19 Jun 20 UTC Autumn, 1902: Literally a name to send one running for the hills.
19 Jun 20 UTC Autumn, 1902: PS: No fleet in Brest or London, French fleet in the Med, England in St Petersburg.
Run for the hills, Italy and Germany, because there's a Tsunami coming.
19 Jun 20 UTC Autumn, 1902: I think I liked cordial agreement more. Just feels right, ya know?
19 Jun 20 UTC Autumn, 1902: Run for the hills, Italy and Germany. England and France have a cordial agreement!
19 Jun 20 UTC Autumn, 1902: Because, unlike Turkey and Russia, this is just an agreement not to murder each other.
19 Jun 20 UTC Autumn, 1902: Truth
20 Jun 20 UTC Autumn, 1902: A shame that Russia may never get the chance to overthrow the Tsar.
20 Jun 20 UTC Autumn, 1902: I don't understand why you're being such a child Austria. "It's the blind trust that you showed each other" really? We do establish alliances in this game so he had to choose either me or you. He convinced me that he is going for north so I decided to ally up and attack you. If your alliance offer isn't accepted, it's not a blind trust, it doesn't have to be. It would be so easy to accuse you and Italy too, of blind trust.
20 Jun 20 UTC Autumn, 1902: Just looking at the map, Italy and Austria would have to have quite a bit of trust.
20 Jun 20 UTC Autumn, 1902: But perhaps people, especially Austria, are just using the threat of a Juggernaut as an excuse to perform a coordinated assault on Russia, Austria's foremost opponent. I wouldn't call that childish; I'd call it ingenious.
20 Jun 20 UTC Autumn, 1902: Praise Austria for their masterful manipulation! Bravo!
20 Jun 20 UTC Autumn, 1902: Fear the juggernaut!
20 Jun 20 UTC Autumn, 1902: Thanks Italy
20 Jun 20 UTC Autumn, 1902: Thanks, i like to move the conversation forward. It felt like it would decent a bit.
20 Jun 20 UTC Autumn, 1902: Good idea
22 Jun 20 UTC Autumn, 1903: And then everyone died
23 Jun 20 UTC Autumn, 1903: Juggernaut?
23 Jun 20 UTC Spring, 1904: Yeah
24 Jun 20 UTC Spring, 1904: I think the Juggernaut is dead now, because there are three different powers occupying the East
24 Jun 20 UTC Spring, 1904: And I have the sneaking suspicion that Austria is not allied with Turkey...
24 Jun 20 UTC Spring, 1904: Whoa, thanks. I was almost fooled
24 Jun 20 UTC Spring, 1904: Hahaha
27 Jun 20 UTC Autumn, 1904: Thank you all for the great game.
27 Jun 20 UTC Autumn, 1904: Right on Russia, you too.
27 Jun 20 UTC Autumn, 1904: Au revoir monsieur
27 Jun 20 UTC Autumn, 1904: I'm on my way to create a game named "Unpleasant Classic - Unsuccess". This one didn't work well for me.
28 Jun 20 UTC Autumn, 1904: You cannot escape me
28 Jun 20 UTC Spring, 1905: That name filled faster than the positive counterpart
29 Jun 20 UTC Autumn, 1905: Upps, I acidentally set the game to 1 hours/phase and gave a CD
29 Jun 20 UTC Autumn, 1905: Jikes 1 hour phases should not exist.
30 Jun 20 UTC Autumn, 1905: I just want to state publicly that after consideration, I'm on board with a 4 way draw. Austria is not going to roll on Italy, and I don't expect England is going to roll on France.

Once the retreats and builds have cleared, Austria is voting draw.
30 Jun 20 UTC Autumn, 1905: Hey Italy, it wasn't entirely by the book, but does this count as having successfully pull off a Key Lepanto? That was my informal victory condition for this game.
30 Jun 20 UTC Autumn, 1905: I think that the level of trust you have shown me in 1901 counts. The fact that France moved on me in 1902 made it bit slower, but in the end i think it counts :-)
30 Jun 20 UTC Autumn, 1905: I said ready to make things faster. Good game
30 Jun 20 UTC Autumn, 1905: Thanks Turkey. I enjoyed our corner of the game.
30 Jun 20 UTC Autumn, 1905: You won't enjoy it as much the next time :)
30 Jun 20 UTC Autumn, 1905: I was lucky in my ally.
30 Jun 20 UTC Autumn, 1905: Yes it's an interesting alliance I haven't seen Italy moving to Serbia from Trieste. Was that agreed, or did you make the dea after he moved there ?
30 Jun 20 UTC Autumn, 1905: It was agreed right at the beginning. Its called the key lepanto and is used to make sure there are a lot of armies directly at the Balkans.

The problem is that it requires a crazy amount of trust from Austria since he gets to have all the risks of I decide to stay in trieste or if Turkey bounces the move to serbia in fall of 1901. (Here there was a empty galicia in that period which is kinda rare, so Austria could support me in).

I believe Austria agreed to this play because he wanted to try and thought he wouldnt get to convince an austrian player to do it in a million years :-)
30 Jun 20 UTC Autumn, 1905: The all encompassing fear of a juggernaut sure helpt!
30 Jun 20 UTC Autumn, 1905: Gripe gripe grumble grumble
30 Jun 20 UTC Autumn, 1905: Awesome, also very dangerous from his side. Did you ever consider keeping Trieste :D
30 Jun 20 UTC Autumn, 1905: Not really, i was too excited to get to try this line. I didnt want to throw it all away after one move.
30 Jun 20 UTC Autumn, 1905: "Run! It's the Juggernaut," is just another way of saying "let's all attack Russia"
01 Jul 20 UTC Yay!
