24 May 16 UTC Spring, 1994: Small aside that this game map in its original rules has an air force unit which can move in land and sea, cannot capture SCs but can prevent another force from having access to their SCs.

England, France, Germany and Russia (I think) had that air force unit but it is not in the WebDiplomacy map. I don't know if it is a game balance issue or a coding issue that had it so it was removed. But the somewhat useless French fleet in Bordeaux was supposed to be an air unit.
24 May 16 UTC Autumn, 1994: Like usual.I am in the best situation again.
31 May 16 UTC Autumn, 1996: Hi New egypt here.
07 Jun 16 UTC Autumn, 1998: SPAIN!!!!!!
13 Jun 16 UTC Autumn, 2000: enjoying this a lot.
13 Jun 16 UTC Autumn, 2000: It was a good game but is almost over. Congrats on your upcoming victory
13 Jun 16 UTC Autumn, 2000: Hardly a victory for me, but I do enjoy when the folks who stab me don't outlive me for too long.
13 Jun 16 UTC Autumn, 2000: Oh you are Germany! Hey man, lol yeah I was thinking that you'd like that.

But really I think this whole mess is your fault. You should have been diplomacy influencing Spain to convince them to convince me to attack Britain. You dropped the ball and the Western alliance that SHOULD have had Germany ended up with Britain who lacked the backbone to stick with their allies.

And what you and I had was hardly a stab. We worked together for less than a year.
13 Jun 16 UTC Autumn, 2000: I haven't played diplomacy for very long, but I enjoy playing until things like this happen. We've been playing this game for a while, and it was a 5 bet game with a bunch of random people. Poland gave me an offer that seemed to good to be true, and it was. I bit on a fake and made a mistake. I bet none of you ever messed up when you started playing.
13 Jun 16 UTC Autumn, 2000: The part that ruins the game, however, is people like Germany. You sucked at making good offers. Things didn't fall your way in a 5 point game. Yet you feel the need to come back and revel in someone else's success because you weren't good enough to win yourself this game. I don't claim to be a good diplomacy player at all, but hey, I did a lot better than you this game, and I am taking the fall for my own mistake, rather than being a whiney punk who acts like a ten year old.
13 Jun 16 UTC Autumn, 2000: Things fall into place for the craziest reasons sometimes. Poland and Turkey both got off to great starts because Ukraine and Russia were awful. Did everyone see the Ukraine move to Moldova to start the game? sheesh. Stuff happens. People mess up. Just enjoy the game and try to not make the same mistakes over and over again. And don't be a child like Germany.
13 Jun 16 UTC Autumn, 2000: Britain don't take it too seriously. Germany is allowed to gloat since he's the biggest loser and sucks the worst. Last place is allowed to delight in the fall of people better than them.
13 Jun 16 UTC Autumn, 2000: If you think that the mild, one-line comment I made was objectionable, then you are playing the wrong game my dude. I'll mention your concern-trolling when I'm at the Diplomacy world championships later this month in Chicago though. It will get quite a laugh out of people.
13 Jun 16 UTC Autumn, 2000: Wow, what a life you must live
13 Jun 16 UTC Autumn, 2000: I didn't know they had a world championship for Diplomacy. Does it include participants from other countries or is it like baseball and just America?
13 Jun 16 UTC Autumn, 2000: Idk. I just know that all you have to do to compete is pay an $80 entry fee. Which is why that comment was laughable.
13 Jun 16 UTC Autumn, 2000: I could use my paypal and also be headed to the "diplomacy world championships later this month" if I wanted to. The registration website makes it so easy that even Germany was able to register.
14 Jun 16 UTC Autumn, 2000: If its a WORLD Championship that obviously includes all countries like Hawaii and Alaska..

;-)
14 Jun 16 UTC Autumn, 2000: People from all over the world come. I think the registration fee is actually about $35, which mostly goes to pay for trophies and such. It rotates every year between the States, Europe, and Australia.. This year I think about 100 people are registered. It's loads of fun. Playing in person is a very different experience from playing online.
15 Jun 16 UTC Spring, 2001: Registration $35 ..Flight 4k and 26hrs from where I am to LA.
19 Jun 16 UTC Spring, 2002: Touche Egypt
21 Jun 16 UTC Autumn, 2002: lol that is probably it for me but good game everyone.

I had fun and I hope you did too.

:-)
21 Jun 16 UTC Autumn, 2002: Thank you for being such a sporting fellow France. It's been a pleasure, and I hope to play with you again in the future :)
21 Jun 16 UTC Autumn, 2002: Keep in touch on gaming conversations at the Diplomacy subbreddit: https://www.reddit.com/r/diplomacy/

we need more people in the conversation
21 Jun 16 UTC Autumn, 2002: Nice stab Poland
21 Jun 16 UTC Autumn, 2002: But I got to know: Turkey did no one talk to you about the three way draw or did you just never buy into it?
21 Jun 16 UTC Autumn, 2002: I did. I guess poland got hungry :)
21 Jun 16 UTC Autumn, 2002: If you bought into the 3 way endgame why did you attack Spain?

If I were Poland and pitched the 3 way tie and you agreed but still attacked Spain I would attack you as well.
21 Jun 16 UTC Autumn, 2002: Yeah. It was a mistake. I'm just going to try to hold my line now.
21 Jun 16 UTC Autumn, 2002: So sorry poland/spain! I won't bother y'all anymore
23 Jun 16 UTC Spring, 2003: Well I'm still keen for the end game 3 way draw....
23 Jun 16 UTC Spring, 2003: Me too. Can we all be friends again?
23 Jun 16 UTC Spring, 2003: I don't get a vote but considering it is chump change I think you should let Egypt and Britain survive in the draw too. Yes, Britain is the reason I didn't survive but neither Egypt nor he didn't quit like a spoil sport when it was clearly a lost cause. I think that deserves an endgame.
23 Jun 16 UTC Spring, 2003: My draw vote is in. Poland, we're waiting
24 Jun 16 UTC Great game all! It was a pleasure to play with you
25 Jun 16 UTC Thanks for the game guys :)
25 Jun 16 UTC Yes, good game.
