13 Mar 16 UTC Spring, 1901: Good luck to all!
14 Mar 16 UTC Spring, 1901: Good luck!
14 Mar 16 UTC Spring, 1901: Bon journo
16 Mar 16 UTC Spring, 1902: My apologies for the NMR last turn, that's unlike me.
18 Mar 16 UTC Autumn, 1902: Sorry, I thought I had until 8 am. I was wrong.
21 Mar 16 UTC Spring, 1903: New Russia here, sorry, it seems my predecessor NMR'ed in a crucial time?
30 Mar 16 UTC Spring, 1905: Hey English, are you not playing? Don't destroy the game by giving silly hold orders
31 Mar 16 UTC Spring, 1905: So weird, it looks like it didn't take my orders. So sorry guys, that was not intentional at all and not what my phone showed when I submitted my orders. I was not expecting this result at all.
31 Mar 16 UTC Autumn, 1905: I must have done something wrong with my submission.
31 Mar 16 UTC Autumn, 1905: I had the same problem a couple turns ago. I think it was a cache issue on my end though.
03 Apr 16 UTC Spring, 1906: Just confirm England.
04 Apr 16 UTC Autumn, 1906: Just confirm Germany.
16 Apr 16 UTC Autumn, 1910: Looks to me like there will be no Italian solo and Turkey and Germany are balanced enough that if either make a play for the solo the other two powers will likely ally to stop it. Go ahead and draw now or play things out a little longer to see if the SoS scores change any?
16 Apr 16 UTC Spring, 1911: I can stalemate Turkey in the Ionian and at Venice as long as Germany/England do not force me to disband anymore critical pieces.
17 Apr 16 UTC Spring, 1911: G/E can stalemate Turkey at either MOS/WAR or StP/LIV, Italy can stalemate Turkey at ION. Italy is stalemated in the Atlantic. Germany and I cannot attack each other without breaking both of our stalemates. This game is basically locked up. Are you guys sure you want to keep playing?
18 Apr 16 UTC Autumn, 1911: I am fine drawing.
18 Apr 16 UTC Autumn, 1911: I'm up for it.
18 Apr 16 UTC Autumn, 1911: My vote in favor of it is in already.
18 Apr 16 UTC Autumn, 1911: I am in as well, looks like we are waiting on England.
18 Apr 16 UTC Autumn, 1911: I think England has already voted. We might be waiting on Turkey.
18 Apr 16 UTC Autumn, 1911: T may want to get credit for Trieste before he votes.
18 Apr 16 UTC Autumn, 1911: I already voted yes.
21 Apr 16 UTC I've voted draw.
21 Apr 16 UTC I'm still voting draw
21 Apr 16 UTC Looks like Germany is the only one not voting for draw.
21 Apr 16 UTC Good game all!
21 Apr 16 UTC Yay! This was a fun one.
21 Apr 16 UTC Probably the best game I have played being rather new to the game!
21 Apr 16 UTC This was probably a great learning game for you. You saw stabs. You saw the importance of stalemate lines.

The only thing I would say is from my observation that you shouldn't take anything that happens personally. Don't cut off communications. It is all for fun.

I have been playing FTF tournaments for a while, and some of my best friends are people who have knifed the shit out of me ... in fact, I respect anyone who can execute a good stab. It is part of the game.

The SOS system encourages fluid alliances. At least that is the book on it.
21 Apr 16 UTC I do feel bad for Austria though. That was a brutal stab.
21 Apr 16 UTC That was quite something. Don't think I've seen anyone crumple that fast before.

Replacement Russia was not bad at all, the influence they had on the game coming in with two territories was impressive.
21 Apr 16 UTC I was trying as hard as possible to get him out. He started singing, "Italian solo," when I was at 8 centers.
21 Apr 16 UTC Thanks, but I don't understand how Austria could crumble so fast. I thought at the time that your stab on me was unwise, but given how Austria vaporized it seems you made the right decision
21 Apr 16 UTC The quick destruction of Austria was only possible because of Turkish help. But it definitely put the fear of God into everyone on the board so I learned something new. Don't execute stabs so well, lol.
21 Apr 16 UTC Sorry, I'm rambling. I mean how you kicked Italy out of "Austria". Mixing things up, perhaps too many games :)
21 Apr 16 UTC In hindsight, I probably should have accepted your move to Rumania. It would have slowed Turkey down significantly. OTH, how long would you have cooperated with me?
21 Apr 16 UTC I think I never lied to any of you or turkey. I thought turkey would want to attack Austria with me but then he stabbed and took sev. I think I managed to survive well up to that point and I didn't see why he stabbed Mr
21 Apr 16 UTC Me
21 Apr 16 UTC I guess I figure if someone stabs, then its pointless to comunicate for a while lol it wasnt taken personally.
21 Apr 16 UTC Problem was that my border was either Russia or Italy, and I didn't think it would be viable to just sit around at peace with both. Time was not yet right to stab Italy, so went for Russia.
