18 Jan 11 UTC Autumn, 2001: [South-Africa]:Just as soon as it actually shows me what moves I can make . . . orders have been slightly bugged for me.
19 Jan 11 UTC Autumn, 2001: [Oz]:You can't make any moves. There is nowhere you can retreat to. You can't retreat to a territory that has been bounced in. Disband. It's all you can do.
19 Jan 11 UTC Autumn, 2001: [South-Africa]:Yes, Oz, I know that. As you may have noticed, that's what I've done, given that it's a new turn.

However, it wasn't loading enough to allow me to do that when I logged in earlier.
23 Jan 11 UTC Autumn, 2002: [Russia]:so critical position i am in :-(
23 Jan 11 UTC Autumn, 2002: [Near-East]:North America looks like a bedlam.
24 Jan 11 UTC Autumn, 2002: [China]:it is a bit of a mess over there... meanwhile Africa looks united. Funny how these things work out...
05 Feb 11 UTC Spring, 2005: [Ghana]:Near-East im sorry, but you ARE the weakest link. Goodbye.
05 Feb 11 UTC Spring, 2005: [Russia]:well it will be just a matter of time until i fall from chinese hands
05 Feb 11 UTC Spring, 2005: [Near-East]:'Defeat makes us invincible'
06 Feb 11 UTC Autumn, 2005: [Russia]:aahh shut up where both near to our ends
06 Feb 11 UTC Autumn, 2005: [Near-East]:Silence you peasant!
07 Feb 11 UTC Autumn, 2005: [Ghana]:anybody up to a draw after this year since we will b down to 9 players an all make a pretty damn good win off this one? live games take so long to finish
07 Feb 11 UTC Autumn, 2005: [Ghana]:world* not live lol mistype....i must need to sleep lol
07 Feb 11 UTC Autumn, 2005: [Russia]:you impudent!
07 Feb 11 UTC Autumn, 2005: [Russia]:your valued oil is nothing!!
07 Feb 11 UTC Autumn, 2005: [Near-East]:A draw? What an excellent idea!
07 Feb 11 UTC Autumn, 2005: [Ghana]:then again we could wait a year or two and take out some weaker players so we win more points...
07 Feb 11 UTC Autumn, 2005: [Near-East]:Your capitalistic suggestion denies the playerbase any fulfillment of their unconscious aspiration for socialism!
09 Feb 11 UTC Spring, 2006: [China]:Draw is good when we get to around 3-5ish. ;)
19 Feb 11 UTC Spring, 2008: [Oz]:Word to the wise, China's heading for a solo. And I feel stupid because it's mostly my fault, sigh.
19 Feb 11 UTC Spring, 2008: [China]:Solo this game? That's funny...

I'll announce this in general chat- I'm going for a 3way tie. My two allies know who they are. Sorry Oz, you're not one of them.
19 Feb 11 UTC Spring, 2008: [China]:Only reason I don't say who my allies are is so they don't draw Oz's ire ;)
19 Feb 11 UTC Spring, 2008: [Oz]:My ire? I got inactive and am having my derrier kicked. I am physically incapable of attacking anyone. China said he'd do a juggernaut and then he attacked me. The only person here safe from China (in the short term at least) is Quebec, and I am the most vulnerable. I'll get a 1 center survive out of this, at best. Russia ain't coming back and China controls Eurasia. Let me count for you. China controls 17 SCs. He will control Yak, WAu, Vic, NSW, NZe, Stp, Bel, Ukr, and Arm, with probable Len, Cas, Tur, Irq. That's 30. Kenya, Ghana, do you honestly think you'll have enough to guaruntee to stop him? China has nine fleets. Kenya, you have three. Kenya, I'm sorry, but I attacked you thinking China was on my side. Please do not make the same mistake, or you -will- be next.
19 Feb 11 UTC Spring, 2008: [China]:So you're worried I'll end up with 30? Takes 44 to solo last time I checked.

Guess I'll just have to prove you wrong when I draw this game with 2 allies and you, along with the rest, are dead. I'm not a greedy player- you can look at my past games and see that. I draw FAR more often than I go for a win.
20 Feb 11 UTC Spring, 2008: [Oz]:I am worried that you'll have thirty and will only face 12 center Kenya and Ghana. I'm worried that after you take Australia, you'll launch an assault and take the Indian without contest.
It is worth noting that China has promised a three-way draw. Ghana, Kenya, and Quebec, one of you won't be in the draw. All three of you are cooperating with him. If you aren't one of the three, you must know that they plan on killing you. Even if you are, be wary that China hasn't promised the same to all three of you. Look what he's done to me, his most trusted all. And look at the board; he has Eurasia and nothing meaningful to stop him. It's not hard to see how this will go.
20 Feb 11 UTC Autumn, 2008: [China]:This is nothing but someone's last ditch efforts to turn everyone on me- which will mostly benefit Oz, who is not going to withstand these attacks.

Like I said, you'll just have to see how this one finishes.
21 Feb 11 UTC Autumn, 2008: [Near-East]:Oh Argentina , how you disappoint me...
21 Feb 11 UTC Autumn, 2008: [China]:It is a bummer Argentina has not been around...
22 Feb 11 UTC Autumn, 2008: [China]:'bout to watch the vultures descend on CD Argentina... this should be entertaining...
22 Feb 11 UTC Autumn, 2008: [Ghana]:lol idk why they left when they should have been gaining power, if they didnt miss last phase they could have easily stopped my convoy but hey i aint guna complain =)
22 Feb 11 UTC Autumn, 2008: [China]:On the bright side, the turns should go quicker...
22 Feb 11 UTC Spring, 2009: [China]:This game has a new level of complexity with so many fleets...
23 Feb 11 UTC Spring, 2009: [Argentina]:New to this so may be bad
23 Feb 11 UTC Spring, 2009: [Quebec]:Ouch, sorry bud.
25 Feb 11 UTC Autumn, 2009: [China]:Yeah.... you didn't really pick a good time to jump in, new Argentina :-/
26 Feb 11 UTC Autumn, 2009: [Oz]:Start a new game from the beginning Argentina. You are entirely guarunteed to lose this one (much like I will, it seems). The previous Argentina leaving ensured my elimination. Order your units to retreat somewhere. I'd keep the armies you have on the South American continent alive. Don't take this game as indicative of diplomacy as a whole. You joined in a losing position.
26 Feb 11 UTC Autumn, 2009: [Russia]:ohhh for me i just hoped some1 can with stand the chinese
28 Feb 11 UTC Spring, 2010: [Quebec]:How would you all feel about drawing this game now? It's getting rather tedious...
28 Feb 11 UTC Spring, 2010: [China]:Sorry, I'm drawing at 3. Too many points to gain to warrant splitting it out 4-6 ways.
28 Feb 11 UTC Spring, 2010: [Near-East]:He has a point.
02 Mar 11 UTC Autumn, 2010: [Quebec]:Is Kenya actually doing anything besides sitting around with a thumb up his ass?
02 Mar 11 UTC Autumn, 2010: [Kenya]:Not really no. There isn't much I can do to stop it at this point. I have been issuing orders though and will continue to do so until the bitter end.
02 Mar 11 UTC Autumn, 2010: [Ghana]:thank you for dying with honor kenya instead of just giving up your lands, sorry it had to end this way for you
03 Mar 11 UTC Autumn, 2010: [Near-East]:You should have listened...!

:p
07 Mar 11 UTC Autumn, 2011: [Quebec]:And now the taking out of the garbage begins...
07 Mar 11 UTC Autumn, 2011: [Ghana]:that it does lol
07 Mar 11 UTC Autumn, 2011: [Oz]:You miss one day and this is what happens. Sigh.
07 Mar 11 UTC Autumn, 2011: [Quebec]:Please don't draw this out, just make your moves and let's get this over with
13 Mar 11 UTC [Ghana]:OZ left and tbh im sick of this game, its been going on forever. lets just draw now
13 Mar 11 UTC [China]:draw it is. nice 3way deal guys :)
