29 May 12 UTC Autumn, 1918: Welcome back everybody, specially to the french leader, how was your vacation?
Everybody want the finish of this game to continue to the next phase so I'm asking to the Ontario's ambassador in this game to help me put an end to this game.
29 May 12 UTC Spring, 1919: Turkey, please place your draw vote. We are only waiting on you.
29 May 12 UTC Spring, 1919: And my vacation was very nice, thank you. Got a bit of sunburn, but had lots of fun down in the Caribbean.
29 May 12 UTC Spring, 1919: Now I wouldn't mind marching the Jacobite army up to liberate ol' Scotland, you know. ;-)
30 May 12 UTC Spring, 1919: England, I did that to preserve my army in Ruhr. My next destroy would be Brest, just for your knowledge. Should you continue poaching my centers after that, Ruhr shall start tapping Kiel and other Russian centers.
30 May 12 UTC Spring, 1919: 1. They're my centers.
2. The game is over. Who knows how long it will take Turkey to press the button.
3. Sure, you can disband F Bre; I'll have F Lon in place by then.
4. We still have a small hole in our line in Bur; I already am support moving Ruh-Bur, though I forgot to mention that. Please move there.
5. Considering that you are about to enter the finals, you may want to wait until I actually do something dangerous (like try to take Bre or Par or collaborate with the Turkish invader) before trying to throw the game.
30 May 12 UTC Spring, 1919: Or perhaps you were talking about me trying to 'poach' an SC after Edi. Now your comments make more sense. In that case, we still have to get an army into Bur – or maybe not; I forgot that Turkey sabotaged its own moves. I guess we don't need to do that.
30 May 12 UTC Spring, 1919: Yeah, I was talking about something after Edi. Take Edi, its fine by me.

But for that exact reason I'd prefer to stay in ruhr than move to Bur. Line is fine as it is and with Ruhr I can ensure my continued safety until whenever Turkey decides to press the trigger.
30 May 12 UTC Spring, 1919: Alright, sure thing.

Russia: I'm moving F Swe to Nwg this year.
31 May 12 UTC Spring, 1919: . . .
31 May 12 UTC Spring, 1919: I'm almost tempted to move on Turkey when he's so late like this lol
31 May 12 UTC Autumn, 1919: I wouldn't put it past Sultan to be doing that on purpose.
31 May 12 UTC Autumn, 1919: Now that it's so close, by the way, I withdrew my draw. I'll submit it again during the Gaining and Losing Units Phase (or the Retreat and Disbanding Phase, if disaster strikes).
31 May 12 UTC Autumn, 1919: France: F Eng is not support holding F Mid this phase.
31 May 12 UTC Autumn, 1919: Mr. Premier: You're the only one left to finalize, it seems. The sooner you finalize the sooner I'll submit the vote again. Sorry about that.
01 Jun 12 UTC Autumn, 1919: England, I fail to understand why you would take away the draw vote. Please resubmit it at once.

And I am destroying Brest.
01 Jun 12 UTC Autumn, 1919: I'm waving my build.

France: Re-submitted.
01 Jun 12 UTC Spring, 1920: We have now reached the end-game. I'm moving A Edi to Lvp so that Russia doesn't have to fear a convoy. F Eng is support holding Mid.

Turkey: If you don't draw the game I'm going to contact the mods so that we can have a time-limit put on this game. (I encourage France or Russia to do so instead before me; that way It'll be less work for me, ha ha.)
01 Jun 12 UTC Spring, 1920: I agree, we have reached the end. Turkey, please vote your draw vote.
01 Jun 12 UTC Spring, 1920: My tactic is agreed with the rules. If anybody of you want to finish this game can help me.
01 Jun 12 UTC Spring, 1920: Alright, well the last trading of centers has taken place. I guess we'll just have to wait this out for two more years, folks. Should take about a week if we all finalize quickly
01 Jun 12 UTC Spring, 1920: *Cough* England
02 Jun 12 UTC Spring, 1920: Except it's not two years; it's two or three years from the time we complain to a mod. Whatever, I guess we have to wait at least a phase or two before e-mailing them. I'll finalize.
03 Jun 12 UTC Spring, 1921: Hmm, the game would progress a little faster if I built another unit. Maybe I should.
03 Jun 12 UTC Spring, 1921: If you do, A London is preferable
03 Jun 12 UTC Spring, 1921: OK

By the way, can someone else send the e-mail? I'm still a little busy.
03 Jun 12 UTC Spring, 1921: I'll send it
03 Jun 12 UTC Spring, 1921: Done.
03 Jun 12 UTC Autumn, 1921: ??? What's your game, Sultan???
03 Jun 12 UTC Autumn, 1921: I don't know too.
03 Jun 12 UTC Autumn, 1921: You're going to need to give me more than that.
04 Jun 12 UTC Autumn, 1921: Mods are looking into it.
04 Jun 12 UTC Autumn, 1921: (yebellz): Turkey, please respond to our email.
04 Jun 12 UTC Spring, 1922: I'm moving the new army to Yorkshire.
04 Jun 12 UTC Spring, 1922: Bye Brest.
04 Jun 12 UTC Spring, 1922: Thanks guys for call to the administrator, now I can be quiet because I really know to I'm right with my orders. England, you can easyly finish this game, just help me and both of us will pass to the next phase.
04 Jun 12 UTC Spring, 1922: Yes, bye-bye Brest, bye-bye Marseilles, bye-bye Spain, bye-bye draw. Stop with your delusional, opportunistic excuses to prolong the game and submit your draw vote already! This is a tournament game and I have not the slightest incentive to jeopardize my standing in the tournament by launching an extremely risky assault on either France or Russia that everyone can plainly see is far more likely to back-fire for me and hand you the win than to narrow the draw as you ostensibly envision. The building of an army in Lon was done as specified by French requests. I only built a unit at all to speed up the rate at which the years must go by, as clearly stated, but if you insist on drawing out this affair for even more time because of it, so be it. At this point, BrianOfBoru, DaddyTinman or Masf, whomever you are, now that we are a full two or four years from when the game should have been drawn, I am most willing to wait however long it takes to jeer as you are excluded from the finals.
04 Jun 12 UTC Spring, 1922: Yes, Turkey it is futile, for I have shown with the placement of my army in Ruhr that further movements against be would not only net you Marseilles and Spain, but Munich as well. Please draw and speed this up.

Also, I don't know what you're talking about. The mods haven't come to a decision yet. If they had, it would be posted here in global for all to see
05 Jun 12 UTC Autumn, 1922: What the devil is he up to in the east...
05 Jun 12 UTC Autumn, 1922: He's trying to suck me in to Rumania so that he can get into Ukraine and break through the line - don't worry, I'm not biting.
05 Jun 12 UTC Autumn, 1922: Well if you take it in the fall....

Nahh, lets not trifle over that stuff when we have a perfectly good draw right now.
05 Jun 12 UTC Autumn, 1922: exactly
05 Jun 12 UTC Autumn, 1922: And I honestly don't think that there is a way to take advantage of an open Rum anyway. Even if Russia gets into it, I fail to see how it can capitalize on that gain. Russia would only be able to build in StP and then it would be out of position to maintain the current stalemate line, potentially losing War and Mos.
05 Jun 12 UTC Autumn, 1922: agreed - come on Turkey, this is getting boring. Just end it.
06 Jun 12 UTC (yebellz): Unless the situation has drastically changed after the Spring moves, this game will be force drawn before the end of the year, if not already drawn by agreement of the players.
06 Jun 12 UTC Ok guys, you won. I tried to do the best for my team and I was very close to the next phase. I'm sorry for my obstinacy but it was the only thing I can did. I hope to see you again in any future game.
06 Jun 12 UTC Sorry for my outburst at the end, Turkey.

Good game, everyone!
06 Jun 12 UTC Agreed, thoroughly enjoyed the game from this end. Well played by all. Sadly, don't think my team will make the next round, but best of luck to those of you who will be moving on. Cheers.
06 Jun 12 UTC goldfinger0303: I was right in the end; I had known who both you and Italy were. :-)
06 Jun 12 UTC Good game everyone. I enjoyed playing with you all
