16 Jun 15 UTC Spring, 1901: Hi all, have fun.
16 Jun 15 UTC Spring, 1901: Good game to everyone. :)
16 Jun 15 UTC Spring, 1901: May everyone's stabs be perfectly timed, and stabs against them easily defended!
10 Jul 15 UTC Autumn, 1904: Just out of curiosity.
Did the player using Germany know how to speak?

It seems he simply made an account to join a single game exactly when needed and decided on an alliance on pure mindreading skills.

Not that it changes the game to me, I was going to be kicked anyhow, but it may be of interest for who is going to be faced with the gains coming from said behavior...

Of course I am not reporting anything, because it does not seems a rule break, but I would be really interested in knowing...
10 Jul 15 UTC Autumn, 1904: Maybe ask Russia...?
10 Jul 15 UTC Autumn, 1904: I wrote to Germany straight away, but he simply did not logged in anymore.
Just popping in the game at the correct moment and then disappear on what looks like a throwaway account.

To be clear, I am not accusing you, or Russia, or anyone else of anything. It is not my playstyle, and I do not think that accusations shall ever be made without solid proofs, which we obviously do not have.

I simply wanted to know if I am the only one that see it as strange.
10 Jul 15 UTC Autumn, 1904: I agree it is strange behaviour, but, like you say, people are allowed to be strange. Russia had a strong hand when the first Germany dropped out so it doesn't really change very much.
10 Jul 15 UTC Spring, 1905: As I said, it does not change much...
Still a weird move by the new Germany. I hope he does fare better in the next game he play.
11 Jul 15 UTC Spring, 1905: I don't always trust these new hop in players.
12 Jul 15 UTC Autumn, 1905: By the way...

Why do not we just team up and stop Russia in his track?
I do not see how anyone but him can solo, and I'd rather prevent it if possible.
12 Jul 15 UTC Autumn, 1905: If we can get Turkey to play ball and stay on the ball maybe. So far he has been untrustworthy.
12 Jul 15 UTC Autumn, 1905: The past is the past.
If we do not collaborate we've already lost.

Of course, Turkey and England, what do you think about it?
14 Jul 15 UTC Autumn, 1905: OK
20 Jul 15 UTC Autumn, 1906: Looks like it's congratulations to Russia on a game well played.
20 Jul 15 UTC Autumn, 1906: Agreed... Congratulation ggy.
20 Jul 15 UTC Autumn, 1906: Thanks but its not over yet!!??
14 Aug 15 UTC Spring, 1909: Ready up France, can't be that hard to decide to retreat to Paris??
14 Aug 15 UTC Spring, 1909: I like to take my time.
As you know it takes a while to ready up in Paris, we take fashion seriously...
14 Aug 15 UTC Spring, 1909: He cannot just come into Paris all in shambles. Even in retreat one has to be properly attired.
21 Aug 15 UTC Spring, 1911: Ok, everything got messed as XXX in the last phase.
Do we try the impossible to stop Russia or just reiterate compliments and let him win?
22 Aug 15 UTC Spring, 1911: Let him win.
22 Aug 15 UTC Spring, 1911: I also feel it is well deserved.
Enjoy your portuguese vacations ggy.
22 Aug 15 UTC Spring, 1911: Thank you, let's ready up and move on
22 Aug 15 UTC Spring, 1911: Congratulations ggy. Well deserved.
22 Aug 15 UTC Spring, 1911: its not over yet
