30 May 15 UTC Spring, 1904: and points are a benefit?
30 May 15 UTC Spring, 1904: For the sake of the tournament scorecard I would imagine that the difference between scoring a duck and scoring at least some points is significant. Leaving with nothing isn't a huge amount of fun.
30 May 15 UTC Spring, 1904: If we do a draw we all get some points, which could be the difference between moving on to the next round and not, depending on how everyone did/is doing in their first games.
30 May 15 UTC Spring, 1904: Where are you, Austria?

Personally, looking at how my first game is going I don't really want a draw just yet.
30 May 15 UTC Spring, 1904: If he's in a 3 hour meeting on a Saturday he needs a new job ;)
30 May 15 UTC Spring, 1904: Did we have a wait mode last time?
30 May 15 UTC Spring, 1904: Austria? Austriaaaaaaaaaaaa?
30 May 15 UTC Autumn, 1904: (ghug): Be sure to get your orders in on time, guys.
01 Jun 15 UTC Autumn, 1904: (ghug): I've contacted our offenders.
01 Jun 15 UTC Autumn, 1904: Cheers, ghug
01 Jun 15 UTC Autumn, 1904: E tu, France?
01 Jun 15 UTC Autumn, 1904: Back, terribly sorry guys! Had an unexpected trip with no internet connection
06 Jun 15 UTC Autumn, 1905: a wild SOLORUN has been spotted!
06 Jun 15 UTC Autumn, 1905: THE NEW RUSSIAN INVENTION TO FEED STARVING SOLDIERS - TSAR NICHOLAS' SOUP - A POTENT MIX OF VODKA AND FERMENTED POTATOES, BOILED TO A GUMMY BLOB
06 Jun 15 UTC Autumn, 1905: ALSO SURPRISINGLY FLAMMABLE, THE RUSSIAN ARMY IS CONSIDERING DROPPING A VODKA-BOMB ON PARIS
07 Jun 15 UTC Autumn, 1905: At least it doesn't contain cabbage.
09 Jun 15 UTC Autumn, 1905: *drops vodka-bomb on Austria*
11 Jun 15 UTC Spring, 1906: Wow... He really did go to Silesia...

The man's an idiot!
11 Jun 15 UTC Spring, 1906: Or a genius beyond my understanding...
11 Jun 15 UTC Spring, 1906: You know you're on global right?
11 Jun 15 UTC Spring, 1906: Indeedy. I don't think I've revealed any state secrets. Largely because I no longer have any :p.
14 Jun 15 UTC Autumn, 1906: Is that two straight NMRs for the Archduke?
14 Jun 15 UTC Autumn, 1906: It seems.
14 Jun 15 UTC Autumn, 1906: perhaps he was murdered?
14 Jun 15 UTC Autumn, 1906: Turkey, I thought I told you to keep those Serbs under control! /s
14 Jun 15 UTC Autumn, 1906: I'll admit my "genius beyond understanding" theory is perhaps looking a tad less likely, but it is not yet ruled out completely.
14 Jun 15 UTC Autumn, 1906: Maybe he is a genius and intends to bore us to death
15 Jun 15 UTC Autumn, 1906: Sorry for the delay
15 Jun 15 UTC Autumn, 1906: Thanks for the game everyone. It's a shame to be gone so early, but you know, you win some and you lose some. Good lucky trying to stop France!
15 Jun 15 UTC Autumn, 1906: GG Austria and Germany
15 Jun 15 UTC Autumn, 1906: GG Germany. Frankly I don't know why Austria bothered signing up in the first place.
15 Jun 15 UTC Autumn, 1906: I wonder if ghug or one of the other mods could enter his disband for him.

God damned pathetic waste of space. I have had various disagreements with various players in this game, but all except Austria have earned my respect. It's a damned shame he couldn't have been thrown out of the tournament in disgrace as the rules intended.
16 Jun 15 UTC Spring, 1907: Chill, it's a game...I'm sorry for all the delays I caused and wish you all some good next rounds!
17 Jun 15 UTC Spring, 1907: Oops sorry

One sec
23 Jun 15 UTC Spring, 1908: In a completely unrelated matter, a friend of mine is growing tomtatoes. Apparently these are real things...
23 Jun 15 UTC Spring, 1908: ...mind blown.
25 Jun 15 UTC Spring, 1908: Could I get a pause as my computers hard disk has abruptly died?
25 Jun 15 UTC Spring, 1908: (A_Tin_Can): Paused by request. Let us know at webdipmod@gmail.com if this is a problem for anyone.
26 Jun 15 UTC Spring, 1908: I should be good to go now
27 Jun 15 UTC Spring, 1908: (ghug): Game unpaused.
01 Jul 15 UTC Spring, 1909: As I was walking down the road
Towards a cyber cafe oh
A Frenchman he came up to me
Said you'd profit from a two-way oh
For both we are in need of points
Come read my proclamation oh
A life in Venice for you then
Would be a fine vacation oh

That may be so says I to him
But tell me friend so dearie-oh
If I had a knife stuck in my back
Would I look fine and cheerie oh
For you'd have me fight the greens until
I'm struck by one of the Frenchies oh
It may be warm in Venice
But it's draughty in the trenches oh

The Frenchman smiled and winked his eye
His smile was most provoking oh
He twiddled and twirled his wee mustache
Says he, I know you're joking oh
Try Moscow, it's so warm and high
The wind you won't feel blowing oh
Well I winked at a cailin passing by
Says I, what if it's snowing oh

Come rain or hail or wind or snow
I will not stab an ally oh
Let fighting in new games to be done
Let's draw this and we all shall go
A five-way here will suit me fine
Reward to those who started oh
I saluted the French a very good night
And there and then we parted oh
02 Jul 15 UTC Spring, 1909: Touching piece of poetry. I encourage you to vote draw, France.
03 Jul 15 UTC Autumn, 1909: I am qualifying with this result and own the tiebreaker. So yes, I could. Does not mean I will though.
03 Jul 15 UTC Autumn, 1909: Congrats on your impending qualification
03 Jul 15 UTC Autumn, 1909: Although, and forgive for being a bit dim, I have no idea what "own the tiebreaker" means.
03 Jul 15 UTC Spring, 1910: SC count is really high I guess. So in case I were to tie with you and both our results are the same, I would be ranked higher. Not even sure if rankings matter at all though. I just wanted to make it clear to you that I do not need to cut people out of the draw like you seem to think.
03 Jul 15 UTC Spring, 1910: Yeah, you'd pick up the most points out of all of us.Just shy of 100 points if you draw now. A few over if you choose to eliminate England first.

I believe that the score determines the seeding for round 2, but I don't really consider the seeding to be important.

Lets draw and take a break :)
05 Jul 15 UTC Autumn, 1910: GG England - time to draw
06 Jul 15 UTC well played
06 Jul 15 UTC Fun game, all :)
