Game drawn
04 Jan 15 UTC Autumn, 1997: Simply put, the German government found it intolerable that it could see Russian tanks from the windows of the Bundestag. How can everyday parliamentary procedure continue if a bunch of drunk Russians are being rowdy and doing donuts in their T-80s?
04 Jan 15 UTC Autumn, 1997: I think that you want to visit Krakow, exactly as your evil predecessor...
04 Jan 15 UTC Autumn, 1997: Conversely, i'm sure the people of Poland love having the Russian army stationed in their cities. :)
04 Jan 15 UTC Autumn, 1997: The tsar is a FATHER for these sad nations without guidance... :)
04 Jan 15 UTC Autumn, 1997: And actually the name "tsar" is not correct... We are almost in the XXI century. It is simply a name.
08 Jan 15 UTC Spring, 1999: I was wrong. It is probably correct that I die. I am curious to see how Italy+Egypt and Germany+England will treat the situation when I will be dead. Good luck, my dear. I will fight for each single center.
08 Jan 15 UTC Spring, 1999: I wouldn't blame Russia. They are right on their part I can say. But yes, Ukraine has been a real mastermind getting everybody together into Russia. Although its sad to see that Ukraine isn't in a very strong position at this moment. I pray that changes quickly. And Russia, its pleasing and impressive to see that fighting spirit from you. I respect you for that friend. Good luck to you and to all.
08 Jan 15 UTC Spring, 1999: I deserve it. My diplomacy was too weak before to do what it was written on the stars: to destroy my beloved ally, Ukraine. He would have do the same in a little time. It was geography. Then, after all, this situation is my fault. I deserve it.

The strange thing is that Ukraine (that was so able to convince all Europe that I was a problem, when he helped me for everything and he planned a lot of things against all you) will never see the end of this war.

I think that my tongue cannot do nothing more now. But no one can steal me my dignity.
08 Jan 15 UTC Spring, 1999: Your main mistake Russia was some of your moves which foreshadowed an impending attack. While I may not make it through this game I do believe I will not be completely destroyed by you, which would have happened otherwise, so I am at least happy for that.

It is sad that our old friendship had to come to this, but like you said, it was inevitable given our geography.
09 Jan 15 UTC Spring, 1999: Not by me, dear Ukraine, but by your "loyal" allies of today that are looking forward our destruction! :) Ask to Italy and Egypt if their intention is to stop after my destruction...
09 Jan 15 UTC Spring, 1999: Russia, you keep on crying about potentially losing which you well deserved due to being greedy. Meanwhile you are still quite large and powerful, and hoping you can turn at least Ukraine if not someone else against the others to buy yourself time. Which is fine, you are playing the game, but enough already with feeling sorry comments...
09 Jan 15 UTC Spring, 1999: If Russia is looking to turn me against you guys, he should at least stop attacking me XD
09 Jan 15 UTC Spring, 1999: For the moment I don't need to try to find allies, you are all together against me. It will be more easy when geography will play the main role for you. :)

I have only 11 centers. There is not enough space for you all. Assume balanced split. You are spending your efforts for four centers! And actually England seems to have not concrete advantage to help you. When London will understand that the war with Italy in the South and the war with Germany are in the structure of Europe, I hope to be live again to speak with him.
09 Jan 15 UTC Spring, 1999: Russia.. Mind you, 11 centers is more than handy to oppose everybody. We might be together but your moves are unusual and I think very few people would deny that.
09 Jan 15 UTC Spring, 1999: Russia, your plans will not work. You are trying to play everyone against one another, but we all see through that. And even if everyone only got 4 SC's that's 4 more than we would have had. :)
09 Jan 15 UTC Autumn, 1999: This reply is blind, dear Ukraine. The truth is that they can draw in one hundred or fight after this long second act. Your revenge will not save you. There is no space for everyone. They know this best than me. If they will be so proud to defeat me, go on. At the moment Egypt Britan and Italy have in their hands 12 centers more than me, you, Germany and Spain. My words are for Germany probably: you are a puppet.

In any case you and me will never see the end of this war. Be quiet about your choice to move all Europe against me. I will bring you in the grave with me.
09 Jan 15 UTC Autumn, 1999: I'm a puppet? Hahaha!!!
09 Jan 15 UTC Autumn, 1999: And England. I was so good with you. I trusted you. I have leaved you Norway, I never attacked you. Why are you helping these strange revengers? And moreover: revengers of WHAT? Ukraine was a wall between me and the power. What did I do of so evil? I defeat Poland simply using tongue. I started to use armies and immediately you are all against me. Such great strategy... Germany wanted move against you, do you remember? I always refused to help him. And now you are killing russian women and children for WHAT? The single unuseful center of Murmansk?!

I am almost without words. I am looking forward the third act with anxiety.

Ukraine wanted to attack both you, Egypt and Germany. You have to be grateful with me about my movements.
09 Jan 15 UTC Autumn, 1999: Yes. I wanted to attack England. That's why I supported him into Belgium, didn't take any spoils in France, and haven't moved toward him, nor have I built more than two fleets.
09 Jan 15 UTC Autumn, 1999: Germany I was right, I WAS RIGHT, since I never trusted you. You used my defensive armies as an excuse to move against me. But 11+9 centers are a good treasure to split between three powers...

Italy! Can you explain me what will you do when Madrid will be fallen? You will play risiko instead diplomacy? Sit down. Wait English fleets...

I have nothing more to say. I admitted my mistakes and it is sufficient. But if you will draw in 4 you are not aware of the opportunities of the map.
09 Jan 15 UTC Autumn, 1999: Thank you for sincerity Germany.
09 Jan 15 UTC Autumn, 1999: Um, you got 5 builds in one turn and violated the DMZ in Prussia and Silesia. You and Ukraine seemed to be solid allies. It's Diplomacy. I'm supposed to look at those three facts and just think "eh, he won't come after me".
09 Jan 15 UTC Autumn, 1999: Italy asked to me to move against Ukraine and I expected his help. Since he was moving against you I expected your support. The truth is that you, everyone, wanted to see me against Ukraine. It was my mistake, I admitted it. Now you can present this war as a revenge for poor Ukraine, but you all are quiet, since otherwise our alliance was very strong.

Since my diplomacy philosophy is not to draw with too many people, but try to win or at least to be in 2 or 3, I attacked Ukraine. Now you can eat my spoils as vultures. But that this is a strategic good choice NO. And this simply because there is no space for everyone. But we will see if I am mad or not.
10 Jan 15 UTC Autumn, 1999: Well, sometimes us vultures end up winning games...
10 Jan 15 UTC Autumn, 1999: Russia.. You talk about everybody being against you, and that everybody wanted to see you fight ukriane. Do you know the happenings on the western front? Everybody wanted me to fight France. Even though France was with me and he sweared on not turning his back( which he proved by attacking Spain straightaway), I fought him because every single player on the board told me about France versus England. So, I gathered Germany Italy and Spain to destroy off France as I wanted to avoid those talks. Now wasn't that similar to what has happened here with you??
10 Jan 15 UTC Autumn, 1999: Damn, if I had talked that much every time I was going to lose a game, I could have written a book by now.
Russia, you got greedy, over extended, attacked Ukraine when you should have worked together with him, and now you suffer consequences. Don't worry, there will be another game after this. That's what I always tell myself when someone stabs me and I start losing.
You keep crying and still keep on butchering Ukraine, how sad...
10 Jan 15 UTC Autumn, 1999: I am not crying, dear Egypt. I can lose when I can recognize that it is simply my fault. I am well aware of the existence of other game! :) But I like theatre, and then I become a bit dramatic when I lose! :)

I am, of course, better of who when he is losing he leave the game at all.
12 Jan 15 UTC Autumn, 2000: Not even Murmansk for London...
12 Jan 15 UTC Autumn, 2000: Can't help it. It was rightfully mine and was robbed of it. However, I wouldn't be too sad about that.
12 Jan 15 UTC Autumn, 2000: Russia, you are still trying to cause problems...
Britain, didn't know you were after Murmansk, you only had 1 unit next to it, couldn't really attack.
12 Jan 15 UTC Autumn, 2000: To all the powers of Europe. Another century is beginning. I have now another idea for Europe. Peace. Peace for all. I can forgive everything. Draw now, with me and Ukraine too. It is impossible to deny that we had a role in this war.

If someone will not draw, then it will be clear to Europe that they wanted all Europe. Probably they will move against England and Germany.
12 Jan 15 UTC Autumn, 2000: Russia, do you ever shut up? Can't you die in peace and dignity?
12 Jan 15 UTC Autumn, 2000: It is evident that what that I have to say it is not so good to hear for you... :) I will shut up when I will have no more units.
12 Jan 15 UTC Autumn, 2000: well we just have to make sure that happens sooner than later! thanks for reminding us we are slow
12 Jan 15 UTC Autumn, 2000: :) :) :) :) :)
12 Jan 15 UTC Autumn, 2000: And so you want a 5-draw??? I am without words. To keep a couple of points, what is the difference between this and to accept my draw now?
12 Jan 15 UTC Autumn, 2000: Difference is you. I am so annoyed by your behavior in this game that I do not want to see you not lose.
12 Jan 15 UTC Autumn, 2000: And so do you decide for all? Dear Egypt, I will shut up now. I cannot understand the precise reasons for which you are annoyed, but I am not interested in them. GG dear all. I am sure that a 5-draw in a game with 10 players will be a real satisfaction for you.
13 Jan 15 UTC Spring, 2001: i was in an italy-egypt alliance where italy won ( i was eygpt). i know people hate PPSC but it was a good solid alliance. you boys go for the four way
14 Jan 15 UTC Autumn, 2001: 10 points for each player... Bah.
16 Jan 15 UTC Autumn, 2001: I can see the seed of war again strong in you. I was wrong, I apologize.

Britain, I would like that you see that move against me helping Germany was not a good choice. Ukraine, I am sorrry for all. Sincere congratulations to Egypt, Italy and Germany. The last played a very good game, I think.

Now I can die happier than I have lived.
18 Jan 15 UTC Autumn, 2002: Well well Italy, your primary ally Egypt has stabbed your beloved Ukraine. Won't you go and fight Egypt for stabbing Ukraine, just the way you did for me and Germany? And I don't see any reason why the fleets and armies in Scandinavia shouldn't take Norway and Sweden from Germany too? I would sure like to know your reaction about this old friend.
18 Jan 15 UTC Autumn, 2002: Dear England, dear Germany and dear Ukraine
So did I be wrong or did I be right? It is a pleasure to see that at least Egypt and Italy played to win. Congratulations for both.
18 Jan 15 UTC Autumn, 2002: Wow Russia, you are possibly the biggest sore loser I have ever seen
18 Jan 15 UTC Autumn, 2002: I am not sore! :) But I like to be right. I don't like someone that say to me that I am wrong when I am right. :) :) :)
20 Jan 15 UTC Autumn, 2002: Italy doesn't even have the guts to reply. Or can you actually reply?
01 Feb 15 UTC Autumn, 2005: Goodbye guys.. It was nice playing with you. I assume its a 3-way draw now and I won't make you wait any longer.. Good luck fellas.. :-)
01 Feb 15 UTC Autumn, 2005: Nice playing with you, England.
01 Feb 15 UTC And good game everyone else! It was enjoyable.
02 Feb 15 UTC Good game guys!
