25 Apr 19 UTC Autumn, 2004: You are forgetting that you have already 26 centers...7 to go. I will not move against you unless you stab Spain and go for the solo, but at the same time I will keep my frontiers defended the best I can.
As you can see I have not made a single offensive move. Btw, wich armies should I move away? All my units are in defensive positions.
25 Apr 19 UTC Autumn, 2004: In my opinion, Spain is doing a bad job leaving his centers unprotected.
25 Apr 19 UTC Autumn, 2004: (I hope to be wrong)
25 Apr 19 UTC Autumn, 2004: Alright then.
25 Apr 19 UTC Autumn, 2004: Will you support me into Belgium?
25 Apr 19 UTC Autumn, 2004: Maybe the one in Sil or Kha? I only have one army in my original home centres.
25 Apr 19 UTC Autumn, 2004: Or at least attack Holland and the North Sea to cut his support.
25 Apr 19 UTC Autumn, 2004: To be honest I'm getting tired of all this. Can we please just finish off Britain and get this over with?
25 Apr 19 UTC Autumn, 2004: @Turkey Yes, mate. I'm hitting Holland.
After all this time working together, be patience a little more, will you?
25 Apr 19 UTC Autumn, 2004: Clever girl.

Well played Britain, I didn't think you'd actually move to Clyde.
25 Apr 19 UTC Autumn, 2004: I've been patient and calmly arguing every time why you there is no reason why you have to worry about me, now I'm just getting tired of it.
25 Apr 19 UTC Autumn, 2004: ...every time why there...*
25 Apr 19 UTC Autumn, 2004: 27/33 Turkey, it just seems like you are going to solo at the last moment, and the only thing preventing you from soloing immediately is Russia's preparations
25 Apr 19 UTC Autumn, 2004: Which is probably why you are waiting until you know you can win it in a year
25 Apr 19 UTC Autumn, 2004: Hence the reason you decided to take Lyon and Paris from Spain and gave him Marseilles and Monaco. You can kill Marseilles and Monaco with ships, not Paris and Lyon. And oh look all the ships...
25 Apr 19 UTC Autumn, 2004: :shrugs: just pointing out the movements on the board, your words literally mean nothing lol
25 Apr 19 UTC Autumn, 2004: He's the one who accepted the deal. I've left every move I make pretty much up to my allies.
25 Apr 19 UTC Autumn, 2004: Why did you view my move back into Hungary, a SC, as aggressive Russia?
25 Apr 19 UTC Autumn, 2004: I tried to vacate it as a sign of peace but then you move all these armies around getting closer... and what are those armies at Volga and Caucasus doing?
25 Apr 19 UTC Autumn, 2004: Actually if you go back in the order history, those were just a natural progression for his armies, that's where the fight was happening
25 Apr 19 UTC Autumn, 2004: I know that. I've been moving on while he has left them there.
25 Apr 19 UTC Autumn, 2004: He moved into Slo last turn after I moved into Hungary... also a territory that I fought to take over.
25 Apr 19 UTC Autumn, 2004: Ever since you left Hungary you kept trying to go back lol, once again your words mean nothing, but its not up for me to decide, thats for Russia to prepare
25 Apr 19 UTC Autumn, 2004: Did you not know you can defend a territory with two units? Bouncing myself in Hungary kept me out of it while also ensuring that he didn't move in.
25 Apr 19 UTC Autumn, 2004: You can defend three territories with two units.
25 Apr 19 UTC Autumn, 2004: Spain has used that tactic earlier.
25 Apr 19 UTC Autumn, 2004: It wasn't a error on my part.
25 Apr 19 UTC Autumn, 2004: So you are allowed to do your best to try and ruin my reputation, and then when I try and defend it then you say my words mean nothing? I could've won ten times over by now.
26 Apr 19 UTC Autumn, 2004: @Turkey Do not blame others about your lack of patience. As Poland said, you could have been preparing the solo by waiting the perfect moment to give your final moves while others ( me ) trust you 100%.
I repeat: I'm NOT doing any offensive move against you, just trying to protect me against your solo. That's very understandable, isn't it?
I have already been in this situation in other games, and due to my stupid trust I have been defeated.
Go for the draw or go for the solo, but please do not put over the table excuses like "I feel threatened" or things like that, because I am 100% up for the draw, I have always been.
26 Apr 19 UTC Spring, 2005: By the way...my fleet at Rostov will hold...
26 Apr 19 UTC Spring, 2005: this is anonymous game. What reputation is Turkey talking about?
26 Apr 19 UTC Spring, 2005: Any sensible player as Turkey now can and should go solo now. Nothing can stop turkey now
26 Apr 19 UTC Spring, 2005: We can make this go by faster if everyone makes sure to hit Ready when moves are put in. Or Britain could just stop fighting and let us finish. Russia, can you support N.Atl to Clyde?

Let's get the job done so we can wrap it up!
26 Apr 19 UTC Spring, 2005: Support saved
26 Apr 19 UTC Autumn, 2005: Thanks, successfully faked out Britain :)
26 Apr 19 UTC Autumn, 2005: Russia I sincerely hope you're not moving to attack Turkey. Moving to Moldavia, Azerbaijan and Kazakhstan is pretty aggressive.
26 Apr 19 UTC Autumn, 2005: @Spain I am not trying to take any turkish center. I am just trying to be prepared in case Turkey stabs you. I am affraid my moves won't be useful if he decides to go for the solo. I should make a preventive attack, but I won't.
26 Apr 19 UTC Autumn, 2005: @Russia please do. Take Rumania temporarily (and block my support by bumping Hungary) until Spain can build troops to defend his territory. I feel like a vampire...
26 Apr 19 UTC Autumn, 2005: It's so satisfying to click on where I want to move and then see the huge list of convoy possibilities.
26 Apr 19 UTC Autumn, 2005: Oh, oops. LOL.
26 Apr 19 UTC Autumn, 2005: Russia, don't take Rumania.
26 Apr 19 UTC Autumn, 2005: Holy cow, I get to build TWO units!! I haven't built that much in over a decade!
27 Apr 19 UTC Autumn, 2005: Good job spain : )
27 Apr 19 UTC Spring, 2006: Ok, Spain, finish off England and we can draw if Turkey does agree.
28 Apr 19 UTC Awesome, Draw vote is in!
28 Apr 19 UTC mine too
