10 Jun 11 UTC Spring, 1901: Oh most benevolent leaders, I welcome you to this conference where we will discuss things might and small. May the best Italian win! Seriously though, I wish you all a good game with no NMRs!
14 Jun 11 UTC Spring, 1901: Everyone back from the weekend yet?
14 Jun 11 UTC Spring, 1901: i'm pretending that I'm not....
14 Jun 11 UTC Spring, 1901: Hello all and good luck. Yeah, let's unpause and start this.
14 Jun 11 UTC Spring, 1901: hello to all and good luck :)
24 Jun 11 UTC Autumn, 1902: Hi all - I'm travelling tonight - can i get a pause until sat night? please
24 Jun 11 UTC Autumn, 1902: I've paused.
24 Jun 11 UTC Autumn, 1902: No problem. Enjoy the trip.
27 Jun 11 UTC Spring, 1903: ok to unpause now - thanks
28 Jun 11 UTC Spring, 1903: Just you left Germany, for unpausing.
05 Jul 11 UTC Autumn, 1903: I'm going to be offline most of Tuesday, but should be able to talk late Tuesday night and Monday before well before the end of phase.
05 Jul 11 UTC Spring, 1904: Do you need a pause?
06 Jul 11 UTC Spring, 1904: I'll have time to talk more in the morning before the phase change so I think I'm okay.
22 Jul 11 UTC Autumn, 1906: Okay, then. So be it.
23 Jul 11 UTC Autumn, 1906: If France won't talk to me, then I must assume he plans to eliminate me on the way to the stalemate, so why should I help? France has been screwing me over all game, I see no reason to help him do so.
27 Jul 11 UTC Autumn, 1907: Can you elaborate how was I screwing you all game... I can't remember attacking you? Are you sure you're not talking about Austria? Or it's my fault he stabbed you?
28 Jul 11 UTC Autumn, 1907: Autumn 1901, you moved at me to trick England. But that forced me to defend, delaying my gains against Turkey. Autumn 1903, you once again, moved at me to trick England, once again forcing me to protect myself.

Both of those moves, delayed my growth, and allowed Austria extra growth, completely screwing me out of a good position in this game. Worked great in the short term for you, but not so great in the long term.
28 Jul 11 UTC Autumn, 1907: That's total nonsense, but I really don't see the point in arguing...
28 Jul 11 UTC Autumn, 1907: That's fine. We're clearly coming from very different viewpoints.
30 Jul 11 UTC Spring, 1908: Well, comgratulations to Austria and his minion Italy.
31 Jul 11 UTC Spring, 1908: Thank you France. I don't think that Italy is minion. We talked much about strategy and tactics in the game and I believe his knowledge of tactics is great.

Your faint attacks slow him down greatly, so I got upper hand in Asia. If Italy managed to take Ankara before me we would have been in very balanced state. In Spring 1905 Germany sensed his border to the south is unprotected so he moved units to cover it. If I were little weaker in that moment I would not even think to go north.

By coincidence I played another game similar to this one. I was Austria too. But Italy developed quickly in the east (France was friendly toward Italy) so he took entire Asia minor. That game ended in draw (4wd with Germany, France, Italy and Austria).

Anyway, I enjoyed this game greatly and I hope we will play again sometime soon. I am interested to see who people are:)
31 Jul 11 UTC Spring, 1908: I believe this game deserves a new thread in the forum (once it's finished), so that Italy and, to a certain extent Germany, can share their views on why they helped you solo in a WTA game in a tournament where only solos matter.
31 Jul 11 UTC Spring, 1908: Otherwise, I'm sure you're happy with Italy... which kind of proves he played like your minion all game.
31 Jul 11 UTC Spring, 1908: Maybe because you muted almost every player in the game?
31 Jul 11 UTC Spring, 1908: Maybe you finally realize you defending them only proves my point? :)
31 Jul 11 UTC Spring, 1908: I'm certainly happy to discuss this on the forum.
