22 May 15 UTC Autumn, 1905: Thank you.
23 May 15 UTC Autumn, 1905: (ghug): It's looking like a replacement will be necessary. I have someone lined up, but he can't take over until Tuesday. I'm continuing to look for someone to take over sooner.
24 May 15 UTC Autumn, 1905: OK ty
26 May 15 UTC Autumn, 1905: (ghug): Please welcome new Italy.

I'm going to unpause and give you all the full phase length.
27 May 15 UTC Autumn, 1905: Welcome!
27 May 15 UTC Autumn, 1905: Albion - you are most gracious. We wish you success in all your northern endeavours!!!!
28 May 15 UTC Autumn, 1905: Alas - it was short - I wish I could say that it was sweet but that would be fibbing - farewell cruel world - it was not meant for one as beautiful, cultured, refined, entertaining, erudite, well read, as yours truly. We hardly had a chance to get to know each other. TOODLES
29 May 15 UTC Autumn, 1905: I'm sure I missed it being posted somewhere, but anyone know where the actual tourney boards are being served from? I'd like to see the overall standings based on games that have ended up until this point.
29 May 15 UTC Autumn, 1905: (ghug): http://tournaments.webdiplomacy.net/online-diplomacy-championship/odc-2015
29 May 15 UTC Autumn, 1905: ty sir
29 May 15 UTC Autumn, 1905: Fuckers.
29 May 15 UTC Autumn, 1905: Language language - it is only a game after all
29 May 15 UTC Autumn, 1905: I know, and it's only what you are.
31 May 15 UTC Spring, 1906: Oh, to be unloved - and to follow the bitter Russians into the abyss of history - to be forgotten before even being known - what a bitter pill to swallow - and I thought (wrongly) that I would be welcomed with open arms.

Perhaps this world was never meant for one as beautiful as me...
02 Jun 15 UTC Autumn, 1906: gg Italy. Thanks again for joining and saving us a missing player. :)
03 Jun 15 UTC Autumn, 1906: Yeah....thanks Italy, for being a bitch and dying when you had no chance to live, so that others could live. We thank you for not having us cancel the game when we should, so that we could fuck you and make you take a loss. <thumbs up> Awesome pants!!!
03 Jun 15 UTC Autumn, 1906: You don't think that they're a tad to tight? They don't make me look fat?
03 Jun 15 UTC Autumn, 1906: By the way, everyone seems to be talking about me in the past tense. Am I already dead and simply haven't realised it?
03 Jun 15 UTC Autumn, 1906: You said bye a turn ago to the whole board.
03 Jun 15 UTC Autumn, 1906: That was but a cry for help - against the winds of war - into the dark dark night. I was hoping that once you all discovered what a talented, sympathetic and charming fellow I was that someone would run to my succor. Any takers; anyone; someone; please????
03 Jun 15 UTC Autumn, 1906: Ok sure, I'll help you. What do you need?
03 Jun 15 UTC Autumn, 1906: Can you spot me 50 so I can rent a row boat? I'm kinduv in a tight corner here.
03 Jun 15 UTC Autumn, 1906: And thank you Albion - that is very noble - all other takers welcome!!!
03 Jun 15 UTC Autumn, 1906: 50 dip points?
03 Jun 15 UTC Autumn, 1906: I don't think the ferry company accepts dip points. A case of French brandy might get me safely out of this mess though. Or even better, if France would be gracious enough to retreat out of Naples before the end of the Autumn so that I do not lose the SC, I can live on (if only to survive a turn or two - though to survive the game would be a major major bonus). And if you do intend to eventually draw, what is one extra drawee (or is that drawer) between friends????
03 Jun 15 UTC Autumn, 1906: I'm send you a warm hug.
03 Jun 15 UTC Autumn, 1906: And give up my imminent solo??
03 Jun 15 UTC Autumn, 1906: A warm hug, and the sentiments behind it do not replace Naples with its sidewalk cafés and drive-by shootings, but hey, beggars can't be choosers and it is definitely a close second - I'll take it gladly.

And Albion, we all know that you're desperate to conquer Germany if only to get yourself a decent cold beer and a knockwurst. How you've managed not to starve to death given what passes as food north of the Channel is beyond me.
03 Jun 15 UTC Autumn, 1906: Good game Italy.
03 Jun 15 UTC Autumn, 1906: Thank you - so long all - this is really and truly the end - Cheers!
05 Jun 15 UTC Spring, 1907: England, you do realise that if Austria solos you are a survivor (aka loser) regardless of how many supply centres you have. Might it not be prudent to ally with France and whatever is left of Germany to half the red (dark pink?; salmon? adobe?) Austrian tide before he accumulates any additional SCs?

Just asking.
05 Jun 15 UTC Spring, 1907: What, serious??!?

Over at the site i came from whoever holds Denmark at the end is declared the winner, you guys sure do have some complicated and unconventional rules over here. Well shoot, now i have to completely rethink my entire strategy.

Thank you 2nd-eliminated-guy, i could really use a crackerjack like you in my war room.
05 Jun 15 UTC Spring, 1907: Any time!
05 Jun 15 UTC Spring, 1907: And you do realise, I stepped into the tourney at the request of a third party to move things along - I've never joined a tourney before and am unlikely to do so in future - I was thus unaware of the rules and their nuances.

Remember - snarknosity is unbecoming - especially in the English who do not have the latin "je ne sais quoi" to pull it off. Now the French and the Italians on the other hand can be snarky and one would never even realise that one is being insulted that's how good they are at it.
05 Jun 15 UTC Spring, 1907: I was going for dry wit. That's our thing.
05 Jun 15 UTC Spring, 1907: Dry, like in a martini - that works
05 Jun 15 UTC Spring, 1907: So, if the objective is not a solo, what is the objective of a tourney?
05 Jun 15 UTC Spring, 1907: to win the tourney
06 Jun 15 UTC Spring, 1907: And how does win the tourney? Is it by being the big man on the board at the time of a draw?
06 Jun 15 UTC Spring, 1907: There's a page that explains the tournament rules somewhere.
06 Jun 15 UTC Spring, 1907: Damn....I thought for sure I'd wake up to my inevitable banning...heh heh...

Still time to lick all your asses.
06 Jun 15 UTC Spring, 1907: Well....that was the wrong game....heh heh...
06 Jun 15 UTC Spring, 1907: hahaha
06 Jun 15 UTC Spring, 1907: (ghug): I can still ban you if you want.
08 Jun 15 UTC Autumn, 1907: Well, its been a fun game. Germany / Turkey, thank you for playing through the end and I do hope to play with all of you as the tourney continues.

Once disbands are done I hope my allies vote draw as well.
08 Jun 15 UTC Ok England, the ball is in your court now.

To the others, I echo France's sentiments. Good game by all.
08 Jun 15 UTC Good game all.
09 Jun 15 UTC Is there any way of finding out who the first Russia and first two Italys were?
09 Jun 15 UTC You'd probably need to ask ghug.
13 Jun 15 UTC Congratulations to VillageIdiot, superchunk, and Fatmo. Thanks to everyone for a good game.
