21 May 16 UTC Autumn, 1903: I'll even give you this public offer; destroy GoL or I will commit as many units as I can to destroying you. This is public so that turkey and Austria know you'll be in a 2 front war otherwise and so they don't have to wheel and deal with you because you are now fucked. So destroy GoL and I leave you be and you have leverage or don't and watch as your entire game implodes.

25 May 16 UTC Autumn, 1904: Well... Shoot.
26 May 16 UTC Spring, 1905: New world game in 4 days spread the word. gameID=179349
27 May 16 UTC Spring, 1905: Italy I say this with the most respect I can muster- I don't think you could've played this game any worse.
27 May 16 UTC Autumn, 1905: If I'm part of the draw, then I've played well. Everything else doesn't matter. Was I supposed to attack Turkey while France has an army in North Africa, Piedmont, and a fleet in the Western Med?
27 May 16 UTC Autumn, 1905: It's what you wanted, but it wasn't a good idea.
27 May 16 UTC Autumn, 1905: And I wouldn't be dishing out judgements and how well others have played if I was on the verge of being wiped out.
27 May 16 UTC Autumn, 1905: *about
27 May 16 UTC Autumn, 1905: In sum of squares, being in the draw doesn't matter much
27 May 16 UTC Autumn, 1905: I told you to give me orders, I did your orders, and you did something else. That's just a poor choice
27 May 16 UTC Autumn, 1905: Being in a draw is preferable to losing. Regardless of the "game type." Points are stupid. It's all about whether you survive or not.
27 May 16 UTC Autumn, 1905: Strongly disagree. Point of a game is to maximize results.
27 May 16 UTC Autumn, 1905: I'd say my results are pretty maximized compared to yours.
I'm Italy. Would you like me to play for the solo? I don't see how that's plausible. And I tried. I tried to go after Turkey, and I didn't receive Austria's help. I tried to go after France, and I didn't receive Germany's help. I'm done attacking.
27 May 16 UTC Autumn, 1905: Well let's say I'm excited to see what your past results are
27 May 16 UTC Autumn, 1905: I don't like leaving things at a sour note.
What was I supposed to do Russia? You believe that that the point of a game is to maximize results. I get that. That's usually how I try to play. But in this very game, what the hell could I have done to please you? Austria and I were supposed to be allies against Turkey. He didn't take support to Bulgaria early on (I fucking offered him it), and then didn't support me to Bulgaria when I asked for it (when he promised he would). Was I supposed to continue my war against Turkey on my own?? Of course not. So I head West. Germany and I were supposed to ally against France. Seeing as I was banging my head against a brick wall in the East, I turned West. All of a sudden, Germany's units start heading East. What the hell was I supposed to do? Attack France on my own? Would that have made you happy? Now, you offer to help me against Turkey. You wanted us to work together against him. France has 3 units at my doorstep. How could I have possibly went along with that? It would have been suicide. No, as an Italy that's survived to the midgame, this game is over for me. The best I can do is hope for a draw. If it's my lie that annoyed you (you offered to use your units as I saw fit), then I apologize. BUT AGAIN, what should I have done? The best thing you can do for me is disappear so that the remaining people agree on a draw. How was I supposed to tell you that? I couldn't have.
Final note:
You screwed me Austria but I screwed you back as well. I'm sorry and hope there's no hard feelings.
Germany, I didn't mean to call you out just now. What you did is a legitimate tactic. I was just trying to make a point.
France, sorry for the shit between us. You're kind of a dick, but I fucked around a little expecting German support so my acting like a dick back was justified (I wasn't screwing with you for the hell of it). Still, I hope we can put it all past us. I'd hate to end the game with us disliking each other. You're still a dick though.
Turkey, thanks for not acting like a dick (which would have been justified) after I tried going after you.
Russia, until next time.
27 May 16 UTC Autumn, 1905: Am I at least a big dick? I like being a big dick... Big dicks are better.
27 May 16 UTC Autumn, 1905: I will say Italy I think some better play on your part would have been to commit to the attack against me. I would actually respect your game ply this round. I get you were in a bind and don't really hold it against you. But like you said, I'm a dick... So as dicks do I am going to rub my forces all over yours.... Never penetrating though as that would be very unacceptable socially.
27 May 16 UTC Autumn, 1905: He is going to give you the "French Disease".
28 May 16 UTC Autumn, 1905: I prefer to call it foie gras....
31 May 16 UTC Autumn, 1905: So I guess we're going to drag this one out?
31 May 16 UTC Autumn, 1905: Why would you imagine that?
31 May 16 UTC Autumn, 1905: Somebody is giving us the won't-ready-up treatment.
01 Jun 16 UTC Autumn, 1905: Noo sorry I've been busy these last 3 days I'll start readying up sooner.
01 Jun 16 UTC Autumn, 1905: Should've mentioned it earlier apologies.
01 Jun 16 UTC Spring, 1906: Italy not readying up = not a crisis. Germany not having any bacon for tomorrow = crisis. Ugh. Priorities.
01 Jun 16 UTC Spring, 1906: Italy not readying up - not a crisis. Germany not having bacon - unfortunate. France being a dickhead for dickheads sake- priceless
02 Jun 16 UTC Spring, 1906: Classic example of France being a dickhead for dickheads sake.
02 Jun 16 UTC Autumn, 1906: Actually that was strategy. Unfortunately Russia only the strong survive. In a game of war you're enclave had to be absorbed and your offensive ability had to be crippled. Sorry.
02 Jun 16 UTC Autumn, 1906: But I'll always accept a dickhead trophy of you are offering.
04 Jun 16 UTC Autumn, 1906: So I'm out of the draw?
04 Jun 16 UTC Autumn, 1906: It's a brutal game sometimes. You needed to find a way to make yourself necessary, and it just didn't happen.
04 Jun 16 UTC Autumn, 1906: :(
04 Jun 16 UTC Autumn, 1906: Hey Italy you remember that one time you were bashing my result? Pepperidge farm remembers.
05 Jun 16 UTC Autumn, 1906: I was only bashing it because you were being mean :(
GG you bastards. I hope you and your whore mothers catch the plague.
05 Jun 16 UTC Spring, 1907: For the sake of balance, I should survive. Imagine the immense strategic value of Rome if it's held with either Turkey or France.
06 Jun 16 UTC I only drew because for some reason it says I missed a phase but I looked at the game this morning it was spring and I had like 1 day left. I think i may have accidentally pressed ready without knowing or something. Itaky my friend that was luck on your end.
06 Jun 16 UTC You definitely NMR-ed, France. You must have just misread the timer. GG all.
06 Jun 16 UTC Yea it's cool. I was a little .... Not in the right state of mind..... When I looked this morning so I get it. But gg guys.
06 Jun 16 UTC GG, everyone!
