24 Jun 15 UTC Spring, 1903: I'd like to make sure Austria is around. KC hasn't been online for four days. I'll unpause tonight I think.
24 Jun 15 UTC Spring, 1903: KC has been around, just not here. Not that I can blame him.
24 Jun 15 UTC Spring, 1903: Yeah. It's been unexciting to check in on this game.
27 Jun 15 UTC Spring, 1903: (goldfinger0303): Austria is without power for the next few days. Sorry I haven't gotten here sooner, but I haven't been checking the mod email as much as I should.
30 Jun 15 UTC Spring, 1903: Back
01 Jul 15 UTC Spring, 1903: Let's vote unpause, folks.
01 Jul 15 UTC Spring, 1903: (goldfinger0303): Unpaused the game
01 Jul 15 UTC Autumn, 1903: I take full credit for contacting goldfinger :P
01 Jul 15 UTC Autumn, 1903: Anyone want help a poor fellow out?
01 Jul 15 UTC Autumn, 1903: If anyone is having problems remembering what was happening...I'll help you out. There was a general consensus that Russia really should rule the world, and everybody likes Russia.
03 Jul 15 UTC Autumn, 1903: (goldfinger0303): *Cough*
18 Jul 15 UTC Autumn, 1907: Sorry for silence. Passed kidney stones. Be back a little later,
18 Jul 15 UTC Autumn, 1907: I, king of France, with land stretching all the way from Picardy to Portugal and Tyrolia, recognize that I'd be able to solo, but it would be a boring grind. As such, I decided to be merciful. Not only that, I decided you may all share in the draw that I alone deserve.

Hurry up though, it's a limited offer.
19 Jul 15 UTC Autumn, 1907: @Russia - Ouch! I can understand the silence!

@France - That's awesome.
20 Jul 15 UTC Autumn, 1907: (goldfinger0303): Kidney stones are no joke. Had them myself in March
20 Jul 15 UTC Autumn, 1907: More on kidney stones: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uiioP_bQVMA
20 Jul 15 UTC Autumn, 1907: And, like goldfinger, I had a bout myself, so I am entitled to make the joke.
21 Jul 15 UTC Autumn, 1907: Kramer's hilarious. He clearly had never had a stone. It's so much worse than that. I've had 6 bouts, the one before this one went 7 days. Would never have survived it if not for Oxycodone - would have torn my kidneys out with my bare hands.
21 Jul 15 UTC Autumn, 1907: (goldfinger0303): No, that's not a representation of it at all.

6 bouts. That's rough buddy. Though I just had my first at 23, so....not a good future to look forward to.
21 Jul 15 UTC Spring, 1908: twice at 28, twice at 38, twice at 48. Now once at 51. I probably should listen to my doctor....
23 Jul 15 UTC Autumn, 1908: I know this game has been paused for too long, but would it be too bad if we paused it until saturday? It's being very difficult for me to keep up with it this week.
23 Jul 15 UTC Autumn, 1908: (goldfinger0303): I paused it for stefan. Will unpause it friday and reset the phase to full.
24 Jul 15 UTC Autumn, 1908: I think I will have internet on my holiday destination and this isn't a high-maintenance game for me, but I am going on a holiday for the coming two weeks. If it stays on WFO-mode there's no problem of course, I probably won't be using it anyway.
24 Jul 15 UTC Autumn, 1908: Thanks!
25 Jul 15 UTC Autumn, 1908: Moderator: (goldfinger0303): Phase length reset
27 Jul 15 UTC Autumn, 1908: It would be so great if we could get this game back to a 25-hour phase. I feel like I never know when to check in.
27 Jul 15 UTC Autumn, 1908: Sorry I've had a really hectic past week or so, ordering now
28 Jul 15 UTC Autumn, 1908: Not a problem, Chaqa. No one sympathizes more than me. Let's just keep the communication at a high level so that things are a bit more predictable.
04 Aug 15 UTC Spring, 1910: Apologies. Big storm Sunday. No power, no running water, no internet. Hopefully Thursday
04 Aug 15 UTC Spring, 1910: Moderator: (goldfinger0303): There. Makes the pause a bit more official. Hopefully this get started again Thursday
08 Aug 15 UTC Spring, 1910: OK, Power came on last night. Got all the trees off the roadway. Running water, thank god! Voting unpause
13 Aug 15 UTC Autumn, 1911: Moderator: (goldfinger0303): *Cough*
17 Aug 15 UTC Autumn, 1911: Power went off again?
17 Aug 15 UTC Autumn, 1911: Sorry. End of vacation, long drive home, didn't check in.
18 Aug 15 UTC Spring, 1912: Please........
19 Aug 15 UTC Autumn, 1912: Sorry, it's tough to do things with such a short phase length.
31 Aug 15 UTC It's time to draw everyone.
31 Aug 15 UTC Ok
31 Aug 15 UTC I didn't actually mean to move to Edin anyway
31 Aug 15 UTC JB thinks I am a bad man, but I'm not going to let him get eliminated for a thinner draw. I would appreciate a draw vote from Germany and England. Many thanks for a good game.
31 Aug 15 UTC I don't think you're a bad man. I am just disappointed in you. :-)
31 Aug 15 UTC Interesting game, everyone. It did drag out and I know Turkey was asking for it to end for a long time.
31 Aug 15 UTC In general, it was a great experience playing all these games against you all. Even if in one game I didn't have the opportunity to talk at length with one specific player, I'd find out, in the next one, how he is also an interesting fellow to play against(/with?). Hope to play some of you again, one day!

Also, thanks for Chaqa for doing us this great favour of taking over England in a bad position in the last game!
31 Aug 15 UTC Thanks to all! It was most enjoyable playing with everyone here. Special thanks to Chaqa and jbalcorn for bailing us out when other players dropped.
31 Aug 15 UTC Who says I can only play gunboat :)

Although they're mostly right.
31 Aug 15 UTC Oh, yes! Jbalcorn had been along for so long I almost forgot he entered as a sub. Thank you too! You were a nice addition to our games and someone interesting to talk too!

You managed to survive FP pretty well, Chaqa. Didn't know you were from this sort of gunboat players, or else I wouldn't have attacked you; I deeply fear being left one-on-one against this kind of obsessed tacticians.
31 Aug 15 UTC Yeah, I was league D2 in 2009 and got put in as a sub in B2 that year, where I promptly got my ass kicked. So I was figuring that after a 4-year layoff, B2 would be difficult :-)
01 Sep 15 UTC Oh look, I'm in the draw!
01 Sep 15 UTC And so am I! That's 2 points for everyone except poor KC.
