03 Aug 20 UTC Spring, 1904: Why was he banned?
03 Aug 20 UTC Spring, 1904: Probably realised he broke a rule?
03 Aug 20 UTC Spring, 1904: I mean ok
04 Aug 20 UTC Spring, 1904: New Russia here. Where’s the vodka?
04 Aug 20 UTC Spring, 1904: spilt onto the floor sadly

22 Aug 20 UTC Spring, 1910: Based on the disbands, it now looks like England will play kingmaker and actively help France solo win. That is unfortunate.
22 Aug 20 UTC Spring, 1910: France -- Enjoy your tainted solo win. Maybe you can get the North Sea to convoy Belgium to Denmark to move things along a bit quicker.
22 Aug 20 UTC Spring, 1910: A bit harsh. Work with Italy to force a draw. :-)
24 Aug 20 UTC Autumn, 1910: England is such a joke. Didn’t even try to defend Denmark.
25 Aug 20 UTC Autumn, 1910: You continue to meet my expectations.
29 Aug 20 UTC Autumn, 1912: France -- Now that I will build a fleet at St.P southern coast, your path to a solo victory is blocked. It looks like a stalemate, and now would be a good time to vote draw.
29 Aug 20 UTC Autumn, 1912: I share Russian sentiment. Unless, of course, you wish to go on to get 3 additional points.
29 Aug 20 UTC Autumn, 1912: I haven’t thought it all the way out but I kind of thought I could brute force my way to st Pete with enough time? Further than that, obviously not
29 Aug 20 UTC Autumn, 1912: Now that I have my StP south coast fleet I will be support holding Norway and Sweden each turn. GoB will bump Baltic Sea to break support. Livonia and Warsaw both support Prussia. Galicia support Boh. You can’t advance.
29 Aug 20 UTC Autumn, 1912: Moscow to StP.
29 Aug 20 UTC Autumn, 1912: Let's split Scandinavia and then draw. I'll take Norway, you take Sweden?
29 Aug 20 UTC Autumn, 1912: I’ll pass. Not worth the extra 3 points. Too risky. I’ll just support hold both like I said earlier.
29 Aug 20 UTC Autumn, 1912: Ok I won't hold out forever, but I do think there is something here to try.
29 Aug 20 UTC Autumn, 1912: Thanks Russia.Great negotiating, not too often seen recently, at least on this site. The mayhem had reached its climax, do you agree Italy?:)
31 Aug 20 UTC Good game all. Honestly, I had a better shot to solo than France.
31 Aug 20 UTC England’s disbands were not at all helpful in getting us to this point.
31 Aug 20 UTC Lol what
31 Aug 20 UTC Gg all. Autumn1913, is well played. Definitely would like to see you all again on the other boards.
31 Aug 20 UTC Good game everyone
31 Aug 20 UTC GG
31 Aug 20 UTC Since France doesn't see Russia's path to solo, I'll explain. Not saying I was going to do this, but it was an option. It was a risky option that only had a 50-50 shot at best and would require Italy to not expect a stab and France to not move back to Kiel.

Fall 1913 -- Italy and I agreed to convoy Greece to Apu
Italy will bump Munich will I take Silesia (disband resulting) from Galicia
St P takes Norway with support of Finland. GoB holds Sweden.
Build 1914 -- Build a fleet at StP
Spring 1914 -- Take Berlin (assuming Kiel is still empty)
-- Take Sweden with Norway Army and move St P Fleet to Norway
-- Ionian support Tunis
-- Naples support Tyrr
Fall 1914 -- Apu support Ionian Sea to Naples
Bohemia swipe Vie (would require Italy to not anticipate stab)
Budapest swipe Trieste (would require Italy to not anticipate stab)
31 Aug 20 UTC Lol
31 Aug 20 UTC If you tried to stab me I would have thrown the game to France
31 Aug 20 UTC Of course. That’s why it was too risky to seriously consider. I’d have to already have 15 SCs locked up in spring (doable with France’s tactical blunders) before stabbing you and pick up the last 3 SCs from stabbing you in the fall. If I came up even 1 short, you and France’s fleets would be in the Aegean and EMS long before I could get Sev-built fleets in place.
31 Aug 20 UTC My only point is that if France had a 15% chance at guessing right for a solo, I had more like a 40% or 50% chance to solo.
31 Aug 20 UTC Lol
31 Aug 20 UTC Yet here we are
31 Aug 20 UTC Because I generally prefer 3-way/4-way draws and am fairly risk averse :p
