28 Jul 15 UTC Autumn, 1901: Or, and just hear me out, we could do role playing! Either submit your moves or I shall molest thy ears with bad roleplaying!
01 Aug 15 UTC Autumn, 1901: Soon Russian Imperial Army will march through the streets of Vienna! >:3

Скоро Русская Императорская Армія промаршируетъ по улицамъ Вѣны! >:3
05 Aug 15 UTC Autumn, 1901: Can we get an agreement to do our utmost to speed the retreat/build phases if possible?
05 Aug 15 UTC Autumn, 1901: Sounds good to me. Just a warning to everyone, I'm going to be on holiday with limited internet access for the next week, so apologies if I'm late in replying to messages - should be able to log on at least once a day though.
08 Aug 15 UTC Autumn, 1901: GameMaster: theCato was banned: multi/meta/no reply. The time until the next phase has been extended by one phase length to give an opportunity to replace the player.
Remember to finalize your orders if you don't want to wait, so the game isn't held up unnecessarily!
09 Aug 15 UTC Autumn, 1901: Which country was he?
09 Aug 15 UTC Autumn, 1901: I have no clue.. Maybe Austria?
09 Aug 15 UTC Autumn, 1901: Im turkey now btw, the other guy left
09 Aug 15 UTC Autumn, 1901: Well, think we figured out who just got banned.
09 Aug 15 UTC Autumn, 1901: So now we have to wait another week while Austria snivels in a corner somewhere, refusing to continue because he opened poorly. Screw this worthless game. My Draw/Cancel is up and will remain til the end.
09 Aug 15 UTC Autumn, 1901: Maybe next time you should refrain from joining weeklong games
09 Aug 15 UTC Autumn, 1901: I certainly will avoid them in future if the lack of press sent in this one is any indication of how these long games normally go.
15 Aug 15 UTC Autumn, 1901: A mere 15 hours to go now lads...!
15 Aug 15 UTC Autumn, 1901: Hold steady!
20 Sep 15 UTC Spring, 1903: And it's down to the two western powers...
21 Sep 15 UTC Spring, 1903: BUT WILL THE FRENCH ARRIVE IN TIME?????
30 Sep 15 UTC Autumn, 1903: Yet. Another. NMR. Good fucking god this game is literally worse than Hitler.
06 Oct 15 UTC Autumn, 1903: Hi guys, I am the new France. Looking forward to picking up the game where my predecessor left it off !
20 Oct 15 UTC Autumn, 1904: And then there were two... only two countries in this miserable game remain free of the stench of an NMR.

Hey England, who's awesome? We're awesome.
21 Oct 15 UTC Autumn, 1904: A spectre is haunting Europe -- the spectre of commuNMRism...
22 Oct 15 UTC Autumn, 1904: Oh shut it. Ve all must heve a little revoluution vrom time to time.
27 Oct 15 UTC Autumn, 1904: Talk about a risorgimento...
28 Oct 15 UTC Autumn, 1904: Is there anyone here who doesn't think this is excruciatingly long? How about we just draw and make it end?
30 Oct 15 UTC Spring, 1905: I'm actually still quite enjoying this game and would be interested to see how it plays out. Why would you sign up for something with 7-day turns and then get annoyed at how long it takes? Isn't that the whole point?

I'll vote to draw tomorrow if everybody else still wants to - no point going against the majority view. Just wanted to register my surprise.
30 Oct 15 UTC Spring, 1905: I agree with you England !
30 Oct 15 UTC Spring, 1905: It's a maximum, but it doesn't need to happen every turn. I joined a 3-day game a while back, but almost every turn takes about 1 day, because everyone is logging in and playing. In this game, there's almost always someone who's entering no orders or leaving it until the end, so it's 7 days every single turn.
30 Oct 15 UTC Spring, 1905: The problem with this game is not the phase length per se (though I admit it is not my cup of tea and it is unlikely I shall ever join another such), it's that it has been riddled with NMRs and CDs from the beginning. The time to draw/cancel was a few months ago, in my humble opinion, but we've gone well beyond that now. If I've invested this much time already, I'm seeing it through to the bitter end, and a 6-way draw is simply unacceptable at this time.
05 Nov 15 UTC Spring, 1905: Over 6.5 days in and England and Russia are both stalling and Germany hasn't entered moves. It's just tedious.
Why have you voted cancel and not draw, Italy? Cancel is strictly worse in all ways, as one country is gone.
05 Nov 15 UTC Spring, 1905: I just forgot to 'Ready' my moves after first entering, sorry. If people are really pissed off with this game, tho, then I'm not going to stand in the way of ending it, so will set myself to Draw. It's no fun if people are just marking time & want to get it over with.
06 Nov 15 UTC Spring, 1905: Looks like Germany's gone, so it's another 6 days before this retreat phase will be over.
Come on, Italy, just end this.
17 Dec 15 UTC Autumn, 1906: Now who's drawing out every phase? Come on Turkey, step lively.
17 Dec 15 UTC Autumn, 1906: How the mighty have fallen.
17 Dec 15 UTC Autumn, 1906: I've been on a cruise and didn't want to pay for their net access. Finished up almost all my other games before I went, but this one ...
17 Dec 15 UTC Autumn, 1906: England, why don't you draw as well?
18 Dec 15 UTC Autumn, 1906: $29.95 per byte sent and/or received (plus taxes and fees and your nonrefundable convenience charge) is perfectly reasonable, you skinflint. How dare you hold up our game.
18 Dec 15 UTC Spring, 1907: I thought we already had this argument about Drawing... As long as one other player wants to keep going (i.e. Italy), I'd rather keep going as well, but I won't stand against an otherwise unanimous decision for it. Too far down the rabbit hole now... next stop, Christmas Day!
20 Dec 15 UTC Spring, 1907: Italy has a cancel vote up, which seems to indicate some dissatisfaction with the game, yet a desire not to draw. I don't get that.
21 Dec 15 UTC Spring, 1907: Well I certainly don't want to cause confusion - I'll take the cancel vote down.

It is a relic from '01 or '02 when I was dissatisfied that we had an NMR/CD every single phase, but no one else wanted to draw or cancel. (I also had fanciful hopes of leisurely weeklong chats with my neighbors about strategy etc, then found no one else was particularly talkative, but I've come to terms with the sleepy laconic kind of game that this is). Now we're past that, I'm eminently satisfied with the game.
22 Dec 15 UTC Spring, 1907: ...Now that you're winning, that is...
30 Dec 15 UTC Autumn, 1907: So much enthusiasm! Not a single player put an order in this turn until 4 days into it.
01 Jan 16 UTC Autumn, 1907: I'm sure it being Christmas/New Years had nothing at all to do with that... anyway, the pain is over for you now, Turkey. Don't be afraid, head into the light.
03 Jan 16 UTC Autumn, 1907: Nice result for you Italy. Russia could have made this game last for years, but instead compounded tactical blunders with not putting in orders. The solo should be yours soon.
03 Jan 16 UTC Autumn, 1907: By "soon" I mean months, rather than years. :)
24 Jan 16 UTC Autumn, 1908: Good to see that Russia/Italy alliance still going so well after all this time.
14 Feb 16 UTC Autumn, 1909: well, I am finished playing. The highest bidder can get my centers, as long as it is not England
24 Feb 16 UTC Well, by my calculations everyone is finished playing at the end of this year. Next time I offer a Draw/Cancel in 1901, all y'all muthafuckas BETTER TAKE IT!!!
25 Feb 16 UTC Or, when you're playing with an obstreperous prick, make sure you don't accidentally NMR and clobber him right away.
25 Feb 16 UTC Or, don't get so hung up on showing good faith that you let your potential ally solo (my mistake). I won't say 'good game', but it's certainly been an experience! Well done Italy.
25 Feb 16 UTC Funny watching the recriminations now. Russia took a massive, unbeatable lead and threw it away by being a jerk.
27 Feb 16 UTC All I know is, when Russia got to ten centers, I was in everyone's ear about how we needed to knock him back. And other players rallied against him. When I got to ten centers, I didn't see any rally to stop me. Say what you will about prickish obstreperosity, it gets the job done. Look how far it's taken that puffed-up howler monkey Donald Trump.
