28 Feb 12 UTC Autumn, 2005: [Brazil]:Haha "which he's almost done." You mean, he *could* have done at the beginning of 2005 but was too incompetent to do so.
28 Feb 12 UTC Autumn, 2005: [South-Africa]:Yes, he was too incompetent to destroy you, so instead of destroying you, he destroyed you.
28 Feb 12 UTC Autumn, 2005: [Argentina]:haha, brazil telling argentina hes incompetent.. funny.. haha.. you funny man brazil..
03 Mar 12 UTC Spring, 2006: [Argentina]:Thank you for playing Brazil. Good Game.
03 Mar 12 UTC Spring, 2006: [Russia]:its not over till the fat lady sings...
03 Mar 12 UTC Spring, 2006: [Russia]:XD
03 Mar 12 UTC Spring, 2006: [South-Africa]:He isn't done until you move WAO to Uruguay ;)
03 Mar 12 UTC Spring, 2006: [Russia]:lol nice try south africa, plenty of other ways , without giving you WAO XD
03 Mar 12 UTC Spring, 2006: [South-Africa]:No, there are other ways, but all of them use WAO.
04 Mar 12 UTC Spring, 2006: [Russia]:no they dont actually
04 Mar 12 UTC Spring, 2006: [Russia]:in fact he doesn't have to use any fleets
04 Mar 12 UTC Spring, 2006: [Russia]:Men supports Scr to Bai this spring, and then Bai supports Men to Uru in august taking the final center of brazils and not loseing any ocean power
04 Mar 12 UTC Spring, 2006: [Russia]::P
04 Mar 12 UTC Spring, 2006: [South-Africa]:Well, I was thinking of surrounding him, but that works. Forcing him to disband the army would not require any time taken in the fall.
04 Mar 12 UTC Spring, 2006: [Argentina]:Wonderful. I think you should watch and see what the next turn brings about. It should work. It might suprise you.
04 Mar 12 UTC Spring, 2006: [South-Africa]:I love surprises.
05 Mar 12 UTC Spring, 2006: [Brazil]:Surprise. It didn't work. Maybe you should have listened to your friends, Argentina.
05 Mar 12 UTC Spring, 2006: [South-Africa]:It actually did work, just not as swiftly. He can simply bounce Santa Cruz with Buenos Aires and Chile, holding Uruguay, and the only thing he doesn't accomplish is a fully colored South America. Good game, Brazil.
05 Mar 12 UTC Spring, 2006: [Brazil]:No, it didn't work at eliminating me this turn, which is what you were advocating for, SA. Argentina implied that he would create an equal result to your scheme while doing it more efficiently. Thus he failed.
05 Mar 12 UTC Spring, 2006: [South-Africa]:Yes, Brazil, like I said, good game.
05 Mar 12 UTC Spring, 2006: [Argentina]:WAH!!
05 Mar 12 UTC Spring, 2006: [Argentina]:if I am correct, you Brazil's last unit should not be able to retreat anywhere.
05 Mar 12 UTC Spring, 2006: [South-Africa]:It can go to Mendoza, but that poses no issues for you.
06 Mar 12 UTC Spring, 2006: [Argentina]:I must be mistaken then.. because I just moved a unit from mendoza, and I thought you couldnt retreat there.. hmm, oh well, we shall see.
06 Mar 12 UTC Spring, 2006: [South-Africa]:You can retreat there as long as that was not the attacking unit, which it wasn't.
06 Mar 12 UTC Spring, 2006: [Russia]:does it matter?... no
06 Mar 12 UTC Spring, 2006: [Brazil]:It does show that Argentina is incompetent, though, if he thought his move set would result in my having no retreat options.
06 Mar 12 UTC Spring, 2006: [Russia]:it makes no difference to the outcome though
06 Mar 12 UTC Spring, 2006: [South-Africa]:As long as Brazil is happy to have lost so pathetically, I have nothing to say.
06 Mar 12 UTC Spring, 2006: [Argentina]:have a good day Brazil. IM happy for you that it matters that much.
We tried to be good sports and give you a positive good bye, with a "good game" but that was not good enough for you.. sorry about your bad luck.
07 Mar 12 UTC Spring, 2006: [Argentina]:I know your not pressing ready just because you can. but you only have one option at this point.
Go ahead.. be that way.. its just a game..
07 Mar 12 UTC Spring, 2006: [Russia]:actually he has 2 choices, give up now or waste another turn
07 Mar 12 UTC Spring, 2006: [South-Africa]:I wonder what he'll pick.
07 Mar 12 UTC Spring, 2006: [Russia]:probably waste another turn
08 Mar 12 UTC Autumn, 2006: [Argentina]:Brazil, You must pay Argentina, 1 MILLION DOLLARS! OR! MEET your DEMISE!
MUUUHHAHAHAWHHAAAHAHAHAHAHAA!
09 Mar 12 UTC Autumn, 2006: [Near-East]:"A million dollars isn't that much money these days."
09 Mar 12 UTC Autumn, 2006: [South-Africa]:Not if you run the worldwide diamond industry AND the oil industry, eh Near East?
09 Mar 12 UTC Autumn, 2006: [Near-East]:Wait, I thought you had the diamond industry.
09 Mar 12 UTC Autumn, 2006: [South-Africa]:I have plenty myself, though you do have Turkey, Syria, and most notably present-day Israel, which are covered in diamonds. You should use that to your advantage.
12 Mar 12 UTC Autumn, 2006: [Libya]:Convince me why we should draw...
12 Mar 12 UTC Autumn, 2006: [South-Africa]:We've all worked to get this far; we all should get some kind of reward for it. That's my philosophy. When Oz was speaking of a draw earlier in the game, I saw room for more than one country to really break it open, but honestly we are all restricted. For example, us two are simply going to be fighting until one makes a mistake. We'll simply trade off forever.. we've both stabbed each other over and over again and haven't made any ground. It's like World War I; I don't want to wait forever.
13 Mar 12 UTC Autumn, 2006: [Oz]:Libya, you were content to draw when you thought it would get you help against SA.
13 Mar 12 UTC Autumn, 2006: [Near-East]:I do have the most centers, so I have the most to gain by not drawing, and even I am drawing, more for the sake of an ally, but that isn't a bad reason.
13 Mar 12 UTC [Argentina]:We should draw this game...
13 Mar 12 UTC [Quebec]:I'm in for the draw, too.
13 Mar 12 UTC [Oz]:I remain in favour of the proposed draw
13 Mar 12 UTC [Brazil]:"We've all worked to get this far" - you say that as though you'd been in the game since turn one. You didn't work at all, you just snagged a decent position. You personally didn't even cause one nation to be eliminated.
13 Mar 12 UTC [Argentina]:Libya and South Africa both have approached me for a draw.
13 Mar 12 UTC [Argentina]:and once I had destroyed what was left of Brazil, I obliged.
13 Mar 12 UTC [Libya]:You're all welcome, though I felt like middle east and I could have gone for a 2-way draw...
