19 Feb 15 UTC Autumn, 1903: O vile traitors! May thy souls be taken by lucifer to the depts of his blistering lair. - bye now!
20 Feb 15 UTC Autumn, 1903: Obviously, Germany Russia and Austria have made an alliance possibly outside the game. Top Tip: never join a game with points-per-supply center with anonymous players, they might be anonymous to you.. but not to each other. Good game guys.. thanks
20 Feb 15 UTC Spring, 1904: I made an alliance with Germany and Russia in the game you fool. Just because you are inept don't blame and accuse other people.
20 Feb 15 UTC Spring, 1904: We can see that you idiot... the question is... is it outside the game.. I never seen a game where 3 people leave all their SCs open and attack the others especially in an anonymous game where nobody knows who the other person is. Unless you have a deal outside the game, you cannot trust each other. It could well be the same person playing..
20 Feb 15 UTC Spring, 1904: Um....looking at the map....the open home centers of all three of us are able to be covered in the event of "unplanned movements" If you look. If I moved toward Austria or Germany they could easily take one army and move it back. Same goes for Myself.

I have always been mindful (in the game of Diplomacy) to trust people....a little. :P But, if you blindly trust people then that is foolish. I am always under the impression that at any moment Germany could turn on me, or Austria could turn on me, or both could. I am SURE they are always under the same impression. BUT the ONLY way we can cooperate and obliterate Turkey and Yourself (France) like we did is trusting and cooperating....like we did and are still doing. Especially in a points per supply center game.
20 Feb 15 UTC Spring, 1904: Yeah, what intrigues me is how in an anonymous game you chose the exact 2 guys you thought you can and need to trust to obliterate the other guys. Some freaky mind reading I suppose.
20 Feb 15 UTC Spring, 1904: or a chat over a cuppa with your colleague..
20 Feb 15 UTC Spring, 1904: or talking to yourself with a German or Austrian voice pretending to be someone else...
20 Feb 15 UTC Spring, 1904: Just because you couldn't manage an alliance dont blame other people who did that, if you think that there are multiaccount or PGAs, contact the moderator if he can discover something strange, but i assure you that nothing exist.
20 Feb 15 UTC Spring, 1904: I actually tried to work wirh England, but england demanded Norway....I wanted Norway, so I sided with germany because he was much friendlier than England and demanded nothing. He was better at negotiating.
20 Feb 15 UTC Spring, 1904: Also, I had agreements with both Turkey and Austria. I had to make a decision on whih one to side with, and give the makeup of the map at the time of the decision Turkey was a weaker opponent.
03 Mar 15 UTC Autumn, 1907: Good game sir. I don't think I can stop you from getting 18.
05 Mar 15 UTC Thank you, i didn't want to claim victory too early, good game of you too.
Too bad people thought the three of us were cheating, that ruined a little the game.
