27 Apr 16 UTC Autumn, 1901: Italy not only agreed with the convoy, but also said he was going to Munich. Don't trust him: he will take what he can from you, and then blame you for leaving centers undefended.
02 May 16 UTC Autumn, 1902: Shouldn't England be in civil disorder by now? (2 phases missed)
02 May 16 UTC Autumn, 1902: And congratulations to Leicester City!
19 May 16 UTC Autumn, 1905: Yes i think it should be .. you are doing great
23 May 16 UTC Spring, 1906: Hi Everyone

Happy to join the game - can you let me know where the game is up to

I am new to this site so bear with me while I learn

Have played a fair bit of Dip over the years but not on this site

Please be gentle with me

25 May 16 UTC Autumn, 1906: For some reason I thought you were NOT able to break your own support

Still a dumb move but I recall having a fairly fierce debate about it years ago . . . and loosing having to agree that you could not break your own countries support

Hence I have Not got into KIE

Anyone else no this technicality

25 May 16 UTC Autumn, 1906: Yes, I did by accident two turns back. But I knew the rule, that indeed you can cut your own support.
27 May 16 UTC Spring, 1907: How come no one is talking to me . . . am I doing something wrong?
27 May 16 UTC Spring, 1907: I'm dead, and mostly tuned out, which is why I'm not talking.
27 May 16 UTC Spring, 1907: Well, right now you're talking in global chat. You could try a more direct communication line with the seperate countries to the right. But I agree, this is not the most talkative game of diplomacy I've played.
27 May 16 UTC Spring, 1907: I did my best to break the ice!
27 May 16 UTC Spring, 1907: Well that's true. But I couldn't really answer you, cause I don't really mind the dismemberment that much. Sorry :)
28 May 16 UTC Spring, 1907: Thats better :-)

For the record I have picked up the abandoned Germany to help you guys finish the game which seems to be a fairly obvious RT

I will resist to the last
31 May 16 UTC Autumn, 1907: Love Italy consistently submitting orders no matter how tough things get. Not nearly all diplomacy players are like that.
01 Jun 16 UTC Spring, 1908: Thats the minimum standard for me joining a game as we all know you cant win them all
02 Jun 16 UTC Spring, 1908: The captain doesn't abandon his ship.
07 Jun 16 UTC Too little too late, Turkey. Victory is mine.
07 Jun 16 UTC T was a fun game, everyone!
08 Jun 16 UTC I joined the game to help out and noticed that RT had all but taken over the board

I tried to get France to work to stop it but they just wanted to smash me

I tried to get Turkey to stop Russia getting 18 but he didn't seem to care so . . .

we all lose

Not very well played except for Russia who had an excellent and well earned result

08 Jun 16 UTC Yep, at one point every other country thought I was their ally.
A well timed and coordinated coalition attack would've been able to stop me up untill last turn though. So I wasn't exactly sitting comfortably.
09 Jun 16 UTC Ah the mark of a great diplomat :-)

Congrats RotBlau
09 Jun 16 UTC Thanks! :) I wish you all the best of luck in further diplomacy games. See ya!
