05 Oct 16 UTC Autumn, 1905: And so have you.
05 Oct 16 UTC Autumn, 1905: This has to be the weirdest argument I've ever seen in diplomacy.
05 Oct 16 UTC Autumn, 1905: Its not an argument. Lol.
08 Oct 16 UTC Spring, 1906: Never in my life have I seen a situation like this where so much can be gained or so much can be lost, and it's completely down to luck.
11 Oct 16 UTC Autumn, 1906: Is anyone still talking in this. Nobody has messaged me in almost 5 days.
11 Oct 16 UTC Spring, 1907: I'll talk to anyone who can guarantee me survival :)
13 Oct 16 UTC Autumn, 1907: Nice solo France. In hindsight when Turkey and Italy doubled down on fighting each other thats when you knew.
13 Oct 16 UTC Autumn, 1907: 8 more to go yup almost there. *insert sarcasm
13 Oct 16 UTC Autumn, 1907: He's upset because of the seven sc's available for France to capture in Germany and England & Scandinavia six are currently his ( Germany )
Then France. pinches Tunis & it's a solo in four moves....or a few more
13 Oct 16 UTC Autumn, 1907: Or grabs Warsaw not Tunis
13 Oct 16 UTC Autumn, 1907: Get rid of another player and my vote to draw is in. Would you like me to stop in my tracks after I was lied to by Germany twice?
13 Oct 16 UTC Autumn, 1907: If France can find a way to solo that doesn't attack my sc's why should I with Turkey stuck in the corner try to prevent him ?
13 Oct 16 UTC Autumn, 1907: Go ahead and try to defeat Germany
13 Oct 16 UTC Autumn, 1907: Germany my friend would you like me to let you on your merry way after you acted like the biggest asshole I've ever had the misfortune to play with? I let lots of shit you said slide and tried to keep us from fighting and yet you continued. Consider this making up for that. Anyone interested in seeing the bullshit? Give me a sec.
13 Oct 16 UTC Autumn, 1907: I don't understand why you can't go back to older messages fuck.
13 Oct 16 UTC Autumn, 1907: Turkey stop complaining. Get rid of Russia then we'll talk. Would you like a 6-way draw?
13 Oct 16 UTC Autumn, 1907: I'd love to be part of a 6 way draw :)
13 Oct 16 UTC Autumn, 1907: Italy can lock up the Mediterranean as of right now, while my fleets are still up North. Does it really look feasible that I can attack Italy?
Get rid of one more nation then we'll talk.
13 Oct 16 UTC Autumn, 1907: Okay. Ill see what I can do.
13 Oct 16 UTC Autumn, 1907: "To-morrow, and to-morrow, and to-morrow, creeps in this petty pace from day to day, to the last syllable of recorded time; and all our yesterdays have lighted fools the way to dusty death. Out, out, brief candle! Life's but a walking shadow, a poor player, that struts and frets his hour upon the stage, and then is heard no more. It is a tale told by an idiot, full of sound and fury, signifying nothing."
14 Oct 16 UTC Autumn, 1907: I will settler for nothing less than a 4 way draw. Preferably 3 way.
15 Oct 16 UTC Spring, 1908: Before my body I throw my warlike shield. Lay on, Macduff, and damned be him that first cries, "Hold, enough!"
15 Oct 16 UTC Spring, 1908: Id convoy you into France in a glorious banzai but youre a damn fleet.
15 Oct 16 UTC Spring, 1908: gg England
gg Austria...

gg me?
15 Oct 16 UTC Spring, 1908: luckily theres 18 centers still up for France to grab so he can solo.
21 Oct 16 UTC Cheers all
21 Oct 16 UTC Lol.
21 Oct 16 UTC gg people
21 Oct 16 UTC First time ever in a game with majormitchell or hannibal. Intetesting.
21 Oct 16 UTC Bloomin' brainbomb ...now all that scaremongering propaganda from Germany during the game becomes less surprising.. Notice how I helped the chap with Italy & he needed a points score as it turns out....I thought the wily Hannibal might have been up to something so another multi unit build in Italy was required....damo666 was damn lucky I had Turkey rather than you
21 Oct 16 UTC I should've asked brainbomb to hold in Warsaw and told him that I'd support him. That and the Italian move to Serbia were two things that destroyed any chance of a solo :(
Well played Mitchell allowing damo to take Serbia.
21 Oct 16 UTC Yeah damo666 was lucky! You all got what you deserved. Hannibal, well negotiated but calm down on the language please. Cheers Major, most patronising after what I felt a good deal. And well done brainbomb on getting what you sought after playing like a plank. And kojabu say thanks.
21 Oct 16 UTC thanks
21 Oct 16 UTC lol
22 Oct 16 UTC Patronising ???? My comment that you was lucky to have me and not the lovable brainbomb as the player with Turkey was more about him than it was about us...and please be fair, I did warn you about France in general and mentioned defending Italy by occupying Tuscany at least twice first time said move army Rome there, 2nd time was move there not Piedmont....you young whippersnappers.....should I be thanking you for allowing me to play some small part in your success ?
22 Oct 16 UTC huh? I am legendary, and I got a draw share vs major mitchell. i can die happy
22 Oct 16 UTC Really impressive that you guessed what I was planning on doing exactly
22 Oct 16 UTC Brainbomb I have to ask, were you intentionally trying to get on my nerves or do you just talk like that with everyone?
22 Oct 16 UTC oh, yea, I always try to annoy people
22 Oct 16 UTC I see :)
22 Oct 16 UTC who the hell is barbara tuchman
22 Oct 16 UTC damo666.....45 completed games and no solo wins...I'm concerned and worried you might end up like brainbomb, who is, let me be diplomatic, perhaps to be regarded as like a "special needs" type of chap and indulged because of his "disadvantages"
I'm a clumsy mentor so I offer this suggestion.... You could look at the games played by the elite players... I do it to learn new tricks...so you pick out a top player, look at his player page and his completed games, you pick one where he's won with a particular country, open the game and open archived maps.. and then go back to the 1901 spring map then analyze the game.

I learnt a valuable lesson in how to better play England that way..but that's another discussion
22 Oct 16 UTC you literally sound like krellin.
22 Oct 16 UTC I hope you are being satirical brainbomb with your joy at humiliating me thoroughly ....yes Hannibal the scallywag has manipulated events and bluffed his way into a draw, thankfully I got 7 points and he only got 4 points
22 Oct 16 UTC Lol .."sound like krellin " that's a cheap shot
22 Oct 16 UTC :)
22 Oct 16 UTC & +1 who is Babs Tuchman ?
22 Oct 16 UTC Sorry Major didn't mean to be offensive. I'm quite pleased with that result in such exalted company. Maybe if I play another 50 games I might get a solo!
25 Oct 16 UTC I went through my games and it turns out brainbomb and I actually did play with each other before. He was Austria and I was Italy. We didn't get along there as well :)
25 Oct 16 UTC Lol. We got along just fine this game. But your builds signalled war
