23 Dec 15 UTC Spring, 1901: Hey everyone! This is your chance to test out your crazy strategies!
I was hoping to get either Italy or Austria, I had a great Idea I wanted to try. Oh well

Good luck all!
23 Dec 15 UTC Spring, 1901: Good luck!
23 Dec 15 UTC Spring, 1901: Moderator: (Hellenic Riot): I'm interested to see how this pans out, and see how Unranked works in action. I hope to see some entertaining craziness. Good luck

- Big brother is watching you.
23 Dec 15 UTC Spring, 1901: Smh
23 Dec 15 UTC Spring, 1901: Happy skullduggery ;-)
23 Dec 15 UTC Spring, 1901: This game feels a bit like the "man tree" some friends and I put up each year as bachelors. The intent was to break every rule our mothers or girlfriends had about decorating Christmas trees. We intentionally put clumps of tinsel together, ornaments of the same type very close to each other, etc. My personal contribution was a star tree topper made from a Coors light can. It actually didn't look too bad.
23 Dec 15 UTC Spring, 1901: Greetings from Turkey ladies.
24 Dec 15 UTC Autumn, 1901: Merry Christmas all.
25 Dec 15 UTC Autumn, 1901: Merry Christmas you galoots. Unless you aren't Christian or secular Christmas celebrants like I am. Then just have a good day!
26 Dec 15 UTC Autumn, 1901: Happy belated Christmas everyone
26 Dec 15 UTC Autumn, 1901: Happy Boxing Day! To those that celebrate it.
26 Dec 15 UTC Autumn, 1901: And thank you, it was a very nice Christmas. I think including today and tomorrow we will have had all of the immediate family through the house except for my newphews in West VA. and Phoenix, and my niece in Texas.
27 Dec 15 UTC Spring, 1902: What's up with the draw / cancel vote Shadowplay? Another commitment?
27 Dec 15 UTC Spring, 1902: No other commitments to speak of CA. Just done with all the multis that ruin this site. I'm seriously starting to think this should be a paid service only.
27 Dec 15 UTC Spring, 1902: Sorry to hear that man, You're a good player. Have you had trouble with multi in higher point games?
27 Dec 15 UTC Spring, 1902: Do you think there's a multi in this game? Or what
27 Dec 15 UTC Spring, 1902: I should have qualified my previous statement - I have no suspicion whatsoever of multis / metas in this game. Having said that, my overall experience on webdip is being spoiled by the few players, that all of us who play enough know, are multis and repeat multis.

I'm just over it guys so I've put up the draw / cancel on all of my games (one of which has already been impacted by a multi ban). In no way will it jeopardise the way I play this game and I will see it out to the end. The only reason I don't have 100% reliability is because I left a high stakes game that turned out to be full of multis.

Spent a fair bit of today talking with the mods. I honestly thought it was a lot easier for them to identify the multi account holders than it really is. They do a really tough job and I actually feel bad for them because of the time wasted on trivial things like figuring out who's cheating instead of improving the site (this game we're in is an example of what we could all benefit from if the mods had more time to develop the site).
27 Dec 15 UTC Spring, 1902: Sorry for the wall of text.
27 Dec 15 UTC Spring, 1902: The game in question that took away my 100% reliability;

27 Dec 15 UTC Spring, 1902: No worries dude. If you want to cancel this one I am okay with that. Sorry that you are having a bad experience. I guess I do not pay much attention to the multi situation. I am sure that I have lost games to multis but I once the game is over it is forgotten with me, unless somebody really went above and beyond in a positive or negative way. Those tend ot stick with me. BESM and I worked a beautiful Austria - Turkey alliance several years back that I will remember for a long time. That's the number one problem I would have with multi's though. Just that they run good and competitive players off.
27 Dec 15 UTC Spring, 1902: Thanks CA.

I'm staying in this game to the end and I'm going to play as hard as I can. This is a good group of players and we're all trying alternative strategies here that we all want to see develop.
30 Dec 15 UTC Autumn, 1903: Good game Austria!
31 Dec 15 UTC Autumn, 1903: Enjoy the rest of the game everyone!
31 Dec 15 UTC Autumn, 1903: It's a shame you are leaving the game, faithful ally. Now I'll have to solo all by myself! Hahaha! Yeah.
03 Jan 16 UTC Autumn, 1904: Good luck to everyone else!
03 Jan 16 UTC Autumn, 1904: Sorry to see you go so soon!
03 Jan 16 UTC Autumn, 1904: GG Italy!
03 Jan 16 UTC Autumn, 1904: GG Italy!
06 Jan 16 UTC Autumn, 1905: I am really glad this is an unranked game :-)
06 Jan 16 UTC Autumn, 1905: I think at this point it would take a last minute alliance to stop Russia. I fear I have lost any trust that France had for me. Can we draw this one, since it goes away when we stop it anyway?
06 Jan 16 UTC Autumn, 1905: This was bound to happen.
06 Jan 16 UTC Autumn, 1905: My daughter just did a term paper on geography and strategy in building empires. This game came in handy to talk to her about some of her misconceptions :-)
06 Jan 16 UTC Autumn, 1905: :^(
06 Jan 16 UTC Autumn, 1905: okay, I'm not familiar with that particular emoticon.
07 Jan 16 UTC Autumn, 1906: It means you should've listened to me in Spring 1904.
11 Jan 16 UTC Alright, this was fun but I'm over it. GG everyone
11 Jan 16 UTC Good game
11 Jan 16 UTC It was interesting. Russia as an ally to Germany is great for Russia but too dangerous for Germany. That was kind of what I thought, but I wanted to try something weird. Good game all.
12 Jan 16 UTC I had fun. My only regret was stabbing you Germany. Although it would have been the other way around soon enough. Also, I'm happy as long as I did better than yoyo ;)
12 Jan 16 UTC lol wouldn't have lasted one bit if we played on
12 Jan 16 UTC That's not how this game works. If you took down your draw vote like I would have loved you to I would have.
