous. Thanks for the pause and unpause.
06 Jul 20 UTC Spring, 1906: Welcome back! I hope you've enjoyed your trip!
And look we are the winners, we've restarted first from the tournament games! :)
07 Jul 20 UTC Spring, 1906: Ok, let’s draw now and call it a day, then.
08 Jul 20 UTC Spring, 1906: Russia pulling off a massacre of a stab
08 Jul 20 UTC Spring, 1906: I am not sure about how appropriate to call it a massacre. I think if it didn't happen now, it never would have.
10 Jul 20 UTC Autumn, 1906: Sorry guys for the slow replies, I was on a hike, just arrived at home. I thought I will have internet in the mountain house, it is close to the civilization, but it is on 2250. I'm thinking on I will use an excuse miss to have chance to reply to all.
10 Jul 20 UTC Autumn, 1906: Want to pause?
10 Jul 20 UTC Autumn, 1906: No, we can't discuss during a pause, and I can write only now.
10 Jul 20 UTC Autumn, 1906: Not all of us has responded, and it was my mistake because I wrote too late. So, I hope you won't mind if I use the excused miss for a little prolongation of this turn.
10 Jul 20 UTC Autumn, 1906: 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.
12 Jul 20 UTC Autumn, 1906: I hate my effing game!!!! I second-thought myself and that's always the end to everyone of my games. No killer instinct and too emotionally tied. It's like I have a knack for kicking myself in my own gonads!
12 Jul 20 UTC Autumn, 1906: See ya around Austria. We didn't interact much but you hung in there. Cheers!
12 Jul 20 UTC Autumn, 1906: See ya too lads!
14 Jul 20 UTC Autumn, 1906: Just a heads up but my wife and I will be at our trailer from today until Sunday. Wifi is spotty so I won't be AS active but will be around.
15 Jul 20 UTC Spring, 1907: Alright; did one of you hit ready early?
15 Jul 20 UTC Spring, 1907: Why? Most of time I use ready button, but now I've didn't.
20 Jul 20 UTC Autumn, 1907: Tournament fatigue, anyone?
22 Jul 20 UTC Autumn, 1907: Not really, I'm on holiday with family. :) Now I'm sure I can step, but I'm slower.
22 Jul 20 UTC Autumn, 1907: Really long Tournament. We should make it as a final round for winner only.
22 Jul 20 UTC Autumn, 1907: In fact, as a replacement, it is a bit over my imagination.
22 Jul 20 UTC Spring, 1908: Ah, didn't realize you were a replacement Italy. Thanks for stepping in. I think it will be a while before goldfinger runs another tournament.
22 Jul 20 UTC Spring, 1908: France, you're kind of going to have a hard time getting that ship out of Marseilles, aren't you?
22 Jul 20 UTC Spring, 1908: No Russia, I am original in Italy here! I were the replacement in third round!
22 Jul 20 UTC Spring, 1908: Haha
22 Jul 20 UTC Spring, 1908: Oh no, I knew you've been in this game from the beginning, Italy. Just commenting on what a good thing it was that you did step in.
22 Jul 20 UTC Spring, 1908: That ship is for defense. :) You have together 7 ship at South, I thought it will be better to have 4-5 ship to be sure noone get through.
25 Jul 20 UTC Autumn, 1908: Moderator: (goldfinger0303): Pausing. Will unpause Sunday
26 Jul 20 UTC Autumn, 1908: Moderator: (goldfinger0303): Unpaused
06 Aug 20 UTC Autumn, 1910: Hi all!
I'm in the mountains ls again. I love to be there. :) This time with my older daughter. It's only 24 hours, I have good internet now, but I might answer slower.
07 Aug 20 UTC I give this point for France, Spending time well with your family!
07 Aug 20 UTC Sorry Russia, Sorry Germany for that!
07 Aug 20 UTC No problems Italy. I have no chance on the tournament. And this was a clear draw.
Good game all.
Thanks for the cooperation France.
Great defense Russia.
07 Aug 20 UTC Well played; fitting draw. I’m not sure what the map would have looked like if I had followed through on taking this three centres from Italy.

Thank you for the game and good spirits.
08 Aug 20 UTC Oh, it was a surprise to see the draw. Thanks a lot for the game, I've enjoyed a lot, and thanks for the topboard point, I think all of you would deserve it. It was a great alliance with rdrivera, you were a fantastic ally, you won me with the not-building in the beginning. I have already used it, in an other game. :)
Sorry nguyment for the stab(s), it was a difficult, but otherwise clear decision to move against you. You can say anything about smart palyers, I know you won our small war.
I would really happily risk almost anything to have chance for the solo, even stab rdrivera, which would be an other difficult decision. This point is only good for me for a stronger second position, which could be of course still better than I've expected for me at the beginning of the tournament.
I wish you good luck and good coming games. I hope we will meet in other games.
08 Aug 20 UTC In fact, i am trying to break thought the balance, but Germany is too strong in keeping position, Good game Germany! Me and Russia has made some wrong plan in the North, Later, I can see that Germany and France can share 9SCs and Italy and Russia may stand in a worse position. We have no choice.
08 Aug 20 UTC I really feel amazing about the patient of France and Germany! They are in really good position to turn to eachother!
08 Aug 20 UTC But they decision to keep friendship! GG all!
08 Aug 20 UTC Italy, it's all a question to what you can get from a stab. We have a sure draw, considering the position (the board top didn't really mean much to me) and I would only stab to try a solo.
You didn't agree with me, but your move to Mun killed my solo chance. When Russia attacked you I was preparing to move on France. I had a build that will allow me to take Bur and then it will be an open game. Then you took Mun, denied me the build and forced me to invite France on Bur to retake it. And then you get upset I didn't trust you to stab France. It doesn't make sense, at least on my point of view.
09 Aug 20 UTC We are the guys have no choices from beginning bro, France and You are in better position in very early time!
