23 Aug 10 UTC Autumn, 2: @Greece: Please do not attack Egypt. Not only will it weaken me by strengthening Carthage, but it will also make Persia stronger as Persia will be able to conquer Egyptian supply centers.
23 Aug 10 UTC Autumn, 2: @Persia: Peace? Tell me quick, as I'll need to change my order of moving to Nabatea and Syrian Sea
23 Aug 10 UTC Autumn, 2: i will not attack egypt.
24 Aug 10 UTC Autumn, 2: @Greece: Well you did attack me. Please withdraw all your forces--I will continue attacking Persia if you comply with me
24 Aug 10 UTC Spring, 3: @Greece: I do not wish to have a war, but if you wish to weaken Egypt and thereby strengthening Carthage, I have no choice but war
24 Aug 10 UTC Spring, 3: Persia, don't quit yet. If Greece continues attacking me, I will give you Tyre and Jerusalem so that you and Rome can defeat Greece.
25 Aug 10 UTC Autumn, 3: im only bouncing egypt in alexandria.
no need to attack me. if you want i'll stop i won't attack him anymore. i just want persia out
25 Aug 10 UTC Autumn, 3: im not moving to alexandria this turn, or cyrene. im only fighting persia.
25 Aug 10 UTC Autumn, 3: @Greece: If you dare bounce me again, I will continue with my plan to strenghthening Persia.
@Persia: Which supply center would you like first: Tyre or Jerusalem? Please respond before I go offline
25 Aug 10 UTC Autumn, 3: @Rome: Please don't lie. I WILL attack you this turn, but will return Sparta and Macedonia after you prove that you are not going to attack Egypt. For instance, you may move the Libyan Sea to either Gulf of Tacape or Gulf of Syrtis to prove that you're against Carthage
25 Aug 10 UTC Autumn, 3: the recent message was at Greece. Sorry about mistaking it with myself
25 Aug 10 UTC Autumn, 3: @Persia: You can stand Greece out of Damascus and move Sidon down to Tyre. I hope Egypt will arrive in time
25 Aug 10 UTC Autumn, 3: shut the hell up rome, you're not the boss here. i'll do what i want, if you still attack me. and persia is done for. what's the point of doing what you say if you want to attack me still, u just want SC's to win and if you built your fleet agiast carthage, you would have the upper hand. if this is what you call an alliance, you're a shitty player. i dont' need you. go for the attack.
i will help carthage destroy you
26 Aug 10 UTC Autumn, 3: you talk to persia like im the big terrible guy, he said he wants to attack me first in the way begining so i attacked. trust me now? or are you going to keep attacking cuz you want to win and don't care about anything else. rome, you're not the best guy here so stop telling people what to do.
26 Aug 10 UTC Autumn, 3: Did they switch the bounce mechanic? Bc. Shouldnt mine and Eygpts move in phazania have bounced?
26 Aug 10 UTC Autumn, 3: phazania was already there, so you just bounced off
26 Aug 10 UTC Spring, 4: @Greece: Given that you are attacking Rome, may we have peace?
26 Aug 10 UTC Spring, 4: im not attacking rome but i am going to take my land back
but sure peace it is
26 Aug 10 UTC Spring, 4: but i'd like sidon and antioch
27 Aug 10 UTC Spring, 4: @Greece: You asked for war. You are not trustworthy--you said you wouldn't attack Egypt but moved to Alexandria.

@Egypt: Why put your stakes on one who isn't trustworthy?
27 Aug 10 UTC Spring, 4: @Greece: Sure, but can you not try taking the Syrian or Egyptian Sea?
28 Aug 10 UTC Spring, 4: rome, why does me attacking egypt offend you enough that you must break our alliance to attack me? you started the war against me first.
you never even agreed to have an alliance with egypt
28 Aug 10 UTC Spring, 4: @Greece: well you did backstab him by saying you wouldn't attack him and then moving to Alexandria. I ally with trustworthy people. In addition, I want Carthage defeated.
28 Aug 10 UTC Spring, 4: its called lying to your enemies. smart one, this is diplomacy, not pre-school. grow up. and now, you're gonna get screwed over
28 Aug 10 UTC Spring, 4: Well this is a game for honest people to prevail in--if you have a good reputation, your allies will trust you
28 Aug 10 UTC Spring, 4: well egypt wasnt' my ally, u were, did i lie to you? yeah thought so, just shut up u just want to go for the win
28 Aug 10 UTC Autumn, 4: I just want to confirm this: is Greece planning to attack me?
28 Aug 10 UTC Autumn, 4: no im not,
want to DMZ syrian and egyptian?
28 Aug 10 UTC Autumn, 4: @Carthage: Do you need a pause?
28 Aug 10 UTC Autumn, 4: i can pause
28 Aug 10 UTC Autumn, 4: i need a pause on september 2 btw for 5 days
28 Aug 10 UTC Autumn, 4: @Greece: Sure, but may I take the Syrian Sea this turn just to balance things out? (You currently have three troops at our borders while I only have two and one in backup)
28 Aug 10 UTC Autumn, 4: well one of them is moving out this turn.
28 Aug 10 UTC Autumn, 4: Oh really, Egypt, do you believe your ally Greece? How do you know he won't stab you. Greece is already a dead empire--I'm taking Sparta, his last home supply center, this turn.
28 Aug 10 UTC Autumn, 4: And after taking Sparta, I'll take to the Aegean Sea supplies
28 Aug 10 UTC Autumn, 4: @Egypt: If you ally WITH ME, I will give you all of the south and Saguntum (because I am keeping my guard against Carthage in case he suddenly goes active)
29 Aug 10 UTC Spring, 5: so what's it going to be egypt?
30 Aug 10 UTC Autumn, 5: Rome, because he is less demanding
30 Aug 10 UTC Autumn, 5: and what did i demand about? do you see all that red writing up there or what?
30 Aug 10 UTC Autumn, 5: so can we pause?
01 Sep 10 UTC Autumn, 6: why do you want a pause?
01 Sep 10 UTC Autumn, 6: Greece should be called Turkey--it no longer owns Grecian territory
01 Sep 10 UTC Autumn, 6: @Greece: Rome has certainly written more--but he makes arguments while you made demands. Not only did you attempt to backstab me (which's attempt was failed due to the virtues of Rome), but you also gained 5 supply centers by attacking Persia while I only gained 1. You should have, at the least, given me Sidon.
01 Sep 10 UTC Autumn, 6: im leaving on a camping trip for 5 days
02 Sep 10 UTC Autumn, 6: proof?
02 Sep 10 UTC Autumn, 6: proof?
02 Sep 10 UTC Spring, 7: u need proof for me leaving?
03 Sep 10 UTC Autumn, 7: well you didn't leave
04 Sep 10 UTC Autumn, 7: @Egypt: try logging in as much as possible so that we can do a live game. I suppose I ihave shown myself against you
05 Sep 10 UTC Autumn, 7: sure. I'll try being on when this phase ends
