18 Nov 13 UTC I find this game absurd and take no pride in winning it...
18 Nov 13 UTC another game.. and i'm pissed again. What the heck france? I have every opportunity to kill you right away, and i try to save you.
18 Nov 13 UTC i tried so hard to be friends france... Was hoping you'd go for italy but no..
18 Nov 13 UTC cc, don't know why you were coming after Sweden and giving France all the English centers. That just gave him the game.
18 Nov 13 UTC Come again?
18 Nov 13 UTC yea guess i should have gone for france, but figured he''d go for italy, they'd get in a stalemate and i could stab france.
18 Nov 13 UTC Bag, you played well. When someone gives you a win, just say thanks.
18 Nov 13 UTC I was going to keep away from you, then Russia got stopped pretty bad, so I figured I'd go with your lands. I noticed your support into London etc.
18 Nov 13 UTC oh well
18 Nov 13 UTC exactly :P
18 Nov 13 UTC see y'all next time.
18 Nov 13 UTC I must also thank everyone that didn't try to stop me.
18 Nov 13 UTC Have a nice evening, cya :)
18 Nov 13 UTC lol and i guess so wrong with russia in the beginning. and russia i had to go for you, because with england gone it was clear you were going 2 north
18 Nov 13 UTC France you bastard, if you had even the slightest hint of honor you should've just voted draw-cancel the second England was gone. There's no surer way to win than to be France when England decides not to even play.
18 Nov 13 UTC its true, we should have canceled
18 Nov 13 UTC but to frances credit he had his cancel vote off, idk why frickin russia didn't vote cancel and end it
18 Nov 13 UTC but you just had to scum it up and waste everyone's time for a few hours for some arbitrary point.
18 Nov 13 UTC and Russia was an idiot for allowing it instead of taking the cancel when he had the brief chance
18 Nov 13 UTC exactly, i'm pissed lol
18 Nov 13 UTC Oh, fuck off, both of you. I never vote cancel when one country goes cd. It encourages bad behavior by people, letting them drop when they get a country they dont' like. The more you cancel games that way, the more it happens.
18 Nov 13 UTC Be pissed if you like, but you're idiots if you don't understand that.
18 Nov 13 UTC Learn to play the cd country as another game factor. It might improve your play...Germany.
18 Nov 13 UTC That doesn't even make sense. People will drop anyway, and they don't care what happens after they leave the game because they aren't in it. What does encourage bad behavior is allowing someone to start the game with a massive advantage and telling them it's okay to waste the time of all the other players for several hours playing a game irreparably unbalanced against them to score some easy points rather than being gracious and cancelling or drawing to start up another more fair game.
18 Nov 13 UTC You're just wrong, Shizoon. Experienced players can play through what appears to be an unbalanced position pretty easily. You've played what, 15 games? So you don't understand that Germany and I could easily have stopped France if Germany hadn't decided to come after Scandinavia. It would have been EASY. But Germany was an idiot and screwed the game in Frances favor by giving him all the English centers, Belgium and lots of room to operate. Dumb. Dumb. DUMB.
18 Nov 13 UTC Suck it up guys. Play through that kind of situation intelligently, and the game goes on just fine.
