21 Mar 14 UTC Spring, 1901: Austria why is your draw vote up?
21 Mar 14 UTC Spring, 1901: If we all draw now, everyone profits. We could make a new game (a private one) and play again.
21 Mar 14 UTC Spring, 1901: Or we could just play this game, and the same net profit will be dished out.
21 Mar 14 UTC Spring, 1901: It would be safer to draw now, but I'm alright either way. It's more enjoyable to actually play the game.
21 Mar 14 UTC Spring, 1901: I'm comfortable drawing at any point, so I'll just keep the vote up for when the remaining players vote the same way. Otherwise, I'll just win a bloody fight to the death.
28 Apr 14 UTC Spring, 1905: some of Turkey's remarks (verbatim) for comic relief:

Do you regret that stab yet? It's just a matter of time before Italy figures out which way the wind is blowing.

You can't kill me. Neither can Italy. And while we're at it, you plus Italy can't kill me. I will ally with whoever is left over after you inevitably stab each other once you realize that.

You were supposed to have this game in the bag ages ago. You don't. You're fucked.

In the meantime, I hate Italy, and I like England.

He's rapidly becoming a pain in everyone's ass, and it's just a matter of time until he's in yours.

Very tired of Italy's bullshit.

Fuck Italy. Take Sev.

Italy is a goddamn megalomaniac and you would have to be out of your mind to trust him for even one more turn.
28 Apr 14 UTC Spring, 1905: It appears I've made quite an impression...
30 Apr 14 UTC Autumn, 1905: Meanwhile, all I can think of is the Navy Seal copypasta.
30 Apr 14 UTC Autumn, 1905: Lol +1
02 May 14 UTC Autumn, 1905: Can someone explain the logic of having a draw vote up when all 7 countries are still alive?
02 May 14 UTC Autumn, 1905: I've had mine up the whole game.
03 May 14 UTC Autumn, 1905: :)
03 May 14 UTC Autumn, 1905: Actually, I'll take mine down, considering the countries who've agreed to a draw.
03 May 14 UTC Autumn, 1905: Owww Austria.....where is the love?
03 May 14 UTC Autumn, 1905: Austria has a big mouth but now he shows his real face. Coward!
03 May 14 UTC Spring, 1906: As I've said to your friend Turkey a time or two: meh.
03 May 14 UTC Spring, 1906: Well, with Russia out, we can make it a six-way. With the bans we had before the game started, we've got three players' worth of dead money in the pot. We'll make out like bandits if we draw now.
03 May 14 UTC Spring, 1906: That's what I suggested at the beginning, but I think that we (collectively) can make it a 3-way draw.
04 May 14 UTC Spring, 1906: You are smelling the taste of a solo victory right now. That's it! According to your build order an attack against Italy is the logical next step or should i say 'stab'?
04 May 14 UTC Spring, 1906: You can tell who has allied; those who have not voted for a draw or withdraw their vote for a draw:P
04 May 14 UTC Spring, 1906: How about we all make peace and attack the Swiss!
04 May 14 UTC Spring, 1906: Maybe the Central is dead, maybe it isn't.

Maybe we draw the game and take profits, maybe we don't.
07 May 14 UTC Autumn, 1906: As the "goddamn megalomaniac" of the group, I might insist that we eliminate Turkey before we consider a draw. He should be eliminated by the end of '07.

France would be easy enough to eliminate as well, but he's put up a pretty good showing for being down to three units, and he's a good sport. I could be convinced to join a 4- or 5- way draw. If people are insistent on thinning it down more than that, then I guess it's a different conversation.
07 May 14 UTC Autumn, 1906: I recommended a draw at the beginning, but at this point I'm doing well enough that I'd like (somewhat greedily) to eliminate a few more countries before drawing.
08 May 14 UTC Autumn, 1906: I'm happy to draw
08 May 14 UTC Autumn, 1906: Waiting on the Central Alliance to figure out that Austria is about to stab the rest of them.
09 May 14 UTC Autumn, 1906: What the did you just say about me, Turkey? I’ll have you know I graduated top of my class in the Navy Seals, and I’ve been involved in numerous secret raids on Al-Quaeda, and I have over 300 confirmed kills. I am trained in gorilla warfare and I’m the top sniper in the entire US armed forces. You are nothing to me but just another target. I will wipe you out with precision the likes of which has never been seen before on this Earth, mark my words. You think you can get away with saying that to me over the Internet? Think again, Turkey. As we speak I am contacting my secret network of spies across Europe and your IP is being traced right now so you better prepare for the storm, maggot. The storm that wipes out the pathetic little thing you call your life. You’re dead, Italy. I can be anywhere, anytime, and I can kill you in over seven hundred ways, and that’s just with my bare hands. Not only am I extensively trained in unarmed combat, but I have access to the entire arsenal of the United States Marine Corps and I will use it to its full extent to wipe your miserable country off the face of the continent. If only you could have known what unholy retribution your little “clever” comment was about to bring down upon you, maybe you would have held your tongue. But you couldn’t, you didn’t, and now you’re paying the price, you idiot. I will defecate fury all over you and you will drown in it. You’re dead, kiddo.
10 May 14 UTC Autumn, 1906: Look who it is again, ID Austria. I'm fed up with your shit faggot. The other day when you called me a newfag, yeah, haven't forgotten about that yet.

Fuck you I've been on here for months and probably get on here more than you anyways. Don't you know that you make yourself look like a newfag when you call others newfag?

Just because you learned how to hack your name and change it to "Austria" does not give you the right to disrespect anyone at any time.
18 May 14 UTC Autumn, 1907: As soon as the builds are done and Turkey's officially eliminated, I'll place my draw vote.
19 May 14 UTC Autumn, 1907: easy there, 4chan
19 May 14 UTC Autumn, 1907: Night night
19 May 14 UTC Autumn, 1907: That's a very good idea Italy! Austria you should consider to vote for a draw too.
19 May 14 UTC Autumn, 1907: I’m considering it.
21 May 14 UTC Just to make this formal--since I would like a draw at this point, I will consider myself an ally of anyone that has a draw vote up and an enemy to anyone that does not.
21 May 14 UTC I wanted a draw at the very beginning; I suppose that trying to preserve an old alliance won’t do much good.
21 May 14 UTC Also, this is a good example of true gunboat diplomacy.
21 May 14 UTC Good game!
