24 Feb 09 UTC Spring, 1905: That is if Austria doesn't make a comeback.
24 Feb 09 UTC Spring, 1905: Austria! Hah! Even Italy has a better chance of winning.
24 Feb 09 UTC Spring, 1905: Not as much as France though, my money's on that guy.
24 Feb 09 UTC Spring, 1905: Reminds me of the old saying: "Take the money and run."
25 Feb 09 UTC Spring, 1905: Oh jesus i'm dead. Turkey! Avenge me!

27 Feb 09 UTC Autumn, 1906: gg - hope we get to play again soon.
27 Feb 09 UTC Spring, 1907: Damn, look at that southern border. You guys are paranoid.
27 Feb 09 UTC Spring, 1907: haha funny because it's true !
27 Feb 09 UTC Spring, 1907: Lol
27 Feb 09 UTC Spring, 1907: Yes back stabing is a way of life in this game :D
27 Feb 09 UTC Spring, 1907: I want Points not Winning for me 15 SC it is enough
27 Feb 09 UTC Spring, 1907: 1 SC more will bring just 1 point doesn't worth fighting for another week
27 Feb 09 UTC Spring, 1907: Any how If Russia would have liste to me to go with Plan Munich first and not Plan Berlin. This game would have finish earlier
27 Feb 09 UTC Spring, 1907: How did this illiterate moron beat me? I'm ashamed...
27 Feb 09 UTC Spring, 1907: You should be . i am french
27 Feb 09 UTC Spring, 1907: Speaking English kills you :D
27 Feb 09 UTC Spring, 1907: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mbFC7USYuNI
27 Feb 09 UTC Spring, 1907: Not only a moron, but a FRENCHMAN. You guys are to military success what George Bush was to the English language... Now i'm really ashamed.
27 Feb 09 UTC Spring, 1907: But hey, what was George Bush to military success?
27 Feb 09 UTC Spring, 1907: Liberte Egalite Fraternite !!
28 Feb 09 UTC Spring, 1907: It's actually quite weird that the french have such a bad reputation for fighting wars without success. The initial defeat to the nazis is perhaps the only thing to back up those claims.
28 Feb 09 UTC Yes weird . Considering the Americans entered in the war after URSS almost defetead Germany
28 Feb 09 UTC formi, you're american?
28 Feb 09 UTC Good god no, Australian.
28 Feb 09 UTC The French also got smacked around in WW1
28 Feb 09 UTC And the Napoleonic wars (the second half anyway)
28 Feb 09 UTC And the hundred years war.
28 Feb 09 UTC And the war of Spanish succesion.
28 Feb 09 UTC And the 1st Indochina war.
28 Feb 09 UTC So I have an excuse for losing this game, my troops were all smelly surrender monkeys.
28 Feb 09 UTC so is it about who lost eventually or who just did badly?

especially i find the mention of both ww1 and napoleonic wars contradicting. by almost any measure one would have to say that france did well in at least either one of them.

the hundred years war was more like a civil war of france, though with one of the sides being quite english. but that side then eventually lost, so...

i'm not that familiar with the spanish succession other than that the end result was not what france had sought.

and then the french weren't the only ones to lose to the vietnamise communists. i'd say that war and usa's similar try is more proof of a strong vietnamise fighting than weak fighting from the other parties involved.
28 Feb 09 UTC I hearby vote for a draw in this game.
