22 Feb 15 UTC Autumn, 1908: four way draw?
22 Feb 15 UTC Autumn, 1908: Agreed.
22 Feb 15 UTC Autumn, 1908: Four way meaning no Italy correct?
22 Feb 15 UTC Autumn, 1908: Yes, I hope so.
22 Feb 15 UTC Autumn, 1908: I'm ready to draw. Just destroy Italy and I'll capitulate. But before Italy is destroyed I'm going to operate as though the game will continue indefinitely.
22 Feb 15 UTC Autumn, 1908: Understandable.
22 Feb 15 UTC Autumn, 1908: Understood. I will do the same.
22 Feb 15 UTC Spring, 1909: France, it appears that you are making no attempt to actually eliminate Italy. Why?
22 Feb 15 UTC Spring, 1909: Must have been a miscommunication between England and myself.
22 Feb 15 UTC Spring, 1909: my bad.
23 Feb 15 UTC Spring, 1909: Gents , make clear who is taking Naples.
23 Feb 15 UTC Spring, 1909: I'd prefer to take Naples. France took Rome. It's only fair I get Naples, if only as a signal to me that France is not planning any subterfuge.
23 Feb 15 UTC Spring, 1909: That what I meant, at least it will be equal who takes Naples but take it :-)
24 Feb 15 UTC Spring, 1909: We decided that we will continue as if the game would continue indefinitely until italy is defeated. Thus, england gets naples as i promised him this spring.
24 Feb 15 UTC Autumn, 1909: Fine. Don't attack me in Smyrna. I will not draw if I'm kept from destroying Turkey.
24 Feb 15 UTC Autumn, 1909: Leave turkey alone
24 Feb 15 UTC Autumn, 1909: Lol. Welcome back Turkey! Okay. I won't invade Ankara. Happy?
24 Feb 15 UTC Autumn, 1909: Yes, very much so
24 Feb 15 UTC Autumn, 1909: Okay. Glad I can make everyone here happy.
24 Feb 15 UTC Autumn, 1909: You are a real Austrian.
25 Feb 15 UTC Autumn, 1909: What the hell. Do we want to end this game or not? Stop bullshitting me France.
25 Feb 15 UTC Autumn, 1909: Take a look at my orders before writing crap on the wall. Obviously, england and me missed our communications window again. Italy will be destroyed by end of the year, if turkey is gone by then we will draw. (sorry new turkey)
25 Feb 15 UTC Autumn, 1909: This is the second "miscommunication" that has occurred between you and England. It's not that hard to communicate. Someone just invade Naples and then let's draw.
25 Feb 15 UTC Autumn, 1909: Agreed. I will support Tyr to Naples this turn.

And as for you, please eliminate Turkey, since we agreed on a four-way, not a five-way. (sorry again, new turkey! But we didn't think someone would actually join in at this stage of the game...)
25 Feb 15 UTC Autumn, 1909: This is the original turkey, see his bet , the same like we payed, so it's the original. Only FYI.
25 Feb 15 UTC Autumn, 1909: Oh, I thought he was in CD and thus left. Sorry.
Anyway, we were going to settle for a four way and not a five way, or what's your opinion, England and Germany?
25 Feb 15 UTC Autumn, 1909: I'm in and agree your suggests.
25 Feb 15 UTC Autumn, 1909: I can only eliminate Turkey in the Fall. Otherwise he/she can retreat to the Black Sea and then Rumania/Sevastopol/etc. and stay alive indefinitely.
25 Feb 15 UTC Autumn, 1909: That's entirely sufficient.
26 Feb 15 UTC Spring, 1910: Excellent. Next turn I'll take Ankara and then let's all draw.
27 Feb 15 UTC Spring, 1910: No
27 Feb 15 UTC Spring, 1910: Viva la revolution
27 Feb 15 UTC Spring, 1910: Sorry Turkey. You are done. Done I tell you. Done!
28 Feb 15 UTC Autumn, 1910: VIVA LA REVOLUTION
28 Feb 15 UTC Autumn, 1910: Do we have to wait until builds are finished to hit draw?
28 Feb 15 UTC Autumn, 1910: Yes of course , otherwise turkey must also vote.
28 Feb 15 UTC Autumn, 1910: Come on Turkey finish your revolution with an explosion.
28 Feb 15 UTC I was going to make this last like a year but Austria went hard
28 Feb 15 UTC Turkey is no more
28 Feb 15 UTC Moment of truth. Will France stand by its word?
28 Feb 15 UTC I'm in and say thank you for a nice game, friendly greetings
28 Feb 15 UTC Well, you're the one who still has to push the button.
28 Feb 15 UTC Thank you all, as well, it was an interesting game indeed.
28 Feb 15 UTC The three western forces survieved, that is rare.
28 Feb 15 UTC To be honest I think I could have won this thing. Do you all agree? Not trying to brag-- just curious for a strategic breakdown. But you all seem like nice people, and I am trying to end all my diplomacy games so I can take a break from it-- so a draw was the right choice. I've been on this website for too much and too long!
28 Feb 15 UTC Yes , you was able to win this game. But for this you had to attack me at the same time as UK, than you got Munich and at least the game.
You see also, it's not easy to find seven honorable players for a game, someone is always s missing. Anyway , friendly greetings from Vienna
28 Feb 15 UTC i'd have to go back a couple years, but i think the chance to win was when you could have grabbed munich and berlin. we were struggling to get our fleets and armies into the west.
28 Feb 15 UTC You would have won if it wasn't for Englands effort to bring the three of us together against you at the last possible moment. Had we started working together just one phase later, there would have been very little chance for us. But the way it went, I doubt you would have been able to break our lines, even if you had taken Munich. Unless of course, we would have made some major mistakes.

Anyway, it was a rare occasion that the three western forces unite against a superior eastern opponent and actually manage to not only hold their ground but even push him back. And to be honest, I suspected this alliance to fall apart more than once.
28 Feb 15 UTC yeah, i would have to give the credit for this game to england. Not only was he the only one with enough foresight and took the Initiative to bring enemies together, he also was a great ally even when he had no chances of further expansion and all the opportunity to backstab. But he restisted the temptation knowing well that this would just have lead to an austrian victory.
28 Feb 15 UTC Thanks UK :-)
