13 Oct 11 UTC Spring, 1901: Oh fun.
13 Oct 11 UTC Spring, 1901: If everyone clicks "ready" on their moves, we can immediately proceed to the next phase.
13 Oct 11 UTC Spring, 1901: BUT WHAT IF I'M NOT READY???
13 Oct 11 UTC Spring, 1901: Я готов
13 Oct 11 UTC Spring, 1901: (oh weird, it only supports lowercase Cyrillic?)
14 Oct 11 UTC Autumn, 1901: Bonjour European pig-dogs! You think you frighten us? Go and boil all of your bottoms, sons of a silly person! I blow my nose at all of you, so-called Dee-plu-ma-zee pleeyers. Especially you, you Desterdly Engleesh K-n-n-n-niggits! Now give up. Before I taunt you a second time.
14 Oct 11 UTC Autumn, 1901: Sultan, I couldn't help but notice your troops gathered at the borders of Sevastopol. I sincerely hope you weren't planning on moving North.
14 Oct 11 UTC Autumn, 1901: (strange...my phone reads it as uppercase, but in chrome it's lowercase.)
16 Oct 11 UTC Autumn, 1901: Let it be known that the Turks are not to be trusted. To break an agreement you yourself proposed on day 1 takes a special kind of gall. I look forward to installing your head outside the Winter Palace.
16 Oct 11 UTC Autumn, 1901: I'm flattered. Truly, I am.
16 Oct 11 UTC Autumn, 1901: And apparently my orders were the last to be readied. Note to future self: send press, WAIT, then hit ready.
17 Oct 11 UTC Autumn, 1901: Hmmm.... those aren't the orders I finalized on. I'm missing something in the interface here, I think.
17 Oct 11 UTC Autumn, 1901: It would appear that some dastardly old English gentleman is preventing me from acquiring some tulip bulbs for Augusta! This will not be forgotten!
17 Oct 11 UTC Autumn, 1901: Still not quite sure why my armies decided to go to Holland, to be quite honest. Haven't gotten a hold of this Prime Minister thing, old chap. I suspect the Queen may have overriden me; those must be some quite impressive tulip bulbs.
18 Oct 11 UTC Autumn, 1901: Waiting on you necklessone.
18 Oct 11 UTC Autumn, 1901: Sorry, I haven't had time until now to go through things. I'll hold up until no later than noon tomorrow so I get a chance to get some messages out; last season I sent press and the turn ended immediately.
18 Oct 11 UTC Autumn, 1901: Actually, I'm a liar (as Russia can attest). Processing now.
18 Oct 11 UTC Spring, 1902: Dear France: You appear to be about to commit one of the classic blunders...
18 Oct 11 UTC Spring, 1902: Its what we Frenchies do best
18 Oct 11 UTC Spring, 1902: Never trust a Sicilian when death is on the line?
18 Oct 11 UTC Spring, 1902: Close...
21 Oct 11 UTC Autumn, 1902: I believe "Never start a land war in Asia" is appropriate.
21 Oct 11 UTC Autumn, 1902: Are we're seeing a Turkey/Germany/Italy alliance?
21 Oct 11 UTC Autumn, 1902: You're actually seeing a cleverly disguised Turkey/Austria alliance. But you didn't hear it from me.
24 Oct 11 UTC Autumn, 1903: Russia, you're a fool to welcome Turkey into your homeland.

With France so strong in the Mediterranean, the ONLY way Turkey can win is by taking you out.
26 Oct 11 UTC Spring, 1904: So necklessone, let me get this straight: your master plan was to give up control of Rum to Russia, so that he would have two more SCs than you?

This is why you broke your alliance with me?

And here I thought dferrantino was the dumbass for letting you into Ukr ...
26 Oct 11 UTC Spring, 1904: Yep, that sounds about right. Herp derp.
27 Oct 11 UTC Spring, 1904: Sorry all, Haven't been able to strategize yet - I got hit in the same layoffs as 7z7. I'll get my turn in today.
27 Oct 11 UTC Spring, 1904: Was wondering about that - bleagh - that really sucks for both of ya. Take your time - priorities and all that.
27 Oct 11 UTC Spring, 1904: Really sorry to hear that. Who do you guys work for?
27 Oct 11 UTC Spring, 1904: Used to be for Avid (www.avid.com) - I was tech support for large-scale shared storage products.
29 Oct 11 UTC Spring, 1904: I see that the Russians seem to have no concept of honor in keeping a pact for even one full year. Your violation of our agreement so quickly saddens me greatly.
29 Oct 11 UTC Spring, 1904: I cannot apologize. Our alliance with the Germans has stood the test of time. Besides, the Empress is German, and we wouldn't want to upset her would we?
02 Nov 11 UTC Autumn, 1904: Can you get from North Africa to Spain by land?
02 Nov 11 UTC Autumn, 1904: Theoretically, the rules state that you're not supposed to be able to. That said, in a search of the interwebs, that seems to be bugged more often than not in online play. Since this site's forum doesn't have a search feature, can't tell whether it's working correctly here or not.
02 Nov 11 UTC Autumn, 1904: Nope, you need a convoy. Is the fleet in Western Med feeling generous?
02 Nov 11 UTC Autumn, 1904: In that case, CONQUER ALL THE ITALIES.
03 Nov 11 UTC Spring, 1905: Ha ha ha ha! Hahaha... urk.
06 Nov 11 UTC Autumn, 1905: Mr. Turkey I'm shocked that you would break our alliance and move into the Ionian Sea. You know this means I'm going to have to abandon our plan to divide up Russia don't you?
06 Nov 11 UTC Autumn, 1905: D: Not my cunning plan to betray Russia with the one country that's the least useful as an ally against him!
06 Nov 11 UTC Autumn, 1905: That's it, I'm abandoning the entire Turko-French secret pact of 1904. You can fight your own Asian land wars.
06 Nov 11 UTC Autumn, 1905: Great, now you've probably been left with no choice but to support Austria against my attack...

Wait, how did anything change? :P
10 Nov 11 UTC Autumn, 1906: I AM INVINCIBLE!
..
...
....
All right, we'll call it a draw.
10 Nov 11 UTC Autumn, 1906: For the reference, I will let you keep North Africa.
15 Nov 11 UTC Spring, 1907: Sorry I don't have time to play any more so if someone could eliminate me this turn that would be great. Thanks.
18 Nov 11 UTC Spring, 1907: Sorry guys, crunchtime for me yesterday and today. Will calculate my moves tomorrow. Apologies for the wait.
19 Nov 11 UTC Spring, 1907: No problem; Russia is still waiting as well. I just poked you on TWG because I didn't want you to get whatever penalty this site uses when no moves are received.
02 Dec 11 UTC Autumn, 1910: Alright, Britain, its time for you to decide if you want to be an honest loser or take your chance at a win.
05 Dec 11 UTC Congratulations, CAD. And good game, everyone.
05 Dec 11 UTC Congratulations DOM, you earned more than half the victory by being the decisive force in the North. My part was just luck. Good game all
