Game drawn
02 Aug 14 UTC Autumn, 1904: I think once Turkey has defeated Italy she should vote draw. There is no glory in gain from players that do not fulfill their obligations to the game.
03 Aug 14 UTC Autumn, 1904: Ok turkey. It looks like it's us against the world.
03 Aug 14 UTC Autumn, 1904: Let's meet in Paris :)
04 Aug 14 UTC Spring, 1905: Its really too bad about Saint Petersburg, don't you think?
04 Aug 14 UTC Spring, 1905: England, before I lose Munich to the encircling French and Berlin to the encircling Russians, might I suggest that attack Belgium? I would be glad to support you from Holland. Please do not attack Kiel - doing so would cut any support that unit might provide and Berlin and Munich will be snapped up by the French and Russians. Germany is desperately in need of any ally and my continued (though I suspect short-term) existence will buy you time. PS: If you do intend to attack Belgium, I will need to know what unit to support. If I do not hear from you, I will assume a convoy from London and support London's attack on Belgium.

PPS: If you could see your way to allowing me to at least survive the game, I would be forever in your debt.

Cheers and good luck.
04 Aug 14 UTC Spring, 1905: I will not attack Kiel
04 Aug 14 UTC Spring, 1905: Thank you.
04 Aug 14 UTC Spring, 1905: English. Wanna join and do a 3 way split ?
04 Aug 14 UTC Spring, 1905: England, as you can see, Russia and Turkey are allied, if we don't fight together against them, they will beat us. I would like to keep peace with you
04 Aug 14 UTC Spring, 1905: May I join too?
05 Aug 14 UTC Spring, 1905: Maybe that is a good idea, England, what do you think?? England, France and Germany against Russia and Turkey?
05 Aug 14 UTC Spring, 1905: Turkey. What do you think ?
05 Aug 14 UTC Spring, 1905: Idk what options I have
05 Aug 14 UTC Spring, 1905: who should we include in our draw?
05 Aug 14 UTC Spring, 1905: btw i thought Italy quit the game?
05 Aug 14 UTC Spring, 1905: England and France, if we do have an alliance going, we ought to coordinate our moves. At your say so, the unit in Holland can begin moving southwards and eastwards.

Germany would really appreciate it if FE Denmark were to occupy the Baltic Sea in support of Berlin. Munich would be prepared to assist France against Silesia and eventually against Warsaw and or Vienna.
05 Aug 14 UTC Spring, 1905: It is up to England
05 Aug 14 UTC Spring, 1905: All, once Turkey has eliminated Italy we should vote draw then, leave Austria and Germany in to share the draw. This is the fair option.
06 Aug 14 UTC Autumn, 1905: Honestly France, you really want to lose this game don't you. Keep that up and I will allow Russia access to my eastern SCs just to spite you.
06 Aug 14 UTC Autumn, 1905: England didnt want to colaborate, indeed, he betrayed me..., so now, i will join you Germany. I wont attack you so you can defend yourself from Russia
06 Aug 14 UTC Autumn, 1905: Thank you.
06 Aug 14 UTC Autumn, 1905: Russia, can you support me into tyr from Trieste?
06 Aug 14 UTC Autumn, 1905: done...
06 Aug 14 UTC Autumn, 1905: Can anyone explain why Italy would move to North Africa other than to aid Turkey by blocking up the Med? Smacks of multi........
06 Aug 14 UTC Autumn, 1905: Italy suddenly appears now... smells fishy
07 Aug 14 UTC Autumn, 1905: the poor guy's in North Africa - what you smell is a lack of personal hygiene - there is little water to waste on washing - and don't get me started on how infrequently they brush their teeth.
07 Aug 14 UTC Autumn, 1905: I didn't know you could rejoin the game after leaving it. Wasn't Italy gone before ?
07 Aug 14 UTC Autumn, 1905: Oops, well I guess I missed a phase
10 Aug 14 UTC Autumn, 1906: England and France, I strongly suspect that I'm in big trouble. Do what you must to prevent a Turko-Russian win. If you would agree to allow me a warm corner somewhere so that I can survive the game, I would be in both your debt. Cheers,
10 Aug 14 UTC Autumn, 1906: If you relocate to Denmark I will not touch it.
10 Aug 14 UTC Autumn, 1906: Thank you - I really appreciate it - I would need England's permission - Denmark is not mine to take
10 Aug 14 UTC Autumn, 1906: Turkey has taken advantage in this game of Italy leaving. If they win the victory is totally hollow, both Turkey and Russia should vote draw in the true spirit of this game.
France I will support you in to Spain from Gascony
10 Aug 14 UTC Autumn, 1906: Some people are okay with 'hollow victories'. They focus more on the 'victory' part than the 'hollow' part.

PS: England - I will not enter Denmark until such time as you give me leave to do so.
10 Aug 14 UTC Autumn, 1906: Thanks England
11 Aug 14 UTC Autumn, 1906: Congratulations England on your successful move into Saint-Petersburg.

Might I suggest that it makes more sense for England to take Spain with her fleet in the MAO than for France to take Spain? The English Channel would simultaneously move into the MAO to fill the void. It would take support from both Portugal and Gascony. And the unit currently in Burgundy would have to move south in order to ensure that Marseilles stays French. The fleets in Spain and the MAO could then try and crack open the Western Mediterranean.

And Turkey, are you in no way beguiled by those enticingly vacant purple supply centres to your north? I know that the weather is terrible and the food sucks but the girls are fairly pretty and if you like vodka (and can get past the smell of boiled cabbage) it is an almost passable place to visit.
11 Aug 14 UTC Autumn, 1906: Russia is my ally. I have no intention of attacking him
11 Aug 14 UTC Autumn, 1906: England i though you were going to support from Portugal too!
11 Aug 14 UTC Autumn, 1906: Turkey will win this game unfairly, thanks to Italy...
11 Aug 14 UTC Autumn, 1906: lol... austria has decisions to make
11 Aug 14 UTC Autumn, 1906: Sorry France, thought you were going to support from Marseilles.
12 Aug 14 UTC Autumn, 1906: Russia, I am building a fleet in Con but it is going into the Aegean. Just so you know.
12 Aug 14 UTC Autumn, 1906: Ok France, let's try again this time support from both my units.
12 Aug 14 UTC Autumn, 1906: France - England - If France takes Spain with an army, Spain will be unable to support a move into the Western Mediterranean unless Marseilles is vacant for a fleet build. If England takes Spain and then moves into the MAO, Turkey is at worst stoppered. Something that you both might want to consider.
12 Aug 14 UTC Autumn, 1906: And by the way, had Portugal supported Gascony's attack on Spain, Turkey's unit in Spain would have retreated to Marseilles.
12 Aug 14 UTC Autumn, 1906: Ok England
12 Aug 14 UTC Autumn, 1906: No if i move to Marseilles before
13 Aug 14 UTC Autumn, 1906: I cannot believe that Turkey is not voting for a draw. It is the most shameful piece of play I have come across in this game.
13 Aug 14 UTC Autumn, 1906: Once the game finish his name will be revealed, it is as easy as spreading out in the forums that he is not a fair player
15 Aug 14 UTC I would like to thank all of you for an extremely challenging game. My appreciation to France and England for taking me under their wing. My appreciation to Russia and Turkey for agreeing to draw the game.
16 Aug 14 UTC Indeed Germany, it was fun, a shame it was blighted by a disappearing Italy.
Turkey, thank you for voting for the draw.
