21 Aug 13 UTC Spring, 1995: Russia, you're the only one with a retreat this turn if you want to finalize.
21 Aug 13 UTC Autumn, 1995: hahaha sorry about that chaps, defiantly don't want to be that guy.
27 Aug 13 UTC Autumn, 1996: omg i can't believe that worked...
01 Sep 13 UTC Autumn, 1997: GameMaster: EchoesOfShadows was banned: multi. 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!
01 Sep 13 UTC Autumn, 1997: France the cheater only worked with Italy?:o haha
01 Sep 13 UTC Spring, 1998: To all friends who suffered brutal aggression by France &Italian alliance, it is time to for us, especially Germany,Spain and England to band together and push the French&Italians back to the Alps.
01 Sep 13 UTC Spring, 1998: Even to Poland, although we at conflict right now, but I am willing to work together against ItAly. Although he helped you to regain Krakow but let not forget he took Czech from you,and for him to get to me he would need to occupy you first.:)
01 Sep 13 UTC Spring, 1998: France was a multi? That's news to me. I hate cheaters, though my assumption is that he was a multi-account person in another game, or we'd have other people banned.
01 Sep 13 UTC Spring, 1998: Oh, and I'll be on vacation September 7th-14th, and I won't have internet access, so I'll be asking for a pause at the end of this week.
09 Sep 13 UTC Spring, 2000: GameMaster: JankiX was banned: multi. The time until the next phase has been extended by one phase length to give an opportunity to replace the player.

09 Sep 13 UTC Spring, 2000: omg -.-
09 Sep 13 UTC Spring, 2000: Another one? This is getting irritating.
09 Sep 13 UTC Spring, 2000: I'm a good player.
09 Sep 13 UTC Spring, 2000: At least none of the rest of us cheat. Those two apparently were cheating in a different game (and it's two different people)
10 Sep 13 UTC Spring, 2000: Is Italy stabbing Egypt with fleet @Tunisia? :0
10 Sep 13 UTC Spring, 2000: You mean like my last fleet in Tunisia? Or the fleet I built in Morocco?
10 Sep 13 UTC Spring, 2000: Guess Tunisia ? Not sure how you stab with Moroccan fleet
10 Sep 13 UTC Spring, 2000: Trying sneak into Russia via Northern seas :p ?
10 Sep 13 UTC Spring, 2000: Yeah, you caught me at it.
10 Sep 13 UTC Autumn, 2000: Sooo hard to find a honest player here, unlucky Turkey was the best ally : (
11 Sep 13 UTC Autumn, 2000: I don't understand the point in cheating in a wargame. I mean good heavens, it's a game. The whole point is to fight it out within the rules. 8) Lord knows I've gotten slaughtered in enough games over the years.
11 Sep 13 UTC Autumn, 2000: I'm sorry that I'm loyal Ukraine xD its the way I play I stick with my starting alliance.
11 Sep 13 UTC Autumn, 2000: May I propose a three draw?
I think I did enough to deserve a draw, as I managed to defeat two countries without any help,
while Italy and Egypted combined together to defeat Turkey.
11 Sep 13 UTC Autumn, 2000: Egypt it is not the Diplomacy spirit to stay with ally from beginning of the game, this whole gAme is about stabbing. What is the point of playing this game if you just Gonna let Italy win.
11 Sep 13 UTC Autumn, 2000: I trust italys word thats how I play because I don't play this game to stab i play because the tactics of unit movement and the fun of going through with a partner or two and the feeling of being able to win with them :) i really don't care for stabbing...
11 Sep 13 UTC Autumn, 2000: Not really stabbing, it is a tactical switch hahah,
11 Sep 13 UTC Autumn, 2000: Not really stabbing, it is a tactical switch hahah,
11 Sep 13 UTC Autumn, 2000: xD I hate being stabbed after a long good alliance :) so me doing it to others will just make that occurrence more common :P
12 Sep 13 UTC Autumn, 2000: That's what Diplomacy is about!! Stabbing!!
12 Sep 13 UTC Autumn, 2000: I believe its about trying to get someone to work with you over the other person and build up enough trust that you would be able to move units from your shared boarder so you would now gain an advantage over others that don't do that
12 Sep 13 UTC Autumn, 2000: That's how I play. Others stab on a dime. Endless stabbing CAN work, but if two or more cooperative players stumble across each other, they generally end up with a major advantage.
13 Sep 13 UTC Spring, 2001: Worth a try anyway, you guys are not fun hahahaha
13 Sep 13 UTC Spring, 2001: Quote "I believe its about trying to get someone to work with you over the other person " by Italy, if you already determined to stick with one ally for the whole game, what you said it is bit contradicting youself? XD
13 Sep 13 UTC Spring, 2001: Is spain a neutral country? why don't you join the grand alliance and fight off the Pizza &Pastas and the Kebabs invasion.
13 Sep 13 UTC Spring, 2001: spain are trying to survive. can somebody please backstab itlay?
14 Sep 13 UTC Autumn, 2001: Heh. I was wondering if you'd notice the escape route for my army in Warsaw...
14 Sep 13 UTC Autumn, 2001: Did not realise Lit is connected to Warsaw.
Game over.
14 Sep 13 UTC Autumn, 2001: Yeah, you needed to do Baltic-Lithuania to block that retreat, but I had a feeling that you might not have noticed the connection between Warsaw and Lithuania. So I left the army there on purpose, just to see if I'd get to retreat behind your lines. You can still corner and destroy that army, but only at the price of pulling units off of my eastern front, which was the real point of it.
14 Sep 13 UTC Autumn, 2001: propose draw between, Germany, Ukraine, and Italy, Egypt,
Well played.
14 Sep 13 UTC Autumn, 2001: draw request declined.
14 Sep 13 UTC Autumn, 2001: I will not agree to a draw. My intentions are to wipe out every remaining power except my ally in Egypt. Germany's the only person who didn't come after me, so he's the only other one I'd consider not hammering, but I'd just assume wipe everyone other than Egypt out at this point.
15 Sep 13 UTC Spring, 2002: The only person did not come after you? Lets refresh yr memory you attacked my Romania first, and I did not make any aggression only defending.
Happy to fight til the end unless I got bored and forge to put orders in haha
15 Sep 13 UTC Spring, 2002: *forget
15 Sep 13 UTC Spring, 2002: Pfft. You were supporting Turkey against me before I attacked; that's what triggered the assault because I was tired of it. I ignored it a few times then decided I'd had enough and did something about it. Thus "you came after me" if only by directly supporting people I was at war with.
15 Sep 13 UTC Spring, 2002: I would be happy about a "survive". Mayby this would work with your plans :-)
15 Sep 13 UTC Spring, 2002: lol, if you look at previous orders, no such supporting Turkey against you can be found, only support hold,
get your facts right, why you need excuses, you invaded then you invaded, stop being a bitch about it haha.
16 Sep 13 UTC Spring, 2002: Ukraine, you were supporting Turkey against me.

Spring 1995 at Serbia.
Autumn 1995 at Serbia
Autumn 1996 at Bulgaria.

I attacked you in Rumania in 1997 after the third incident. It's not a question of "bitching" it's simply the reason that I'm going to make a point of wiping you off of the map before the game ends.
16 Sep 13 UTC Autumn, 2002: Make a point, lol
16 Sep 13 UTC Autumn, 2002: Arggghh this sucks Warsaw meant to go to Lit.
Thanks Germany :)
